Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

A coffeeshop would have hired me but I balked at the commitment of working variable hours for $7.25 an hour, plus tips, for at least a year.

I really feel run-down from pavement pounding. I wish I didn't have to worry about money.
