So this is my first official post on Dreamwidth! Hey all!

I'm gonna try to remember I have this account, but to be completely honest, I suck at updating my LJ these days (and its my main journal!)

So yeah.

A little about me: I'm 25, married, living in Michigan at the moment (where, believe it or not, we a suffering an alarming *lack* of snow and cold. I mean, its still cold, but not nearly as cold as it should be. And it's Dec. 26th. So yeah.

Um, I'm in several fandoms, mostly XMFC, Sherlock BBC, Doctor Who and a few others. I mostly hang about on the sidelines, but I've been known to contribute a fic or two.

So yes anyway! Uh, glad to be here, I suppose, and I hope you had a great Holiday, and that you have a happy New Year! =)

[Error: unknown template qotd]Ok, so LJ ate my post. I don't know why. So here we go--another crack at it.

I know most people are saying hunger or poverty or lack of healthcare. But I really think those are symptoms of an even bigger underlying problem: Greed. Hard to grasp, right? But think about it--Greed is a huge problem in the world. It runs rampant. Greed is (one of) the reasons there have been so many revolutions, so much public outcry around the world. Because those who have, have way too much, and those that don't, are tired of it.

If Greed were to cease to exist, then the question of a living wage wouldn't be a question, it'd be a basic given right. The question of healthcare wouldn't be a question at all--it'd be a basic given right. The question of "Is there enough food in the world" wouldn't be a problem because access to food would be a basic, given right. People would only take what they need.

I'm sure you've seen those ads, here in the United States, about how we throw out about 1/4 or 1/3 or something of our food because it spoils. Could you imagine a world where nothing spoiled, because everyone had enough to eat, and no one let anything go to waste? Mind boggling, right? But if Greed didn't exist, then probably the food shortage problem wouldn't exist.

Can you see where I'm going with this?

But how do we eliminate greed? Its such an elusive thing to combat, right? Even harder than poverty, etc, because its something that each person in the world has to battle. I think the solution is in our children. I know it's been overused, but the phrase "The Children Are Our Future" has never been more true.

I think we (society, the world as a whole) need to take a good long look at how we raise our kids. I don't know how it is in other countries, but given the problems around the world, I think maybe its the same as in the US. More and more I see parents who are afraid to discipline their children. So afraid that instead of demanding that their kids act live civil human beings who care about their fellow man, parents have resorted to asking. And I'm not talking about a parent having to ask a teen or a grown adult to--well, act their age.

I'm talking about parents who sit on the playground and watch their kids start to exhibit bullying, selfish, greedy behavior. Or even at home, between siblings. Instead of nipping that behavior in the bud with a stern and direct action, the kids get half assed questions and requests to "Remember that we don't do that, Jason? Jessica, you know we share in this house?" Asking their kids to behave.Instead of saying to little Jason or Jessica "If you do not stop that behavior this instant, we are leaving/you aren't getting anything today/you're grounded."

Its my firm belief that this misguided attempt to be the friend early on (and I've noticed that this seems to run rampant more among married/commited "mother" figures than it does commited/married "father" figures. Or single parents.) with their children, society has instead created generation after generation of generally greedy people.

This time of year, people give a lot of lip service to doing charitable things. "Peace on earth, Goodwill toward man."

I'm sorry, but I think its a farce. Notice that big corporations who make billions of dollars--they have to have a tax incentive to donate any money. Hell--even your normal every day citizen can get a tax right off for donating a bag of clothes to the goodwill/salvation army. Or donating a car to Mother Wattles (or other Donate Your Clunker Here organizations). And most people take it. I know I do!

We've even had to (here, in the United States) insist that, as a graduation requirement, children are required to do a certain number of community service hours. Why is that required? Why isn't that something that kids are happy to do? Why do we have to force them to it? Seriously?

And I'm not saying that I'm perfect! Lord knows I have done my share of selfish and greedy things. I'm not proud of it. But I am owning up to it. Which I think is the first step to change. And should I ever have/adopt/end up the guardian of/end up a role model for any children, ever (like my nieces and nephews, for example), I will try my best to instill a basic respect for every human being.

