The POST Graduate

A blog chronicling the indefinite countdown to landing my first job in post graduate life.

In the meantime, enjoy my ongoing relationship with my Netflix account and popular culture.

Rarely do I ever watch political dramas, but House of Cards has left an impression. There is a sharpness to the characters and dialogue, which create an almost seamless exchange in how the story lines overlap.

I need to channel my inner Francis Underwood.

This did not fill in the void that was created by Downton Abbey .

No GIF is needed to describe the greatest of Maggie Smith.

I think this is where Gwyneth Paltrow got the the inspiration for GOOP. Because to be honest, this movie was full of nothingness. I still can’t believe this beat Saving Private Ryan and Thin Red Line for best picture.

Post Script
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, what happened to Joseph Fiennes? It’s like, he went from this movie to American Horror Story.

If Woody Allen had a baby with Audrey Tatou, you would get Julie Delpy. Who wants to start fuckyeahjuliedelpy?

Post Script
What happened to Chris Rock?

I feel utterly tricked. Julie Delpy is trying to pull a fast one by filling in my Sunrise/Sunset void.

Post Script
What happened to Adam Goldberg?

I finally saw the sequel to Before Sunrise. I think I smell a Julie Delpy movie marathon.

Last night, I saw Zero Dark Thirty for the second time. Where do I sign up for the CIA?

Post Script
Seriously though.

In keeping with tradition, I am watching Sixteen Candles on my birthday. Let’s face it, most likely I will end up like poor Farmer Ted here by the end of the night.

Post Script
Hopefully it comes and goes - utterly forgettable.

Thank you Jesus for making Downton Abbey’s season 2 better and exciting. After taking a hiatus from the first season, I was starting to think that I wasted my time. Now, I am dedicating the next 17 hours of my life catching up.

Jimmy Fallon spoofing the DA opening credits? Classic.

Today, I experienced what I will call a major “bummer moment”. Let’s just say things did not follow through as I thought they would on the job front.

To bounce back and regain momentum, I am channeling Pam Grier’s Jackie Brown. Because let’s face it, once Jackie found that bag of cocaine in her carry-on and went to jail for it, she didn’t let that get the best of her. Instead, she got out of jail and planned her revenge on that muthafucker Ordel. Oops, excuse the language.
