We are 12 mins from Midnight here in Ireland.
12 mins from the 9th of January 2012.
There's nothing specific about the 9th of January 2012, which is tomorrow except the fact that tomorrow it will be exactly one year from the day I created this blog.
But we are not there yet. And in the meantime, I can get to talk about the movie I just saw.
A comedy set in the summer of 1987 and centered around a recent high
school grad who takes a nowhere job at his local amusement park.
But that's besides the point.
The point I want to make is how very interesting the Director and writer Greg Mottola made this movie, how this non-life of a kid waiting for his life to begin is actually a real life full of joy and sadness, deceit and hope, treason and passion.
Yet in a normal day-to-day job. Well even worse than a day-to-day job. A shitty job.
It nearly made me want to apply for a position into an adventureland park so I could feel alive, make friends, lose friends, smoke pot, fall in love, have your heart broken, get drunk and be okay.
Nearly make you want to live so you can actually have something to write about. Something unusual. Something fun.
It made me wonder one question to the writers/bloggers out there:
As a writer/blogger, what type of job have you ever felt like doing so you would get inspiration?
The jobs that you would really love to try so you would have something to talk/write about?
