Job Hunting Full-Time

I have left my job at Amazon Fulfillment Center to focus on my job search full-time. Working 10.5 hour night shifts at Amazon and searching for jobs, taking phone calls, and going to interviews during the day is simply not feasible. I am too exhausted after work and I would need to sleep all day. I want to get back on day shifts so this puts me back to days and gives me the opportunity to look for work full-time. I am confident I will be back to work very soon. I already have an interview scheduled for Wednesday that I am very excited about.

Watching for Signs

Watching for signs
Keeping in mind
The final destination

Want to be happy
Life not to be crappy
Need some concentration

God will help out
God will come through
For me and also for you

It’s in his hands
The time will fly by
Like clouds passing through the sky

Changes will come
That cannot be undone
Forever wherever we run

Into the sun
Into the night
Please God deliver us from fright

Give us wisdom
And peace of mind
And most of all we should be kind

Let’s make the world
A better place
And not another disgrace

Bad Situation

Do not get me wrong it was a bad situation
Now I must be strong it was a bad situation
So they let me go well at least I’m on vacation
Freedom, peace of mind, and a little meditation

Cannot tolerate abuse
So they must cut me loose
Cannot handle the truth
So end it all what’s the use?

People they come to me
With other opportunities
To be who I want to be
Use my creativity

Positive I will think
Ignoring that I’m on the brink
Change can take some time
Retain my peace of mind

So they let me go it was a bad situation
Rocked me to and fro’ it was a bad situation
Kicked me out the do’ a step in the right direction
Won’t see them no mo’ it was a bad situation

The Meaning of Life. Right and Wrong.

The Meaning of Life. Right and Wrong.

We live in a dream.
An ethereal place.
A mysterious orb.
Floating in space.

Fish in the sea.
Do not notice the water.
Nor do we see.
The space we are under.

We have the capacity.
For right and wrong.
Which hints there is meaning.
In life to belong.

A judgement is coming.
Religion would have us.
Believe at the end.
It will be upon us.

Perhaps there is truth.
To this concept, this vision.
That when we are gone.
It will be unhidden.

The Pool of Life

Sometimes I think that life is just a dream
Some day we’ll wake up and wonder what it meant
All the time we have spent wondering wandering
Where it went..

Do we remain intact after we die
Or go back into the energy pool there to reside
Perhaps to emerge in another incarnation
Or maybe remain ethereal in a spiritual domain
Our consciousness we retain?
Or are we just integrated back into the pool of life?

All the energy in the universe of which we are a part
From whence we came
The physical from the spiritual
The essence of existence.

Isolationism

If there is a doctrine to describe our society, perhaps more than Capitalism it is Isolationism.

We keep apart from each other, keep people at a distance.
We live in houses, homes, and apart-ments.
We come up with any possible excuse to ostracize people and send them off to be apart from us in their own tiny cell.
And then when they return we keep them apart by imposing restrictions on their work options, thereby limiting their financial capabilities and giving people a reason to look down on them and distance themselves from them. People just become extensions of society’s criminal justice system and they probably don’t realize it and you can’t blame them I guess but I find it kind of disgusting.
I feel kind of unique in this. Maybe it’s me and another 15% of society or so who sort of look back at society in disgust.
Why do we come up with every excuse to put distance between each other.
We build this impressive peak for everybody to climb and then the ones who make it to the top look down at all the others from their peak of righteousness and laugh and ridicule the others that were unable to attain their greatness. It’s sadistic.
It has been done intentionally
People have created an Isolationist world,
Instead of an inclusive one.

Synchronicities Bizarre Luck and Coincidences

Synchronicities Bizarre Luck and Coincidences too bizarre to be luck or coincidence.

This is uncanny and hopefully typing it out won’t jinx it.

My car waited to break down until I was somewhere people could help me.

I had my car fixed last Saturday, 6 days ago, today being Friday. I drove all week to the store and such, not a ton of driving but some. Today I drove all the way to the Ignition Interlock place to get my Interlock device reset since they unplugged the battery when they worked on my car and cutting power to the device required my coming in to have the 7 day lockout code taken off.

I pulled in to the workshop area and as I rolled in I shut off the car and coasted to a stop. The lady there asked me to turn the key to turn the power on again and the whole system was dead, no power at all.

Once the technician guy was available he looked at it for me and the battery terminals were stripped. Somehow I drove around with stripped battery terminals all week and never had any problems until I rolled in to the ingnition place and stopped. It could have happened on the way over or any of the other times I’ve driven to the store or whatnot since Saturday but I made it all the way in to these peoples’ shop and then it died.

They were able to drive me to Farm and Fleet to get a new battery and the technician guy for the interlock place installed the battery for me which was excellent especially because I hate getting dirty.

