That which sucks the soul

Nothing brings you crashing back to reality like the updating of one’s resume or CV. This little ritual means that the dream dies a little more, at least for her it did. She did not want the jobs she was applying for and she never had. But food and movies cost money.

So every once in a while it got dusted off and sent off to the real world where real people and real problems existed. The only thing worse than applying for work was getting it. Nine to five leaves little time for practice. Nights are hard because they are filled with bitterness and disappointment.

Her document was sterile. It made no attempt at being interesting. It was just another thing she could not wait to throw away when the big screen came calling.
