All About auron11022
I'm pro-do what you want. If you want to worship God through a personal relationship, through a church, through meditation, through nature, whatever, I'm cool with that. On the flip side I'm cool if you don't. However, I hate when my family forces me into this stuff. First it was confirmation, now it is marriage prep. If we want to get married in the church, and she does, then we have to do it. It sucks.
I've been working 60-80 hour weeks for 5 months. That doesn't count 12 hours a week worth the commuting. I haven't been on here at all.
Not a good reason for ignoring your blogs, but the reason none the less. Actually, it is a good reason, but whatever.
I hear a lot about how my generation feels more entitled than those of the past. That is wrong. We do feel very entitled, but so do all the others. We just feel entitled for different reasons. I feel entitled because I work longer, work harder and produce better results than the boomer in our office. The baby boomer feels entitled because he's been doing this for many many more years and has more expertise.
What makes my feelings of entitlment worse than his and by extension, our feelings worse than theirs? I have more responsibilities, produce more and achieve better results. Is it wrong that I believe I deserve to be compensated in the same way or even more? Why?
Before people start blathering on about how my generation feels entitled, maybe they should take a look at what entitled means. Just because you feel entitled because of your experience doesn't make you any better than me when I feel entitled because I produce more.
Older workers are just pissed that their lazy asses are being out performed by my generation, and instead of working harder (or smarter) they complain about my generation either receiving or thinking they should receive better treatment.
And yes, I know I'm generalizing... that's exactly my point. Don't complain about me doing exactly what you're doing by calling my generation the entitlement generation.
Boo-yah, back to 6 12's in the morning!
1. Chalk talk has the potential to be really cool for the blogging community. All you soapbox fans better support this.
2. I came *this* close to quitting this site completely.
3. Dragon Age 2 is not nearly as bad as everybody made it out to be. I suppose that is the good thing about playing a game several years after release, you don't get caught up in everybody's hype. It is nothing compared to DAO, but hey, nothing could be.
4. Many awesome users left in the last few months and I almost joined them. I'm sticking around for now because chalk talk seems like the blogging community at least gets a tiny bit of attention now. Due to everybody leaving (and some huge changes in my work schedule) I have not been reading many blogs or producing any. That won't change for a while.
I'm working 6 days a week 10-11 hours a day with a 1 hour (each way) commute. No time for anything. Fiance is working 3 12 hour shifts a week, which sometimes overlaps with my day off. Very lame.
I hope I didn't miss anything major around here.
Tried out Fallout New Vegas. Not a fan. I barely finished Fallout 3, so I don't know why I thought I might like New Vegas, but I didn't.
