People suck at choosing passcodes

I work in a commercial building that, unbeknownst to me before this morning, doesn't open until 8am. Made it into work a little early today only to find myself locked out of the building. But there was a handy little keypad next to the door. What could the entry code be? Well, let's try the street address. Holy shit, that worked.

What's the deal with people wanting to go stay in a cabin with no electricity or running water for a month in exchange for $100,000?

Look, if you want to go stay in a cabin like that go rent one. There's plenty. No one is going to give you $100k for it, though, unless this is the advertising for some upcoming reality show of which I'm unaware. Seriously though, no one would care if you went and lived in a cabin off grid for a month. Instead of posting about it go do it. Please. That's one less car on the road for a month.

Every job wants someone who is "passionate"

I don't think that's me. I was reading a job ad and when I read that they wanted someone passionate I imagined myself sitting in an interview and being asked the question, "What are you passionate about?" and I couldn't answer the question. Normally in these imaginary conversations in my head I'm formatting an answer before the question even comes up but today I drew a blank. Am I so jaded that I'm not passionate about anything anymore? I have so many things to do that I don't have time to be passionate about any one thing. I'm trying to put a little time into a lot of things and just break even. Maybe that's why I'm having so much trouble finding a job: I don't have one thing that I love anymore. Fuck. I guess I need to trim down some of the things I'm doing.

Meaningless Social Media Gestures

Another barrage of people making meaningless gestures instead of actually doing something. Slacktivism, I think the pundits call it. Update your profile picture to support this cause. Set this as your status for one hour to show support for that (by the way, the News Feed made that irrelevant about 9 years ago; why do I still see it?), use this hashtag to join the conversation. I'm done with all this bullshit. If you want to support a cause then donate money or time, but writing a few words as a social media status isn't good enough in my book.
