The Aspirations of Young People

Sitting outside on the courtyard of my school on this beautiful San Francisco day….


Friend: "What I’m most looking forward to is someday joining a men’s softball team. I want to go out on Sunday afternoons with a bunch of drunk co-workers in a men’s league. I’ll be like, ‘Hey, there’s Rick from finance in left field! That son-of-a-bitch, I haven’t seen him in three weeks!’ "

Me: [Laughing hard] "Tell me you got that from some movie, since that’s brilliant if you made that up on the spot."

Friend: "Quasi made up…Workplace jargon, I love it."

And that, my friends, is Generation Y’s loving anticipation of corporate America.

    Beer softball = greatest time of all time. My biggest regret about college is not being able to play IM softball. Get out there with a 30 pack of beer, in the sun, playing softball. Awesome times.

    When you’re statistically destined to end up in a middle-class cube farm, solace takes many shapes. After dipping my toes into the pool of corporate America for the past four years, I’m ready to turn around and never come back.

    The sad thing is that many of us would never revisit a childhood favorite like softball if not for corporate peer pressure.

    Note to all: Don’t wait for an excuse to play drunken softball (sloshball, as we called it in college). Be the excuse!

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask! Smurfs Village Hack
