Topics I've Started

High stress job problem

06 July 2014 - 03:14 AM

Ok, as some might know, I, about a year ago got my first "Big Boy" job. I originally pursued and took the job for all the right reasons, aka looking to bring some financial stability to my life and a job with a defined career path going forward. I've hated the location but I thought taking the job was worth it.

I kinda knew when I took the job that it was going to be a lousy job in some ways, it already was notorious for having a high burnout rate, for example I'm currently on my 3rd set of co-worker over this last year, not counting management.

right now it's looking like, in part due to high staff turnover they may be looking to not offer a job advancement opertunity this year that was promised when I was originally hired(a big reason I took the job). Currently, I'm facing the tough choice of: do I want to tough it out for another year? or go ahead and start looking for another job in a less stressful situation and a better location?

Draw back would be that I'm pretty sure sticking anywhere for under 2 years is frowned upon in this field of work. And next year they would probably let me have the position outright instead of having to apply and go through a review board for it(same thing happened to someone last year, so it's happened before).

I'm honestly leaning more towards leaving but there is a part of me wondering if leaving this job before I get my goals finished would end up being a terrible idea in the long run. Right now I'm kinda damned if I do and damned if I don't.

At what point did you fall in love with Music?

05 June 2014 - 12:08 PM

I'm sitting here on my day off cleaning the house while listening to "Another day, Another Time: the music behind inside Llewyn Davis"  which a showtime music doc about a concert with various artists that played for the sound track of the movie, really great stuff if you enjoy folk/bluegrass music, which is by far my favorite genre of music.


My love for Folk and Bluegrass music is something that came very late to me, In middle school to high school I listened to what ever was popular, but never really enjoyed music, and honestly for a while I never thought there was any genre of music I truly enjoyed to listen too. and about 5 years ago while traveling with some friends of mine in Australia one of them was big into Bluegrass and I started to listen to his stuff and have been hooked ever since.


Oddly enough the very first bluegrass song I ever enjoyed was a cover of Metallica's Unforgiven by Iron Horse



so what's your favorite genre and when did you fall in love with it?

Anyone else watch Vice?

26 April 2014 - 10:50 PM

I finally got HBO for Game of Thrones so I could watch the episodes live, and now I've been watching a lot of Vice now, great show and fascinating stuff. I honestly feel like I know more about whats going on in the world from their weekly episodes then you would know from a month of watching any of the 24 hour news channels.




If you haven't watched this weeks Episode check it out, it's on the Legalization of Pot in America and issues North Korean Defectors have assimilating into South Korea, It's excellent.

So I stole a phone, buy it off me anyway?(craigslist ad)

21 April 2014 - 01:02 AM

Ok, so whoever posted this craigslist add has some balls, not only is he basically admiting that he's trying to sell a stolen iPhone 5 he's straight up advertising the fact.




For those that dont know a "Bad ESN" means that the phone has been either flagged as lost or stolen by the Service provider, having the addition "iCloud locked" means that the phone was locked by it's original owner(after theft), considering that the original owner could undo any of these you can guarantee it's not the seller.
