Success, the word that seems too unattainable. The striving word of our past, present, and future. But how in our society have we defined success and why is the pressure for the "desk" so apparent?
So, like I said, I haven't had many jobs in my life cause, I'm usually pretty good at keeping them. This place however, felt the need to "get back" at my name because my brothers created a shitty look for the family in the time that they were there. The people of the company LOOKED for any reason to get rid of me BEFORE I made it through my 90 day probation. They did it 3 times, and each time it was COMPLETE BULLSHIT but, I had no power over the situations.
When I was five, I had learned that I had a love for art. I would draw every chance I could get. It was just a passion I held at that early age. Cartoons, obviously, were an influence at the time. As I've grown older I've only gotten even better. Even though I no longer have a career in drawing like I had always dreamt I would, I did have the opportunity to work with an independent multi-media company. This company was reaching popularity because the man that had founded it was cunning and intelligent. Despite coming off as independent, he was actually quite kind and helpful. At least I had thought so.
Warehouses are usually very large spaces with complex logistics and a number of functions. Every little thing that can be done to improve the organization and safety of the employees should be seriously considered and eventually implemented. Line marking paint or tape project is one of those practices which can help you create a safer and more efficient facility by marking everything from product storage areas to hazardous areas. If you are considering upgrading your warehouse with floor striping, here are a few tips that should help you do this properly.
There are many pros to being an intern at a company. Most people think that the "intern" doesn't do much but I am here to explain why interns do more than you would think. For example, whenever the office needs someone to get Starbucks, the intern is there to do it. Also, whenever someone needs to take out the trash, the intern is there. In my previous experiences as an intern, I have noticed that watching other peoples' work ethic and seeing what they are doing is very helpful. Also, in the office, there are going to be some people that you don't like or are not particularly happy to answer to. You need to just accept it and deal with it. Your there to gain experience and learn the business. DO WHAT IS TOLD AT ALL TIMES! When the boss says something, listen carefully. They don't like it when they have to repeat themselves. I know from experience. That movie reference was needed for laughing purposes only. In addition, I have seen many instances where an intern doesn't get paid the most attention. Learning how to feel comfortable with that is key. You don't want to get down because you aren't being called a lot.
When you have a schedule planned out of what you need to do each week, you soon realise that without it, things go out of the window. That's when you end up spending two days unable to do anything you planned on, because of the sheer number of other things you need to do. That's when your work has piled up that you should have done in the two days that you were doing other things; I am never going to do that again, unless I have pre-planned the whole thing, including what I'm writing as part of what I've scheduled for the week.
Early this spring I had the privilege to take a screenwriting course at Houghton College as part of my writing major there. Going into it, I was both scared and excited. It was a completely new form of writing for me. Not only had I lacked any experience writing screenplays, but I also lacked any experience reading them. Much to my relief, however, I discovered that the writing process is not much different from any other form of the written word, and neither was the reading/analysis aspect. Though there were new guidelines I had to pay attention to, in terms of my own mental process, as well as technique, I experienced little change.
Let me start off by saying I love food, cooking, and everything in between. I'm passionate about where my ingredients come from, the farmers who grow or raise my products, and I'm borderline obsessed with keeping up with the newest creations and innovations in the culinary world. I just don't normally like eating. Contradictory, I know, but bear with me.
When do you create? Do you only create when inspiration strikes and you feel this manic need to express it? Will you pick up the pen or paintbrush only if an idea has clearly presented itself in your mind? Or do you take action no matter what state you're in? Show up to do the work regardless of the clarity in which you see the outcome.
I am constantly humbled by other artists. There is so much talent and skills out there, at times I feel like I can't even categorize myself an artist. Rather, I'm just a kid playing around with some paint.
You're writing a novel and the sentences are flowing, the scene is set and suddenly, you're stuck. Sound familiar? You guessed it, that dreaded thing we call writer's block.
“What! The project is due for Monday? I’ll get right on it!” You shout before putting down the slice of toast you thought was your phone and promise yourself you’ll try to get more sleep tonight.
