how does someone involved with 3 orgs, 1 alliance, 2 jobs, 17 credits, a life with whipped cream and a cherry on top handle it all?

"with finesse."

To see a ship in your dream, denotes that you are exploring aspects of your emotions and unconscious mind. The state and condition of the ship is indicative of your emotional state. If it is a cruise ship, then it suggests pleasant moods. If it is a warship, then you are experiencing feelings of aggression.

To dream that you are sailing the high seas in a ship, denotes that you are standing tall in times emotional turmoil.

To dream that a ship crashed or is sinking, suggests that some aspect of your life is out of control. You are expressing some fear or uncertainly within your emotional state. You are afraid of losing something close to you because of certain difficulties.

don't worry, my personal feelings are still for you, livejournal

Phew! That was a nerve-wrecking one. Out of the 8 evening-shift employees, 2 were packed up and fired right on the spot before my eyes. Luckily, I made the cut tonight - and tonight only. But who knows, they said there is a large possibility of another cut in a few weeks time. So, I am on the hunt for a new job right now. Can’t be havin that unstability here any longer.

I had all that mess with work and told myself I needed to find a better job with better stability. The same day I got a notice from one of my instructors at school about a paid internship as a graphic designer at a company downtown. So I applied and got a call back within 24 hours. I’ve got an interview with them on Tuesday! And I really hope everything works out with this one because it requires less hours but pays more than my current job, it’s only 5 minutes away from my school and I could knock out required internship hours for my program! I am not expecting too much because I don’t want to let myself down if I don’t get it. But, we’ll see and hopefully this works out! =)

Just got a company talk about how the economy is shit and the marketplace for young businesses (like the one I work at), are deep in shit. And since they can't cut that shit out - they're cutting everything else. Hours, paychecks, even whole positions. 50% of the company's employees are being laid off. Tonight.

So in about 5 hours or less, I'll know if I'll still have a job or not.

This sucks. Bad.

There is an election next week. If you find yourself voting that day, then good for you. You made a choice. If not, then good for you too, you also made a choice.

I don’t have a problem with voting. I really really don’t. I will vote on Election Day - I’ve already picked my candidates for every race and my votes on the ballot questions. So you know, I don’t hate on voting.

But I do have a problem with how much our society fetishizes voting. Every four years, there are all these national ad campaigns with big celebrities telling me I’m a fool if I don’t vote. What, I’m supposed to listen to goddamn Jessica Alba? Seriously? What does she know about anything that has to do with real life?

What these commercials ignore is that elections don’t just happen every four years. There are city or state or national elections in every intervening year, so why are we ignoring those?

And larger than that, we need to use our critical lens to make choices every single day, not just in voting booths. Say for example, if you’ve made a choice to use your workday to make money for the government or multinational corporations. Are you doing the most that you could do with every day? No I’m sure not, but then again, that’s fine, do you. I don’t judge, because every person has various factors affecting the way they make decisions. Doing what you do may be the right thing for you at the time you do it.

Or if you continue to drive yourself to work, even though you know there are alternatives that would use less gas. Or you patronize businesses that exploit immigrant labor. Or you consume mainstream media, all of which is right of center. Or you continue to watch pro sports, even though you know they are exploitative. Or you whatever. I do it all too. Again, not for me to judge, and I mean that sincerely.

But don’t tell me that because you vote every four years, you’re doing your part. Don’t fool yourself. There’s so much more we could all be doing that we’re not doing. Showing up on Election Day doesn’t mean we get a pass for another four years of middling political involvement.

Those powerful folks want you to think that voting represents the utmost in political participation. Ad campaigns come around because we’re supposed to believe that voting is the maximum level of participation for any of us, when the truth is: it’s much closer to the minimum.

The point is: we need to do a lot of work out here. Getting to a voting booth next week definitely means something, but just isn’t as impressive as the people in power want us to believe it is. It’s basically one step above putting a bumper sticker on your car.

Vote: it’s the least you can do.

No literally. It’s the LEAST you can do.
