Terry Stotts He might be the best coach you never heard of. Until Monday night. And who knows if it is his fault or if his players didn’t execute a game plan. Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade’s new Jordan Brand commercial is decidedly different from new teammate LeBron James’ new Nike ad. “Dominate Another Day” shows Wade as super hero Agent D3 starting his quest for another NBA championship. “Time to bring the rings back to Miami,” he says.
They interviewed me, quickly discerned that I was not quite bereft of brains (“Put the following states in alphabetical order: Utah, Arkansas, Idaho, and Nebraska”), that my knowledge of software programs was scant (“But it says on your resume that you are proficient in Word, WordPerfect and Excel”), and that despite three typing tests I could never exceed twenty nine words a minute, which was most unfortunate because the temp agency determined wages based on typing speed. And so after six years of exceedingly expensive, private school tertiary education combined with the amassment of some interesting and potentially job relevant experiences elsewhere in the world, I became a minimum wage temp, an experience that need not be recounted with much detail, though I will note that to be a temp is to have all the illusions and conceits of youth shattered, which was useful and necessary though disagreeable.My temporary job assignments varied, taking me from law firm to trade association and around again, and always I would be led to the ominous file room and told with the patient civility reserved for the learning impaired that I was to make some order of the files. In the few assignments that lasted longer than a week I was offered the opportunity to enhance my skills and I would be taught how to answer the phone while others were on their lunch break, and even how to order office supplies, which I should note is usually very complicated indeed.
Where titles overlap years, only the part which debuted in 2014 is eligible for consideration.WARNING: Although we have tried to minimize spoilers, certain awards include major spoilers for the final episodes of Sword Art Online II and School Days and late season episodes of The Fruit of Grisaia and Fairy Tail II.Theron: Rebecca and I both commented at length about our picks in the Your Top 5 Anime of 2014 feature a couple of weeks ago, so we’re only going to offer brief thoughts here.Of Rebecca’s picks that I haven’t already commented on, Chaika was a series that I enjoyed very much (I am also a huge fan of Scrapped Princess) and thought had many interesting twists, but for me it always fell just a little short of greatness and its final episode certainly didn’t help on that. Yona of the Dawn was one of the Fall season titles that I was interested in, but I did not make it past episode 2 because I already had a whopping 10 other titles I was following (a personal record, and I’m still amazed that I kept up with them all) and had to cut something. And after watching the final episode of Yuki Yuna, I think I would have to have a long debate with myself about whether it or Nozaki kun deserves the top place more, so I will leave that ordering as is for now.Rebecca: I found myself agreeing with those of Theron’s picks I’d seen, and some of them were contenders for my Top Five as well.
