Ok, makes more sense now... so you weren't exactly homeless except for the year you lived in the car. But, still i define homeless as living on the street waiting in lines for food. but everyone has their own definition. I'm hoping you got things worked out with your family sounds like you went thru some stressful times. I figured you had to have someone take a liking to you or have connections. I am curious how you got the fork lift job which i do believe requires a special lic. to operate though.

As for offering the job to a 19 year old female it does look strange and you have to admit that... i understand you wanting to give someone a chance being that you went thru so much, but in today's world just risky for a female or anyone to take you up on an offer like this.


Everyone needs help at one point in their life. I didn't have much, but I got it when I needed it most. I was just trying to be friendly, and it seems to give off a weird vibe. Which was not my intent. It's not like I was expecting some stranger to be gun-ho about a serious albeit unrealistic offer. I was serious about helping with a resume however. College applications are a large part of what I do so I'm pretty good with resumes and application styling. Especially because I know what people are looking for. I wouldn't mind spending 20-30 minutes helping someone get a job. I think everyone deserves at least that much.

Took a shower this morning and half the skin on the top of my right foot (the better of my two burned feet) like.... sloughed off...

Upon investigation I found that part of my sock had melted and was part of the scab material.

I wanted to go back to work today. Was really hoping at least one of my stupid feet would have recovered enough to walk on, so I could drive and use crutches... No go. I had enough course material prepared in advance to cover myself for last week, but there's nothing for my T.A. to present during lectures today. He's called me sounding desperate half a dozen times and it's only 11:28am.... I should have written something over the weekend, but instead I just kept getting drunk and passing out.... I'm not dealing with this correctly.... I'm fucked up and I'm fucking up. I'm fucked up. I'm fucked up in Denmark. I could call around and ask for help, ask for a ride to work, but I feel so embarrassed and insecure asking for help, even when I really, clearly, obviously, need it. Even when and have a legitimate reason.... Blech, why am I so afraid to be weak... I am weak, what's the point of hiding it? Gah... What a stupid egotistical jackass I am....

Took the bus today to hand out my resume to get a new job, no places around at all with job signs. Find a Macs with a wanted sign, go in and 2 indian guys are talking in their language. They reluctantly take my resume even though i know they're going to toss it out anyways (I'm caucasian)fuckin racists, wish I didn't grow up thinking being a snitch is such a bad thing I'd take their "never hire a white person ass" for a run. All the well known stores tell me they do not accept resumes or applications within go to the website. Every other place isn't looking or puts those stupid ass no information ads up on kijiji when they do. Waste of time!

When the hell did everyone just become a fucking piece of paper you email back and forth. Sure you can interview someone with a super resume, but if he's a some nasty slob or a crazy you're wasting time...Fancy resumes don't show that. I don't know how many resumes I used to see thrown out because someone represents them self as a person you would never hire(when you can smell the BO over the counter, that's a good hint). Where's the social interaction with applying for jobs anymore... sigh. I'm 24 and i feel like I'm a retired man because every way I want things to be is old school / outdated... blah I hate technology past the limits of me enjoying anime on crunchyroll...I wish texting would die, typing a paragraph takes longer than talking, stop fucking saying"it's quicker" or "it's just easier" it's not! Why did things go so far so fast >.< I know they have the technology we will see in 20 years from now already done but please save it for another 40 or 50 instead!


Time to make a new email to sign-up to those greedy company websites I want to work for. Fuck scrotus even though I live in Canada! /endrant

@AshRandom.. My only advice for these fuck up times are either keep getting drunk and fucked up knowing it will all violently shit in your face when you least expect it and 10x as hard. Or sober up and figure it out right with a clear mind. Wish I chose option 2 over 1 more than a few times.

Good luck bud keep your head up. Get back to working asap!

Being left without a word is far worse than rejection. I feel like Jet Black and it's time to throw the clock in the water.

Glad this thread is still active.

Ranting? Can do.

I've got a job.

