Hey man, I’m glad you gave it a shot.

Mark Maron, who is a comedian, is also listed as a main source for some conclusions in this article. It’s worth noting

Congratulations, e!

Ugh. The story of the hiring process is frustrating. Even if it was difficult to decide on one person, I almost feel the hiring committee should have stuck to their original asks and made a decision. It is exhausting for applicants to have to go through unexpected and unplanned additional interviews/essays etc, and a bit unfair. I hope the job is satisfying.

I would be honest that I do think it’s hard to play the one and done application game, mainly because if you are rejected that’s so much time you’ve lost. When you have multiple plays in the game, your risk is a bit lower. Not everything riding on one thing. Maybe that would help with your feelings of agency too. When you only had one app out you really are dependent on that one job and their decision. But when you have multiple apps out, the focus is difused and you have multiple chances to “get in the game.” Just something to consider if it might help you feel more in control of things.

I hope it goes well! From another e.

Hey man, glad to hear of the highs, and accept the lows when/on your own time. That’s a bit of a brainfuck about the coworker. And good luck with those angry parents. Remember that no matter what decision you made, people would’ve been unhappy.

I’m rootin’ for ya! Talk soon.

I ran 16 times and 50 miles in February, which is right in line with my goal. For March the goal will be ~65 miles, 19 runs. I think somebody fixed the formatting in this post for me. glares suspiciously I know it was you, mk

It is funny, getting used to the south. I have a friend who really, really wants to be close friends with me and sometimes she does things which turn me off but which I believe are really just part of the hallmarks of southern hospitality — there’s a lot of offering of food and such — and I’m certainly getting my practice in saying the word s “no, thanks,” firmly but nicely. It’s good practice for just about anyone, I think.

I found this podcast called Radio Rental. true stories of crazy, weird, scary experiences people have had. Most of the stories or at least some have been sourced for Reddit. There’s only 12 episodes and I was hooked right away. I have one left!

I have been arting quite a bit. I finished the hobbit and now I’m rereading the Kahnemann. After that I may go to LOTR, or — the sandman graphic novels 1-3 AND swamp thing 1 are both in the free kindle library. I might have mentioned a while back I have an idea for a second issue of my Transcendental Realty comic. I think doing some research by revisiting some great comics is definitely required, right?

Hope y’all are well! Spring is coming.
