Everything is awesome

Is the title of the very catchy, yet slightly annoying, song in The Lego Movie, which is excellent and you should all go see.

Aside from that everything has been quite awesome this week because

  • the Olympics are underway
  • the job search is coming to some fruition
  • my parking karma is on point

As far at the Olympics go, some of my favorite moments so far have been:

Iouri (Ipod) podlatchikov win gold in the men’s half-pipe.

Though I was sad that Shaun White did not have the best day, I was impressed by his gracious acceptance of 4th place, and the fact that he went over and congratulated the guys that medaled.

I am happy anytime I see someone perform at their best and experience what I am sure is a feeling of pure elation at achieving a life-long goal. I think many people dream of going to the Olympics (I definitely did) and seeing people realize those dreams and have the run or routine of their life when it counts is very awe-inspiring.

On the job front-

The search is going well, I had another interview today, I attended BU’s career fair and I made some more quality contacts.

Fingers crossed, I will have another job soon. If not, then I’ll keep trucking.

Parking karma is just exciting because having given up my parking space to save some money, I am always grateful when I easily find a space on the street.

Basically when you find a parking space in Boston it feels like this:

Also, in a very thoughtful gesture, my dad gave me a Starbucks gift-card so that I could sit and focus on applying for jobs. So that was very nice and unexpected and I’ve been filling my belly with delicious drinks all week.

So, all in all, everything is awesome, and seriously go see the Lego Movie (in 3D, which I normally hate) because it is so funny and cute, and definitely made for adults.
