Cady: Easter bread

HOT CROSS BUNS?!
I didn't mean it that way, but yes. With colorful eggs.

I just love hot cross buns.

My grandma used to make them.

With her bread spoon that she'd worn halfway down over 55 years of bread making.

i think the most favorably way in which to view vercingetorix's sarcasm as commentary on how we consider the death of a celebrity so tragic when there are so many people out there dying every day who get no attention.

on the other hand, i'd go about making that point differently.

You know...I haven't thought a lot about this. But...

I think there is something very unfortunate in this phenomenon. But, might lamenting/mourning the death of celebrities be a way that disparate individuals can come together in grief and thereby express a sense that *&^% sucks? Celebrities come into our homes...a lot of people feel like they know them in a way that we don't know, for instance, many victims of crime, soldiers, etc. (I think you also maybe see something similar when cases get a lot of publicity...I know there was a kid not far from where I grew up who was kidnapped and never found when I was really young, and it got massive amounts of publicity--people still talk about it).

So while I do think there's an indication of misplaced priorities, and I would like to see this kind of attention focused elsewhere, at least it's a general recognition that when someone hasn't had the opportunity to live a full life, or has so much potential, or leaves behind people who will be really hurt by the loss, that's a sad thing?

I don't know. I should go back to work :D

It just frustrates me that I'm working the same kind of job that someone still in college works, despite the fact that I graduated with a lot of honors, good internships, etc.  And I'm going to (hopefully) make about 5x as much per hour in a few years.


Suggestion: get over yourself.

If you were looking for something long term, fine. I could see being frustrated. But you're not. You have a few months between graduating and starting another academic program. Find a job that doesn't make you want to kill yourself (I worked as an administrative assistant [after I quit the job that made me want to kill myself] for 6 months, and while I kind of hated it, and the job didn't even require a college degree, it paid the bills, and I learned something about a new industry and met some great people). You might even find something interesting. But living off of credit cards for what, 8 months? is stupid, and it's even stupider to do it because you're frustrated that you don't have a job that reflects just how awesome you are.

Potential problem: not hearing the proctor say stop, continuing to work.
