Overheard at Table Four

if you don't think that you'll be able to find a job in this environment then just stop looking.

yeah but then how am I gonna eat?

we're here, right now, in this cafe, right? We're eating sandwiches and drinking coffee, right?


and do you worry about how we're gonna pay for that?

actually, yes I do.

well . . . that blows my theory. I was gonna go into the "toil not neither do they spin" speech from Spock.

actually, it's from the Bible.

yeah. right. Spock was quoting the Bible. He's just that kind of Vulcan. But back to my main point - we're eating! We're having coffee. We're going to do this tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after. All you have to do is just keep an eye out, but don't kill yourself doing it - keep looking, but not acting like you have to carry the burden - the pressure itself will cause your failure. Faith that everything will work out all right will clear your mind enough to see those opportunities and say the right things at what interview you do get.

you sound almost zen-like.

I call it Jesus-Zen. Or just JEE-zen, for short.

you are definitely the strangest person I know.
