Alive. Not enjoying my stagnant life at the moment. Thinking about getting back into Livejournal.

Writing reviews for Nukezilla.com.

Writing reviews for AdventureClassicGaming.com.

Still no headway on my personal stuff. Lame.

Alive. Screwed up my back a few weeks ago, but I'm getting a lot better now...I'm off the painkillers but still take a muscle relaxer in the morning.

A fun meme that probably already made its rounds during my absence, but I still like it, and hope you all will take it if you haven't already!

current mood: pensive

A few days ago, my workplace was the victim of an armed robbery.

Thankfully, it was not during my shift. My shift was spent dealing with the aftermath. Local reporters for some reason didn't believe me when I said I wasn't working when it happened (I still don't know why), and spent an hour interviewing people who weren't around when it did happen.

I watched the report on the news that night, where they showed the (incredibly unhelpful) surveillance footage. I know things like this are shown all the time and many of us don't give it a second thought, but...it's really creepy to watch someone you know get robbed.

I find myself wondering, days later, if the company handled the situation well, at least as far as employees are concerned. My manager - who was the one involved - called me like it was any other day, asking if I wanted to pick up a few hours. Like someone had simply gotten sick or something. For the first hour I worked, I had no idea anything had happened, until a customer at the register said, "You guys had quite a scary morning! I saw all the police cars." I had to find out from a customer. Not from my manager who had called me in (I'm giving him a pass on this one), and not from my coworker (there was a period of downtime in which he could have told me). Don't employees have the right to know about something in a timely manner? I understand the need to feel safe in a workplace, but should that safety come at the expense of denial - or rather, silence?

Maybe I'm overreacting. I had a five-hour shift for chrissakes, someone probably would have told me sooner or later. But shouldn't someone be given that option? Maybe not as bluntly as "Hey, we've just been robbed; can you come work while we deal with the fallout?" but let me know what's going on!

On a side note: I laughed in my head during part of the story, and I will forever burn in Hell because of it. Maybe it was in the way my coworker said it; I don't know. But he said, "They held him at gunpoint and told him to give them all the money in the registers and the safe...and a Wii." I'm likening this to robbing a McDonald's and asking for a Big Mac. It just seems ridiculous to me. Am I a bad person for finding humor in that?

Quicky Update

November 17th, 2009 (05:36 pm)

Still alive. Trying (and failing) to write, as always.

Had a job, lost it, and am now working seasonal work at GameStop. It's a start.

Currently vacationing in Scottsdale, Arizona, and loving the weather...though I fly home tomorrow to what is apparently an epic rainstorm.

Does this even count as an update?

August 3rd, 2009 (02:12 am)

Alive. Functioning. Buying one of those tiny computers on which I will do nothing but write, as I realize that I get distracted by all the other stuff on my computer.

Working tech-support. Who knew?

I've dropped ten pounds. On a related note, I've started biting my nails again.

Mmkay, everyone. I finally caved and got a Twitter account.

Yeah, I know.

Here's the thing: I don't want to be following the lives of shallow celebrities. So I need people from my darling f-list to comment to this entry with their Twitter names.

Me? You can hit me up at http://www.twitter.com/themindisacity

Insomnia blows.

May 25th, 2009 (04:40 am)

It's almost 5:00 AM.

I'm still awake.

Furthermore, I've been in bed for the past several hours.

This is becoming a bit of a trend...maybe I should see someone about this.

Anyone have any sort of sleeping advice?
