Cobra wants you! I'm looking for some ruthless Vipers to fill the ranks. Joes need not apply.

I eventually found another job at a smaller company, I was used and abused there, even worse. Bossed around constantly, told I was ignorant and told on Fridays that I was working on Saturday (ah, the joys of salaried positions). I had to physically move our location 2 seperate times (which is not easy when its a WAREHOUSE). We bought a smaller company and I was immediately replaced with one of their people...who worked cheaper. This time it was only 3 years.
That was my 20's in a nutshell for you! Nothing to show for it in my 30's. I have been out of "real" work for 2 years now. Nothing in sight at all.
I finally went with my boyhood dream to make comic books! I did a lot of looking into everything, went to the county building to make my own official business and I now self publish my own comics. I also do commissions, but I'm in a dry spell with that lately, but hopefully that will pick up soon. I don't make the money I used to, but I am far happier now. I work from home when I want (days or nights) and do something I really enjoy.
I think thats a key to everything in this economy. I accepted that I won't make the money that I used to. It just won't happen. BUT...I can at least be happier now than I used to be. Its scary, certainly, but I have a feeling of working towards something. No one is able to take away my characters, stories or issues...no one can lay me off/fire me/replace me. Life is hard right now, but I honestly dont feel that it will always be.
Screw all these big vampire companies! What have they ever done for me? Nothing.
