Driving around with my friend.. this is a story of my life! :) ENJOYYYYY
This seems like a common question that one might find themselves asking more often then they should. I don’t know about you but I live in America. This is suppose to be a place for opportunity, isn’t this why people from all over come to live here to live out the “American Dream”? Whelp, it is all a big fat lie.
The one thing that stumps me the most are employers and companies assuring people when they apply that there is equal opportunity with no discrimination. That is a lie. We all know this and it shouldn’t be that hard to get hours at a job or even receive decent pay.
Here is the biggest problem with companies and why people aren’t hanging around as long as they would like. Wasting more time on training then actually people working. Who decided it was a good idea to have a set up that asks a million fake questions that have really nothing to do with work or having the chance of it happening less then 10%. How is that kind of judgment off of questions make or break who gets a chance to work.
The BIGGEST issue that personally gets under my skin is the possibility or racism and it is ludacris that it is still happening. People who are interviewing people go off not experience but looks and if they personally like you. I recently applied for a warehouse where it stated no experience needed will train anybody and looking for people who are willing to work second shift. Sounds simple enough doesn’t it?
I went to a job fair they had (brand new building) applied three times got called for an interview and went and a month later or so. I called a few times a week, no one returned my calls, until someone finally did and they said what I already predicted they would and we are not going through will hiring you. So I asked why and she said she was not sure.
What a bunch of bull right.
Two main things that should automatically get ANYONE a chance as a job is two important questions
1. Are you available to work 2nd shift. (Or whatever the shift is). Yes
2. Do you have reliable transportation? Yes.
Those are the only two things that should over rule everything. And the thing that kills me is people that I know who are being hired by these companies. People who bullshit there way with answering the questions right to whoever is hiring them. But these are the SAME people who have never had a job, cant hold a job, and do not posses a license or a car.
WHILE the people who can hold a job and people who want to work and take their jobs seriously and want to succeed, who have reliable transportation and have a car are the ones who never get a chance.
GOOD JOB AMERICA
and good job to the ones who make poor judgment decisions on who is a hire the wrong people based off looks and personal opinions.
Based on a true story that happened to me at work one Friday evening. Sad but true we all know at least one person who is like this .. we need to get the message out and put an end to this nonsense..lol enjoy folks
It’s been a while since I actually went on a “shopping spree” but he
It all started when I was in 6th grade when I first discovered this amazing language. I was never the type to want to fit in and follow what everyone else did. I never had the desire to learn Spanish.. who cares if it is the second language in the US.. not my problem.
French. That is something that has always been calling out to me. It wanted me just as much as I wanted it. Ever since Madeline. Anyone remember that little French girl? I do.
I remember that I had a disc for my computer and I learned something’s from here but that left me only wanting more. I have no idea why I wanted to learn it so bad and today I am still slowly learning the reasons behind it.
I want to be there… in France I want to learn what they know I want to speak with their accents.. I want to live that life. Seems so wonderful ..but looks are deceiving. I am not dumb I am pretty sure it’s not what it seems like but it is just one of those things that I feel like I need to do a place where I need to see and a language that I need to speak, need to communicate with.
Is it the language of love?
I don’t remember…
So last year sometime.. the summer to be a bit more exact, I went online and checked out Rosetta Stone. It is expensive so I was a little taken back by actually wanting to see out my “future” but I bit the bullet and downloaded it right away and made a few 80 dollar payments.. (what a killer that was) and now that I have had it for so long I haven’t even opened it up or even looked at it in months. So with that said I must indeed get back on track with what I been dreaming of doing as a child.
I am going to use the same excuse that anyone would use about anything and that there is just not enough time in the day… Sometimes that can be true but if I actually want to follow through and succeed in another language I have to make time for it.
Let’s see where I am at with that in about a month..
The is nothing like being side tracked. I think it happens to the best of us. :) but any who I am loving technology right now. It has really been something that I am able to relate to and to be apart of day after day. Since I am currently in school I find that it is rather important to learn about the things that interest you in all aspects. It is so funny just thinking back to high school when nothing was interesting enough or even important enough to want to study about. That was the thing because I was not able to pick my classes and pick the path that I wanted to go on and wanted to be apart of. The world we live in is full of opportunities and everyone truly has a place in this world. I am getting a little side tracked on this piece here but moral of my story. Find something you enjoy and run with it.
Life is definitely what you make out of it…
Where you want to live how you want to live… there are nothing but endless possibilities and choices to choose from. Life can be hard at times and things can go wrong but most of the time it is expected to run into some problems a few times in life before you actually get the strength or opportunity to live life they way you always planned.. A dream come true..
Lately, for me, the only thing that I have my eyes set on is California. I am not quite sure why but I want to be in a place that has all the perks.. Yea there is New York.. I would love to live there besides it is only a state away but I want to get away from all the harsh winters and I want to live a little and experience new things. I want the world itself. I never been to the west coast so wanting to move there right off the bat seems a little strange… Not really everyone has dreams and goals they want to live out in their lives.
Actually, my best bet is to move there for career wise. Social Media. That’s where it all seems to happen. I am not much of a city living person I much rather be in the suburbs somewhere where you get more bang for your buck for sure. I think that’s more important to me. Nothing like having a nice size house and a garage. A garage for sure is something that I NEED, I do not know how many times I dug my car out this year along but I can tell you it has been way to many to even count.
I am giving myself a few years maybe 3 or 4 hopefully by then I will land a decent job before school is done for me .. that be another dream just waiting to happen. :)
