A good friend of mine has been looking for a new apartment in NYC and just caught on to a REALLY nice rent controlled apartment in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn. The owner gave him a call and my friend is going to check it out tomorrow. It’s very likely that he’ll get it.
Now this guy is one of my best friends, I’ve known him since elementary school and for the last two years we’ve been talking about getting an apartment in the city. Of course he comes to me right away to fill me in and is all super excited about it.
I’m JUST starting a part time, three month, unpaid, internship and my hiring prospects for anything greater than minimum wage retail work are all but non-existent. The studio I’m interning at is very small so expecting to be picked up at the end of the internship would be foolish in the extreme. The apartment itself is an excellent value in an excellent part of the city. I feel like trash, having to tell my buddy that there’s no way I’d be able to afford the modest rate we’ve been quoted. He didn’t really show it but I could tell how disappointed he was. He even offered to spot me for a few months but I turned him down. Even though I pay all my own bills I’m already such a burden to my family I couldn’t imagine becoming a drain on one of my closest friends as well.
I feel like such a god damn fuck-up. Here’s an amazing opportunity to finally move out and get this whole adult life shit started and I’m too fucking incompetent to capitalize on it.
I’m too old to be where I am now. I’m on the fast track to being the weird 30 year old son who still lives with his folks and that kills me inside every godamn day.
dude i know how you feel. As much as I feel stifled by my family at times and like I’m missing opportunities because i finically CAN’T move out, I also don’t like that I am still financially dependent on my family - more so that I feel like I CAN’T do anything to help myself and/or make it easier for everyone. Just the fact that I STILL have to rely on someone to drop off/pick me up from the train station because I/we collectively as a family can’t get a second vehicle (not to mention its my fault we only have one car now) makes me feel like shit.
However its not uncommon for college grads to move back in with their parents right after college. I’m also starting to realize that freelancing isn’t as scary as I thought and am actually glad that freelance is a thing for artists because we can still work without having a permanent position.
Things will get better. Everything sucks now and believe me I’ve been struggling with the same negative mindset all summer, but try to focus on the positives: your parents DIDN’T leave you for the wolves after graduation (regardless of how annoying living at home may be), you HAVE an internship (even tho its unpaid, the experience, exposure and connections you’ll make will be beneficial in the long run) and you’re not alone, you have friends that are in the same situation and friends that will support you.
Knock yourself out, there’s plenty to choose from.
So I’ve been mulling over what to do with the blog named after my username that I haven’t been using. I decided I wanted blogs with names that better fit their purpose for everything else. Anyway it seems I will be using this blog to do my music things.
So going in line with this announcement I am considering starting to do Song Request Saturday’s. This would mean that I’d make a post stating that I’m accepting song requests and then later post that I am no longer taking submission. Depending on the popularity of this I will have to limit the number of songs that I actually end up doing covers of.
This post will serve the purpose of seeing if there is enough interest in something like for me to even bother doing it in the first place. So to the few people I have following me please reblog this and lets see how much interest it can drum up. If it gets enough then starting this Saturday or next (depending on how quickly it gets interest) I will start doing this.
Like or reblog this to show your interest please.
Thank you all and I hope you all have a wonderful day,
In case you are wondering the covers will be me doing Vocals and guitar or piano.
Hey guys my buddy is doing this song request cover thing, go give him a follow, request, and/or reblog to help get this neat idea and this aspiring singer/songwriter some exposure.
baw I like having new friends!
