Why did I decide to go?
Tag Archive for The Unknown
If you’re an American who has never bought anything from Amazon.com, you’re either a rural freegan who lives off berries in the woods, or you’re a technological recluse who doesn’t own a modem or a credit card.
Because there’s no way any English-speaking person could resist their ridiculous prices. And that’s why I find Matthew Yglesia’s recent Slate article to be particularly interesting.
I was thinking, heh, maybe my friends have just gotten lazy. But no, it’s Facebook itself that’s messed up, potentially on purpose.
And the mask I use barely covers up all the day-to-day craziness.
For the past few years, a core part of that craziness has been my job (or lack thereof). But I got a new one. I’m going to be doing communications for these fine people. All jobs come with challenges, but in my opinion, job enjoyment largely depends on the ratio of necessary challenges to unnecessary challenges. I’m hoping the new job will have fewer unnecessary challenges than my current one.
And that is all I will ever say about my job. Because this blog isn’t about my job. This blog is about the rest of my chaotic life.
