Hey Geeks. Another piece of nifty that I found in my reader this morning. Apparently this girl from Seattle , Erin Michael Vondrak really really really really wants to work for Valve. So much so, that she put together this song and animation. If you don’t know who Valve is (’cause I didn’t), they’re the guys who made the Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Half-Life Games. As someone who needs a job right now, I can appreciate what she’s trying to do. The only problem I’m having right now (actually it’s kind of a crisis), is I really really really really don’t want to work for anyone! Whenever I try writing a cover letter, or I’m about to send off a portfolio sample (and even freelancing is really getting at me lately), my stomach starts to twist in on itself. So I can’t see myself doing something like this anytime soon… honestly I can’t think of anyone I would want to do it for. I know what you’re thinking, “shut the fuck up, and get to work you lazy little bitch!” Maybe I am being lazy, I don’t know. I just know that thinking about having to punch in everyday, or having a boss hang over my shoulder, or having a paycheck held out in front of me like a carrot on a stick… well, it just makes me want to puke.
Anyhow, good luck to you Erin. Hopefully you’ll find the dream job you’re looking for. Hopefully we at Atomic Moo will to.
