NOAH HAWLEY

“I’m Noah Hawley an average American dad blogging about his experiences in life. Sometimes people confuse me with the famous screenwriter of the same name who wrote Fargo and Legion. But I’m just a happy normal guy with a wife, 1 daughter and an interest in DIY, cooking and coffee.”

3 Unexpected Tips For Achieving a Better Work-Life Balance

1.    Manage Your Side Hustle Commitment   American Millennials are spenders, according to The Modern Wealth Index, a national survey by Koski Research and the Schwab Center for Financial Research. This might, at least partially, explain the growing popularity of the side hustle. However, the results of the Index also revealed that saving, investing, and regular financial planning are important goals for those of us in our twenties and thirties. How can we be big spenders and big savers? Well, we do crazy things like researching a gazillion ways to pay for the things we love to splurge on. “99 Side Hustle Business Ideas?” Really? These seem totally doable and worth trying but unfortunately, most of those gigs are not going to improve your work-life balance. They could even lead to metabolic syndrome and other devastating, not to mention costly, health issues. On the other hand, being a workaholic could work out in your favor if you’re an “engaged” employee. Let’s say you’re putting in extra hours as part of your strategy to pay off student loans or to retire early. That’s great! Don’t forget to give yourself time to recharge and account for those additional work hours when planning your schedule. To find a safe and sustainable balance between your day job and side job, consider using tools like Evernote’s new “Get Things Done® (GTD)” Templates. They’re super-easy and very effective at helping you to streamline your work tasks while avoiding perpetual burnout. 2.    Get Tested for Allergies and…

Way to live a simple life in modern world:

Gone are the days when people were chilled out, relishing every moment that passed by. It’s the super fast paced age now! One where one click, your bestie abroad is in front of your face, or the temperature of your home gets adjusted, and food gets delivered to your home!….no one has the time to wait. And no one pays heed to William Henry Davies’ words: “What is this life ‘tis full of care We have no time to stand and stare.” This is the modern age. Filled with GenX, millennials and post-millennials, we have entered into a world where fake and virtual friendships are valued more than the real, genuine ones. And this is a world where we are connected, yet end up feeling alone. So, how can you improve the quality of your life in this scenario? I have a few tips…take a look! Learn to keep away from your phone: As much of a saviour it is, your smartphone is equally destructive! You don’t realise how much of precious time you’re wasting on fruitless browsing through countless social networking apps. We have this constant urge to update and constantly be updated without realising it’s not necessary at all. If possible switch to a “Dumb Phone”. That is the best solution and will put an end to most of your worries. Join a Passion/Hobby club: Don’t deny, we all have that one hobby or passion which we love dearly, but unfortunately, don’t manage to “find time” for it….

Tips to survive in a Modern world:

Virtual world – that’s where we live! Snail mail is out of fashion, booking tickets on the platform are so passé’ and not being on social media apps makes you an alien! Anything and everything can be done – you’re just a few clicks away! But in this fast-paced world, how is one supposed to cope up? With constant changes and fluctuations in everything, is it possible to survive, to co-exist peacefully? Yes, it is! We have a few tips which you could consider in your quest to survive in this world! Learn to cook: If you’re equipped with the skill of cooking, you can survive anywhere in the world! You need not be a master chef and whip out delicacies of different cuisines; all you need are skills that are enough to keep your tummy full with some edible food! Also, imagine how much you will end up saving. Because let’s accept it, food ordered online or eaten in a restaurant is way expensive than cooking by yourself. Indulging sometimes is great, but make an effort to cook for yourself. Get a roommate: Instead of renting out a place all by you, get a roommate! Cost cutting and fun company are the benefits of living with a roomie. Plus, after a hard day at work or college, it’s really comforting to know that you have someone to share your troubles with back home. Living alone can be really tough, both emotionally and financially. Getting a roommate will put an…

