Hello and thank you for reading at least this far. Over the last few years I have written a few blog pieces from the perspective of an employee within existing business or as a candidate of a potential employer. In my many years of being an adult I have had the pleasure (sarcasm) of going through the hiring process countless times. Unlike most people, I don’t fret about the interview(s). Yes the interview is the equivalent of a sales person getting their foot in the door to pitch their product; in this case I am the salesperson and I am pitching the product (myself) to the company that in theory needs me. By the time the interview is happening, I’ve already done my due diligence and found out as much about the company as Google and their company website can provide me. Also by this time, I am confident in knowing that at least on a baseline level, I have some (if not all) of the experience items on the company’s wish list of skills for the position. Once you qualify to be in a room with a recruiter or a person of importance with said company, it’s a whole other level and let the interviewing games begin: Continue reading “The Hiring Process…the Last Part”

Good morning and welcome to June 5th 2018. What’s news and interesting? Do you know Bill Gates? Asking for a friend.
You really thought I was going to say cheese didn’t you? C’mon be honest. To be above board here, I thought about it. Continue reading “Cutting the…”
Hello! Today is May 22nd 2018 A.D.
As of the writing of this blog post I have seen up through season 7 episode 1 of The Game of Thrones HBO series. There are six more episodes on the DVDs at home if I recall correctly. For the avid fans, you are probably like “what the heck is taking you so long to finish those?” While I do enjoy the series, I will admit I find the seasons to be a grueling grind at times. So often the show’s writers revel in killing off characters, after it took so much effort for me to finally appreciate them for their badness or goodness. It is reasonable to understand that the loss of a notable character creates drama and impact, but sometimes the deaths and innumerable weddings tend to blend together in an inevitable conveyor belt process that chafes just as pressing exposed skin against a cycling belt sander ribbon.
Good afternoon and welcome!

For the unsuspecting others who landed here via the hands of fate (or a search engine), you may be in for a treat! Or possibly just in for a head-scratcher of a time. Continue reading “Random Things at Random Times”

Hello and Happy Friday!
First off thank you to the many dedicated readers of mine, either by choice or accident, who have continued to check in on my blog this month. Thank you, thank you! With the extra time prepping for work trips and other time obligations, the time to post on my blog has been scarce. With that said I have a topic for today!
Never grow up, just don’t do it. It’s entirely a trap. Bait-and-switch. A punch to the face while sleeping. No matter what great things you think there are in being adult, it’s just not worth it. Yeah there are a few decent but elusive perks (censored) but the mountainous loads of BS you have to endure for those precious few perks will only turn you quickly to a life of vice, bitterness and unrelenting sarcasm.
Peace. Friday the 13th style.
Hello and greetings! Today is Tuesday and it’s a foggy, fuzzy day just like yesterday. And no I am not making a visual assessment of the weather conditions of Loch Ness; although it would be cool to check out Nessie’s home at least once before I am rendered into a pile of dust.

Good morning patrons of Friday! Good day!
I am sure that most of you are like me today and stumped by the lack of Wiki pages or enshrinement websites to the late Mahlon W Kenney. Continue reading “Spiral me this”
Hello and welcome. Today is the second Wednesday in March 2018 so if you have a calendar you can probably narrow today’s date down based on deductive reasoning. For the first time in several weeks I feel as though I can catch my breath. No I have not been on a treadmill non-stop or doing a ton of exertion-based exercises. I am meaning from a figurative point of reference, I can mentally exhale and be OK for a minute. Continue reading “Social Anxiety”
