Here’s a piece of job hunting advice that everyone gives and that’s very hard to take — keep a positive attitude. That is, unfortunately, not the easiest thing in the world to do.

It’s not exactly how I would choose to spend my evening, but it’s not really about me, is it? It’s about two little kids who love High School Musical and want to see Shar-pay sing. I’ll have a good time watching my kids have a good time and isn’t that what it’s really all about?
