Would you think differently if this was your biological father?
thats the thing. if this was a biological parent, it seems like a no brainer I would have to miss this job. but ive never been in a situation like this. where do you draw the line? would he even want me to miss this job?
what makes it weird is that my job is to play guitar. now, im not just going out of town to play at some bar, make $50 and come home. this is a larger event where I will make close to the same amount i make in two full weeks of teaching. it could put my family in a bind to miss it.
also, this event has been on the calendar for over 6 months. it would put my other band mates in a bind as well if I had to miss it. and when you are an independent contractor, its hard to miss gigs because you dont have steady income. this one pays exceptionally well, and it is what will help me get through next month when I am not playing quite as much...
i know i sound selfish, and it seems like its all about money, but i currently just trying to weigh my options. im still trying to figure things out.
