NOTW: This one pains me to admit…

…and, I mean, it really does.

But before we get to that, please allow me to welcome you to my second installment of Notes on the Wall! (NOTW for those of you keeping track at home) How much longer will I be keeping track of these entries? For as long as it sounds cool to me!

I hope you all had a wonderful conclusion to the end of your week last week. Maybe, you even have even found a few things that motivate you, or are just straight up thankful for.

Today I am going to share with you something that I am both, very thankful to have and causes me to physically cringe at it’s very thought!

My delivery job.

Yep, I am honestly very blessed to have it.

Getting mixed signals yet?

I hate my job. Like. Hate it. I like really, really just think it’s plain icky. However, I am one of the most blessed people in the world because of it.

Stumped yet?

I am grateful for this job because, though it’s a crappy side job, it’s a side job that has allowed me to have a roof over my head and food to eat everyday. Truthfully, at the end of the day, if your side job is at least doing that for you, then it is a success.

Now, I am not going to give a speech about how you should always be ecstatic to walk through the doors of your particular crap hole every day. What I will tell you, though, is that you could be a lot worse off.

As of right now there are five percent of Americans who don’t get a job to complain about. Five percent who have much bigger problems then having to get up early for the morning shift. There a group of people, just like you and I, who aren’t sure where their next meal will come from or where they might sleep tonight.

It is also worthy of mention, that it’s because of this crappy side job that I get to do this. It’s what funds the electricity to use this computer and to purchase the needed equipment and software for this expanding project.

I won’t lie to you, I greatly look forward to the day that I get to throw my resignation in the general manager’s face, along with a pair of middle fingers. But right now, I am just glad I have a job to complain about.

So what are you guys, maybe even begrudgingly, thankful for? Or even something that maybe inspiring you this week? Please feel free to share in the comments or, if you are feeling adventurous, shoot me a message on twitter (@punkmusical) about it!

Have a fantastic week!

    I feel the same way about my job, everyday. But, I am thankful to have it as well because i get to know people of all types and be friends with amazing beings who I never knew/thought I’d be associated with. (I love the idea of those middle fingers! By the way)
    I will say that Im thankful to be where I’m at right now. I have a job, and you said it yourself, many don’t. I have a place to live, a car to drive where i need to, including school (which I’m also very fortunate to be in). I love and am thankful that I have people who love me and would support me in anything I do. I love that most people enjoy my company because I always felt as if noone ever noticed me. (maybe because I wasnt important enough? Idk) I now realize how many faces get filled with excitement when I greet them!
    Sorry this is going on forever..but to wrap it up, Im just thankful to be exactly where Im at right now. Of course there are days where I wish I had more, but I just tell myself that one day I will(with hard work) .
    I guess Im thankful for life itself!
    P.s. Im thankful I have this phone to comment on a blog with ! XD

      That’s so awesome Casyy!
      It seems so easy to get caught up in the crap of everything, we sometimes forget to just be happy that we have it to complain about!
      Thank you so much for sharing šŸ™‚