Its the least I can do--and I plan to do more.

I'm going to be alone this christmas--I plan on volunteering at a soup kitchen, if I can. And that's *still* the least I can do. But its a step, right? I'm not so delusional that I think that my opinion is gonna be the start of a huge revolution, or anything. I don't think that my realization that I'm a greedy person, and my need to change that, is going to suddenly rid the world of greed, ok?

But you asked. "If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be?" And I answered.

Because I really truly believe that if Greed were to cease to exist, the other problems that ultimately stem from it--poverty, hunger, rampant disease, lack of healthcare, etc-- would begin to disappear as well.

Interview~

Nov. 4th, 2011 10:43 am
canyatuima: (Default)
So, the collections job? Yeaaaah, not the job that i thought it was. At all. So now I am wondering how the hell I got the interview in the first place.

ANYWAY. This is the website for the company. http://www.turnerenterprisesinc.com
Aaaand, IDK. They will be calling me today and leaving a message about when my second interview will be.

This is kinda reminding me of the Bankers Life insurance bit all over again.

They start you at entry level, then train you up to supervisory, then assistant management, then you're given a client and you run their *advertising campaign*

Don't get me wrong, that sounds kind of awesome. BUT I wasn't allowed to ask questions until the second interview.

Like I said--Bankers Life all over again. UNLIKE Bankers life though, when I search, I don't find anything *bad* about Turner Enterprises, Inc.

But its so new--I can't tell if the building I went to today is new, OR if they just started in May of this year.

Advise please? Check the site, do some of your own googling, let me know what you think.

ETA: ...changed my search parameters, found what I was looking for. *sigh* dammit. According to complaints, the second interview is an all day job shadow...and they supposedly use your car. HAHA NO.

I suppose I could always go along and make sure, it was only two complaints, but um...idk, I don' t have the gas to waste on driving around for someone. *LE SIGH* Ah well.

Soooo....

Hi! So there's stuff going on in my life! Here's the first one:

Hubby and I are talking about searching Out of State for jobs. North Dakota is hiring for, like, fucking thousands of jobs. They need people.

I'm thinking that applying for a few jobs can't hurt, right? But hubby and I are talking it over first, before we do anything concrete.

To live in the land of Fargo. LOL. I'd have to get a different car--no *way* the Camino could make that trip. No way.

We'll be looking in other states out that way as well. Anything to get a decent paying job, right? We can't *really* afford to move, but I suppose if we do it like Jackie and Phil did (Phil got a job out there, scoped out an apartment, saved money, and when they had enough save, Jackie moved out to join him) we could probably wing it. Just drive everything out there. Or just sell all the big shit and use that money to move and get new (as in, *lighter*) furniture.

I'm not all too crazy about that idea tbh. But its an idea.

I mean, this is still in the discussion stage. Any suggestions on where *not* to look?

At this point, weather doesn't really freak me out to much. I can adapt. It will SUCK, depending on the climate, but I could adapt.

And hell, if any  job I get has benefits (one of them I'm looking at in ND does--hell, MOST if not ALL of them are FULL TIME w/ Benefits.) then I could afford the *doctors* visit to help adapt, if needed.

I've also applied for jobs here in Michigan (always) and I got a call back for two of them so far! One of them sounds like a scam (door to door sales of *natural gas*? Yeaaaaaah  no.) and the other sounds like a solid job (credit collections. =/ not a happy job, but damn, its full time and has benefits). The Credit collections job wants me for an interview asap. I will be calling later today. Yay. Wish  me luck!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Justin's meds are being wonky (he thinks). I've noticed he's a touch moodier than normal, but the doctor said that would happen from time to time. The meds don't stop him from having ups and downs, just how severe they get. This is still nowhere near the level of bad it used to get. Here's hoping the meds aren't starting to fizz out. That would suck. XP

Aaaand...that's it, really. Yay.

