I am a whore

This is a basic fact – to solve your problems, you first have to acknowledge them. To right any wrongs, to correct any flaws, one must first recognise the existence of said blemishes.

I for one have come to the central conclusion that I am nothing but a poor, miserable Zimnbabwean whore.

See, one thing about life is that most of us end up doing what we have to do to survive, instead of surviving how we want to. We make compromises along the way, we discard what we thought to be unshakable principles and basically sell ourselves out.

I believe that instead of doing anything to get paid, it’s better to do something I would pay to do. No more getting up in the morning, dreading the day, mourning the loss of freedom and individuality almost all our current jobs demand.

It’s time to take back the day, motherfuckers, and start living like we want to, not how our employment contracts demand.

From now on I am going to create – every chance I get. I am gonna play that bass guitar til my fingers burn. I am gonna write immense bullshit until my keyboard bleeds. I am going to sketch, I’m gonna cook epic feasts, I’m gonna do all the things I know I can, but almost never do because I’m too tired from fucking working.

Yes, from now on, my job will be something I do, not who I am. And my job will end at five, and the rest of the time I will be me.

Crazy, conflicted, creative, completely fucked up me. I will be relaxed, I will be stress-free and most of all, I will be happy.

I will never be a colony again.

  1. Hi Joe, what does this mean? Are you going freelance? Are you now a hobo? Are you tending towards hobo-ville? Did you secretly win the lottery and you’re now just pretending to have a life-affirming epiphany while writhing around in a giant vat of hundred dollar bills? (ew)

    I do quite like the idea of never again being a colony. In my head, where it matters. With my body, who knows what hard times one might fall on – touch wood.

  2. Lol no, there haven’t been any major changes, not for the better anyway. But now, I’m taking care of myself first. Lifes too short to be unhappy.
