Friday Recap: Last Dance Edition
Have I told you lately that I love you? Yeah, all you wonderful readers who brighten my day every time I see a tweet go by with a link to a post or a thoughtful comment left on the blog. I know I didn’t say it enough in my two years as blogger here at Bruce Clay, Inc., but you guys, this industry, my friends are amazing.
Enough sappy for right now. How’s about some recappy?
There’s a magic number that determines the maximum happiness factor a person can have and that’s $75,000. Your happiness can increase with your income up to that level, and after that it’s all the same. Unless you live in New York, where you’ve got to make $163,500 to get to the top echelons of satisfaction. Cost of living is a killer.
Thought you wanted to be one of the popular kids in school? Well turns out being popular comes with a price tag, and that’s the flu. The more friends you have, the more likely you’re going to get the flu before everyone else, on average two weeks sooner than most. Everything’s a trade off, after all.
As I embark on a new chapter of my professional career, one freelance writer’s thoughts on the toils and tribulations of the craft got me laughing so hard I’m actually looking forward to it. “Excuse me while I hang out with my pet dragon and have a tea party in Narnia.”
Except, you know me. I have a pet tortoise, whom I like to think of as a baby dinosaur. Tortoises are quite lovely animals, wise and patient and gentle to a fault. So I can sympathize with Leonardo DiCaprio, who has fallen for their charms and adopted a beautiful African Sulcata. I’m pretty sure that puts me within six degrees of Hollywood’s favorite Romeo.
With that, take it away DJ!
All my love,
