#HireAmyVolume: Unemployment, Day 12.

This will be quick as it’s Easter Sunday & too beautiful out to sit on my duff and blog. Actually, this blog post is an attempt to encourage you to get out and explore your neighbourhood!

#HireAmyVolume: Day 10 of Unemployment

I was let go on Friday, April 4th – following a Saturday through Wednesday work schedule – that puts me at… Day 10 of Unemployment! Sorry, it’s hard to keep track, so I’m thinking “out loud” here.

The truth: Yesterday, I was let go from my full time radio job. You often hear bands say “Yeah, we split due to Creative Differences” – and you think, “Yah right… Someone’s a horrible drug addict,” or “Someone slept with someone’s wife,” or “blah blah blah.”

If you know me, you’ll know just how true that is!

That being said, I am in need of work. Serious, full time, awesome, soul feeding work! Happy to bartend on the side – if you are in the know, have any leads or need an MC (or bartender). Don’t hesitate to contact me via:
