I am desperate to like whiskey because I have a (probably) false sense that whiskey-drinkers never take shit from anyone. I am barely able to choke the stuff down.

I love my hometown. So much. I like living here and I like my friends here, and overall it's a really f*cking great city. One problem, though: I simply do not feel artistically fulfilled here. This is what lies at the root of my homesickness -- loving home and always wanting to be there and … Continue reading The Problem with Home
To Whom It May Concern, I did not really know how to address this letter considering I was given absolutely no indication of who would be reading these applications at your company. All the websites I've looked at tell me to find the name of the person who hires people, but if you didn't provide … Continue reading An Honest Cover Letter

So you might be thinking that I love everything I read, which is not always the case. But please note that the opinions expressed in this post are fully my … Continue reading READY PLAYER ONE by Ernest Cline | Review
