One Week Job

A 25 year old college graduate Sean Aiken decided that he wanted to complete a project in which he worked fifty two jobs in a year so one job a week in order to find his true passion. This concept came to Sean when he realized that he had no idea what he wanted to do professionally with his life once he had completed his degree. He had originally been funded by his parents but the project in itself quickly gathered a public interest and he managed to raise over $20,000 for his campaign.

      Why?

    I don’t think it is at all fair to say that only a person with such a vacant expression and inane set to the mouth should be capable of such narcissistic waste of everybody’s time. I don’t agree either that only someone who has probably been told that on account of the set of his lips he should go don a stupid wigger haircut and try playing at being a bleach-rasta (trustafarian). I just think somebody should give him even more money to make even longer more idiotic videos and hopefully that way finally bore the entire population of the world — which, strangely, has allowed his comfortably middle class priveleged gurning and empty survival survival so far — to death.

      I couldn’t agree more. The narcissism that must be involved in doing such a completely pointless exercise. Not only have I learned nothing from watching, I bet he didn’t learn anything either. The idea that you could get to 22 or whatever and not have any idea which direction your passion lies in is only surpassed in stupidity by the idea that you could then happen upon your passion by randomly selecting jobs and only doing them for one week.

      e.g. “We started hanging out quite a bit and SHE got to know ME a bit more”

      narcissist.

      The haircut is whatever, but I agree otherwise.
