The one question I kept asking myself after walking out of of the movie theater was, “Would I have enjoyed this film more if I hadn’t read the book?” As an adaptation, it was okay. It was like a Cliff Notes version of Suzanne Collins’ book. You got the basic idea but none of the nuance. The problem is the nuance is where a majority of the story lies.
It has been quite a season for the New York Knicks.
It’s been over a month since I lost my job. It’s funny. I wondered how long it would take me to go from “hopeful that I will find a great opportunity” to “desperate for anything.” The answer is: about a month.
Every weekday afternoon, I load up all the job search sites on my browser. I open new tabs for every job I’m interested or think I am relatively qualified for. Then, after I read through the qualifications, I apply to the ones I think my skills and interest match up best with. I’ve applied to over 30 jobs so far. Those 30 or so resumes have resulted in three in-person interviews and one phone interview. That’s a pretty shitty average. If I was a baseball player, I’d be on the bench or out of the league altogether which, I guess, is how I feel.
