This is so incredibly overdue. Apologies. I saw If/Then in DC back in December and I promised a few people (namely darlinginmyway) that I would share thoughts, and I never got around to it. Suffice it to say, I suck.
Without further ado (because isn’t four months enough ado) here are my handful of thoughts:
-I loved it. It’s fun. I had fun.
-Idina (obviously) still has it, spoiler alert: so does Anthony Rapp.
-It was really awesome, and honestly sort of inspiring, to see Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp onstage together.
-LaChanze, of course, is something of a master class in performance unto herself. She absolutely does not disappoint.
-My favorite ensemble member was Ann Sanders — if you see the show, watch out for her. She’s got such an awesome, big, pretty voice.
-Cautionary note: I’m not sure how much you all know about the plot. I will avoid giving away any details beyond this — it’s really sort of two stories in one, and that can be a little confusing at first, so you really have to pay close attention at the very beginning. As things progress you begin to realize the cues (for example, different nicknames) and it makes it easier to follow the two stories.
-Random fun note: The night I saw the show, the former Mr. Sutton Foster, Christian Borle was in audience, and EVERYONE knew it. (A woman next to me in line for the restroom said to me “I’ve never seen that show Smash, but I heard one of the guys from it is here tonight.)
Overall, I recommend seeing it, if you can. The songs are fun and in some cases a little risque and the cast is obviously great. Let me know if any of you get to see it!

Please help

I am applying to jobs in another state. My partner and I are planning the move. Tentatively, the sooner one of us gets a job, the sooner we’ll move to that state. (In other words, if said job stated “We need you here by June 1 - we would be there by June 1.) If neither of us has a job by August, we’ll likely just move in September or October regardless.

Question: In my cover letter, should I mention the fact that the state in the address on my resume is far away from the state in which I am applying? Or just leave it alone entirely?

Ugh when people ask you about your availability

And you know you are literally available all day every day because you have nothing going on but you feel compelled to lie as to not appear like a total loser.

shadesofmauve - Yeah that’s the issue, isn’t it? I’m reading “What Color is your Parachute” right now in the hopes of figuring that out. -OR- figuring out how to figure that out. I’ll let you know if I learn anything useful. Please standby.

The crime which bankrupts men and nations is that of turning aside from one’s main purpose to serve a job here and there.
OH! OH REALLY? You’ll let me be your photographer/web designer/social media manager/fundraiser/publicist just for fun? Just as a hobby every other week?

Fuck off.

Things the internet will never get me to care about:

-The end of HIMYM (honestly, you should have been watching Happy Endings, anyway)
-Who is on the cover of Vogue
-“Kimye”
-Gwyneth Paltrow’s divorce (or any other “celeb divorce”)
-Anything Lady Gaga does in the future or has done ever in her life

Things the internet will never stop me from caring about:


-babies
-puppies
-food
Decades of research have discovered that willpower is not something you have or don’t have, but rather it is a resource that can be used up and restored. Like tired muscles at the end of a workout, your willpower can become depleted if you use it too much…We don’t typically think about willpower and motivation as a finite resource that is impacted by all of the things we do throughout the day, but that’s exactly how it works.
