Any questions?  

I am a North Carolina unemployed cover letter factory running on double IPA's, the Internet and the democratic process. This is dedicated to my constantly evolving interests and various daily occurrences. In short, I do what I want.

    What I’ve Read

    The Bone Clocks
    This book was fucking weird. It’s by the same guy who wrote Cloud Atlas and is basically the same weird science fiction/fantasy genre. Basically it follows the life of Holly Sykes by way of 4 or 5 different characters with a little bit of psychic weird shit in between.  If you’re looking for something bizarre, different and deep that will scare the shit out of you when it comes to the next 30+ years and our planet with the rate of energy consumption, get this. 4.5/5 stars.

    The Goldfinch
    Currently about half-way through this. I have mixed feelings. There is no doubt that it’s beautifully written and fairly fast-paced, but it’s not all that different from your typical coming-of-age, sensitive-kid-with-a-troubled-past story. Also, it’s long- 750ish pages. It’s like if Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (which is my favorite book of all time, no question) was written when Oskar was 14 instead of 9 or whatever. 4/5 stars so far.

    A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
    Another pretty depressing book about post-war Ukraine which is already pretty dark and depressing. This book was hard to get through. It’s also pretty long, and it has a lot of Russian/Ukranian names that are difficult to keep track of if you’re not reading it in one sitting. There were parts that really drew me in and got me invested, and other parts where I was counting pages. Read this if you have a long trip or if you’re stuck in bed for a few days. 3.5/5 stars.

    Never Let Me Go
    I don’t know what I was expecting with this. I didn’t read it in high school like most people I’ve talked to about it, and I feel like I would’ve enjoyed it more if I had. Like I needed a naggy high school teacher to wring every ounce of meaning from it for me in the form of class discussion or something. It read like a high school novel. Fast, but bland. 3.5/5 stars.

    Guys, I’m applying to jobs and the series finale of Gilmore girls is on where Luke throws Rory the going away party because she got a job and Lorelei is so bummed because Rory’s leaving, and I cannot hold it together.

    And then they pick it back up and the first episode ever comes on and this is way too many feelings before lunchtime.

    Sometimes I open Facebook and it makes me sad and ragey. Other times I open Facebook to find gems like this.

    The great job search

    0 for 5 y’all. I knew the job hunt would suck, but I’m 3 weeks in and this is the fucking worst.

    "You were awesome! I have no feedback. But we’ve offered the position to another candidate. I’m sure you’ll have no problem getting an offer somewhere else. Best of luck!"

    Fuck you.

    I’m a web developer. Why is this so hard. My ego doesn’t exist anymore.
