what am i doing with my life today

You know, every time I saw games on itch.io with “pay what you want” as the price, and you could just download them for free, I always thought that probably didn’t work. Like, people would just download it for free, right?

My completely free game has been up for about 5 hours and I’ve gotten just over 100 dollars in “sales.”

You people are so nice honestly. Thank you all so much!

TalesFromTheFrontDesk: I've never had a ruder guest in my life and I am pretty shaken up.

I don’t know… I just feel like this is the only place I can post something like this and I am really shaken up. I still have 4 hours left on my shift and I want to go home, my managers were douchebags about it and I only got 2 hours of sleep last night so… yeah. I’m having a rough one. And to also preface this, I am pretty shy and I have always hated confrontation, but weirdly this trait of mine flew out the window today and I stood up for myself which I never do.

Anyways I wanted to rant about the WORST GUEST that I have ever encountered in my life and my experience today. Looking at it now I feel like I probably wasn’t very professional at some points but I just didn’t really know what to do and it hit a point where I basically lost it.

So let’s just dive in. Guest= A.S.S. (Angry Shameless Scumbag)

Breakfast is from 7-10. Last night we were about 80% full and we have 97 rooms so for us we expected maybe 100 guests at breakfast. We actually got more like 200 guests and a family that brought in about 30 non-guests that paid for breakfast. We have a VERY nice breakfast kitchen compared to other hotels I have seen or stayed in. We were understaffed today and had one girl working breakfast. She is AWESOME and was working her butt off getting everything out.

So at the beginning at 9:45, ASS came up complaining about how our sausages and eggs were out. There were probably 20 people up at the kitchen counter and every table and couch in the lobby was filled. I told her that the breakfast lady was probably getting more ready, but that breakfast was ending soon so that was probably why. Her response to this was “Well that’s not my fault!” (and subsequently that was her response throughout the morning btw).

SO. I offer to ask the breakfast worker if she is doing okay and needs help and inquire about why the meat is out (even though I already know) and ASS decides to follow me into the kitchen while I do so. I ask her awkwardly since I had intended to privately warn the breakfast lady about ASS, but now with her standing there I felt like I had to put my breakfast lady on the spot. I was super nice about it though, and said something like, “Hey our meats are out, can I help you so it goes a little quicker?” Something similar. She was nice and said to us that they were cooking.

ASS was not satisfied with this answer… and she proceeded to follow me out to the kitchen in front of all our guests. She began to loudly tell me that her children wanted eggs and there were none. Let me reiterate, this was peak breakfast hour with about 100 people in the room. It was crowded. It was AWKWARD. It was infuriating. At this point, my maintenance man and breakfast lady and I are all helping restock cereal and milk and yogurt, the things that we COULD restock ya know? But because I’m the customer service person she focused on me.

I remained calm and collected the whole time during THAT encounter, and kept saying “Well ma'am we actually do have food out. It’s just the eggs and sausages that are not done cooking yet.” She wouldn’t have it. She demanded to see a manager. (This is all STILL in the actual breakfast area.) I told her It’s a Sunday, we don’t have a manager on site, but she is welcome to leave her a note. She finally left. Everyone noticed and a lot of guests gave us some sympathetic eyerolls… which was cool.

Anyways a few minutes later I’m back at the desk and here comes ASS. I’m ready for her with my manager’s card so that I can get rid of her quickly. She first starts saying how we are going to comp her room for this. I probably was ruder than I should have been, but here’s our conversation:

ASS: I will be talking to your manager and I want my room comped, I want you and your breakfast lady written up, and I want you to pay me for my breakfast.

Me: Oh, ma'am, chuckle we won’t comp your room for this.

ASS: Oh YES YOU WILL!

ME: No, I doubt we will since you came down at the very end of breakfast during a rush and we were doing the best we could.

ASS: Say that again! (She then proceeds to hold up her phone to me).

ME: Um EXCUSE ME? Are you videoing me?

ASS: You bet I AM!

ME: You better delete that right now. I am dead serious. You have absolutely no right to take a video or picture of me without my consent.

ASS: Oh i’m not deleting ANYTHING! (Snaps more pictures of me)

ME: If you don’t delete that right now I will literally call the cops on you.

ASS: Okay I’m deleting them I’m deleting them. But this is disgusting. You are a disgusting person, this hotel is disgusting and nasty (we’re like a super clean and nice hotel…) And I will never give you my business again!!! (Oh trust me, we are fine with that!)

She wrote down my name on the card and I didn’t see her after that.

So while that whole encounter sucked and it was embarrassing, and the entire lobby filled with guests saw it happen twice, I was REALLY bothered that she went after ME! I have nothing to do with breakfast. I will obviously help if needed but I am not to blame for slow breakfast service, and she didn’t even address the actual breakfast lady! It was just weird.

