I hate feeling ordinary. Right

I hate feeling ordinary.

Right now I feel like the most ordinary, boring underachiever the world has ever seen. It's pathetic. I want to do something amazing. But I don't know what it is or how to get there. I wonder how I could get my own TV show, although that really isn't all that "amazing" per se.

I have started moving forward with my potential "moving to a strange new place" plan, which is good. I've posted my resume all over the damn Internet, and I've been looking daily for jobs in Portland, Boston, and Chicago (I applied for two in Boston last week). But I don't want some dumb ass office job, and finding something else usually involves having contacts in those towns. So I need to do the dreaded networking.

I've started trying to get some freelance copywriting work on the side as well, which is potentially good. I've also looked into quitting my job and going to volunteer for non-profits in Europe and Africa. Seriously. The only thing that stops me is worrying that I won't be able to get Tampax in these faraway locations.
