Yes, what WOULD Buffy do?

As you all know, my impulsive decision and pretty much lack of sense has landed me in the unemployment line again, so you know I'm not feeling very good anymore. Hard to keep my spirits up in the job search, but I'm trying very hard too, but am enjoying the comfort I receive from fellow bloggers. I took to reading, and am currently reading "What Would Buffy Do?" No, you shouldn't be surprised it has something to do with Buffy. But a spiritual guide to Buffy? Talk about hitting the jackpot, dontcha think? Well, I do.

The book is written by a religious book review editor, and she disects the series and points out the "spiritural core" of the series, such as forgiveness, compassion, love, self-sacrifice and redemption. Not to mention the ambiguity of God and Evil (Vampires, demons, inner demons, supernatural)

It's a very interesting, enlightening and touching read. Definetly shows that the show had a lot more spiritural overtones than people may now. This books offers a supurb analysis of the show and its stories/themes/metaphors. A very good read, but it's probably best appreciated by a Buffy fan; however, even the casual viewer will most likely enjoy this.

So, along with praying every day for a job, I looked to Buffy as a spiritual guide as well; Buffy always helped me before, why not now? At any rate, I just wanted to share.

    Cool! Sorry you're not feeling good though :(...don't let unemployment get you down! I think leaving a job you weren't happy in even though you didn't have another one lined up was very brave...not stupid at all! This is a great chance for you to do stuff you don't normally get a chance to do because you're too busy...like reading your new book! We've ALL been in the unemployment line...Mr HDD and I didn't have jobs for a month when we moved to NM! Your book sounds interesting, when I was a teenager I read a book called The Tao of Pooh...it explained taoism by using the characters of Winnie the Pooh...very interesting.

    HDD--I believe they mentioned tha tao of Pooh in this book. I'm certainly going try and immerse myself in it and forget the real world for a minute.

    Good luck in your job search. It hasn't been that long since I was in the unemployment line myself. Enjoy your free time and DON'T WORRY! It always works out.
