Success! A whole 6 hours earlier than yesterday’s post. Can you guess where I am? Yup, that would be Panera. They should just hire me.
While doing my daily dose of ridiculous amounts of news/career reading, I found myself on JakeonJobs.com‘s blog reading about something I blogged about yesterday, Entourage. Jake’s post, Never-Ending Stories of Whining, Waiting and (Vincent) Chasing, took a different approach to the season finale than I did. He agrees that Vinny has lost his confidence and swagger, but argues that he just waited around for his next dream role to fall in his lap. Jake’s right—Vinny just moped around while his best friend/manager E (Eric) did a hell of a lot of work for him. Though Jake has raised a good point, I’m still taking Vinny’s lead role in the Scorsese film as a positive sign. After all, I’ve been doing the work of E and agent Ari, times ten. Plus, Adrien Grenier went to LaGuardia Arts High School, which just happens to be my alma matter, so it is like, totally still a sign.
Bottom line: No one should be just waiting around in this climate. Get up and get out there and find what you are looking for.
Today I did some resume revamping, applying, connecting and contacting—the usual. I’ve landed some freelance assignments as a result! Exciting, indeed. Speaking of assignments, that’s what I’m off to do now.
Tomorrow brings a conference, two meetings and another blog post.
