DAY 5 - JUNE 8, 2009
Got to head up to FCCJ today, which is why I didn't get all of my iteniary done today. But I found out that, apparently, to answer the questions I want to answer, I still have to fill out the application form, take some college placement test, go through orientation, and THEN I can ask questions. The guy there said it'd take two-three weeks. You know what? F*** that noise. I'm going to do this my way. It'll be particularly darkworker-ish, but I don't care about bureaucracy right now. I want ANSWERS before I commit, okay? Thanks.
I also got called this morning and found out about the driving classes. Good news-they take place before FCCJ's fall quarter. Bad news-costs 135 bucks. It's not like I can't pay it-I have the money from part-time freelancing work-but I'm irritated about giving it up when I wanted to save it. Eh. It's an investment. If I learn now, so many more opportunities open up. And who knows when I have the chance again? It's an investment, and I'll take it.
Couldn't find much freelance work today, so I decided to work on a guest post strategy to draw attention to me and my services. It's marketing, basically, so it should help my efforts. Though this is still part-time overall. I've got to remember that.
Tomorrow I'm going to make some proactive calls towards college and driving, and I'll do what I didn't get to do today, which is mostly setting up a contact form, an invoice template, and finding out about tax laws so my part-time efforts don't bite me in the ass.
(On the plus side, the trip to the college did get me some great material for my notebook, so it wasn't all bad.)
