Okay, so I've realized my last topic was a pretty offensive and arrogant. I guess I'm not comfortable about a gay guy hitting on me. My reaction to him hitting on me was homophobic and I feel awful about it. I'm not homophobic and I don't have anything against the homosexual lifestyle, I guess I just fell a little uncomfortable with a guy being interested in me that way. I'm actually involved in my school's drama every year and around half of the guys I work with are gay. I get a along with them fine and consider them to be my friends, I guess a guy never hit on me before and it caught me really of guard. I know I'm not going to get raped when I go to his house tomorrow and he knows I'm not gay so he wont make a move on me. To tell you the truth I knew he wouldn't rape me, I just wanted my topic to get a bit more attention. I'm such a jerk. :( You guys are probably really looking down at me now and you have every right too. What I wrote was extremely offensive, mean, and hurtful and I apologize to anyone who feels in anyway offended.
I'm 16 and I just got my first job recently at my local Wendy's. I'm convinced that they could easily make a spin off of "The Office" about my experiences with this job. First off the customers I deal with can be absolutely hilarious to work with. I never noticed how funny and weird people are. I'll give you a few examples, this old guy came up to my register to make an order. As he approached I said "For Here?" because my manager feels that saying "For Here or To Go?" is to long and confuses customers. He looked at my name tag and responded by saying "Yes, for here Alex". He ordered two Jr. Burgers and fries and told me to make sure to tell the cook to make the food hot as if it was crucial for me to do so or his food would be cold and unappealing. After I got his order he said "Now Alex did you ask him to make my food hot?" and I responded no just because I don't like lying, I feel that by lying I could possibly end up getting in trouble. For example I found a few $20s in the dining room and immediately brought the money to my manager. What happens if the customer comes in looking for their money and it turns out there was a security camera that caught me pocketing the money. I would have lost my job plus pocketing the money wouldn't have felt right since I wouldn't have earned it. Anyway the guy yelled at me and went on and on about how his food was going to be cold now because I didn't tell the cook to make his food hot. He went and ate his food and left me alone eventually. I really do enjoy the job though. I met a friend at work. He's 20 but I don't feel like there is much of an age difference. That's because I feel much older then I am. Sometimes I can't relate to other teenagers. I'm interested in serious topics like the government and the economy and when I talk to people my age sometimes I feel like there is a maturity barrier. I also look a lot older then I am, people always ask me what I'm majoring in when I meet them. I hang out with my friend from work pretty often now, we play music together a lot and it's pretty cool because he can drive past 12 unlike most of my friends that are 17. There is the Dunkin' Donuts across the street and the girls that work there are gorgeous. My friend and I keep pursuing these girls with mixed luck. I guess I'm more professional about it, I don't feel comfortable asking girls for there numbers while were both working while my friend will ask customers for there numbers which can be really awkward if there not into him. Anyway, thanks for reading.
I recently got a part time job at Wendy's. As a 16 year old high school student I could use the extra cash. Before this job I never really realized how fortunate of a life I live. I mean I always heard stories about people that live really tough lives on television but I guess when you see something on television it doesn't always sink.
I work with a man named Darwin. He is a 23 year old Mexican man and speaks very little English. Every morning he wakes up at 5:30 AM to go and work at McDonald's at 6. He works there until noon and then goes to work at Wendy's until midnight. He never takes any breaks and he works seven days a week. He doesn't have enough time to sleep properly let alone do anything else and he still hardly makes ends meet.
Many of my colleges are in the same position as Darwin. They work inhuman hours just to be able to barely survive. They work hard hoping that there children will study hard and make something out of themselves.
So about an hour ago I decided to throw Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix into my BD player since I haven't seen the movie since it's release and once Harry got to Hogwarts all I felt was sadness. I grew up with Harry Potter. I remember being in third grade and sitting on this large carpet with the rest of my classmates while my teacher read the first book to me and I was first exposed to Harry Potter and his spectacular imaginary world. We then went on a class trip to a local movie theater to see the movie and everything looked exactly how I envisioned everything in my head. Reading the books and watching the movies brought me to this magical place.
I wanted to be friends with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. I wanted to go to there magical school. I clearly remember having a crush on Hermione when I was 8 which is pretty funny because I still have a crush on her now. We are pretty similar in age. When I think of Christmas I automatically think of Harry and Ron sitting in the dinning room playing chess in the sweaters that Ron's mom made him or the scene when Harry is outside around the Hogwarts campus with Hedwig while it is snowing.
Anyway I feel like as I get older Harry Potter's gang is getting older and overall it depresses me. I miss getting lost in Harry's world when I was young. I couldn't finish watching Phoenix. As I attempted to watch it I felt disconnected to the world I used to feel so connected to, this could be because I have a lot of on my mind and I certainly hope that is the case.
Potter's universe will never have the same effect it had on me as a young child. The doors that lead to Hogwarts have been locked.
I've got to say I'm having a great week so far. I got my first job on Monday at my local Wendy's which I'm going to start later this week, I got a 32GB iPhone 3G S in black, the girl I've been dating completely digs me, and overall I've just been enjoying life. Oh, and Entourage Season 6 started on Sunday. The first episode was awesome! How has your week been going so far?
So I'm a 16 year old high school student with a lot of time on my hands. I could really use a job. I'm not necessarily low on cash but I've been spending $40 bucks every weekend taking girls out and it adds up. I've been applying for jobs frequently and I finally got a interview at Wendy's. I know working at a fast food chain is one of the least glamorous jobs you could have but I don't really care where I working anymore, it is hard getting a job during this horrific economy, even at supermarkets and retail stores.
So in about 4 hours I have an interview for the job and I am starting to feel kind of nervous. Last year tried to get a job at a local supermarket and I didn't get it because I messed up on the interview. I told the guy I only wanted the job for the summer so he didn't hire me.
My mother is telling me to wear cacky pants and a polo shirt. I don't mind wearing a polo shirt because I wear polo shirts all the time but I never wear cacky pants. I'll wear them still but I think it is going to look obvious that I'm trying to look good for the interview. I guess that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
If any of you have any advice about how to conduct myself during a job interview please let me know.
On Sunday, July 12 the sixth season of Entourage premieres on HBO. Personally I love Entourage, I am practically addicted to the show. Most people would probably think this is because of the glamourous lives the main characters lead, that is partly true because I dream of living a glamourous like theirs when I'm older but the main reason I love the show is because of the friendship the main characters share. The bond that Vince, E, Johnny, and Turtle share is so strong and I think most viewers watch the show wishing they had similar friends or even just friends that they were as close to.
The only music game I have had over the years was Guitar Hero 2 and it ended up breaking for some reason so I returned it. After that, my friend game me his GH 2 controller for free because it only strumed down and I am left handed so I would bring it over friend's houses if we were going to play Rock Band.
When I saw Ryan's post I contemplated if I should buy the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero World Tour for $90 and with much thought I decided to order it. It isn't that $90 is that much money but I was considering buying The Beatles: Rock Band Bundle so it was a tough decision for me because I'm a huge Beatles fan. At the end of the day though these games are really mean't for those times when there are a lot of people over your house and I would be pretty nervious about those Beatles intruments getting damaged, considering how expensive they are. I don't really mind paying $90 for these intruments and GH 4, than later spending $60 on The Beatles: Rock Band. I save $100 and I get an extra game.
