Hi guys, been ages. 

 

Came back from my trip to Norway over a week ago. It was completely amazing. The Fjordruta was way more into the wild than I thought it would be, and on the second day we ended up getting lost on the way up a mountain. We decided to just climb the thing since it was in our way, ended up spending almost the entire day climbing off the trail till we ended up finding the trail again and climbing the rest from there. It was tough but to get to the top and see the view, it just made it all worth it. We set up our tents there and ended up seeing the northern lights on the top of that mountain. Unforgettable experience. The last few days we spent in a wonderful house we rented, which had a lake in its backyard among other perks. All in all, good times were had. 

 

Other than that, bought a new laptop last week. It's way too good for me and I love it. Last laptop kinda stopped working, since it just randomly shuts down constantly. Only thing I'm still really worried about right now is my iTunes library, since I haven't been able to back it up properly on a drive before my laptop died.

I mean.. It is fast food. Not sure why anyone would expect that work environment to be anything but shitty

 

What does it matter which sector it is? If the people you work with are shitty people, you'll dread going to work and vice versa, whether you're a garbage man or a rocket scientist. 

 

 

Worked the last 3 days, my feet are sore and I'm tired but oh well, I get paid.

 

 

 

Ouch, best of luck with that Nox, sounds like a shitty situation to be in. 

 

I start working at McDonald's again tomorrow. Should be really hot and we're in a pretty touristic area so it'll immediately be a busy day to start off, but oh well. 

 

 

My boyfriend only just started working at McDonald's as well. Only been there two days and his colleagues are racist, sexist high school dropouts and he was talking to one of them about something and the guy randomly described black people as animals and needing to be kept in the zoo. Was a bit awkward for my boyfriend and he wisely decided not to explain that his girlfriend is black  :unsure: They also constantly disrespect female managers and make fun of women on the job.

 

Anyway, yeah working on fries is quite intense according to him as he's never had any sort of customer service job or food-related job. He's undercooked nuggets and got a burn on his arm from the oil, so you could say it's going well  :o

 

Good thing the McDonald's I work at isn't anything like that. Even students who have barely any idea what they're doing on the job don't get disrespected (by staff I mean), nor do any of the female staff. It's actually a pretty good working environment. It had been a while since I last worked there and the place had been renovated since, and there's been some changes to the menu and such that I've had to adapt, but even if it's really busy I always feel like I can ask my question to someone else and get a decent reply. 

 

And Nox, I've been wondering, what exactly drew you to Qatar in the first place? 

 

It's awful, even the manager said to a Lithuanian boy who was working there "If you can't do the job, I'll find someone who can you stupid polish idiot!"

It's outrageous and an awful working environment. My boyfriend is constantly being put down for being slow at things he's never done before.

Apparently after three shifts, you're not a trainee anymore.

 

 

I do remember them having pretty high expectations from me as well when I just started out. My first day, almost 3 years ago now, I learned how to make hamburgers in the morning when there weren't a lot of people, but once noon came around it was just another busy summer day and I had to work as if I knew exactly what I was doing. Sure, I'd sometimes get some additional help or something, but after 2-3 shifts they expect you to get the hang of it. Like I said though, they never really resort to abuse to make something clear to you; they'll just try to explain things, or maybe they'll show you a different method of doing something you've learned.

#5559591 Things that annoy the HELL out of you.

To be honest, as someone who kind of straddles the line between being a native English speaker and having it as a second language, I feel it's completely justified to see things like "should of" as unprofessional. If I'm writing an email to someone important about something important and I get a mail back with grammar mistakes like that, I immediately lose a bit of trust in whoever I'm writing to. There's something similar to it in Dutch, where there might sometimes be confusion with the conjugation of certain verbs, causing a semi-common mistake to pop up. If you make a mistake like that on an essay, you'd be lucky if the professor would finish reading it. It's just a matter of education, and effort: the rule is pretty simple and universal in its application, so making a mistake on it usually shows a certain amount of apathy in your writing, something you just don't want to be showing when you're writing something important. 

