Walmart is a pretty fly place once you’re in. Get your free 10% discount card, which isn’t too shabby. Especially since their prices are “oh so low” already, just makes it that much better. Most of the employees or, what they say, associates, are pretty nice people as well. All the managers wear glasses, and i’ve noticed that walmart tries their best to keep you there, and never have you leave. With stock purchase plans and constantly informing you of careers that you can create if you continue to work there. None the less, i don’t buy it, i believe to become a customer service manager, you require at least 5 years, and yet, you still don’t have a great job. Another 10-15 years, probably a manager of a department, and you can’t get much farther i would imagine. Getting probably 20-25$ an hour after 15 years of dedicated work, and still doing a crappy job. Thank god i am going to college this winter. If i find myself still working at Walmart for 5 more years, something happend. Something bad, and i am probably a depressed man. Ironically most associates are as happy as they can be, at least, they act like it.
My customers are great! I have noticed my frequent customers, and i’ve noticed my most hated customers. Don’t get me wrong though, what i am about to write may seem racist, but i am speaking from experience and frequency of this occurence. Arabian customers are very cautious with their money. I laugh to think that people would say this about Jews(who has not heard of a Jew joke - I must be racist haha). They are the ones that frequently stare down the monitor and if the price is mis-labled, they are damn well going to be heard. Ussually it turns out it was their mistake, and they had a misunderstanding. Then they end up having myself take it off of their grocery list, and i have to put it to side, since no one wants it. Also bringing as many coupons. Not only that though, they are very negative. Always quiet, funny how usually their kids are very joyful and happy(must of been how they were raised in India or genes?) And you get the sense that they are are watching that if you DARE make a mistake, they are going to bring down the knife on you.
Now that the rant is over, i must say, being a walmart Cashier is great. Lots of fun, and yet i still need to get a walmart mastercard application, i am enjoying my job! Pay is not great, but i don’t mind, I’ve got ‘other’ things that aid me in my youthful income. Thankyou!~
Have i found my calling? I ain’t sure, but it feels like it right now. I have made an actual Forex Account. Deposited 50$ and well, i am now at 180$ :) Made 130$ Which i think is pretty good for starting out! Although, i have been using a demo account for a few months now.
There were moments though that i messed up pretty badly initially (down a hundred points) and i was just devastated, so i was like YOU MUST STAY IN OR YOU LOSE EVERYTHING. And i was so, SO lucky that it went back down to my initial starting point. I think if i continue to pursue a career in FOREX markets, i will have a very stressful life, haha.
Participating in a competition at my forex broker, and right now i am around 120% or so in profit, and the goal is to make the most profit in a month(seems ludacris) but since i had a small starting point, 75 dollars, it is easier to risk alot of your money without the feeling of risk haha. Last months winner had 800% profit, i need to make around 600 more dollars until i have an equal percent as him. I have the rest of the month to attempt to make that much monay. I think i can do it. Winner gets 1000$ award and a trophy. Looking forward to this! Sadly, it is the weekend and forex market is closed now :C
For those who don’t understand what forex market is, it is the ‘foreign exchange market’ where you trade currencies, and as global economies prosper or plummet you ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ currencies and go back on your trade when you make a profit (consider it like merchanting or stocks - Just GLOBAL)
So, today was kinda lame. Not really well, sort of.
Today was the grad parade. I came down to see it (i was suppose to be in it, BUT MEH, i diddn’t want to ahhaha) and i was late i guess. As i was walking down, they were a bit ahead, and i couldn’t see them very well. So as i ‘walked’ down the street in ‘attempt’ to catch up, but failed to do so, so i failed to see my beloved grad class parade :C
It was also prom and dry grad or what not. I diddn’t go to those either. Mainly because i don’t have many friends (by that i mean, 1) Diddn’t want to be her dog that followed her around the entire place. I am pretty shy kind of guy, and i had a bloody hard time making friends at the school (came in at grade 11 -moved). And in the end, i just never made friends. But what i am getting at. I don’t have a problem with missing prom or dry grad. What i have a problem with is myself! Why can’t i be more open, and more talkative! Make some friends Matthew, GET ON DAT. Maybe thats why i been going on gaia online lately… Just talk to people for a minute and they be like “man, ADD ME” or the LG’s are all like, “your avi is cute D’; ADD ME, CYBERZ”
Maybe it is because i am a super lame person D’; and i just can’t handle the lives of others and i just can’t compute socially D’; On my way back from the parade, i ran into 2 people. Don’t know what the hell their problem was, but one girl was ignoring me, looking away, and I JUST FELT INSULTED hahahhaa. But the entire conversation was awkward. But it was like those conversations that, you give ideas but they don’t react or are really calm in a negative way? Try to persuade them, but they are UNBUDGABLE. ahahahaha
I think now that i have graduated, i may have a easier time getting more social. Not the pressure of my peers. Unless… Unless. FOR SOME REASON, AFTER HIGHSCHOOL, SOME STUDENTS STILL EXIST IN THIS WORLD? BLASPHEMY.
