Hey guys how's it going? It could be better for me. I was dismissed from my job on Tuesday. It wasn't for misconduct or anything that can harm my former employer's reputation.
It was because my Data Entry skills weren't up to expectations. I did all that I could, but I guess that wasn't enough to satisfy.
Remember a while back that I mentioned something about poor training? Yeah, that's exactly the reason why this all happened.
If that wasn't enough, they were pushing me to work weekends after 3 months of Data Entry so that I can run the pharmacy alone. Everywhere else was fine, but I guess they weren't satisfied with my Data Entry skills. Poor training produces poor productivity.
But there is some good news; I won't be wasting as much time looking for a new job, one that won't produce as much stress on myself.
But the real surprise was that my former boss didn't want to dismiss me. When I said my goodbyes, everyone was upset that I got dismissed. It wasn't an easy thing, but he had no choice.
Until I get a new job, it's back to square one. I hate being unemployed. It's fine for a while, but it gets really boring really fast.
That's all for now. Just make sure to keep an eye out for an upcoming live stream (which will be very soon).
Hey guys, what's up? Not too much on my end. Just the same ole, same ole.
I managed to figure out how to get live streams going, and got done with my first live stream (sort of).
For the record, the live streams will be on my YouTube channel all the same. Feel free to drop a line while I play. It won't be too frequent I'll be doing this, so you'll have to keep an eye out for a live stream.
Also for the record, I'll try to edit out any unnecessary footage if I can so the video will look better.
I'll be posting the video after I figure out how to edit the stream.
That's all for now. I hope you guys are doing well and I'll see you next time.
Hey guys, what's up? Not a whole lot on my end. Just the same ole, same ole.
To those who've been watching my videos on YouTube, I thank you very much. And now I'm ready to look into the next thing; live streaming.
I'm looking into it as we speak and researching on how to do it. As of this point, it looks a little confusing, but that's why researching was invented. I'll be looking into it further into the days ahead.
Just like my videos, what I'll be streaming is totally secret. It would ruin the fun if I told you guys, wouldn't it? Now when I'll be doing it is a completely different story. As soon as I have a better understanding, I'll start streaming.
That's all for now. When I get a better understanding of this whole thing, I'll let you guys know.
Hey guys, Happy New Year!
Some of you have been wondering where I have been. The answer is simple; I've been very busy, that's all. This also explains why I haven't posted anything in December, but then again, there wasn't much to talk about.
Good news is I still like my job. Bad news is I'm ready to find a new job. As much as I like being a pharmacy technician, I'm starting to get the real picture of how stressful it is. That's not to say another job isn't stress free, but rather it's too much for me to handle.
I'm at odds with a co worker because she doesn't appreciate what I'm doing. If that wasn't enough, I wasn't given complete training either. I ask for a restart, but she said no. What kind of person says no to someone who wants to start over? I can understand that it's time consuming, but that doesn't make it right.
I'm trying my best (and believe me, that's all that matters), but for whatever reason, she decided to give me attitude. This in itself can create a hostile work environment, and no employee deserves it. I can also understand tough love, but that doesn't make it right for someone to create such an environment, and it can rub off onto my other co-workers as well.
If I were to redo 2017, I'd look for a job in videography (or something similar to that nature). It's something I'm more familiar with and fits in much better with my college degree.
That's all for now guys. Here's to 2018!
Hey guys, what's up? Not much here. Just enjoying the day off from work.
While this isn't my first holiday off from work, it is, however, my first Thanksgiving that I didn't have to work today. It's a good feeling as well. I won't have to worry about crowds of people when it comes to the deals.
While on topic, it makes you wonder why people don't use any sense when it comes to Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I may have mentioned this a few years back, but for those who don't want to browse through the archives, I'll make it short and sweet.
It is true that the holidays are the busiest times for shoppers, but why on God's green earth should retailers have to let their employees suffer while other enjoy the time off with families? To get the jump start on the report of sales? Okay, acceptable. But that doesn't make it right for those who have to work miss out on quality time with their families. And Walmart is notorious for this.
I also have worked my fair share of Thanksgivings in the past, and made a vow to never shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday ever again!
