Post I'm Broke
I apologize for my bad english here, but you'll see the point.

Yeah.. My ex-boss decided not to hire me again without letting me know, at least a few days before, that I won't be back the following week. It's like thursday when he told me. Saturday was my last day. It's been a month now since this tragic event, but I work for almost 7 years now and i got enough money to live, at least for a few months. That's of course annoying not to work anymore, but I still can pay my rent. But..

Yeah But. My f*cking car went down.. I had to repare it which cost me a lot of money (ouch!) and it happened right when I had to pay for the car insurance (big ouch!)... And some of you maybe remember that a few weeks bad I got a pretty bad injury with my eyes which still costs me money and I also had to buy new glasses (big ouch gain!) and then go to hospital for exams (ayaaaaaaa!)

And it goes on and on,I had to pay for a lot of stuff. I spent more money this month than the whole year before. And now I'm broke. I don't have anything left... I have to move out from my place this week and go back to my father's house to live there...

Sorry to hear that John. It isn't uncommon to have bad periods, especially with the way the economy is, but i'm sure you'll get things back on track soon. I hope you get a new job sorted!

Aw, man that sucks! :( I too hope you'll get a new job soon (hopefully as a photographer ;-)) so you can get a new place and pay your rent.

That's awful, man. I wish you good luck finding a new job!

I'm curious, though. Were you on a contract base? How's France's labour law?

I'm moving tomorrow morning from my flat.. Thanks for your support guys, I know it's going to be better pretty quick but I have to say I did'nt see that coming!
The good point is that I now have time for my projects, including my new feature film. I hope I'll make a lot of shooting this summer.

I really hate that for you, man. Hopefully you'll get your monetary situation worked out soon, and with your experience I'm sure you'll have no problem finding another job before too long. Hang in there and keep that chin up!

Thanks again guys! I got in touch with a French producer yesterday who's looking for a camera operator and/or an editor for a few music videos he'll shoot in July.. I'm on the top of his list!

Good luck John. I don't like seeing anyone in a bad financial situation. I hope you get the music video gig. That'll be a good start to get you back on your feet.
