what kind of photography are you doing? I think you should keep focusing on that. Can you try to get a different part time job?

Sorry ETP.  It sounds like a really rough time!

Part of this sounds situational, ie little control over your work life and little interest in working in the restaurant.  Also you just had a big event and now it’s back to life’s reality.

I’ve often found that in big transition time, I benefit from talking to a professional to feel better.  Often times that’s all it takes (well, that and some good exercise!)

Feel better.  I’m giving you a hive hug!

Im so sorry to hear about your bad day (I know how youre feeling for different reasons!).  I used to work in a restaurant and they would pull that stuff all the time.  And it totally stinks you get your schedule ONE DAY before the week starts!  I hate when managers do that!  At least you are able to switch and not get written up.  Id just make the best of it (hopefully you make more money at night) and avoid your manager if you can.  Is there another restaurant you can apply to?  I agree with Jacqi, try and focus on your photography since that is what makes you happy. I hope you feel better!

Wow, I’m really sorry.  I worked part time in a restaurant for years, it’s a rough environment.  My sister’s going through the same thing, on the verge of quitting.  I hope this is just a bump and it sucks when they happen. 

Is there a hope of another part time job while the photography gets started up?  Don’t worry about venting, it’s good for the soul.

O man, just try to hang in there, hopefully your manager had to deal with something even worse than you flipping out and maybe she’s forgotten all about it by now. Just go in with the best attitude you can muster, maybe even score some extra tip money!

I live near you bumblers too! Sort of. A little west of you, ETP. You’re right, this is a crappy time of year. It’s already chilly and ugly because the leaves are gone, and no snow to at least fool us into believing winter is a whimsical, magical time of year. ::cough cough::

Hang in there, ETP! Do you have a blog or anything of your work? I’d love to see your photos of pets.

Ohh that sucks, to be alone in a new place.  I’ve heard there’s a really good concert venue out there – Penn’s Peak maybe?

I’m out in the State college area and me and my hubs have had a hard time making new friends here.  Wasn’t easy to move and plan a wedding and try to get to know people. 

How far is the poconos from NJ or NYC?  Is there any editor jobs you could look for and only travel a few days a week?

I feel you. My degree (English) is TOTALLY useless, so I’m working at a bookstore until I can a) find a better job or b) go back to school. I’ve been really down about it recently but it’s got to start looking up soon… right? RIGHT?!

Sorry to hear 🙁  I’ve been afeeling a bit down as of late too, for no real reason at all (well, ok, there are a few, but they just don’t seem to add up).  It’s god to know that we can come on a site like this where women can lend their support!  I hope things get better for you, and don’t give up on your passion for photography!
