Cynicism Over

I have to say, a lot of my bitter tirades against the state of society come from one little thing: as a long time unemployed fellow, it seems society found little value in me and (as a fellow who maintained some semblance of self-worth) I consequently found little value in society.

Well, having landed a job (albeit a temporary one) that’s no longer the case: society has found slightly over minimum wage worth of value in me, and that’s a heck of a lot more than zero.  Okay, society, maybe you’re not such a bad chap after all.

With the massive round of layoffs in several industries right now (and my own position hardly being permanent) I know my own ounce of optimism is probably being met by a pound of replacement cynicism.  Well, chin up, if a naive student fresh out of school can find some temporary labor, perhaps this is an early sign of an economy turning around.
