Director Evan Jackson Leong is Linsanity’s Biggest Champion

I interviewed this filmmaker, Evan Jackson Leong, about his documentary, “Linsanity,” which went to Sundance this year and is hitting theaters around… now! It’s about New York Knicks’ point guard Jeremy Lin’s rise to fame. Check out the article, which is in Mochi Magazine’s Fall 2013 issue.

pgl: despite being a few hours apart, deciding you and your good friend should meet up for a weekend a “year or two from now” depending on when she finishes grad school. since grad school is the BIGGEST TIME SUCK ever.

animelonely asked: I just saw your post about swing shift. Is it really that ok? What about having to adjust to different shifts? I have my first post-graduation interview this week, and it's for a swing shift position, and that terrifies me.

It’s really okay. Don’t be terrified! I have the 2pm-10pm shift, but I’m also friends with people who have the night shift of 10pm-6am. There are pros to both shifts, surprisingly enough. Mine being that it gives me time to sleep in, enjoy the morning, run errands when it’s less crowded, and I don’t get out so late that people don’t want to see me after. Most people don’t want to meet (which saves me money), but it’s not ungodly to grab a drink past 10 either. As for the real night shift, my friends say it’s really not that terrible. They still have time to see their friends for dinner in the evening, and if they get home by 5 or 6 am, they really only sleep in until 11 and so then they have the afternoon to get things done. Having the swing/night shifts might not be ideal, but chances are, you won’t be on yours forever and if this is a good career opportunity for you, I say definitely consider making the jump.