I AM NOT A BABYSITTING. I AM NOT TRAINED TO DEAL WITH YOUR SNOT NOSED BRATS, AND I SURE AS FUCK AM NOT GETTING PAID ENOUGH TO WATCH YOUR LITTLE FUCK HEADS EVEN IF I WERE *SUPPOSED* TO DO IT.

Look. I get it. You don't want your parenting questioned or whatever, blah blah. And really, I suppose I'd be annoyed too.

BUT.

When you come to a public library and you bring your children, There. Are. RULES.

OUR BIGGEST ONE. POSTED RIGHT BEFORE YOU ENTER THE GOD DAMNED KIDS SECTION:

Children under 13 to be with parent or guardian AT ALL TIMES.

THAT MEANS:

They must be *at least* within line of sight, and they MUST be able to hear you without you yelling.
We prefer it if they are sitting at the table/computer with you, quietly reading. Or if you are on the computer, and they are on the literacy computers, that is also fine.

We're a bit more lenient about the 13 rule, because they can generally say "OH GOD NO A STRANGER" and run away. Generally. And it'd be hard to miss a teen being taken forcefully in the middle of a library.

THAT DOES NOT MEAN:

You can bring your 13 y/o and leave them in charge of your brood and go off doing whatever you feel like.

Sit in front of a computer/at a table on your laptop/read a book and completely ignore your child as they cry, scream, wail, act like banshee's or TEAR APART THE BOOK SHELVES BECAUSE THEY ARE BORED.

IF YOU IGNORE THESE RULES, WE WILL BE FORCED TO ESCORT YOU OUT. DON'T LIKE IT?

DON'T FUCKING COME TO THE LIBRARY. XPPPPPPP

DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!!!!!!!!

"@Sam: Even the "middle class" is an illusion now. Who has it pretty good, besides the rich?

Under Clinton's administration, my parents were making about 90k/yr and we had a lovely house, two cars, and only dad worked. Fast Forward through the Bush years to now, My dad is working two jobs--his normal 9 to 5er AND his own computer/network business.

They *still* make only about 90K a year. My father has not gotten a raise in over 10 years--and yet prices for EVERYTHING is going up.

BTW--That 90k/yr is including a 10k/yr (BEFORE taxes) pension.

Before Obama reinstated certain Military benefits, my parents--who *have* health insurance through the 9 to 5 job-- got *buried* under medical debt. They are living paycheck to paycheck, juggling their bills, struggling to make ends meat. My Sister who is out of HS and has a cosmetology degree lives with them, and HELPS THEM when they can't buy food. Or other supplies. Or even just *gas* for their cars, to get back and forth where they need to go. She's even had to buy my *younger* sister clothing and school supplies.

And there is no help for them. There have been several times when they almost lost their house.

Thank god my younger sister is *brilliant* because the only way she can afford to go to college is through scholarships. My parents make too much for her to receive much financial aid, and their credit has been RUINED by their medical crisis', so Student Loans will be damn near impossible.

And hell, lets take a look at the Poverty Level, shall we? My husband and I live with a roomie, to save money on rent, etc. We split our bills. He is unable to find a job (we live in Michigan), and has been out of a job for nearly 3 years now. The job market is a catch-22. Sure, they're hiring, but they don't hire anyone who has such a huge gap in their resume. He's applied for *everything*, and no luck. We do NOT receive Unemployment Insurance Benefits.

I make less than 10K a year. We have no health insurance. We cannot afford to send me BACK to college to finish (I'm only 25, had to drop out b/c Financial Aid fell through) We can barely afford the gas it takes me to get TO AND FROM WORK. We are not frivolous spenders. We grow our fresh vegetables on our back balcony during the summer.

My husband has taken to volunteering to have SOMETHING TO DO, because no one will hire him. No one.

We do not have any children. We could not afford them.

So how the hell is this "having it pretty good"? If by pretty good you mean I can protest against my government for not following through on their promises (Job creation? WHAT job creation?) without being arrested? Well then yes, I do have it pretty good.