Anyways I wrote it alllll down for my manager to read in the morning. But here’s the even WORSE part of the whole thing. I had to call my GM earlier in the day because I am fairly new and didn’t know where the key was to get into the safe to get our rolled coins for change. She didn’t answer and there were 3 people needing change, so I called our sales manager (who used to be the front desk manager and knows everything). Apparently we aren’t supposed to call her, because I got a call back from my GM chewing me out for calling the Sales manager, even though she didn’t answer!! That sucked, and then since I had her I decided to warn her about the mean complaint she would be getting. She chewed ME out saying it’s MY fault that I didn’t check the food (I’ve literally never been expected to do that) and help breakfast. She said “Well that’s on YOU” because we ran out of meat. It was a SUPER busy front desk morning and I could barely step away for half a minute…. what does she want from me??

Idk. I’m pissed at the WHOLE thing. Mean guests are one thing… we all get them from time to time and you just move on from it. But not having a manager that backs me up? Well that’s really hard on me, and I am struggling a lot with this. I used to have a GM who was AMAZING and told us he always trusts our judgment. I miss that so much…. Ugh. Sorry for this long rant, but I have had a very bad day.

Ok this blog is not about politics, but somehow it’s about my life.
So here I am, living in Russia, the country with beautiful people: talented musicians, artists, dancers, amazing doctors, teachers and all the other professionals who know how to be a good person and how to do things right.

But the rest of the world judge us just by one politician. Radical, homophobic, aggressive. The world says - that’s their leader as a representation of the nation. So let me show you what our nation is.

Today, on March 26, we had meeting protests against the government throughout the country in 99 (!) cities and towns. People were clamoring against the system and corruption with slogans ‘Russia shall be free’, ‘Russia without Putin’, ‘The criminal has to go to the prison’. In Brazil or South Korea that would end for the government in a fair law court…  But what we got as a feedback? When thousands of unarmed russians went to the street to shout out for justice, thousands of policeman and soldiers started to arrest them. There was no exception for women, children or oldman. I was there, in the heart of Moscow, protesting with others. 

And here I want to say that it literally hurts me when I see in social networks like tumblr all the hatred adressed to Russia. When you are afraid of russians, when you think of us as rude homophobic savages who barely know what civilization and human rights is.

Please
, try to look deeper on what happens here.
We are people. And we need your support.

So tomorrow my new music video will premiere on Buzzfeed, but before it does I wanted to write a little note about it to you guys personally.

I’ve never truly believed that sexuality defines who you are. I do believe, though, that sexuality helps shape and build who you become. How you act, what you pursue, who you surround yourself with. This music video for “Sleepover” is not a concept or an idea for me. It is my life. It defines a part of who I am today. I grew up a dreamer and found comfort through a safe haven in my head. It’s where I was able to find self-love and feel validated. This music video validates those feelings for me, even if in those moments the girl I fell for was unavailable. I made this video to help validate those fantasies. To create a space for the lovers, dreamers and seekers. Falling in love can be a bittersweet feeling, especially if you know it’ll never be reciprocated. I think we can all relate to that. Thanks for always supporting me. Love you.

How often my conversations about feminism have spiraled into requests for assault. I say, “Women don’t need men to defend them,” and am asked, “Can I punch you, then?” And I say, “Women belong in movies and video games and everything,” and I hear terrible things, unprintable slurs and demands for my assault, the threatening of a young woman to shut up: What they would do to silence me. The things they’d shove between my teeth. I say, “Men cannot threaten any woman they disagrees with,” and I’m told, “Women are just as cruel. Am I not supposed to respond in kind?” In my inbox today I have deleted sixteen messages asking for my life. When I say, “Your virginity only means what you want it to mean,” I’m asked, “If you believe in sexual freedom can I fuck you?” When I say “All it takes to be a woman is to want to be a woman,” I am asked, “So if I just say that I’m a woman, can I watch you in the shower?” As if women stand shadowy behind each other in our private moments. As if being woman means sexually assaulting each other.

Part of me - cynical, unwilling to be frightened, says that it might be a nice dose of reality. My shower where I am naked but my hair becomes streaky and thin, where my body sags, where my makeup smears. To witness a woman less than sexy, legs akimbo while shaving, pulling up flab thighs to reach the underside. Part of me dares them to punch me because I fight to win and am small but I’ll kill a man if he touches me. Once I dropped a U.S Marine. Part of me, hellfire and ice queen - says come on, then. You want a fight? Come fight me.

But more is scared. More timidly deletes messages, makes sure my name is hidden, doesn’t answer the endless antifeminist comments. The insertion of men and their opinion on simple things like “I teach children to ask before hugging.” When I close my eyes sometimes I wonder if they’re right and that scares me. How much am I going to change when my voice only echoes around me.

Why are you angry. Why are you angry. What do you think we are taking from you? If it’s not already equal why would equality frighten you.

The ancient art of being a woman and trying to get your voice heard: the gentle suggestion, the peaceful comment. The quiet listening to another opinion and the fact we must acknowledge it before we can continue. That I must educate, be sweet, be feminine in my feminism or else it’s “invalid.” I must present my declaration as a timid thing: “Women maybe should be part of more things.” And then the apologies: of course I don’t hate men, yes I like plenty of things with men in them, no I don’t think women are better. And then the explanations: women are people, here is the number of women in media, here is the number of dead women in media, here are the number of shows led by men. And then I brace for it. For the bullying.