So they helped me out and I bought a battery for $68 dollars that I can’t really afford but had it happened a couple blocks earlier I would have been stuck on the street and had to get a tow not knowing the battery was the issue.

To me that’s pretty uncanny luck so I’m calling it a Synchronicity which I believe Jung coined the term having to do with uncanny coincidences and luck of that nature. A little too strange to be pure luck or not but just seems so, who knows?

There is not enough trust and goodwill in human society especially among the political class.

There is not enough trust and goodwill in human society especially among the political class.
Why do we need to carefully account for each penny made, earned, spent, exchanged? At some point does it not become arbitrary? A person who makes millions of dollars and we keep track of every penny seems arbitrary. Do they deserve exactly $10 million or maybe 8 million 3 hundred 72 thousand? It seems arbitrary. Especially when the numbers get that big does it even matter any more?
Why are some people so worried about food stamps and welfare?
I think we need a fundamental shift in priorities. I mean it may be possible to make the current system work but we could also try a different approach.
A certain level of subsistence guaranteed. Food, housing of some sort, clothing, etc.
Why? For one thing it is much more sustainable for somebody to stay at home and be less active driving around, eating out for lunch, shopping etc. than it is to have everybody working constantly everyday. So while people may be jealous which is why they are so intent on forcing everybody to work because they must hate their jobs and they want everybody to suffer not just themselves unless you have somehow “earned” this life of luxury or someone in your family has “earned” it for you.
I mean I think people should just relax. Don’t worry about what everybody else is doing so much. So what if some people are working a job everyday. I always felt like when I was unemployed, riding my bike around, cooking modest meals at home, I was doing society a favor really. That’s an incredibly green lifestyle. I wasn’t driving to work everyday and using the amount of resources that a working life requires. I was living resourcefully on as little as possible which is commendable I think and perhaps we should encourage or reward such behavior instead of ridiculing and discouraging it. This would be a start to combating global warming and excessive use of energy and resources.
It’s just that I think we should challenge the selfish, conceited, norms of society. That mean-spirited assertion that you must work for what you have which implies that most people aren’t working or don’t want to work which I think is false. People want to be productive members of society and are when given the chance. Also a lot of things people do are very productive and important but they get no recompense for it. One such thing would be cleaning a street corner say. Many would be super inclined to help out wherever needed if there was some way to get recompense for it. If there was a general subsistence living allotment people might be inclined to do things of that nature just out of the goodness of their hearts and to be members of society which is providing them the livelihood and the flexibility to do such things in their spare time. Give people a little freedom and time to do some good and people may be surprised instead now where we try to make life as difficult as possible for the poor and we have all these accusations hurled at them from certain segments of the political elite.

Now you are ready to bake! Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 to 40 minutes. You can shut the oven off near the end and just use the residual heat as the oven will stay warm and the contents of the Pyrex bowl will stay warm as well.

You can mash the contents to create a sort of mashed potato dish that has rice, broccoli, and whatever else you added. I forgot but I could have added chopped onions, hot pepper, green pepper, and so forth. Season to taste.

My Career Path and Goals

My Career Path

I have been temping for most of my adult career, perhaps the last 15 to 20 years for the most part. A friend of mine introduced me to the concept in my early 20s and I checked it out and never left the industry apart from brief hiatuses. Temping is convenient and allows you to build experience while offering the opportunity to gain experience with an employer and potentially to be hired on as a regular employee. Temping is not always the best way to go but it can be a quick and positive way to land a rewarding job quickly and gain some needed experience while building a career path.

I have a technical diploma in web design from matc ( milwaukee area technical college, December 2012. )

I have a lot of experience in accounting departments. I worked with Daymark Real Estate doing data entry, making check requests, preparing bank deposits, and other general administrative assistant type work. I also worked at Brookfield Woods Apartments in North Carolina which is an apartment complex they owned. I worked in the office taking phone calls, showing apartments, collecting rent payments, making bank deposits, entering data into Tenant Pro 6 real estate software, and so forth.

I like working on web design in my free time. It gives me a hobby to challenge my mind and continue to grow and development my skills with technology and my general intellect skills through the challenge it provides. I would like to get to a point where I felt relatively proficient with it but I would not say I am there just yet.

Presently I am searching for jobs in my normal career path of administrative, accounting, and/or purchasing roles. I am hoping to hear back about a job in purchasing as I type this. I guess I forgot to mention that I also worked with CarlisleIT in the purchasing department. Working in purchasing utilizes all of my skills from accounting and customer service to data entry and general software skills. I feel like I have been specially prepared for this type of endeavor with the path my career has taken and hope to land a job in this field or similar.
