Destiny - A New Beginning

"There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but when you get there, the view is always the same." - Bethanie Odd

I have felt it coming - The eventual and the inescapable - No matter what happened I was always going to be in this place.

What the fuck?

I went into the meeting with my big boss suppressing the urge to quit... I want to leave, I don't want this job any more - it is helping me in some ways yet hindering me in others - yet money is money and it will help me out in ways that I need it to. I've got this short film coming up which I need to pay for and my showreel is virtually complete - so I need to concentrate on getting it out.

Anyway, this afternoon I said my prayers and asked for help with my career. Not this stupid job. But my career - My aspirations to be a commercials director and a film director. Grandiose perhaps? But it is what I am working towards. What I am going to to.

This evening, in the meeting I was presented; not with the answers to my prayer, but the pre-cursor to them.

Afterwards I called my girlfriend,

"Do you want the good news or the bad news?" I asked.

"Don't tell me you quit!?" She exclaimed.

"I didn't have to."

Although it may not seem like it when you open your wallet next week, maybe this is just what your career needs.

Best of luck Doom.
