The rumors are true. As you may or may not (or now will now) know. I was off for two days. And during those days I missed so much information.
One, the company I work for is broke. You can buy a stock for just about 20 american dollars. Second, everyone is quitting and getting another job.
Ok, lets take this one step at a time. So how is my work broke? I don’t have the least amount of clue. Last year the company itself with all its subsidiaries was worth 17 billion dollars. But some how, the stocks have dropped almost 30% a month in the past three months. I was unaware of this. And by the looks of it so were all my other coworkers. I don’t know why no one saw it coming since they were being really stingy with money and laying people off, but that’s none of my business.
My work had a “town hall” meeting where the General Manager proceeded to advice everyone that is it better to “look for a job, while you have a job.” I got a text from a coworker last week about this lovely quote that was said to them and since it was out of context I thought he was threatening everyone jobs.
Now going back to work and getting all the sides from the story I can see why he said it. He’seven worried that our site will be shut down. And if you want my honest opinion, it probably should. There are more than 20 claims that come in a week from customers that are missing product or don’t actually get what they asked for. Not to mention the management sucks in every way, shape, and form.
Second thing, almost no one was at work today. I’v never seen my job so empty. I’m thinking that most people called off to go job hunt after being told that the place that they work at might be shutting down soon. I’m glad I have been looking for a new job. But at the same time, nothing is coming in, yet.
Regardless of this place closing or not, I want to leave. If I am still there when it does, I don’t even care, but I don’t want to let that happen.
So excuse me while I continue to devour the internet in search of a better place to work.
Day 2 of job hunting (don’t worry, I’m not going to make this a daily thing I don’t want to bore you to death).
I didn’t go to work today, I felt that it was a good decision for my mental health. I made plans already for tomorrow. I’m going to go see some puppies and have breakfast with one of my friends. But today, I came to Starbucks(my safe place) to edit. I have been here for maybe more than six hours. Not sure if they’ll kick me out but I hope they don’t.
I went on Craigslist to search for some local jobs. That place is freaking scary. Some how I feel like almost all those postings are all fake and are people trying to get your info. They don’t seem legit to me. Does anyone ever get a job from there? Is that site even a thing anymore? I remember growing up and always hearing about Craigslist and how people always found a job on there. Does that even happen anymore? If there’s a new site where the jobs are at, tell me! PLEASE.
Still waiting for my Doordash and Postmate kits to come in the mail so I can start collecting that extra money. I don’t know what else I can do in the mean time. I don’t have many bills which is good, but at the same time I need money to survive. Just going to have to keep looking.
For now I’m going to go eat with a friend. He goes into work a little later and since I’m not working he said he can pass by and we can eat something and chat. Should be nice. We’re trying to plan a mini two day vacation, because I really need one. So might do that.
I feel like I’ve complained enough on here about how much I hate my job. So what’s next?
I was on my way to work today and told my self that’s it, I NEED to look for another job. I know, for any other sane person with a good leveled head, they might have already thought of that idea. Well, guess what? I did too. I tried in the beginning of the year but had no luck.
Maybe I didn’t try hard enough. Or maybe I did and the job market was pretty slow and low. I don’t know, what I do know is that I’m still freaking working at the same place.
Is it that hard to find a job? It might be. I have a friend who used to work at Kmart, they shut down back in December, and he has been looking for a job ever since. Sure he’s picky as heck but still, it’s almost five months, he should have found soemthing.
I don’t think I have a lot of skills or experience. I’m being brutally honest with myself here. But, I do feel I am useful for something, you know what I mean? I’ll do anything for money. Literally, that’s how much I want to leave my job.
No, but jokes aside, I really need to get my crap together and actually work on my resume and my interview answers, to make it seem that I am normal and worthy of working in a social environment with other humans.
I’d really like to be someone’s assistant. I know for some that’s a little humiliating. But for me I’d be down. Well, as long as my boss is not a total A. But beggars can’t be choosers right?
What I was thinking though. I might take the summer off. Quit my job in early summer and look for a job but also enjoy the summer. Maybe my YouTube channel will take off and I’ll be famous? I’m such a millennial, ugh I hate it.
It’s time to take action. It’s time to move. And it’s time to go places.
The best thing about having a car is driving it and having the freedom of going where ever you desire (I mean as long as its in a working condition and you have gas money). The worst thing about it, having to do maintenance on it.
I’m currently at a tire shop. Funny story, I made an appointment for a different tire shop but came to this one because my brain isn’t wired correctly. They couldn’t find my appointment until the nice associate asked me if I was at the correct store. OMG I felt so dumb but she was super nice and made me feel as if it wasn’t even my fault. That’s what I call costumer service. The best. (Americas Tire, is where I went) #notsponsered I just really love them.
The first time I was here they changed my tires very fast and they were super nice.
Now, back to the whole issue with maintenance. I hate it. I absolutely, HATE buying things for my car. I know, I’m weird. Sorry. But, the reason being is that I just paid off my car and I want all that money to myself. Sue me. I’m greedy, what else is knew.
Also, I feel like I treat my car very well so it should do the same to me, you know? But it being an inanimate object that’s going to be a stretch. Any way, my car is ready, so I have to go. Gonna go burn some rubber …lol..jk….no I would never.
We have hit a mile stone! As of today, yes, today. Write it down on your calendar because it is important to me. I have my own domain! *insert cheers here*.
The other day I was wondering through the internet (as one millennial would do) and as I approached my blog, I was not logged into word press. I wanted to see what the reader sees when they click on my blog. Well, what I found was horrendous. I almost had a heart attack. There were so many ads.
Was I promoting what ever it was you were seeing? No. Was I making money off of that? No. That’s why I was shook. I literally fell out of my chair. If there are going to be ads on my page then you bet your little smooth bottom I’m going to be profiting off of those, so when you see them in the future click on them and help me make a living ok? OK. Just kidding, wordpress please don’t sue me.
I have been on this site for a little over 2 years now. This is actually my third year on this site. Don’t you think its time we make some changes? Sure the “don’t fix whats not broke” thing might come in here but change is good. Well some change, like this change. Ok, I’m not making any sense but you get the picture, right?
