And today is my birthday! Yay! Happy birthday to me!
I didn’t actually write this post on my birthday itself, that would be stupid. The time of writing this is the 7th, a day before my birthday.
But eh, it’s been a while since my last update post hasn’t it. Didn’t even feel that long. And well, it’s been a while since my last anything. Hope all of you enjoyed your time without my presence, because your happy times won’t last for much longer, heheh.
On a more serious note, this is obviously an update post and I need to update everyone on what has happened so far and why exactly I have disappeared…or would I?
Let’s just say, I’ve been pretty busy with quite a lot of things in real life. Yes. That is absolutely the reason why I haven’t been posting and not procrastination. Yes.
Now excuse me while I go back to my gam-I mean writing the next post. Yes.
Alright. Truth be told, I have yet to even touch the Fall season. I might sometime soon, but there’s enough things on my back burner as it is. First impressions are going to be important, but they are going to be so late I wonder if anyone will even bother to read them at that point. And probably a preview to let people know what I think are interesting and what are not.
I’ve just fallen behind incredibly at this point, both in terms of anime and post writing. I do have a lot of ideas, but I just can’t seem to find the time and drive to write it.
And yea, that’s about it for this status update. I really don’t have much to say, nor do I have excuses. I can only say sorry if you have been looking forward to my content. Although, I won’t know whether you enjoy my posts. Only you know.
Now, before I end this post off, I have to say that what dragged me to write this post was Moya and Yomu’s collaboration on a song, in which she called me out for having a birthday. She is wrong on the date but, she’s close enough. And I figured since you all know the rough time range anyways, I might as well come out about it.
And of course, I have to thank everyone for wishing me a happy birthday. I don’t exactly celebrate or ….care about birthdays much for that matter, but thank you. I received your thoughts and that’s good enough.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the part time jobs I’ve did so far, it is this: capitalist society is bad.
While do we, the bottom feeding scrubs, get more hate than those sitting at the top of the pyramid and driving us like slaves? More often than not, I get customers unleashing their fury on me, with me being unable to do anything even though I really want to help. Granted, it’s the minority but geez, I just feel anger bottling up inside.
One of the things that ticks me off majorly despite my really gentle temper would be getting blame for something I am not responsible for. It just makes me pissed. And I acumulated that anger throughout the part time jobs I’ve done.
Luckily, there’s also the fair share of grateful people who thank me for my help. Seeing others become happy makes me happy too, and I would love to do a flying kiss to them if the society allowed such a thing and if that doesn’t look weird.
That aside, back to the topic at hand. I simply cannot comprehend why despite earning the least in the work heirachy, we get the biggest dumps taken on our heads.
So please, on behalf of all people who work like I do, don’t take out your anger on us. Most of the time, nothing changes even if you do. And furthermore, we are often the people least qualified to receive your fury.

*Yup, just wrote this because I wanted to. Sorry if there’s any incoherency and if this post seems bad.
DISCLAIMER BEFORE WE START: HORRIBLE IS VERY SUBJECTIVE AND AS SUCH THIS COULD BE VERY FIRST WORLD PROBLEM LIKE TO SOME PEOPLE. I simply wanted to share this story for your laughs(you are all horrible) and gather some internet points(whew, I love those!) This happened quite a long time ago so I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the recount, but I did write down the major points at the time so most of what I said shouldn’t be too inaccurate.
With the disclaimer aside, let’s get right into the recount.
So, not a post with any real content again. This one wouldn’t have pictures or gifs or anything of that sort either. It will simply be me rambling a bit and letting out some feelings.
So, I’m pretty much going through one of the toughest phases in my life right now. Several things have gone wrong, a lot of thinking and consideration needs to be done, and most importantly, I probably have to make decisions that will change the rest of my life. Which is actually one of the reasons why I’ve not been posting, other than general laziness and procrastination as well as playing games and watching anime.
Well, my feelings are pretty much all over the place right now and I kinda have to think more deeply about certain matters…and I also have to make those decisions. Can’t run away from them.
If only I got more rest and downtime before all these.
I guess life will always throw shit at you, and the best you can do is to come up with ways to block it or minimise the smear the shit hits you with.
That was a disgusting analogy. I don’t know why I wrote that.
Well, I don’t know why I’m writing this post to completely unrelated people, especially since I don’t like disclosing personal information anyways so this post is vague as heck.
Hopefully my life gets back in order and stuffs. I’ll probably still be able to post stuffs but yea, please don’t kill me if I suddenly disappear for some periods of time.
This was a very random and very weird post, don’t mind me.
So, just finished 2nd shift, currently 24hrs without sleep and counting and I’m writing this post before I even eat breakfast. Well, not that it will ever faze me.
So, the experience this time wasn’t bad either. However, this was vastly different from the late night shift, being the early morning shift. Well, the biggest difference is the amount of people.
So. Many. People.
Have you ever seen a Zerg Rush? (Click on the link for a mini-game that fully demonstrates a Zerg Rush!)
Because it was literally Zerg Rush in real life, and I’m the one getting overwhelmed.
I’m getting probably 5 or more people asking me things at the same time almost 24/7 throughout the shift, and running back and forth.
My spine started hating me so much it doesn’t feel like being a part of my body anymore and aches every time I cough a little bit. I felt as if I turned into an old man without being one.
In the end, I could only handle so much at once and even if done sequentially I was bound to miss some people. I hope I have a billion mouths to talk to everyone at the same time but that isn’t happening.
I did do my best though, and I guess I was pretty happy with the results. Learnt a couple more things, was able to deal with other people even better, etc. The standard takeaway from a job experience. And now, I’ve gotta sleep and prepare for the last shift in a while, which actually isn’t that far away–12 hours in fact.
Hopefully my spine stops trying to migrate out of my body and I can somehow get enough sleep (if I can sleep at all).
Well, I went to get a part-time job doing a Crowd Marshal, and it was quite the experience indeed, being my first ever time working.
Take note that I’m rushing out this post at 2am, after I’ve finished working, going in again at 5am so won’t have much time so I’ll try to get out as much thoughts as possible.
So the job itself seems pretty simple: simply direct people towards where they want to go. Well, anything will look simple at first glance but this one is actually simple. Well, for me at least, since it just means helping people, and I’ll glad it do it.
The problem though, comes with time. You are basically stuck there standing for the entire duration, and in this case, it was 4 straight hours. My legs went from pain to sore to numb to sore and pain again, and I really felt like chopping them off sometimes. It was pretty bad and by the time it ended my legs were so used to the abuse I didn’t even feel any relief when I sat down finally. It’s as if my legs decided to retaliate by not giving me pleasure when it should be given.
Well, there’s another minor problem. Minor for me, and it depends on the person. You see, when you do a Crowd Marshal, and you sometimes don’t know things that are not in your job scope, people are not gonna be happy. They don’t care that it’s not your job, they expect you to be an encyclopedia standing there to be read.
Anyways, you are going to get quite a bit of curses and complaints with time. And well, there was one that was caused by a certain company’s incompetence and out of my control, but it was directed at me anyways. I’m just a part-timer, give me a break ;.;
In the end though, it was really fun helping out people and hearing their thanks. Especially the people who even gave thumbs ups along with heartfelt thanks, you guys are seriously the best. It’s really a pleasure to help other people for me, and coupled with even more joy from their thanks, the job became pretty fun.
It was a great experience, and I will probably take more part-time jobs to gain more experiences working.
Well, off to another shift.
