It’s time I got back to the good life
It’s time I got back
It’s time I got back
And I don’t even know how I got of the track
I wanna go back
- “The Good Life” by Weezer
You would think that not having a job would lead to me shakin’ booty and making sweet love all the night, every night. However, my self-imposed budget and existence of a significant other banded together to prevent all that from happening.
What I have to do now is get back on the track to employment. Now that I don’t have to show up to my cube every morning, I’ve been able to focus all my energy on finding the right employment. I didn’t know the job search could be so tedious. While I was in school last year, I just relied on the
So I applied to all these jobs and I even got replies from some of them, and I realized that I didn’t even really have an urge to work for most of the companies where I applied. I was just submitting my resume to places that sounded cool (MTV Networks) and entry level crap that sounded like it would pay a decent amount for minimal work (Chipotle). I took a step back and really thought about what I wanted to with my life. I didn’t want to end up at another job like Business Analyst at Target, where I was about to go insane.
I had to take a step back and look at what interested me, and what it came down to was advertising and marketing. I know I’ll probably have to work for peanuts for a few years, but I don’t think I’ll mind. Ever since my uncle brought me with him to work at McCann Erickson
Anyhow, I ended up applying to some large agencies in
I just realized that I probably bored the hell out of a lot of you with the not so brief description of my thought process for my job search, so I’ll start talking about my random thoughts in the following paragraphs. Anyway, I guess the grand point I was trying to reach is that life is too short to stay in the wrong situations. The past four months that I worked just flew, and I was miserable for a good part of it. Let’s hope this advertising thing works out.
I was watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air a couple days ago and I had a revelation. The opening sequence where they roll the credits and Will Smith raps never changed in all the years (1990-1996 according to IMDb.com) it was on the air. The only things that changed were when they added Ross Bagley because he played Nicky and the name switch for the actresses that played Aunt Viv. Even when his bright, baggy clothes went out of style, they never re-shot the scene. I found this interesting.
Does anyone else think that Iron Chef America is inferior to the original Iron Chef? It’s so ridiculous. It’s just not as interesting when it’s not dubbed.
I think Bill Simmons needs to stop talking about
I love how Scoop Jackson incorporates his dialect into his writing.
Can you believe Hatty hooked up with a 37 year old mom that has a teenager? What a crazy guy.
Does anyone watch hockey now that it’s back? I catch some random highlights on SportsCenter, but it’s not the same anymore. They might as well just put on some Arena Football highlights.
I finished The OC: The Complete First Season last week, and I'm not ashamed to say that I loved it.
Since Bush Senior and Bill Clinton are so tight nowadays, I would love to see them make a run for the White House together. Bush Senior would have to run for President because Clinton demolished him and already used up his two terms.
It’s 2:30 in the morning, and I’m finally getting sleepy. I will leave you with this question: What the heck happened to my “I heart Soccer Moms” t-shirt? I was going to wear that to my sister’s soccer games, but now I can’t because it mysteriously disappeared about a year ago.
