Endeavour, The Reader
I tend to be a slow writer. I am a lover of history, culture, & music.

Ironically, we spend freetime complaining on this thread.

I haven't fed any orphans to the best of my knowledge, but I do have a habit of....no I'm being self contradictory aren't I....
I do what I do. I enjoy what I do, but sometimes I stress a little. I don't sit around thinking I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders, but I try darn hard to carry it for some reason.
Someone recently asked me if I think people can change, yeah I do. It's probably not going to be easy to change. But commitment is what gets you there (Yikes, probably a big tangent...). Then, I started talking about how responsibility is freedom.
I'm going to stop since I forgot where I was taking this...

My thing is that I'll gladly do the work, but I'm always getting the impression that I'm not doing it well enough (even though people will tell me I'm doing a good job). It's just the setup of things that get at me. As to free time, as long as I can use it for other people, I'll have it. Otherwise put me to work for crying out loud.

This. I remember trying to train a kid who had the audacity to complain to a cashier about his feet hurting.

Has anyone else been having a really busy life as of late? I don't know, I just want so much to be able to slow down, and yet I spend most of my days running around (even literally at times), doing one thing and trying to get another done.
I've got a job that mostly consists of me scurrying around getting carts, helping customers, and keeping the store clean. I go home and more often than not, I'm stuck with chores, and cooking when I'm not on the closing shift. I spend most of my free time in front of a screen, and it's been a while since I actually picked up a book to read it. I can't find the push to get a driver's license and sometimes I don't even feel like I'm giving my girlfriend enough time (she's doesn't seem to have a problem)...
Honestly, I'm not going to sit here and pull the whole "woe-is-me" act, but it's just way too easy to focus on and/or perceive negatives.
Sorry for the weird rant...
Job Searches on 7/17/2018 3:32:08 PM
I really wish more job applications were a walk-in sort of thing these days. The closest I know of is Publix, but you basically stand at an in-store computer, filling out a digital application (I find it extremely difficult to stand still for that). And at least on moving around on my feet, I can get a better idea of what I'm looking for than I can on a computer...

They're great on pizza.

Alligator's pretty good in my opinion. I also like catfish, but some people don't. They refer to it as a "dirty" fish.

I seriously found myself tempted to buy a can of sardines last night, though that can't really be the worst one can eat, can it (I've never had them)? I've had chicken gizzards and enjoyed them, I fulfilled a dare in Nicaragua & ate an eye from a roasted fish (and enjoyed it). Of course I doubt those could be considered all that odd.
Solipsism on 12/8/2017 1:04:08 AM
If solipsism were true, and the only real person in existence happened to be a member of this site:
- Who do you think it would most likely be?
- Why do you think they would imagine you?
- What could be their reasoning for the weird comments?
