Did you guys know that more people are lifted out of poverty through income assistance than if we raised minimum wage, and that it's cheaper for us to just give money to poor people than to fix the wage stratification we've created?
I'm thinking about things like this as I look for a job, considering the worst that could happen and the best.
The best is that I apply to a job, the interview goes well, I get hired, I get paid enough to be self-sufficient, and I love what I do.
The worst is that I never get hired and I live in my mom's house until she kicks me out and end up turning tricks on a corner so I can get food.
Actually I'm not sure what I'd do if I became homeless.
Anyway, I feel lazy even though I have made some minimal progress in some areas, such as sending some not-so-stellar resumes in to companies (it's still a resume), putting together a medical school application (man does my personal statement suck, but at least I have a rough draft written), and going to the gym yesterday.
I've also been struggling with a bit of insomnia, which may be partly caused by the fact that I don't go outside a whole lot and the light in my room is pretty bright, so maybe my body just thinks that being awake until 5 am isn't abnormal.
Not much else to say. Still have photos from my trip that I could share.
I would love to know if you guys are interested in buying prints or if there's anything I could do to make my photography hobby into a source of income, or if you know an online company or company local to Indianapolis that might be interested in them, I'll certainly check it out.
Also if you know anyone who's hiring biochemists for more than minimum wage.
