My faith in God as has been reaffirmed
    #4483340 - 08/02/05 12:44 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I came to Cali to become a photographer. I've been struggling for almost 2 years now. I moved to cali with every last penny I had. I've had financial and emotional highs and low since I've been here. I expected as much when I grabbed life by the balls and moved out here, risking my entire future.

Almost two years later.... and I'm struggling again.

Yesterday I go to Best Buy and find the best deal ever on a Canon Digital Rebel EOS XT for 1000 bucks. The exact camera I've been drooling over for months to finally get off my ass and get my career started. After a vacation and lots of bills I caught up on... I still have the money for it, but I figure it'll cost me about 1200-1300 bucks for the camera and accessories. My bank account will be hurting after that. So for the 2340782342306th time since moving to Cali, I decide to put off my true passion again... juuuUUust for a little bit longer... Right (rolls his eyes).


i get home from the bar tonight a bit tipsy, overworked, tired, and on the verge of complacency, just a week or two from accepting a 9-5 fate which I never really wanted...

But... no matter how gung ho you are in your quest for your dreams, life has a way of beating you into submission sometimes, you know?

I look at my puter. and my parents leave a letter from the U.S. govt on my keyboard.

I'm thinking "fuck... I fucked up my taxes... i owe the gov't like 2390842390842 bucks". I'll be living with my parents again for the rest of my life now.

i open up the envelope


and i *did* fuck up on my taxes




there's a check from the u.s. treasury for approximately $1,320

Just enough for the camera and a little extra to donate to charty (the first thing I notice on the shroomery right after I login after seeing this check).

Enough said. I shall accept my fate... and continue with my plight.

Thats awesome my friend. Maybe when you are a photographer living off millions of dollars or have a satisfying recollection of life you know who to thank.
:thumbup:

I'm religious for a reason too. :wink:

I love eating Ramen uncooked. Think my mother gave me that habit long ago. I haven't ate Ramen in a year or so though heh. It isn't the healthiest stuff.
