Entry #7

Times Were Hard...And They Still Are. F*** The Economy!

Posted August 15, 2011, 10:05pm by Dave Brown

 

The year was 2009 and I had all the hopes and dreams in the world. Armed with a fresh college degree, I thought I had the world at my fingertips. On the horizon was a big house, five cars and living large. Although I felt I was ready to start big, the economy had other plans in mind.

Flash forward to the far off year of 2010. Two painted houses and numerous small-time renovations later, I found myself inside my cousin's house (Aaron's house) doing his dirty work...literally (I won't explain how I was paid until later). Now, in tough times, many could turn to certain actives that pay lucratively. Aaron explained to me that he had proposition which paid well and I accepted with no details.

Once I arrived, I was a little leery once he explained the details considering I would have to get my hands a little dirty. But still, times were hard. I had no job and was strapped for cash so the opportunity could not be passed up.

Four hours later, the job was completed. I wasn't happy with what I had to do, but I got paid and that was all that mattered.

Now, it's 2011 and I have a decent paying job. Was I happy with what I did? No. Would I still update a website, clean a kitchen and two bathrooms for $100, a dozen Bud Lites and a bucket of Jewel fried chicken? Hell yeah.
