It's been awhile since I updated this blog, as I've been busy getting my priorities straight and settling in to my new pad in Madison. I have a few random thoughts to post here, just to clear my mind.
-I'm taking a break from face-to-face selling of anything. I've had nightmare experiences at the swap meet (see my previous posts), and I just tried selling a motorcycle on craigslist, something I've done many times in the past. This time, everybody was a tire kicker, and when someone finally bought it, it broke immediately and they demanded their money back. So, I'm done. At least for now.
-Job hunting in Madison is almost a chore, but still easier than the more rural areas of Wisconsin. After a short stint at Milio's as a delivery driver, I was hired over at Burrito Drive, again as a delivery driver. Milio's was a soul-sucking, corporate machine designed simply to crank out sandwiches at an acceptable rate. The quality wasn't great, and the GM was kind of a single-minded jerk. I feel like I made the right decision.
-I'm facing some strange ideological questions as of late. When I start a new job, I get the same line of questioning from everyone; where are you from, why did you move here, etc. I'm finding it harder and harder to explain why I moved to Madison, and why I want to be a delivery driver. Now that you're here and you have a job, what now? It's a question I had not really considered, ever. So, I guess it's decision time.
