Sleep? Not Really In My Vocabulary.

The best thing about working from 9pm-5am? The co-workers. Times are hard right now for everybody. The States are at a stage in which you have to take whatever  job you can get. You have to have some major discipline to work a graveyard shift. Not just regular discipline, mental discipline. You have to be committed, dedicated to the job. You also need to have a open-mind. It’s one thing to go to your “normal” 9-5 and just go with the motions if somebody is having a bad day. In the graveyard world? You have no idea what you are getting yourself into. People have already had problems during the day AND they still haven’t got to work yet. Dealing with surprises EVERY NIGHT has helped me have a open-mind about people.

Normally, my first paragraph sets up the rest of my entry, not this time. Honestly, I just wanted to show love to my graveyard counterparts. It’s really hard to do that. It’s  really, REALLY difficult when you have two jobs. You are working around the clock, averaging about four hours of sleep per day. As I think about it, if I only had one job, I probably would average four hours of sleep anyway.

My blog, my rules.  My friend told me that I post a lot of alcohol pictures. Forgive me if I enjoy a tasty beverage. Want to know something? I got home a bit early this morning from work and I had a small glass of…

If you really want to get creative, try this with Apple Juice. I tried it before and I couldn’t feel my limbs after a while.

(I may enjoy alcohol a bit too much.)

For the record, that was about 2:30am. It’s called “bar just closed I have booze at my place”on the weekend.

I’m going back a bit, with TWO VIDEOS. Rock The Bells is this weekend and I can’t go unfortunately. My friend is going and I’m jelly (Short for jealous, like it?). The lineup is literally a blast from the past. Should be awesome. Three people I really wanted to see.

Numero one, he (and the special guest)  is still going strong….

Nas performing should be pretty good.

The main person I really wanted to see???

DMX is very talented and it’s unfortunate that he is always getting in trouble. Now that I think about it, I hope he makes it this weekend.

Can’t wait to go home and take a nap. I’m more of a nap person.

Tearful Thursday, Life Must Go On.

You know what happens everyday? Losing people. It happens in a variety of ways: death, moving, break-up, etc. In this case, I’m losing a co-worker. JW, no need for the whole name, has decided it was time to move on to the next chapter in his life. We all have been in that situation, even if we didn’t want to (unfortunately it’s mandatory). I believe we all have at least one person that can help steer us in the right direction (that isn’t a family member). We have a person that we can talk to in the time of need (also not a family member). This is the second time in the past two years, maybe three, that I’ve gotten the short end of the stick. Despite my emotional issues on the subject, I know that they are happy (I know my former boss lady(ESP) is).

………Again with the initials!!!! I’m just protecting them, it’s called respect……

Mini breakdown:

JW: showed me the ropes of the manual labor in the Promo world. I was HIS outlet when he had to vent. He helped me out when I was in need. He was my opposite. You know the good and evil conscience that’s on your shoulder? He was the good one, by far!

ESP: THE  person that hired me in the media world. She also let me vent to her when I was going through a rough patch. Time and time again she checks up on me as I search for that elusive full-time job.

Both people are class-acts, helped me out when it wasn’t in the job description. I lost co-workers, but kept friends.

         Life will go on and they will always be here, I just have to keep reminding myself.

This is the part where I’m suppose to serenade you with pictures of them, but I’m not, won’t. Who knows, maybe in the future.

My current mood?

i'm in a glass case of emotions gif

I can never get tired of Anchorman.

This video is about a few years back. Me posting this defeats the purpose of this “Throwback Thursday” post. At the end of the day though, rules are made to be broken.

Somehow, someway I’m getting to that point this weekend haha.

The Weekend…One Day Away

Can you believe it? It is only Thursday. This week is going by slow,  nope, “at a snail’s pace” sounds  better. It didn’t help that I had yesterday AND Monday off. Monday was already scheduled, it’s my usual thing to do (I work crazy hours).

Yesterday, I went to Oakland (notice the Bay Area theme as of late?) to watch my Los Angeles  Angels of Anaheim (still hate the name) take on the Oakland A’s. I don’t know why, but, my Angels just can’t win (lost 9-8) in Oakland. It’s the House of Horrors for them.  For the record, I hate… DISLIKE A’s fans!!!. They are so horrible, but these are the same people I hang out with on Sunday’s during the Fall to watch the Raiders play. I don’t know what to think anymore.

I’m going to mix it up a bit, take it WWWWAAAAYYYYYY BACK!!!

Want a throwback drink?

When was the last time you had this? I never had it, way before my time. I do know people who have had it before. I expect them to text me, telling me about the good ol’ days!

And now, the video. This post has a Bay Area feel (I’m sorry, I’ll try to cut it down), so how about some Bay Area natives?

Stay thirsty my friends, it’s Thursday.

P.S: Shout out to the new partner in crime, The Red Head. Check out her blog, it’s a good read.

Throwback Thursday

The title speaks for itself. What I try to do is “Throwback” to MY generation. Almost every song was a good song back then (1990-2002(ish)). Artists were never really heard of (Craig Mack < Biggie Smalls) because they couldn’t stand out. Lastly you get the one hit wonder. The one hit wonder that had a funny song,  if anything (I thought it was funny).

Ladies and Gentlemen, your wonderful video:

When was the last time you heard this song? How about seen the video?

Did you spot the cameo appearance? I forgot all about that guy lol.

Until we meet again folks~!~!

Throwback Thursday, with a twist.

Two month hiatus from blogging, I’m aware and I apologize. The negatives of being responsible is staying focused and trying to cope with pain and  trouble. I’m alive and that’s all that matters. I have two videos to share.

First, the twist:

Second, the Throwback Video:

Might as well show some love for R. Kelly. If I’m not mistaken he is still recovering from throat surgery. He just came out with another album as well, entitled “Write Me Back”, make sure you give it a listen.

P.S. :

Mr. Robert Kelly, if you are reading this, I am still waiting for the rest of “Trapped In The Closet”
