Huh? What’s happening? Oh time to dust off this feature and post something new? Alright, let me put some pants on.
(Kidding, I’m totally not wearing pants right now.)
I wrote a few of these to keep fans updated on the crazy things in my life. Those things that don’t really fit into other posts during the week. But then it fell by the wayside. Recently on an episode of the UnderScoopFire podcast host Corey Chapman mentioned how much he loves Fridays because of two guaranteed blog posts. Will’s West Week Ever and USF’s own Can We Talk? I felt jealous. I want that kind of anticipation for my own site. So after some contemplation I decided to try to write a Well column for every Friday.
Lets see how well I do.
By the way if you want to read those other columns head over to the links below:
Well… I’ve started to haggle.
When people ask “what do you want to do with your life?” I have two answers. Actually three. The first being I’m 36 why in the hell have I not figured this out yet? The second and third though are to be paid to either write or run my own book and pop culture shop. As you know because you’re reading this, I write constantly. So that part is on the cusp of being a great income generator. The other is actually building up nicely during this trying time in our lives. EBay pictures are being taken, posts are uploading, and most items have sold very fast on Craigslist. However as things go out I need to bring more in. Much to the frustration of my wife. Also frustrating her is my new love of related TV shows. Storage Wars, Thrift Hunters and my current Netflix binge, Salvage Hunters. I’m a small fish but I try to take the lessons of these shows and apply them to my own buying. Three dollars each? How about both for five? Really what does a dollar matter? But I felt like I accomplished something.
Well… Monster is a joke.
I have my resume out there on all the sites. No stone unturned in this job search. But I have never received more spam and bullshit calls then I did after posting my resume on Monster. “We’re interested in you! You can make so much money with our company. And for just one training class and a $35 fee we’ll tell you how.” No thank you. I don’t pay you, you pay me. That’s how capitalism works dammit!
Well… Here’s what I’ve absorbed.
Its this week in pop culture! We have internet, Netflix, Hulu, a library, a bookstore 20 minutes away, plus our own massive collections. There’s always something to enjoy. This week’s enjoyment (and thus things that can be talked about in the comments) included:
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Away We Go
Pretty Little Liars season 4
SummerSlam and the next night’s Raw
Parallel Man #1.
Go ahead and start a conversation below. Ask questions for the next Well. And if anyone wants to make me a logo I’d be thrilled.
