Yesterday's whining did give me enough impetus to fire a few rounds into the abyss, by which I mean I submitted my resume to a few more job postings that were forwarded to my mailbox. I have had one response from some kind of recruiter person to inform me that I would be good in insurance sales, and this hasn't happened in a few months so I appear to be back on the right track as far as putting my name out there. I recall a time back in the early 2000s that I went in for an interview of some kind
The world did not end today. No, it wasn't supposed to.
I did not win the lottery today. I did not quit my retail job today. I did not get any new job leads today, nor any phone calls or mails in response to any applications. I did not decide that I had enough with stagnation or being non complacent in life and give up things which I vaguely refer to as bullshit, lest I even spell the terms out on this post.
I tell myself that I worked today. That it's just one more
Retail work news. One of the cartmen who has threatened to quit on repeated occasions since his first week of work, which occurred several months ago, has finally followed through on his threat and officially quit - for real this time. The blow up happened last night, and apparently the issue was that he refused to get off of his phone when someone from immediate management demanded him to end the call. There was also some issue about a command given to him to have "all of the lot cleaned up"
One bad run negates a hundred good ones in my memory. I sit here and look at the time I spent and wonder why I bother, but then I need to recall that there's plenty of times that I've enjoyed these things, so the balance is in fact intact. But the times when it instills anger within me are difficult to let go. It still is.
No, I haven't done much of anything else, thanks for asking. I will change that by submitting more applications into the abyss now.
Yesterday was the first time that I had logged onto the USA Jobs website since sometime in 2010. I had forgotten that IRS applications tend to take around a half hour to complete, just for reading and responding to the various situational questions that are asked.
In today's visit to my parent's house I have come to discover that, in addition to the kitchen wall and floor tile work and cabinet replacement, they are redoing the tile in an adjacent room and replacing the dishwasher
I wonder what is the point at which I should start worrying that I never even get a response from all of these job applications.
For today's song session, I think I had the table positioned back farther than what I had been doing the last few times. I can't think of any other good reason why it seemed like I was perceiving more of the note display today than in the last few days. I'm rather surprised that Madrugada feels like it has extra notes here when it in truth does not.
I hope I get at least half as many calls in these upcoming three days off as I seem to get during the days that I'm at my bullshit retail job. On that subject, a full day of use with the broomstick, as mentioned yesterday, does seem to have helped in respect of the pain felt in my hands and fingers. I'll have to be careful that this new method doesn't put too much strain on my back.
On the subject of work: A response came to a time off request that I had put in about a month ago.
Played through this, and in general, my thoughts match most others here.
The game is good. Played through once, 100%. I enjoyed exploring and picking up things. Most of the level design is very good. Like others have said, if you play through this again, you're doing it for no reason but you want to go through it again. Not necessarily a bad thing, but its against the norm these days.
Story is kind of pathetic. The NPCs are pretty generic and obvious. It didn't bug
File this under the "Why didn't I think of this months ago, you god damned retard?" tab. I've struggled with how to deal with pushing carts by hand for my entire day, week in and week out, and have tried various positions and holds to not put as much strain on my fingers and wrists. In particular, the approach of a full line from a corral to the vestibule takes the most effort, and I have become acclimated to lifting the first cart by the bottom enough to brace my body against the handlebar
Today's truncated post is brought to you by Daylight Savings Time, or the incoming lack thereof.
I really never had a record for The Theme from Flo-Jack? OK. I had a good feeling with Saynoara Superstar, and surprised that I still didn't score as well as I felt. Platonic XXX has flunked me out at least twice now, maybe even more since the last clear? I climbed back up to 72% at the end but just ran out of gas. Bad scratch chords almost knocked me out of Take On Me - now that would
At 230PM earlier today I was scheduled to work with another cart pusher who has been with the company for more than a decade, but whom I haven't seen much at all in the previous months as he was consistently scheduled for the evening shifts. There were a total of four people scheduled today, and upon seeing me he asks if that is true, which I verify and hand him my note of today's schedule for him to see for himself. He looks it over, says "OK", folds it into his pocket, then immediately
I get called by Mother soon after waking up because she cannot figure out how to scan a document using the all-in-one printer that they have purchased some time ago. For whatever reason, she was under the impression that the only way that a document can be scanned is for it to be instantly emailed, rather than saved to a machine. I show up, and lo-and-behold, the process works this time when it never did before.
To be fair, the machine that the printer is hooked up to is a decade
Job applications to sort through.
Bad news on the door step. I couldn't take one more step.
Had a huge workout with the opening pair of songs that made things seem rather sedate overall afterward. It's looking like my clear of Fun was a fluke of a lucky chart, or at least today's wasn't so friendly.
Lunar Beat. Extra Mode. Double play. "@" denotes Random chart modifier. All songs are of highest difficulty type unless specified.
The snowblower was put to good use today. I didn't use it in two years, but it was used a single time so far, so I would have been pretty dismayed if it hadn't worked. The electric starter definitely helps that out, as I probably would have dislocated my arm if I were to use the pull string crank.
All the more reason that I'm happy for that much is that my mother in law's car needs a repair of a support spring, one of which already broke on a different side of the car. Bye bye $800.
A bullshit local holiday combined with the threat of a high amount of incoming snowfall led more people to come to the store today than they did yesterday, which is definitely not how Mondays are supposed to play out in comparison to Sundays. A coworker called off which meant that I was alone until 230PM, and that sealed the deal.
There's a few people who play IIDX and would howl in pain at looking at today's song selection. I thought I had an entry for Ska A Go Go but more than likely
