They’re not the most convenient, easy to use, or forgiving machines, but there was a point in time where typewriters were the staple of society. While truly productive life has moved on to more user-friendly methods of production (like Microsoft Word), it’s good to be able to appreciate them for what they are– niche, a little obnoxious, and a quite a bit of fun.

But how does one define success in this hectic world? For some, it would be a job with aRead More

I don’t make $100,000 a year and I doubt anyone else reading this does. I’ve waded into the waters inhabited by those vicious fish that do however and in my experiences they’re typically a delusional, chum hungry school whose collective philosophy is founded in the belief that “success is only measurable by monetary gain”. If you reap profit, you’re a fellow god and if you don’t? You’re a peon and solely responsible for your rotten break on the festering underside of the heap. “He should have gone to college!