Already I don't have it as bad as some folks here. But there are just some things I can't stand about it anymore. Like, how I have to double-check the attendance sheets everyday to make sure people have signed in. If they haven't, I have to go to their bi-weekly schedules stored on our computer to find out where they are. Then I have to check the leave calendar. Then I have to check a second log book, redundant to the first ones, and write their names in when they call to come in. Or to leave. Or when they return from a visit with clients. Or when they call me. After that, I have to send an e-mail to their supervisors (essentially playing the bad guy/being a barrier against employer-employee conflict) to tell them how their staff isn't behaving. (Staff have to call in before close-of-business to sign out even if their day ends later, making this project not only tedious, but pointless.) So many interruptions (to add to the phone calls I'm already supposed to be taking) is making my getting work done impossible.

Now I have a meeting scheduled with my supervisor because someone called and said they came in.... but I have no record for it. I'm an OA! It's not my job to babysit over 30 people who have undergone varying degrees of college education. I hate being blamed for not keeping track of adults. It isn't my fault they're so unreliable -- why don't the higher ups just fire the folks who are being a problem? Instead, I've been told that this process is "fair" and that the problem didn't originate within our bureau..... So why do I have to deal with it...? I have other (much more important) work to do. You know, arranging client transportation and getting together schedules for appointments with their DOCTORS....

Oh, and did I mention that everything is time-sensitive? As in, I have to get all of that done before 9:15 A.M. I usually don't (my supervisor has been great about that), but then her hands are tied. This means that I have all of the attendance books at my desk, and people are shuffling around in my personal space trying to sign in. I have to resend the original e-mails if someone comes in late (it's annoying if you get one unintentionally, you know), and I'm scolded for not having them done in enough time for supervisors to call their staff members before their morning meetings/breakfasts.

This all started about four months ago. I can't help people the way I used to! My passion for this job is dying -- my original plan was to serve the people there, make life easier for them and help to alleviate some of the negative tension between staff in our department. I'd always heard from members of other sections in our bureau that it was an unhappy place to be, but my job description clearly laid out the details -- I thought I'd be working within my gifts and through my talents! Since I've been repurposed as a time keeper and police officer, I've found myself not even wanting to come in, drifting off mentally during my tasks, and wanting to escape as soon as I walk in the door. My work ethic's faltering.

The whole thing is abysmal in its setup, and ruinous to the morale of all parties involved.

And if they ever found out that I had the audacity/gall/nerve/need to vent, I'd be officially reprimanded, and might just loose my job.

So don't you dare tell anyone!

putting more protocols here at work, researching more regulations, buying stuff to be up to regulation par, and still trucking through today like a boss after last night where I got into an argument with my BF about how I am heavily influenced by Asian stuff and how I keep trying to figure out my life and what I should be doing...

I have a fulltime job, the boss and owners of the company like me because I produce results. I'm aiming after my supervisor's job since he keeps giving me the work he's suppose to be doing and having me do it and tries to take the credit for it when in reality the boss and owners know that it's my work. Waiting for him to leave so I can get his position, get a pay raise, and start paying off debts and taking classes to get my bachelors....and I end up sitting here wondering...am I a horrible person for aiming to get another person's job? am I really that bad?

then I remember I don't give a f*ck today and I will not have bad thoughts, and celebrate while eating chocolate and not getting fat

I also don't like the youtube changes..google use to be so simple, now it's a mix bag of mess. I hate it.

I also noticed that anime noses look weird. They never did before, I don't know anything about animation tech..but it seems to me that noses looked more natural in the older anime, now all the noses look like they are added as an after thought, and they don't look natural at all. It gets on my nerves. These noses, look like just a straight black line and makes the character unattractive, and my eye is always drawn to these noses. I just wish animators would give more consideration to the nose, if that is possible. The nose dose look ok in profile tho.

Or maybe past animators gave more time for the nose and now as a cost cutting measure the nose is just a line..well anyway, it's ugly and ruins anime that otherwise looks fantastic.
