My Life as a Starving Artist/Writer...

So can I go back and delete this post, where I thought that I would have money for food and stuff while I was looking for a job?

Sometimes optimism bites you in the ass.

I swear I am good at writing and would be a terrific employee. Somebody hire me please.

On Being Unemployed...Again

I don't have to tell you that being unemployed sucks. And now it seems that I have spent most of my post-collegiate life stuck in unemployment, or almost half of it anyway.
It has me feeling like a failure... because the person that was so good at school sucks at being employed.

Am I really just not good at anything? Or maybe the problem is that I have no passion for anything...

On Technology Addiction...

There's a great line in the book I'm reading:

"Claire wakes jonesing for data; she fumbles on the crowded bedside table for her BlackBerry, takes a digital hit. Fourteen emails, six tweets, five friend requests, three texts, and her calendar--life in a palm."

Isn't this so true. I know my phone is one of the first things I grab when I get up, or even before I get up. I check Facebook even before I throw off the covers. It's a little unhealthy.

The book is Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter by the way.
