Taking Sales Job At Zmax Radio!

The job search is now offically at an end! I am now (or hope to be) currently on the phone with Zmax Radio accepting a sales position with the company. I cannot be an on-air personality since I am running for office and I made it perfectly clear I understood this fact, but we both agreed that selling advertising for this website/webstation won’t be an issue.

Again, this will change nothing for me: I am still running for Supervisor Of Elections here in Lake County. It’s just now I can say I have an honest job. And if I am not elected, it is something I can easily fall back on. I still say there is nothing wrong with not having a job and running for office.

Well, see ya’ later!

Job Interview 2012

I just got off the phone, and I have an honest job interview this coming Friday.

I’m not saying yet on where I am going for the job interview or how this came about. Keeping it on the lowkey for right now. I might not be a good fit for me, so I don’t want to say anything. Let’s just say that is something I can do while running for public office. It should be interesting and fun. I’m excited!

Well, see ya’ later!

Surprise Work Day

Well, that was a pleasant surprise.

Labor Ready here in Clermont, FL called me up out of the blue and offered me a job yesterday. It seemed like Crothall needed some people and I headed right over there. I missed the first two and half hours of the shift, but I take those hours over ZERO hours any day of the week. Nice thing about working through Labor Ready, I can go collect the money I earned as soon as I get off the computer.

Since this was done through Labor Ready, I am not holding my breath for further future work. So this changes nothing for me. However I will be more to do more work if they will have me and if I am not already doing something.

Well, see ya’ later!

DragonGate Is, Indeed, Alive

I finally got word from DragonGate. If anything, I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that she’s alive. I was honestly worried she got hurt there in Italy or on her way there. I’m just thankful she’s back in my life.

You know, I just finished up Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and one of the things about love in that book is that it should be earned. I agree. She has earned my love to her, but I have yet to earn her love.

And that’s ok. I need to do her right in life and that means being able to stand on my two feet. I want her to be proud of me, like I am proud of her. Once that happens, I can really love her the way I should be able too: Looking right at her, instead of up at her (metaphorically, of course).

Anyway, I am thinking of writing a short review of Atlas Shrugged. It is really a great book and want to get down my thoughts.

Well, see ya’ later!

Money, It’s A Gas

You might have seen a few changes being made around here. That is because I am now really sick of being pennyless. So I am seeing if I can make a few bucks around here. From now on, below the fold, Music and Books I am listening and reading will be linked to Amazon so that you can buy what I am reading/listening at this very moment. I suggest you check them out.

I also have a store that I have a few items (please send suggestions) in or you can go right onto Amazon and buy stuff. I will also have stuff there to buy on the side scroll. Even if you don’t buy any of the items listed, just click on through and then buy whatever (I still get the sell).

Buy some music:

Or shop a while at Amazon. Get stuff and help a brother out.

Well, see ya’ later!

Never Forget, Never Surrender

On this day we remember not because of what happen, but because we said never again! Never give-in! Never concede! Never forget! Never surrender!

Which brings me to a related subject: I, too, am not surrendering. So I have no car right now. Big deal. I’m still alive right now and that is all that matters. Many people in this world are currently sitting in my postion and they are not giving up. What doesn’t kill me, will only make me stronger. Right?

However, I still need a car. I’ll redouble my efforts to find a job (as if I’m not already looking for one) and will have to cut back my campaigning in the near-term. I have three “must-go-to” events this month and two in October. Other than that, hell yeah I am still running for office. All this means to me, is I just have to work that much harder. I’m down, but I’m not out.

You know, I carry the Gadsden Flag with me wherever I go. It gives me the strength and the motivation to keep going. To me, it is not just a warning to others, but a call to me for action. With it, I am always moving with purpose and direction. Don’t try to get in my way when I have it with me or I will walk through you. People died carrying this flag into battle, so I will not dishonor it or them by backing down now.

Well, see ya’ later!

So *Bleeping* Bored

I am so bored, it is not funny. Still no computer and it sucks big time.

How bored am I? I’m so bored…

…That I’m thinking of joining the Army, solely to do things on Skippy’s List.

…Discovered Brighthouse’s “Free-On-Demand” channels.

…I’d take any job now. ANY. JOB.

…I’ve become a master of the card game, Solitaire.

…The pool is longer any fun.

…I have seen all the stuff on Brighthouse’s “Free-On-Demand” channels.

…Mastered Frontline Defense 2. (I’m now sick of the game, looking for ideas people.)

…Tried solving the Rubik’s Cube, but quickly grew bored.

…NOTHING’S ON TV!!!!

…Thinking of becoming an Evil Overlord (Now where did I put that list…) or maybe run for elected office. Same thing.

Well, see ya’ later!

Car Wars

Holy! Fucking! Shit!! As if I didn’t need another damn reason to get out of this fucking house!!

Ok, so a couple people come by the house earlier and offer to buy my car. Fuck, so ok I think what they offer was ok considering the thing is always on the verge of falling apart. They were willing to pay cash right on the spot and didn’t mind the problems with the car.

And shit, I don’t have any job prospects at the moment. We could put that money in a jar and used it when I had a job and get a car. We could have also saved the money that we currently spend on car insurance.

But fuck all, my grandmother has to be a bitch about the whole thing and refused to give me my damn title. The worst part about the whole thing, is that she called my Dad and they decided to double team my ass. This is the same fucking man who refuses, FUCKING REFUSES, to get involved when I call him for help when I have an argument with my Grandmother about Blake. That hurts, more so than what my Grandmother did.

Holy fucking shit, I need to get out of this goddamn house and away from these fucking people! FUUUUUCK ME!!

Well, see ya’ later!

I, Seventeen Percent

It is more brutal than you think:

The disturbing news nugget is the “underemployment” rate. This is the number of part-time workers who would like a full-time job and others who want jobs and have just given up the search. This rate held fast at 17%, which is an unacceptable number. What makes this a more unacceptable number than the 9.8% unemployment rate? These are people who want to work full time and can’t find full-time jobs. This means that these workers are making just enough money to get by, and would like to make more with a full-time job. Either that, or they have decided to give up on the job search altogether. This is not a good trend, because this number needs to fall significantly as well. In fact, I contend that this number is more important than the [unemployment] rate because these underemployed are not spending money either.

I hate the characterization that the underemployed have given up. I can’t even find a part-time job. In Florida, the unemployment rate is 11.9% and the underemployed is most likely just north of 20%. My plight gets worse, because the longer I am out of a job, the harder it is to get a job. And what really pisses me off, is that most (if not all) of the job listings out there pile on a bunch of qualifications on there it becomes almost impossible to submit a resume to them.

I have not given up searching for a job. I have given up hope of finding a job now, or in the near future. This fustrates me to no end, because I feel like a bum next to DragonGate. I want to show her I am not a bum, but how can I do that if I feel like one?

Well, see ya’ later!

I Hate Fall (Part Two)

I still hate fall, but I may have Sinusitis. In fact, I am sure of it.

I know they say you shouldn’t do any self-diagnosis on yourself, but I don’t really have any money to go to a doctor to figure out what is the problem. If things don’t clear up in a month or two (when this thing becomes chronic), I might just force myself to go a the doctor.

I honestly think the job market here in Florida is getting worse. I say this because there nothing out there. Of the few jobs that are out there, they pile so many qualifiers in there, that they make it impossible to apply for said job.

Well, see ya’ later!
