any moral support?

As of now, I have no job. My boss had to shut down the store. I'm pissed because it was the first job I actually loved going to work for him and he treated me as an equal and not just a "grunt". I haven't lost a friend, but it is near imossible for us to spend time with each other because we live too far away from each other and gas costs too frickin' much. I'm feeling kinda elmo now. I need a job to help pay for college, but I feel like no other job can replace the one I lost. But if there is one level I will not stoop to, it's being a fry cook at Micky D's!

    Sorry to hear about your situation. For what it's worth, when work is slow for me I practice a lot, at least that keeps my spirits up while I'm broke and eating beans and rice... I remember reading that Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh worked at Macy's Department store between gigs.

      Thanks, guys! I probably won't be getting a job anytime soon, but thanks for helping me keep up the spirit!

    Re: any moral support? 2 years later?

    I'm new to SQ today. I see this is almost 2 years old. You should be 19 now (right?) So, how's things in TX? I hope something wonderful has happened since your last post!