 

And now completely random, but is Alg female? Have I been lied to through the medium of username for all this time?

Looks like I'm dropping out of college after half-assing it for 2 years. It feels kind of liberating, but I feel kinda bad about it as well because I know I have the intellectual capabilities for it, and I had some great times over there. I just never really found the motivation to work for it and the academic aspect ended up getting me closer to depression than to anything else. I'm still keeping university open for a later point in my life, but right now I just want to spend at least a year out of university and see what happens. I might go to Switzerland in the winter with two of my friends who are ski instructors and just stay there during the season working as a waiter or whatever. My friend who's been there before says they actually earn a pretty sizable loan, and they're always looking to hire at the start of a season. I've even been considering moving to Seattle, though that might be a bit too far out of my comfort zone. City's fascinated me for ages now though, so I'm thinking of taking the plunge eventually, even if it's in a few years. 

 

Other than that, same ol' same ol'.

Have a gig with the band tonight, it's a battle of the bands and I'm really looking forward to it. Our last rehearsal went pretty well but I almost lost my voice from how long it took. Let's hope my voice holds up tonight.

I don't know why everyone hated The Interview so much, I thought it was pretty entertaining.

Sounds like my father if you replace the Russian with Arabic. He doesn't even need a phone to talk to someone on another continent.

Hi guys. I could write a long detailed post about everything that's happened in my life between now and the last time I posted here, but instead I'll just assure everyone I didn't randomly die.

Does this make the UK the first EU member to legalize gay marriage? 

Nope.

 

Hi guys, been ages since I've posted but I've just been lurking for a while. Last night we finally had another concert with the band, it's been since early last summer that we performed in front of a crowd and it felt great to be back on stage. We also recorded a kind of demo. One of my best friends studies stage techniques (or whatever you would call it in English) and had an assignment where he had to record a live band. He asked us, and now we've got some songs recorded, which also feels nice. It's not the best quality around, but I'm still quite happy with them.

Yesterday evening started as a relaxing evening here at my place. We got together, gamed a bit, then watched a movie. Then at 12 AM we suddenly went out and bought 2 bottles of vodka for 5 people, since it would be the last time we could go crazy before we all have to start cramming. We ended up going out around 3, and went home just before 6. Now we're all hungover, but what an evening though.

Hi guys, I'm back. Got back from my eurotrip on Wednesday and it was such an amazing experience. I won't say much about Amsterdam, except that it's a bit blurry. Berlin was a beautiful city with a lot of sights to see (after 4 days we still hadn't seen everything) and with a vibrant nightlife. Prague is a wonderful city, was my personal favourite. We met a local there who showed us two amazing places to eat, and we went to a crazy club one night after sharing a bottle of absinth. It's a special drink, absinth, gets you drunk in a completely different way if drunk by its own. Combined with other alcohols it just gets you drunk. Vienna was a nice city as well, but coming from Prague it was kind of underwhelming. We did visit a lot of churches there, which was a nice change of pace from the constant walking around. Bratislava was much more beautiful than I expected, but it was really small as well. One night there we met a bunch of Irishmen there who happened to have their room in the hostel right beside us, and they showed us their Irish way of drinking: mixing all the bottles of liquor on the table into one disgusting drink that gets you [bleep]ed up. So much more happened on the trip but I don't want to bore you all with a whole book of a post.

 

The last two days I was at a small festival about 20 mins from here. It was great to go there right after that long trip, because it was a good opportunity to see a lot of people back that I hadn't seen in a while.

Anyway, hi everybody. Just checking in I guess.

The way I see it, RPG, if you know exactly what you drank the night before you didn't drink enough :P

Anyway, 6 more days and school's all over for me. Well, high school at least, I'm still looking at at least 4-5 more years of study afterwards. I've gotten pretty sick of high school though, so I'm still looking forward to a change of scenery like that: different city, different people, different lessons...
