This weekend, I had to buy “business casual” clothes, which meant I spent an hour walking through the aisles of Ross with my phone out trying to Google “business casual.” I landed a new entry level job at a corporate bookstore and the training orientation is next week. I’m required to wear something other than my hoodie, jeans, and flip flops. Life is hard.
While I’m excited to be working at a bookstore around the literary and faux-literary minded, I can’t help but feel a sort of angst, relating to that anonymous cog-in-the-machine feeling. Ya know, the one that makes you feel insignificant and tells you you’re going the wrong way, but which way is the right way, there are too many voices telling me what I should do rather than what I want to do, and they won’t stop playing that Justin Bieber song over the radio, why is this happening, what pants should I get, the goddamn pen is blue.
So let’s de-stress together with our favorite millennial comedian musician who definitely gets it – Mr. Bo Burnham.
what. Tune in each week for a new Saturday Songbird.
