    • Generation Jobless

      So it's been 10 months since I've lost my job, over which time I've sent out over 100 resumes to jobs in my field and some not so much in my field and all I got from those 100 resumes was 3 call backs and 1 interview. Two of the call backs were simply to thank me for applying and to inform me that I was overqualified. Overqualified, a compound word that is quickly becoming the bane of my existence. Now I know that I'm not alone in this so I don't mean to make it sound like I'm struggling and everyone else is doing fine, in fact I just read that 1 in 8 post secondary graduates don't get a job and an even higher percentage don't get a job in their field. So I graduated from college in 2009 with a diploma in Architectural Technology, over the past few years I've bounced around from one place to the next 3 of those jobs I was laid off do to shortage of work. Do too all the moving around it has made my resume look very odd, and a friend I used to work with told me once that when employer sees that you've worked at 3 different place in 3 years you're thought to be a risky hire. So the place where I'm sitting right now doesn't look very pretty, I'm too overqualified for simple jobs and I'm too much of a risk for any employer in my field to hire me. I would say I'm just about fucked!! If I could give any advice to current post secondary students or the recently graduated, and I in know want to upset any graduates or current students but my advice would be watch where you're going because that first step you take into your career could lead you down a path that 5 years from now you'll wish you'd never taken in the first place. Also you have to use whatever skills you have in this new world we live in because a degree doesn't always equal a job, remember the 1 in 8.

    • The Gym

      I've come to realize the worst part about going to the gym is putting up with the people that go to the gym!!

      On a side note: Is it possible to meet someone at the gym? Because there is definitely some very pretty ladies that go to my gym, but there doesn't seem to be any way to approach them without seeming creepy or pervy!!

      This wasn't on my list of movies I was going to see, but I sure am glad that I watched it. It's most certainly one the more unique movies in terms of story telling that I've seen. I really don't know what I could say about this movie other than the acting was great, the script was great and directing was great. A definite watch for me and I'll be adding it to my collection when it comes out on Blu-ray.

    • Iron Man 3

      I'll keep it short and sweet, if you liked the other 2 Iron Man movies as well as The Avengers than there is no reason why you shouldn't enjoy Iron Man 3. Only a few things bugged me, one of which is that I just felt it was about 15 - 20 minutes longer then it really needed to be but don't worry it's not like it drags on like a Michael Bay movie. And the other not that it's really a bad thing but I did feel the Shane Black's film making style showed through just a little not much for an Iron Man movie, but that's coming from a huge Shane Black fan so other people may not even notice. With all that said I really enjoyed it, so if you haven't seen it already......don't be stupid just go see it!!!

    • It Was A Joke!!

      Either we have to completely do away with sarcasm on the internet or people have to stop taking things so fucking literally, and if you can't take a joke then get the fuck off the internet!!

      Also on a unrelated note, is wrong to give someone advice when they've clearly asked for it? Because I keep getting snapped at when I try to help someone out after they've asked for help. Fucking people these days!!!
