Arlington Cinema And Drafthouse
I went to see Clerks II and I thought it was hilarious. It made me think of what we perceive as "social norm" and "social success", but that usually doesn't involve "personal happiness". I moved to DC trying to advance my "social success" of boosting my career. Society trains us to think "if I have a good career, I will be successful in the eyes of others". The general idea is "This guy has a good job; he is more successful than I am and I would like to be more like him". Where in the equation factors in "personal happiness"?
I remember my first job out of college, making $25k/year, and I remember being a lot happier then. I was surrounded by friends, hanging out with them every weekend, paying my $300/month rent in an apartment with a lot of roommates, and having nothing to worry about. Have I really made the right decisions in life like I thought I did?
But back to Arlington Cinema 'n' Drafthouse, I took advantage of the $1 Monday night movie special, but ordered a Margarita that cost me around $7 after tips. Yeah, funny how things work out.