I must become the guy with 500+ friends on facebook D’; and know them ALL. MUAHAHHA. I HAVE A GOAL. Which will probably take the rest of my life… D’;
That horrendous, horrible moment when you find out that your biggest crush said “so glad i moved on from that shit” (something similar to that) and that quote is directly related to you. BLAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Honestly though, the person who told me of what she said lives miles away. Never met ‘my big crush’ but he talks to her via facebook yadda yadda. He likes to get involved in my life… But he was telling me about how apparently i fucked up in getting her. AND THIS IS HORRIBLE NEWS. I MEAN COMON. Was going to confess to her <,< But ofcourse she had to cancel on THAT DAY. Now she has her own bf.
Then my friend was trying to coach me in a way. Saying “we are guys, that just don’t think we will ever get ‘that girl’, we must learn from these experiences” Just made it all worse! But. I don’t know if she is was joking. She likes to joke around about these sort of things, and since my buddy andrew (the guy who was coaching me) lives miles away, she may of thought she could play around and use him to PLAY AORUND IN MY HEAD. I use to tell her that she plays with my heart. I mean, she tottaly knows that i like her. I mean, its not like i blankly said it, but it was kinda obvious. BUT APPARENTLY SHE WAS SETTING SIGNS, BUT NOPE. ME NO SEE THEM, CUES IN ANDREWS WORDS “WE ARE GUYS THAT DON’T SEE ‘THAT GIRL’ SENDING SIGNS” GRUHHH.
Anyways…. Now me sad… Lameeeeeeeeeeee
Came news to me today that my mother is choosing to put down our dog. Buster is his name. Most people put down their dog due to health issues, old age, some sort of reason that is leaving the dog in a painful way of life. This is not our case, it is simple as, money issues. The place we moved into has a damage deposit, 525$ for damage deposit for a pet. Not a surprise, but, the surprise is that we are unable to find the funds and pay the deposit in the given time. So, it seems to me that my Mother made a deal with the devil/Realtor. Putting down the dog will allow us to bypass the deposit.
It really isn’t about the money to me. I am not afraid to lose my dog. It is more about my mothers thoughts on the issue and how she attempts to cope with her decision. She went on about his health, my dogs health is not that bad, he is happy(could be happier, ofcourse) but he is a happy dog and enjoys his walks and sleeps (just like all dogs). He does have a ‘fat pocket’ (i believe that is what it is called), it and handicaps his walking though, only by a bit, he kinda had a stubbier walk than most dogs, but he still walks fine, he enjoys his walks. Although, the vet says it can become painful when walking.
The main thing is that, my mother is attempting to justify her economic decision in that she is seeing only the negatives and exaggerating. Telling me that it would be a crime to keep him alive. This has never became an issue until now, nor did she ever bring up the putting down of buster until pressed by a Realtor. But. Finalizing my thoughts she one thing that got me “if you can pay for the deposit, i would gladly keep him” This is what changes us. This is a sentence that defines the lower class’ economic situation. Also maybe a life lesson. We cannot have what we want, we cannot have what we wish. Money. Money money money, makes the worst of us it really does. I wonder when looking back, thinking that you ‘killed’ a dog in order to save money.
Everything is going awesome. Well, pretty much. Going to graduate in a month, pretty psyched about that. Summer! Summer full of lazy time! Woo! Well, Hopefully not.
