Hello All, So the balancing act between my day job and my band is becoming unbearable. My day job won't bend AT ALL to give my any more time off than my whopping 5 days per year. They won't even let me off without paying me, because we don't even have 10 people in the stupidass company. Also, with my limited education (a crap community college associates from '99), and transportation costs, I really can't find anything more workable with benefits. I'm thinking that I have two options: I can risk it, and go solely off of the band (without benefits), and I could for the next 2 1/2 months, or try to fit it a seasonal full/part-time position (without benefits). The plus side to risking no benefits, is that I'm in good general health, and just have to pay for periodontist visits a few times a year. The band will be going to TN, VA, NY, FL, and other big gigs over the next six months, and I don't know what the hell to do. This band has more of a chance getting signed and going pro than any other I've ever played with, and it's actually a business (1099's, paid by check every two weeks). I'm going crazy with these jerks at my day job, who could care less about me having a life outside of work, as I'm about the only one who does. I'm so sick of this ****, and yet I need to pay my bills, of course. Guys, ANY help and advice is appreciated. Thank you.
