Although my job pays on average 12 -15 dollars and hour, I don't think it's worth it. Firstly, it is not stable. Sometimes I stay there for 8 hours and get maybe 30 or 40 dollars for the night. I really hate that. Secondly, it's waitressing. I hate waitressing and I work there for most days of the week now. Third, (although this is a minor issue) they keep asking me to smile 24/7, but I'm an honest person. If I don't like something, my face and my body language will let you know. I do not…Continue
Getting money is easy right now so my challenge of the week will not be about obtaining money. I will actually have three challenges. One is to ace that job interview with the Dean of Computer Science Department at my university. The second challenge is to produce artwork. And the third is to finally post a vlog.

Uni is actually nice. They have a place where they will fix your laptop for you for free which is better than I can say for the…Continue
Ever since I busied myself with work, I've had little time for other things that I would like to do such as volunteering, projects, blog post, vlogs, and some hobbies of mine. Working sucks. I used to tell people that we have everything so there is no reason to be unhappy. Truth is, we do have everything, but we have no time to enjoy what we have because we are working all the time to pay bills, to stay afloat financially, and loads of other reasons. Working hours and hours in a cubicle. No…Continue
Lately, I've been feeling like I've been through a rollercoaster of emotion. In other words, I've been feeling emotionally strained. Maybe it's how I think too much about things. I don't know source of these emotions that I feel. So I decided to keep track of the emotions I feel on a daily basis. I would feel a little bit of joy and sometimes sadness, which are dominated by anxiousness. A majority of them fall under Anger: irritation, bitterness, frustration.
Anger is tiring.…Continue