But when I have to choose whether to pay for my husbands *medication* or buy food? In a nation that prides itself on its equality, that should not be happening. The 1% should not be in control of all the wealth.

And yes, Wall Street isn't the ENTIRE problem. But they sure as hell contributed to it. AIG, anyone? Remember those bailouts? I sure do."

"A correction, my apologies, the quote should be "most people live well"

But my question still stands, how is THAT living well? It's not."

My reaction to THIS comment by Sam Soto:

It's not that there are no jobs it's that they don't want to do those jobs. Must be nice to camp out for "months" and not have to work! What happened to pull up your bootstraps and work for a living. You can make a living in the US maybe not rich but most people live well.

Ooooh, I think my boss is upset with me.... ^^;

I sent her time off request on Aug 5th and never got a reply back. She then went on vacation. I debated waiting until she got back to double check or sending an e-mail to TM(supervisor or whatever) and/or PK.

I decided to err on the side of caution and send an e-mail to TM. She said she'd have to double check. I told her about sending KM (my boss) an e-mail about it on Aug 5th, and receiving no reply.

She said she'd "look into it"

that was on...idk, the 15th?

Its now the 24th.

On the 22nd, KM sent me an e-mail that read like this:

Hello-

I heard there was an issue with this request. Miriam--it's been on my calendar since I got your email. As previously discussed, I don't usually respond to schedule requests unless there is an issue. You can check your sent mail, and if I've opened it and didn't reply, you're good to go!

TM & PK--this email is in my Aides schedule request folder on groupwise, which you both have access to. Miriam is also marked off on the scheduling calendar, which I left right by my phone, as I said I would.

Thanks,

K

I called off today( BEFORE I opened that e-mail) Because I just *hurt*. Everwhere. thanks to the garage swamp out yesterday.

What do I do? Now that she's brought it up, I get the vague impression that we *have* had a conversation about requests, and how she doesn't respond unless there's an issue.

I'm "sick" (i.e--in so much pain it hurts to moooove, even to move my arms, seriously, oh god ow) so do I send her (and PK and TM) an e-mail going "Oh, y'know, I totally forgot about that convo, you're right, my bad, no big deal, sorry I brought it up?" RIGHT AWAY-- Or do I wait until I see her in person?

I've got a pretty good feeling that my boss doesn't like me *anyway*, and this is a black mark against me. What would be the best way to handle this? My asking about the request wasn't meant to cause HER any issues--but I was worried, b/c on that day I have a doc. appointment, and I wasn't able to schedule around a day I work, and its either I go THAT day, or I make another appointment a MONTH from then.

Characters/Pairings: Lucius Malfoy, Abraxas Malfoy, Tom Riddle
Genre: Angst, dark.
Beta: None, any mistakes are my own.
Rating/Warnings: Spousal abuse, child abuse--mildly graphic, I guess? No sexual assault. May be triggery.

Author’s Note: Ok, so, this went a totally different direction than what I was going for at first. No, really. I tried writing him a happy go lucky childhood--and I couldn’t. So instead, you get this. As such--feedback is greatly appreciated. =)

Also, on the ages--Tom Riddle was born in 1926. Lucius Malfoy was born in 1954. So I have no idea how they met in Cannon, cause they sure as hell didn’t go to school together. I didn’t think Tom taught there, but I could be wrong. Anyway, enjoy!

The Master (Doctor Who)--because he's literally insane, and he's determined to rule the world no matter what, and he's just so damn *snarky* its brilliant. And just...yeah. I can't even describe why his evil is so good, but it really really is. I mean--it takes a twisted mind to create a paradox machine so you can destroy mankind with Future!Mankind. It really really does.

But he's so damn brilliant, I don't care.

So. Apparently hubby has given MIL our account number so she can just start depositing his pay directly into our bank account.

