Here’s to another random blog entry!
Okay, since I get work every two months, and the shifts last about a week and a half, sometimes more, I have too much time in between. It’s been driving me nuts. I just don’t know what to do, this weather is also influencing what I can do outdoors. I wish it was warmer out. But there isn’t much that can be done about it. Dress warmer, efficiently, exercise more. Maybe even game more, aside from gamer’s itch, I could be making use of that Wii or Xbox 360 I came across, but lack the controllers for one, the battery pack/unit for the other.
Hate staying at home during bad/undesirable weather, what more can I do? I have to keep thinking this shit over every single hour of every day. That and the downness I feel when i’m not kept busy. Downright depressing shit that sucks the energy and encouragement/enthusiasm out of me.
I do have another thing to finally talk about in the next blog entry, but that will be on a later date and time. It’ll be the best thing to get off of my chest and into the public domain.
I could take on more temporary work (best option, for my own good) up until that time approaches, more or less the morning/day shift. I have to keep using my time and energy in a non-wasteful manner , to stay productive in a way, to stay positive. After all, I have to stay active and keep my mind healthy, or i’ll go crazy in a sense. Now I don’t need that happening. I don’t need to do something stupid and lose everything.
Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this. Didn’t feel like putting it into a video blog. Writing feels better at this time.

Why not? I/us people with disabilities could really put allot of effort into working as a volunteer leading up to eventual paid employment. Temporary work can also be a very good thing, since it’s basically limited in how long the employment would last and it’ll really help the disabled gain experience in that area of skills they could put to use in jobs of the same area that are long term.
I’m basically saying, I would gladly work as a volunteer for a company, be it general labor (or work with computers) or anything I am able to do or handle without making a mistake that affects the company/plant I’m hired to work at. Even if it’s temporary work, I could do it. I’m going to be actively looking at all sources of employment/job boards that I can possibly find and sign up for.
I’m really wanting to exceed my own expectations to the best of my abilities and strengths, not focusing on the weaknesses and issues that affect me or anybody else that has similar issues, be it mentally or physically.
I wish employers would give people the chance and focus on their strengths and abilites, evaluate them and see how well, how good they work, including the amount of effort they put towards the work/tasks they’re expected to complete or at least try to complete successfully without much difficulty.
I’m hoping to find work very soon, I really am glad to write this up and to give people insight they might not be able to find elsewhere on the internet that WASN’T written by anyone with a disability.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. I hope I inspired you to think outside of the box.

I’m writing this blog post because, so far, each and every job I have tried to apply for/have applied to, has not gotten back to me. I haven’t received a single phone call, e-mail or anything as a response. Nothing.
What the heck does it take for anybody to even give me a chance to get/be hired to work as a general laborer in your company’s production department, shipping and receiving area, or warehouse where I can, to the best of my abilities and strengths, lift and move anything that I can handle, each and every single day, while earning an honest decent minimum hourly wage.
I have the strength, I bike to and from my home in any weather, be it windy, rainy, stormy, snowy, it doesn’t matter. I can lift quite a bit, even if I look frail and thin. Never underestimate somebody’s strength or abilities, regardless if they have autism, aspergers, down’s syndrome or any other disability. They can and will be able to work, they should have a RIGHT to work, because they are just like anybody else.
I also have a disability and in some areas, it affects me socially. I have no shame in admitting it, in fact, I’m proud of who I am, as a human being who has every single right anybody else has. If people with disabilities can work, why don’t people hire them into the workforce? Why leave them out? I just don’t understand why employers are so selective or favoring over others who don’t have any disability.
If a person can walk, move, exercise, talk, hear, see, comprehend, listen and communicate slightly differently than anybody else, THEY CAN STILL WORK. I don’t know why nobody will hire me. I haven’t ever done anything illegal or wrong, I haven’t ever gotten arrested, or went to prison. I have no criminal record. There shouldn’t be a reason why I CANNOT be hired or get hired for any job that I am capable of doing.
Sure, I don’t have a high school or college/university degree, that was because I was in a special education “treatment” centre that held me back from regular schooling for almost all of my life. Maybe that is the reason why I haven’t gotten hired, because maybe that “school” has been involved with some illegal activities in the past and then got charged for something criminal? I don’t know. I haven’t found anything like that on the internet or any physical newspaper.
If only some employer would hire me, I would do the best that I possibly can to ensure I followed all directions in the warehouse or general laborer’s area I was to be hired in. I don’t believe in arriving late to work, I believe in being punctual, on time, ahead of the game.
Thanks for your understanding. This is serious, there is no games, or comedy involved here, nothing funny either.

Ahh, the wordpress app, such an awesome invention for the blackberry and other smartphone platform user. Well, besides that, the pest control was in to clean the place out of all the roaches that did invade the place. A heavy cleaning for a heavy infestation. 95% of them are all DEAD.
There is still a bunch running around, but they’re going to be squashed one by one. As I was writing this line, I crushed 3, tossed a few outside. I also burned up a bunch of dead weeds, since they were the spiny type. Who would want a seed with spikes on it, razer sharp ones, stuck to their ass? I sure wouldn’t. And then to sit down and jump right back up like “WHAT THE FUCK?!?!???!!!??!!!” No, I didn’t think so.
They did make a fantastic snap, pop, crackle sound as the stiff wood burned down into embers, then ashes. They’ll all be dumped into the garden later on. The good part, no more weeds. The other thing, it smelled so good.
Donations, hell yeah!! There is a few boxes of plastics and glassware, including utensils to be carted off to the nearest donations dropoff location. Including some curtains and shit I don’t need anymore. Let somebody else take it, amirite? 🙂
Besides that, the lockers are getting more stuff put into them within a few days, following the donations. I’ll be glad to get it all packed in. Soon, that’ll be gone through and disposed of before we finally move further south-east.
Oh shit, the bananas I bought, THEY BE CRAWLIN’ WITH MAGGOTS!!! I had to dispose all 3 dozen. I feel so… Bad. Okay, that was very irresponsible of me to waste food like that! I’ll NEVER EVER do that again!! Next time, I’ll eat those damn things within two weeks. I don’t need to see anything get wasted, except me every second or third weekend. 😉
Ahh, the AAA sized battery is done. 7 hours on the charger, at 700 mAh being it’s capacity. It’s an alkaline, it was recharged over 50 times before. No leaks, no shorts, no reverse-polarity either. It’s now being drained on the LED lamp, a one bulb unit with a step-up circuit. It lasted about 36 hours the last time I fully drained a NiMH cell.
Okay, enough of this, time for me to enjoy a tea!! Peace! Thanks for taking the time to read this, hit the Like and Share buttons to spread this post around! 🙂
