Have a good one, Social Media~

Hello all. So I couldn’t wait until the 31st to finally reveal this. And no, I’m not “coming out”. It’s nothing like that.

I’m deleting my Fb, and A Large majority of my social network accounts on Jan 1st.

Part of me doing this is a self-imposed challenge: see how long I can make it without common social media before I go insane before making a new account, for lack of better wording.

But a bigger part of it…. is just me needing a break from almost All social media. Now I say ‘almost all’ when in reality, I’m deleting 90% of my social network presence. The only one I will be keeping is a private Facebook with not much to look at. It’ll only be there to run my Facebook page, “Writing Times“, so other than that, I won’t be seeking many pages to like or groups to join or people to add. Heck, my profile won’t even be updated. Just a blank slate. Even Then… I may delete that account to make it a proper departure from social media.

Besides all that… It’s a temporary thing. One year at most. Then I may be back in limited capacities, probably a Twitter and a Facebook, who knows. But… It’ll be fun to try.

So uh… Yeah, I’m deleting the main three: Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus (whatever is left of the latter). I already deleted my Twitch account (however much they’re willing to get rid of) and in the process with Mixer (Twitch TV’s opposite). Instagram will be gone at the end of the month, once I complete #365daysOfSelfies (making a Photos album of the collection of pics; hmu for a link if you want?), and just to restart this service, I’m deleting my Discord and making a new one so hmu if you have that. Outside of those… I think that’s that.

If I don’t see ya or if you don’t read or visit my blog(s), have a good life, lol. The best way I can say that. To everyone else, I hope we can keep in touch some other means, be it text or call or Discord once that’s ready. But uh… Until then, folks~

Too many ‘Wants’

I don’t know what I want anymore, to be honest.

I want friends…but then, I just want to be left alone.

I want to live on my own…but then, I fear my family going crazy without me.

I want to lose weight…but I lack the motivation, effort, and way of getting it done.

I want a girlfriend…but without the talking in person, and embarrassing myself.

I want a different vehicle than I have now…

I want  to stop being last-minute at everything…

I want to go out and hang with like-minded folk…

I want to stop being a lazy piece of schmitt…

I want to feel less of a [false] burden on people…

I want to stop being a mumble-y mess all the time…

I want to…

…sometimes, just not be me…
…and that’s not even half the list…

   Until then, folks~

Frustration

(A tweet I was filling out as a thread last night, 6/9/18)

‘I am CONSTANTLY getting frustrated with myself with not uploading any blog entries, or at least any short stories I think up. I think being lax since unemployment did that to me; to that, -1 to my previous employer.

‘But to sorta counter that fact is the fact that I actually Have stuff typed up. But imo (and a bit of perfectionist mentality), they aren’t ready for the limelight. Maybe it’s because I’m being a bit too personal, or I just like to be too detailed…but it’s killing me.

‘Idk if this can be remedied by working again, kicking my lazy gaming ass into gear, or just waiting until I feel up-to blogging again. It’s crazy cause in high school & some years after, I was churning out entries left & right, all entries being, IMO, mediocre at best.

‘(Blog was since deleted btw). But nowadays…I’m sorta just sitting here – or standing – typing up a storm then I just…Stop. Oftentimes, to look up a word or link something or put a picture in place. But it then lead to a block, and I put the entry away for later editing.

‘And I really don’t know why that is. I make SOOOO so so much progress within an hour or two, only to have that progress sitting for what feels like eternity, before I either decide to retread old posts, or just begin a new one altogether.

‘It’s an endless cycle that gets annoying after awhile. I won’t go across how many posts I currently have sitting in limbo, but…let’s just say that a majority of posts dealt with my adventures of working at a candy factory. I started in April last year, and fired in January…

‘Idk if there is a certain Some thing I can do to….get out of this stump, but I feel like Any thing is worth trying at this point.
I am a writer & I’d love to get these ideas out of my head. At the same time, I’d like to rant about life’s happening on the side.’

