The lengths I've gone to...

Today's quote: From the moment we enter this life we are in the flow of it. We measure it and we mock it, but we cannot defy it. We cannot even speed it up or slow it down. Or can we? Have we not each experienced the sensation that a beautiful moment seemed to pass to quickly, and wished that we could make it linger? Or felt time slow on a dull day, and wished that we could speed things up a bit?

You have all noticed the recent spate of garbage posts on here. Sad to say, I succumbed to the advertising devil in hopes of earning a little money to pay off a bill or two a month. I have not held a true job in over a year now, barring instances of working for a couple of weeks here and there on temp assignments. I thought the most inconvenience it would pose would be trying to find enough to fulfill the word requirement. The initial description assured people that they wouldn't find themselves writing something bad, like text advertising porn or something.

It may have not been that bad, but I started to experience doubts when I received an assignment on diet pills. Ok, most people know that you should be extremely careful with them, and that you have to be really strict in order to have a chance at maintaining any results that did come about. I tried not to be overly positive about it. But then I received an assignment for another diet pill that was a clear rip-off from Red Bull (Red Bullet). I decided then that I did not want to be a part of anything endorsing this sort of possible health hazard. I'm probably paranoid, but its nature is too dubious for me to continue.

Well, I finally got a job! Ironically, despite my decision to leave law school, I find myself writing for a company that publishes textbooks on real estate law. I get to help write the text and do all the other fun stuff. So far, the initial work I've been exposed to has reminded me of Property with Kurtz. Who knew I'd have to see "fee simple absolute" again?
