Ended up at some party with a bunch of mexicans. What the fuck is a gapacho anyway. who cares. my weed was better than the shitty, low class stuff they had. sat outside with a couple of them shooting at rats until the police showed up and i got bored n went home.

Some would congratulate you on your martial success, others might think of you as a capitalist kept girl.  Me?  I just want pics of the new shoes.

I also narc'd on an intern after finding that they :ufup while offsite this morning and reported it, then someone else told me that the head honcho thinks I don't like the intern (which is true) so when they asked me about it later on I disguised my narc'ing as genuine concern for the improvement of the quality of the intern's work output. :whew

Typically I'll directly talk to interns about any concerns or advice I have. Most seem pretty awkward in multiple respects, or they'll try to strike up a friendship/professional relationship in hopes of you helping them out when the time comes. I don't go that far but if I can help them get out of a hole I'll do it.

Not at a firm...

If you're fucking up mundane shit on the regular you might want to go into marketing or something, because mundane shit=70% of accounting.

I really only deal directly with interns I have to carry on client cases for instance, and I'll delegate basic shit to them. I don't really run into incompetent interns. Lazy interns though...

I have 2 currently, one in accounting and an engineer. Both are doing well but tend to get overwhelmed by real life situations they don't teach in school. Irate customers, ridiculous timeframes, late paying fortune 500's, vendors pushing for net30 terms despite signing us up at Net60, etc.

No but I expect people to check their work and take note of important tasks before submitting it, and not act shocked or upset if I hold them over to explain how they fucked up as I play clean up. Their fuck up can easily become my fuck up, and it's interesting how many times this happens on a Friday. In terms of age I'm only a few years older than these people, and sometimes they're older than me.

I treat them with respect and recognize they're new but they learned and did everything I did in college. You have to get the simple stuff done or I'll wonder why you're here. Overall though, I don't run into many bad ones.

I only let go of one intern in my career.

Last year I had a girl who could not get to work on time. Now note we start at 8 but I'm not Norman clock nailer or anything, but coming in at 9:30, 9:25, 9:10, 8:45, and finally 10:30 with an excuse of "Oh my favorite band played last night, I overslept" will get you canned rather you think you have hot white girl privilege or not.

She says "you're ruining my college studies" I replied "you are ruining your college studies, I suggest you purchase a better alarm clock or pretend like you have to be at work at 7 in the future"

There's learning by failing and there's not being able to file folders in chronological order or paperwork in the right company's file because you think it's beneath you.

Esteemed members of the central committee of the Borean Liberation Front, I also did not show #solidarity when I recently went out of my way to embarrass a loan manager and an underwriter ad a big 4 bank. As these individuals too are members of the proletariat (to my knowledge), I submit my actions for judgment like it's Die Ma▀nahme outchea.

One thing I've learned: young people can be stupid and unprofessional as fuck. Showing up on time, not looking at your phone, not taking long restroom breaks...simple shit that will make you stand out from your dumbass peers. I'm not talking about my coworkers (although they sure as hell love dem smartphones) but the shit I see when I visit clients.

Worse than any other generation.

I had some interviews for a general driver/warehouse/etc person here and I got a lot of apps from kids who don't know how to dress, how to show up for an interview on time, or generally thought 14 bucks and hour was "crap money"

:snoop

My favorite: Kid comes in and starts the interview with "Oh wow, you're black...good for you man"

Back in college I took a part time bookkeeping job at a small book store, and during the interview the lady asked how is feel about doing minor janitor work towards the end of each night, during the closing period. I said sure no problem, I've cleaned larger buildings. She laughed and said that nearly every young person except me gave her a flippant or ignorant answer, including "I'm here to keep books, not toilets. Do you want me or not."

My dad made me work at 14 or 15- I inserted weekend edition papers at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution distribution center he managed. Shit was basically manual labor and you ended up with newsprint all over yourself by the end of a day. :yuck

Got paid by how much work you did, too- which was good because if you busted your ass you could make about $10/hour, which was better than anything else a 15 year old kid was gonna make back then.

