Sorry, a bit of a rant today, but I'm just so tired. I hate not having time with my family. I hate seeing my blog shrivel up and die. Is there any hope out there? Do good jobs still exist? Please don't tell me commission sales is the answer. Are there any other fellow nerds out there working 2 or more jobs? Is there a perfect dream job out there for a geek like me?

Sunday Reflections: Two Jobs Are Better Than One
So, as you all may know, I have been working 2 jobs for a little while lately. I've done the 2 job jazz in the past, and it looks like the 2 job tango will continue for me for some time now. I remember back in the day when you were pretty much insane to be working 2 jobs, but now-a-days I'm finding it's just the new norm! I met a guy that's struggling to run his own business while he works 4 other jobs on the side! It's all thanks to rising costs and wages staying flat for years, and a bunch of other hoo-haw I won't get into here. And I know college doesn't guarantee you a great job, but what the crap!? No one seems to freaking care that I have a BS degree (No pun intended. Actually, yes, pun intended. I actually have a BA degree). Even then, I have seen many skilled labor jobs that pay terribly. What's a dork to do? I wanna provide for my family. I want my wife to be able to be home with the kids. In the words of Nacho, "I wanna win!"
