I made the decision recently to leave my job, so in a few months I will be free to pursue other opportunities.
I don’t know what I’m going to do yet, which is scary as hell, but I know that for now I am done with non-profit, direct service work. After 10 years I am thoroughly burned out.
I thought about being a sports announcer, but after listening to the Outer Limits crew on KBGA call the grid iron showdown between the WGM Rough Riders and the hapless Missoula City Council, I realized I can’t match their skill set.
Seriously though, if you haven’t listened to what the Outer Limits is doing with their brilliant radio theatrical production, taking municipal politics and distilling it into a hilariously performed football analogy, you are missing out. I drove around for nearly two hours unnecessarily just to listen. I am also humbled that some of my content regarding Tax Increment Financing is getting picked up and performed as well. Keep it up guys!
Anyways, back to me. Since I’ll be out of the non-profit sector I’ll be morally freed up to make some money, if I can just find the right thing. Morals can really get in the way of making money, so I’m turning my back on all of my previous morally righteous stances against rampant growth and gentrification.
To highlight this change I’m sharing pictures of a new condo project that I plan on building in Missoula this summer, called BRICK OF MIND. At BRICK OF MIND the walls are sound proof, which comes in handy when the police are shooting drug dealers on the streets. As you can see in the artist rendering, a heavily armed private security person is strategically positioned by the ATM because at BRICK OF MIND we know what’s important.
While all the doom and gloom naysayers fill City Council chambers tonight hoping to stop the 4th street Condo tower on the verge of being blessed by our elected gentrifiers, I plan on attending with a mock build-up of BRICK OF MIND to ask for approximately 2.3 million in TIF money to obtain all locally sourced materials for my project where I’m happy to announce exactly .75 of the units will be affordable.
The future I see in Missoula will be bright, but only if I get financial assistance to see my vision through to completion.
Help me help you, Missoula. Donate to my Condo project today!
Did I mention it will be mixed use?
