Here's what is going on in my world this week:
- Mad Men, Season 7
Now that Netflix has finally made the entire final season of Mad Men available to stream, I've began to finish up this modern classic, of which I have been a fan of for a while now. I love the historical perspective of the entire series, and the character study of Don Draper, which has really come to a head in this last string of episodes. I've gotten through the first half of season 7, and I'm eager to see how they wrap everything up. While it doesn't hold the same high place as Breaking Bad for me, Mad Men is still something special and unique. It is an acquired taste I feel, so just know that if you check it out, it may not be for you.
- Job Search
I'm currently continuing my search for the next step in my career, and as it stands now, it's two years removed from when I was undertaking this process as I prepared to graduate from my master's program. It's funny to think back to where I was then, and where I am now, and how these searches are similar as well as different. This time, I've allowed myself to be a bit more picky, I'm less region bound, and I have had more leads now than I did before. I hope to have some positive updates soon, as I'm struggling a bit being patient. Searching can be enjoyable in some aspects, but the waiting around really gets me all worked up.
- Spring Break
I'm currently planning on how to spend my spring break with my partner. Everything is on the table from me needing to get my wisdom teeth out (no fun) to possibly going to Canada together, us finally visiting some of her extended family and friends in upstate New York, or something else entirely. It's about a month away and it's tough to figure out how we want to spend this valuable time. Do you use it to take care of personal stuff or do you take time to get away? Neither answer is entirely right or wrong, you (and we) just have to make a call and go with it. I'm really hoping I am able to get my wisdom teeth out before and not have too much recovery time, so that I can try to just enjoy my break.
