Where have all the flowers gone... and why did they have to take all my money?

My unemployment has officially run dry.

This means no more safety net, no more Netflix, no more Hulu Plus, and no more internet (except through the phone.)

This isn't a tale of woe is me.

I prepaid my rent for a couple of months and have some money trickling in from a couple freelance jobs that I've managed to find.

This is the tale of how I entertain myself with all that yummy WIFI gone from my apartment. (NOTE: All my utilities are covered by the rent.)


I guess this why I will never understand the person that says, "Oh, if I were to ever win the lottery I'd have to keep my job or else I would go crazy."

Maybe it helps when you are already there.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