Right now i feel like i have so much free time. Truly i don’t, got large biology assignment, English assignment on ‘1984’, prep for my calc test. But honestly, i feel no pressure to do those today, at least, now for a few hours. I just feel free, or well, fresh maybe. Got home and i felt good about how i looked. I mean, my hair is incredibly long, and horrifying hideous (gonna try and shave it all off asap) but i feel that p90x2 is really starting to kick in! No abs or anything, but just more fit looking, or in better words, thinner. :)
Calc test was incredibly easy today. Surprised myself - i was shaking when it started, i had so much build up. Average on the test was in the 70’s. SO i assumed everyone had a brutal time doing it. I THINK THEY ARE ALL STUPID, AND I AM THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD. Then again, i did skip the test day, and had an extra 6 days to study. And trust me, i studied. Oh yes i did. Every day of the week, did the review roughly 6 times or so. Tomorrow i got part 2 of the test (lunch time isn’t enough to to do the entire test so…) Ready to kick some more ass!
Going to watch the Truman Show tonight! Never really saw it, but ya know, Jim Carrey and all… i sort of built all this hype, i know i’ve seen it a long long long long time ago, the entire movie will be completely new feeling to me.
Looking in jobs around where i live. Home hardware is hiring, can tottaly see me offering tips to those who come asking about how to install their new furnace(not). But honestly, this would be my first real job. It will be heartbreaking the amount of money that will fall in my lap. It will be ridiculous! The 60$ a month from my paperroute from a year ago will be on no level compared to THE CASHIER JOB. OR MAYBE… CLEANER AT AN OLD FOLKS HOME. There was an ad about working at an oldfolks home. Would be alot of fun i think, all the history! All the knowledge of 70+ years of life, of over maybe 100+ people. yikes.
Anyways, Adios, Ciao ciao.
So, just for fun, i attempted to find a whack of items that i would buy. Mostly electronics, stuff that I use daily, and just random things. Couldn’t even get pass the 6000$ mark, I wouldn’t know what to purchase. Ofcourse, i diddn’t go super expensive items, just what i thought were the best. Unless, do i need that 100 inch HDTV?
Unless you wanted to buy jewlerry or clothes and stuff, maybe 10000$ would go buy really quickly! But, just pure electronics. Nope, no way i could find what to buy.
So with the additional 4000$ or so, i was thinking. ROAD TRIP ACROSS NORTH AMERICA.
About to read for an hour or so. We are reading ‘1984’ in our english 12. So far it is a pretty good book, only 40 pages in, but i sense i will not be able to put the book down in an hour.
Just madesome Veggies&Dip to accompany me on this reading situation. First time ever making Veggiesa&Dip. Pretty sad considering all you do is cut a few carrots and cucumbers, etc, and put with some dip. I always adored this dish, but i never made it. Luckily, I MADE IT TODAY, now i am going to have EVERY DAY. Muahahahhaha.
Made 1800$ in simulation money! Been playing around with the forex market, and well, made 1800$ on today alone. Today, if you check the US/CAD pair, there was a huge drop, and i purchased, and ofcourse, it went backup. And bam, 1800$ in simulation money! If only i had real money invested!
This really makes me interested in taking an economics course when available. One reason why i think that this is great is that, brokers give you a leverage. Ranging from 50:1 to 500:1! So, for every 1$, you have 500$ to use in the forex market. Reason of this, is due to the stability of the dollar, stock brokers give alot small rates due to the huge changes that can happen. So, once i get 1000$, going to put it in a forex broker, and startplaying with 500,000$! Ofcourse, there is the possibility that i will go negative, but it is very likely, it will go back up, and hopefully it all works out!
It is very exciting, i mean, today alonei made 1800$ in the forex market (simulator, but still!) If i found 2 or 3 times a month, that i was pretty certain that the US/CAD pair would increase by money, would be set!
I may be doing this post just to persuade myself to get into the market, but i am confident that this could be something very big i my life. Or very bad, Lets get busy. Sadly the market is closed over the weekend, so, no trading for me! :”(]
I think i am missing something, i am sure there is some catch that i have not read about yet which makes the market extremely difficult to make money, but never know. I may know all the catches already, and i am just trying to catch, THE CATCH.
