Reasons I'm applying at Lululemon (and elsewhere):
Starbucks isn’t the same company I started working for three years ago. Before, it was about the coffee and the experience; now it’s just about profits, meeting sales targets on new products, and all while the quality of our coffee suffers.
My sleep schedule has reached critically unhealthy levels, and this can almost certainly be attributed entirely to my work schedule at Starbucks. As much as I love coffee and tea, I don’t love it enough to wake up at 3:30am three times a week in order to serve grouchy, unappreciative people coffee that I get complaints about on the regular.
I’m working on trying to live a more healthy lifestyle. Lululemon, as a company, is dedicated to ensuring that it’s employees are able to live active, healthy lifestyles. They pay for freaking yoga classes!
I’m fairly certain they pay more than Starbucks does (this surprised me, actually).
Let's say you and I go on a date (and maybe more!) What are your plans for the occasion? (And is there any "maybe more?")
Well since you have a job in the arts, I’d say:
classy wine-based dinner
a quick puff puff pass in a park
on-stage seats for “Spring Awakening”.
(As for the “maybe more”, it all depends on #s 1 and 2. I was “bi” for a little while and I’ve had “maybe more” with a couple women, but I feel like I’m strictly boys from here on out. Then again, I haven’t been trashed in a while ;) )
The Middle East peace process is finished. It did not die: it was killed. Mahmoud Abbas was undermined by the President of the Palestinian Authority and humiliated by the Prime Minister of Israel. His successor awaits a similar fate. Israel continues to mock its American patron, building illegal settlements in cynical disregard of the “road map.” The President of the United States of America has been reduced to a ventriloquist’s dummy, pitifully reciting the Israeli cabinet line: “It’s all Arafat’s fault.” Israelis themselves grimly await the next bomber. Palestinian Arabs, corralled into shrinking Bantustans, subsist on EU handouts. On the corpse-strewn landscape of the Fertile Crescent, Ariel Sharon, Yasser Arafat, and a handful of terrorists can all claim victory, and they do. Have we reached the end of the road? What is to be done?
I was contacted recently to work on a huge, nationwide project with Future Democrats. I don’t really know any details at this point, but I hope it’s something legit and gets me more in touch with the progressive wing of the party…
I'm working with the pride planning commission here in DC. they want an alcohol free event Saturday after the parade, and they want to charge for admission. I have no idea how this is feasible. What are they doing in Miami?
Honestly, I think our Pride is smaller than yours and I don’t know of any events that are being orchestrated by the actual Pride committee that they are doing afterward. Everything that is going on after Pride (to the best of my knowledge) is being planned and organized by outside groups like PrideLines (an organization that helps gay youth). Sorry I can’t be of more help at the moment, but I’ll do what I can to help you out if I find out anything more than I know at the moment.
Also: will I be seeing you at my birthday extravaganzas sometime while I’m in DC from April 1-12?! Please say yes, OK?!
