Welcome to Matinee Wednesday. 1980-1989 was the era of big hair, big dreams and great movies. Take a break from work and grad some Twizzlers.
Weird Science (1985)
Two unpopular teenagers, Gary and Wyatt, fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to “create” a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is a gorgeous woman, Lisa, whose purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require Gary and Wyatt to act like men. On their road to becoming accepted, they encounter many hilarious obstacles, which gives the movie an overall sense of silliness. Written by Jeff Ranous <email@example.com>
LESSON: You never know what you can do with technology and a little resourcefulness. Gary and Wyatt saw something missing in their lives and created someone to fix it. While you cannot create your dream boss, you can do self-assessment and research target companies so that you are more likely to create your dream job. You can use all sorts of technology; social media, email and the telephone. Through your use of technology you can turn yourself into an expert. Blog and tweet about your area of expertise; share related articles. Will you look like or get to date Kelly LeBrock? Doubtful. However, your confidence will be boosted and you will be more accepted by your peers and colleagues.
