Work @ MindSay



 

   
I work with lovely people

My workplace convinces me Jon Stewart was right, Bullshit is everyywherrrre… whatever it is I think I see, becomes a tootsie rooo…..ummm   BullShit!!! to me.  !!!!  arghhh  (i’m dating myself when I bring up that tune?  I loved that commercial for some reason lol)  



anyways every corner of that office, everyone/thing is infused with a varying amount of bullshit.  



 



Something must be in the water cooler, because I find it very odd when I look around, how others can know the criminal activity going on, but remain cool with everything.  i guess like how the bully on the playground gets away with everything..   stay on the bully’s team. Because the other side is always losing.  The business world is so corrupt and so wrong.



 



I’m the idiot that cares and gets stressed out.  I’m a idealistic fool to want justice for all.  I’ll describe more later when I’m not so worked up about it.  when u get to the point your stomach starts to rumble from hunger, that’s when you know it’s time to wake up when you haven’t even gone to bed yet. 



 



random thoughts for the day: 



baby deer are one of the sweetest creatures on earth





 



 



 



 


 
 
   
 

Workplace Drama?

I was warned when I started work, to “watch out for” a specific co-worker. She wasn’t managerial or anything, just that she had a bad attitude and snaps on people, fairly often. And then I would be asked every so often how she was treating me, had she snapped at me, stuff like that. Especially being the new person, I REALLY don’t want to get involved in work politics.



 



The truth is, she has been very nice to me, for the most part. She’s a little rough around the edges, but she helps me anytime I need help, is always nice, strikes up conversations with me, and tells me not to be sorry when I apologize for not knowing something, or doing something wrong, or needing her help. I dunno, that seems very progressive, to me.



 



I have seen that she has some issues with some of the people in our department. I just...honestly, don’t get involved, as much as possible.



 



Today, she was asked to show me how to use a tool and to sign me into it so I could learn by using it. Makes sense, she seemed fine with it, even welcoming when I suggested that we wait until after my break because I was scheduled to go for break in about 5 minutes or so. But at one point, she called our department head, saying she had to talk to them about something. I asked casually if everything was okay and she basically told me that, no, it wasn’t, and that she has her own job to do and she shouldn’t be expected to babysit others in the department. Almost right away, she turned around and was like “Not about you! I’m not talking about you, don’t worry. You’re new, you need help, you’re learning.”



 



So I’m wondering if that was a slip up, or am I just experiencing more of these politics in my department? It isn’t really bugging me, per se, I’m just...I guess curious? If that makes sense? When I went on my break I REALLY wanted to tweet “Am I in trouble, or did I just experience some workplace drama?” but then figured that would be kinda...attention grabbing, I guess?



 



I’ve prided myself on getting along with everybody. I hope that can continue without a problem. 


 
 
 

   
Little Lost Puzzle Piece

I feel like I’m fitting in pretty well at work, and people seem to think I’m a lot younger than I am (someone today guessed 19...dang). That gives me hope that maybe, just MAYBE, I will fit in at college, if I keep my age under wraps until people get to know me? I have to admit, I’m pretty self conscious about being what’s considered a “mature student” and being a few/several years older than most of the other students that will be living in campus. 



 



Fitting in has always been important to me because I was bullied so much when I was younger (especially in elementary school and junior high). Highschool wasn’t AS bad but I definitely noticed that I had a constant concern and awkwardness about being unliked or not fitting in. I think that’s why I didn’t do a lot of partying or anything in University, because I was so worried that I didn’t fit in, etc. My mom has it in her head that I’m going to live the Hollywood version of college life this time around, and seems to want me to. I think, I mean, I know that she wants what’s best for me, and for me to feel fulfilled but it feels like she will be pushing me towards socialization, and I’m not entirely sure that I’m comfortable with that notion, or at least, not in a major way. 


 
 
   
 

Working in the Pit of Despair...

And so it is...

