I have no bookings on the schedule and I’m in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I’ve got 200 bucks for gas to get somewhere if I do get booked. Other than that, I spent the last of my money at Leatha’s BBQ. I keep saying that I’m better with my money than it seems. Obviously I’m lying to myself.
This isn’t my worst case scenario because I do have money to get to another show if I can book one, but it’s close. Being broke and having nothing coming up, being in one place for long makes me anxious. As long as I’m driving to another job, I feel like I’m moving forward. Sitting here in my car it’s unclear if I’m a wrestler without a gig or a homeless person. The line is thin.
There are only so many calls you can make looking for work. And there are even less free things to do in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. And there’s only so much walking around you can do. I found out that there’s a band that wrote a song about me. It’s terrible. I spent most of the day looking at medical websites and trying to decide if I’m horrible for not trying to do more with healing magic. Turns out without a medical degree, or a HS education at least, reading those sites is pretty much useless. I came to no conclusions.
As much as I fear being trapped with no money and nothing upcoming, I’ve done nothing to prepare for when it happens. Can you do that though? Save money for the tough times? First you’d have to have some.
