I move off this contract position on Friday. Initially, I was a little trepidatious because I had nothing lined up for next week. I figured I’d have to spend every evening this week lining up work for next week. Then my agency said with another contract position with the same company. (“Contract” being a euphemism for “temp”) The agency called yesterday with the details and it sucks big, terrible wang. I wrote on my to-do list yesterday: “make escape plan.” It sounds like one of those jobs where I won’t have a second to check email or screw around.

The good thing is that the job is “ongoing” meaning no end in sight. That’s good because I’ll work at lining up enough freelance work to take care of me and then beg off the job.