 

I could name at least 50 major corporations that send material to the Pit of Despair to be tested. If they only had knowledge of just how the place was run, maybe they would think twice about doing so...

 

A 50% annual turnover rate is something most companies would find unacceptable. Everyone from PhDs to machinists eventually bailout, which in turn leads to constant training of new employees and the errors that they make during this period. Part of this is due to the fact that the average employee whether they are hourly or salary work on average 55 hours per week, six days per week. Other factors include, but are not limited to, the fact that the person who runs the place is a sociopath who delights in verbally abusing all those who surround him, the maximum number of vacations day that one can earn is three weeks, no sick days, a large raise is 3% per year, etc., etc...

 

And yet I go on for work is all I know…

 

Though eventually work will destroy me for I know this deep within my soul…

 

That is all…

 

Carry on…

 
 
 

   
Time for an Update 2015
It has been way too long guys. Instead of me apologizing all the time, let me give you want you really want. A DAMN UPDATE!

Remember that last entry I had? All about foreign language? I passed all of my French classes woohoo! I still do not understand to this day on how an English major needs to have three semesters worth of foreign language. I'm most likely forgetting about about it unforunately, but with everything going on in France as of late, I've actually been catching things here and there which is a surprise. Just that closer to graduating.

Speaking of graduating. I never thought I see those words again or to be using it again. If everything works out guys, I'll be graduating by the end of this summer. I still can't believe I'm so close to graduating! There are a few problems. I still have to deal with school. I'm already so far ahead but I need to focus on what's happening now. I think this is the reason why I've come back to write this, to process my thoughts a bit more thoroughly. Senior seminar is kind of killing me. I feel like all my ideas are stupid and not academic enough, even the professor has been shootingthem down so I'm a bit scared on that class. Scared enough that I feel like I'm not understanding but too afraid to ask, I feel like a lot of stuff is just catching up and that I haven't learned anything at all. Prayers are seriously needed so I can get myself together.

Another big event here is I had to get my wisdom tooth pulled out. It ended up getting a chip aka giant hole in the tooth. And for me to be a poor ass college student wasn't helping. I paid out of pocket to get it removed. To tell you the truth, it's probably been some time, like ten years since I got my teach looked at. Hopefully with graduating that I can gt a job right after words. That's what's been running through my mind. I'm so close to finishing school and that's WITHOUT ANY DEBT. However things are starting to catch up to me, I'm so close guys so close to making it.

I've applied for a lot of Turner Broadcasting internships. Another reason I'm scared because it's been so long since I've been out of the real world work force. I've completely revamped my resume which I needed, it had been nearly four years since it was updated. It looks good but there's so much more I need to do. My brother found something for me and it's full time, but I'm not sure if I can take the job now though. IT's so frustrating having to see that. I mean making that job mine and turning it into a internship for my intern class would be great. I would walk into a full time job right as I take my final class (Internship), after that I would already be working in my job. Another set of prayers are needed for this as well.

Also isn't Valentine's day is coming up? I know everyone is either doesn't believe in it or is reminded by single awareness day. I just want to remind everyone that I'm sure there's someone you love and that loves you back. Spend it with a friend, a sibling, a pet, and etc. There's more to things in way than just being in a dating relationship. Speaking of relationships. Mine is still going okay in a way, but of course there's a catch. As Many of you may or may not know, my girlfriendis Korean. Unfortunately the Korean society is coming up a lot in this. You know te whole "1,000 years of pure blood" or carrying on the name. It's to where she can get excommunicated from her whole family. It's so sad, I mean to have my skin color cause so many problems. I've been worried about her and I'm not here to break up anyone's family. I'm not sure what to do and sometimes I worry about myself around other girls. You all know I love to court omen, ever since I can remember as a little kid, I love love love females. I've been staying out of trouble but I worry about being a typical guy. -bangs head-

Hopefully you enjoyed the update, let me know what's going on with you. I have so any people to catch up on.