...I blew all that money on comic books instead of saving for a car. :-\

Quit gaming. Cold turkey. I wasn't addicted or anything, but it's not me anymore and it is best to know when it's time to hang it up. It was a pretty easy decision to make. Unfortunately I now have no goal or reason to keep learning Japanese because I initally started learning to play Japanese games in their native tongue because I was sick and tired of having to deal with games I wanted not coming over, and I now I have no goal to do that anymore. Maybe in the future. I've had a lot of cherished memories gaming and I'll remember them forever so that makes me sad, but it's a worthy sacrifice for the future and I doubt such memories will be replicated in the near or far future. I must thank The Evil Within for allowing me to realize that I am simply chasing ghosts and do not have any ounce of passion for gaming anymore. Or rather, I do, but only in old stuff. Time put it up.

I quit anime, aside from anime film because that's the last vestige of legitimacy in the medium. Like gaming, anime is no longer me. Manga still is because there's more variety and I can pick what to read via interest. Thank you G-Rev and Space Dandy for showing me I have outgrown anime, and again, I'm chasing ghosts. I still have passion for animation. I'm moving to LA to pursue that for a reason. But anime today isn't the medium I fell in love with, and rather than constantly trying to replicate and hope for new stuff that appeals to me, I'm giving up.

I've almost killed my internet addiction. Anime and games were just hobbies, but I've been addicted to the net since 15 and that's something I truly want to defeat. It's going well so far. It's also easier to do  - though still hard - when you're concentrating on bettering yourself by learning new things.

I want to start playing music again. Band was one of my favorite things in middle and high school, and while I know it's imposisble to recreate that environment and camaraderie. I fucking miss playing music, so I'm going to pick up the guitar again.

I'm going to attempt to get into peak physical condition by learning Muay Thai. I start on Tuesday.

I need to learn Spanish. Shame about the Japanese, but I'm really proud how far I got.

I turn 30 next year. 2015 has to count for all things in my life up to this point.

First job was washing dishes in a chinese restaurant.  I've had like 56 jobs since then.

My fellow dishwashing bro.

Let me tell you about soul food dishes. That shit sticks to plates like superglue. And the pans :snoop

My uncle made me a plate of ribs and greens for my birthday....then he took it out of my check

 :fbm

Still better than spaghetti in tupperware  :goty2

Himuro, I cut down my internet usage to about one hour per day (exception being for work or school related usage and the occasional day where there isn't shit else to do) about eight months ago and it's amazing how much shit I'm able to get done now in all facets of life.

Quit gaming. Cold turkey. I wasn't addicted or anything, but it's not me anymore and it is best to know when it's time to hang it up. It was a pretty easy decision to make. Unfortunately I now have no goal or reason to keep learning Japanese because I initally started learning to play Japanese games in their native tongue because I was sick and tired of having to deal with games I wanted not coming over, and I now I have no goal to do that anymore. Maybe in the future. I've had a lot of cherished memories gaming and I'll remember them forever so that makes me sad, but it's a worthy sacrifice for the future and I doubt such memories will be replicated in the near or far future. I must thank The Evil Within for allowing me to realize that I am simply chasing ghosts and do not have any ounce of passion for gaming anymore. Or rather, I do, but only in old stuff. Time put it up.

I quit anime, aside from anime film because that's the last vestige of legitimacy in the medium. Like gaming, anime is no longer me. Manga still is because there's more variety and I can pick what to read via interest. Thank you G-Rev and Space Dandy for showing me I have outgrown anime, and again, I'm chasing ghosts. I still have passion for animation. I'm moving to LA to pursue that for a reason. But anime today isn't the medium I fell in love with, and rather than constantly trying to replicate and hope for new stuff that appeals to me, I'm giving up.

I've almost killed my internet addiction. Anime and games were just hobbies, but I've been addicted to the net since 15 and that's something I truly want to defeat. It's going well so far. It's also easier to do  - though still hard - when you're concentrating on bettering yourself by learning new things.

I want to start playing music again. Band was one of my favorite things in middle and high school, and while I know it's imposisble to recreate that environment and camaraderie. I fucking miss playing music, so I'm going to pick up the guitar again.

I'm going to attempt to get into peak physical condition by learning Muay Thai. I start on Tuesday.

You're gonna be so proud of yourself by this time next year, I just know it. You go girl.

Manga was always my preferred medium for that consumption growing up. Get it Himu-sempai.

I really want to learn spanish too. I didn't give a shit in high school but lately I've been kinda falling in love with the language? Really fucking weird.