Chronicles of a [Candy] Factory Worker #8: Andddddddd Downtime. 🙄

Before I knew it, Downtime happened.
It seems whoever made the orders schedule underestimated how bad we wanted Probiotics over & done with, and wanted to be on to the next thing. (And it might suck if the next order ends up being Sugar Free…at least for the Cook [deck] person). So now, we get to spend the night cleaning everything twice over…
Or so I thought. We end up starting up prematurely, much to the Lead’s dismay (he has a child-like attitude problem). So at the very least, we set everything up for Day side to continue. And surprise, the next order turned out to be ‘Multivitamins’, for men! Hooray! Now I get to unwillingly get a smell of an ingredient stuck in my throat for the majority of tomorrow night! Besides that, I will be doing drops as well, so more practice on that front. Sucks that the Lead won’t be able to observe my developing skills, though.
Also, does anyone else ever want to say something to someone, but don’t remember until after you leave or clock out? That was me today, and hoping it doesn’t cause any trouble for leaving it out. Because this is a job where you don’t want to leave ANY thing out of mentioning, especially if it slightly refers to our Downtime. I don’t believe it’s a huge problem, but we’ll see tomorrow night, eh?

For the remainder of this post, I figured I could explain how the factory’s lunch & breaks work. Briefly.

So we get two breaks and a lunch, just like every other job. Not much different except for the times we take each. First break happens around 8-9:30p depending on the job. Lunch is generally after the 6-hour mark, which I thought was a thing not to do when you were full-time. Alas even as I type this, I’m currently on my lunch at 1:25a; since there are so many of us to account for, 12-2a is usually good enough to get everyone in & out. (A secret: I was told Lunch might happen later on some days & a second break could be skipped cause of it. Had that happen about three weeks ago, when we were severely short-handed). And last break is generally between 3-5a. Me personally, I prefer closer to five, if at all possible. That way, I’m under two hours away from leaving 😉
We were recently told that if we went over 17 minutes for break, our pay would be docked for the whole fifteen, which is kinda lame. (Though I’ll admit to abusing the breaks all too often… Keep it on the down low 🤐). Lunch, as far as I know, is exempt from the rule. So uh, you know… [don’t] abuse it.

Chronicles of a [Candy] Factory Worker #7: The Probiotic Post 

Second night Mixing for Kit 1, and it’s not as bad as the first night. For one, I’m not as tired as I was Monday (though I still do if I sit for too long). And two, I’m measuring & writing down everything this time. So it keeps me busy. A lot busier.

Mandatory for Probiotics

We became short-handed after 10pm, though. One of the Chris’ end up leaving for some reason, assuming he felt sick from Taco Bell BUT I’m jumping to conclusions without knowing. (Update at 10:30p: he wasn’t sick, but a family emergency was the reason). So the Lead took over his spot with Flavor. Regardless, things are still as slow as Monday. Downstairs frequently went down, no pun intended, and drops were rather far apart from one another. To top it off, we were also confirmed to be doing Probiotics the whole week, striking out the Lead’s claim that I wouldn’t need to worry about Flavor this time…

But you know, could just punch me in the gut anyway. How ‘bout dah?
Speaking of, I feel myself coming down with something…literally and figuratively…

It’s not a huge problem. Though the new paperwork we were told to fill out for Flavor is EXPANSIVE so if anything, I might run into a bit of lost faces of confusion there. But we will see when we get to that point, Saturday night.

Also, I’ve taken a liking to wearing this shirt on the days that I get paid, a way to signify that ‘hayyy! Dat money’s hittin’ ma account after work! Let’s go!’ To me, anyway. To others, it’s a bird head on a human suited-up body with stacks of cash behind it. But to a certain fighting game community, it’s a meme/inside joke. Multiple meanings behind it, which is why I love wearing it on those paydays.

Here’s hoping hire-ups don’t catch on to the wrong meaning…

Until then~

Although…that girl…hmm…
