I don't want to be depressed

I swear my mood swings like a Cirque du Soleil freak performing on a crack and caffine binge.

Yesterday was a low day for me. It really sucked. My "job" is sucking the life out of me, and the oodles of money it pays does not compensate for it. It's horrible, and a struggle to get out of bed knowing I have to go back there. Corporate hell meets the boredom of a prison term.

I have decided that I need to quit. There's other stuff out there, and I need to believe that I can find something else fairly quickly. The problem is that causes stress at home because of money issues, but I have to figure out which is worse... having your soul sucked out through your nose or worrying about money. Seeing as how it was money that got me in this shithole in the first place, I think it might be easy to figure out that one.

I have a pretty good idea for a volleyball site I want to do, even a marketing plan. I have a site I need to develop in two stages for a client. The pay isn't huge but it should be easy and it'll extend my reusable code base in ways that make it easy to do other stuff. Microsoft DevDays is two weeks from today (I get in free), when I'll get my hands on Whidbey, the next version of ASP.NET, so I can begin to plan out the next version of the forums and, in the process, establish myself in the Microsoft community.

And the 1993 mix on the iPod is rocking me out right now. Kick ass.

Gotta get back to the screenplay...