Every time I speak it’s from a flinch. From “maybe this isn’t always the case but for me it is.” From please listen. From less demanding. God forbid I state factually that men are violent. If I speak about our fathers and brothers and the cycle of anger unfolding. God forbid I suggest that just once we should cut the bullshit and treat women well without pandering to men about how that helps them. What if I say “Men shouldn’t hit anyone. Hitting isn’t an answer.”

I’ll tell you what happens. The post was up for four seconds with three notes. The message I get is “If hitting isn’t allowed I’ll just go ahead and shove a gun down your throat.”

  • therapist: so, what can I do for you today?
  • me: *forgets everything* nothing, I'm fine and probably always were bye

anonymous asked:

where do you work?

I work at a company that makes mobile apps! It’s super laid back, I get paid a lot, and I love it so much! I finished school a couple years ago and I wasn’t too sure what to do with my life. I kept searching online, asking friends, family, etc., but I couldn’t find anything that I was truly interested in.

I downloaded this app called Good & Co., and it seriously changed my life! All I did was take some short, fun personality quizzes, and the app told me what kind of traits I have, who I’d get along with, and what kind of jobs would be the best for me. That’s how I found my job today, and I am so thankful for Good & Co!

Which path leads back to you? I think life is strange. We know each other. It has only been for a few months, but I know who you are. Some day I won’t be the same. The same thing goes for you. Isn’t it a little scary? The person that I am today… I won’t laugh the same after hearing the joke for a second time. My thoughts will be altered. New feelings will smother old feelings. What if my passion for writing burns out? I’ve been doing some thinking about what is in my heart. When was the last time I picked myself? When did I lose my way? The choices I have made… my regrets and mistakes… when will I forgive myself? I can drop it all and say fuck it. I can smile and laugh it off, but am I being honest to myself for myself? Maybe the life quotes are right… everything happens for a reason. There you go again. Lost. Which path will lead you back to me? The things you felt last week, the kiss you blew to me, your voice over the phone, your heart and my heart clings to one another– we may change one day, but today we’re still us. Do you ever think about where your next passion will come from? I heard that from within ourselves we’ll find a perfect balance between selfish and selfless. How can I say that I love you if I can’t even say it to myself? How can I expect you to respect me if I don’t even respect me? It’s all internal. There’s a grey cloud in every poem. I didn’t mean to hurt anyone. I just want to better– a better me to come home to.

Polishing Up a Reading

This is how I personally do readings when I’m being fancy. I’m not saying your way is wrong.

INTRODUCE yourself. “Hi, nice to meet you! Thank you for letting me read for you today!”

DISCLAIM if you need to do this in order to feel comfortable. “Just as a reminder, this reading, as with all readings, should be taken in context of your personal experiences and with a grain of salt.”

RESTATE their question, especially if you had to slightly alter the wording to fit your method of divination. “I am reading for the question, ‘what will my love life be like next month?'”

INTRODUCE your reading. “Today I drew for you three cards…” “Today I cast these fives stones…” etc.

NARRATE your interpretations. “The Lovers card means you will have a healthy and fruitful romantic life in the upcoming month!”

DESCRIBE what about your tools helped draw you to this interpretation. This adds an extra layer of depth to any reading. “I was especially drawn to how the Lovers are holding hands, with a dove over them.” “I noted the close proximity of the Fehu rune to the Isa rune, which…”

SUPPORT your reading with the holy trinity: Intuition, Appearance, and Book Knowledge. Allow your intuition to flow forth and unite your spread in to a coherent narrative. Read the spread as it lies before you. Research extra textbook meanings to ensure nothing is missed.

SUMMARIZE your entire spread in to a paragraph. Hit your main points, reiterate the important messages, and give your querent a bite-sized takeaway of the entire reading. I believe summarizing is important even for one card, one rune, etc., spreads.

This is Keith.

He wanders around the city of Brooklyn, Ohio and talks to his stuffed unicorn companion. I saw him at the grocery store today and people would pass him then look at me and just roll their eyes. Other’s would tell me they wish they had their phones on them and some would just stare. Finally, I struck up a conversation with him as he came my way. Eventually I asked him what he was doing today and he said he was going to be celebrating everyone’s un-birthday. He said “Whoever doesn’t have a birthday is who I am going to celebrate!” I asked for a photo and as he walked away, he smiled and said “By the way, you look gorgeous!”

He may seem sweet and innocent but he is actually one of the reasons underage students in middle and high school are getting their hands on drugs, whether it be marijuana or coke or worse. He is dangerous and he scares the crap out of me lmfao.

03/02/17 || What a tiring day today has been, I’ve woken up at 6am to go to uni because I had to register one of my grades. I then came straight back home and started studying again. I can barely keep my eyes hopes, I don’t know how I’ll be able to keep this up.

I also wanted to say that I’m sorry I always moan in these posts, but it’s just that this is my main outlet for this kind of stuff. So yeah I’m sorry but I do know how lucky I am to have this life so yeah.
