Feeling Great - #001 Blog Beginnings

MY FIRST BLOG - AKA - Supreme Boredom

HELLO WORLD

Why hello there my fellow gamer-guys and gamer-gals, it is I - OverLord00 - here to just say hello, hi, and hey to anyone and everyone on this wonderful website. I've never been much of a blogger or social networker for that matter. Even now as I am typing this I wonder, WHY? What reason is there?

To be honest I don't know. I'm just bored and wanted to do something. What does a blog even consist of?

MY BLOG WILL PROBABLY BE

  • Stupid Internet Pictures

  • Stupid Internet Memes
  • Me Rambling About Things (Stupid Things)

WORK LIFE

Work is a bitch. We all know it. We all hate it. Sadly it's just one of the monotonous everyday life things that a very large percentage of us have to deal with. I wish I could tell you all that I work at a steady, rewarding work environment. Great salary, 401k, tons of benefits, 2 week paid vacation every 6 months. The sad, realistic fact is that I don't. I work at a fast food restaurant. I have worked in fast food since I was 16, what was once just a few hours per week to pay for gas and the occasional video game, slowly turned into a way of life.

I am not completely depressed by this for 2 reasons

  1. Having a source of income at all in this country is something to hold dearly.
  2. College life isn't made for everyone.

Now I don't work at McDonald's or Burger King, nothing that commercial or that large. I, for the last 6 years, have worked at a local family owned fast food restaurant. Some might argue that might be worse, but I don't think so. One piece of information that I felt I have gained from this, is that it is really hard to make it as a small business. Like.. really hard. I gained a large amount of respect for anyone that goes into business for themselves and actually strives to be successful. I think a good analogy would be like raising a child. (not that I have any)

You can,

A) Nurture and care for your child. Teach it valuable lessons and keep a very close eye on him, so they don't get sick or unwell. Never give up on your child, it takes work to be a good parent.

Or B) Neglect your child, because you have immature feelings of self righteousness. You think because you are the parent and being a parent is easy you can sit back and the child raise itself.

Maybe that analogy sucks, but I think you get what I'm saying. Takes tons of coordinating, teamwork, and man hours to be successful. I no longer work at that little fast food restaurant. One of the 3 owners sold his share, and opened up his own store across town. Not is spite or anger, but for a chance of his own success, not riding the coattails of his father or his 2 brothers. He asked me to come with him, help him open up and eventually manage his store for him.

I was really hesitant at first, "ME?" I asked internally. "Me manage a store?, me act as a boss?" I can't help but feel that youth is a major reason I fill myself with sooo much self doubt. "I don't know if I can do it." "I don't know if it is something I will be good at." "I am scared."

Then my boss says to me, "OverLord00 (lol), I wouldn't begin to ask someone who couldn't do it and do it well." So I gained some confidence right then and there.

As of this writing right now, the store isn't open. Later tonight or tomorrow morning we are shooting to be open for business.

I guess this turned into me rambling about work.

TL;DR: HELLO GIANTBOMB COMMUNITY

Next time maybe I'll get to mention some other stuff about games n whatnot
