Two friends were complaining to one another because one was comparing how both their hours are the same, so the other shouldn’t complain about how sore work was. As I viewed both situations and thought about them, I thought how much of their autobiographical view was forced on the other individual. You’d probe this person so much and think you were right all the damn time, because you’ve been there and done that. Although we’ve all been there, it’s different for everyone because you don’t know what their mindset is like. Don’t probe or feel like you’ve been in that individuals shoes, because you haven’t.
The 9-5 shift concept is different for everyone. If someone is complaining about a certain situation, listen to them, instead of forcing your autobiography on them. If you’re going to probe them and play 21 questions, you shouldn’t be helping them out on that situation in the first place. Seek first to understand in order to be understood.
What a majority of my co-workers don’t know, is that I’m working at Nintendo to learn more about their distribution centers and how they work. After I’ve worked at a majority of the departments, I might plan on quitting and then learn how leaders operate @ the Starbucks shop, since the leaders at Nintendo so far haven’t shown much. They’re way too laid back and co- workers sort of talk crap about each other haha.
What I’ve seen so far is that this center doesn’t really have a mission statement for their work force. And I know this because most of the people I say hi to, give me a grudged look, as if they hate working there. I’ve asked around, but majority of them don’t know what I’m talking about, which is sort of bad haha. Luckily, because Nintendo is a brand, all the workers work hard regardless whether there is one or not.
298: do you like to dress up or dress down for school
I really liked dressing up in suits every week in high school. I don’t know, but it made me feel good to look sharp haha. Now, I do it sort of on a daily basis since I do a part- time business on the side.
Before the habit of reading books came into my life, I was a complete slack off in high school and college. I was never a good student and I was always consuming my study time with activities in watching tv and playing video games. I’d most often make fun of teachers if the other kids were in on it too. I had one realization by the time senior year came around. I didn’t have enough credits, so I was somehow determined to take credit retrieval classes. Fortunately, I was able to graduate on time and go off to college.
The same terrible habits came into play when I went to college. It was a bad two years for me, and then I stopped. I found a program for that reason, but I gradually stopped doing that also.
Then I joined a net work marketing company and one of their 10 habits was reading 10 pgs a day. Those first 3 or so months, I didn’t really do much. And one day, I decided to take up on reading 10 pgs a day. Eventually, it became 10, 20, 50, and usually up to 70 pgs a day.
Every book I’ve read so far made me realize what little courage, wisdom, and judgement I had. I’d cry so much during or after finishing the book, but it made my mentality stronger for the company I worked with. And I still somewhat cry after re reading some of my books. They all have this special effect on me, and they all make me stronger. I never knew reading would have such a compound effect on me. And most of these books are written by entrepreneurs. Their life stories and telling their readers how they got to where they are today is truly inspiring.
295: things you’re looking forward to next week -month
I feel as though things will change drastically next month. I don’t know, but I ultimately have this good feeling that the events happening next month will change me for ever. I can’t say what it is, but it’s just one of those realization processes I’ll be going through.
The way everyone reacts to it is what inspires me. Instead of protesting like everyone is on Wall Street, I’m trying my best to change myself first. Instead of oppressing against this matter, I’m still going to be studying and going to every financial seminar/workshop I can find. Even if it sucks my wallet dry now and then, it will run in the long term.
My sister was always compared to I and other kids. My parents would say:
"Why don’t you go to college like Stephen?"
"Why are you so lazy around the house? Even I do more work then you"
"Society hates lesbians"
"Why don’t you dress appropriately like other kids?"
It’s phrases such as these that will slowly make kids, teenagers, and adults alike feel invaluable. It is the most inhumane thing you can ever do to someones spirit, especially when the parent will drastically care more about others opinions, rather then their own child’s opinion of themselves. And you know what that makes a child? It’s makes them feel like a commodity, like they’re useless until used. The lowest thing you can ever possibly do is put someones opinion first before your own childs.
Not only will the child feel invaluable, but the trust that the child used to have for the parents before being compared, will slowly start to diminish.
Well, for me, sometimes what makes a class is the instructor and their teaching methods. My intro to anth instructor reads off the book during lecture and its just so dry. You see nothing but waves of student heads. (meaning everyone bobs there head)
Haha, that could be boring, but what you do after class is what counts the most. That’s mostly what I’m getting at. I know most kids will whine to other kids about their teacher after class hours, and they usually get nothing done due to that consumption of time.
I had a realization of that as well, realizing that if we were able to cope with those kinds of teachers they really showed us what the real world was like.. -_- damn studying social geography makes me realizes all the shit
I’ve read plenty of books on this subject. It’s crazy, right? They talk about it in all the financial books that I read also haha.
I remember how all my friends and I used to always blame our teacher for the way they taught us. We thought it was a terrible way of teaching kids, so we felt like we were failing because of how many assignments they dropped on us, or the amount of study time we were allowed before the next mid term.
In reality, my friends and I were the ones to blame. Us talking about how bad our teachers were, consumed a majority of our studying time. Talking about our teachers so called inability to teach, turned off our proactive responses to those statements. While we were gossiping, there was always that one kid taking the proactive approach and actually looking forward to it as if it were a challenge. We called those kids kiss-ups, but they weren’t. They were just really good at minding their own business, and thats what set them apart from my friends and I. We centered our problems around the teacher, while the straight A student centered the problems as a challenge.
In conclusion, you will always be your solution, whether you think it or not.
I was really hesitant about posting this, but I didn’t realize most of what I done til now. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, cause we’ve all made and learn from mistakes, but I feel as though writing and posting this will lift off some form of burden.
To you, I want to say that none of this was your fault. I made all these silly excuses that sounded logical just to get out of a situation that I, myself, stirred up with you first. I remember how you gave me a choice between two bracelets, and I chose the purple one, and that’s where my first mistake flowed into. I should of stopped us there and claimed to be friends first. I shouldn’t have done that to you. Because of that, you wrote all these posts that were directed at me, and that was my fault. I got mad at what you wrote, but wasn’t able to look through your lense of perception due to my lack of understanding. If you know who you are and you’re reading this, please don’t like, message, or reply to this post. I’ll just take advantage of whatever sympathy you have for my understanding and take it for granted. I’d rather make then first move on continuing a friendship, rather then you taking initiative all the time. Trust me, I know how I am when people are sympathetic for me. It will just boost my ego into thinking that I’m always right, and I don’t like to be right. It’s wrong to be right all the time. No one deserves to be right and that includes me.
I think this might be one of my preferences in a guy. It would be great if my significants other’s thigh was as big as mines… or bigger. All I know is that there better be some meat on them thighs. The bigger, the louder the slap… LOL
Some of you have been following me since the day I made this account, and some of you since midway. Many of you who have followed me get a daily update on my life and how it affects me over all as a person. I’ve changed so much in the previous 6 months, but it’s the greatest change I’ve ever been through, and you guys will be able to see more of that along the way. I know it sounds sort of cliche, but if any of you ever has a problem, just talk to me about it, through anon or not. I know how to read and be concerned about a situation really well. I give it time basically.
Anyways, I just want to say thanks to most of you who have sticked with me this far already. All of you have seen the mistakes I’ve made with my life, so expect more from here on out. Isn’t it silly how humans try their hardest not to make mistakes in their life, when thats how we progress? I’m not always going to be right, but I will always do trial and error with the way I work at things. I hope you guys will in some way, try your best to learn from mistakes instead of avoiding them.
