I have applied for two jobs this week, neither of which are what I graduated from college to do. In one I might be running long hours, little pay, but having lots of fun working in a fun environment. The other will pay more money, require me to drive but get paid per mileage, and it seems more responsibility rides on it.

Anyhow, the lesser paying job had me complete a personality test online, to be honest in my answers. I have also learned that one cannot afford to lie, but cannot fully tell the truth either; there must be a happy medium where one can be truthful, trustworthy and covering his tail at the same time. But I'm not sure how to do this. And I know better than to lie; been around too many liars, some being very good at it. Perhaps this is why when someone asks me "How was your day?" I respond with "It was good," and turn it around by asking "How was yours?" rather than saying something like out of a William Faulkner novel; which reads extremely detailed, run-on sentence after run-on sentence, endless paragraphs, endless detail, going on and on rambling, which I would blame on either the that fact that he was an alcoholic or that it was a style of writing that he chose, maybe both, while at the same time painting a picture mentally of what is happening in the scene.

You know something is wrong with the economy when all the creative jobs are few and therefore extremely competitive, when the employers for creative jobs want everything but will pay the winner nothing, and when obsolescence in software is the name of the game, but the people in charge don't care so long as it makes them richer, and when the people who could make it easier for students and unemployed to get a good job decide to tap dance around the situation rather than face it head on.

   The desktop pc in my house came with Windows XP, and we had it since 2003. It has only been this week that we were told by a computer guy that Microsoft cut off the security updates for XP, making them more vulnerable to viruses and hackers and malware than it was already. Therefore, now the files are transferred and it now has Windows 7; and it's way faster than it was.

In the same way, my own macbook pro came with OSX Snow Leopard: I learned that I have been on here the past year without security updates. Mavericks is the latest upgrade operating system, but has a risk of making everything slow, may or may not be compatible with my Wacom Intuos4, though I found a driver for it, and worst of all I will lose CS5, forcing me to subscribe to Creative Cloud which may or may not work with wacom intuos4. The answer to all this is a job, but what I'm looking for isn't there.

I'm at a place in time where internet is scarce while at home, and time is limited, so I'll make this quick.

Strange things always seem to happen on a full moon, especially with traffic. Even stranger things happen with the super moon. Over the weekend I found out that Johnson Group is hiring for a graphic design position, and they never have that position open, and apparently at the same night Robin Williams, overcome by depression, killed himself, and was found by his assistant Monday morning. The effects from the super moon could both be really terrible or they could have a bitter sweet ending, I'm not sure which yet.

I'm in process of drawing a comic to send off to a syndicate, but it's going really slow. I have decided to go the traditional rout with tracing paper, 0.5 mechanical pencil, markers, and mix media paper. So far I have roughly 11 out of 20 comic strips, either finished of ready to be scanned and tweaked in Photoshop and Indesign.
I find that games on facebook and tv on hulu have been dragging me down. Enjoying the finished product  of others keeps me from finishing mine.
The other reason it's slow going is that my parents don't seem to have much faith in syndication; they're having me do other work around the house until I can find a real job. Syndication is on the same level of competition as graphic design, might as well wear an eye patch and say "arrr," but if I can pull this off I'll be in newspapers; it's like Jo, Joe, and Joey and Media Circus were the training and now is the time to do this; but it may take 'til October.