Speaking of the shopping, why is it that people waste their time and gas to get something on sale, only to return it either the next day or about a week later, only to find out it was a Thanksgiving deal only? Ugh! It begs the question: what were they thinking?
Fortunately for me, I won't have to deal with that mess anymore.
That's all for now, and Happy Thanksgiving to those reading this article.
Hey guys, how's it going? Things are going pretty good on my end. I've just been busy, that's all.
There's some good news; unlike the last two years, there will be a Halloween video this year. What will be about? Well, I won't say because if I did, then I wouldn't be blogging about this, now would I?
All I can say is that I'll be reviewing a classic horror game. I can also expect this video to be released on Halloween.
That's all for now.
Hey guys, what's up? Quite a bit has happened to me over the last several weeks. For starters, I got a new SUV; a 2017 Ford Edge. All I can really say is that I love it. And if anyone asks if there's going to be a video about it, well you're out of luck. I don't have enough knowledge in cars to do a video review. Also I've only had it for two weeks.
Other than that, there's really not much else going on. Just work, save money, pay loans, repeat. I know it sounds dull, but that's life, and everyone has to cross that point sooner than later.
That's all for now.
Hey guys, what's up? Things have been going pretty smoothly on my end. I still like my new job, I'm (slowly) still making more videos, and one of my favorite games of all time got released on Steam, but remastered. Yep, it's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
When the first game came out in 2007, I was speechless. The game took a huge risk in straying away from World War II and went modern. To me, that was a smart move on the developer's part. I still have the original disc and the collector's art book.
Now that the remastered game got released by itself, I was thinking "about time", but at the same time I was also thinking "has the damage been done?"
I can safely say yes, the damage has been done, and I got a few good reasons to say so.
First, the game shouldn't have been bundled with Infinite Warfare to begin with. While I get the message that doing this would've driven people away from Infinite Warfare, at the same time, people who didn't want to play Infinite Warfare still had to pay $80 for two games. In my opinion, it should've been released as two separate titles from the start (on all platforms mind you), OR have Modern Warfare Remastered be free via a voucher.
Speaking of free, which brings me to point number two; Modern Warfare Remastered also would've benefited those who already have the original on their Steam account, kind of like how Bioshock had a remaster released for free to those who already owned either (or both) of the two Bioshock games.
Next on the list is a $39.99 price tag. Seriously?? NO extra multiplayer maps included for free?! Okay, another dumb move! I've played plenty of games that require a season pass, but most of those games gave me more bang for my buck! And some included downloadable content for free and no season pass necessary (Shadow Warrior 2 is a great example of this). The least Activision should've done is release the extra maps as part of the deal (and reduce the price tag by about $20).
From what I've heard, the multiplayer portion was terrible. The servers weren't optimized properly to allow smooth gameplay, and the servers themselves are empty or very few running. The original had better multiplayer.
Ironically, the remaster has bots in multiplayer, so that's good, I guess.
So what's my advice? If you want to play Modern Warfare, stick with the original. It's $20 cheaper and actually a lot of fun to play. If you want to play a good multiplayer game, play Counter Strike (any one of them will do, but I prefer Source or Global Offensive).
Hey guys, how's it going? Well, after spending a few weeks sick, I'm back to 100% and feeling fine.
What was really unusual is how I got sick in the first place. I thought it was a common cold at first, but a week later, I wasn't feeling better. I just wanted to take proper cold medicine and let this pass on, but it turns out it wasn't the cold.
So another week later, I had to go to the doctor (okay, made to go), and he told me that I had infected bronchial tubes. Joyous. He gave me antibiotics for a week, and the next day, I felt much better.
Here's to hoping that I don't get this again. Oh, and the video delay is over. It's posted.
Hey guys, how's it going? It's been a little over a month since I started my new job, and all I can say is that I'm still enjoying it. But that's not what this post is about.
A few days ago, I got struck with a bad cold. Unlike before, my throat got so sore, my voice seemed altered. I've had bad sore throats before, but this was the worst. It felt like I got kicked in the larynx. If that wasn't enough, it's really painful to swallow food. That's how bad it is.
While I do have my stuff ready for my next video, shooting will have to wait until my throat feels better because I don't want to have to speak and irritate my vocal chords.
That's pretty much it for now. I'll let you guys know when my next video is up.
