She was in a lot of more serious works too, like uh…you know…Shanghai Noon.
I’ve been having a lot of conversations about line of work lately. Still being trapped in the student world I have a complex relationship with the workforce. You mean, they pay you money you keep? You don’t have to give it back to Sallie Mae in a little while?
More to the point, I think it’s been mythologized that there’s this job that’s out there where oh, if you find it, you’ll never work a day in your life. Granted, some of the people who I’ve talked to are working jobs that are genuinely boring and menial. But even the people who are doing precisely what they want to have rarely posited that it’s effortless.
There is a problem with the idea that what is good is easy. In reality it’s more of a matter of satisfaction. You’re going to bust your ass to make that paycheck. I think that’s inevitable. If you can come home and say “alright, I did something today,” if it’s something that’s worth it, and know you can get food and a house, well that’s pretty damn good. About as good as it gets.
Unless you’re these guys.
