Hinderance more than Help

So, Barnes and Noble, not so great. I did, however, get an internship with the Onion. But that hasn't started yet. Anyways, Barnes and Noble is pretty terrible. Instead of being a place where I can do my work and go home, it has become a temple of shittyness. Crappy training and douchey co-workers, on top of a 40 minute drive. Also, the shifts I'm scheduled for are smack in the middle of everything. No time to do anything creatively all the way through. If I start, I cannot finish. When I get home, no energy to do anything. Not what I wanted from a job I don't actually want.

The worst part of it is that I have a great song idea that I would love to hash out. It is starting to bug me. For some reason, I've been gravitating towards "hymn-like" progressions and attempting to make them modern. Kind of weird, but it seems to be working pretty decently.

Also debating whether or not I want to contact this singer/songwriter dude I found on craigslist looking for collaborators. He also has a myspace and sounds pretty legitimate. But, the dude sounds a bit too folky for my taste, Dylan-esque. On the other hand, it could be a creative outlet and an opportunity to play live. He claims to play a few times a week, so I'm thinking about it.

To sum it up, I'm still job hunting. I need a job where I either enjoy it, or can leave it, go home and resume my creativity. Let us hope for more good things to come.
