out of touch

But I've been writing offline, so maybe something will find its way here in time.

I'm not working enough, but I'm getting by.. barely and somehow.  The last time I booked work it was with someone I found at the Art Model Place.  There is finally a website for the industry I work in.  Something to compile a directory of art models and network them directly with their various employers.  If this website had existed a couple years ago, I imagine I'd now be out of debt and in better state of mind... and thats just from being able to find steady work.  Guess I should have built it sooner, eh?  Right now its at 185 members.  Getting a slow start but I'm hoping it'll pick up soon.  Once it starts getting more populated, it has some lovely potential.  Slowing it down is time and budget.  I could make some major changes with a couple hundred dollars, and in a month my friend will become more available to help me with it, and possibly hire me as her assistant for various website work.  She's been teaching me a lot and I've taught myself a bit, too.

I hate the waiting game.  Hate it.  I waited three weeks to find out about a job.  It was a week between 1st and 2nd interview, and two weeks after that before I found out that it wasnt happening.  In that time, I couldn't book work because if I actually DID get a lucrative full-time job, I'd have to cancel nearly all of the bookings I had accepted and ruin some of the business contacts.  Waiting that long though at such a crucial time.. that was the window.  When everyone does their hiring for summer, and in many cases for fall as well.  Thats half the damn school year.  I got bookings from one school since then, and I doubt there are many more forthcoming.  I really gotta get on that, pronto.  Leave the site alone for a few days, find work for NOW.  arg.