Which I didn't know until just now.

and I checked our account.

and had a mini heart attack because GIANT DEPOSIT WHOA

and I was all "FFFFF OMG WHAT IS THIS?"

and called him.

and he was like "LOL BB ITS OK. WE GOT PAID"

and I'm all "OMFG WARN ME JFC. I THOUGHT THE BANK HAD MESSED UP AND IT WAS A SNAFU AND WE'D SOMEHOW GET IN TROUBLE"

Yeah.

So.

Now that we have gotten paid--I'm gonna pay off our bills. =DDD

*dances*

Well. Mostly. Toiletries, pillows, they wait until tomorrow before work.

Hubby and I are all packed up for the wedding weekend up in Mackinac Island. I'm excited, though its gonna be TIGHT getting there. We don't have much squirrled away, but then, its not like we're not used to tight $ situations...

IF ONLY THEY'D HAD THE WEDDING IN ANOTHER STATE. Then I coulda said "Sorry, can't come, blah blah"

But noooo. Had to be in MI. Where I live. Well, where all the family lives. BAH.

I mean, I coulda said no anyway--my cousin, Joel, and I, we are not close. No one on my mom's side of the family is really close. Odd, but meh.

Anyway. WE're going, we've got the outfits, we've got enough to get by until my paycheck next week (yay), so all is well.

After work tomorrow I'm driving the loaded up PT Cruiser to the Farm, we're going to pick up some firewood (yay free wood!) the camp chairs, possibly some charcoal, and then sleep. Wake up SUPER early on Thursday morning and head on out.

Hubby may be picking up our camping groceries w/ his dad after work tomorrow, since he's just going straight there. If so, we're freezing ALL the meat, in addition to packing the cooler w/ ice packs and ice. Hubby's idea. Never would have occurred to me. Smart man! we'll pick up a half gallon of milk once we get up there--best not to risk it right?

(I know you can freeze milk but XP)

And then we have a blessed TWO DAYS before the wedding. Well. Technically a day and a half, but we're leaving so early, Thursday will be like a full day of nothing. Well, besides setting up the cabin. Which, I found out, HAS POWER YAY. But we agreed no laptops, boo. But power= Sister can do my haaaair yeaaaaaaah. *dances*

Sooooo, I will not have internet access again until Sunday night. Well, limited FB access, but blech, FB, DNW.

ANYWHO.

Feel free to leave anything you'd like in the comments, except for hate male, or creepy porn or stuff like that. =)

No idea if it'd translate well from book to game, but maybe Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry? Post apocalyptic zombie infested world--whee!

...like the world needs another zombie game! XD

I am stuck. Stuck in a rut in my life, and I really don't have any clear idea of how to get OUT of it.

Part of it is I'm just scared, I think. Which is STUPID--but there we are. Part of it is...well, idk. I just--all I do is work/eat/sleep, and to spice things up, throw in a little worrying about the hubby and/or bills.

And I'm tired of it! BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

SO, MY FRIENDS, I ASK YOU~

How did you figure out what it was you wanted to do with your life? (Or how are you working on changing your life for the better, or how are you working on KEEPING your already fabulous life~)


This entry brought to you buy 3am, random fears, the panic that my 10 year HS reunion is 3 years away and I have NOTHING TO SHOW FOR MY LIFE OMFG, and even worse I have the VERY LAST 4th of July thingy for my dad's side of the family on July 2nd and I HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR MY LIFE and and and yeah.

I'm getting older and I'm panicking, though I promise, really, truly, I'm trying not to.

Advice? Anything? Comments, criticisms, concerns, etc, PLEASE, I beg of you, give me your pearls of wisdom!

Japan~

...AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Oh god, that's *funny*.

Oh right, you're serious? Okay then.

No. Society will never ever overcome racism. The best we can hope for is teaching tolerance, and even that won't be easy. It's hard to teach people to tolerate stuff they hate, because *everyone* has a sense of entitlement. People are arrogant and hateful, and until the human race dies out, they will always be that way.

Pessimistic? Yes, but I still happen to think its true. =/

Baaaa!