Fargo review

fargo_s3

“Fargo” is a pointillist’s dream. In the third season of the anthology series, so many tiny details stand out: There are the perfectly mussed curls of a self-important executive’s hair, which is either inartfully permed or naturally sports a douche-y bounce. The impressive brushiness of the mustache worn by his business partner is almost inspirational; the thick, hairy mass is perfectly suited to sitting over a mouth that often frowns suspiciously and dutifully drags out key vowels. Then there’s the perfectly faded paint job of one character’s vintage Corvette. Not much has to be done to establish the guy’s down-on-his-luck status, not when the formerly glorious, now-tired red of the car’s exterior says so much about the small humiliations and disappointing setbacks that have accrued in his paunchy middle age. It’s when you expand outward from those grace notes that the show’s grasp on one’s attention begins to shake and wobble. Sure, it’s a hoot to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead exude rocker-chick attitude as a character named Nikki Swango, a TV name so memorable it’s hard to believe that a hard-boiled detective in the ’70s didn’t already make it iconic. Scoot McNairy, so great as a romantic geek on “Halt and Catch Fire,” has a lot of fun playing a very dumb stoner who is extremely bad at the life of crime he’s chosen. Michael Stuhlbarg, who sports the brushy ’stache mentioned above, is able to make the word “jeez” mean so many different things, which is one of the…

Fargo review – what really makes this season is Ewan McGregor. Twice

There is a quintessential Fargo moment in the first episode of the third installment of the FX series, when sexy parolee and competitive bridge player Nikki Swango looks at her balding, pot-bellied, stamp-obsessed, Corvette-driving boyfriend (and parole officer) Ray Stussy and says this: “We’re a team, you and me. Simpatico, to the point of spooky.” If you’re obsessed with Noah Hawley’s virtuoso reimagining of Fargo as a television series, then you’ll know the key words from above are “competitive bridge player,” “stamp-obsessed,” “Corvette,” “simpatico,” “spooky” and, only to a slightly lesser extent, “Swango” and “Stussy.” The details always matter in Fargo: the words and names and how they’re pronounced; the visually adroit use of wide shots right before the cameras dive in to see what outside influence will try to unsettle the belief systems of the locals; the raucous, upbeat music and the stoic, placid people; the overall tone, which is a dance of the quirky with the folksy, almost always ending in the deadly. These are the trademark Fargo elements that crop up each season. It’s all here. So, too, is the “Minnesota nice” philosophy being challenged by the intrusion of evil — a disruptive force crashing into people who not only fail to see it coming, but often don’t have the worldview to fathom its very existence. All of these are typical of Fargo, from the original Coen brothers’ movie in 1996 to the last two impressive television seasons from Hawley (who wrote the first two season-three episodes sent to critics for review, directed the first one, and…

‘Legion’ Is the Most Mindblowing Show on TV Right Now

marvels-legion

We should start with the nightclub dance-off, which is as good a place as any to start with Legion. David Haller – the FX show’s lead, played by former Downton Abbeyactor and candidate for one of the most pleasurably WTF career U-turns, Dan Stevens – is a mutant. As in, one of the Homo superior players in the endless X-Men saga; the show is, in the least strictest sense, an X-spinoff set in the X-universe owned by Fox. He can read minds, control minds, move things with his mind … and has completely lost his mind. The series’ first season was largely set inside a mental institution called the Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital, where he resided with, among others, a young female mutant named Syd Barrett. (There are a lot of references in this show. So.Many. References.) At the end of its initial eight-episode run, a number of plot strands were tied up, others were left swinging low and wide and our hero had been zapped up by a flying orb and mysteriously shuttled away. You know, typical Peak TV season-finale stuff. When the new season kicked off last April, we found out that David had been returned home from … somewhere. The parasitic demon that had been living in his head, one prone to take the form of a particularly batshit Aubrey Plaza, is on the loose. Syd (the wonderful Rachel Keller) remains hurt by his absence, but is happy to have him back. So is the secret organization that wants to harness the power…
