I think it’s been awhile since my last Calvin’s Corner, so I’ll write a quick one here. I’ve been a little more active with my writing recently, because there’s been a lot of interesting stuff going on. But I think it’ll still be good to write down my thoughts once in a while.
Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of Louis CK. I absolutely love his humor. I feel like the way he sees and describes the world is exactly the same as me. I think in the past 2 weeks or so, I’ve basically watched all of his stand up videos on Youtube. I definitely don’t think his humor is for everyone, since it’s kind of dark and depressing, but also has a lot of truth to it. Oh, and there’s a lot of masturbation jokes thrown in as well.
I watched season 1 and 2 of his FX show Louie while I was still in the US, and recently I watched a couple of his season 3 episodes. I saw a clip where he interviewed a cleaning lady, and I almost died laughing. The reactions, facial expressions, and timing, they all get funnier every time I watch it. So after seeing that Youtube clip, I had to watch the 3 episode mini-series from season 3 where he tries to get his own late show.
Also, the last episode of season 3 was pretty good too, since he came to Beijing (sorry about the spoiler).
Anyway, there’s some other stuff I want to write about, but I think it’s going to take me longer than 15 minutes, so I’ll wrap it up here.
Shit I just realized I didn’t actually write down any of my thoughts. I only wrote about what I’ve been doing…
Well I’m kind of having a quarter-life crisis a few years late (actually now that I think about it, does quarter-life crisis happen at 25? That assumes we live to 100, and I definitely don’t think I’m getting that far…)
I’m still trying to figure out a career path for myself. Not sure if my job is something I want to be doing long term, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find something to do in China at this stage in my career. I don’t want to keep having to start over, but man is it tough. I’ll save the bitching for another time, but it’s something I need to figure out soon.
OK, so now I’m really done. Adios until next time.
