you became a good worker....

People always talk shit about menial laborers "wasting time" and "slacking" on construction jobs or working street repair etc., but the institutionalized slacking essentially mandated by corporate america is far more damaging...

funny thing, i used to work for these korean grocery owners. it was always more, more, more, more, faster, faster, faster. there was never a lack of work to do.

but you know, owners watch their businesses like hawks, unlike "managers" from some anonymous remote enterprise.

That's the thing! Owners, people who are actually invested in the day to day workings of their business, want and love hard workers.

It is the corpos, whose entire work goal is to jump to a new company every 3 years with a bigger title and a bigger salary, and who could really give a fuck about the overall "health" of the business they are working in, that created this corporate shitstem I have been describing.

Not all US corporations work this way, but so so many do it is sad.

Yeah, but, you work in a library, right? Or no, you used to. Still, you're in academia. You're surrounded by books, man.

Rob, go to the book store. There should be one nearby. Even if you don't buy anything, it may be good therapy for you.

that's what i do before work to relax a bit... come to the library on campus and read or hit the computer (like now; no internet at home til tomorrow and my phone is annoying to be on all night) and it's super soothing.

Yeah thats why in California, itself an OPEC level producer.. has shut down several refineries "for maintenance" and artificially rose the at the pump prices by 25% IN A SINGLE WEEK

I love that duck.

They say he was trapped in a world he never made! Haven't we all, at one time or another, known the feeling? The Duck doesn't always keep his cool and yet somehow he's still cool.

broke my collarbone. waiting to get a date for operation.

can't work, can't do music (except for like... drone music). depression slowly creeping in.
had to cancel several "well paid" gigs. festival we're organizing is 2 weeks ahead and orga-work with one hand is a pain in the ass. every email takes me hours and a pain pill.
next time, I'll try to break a leg instead.

oh shit! that sucks.

there are voice commands/speech recognition/dictation you could use though. not a panacea but it can help. they have them in windows/mac/ios/android...

alright, no need to answer, i know it hurts... but maybe check it out with your one good arm.

here a couple of useful links maybe to get you started

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...#1TC=windows-7

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202584

about the work & cooking... sorry can't help. maybe time to develop meals you can eat with one hand... like the primanti bros sandwich (legend says it was made for injured/disabled steel workers)

 


anyway, here a couple of related links. sorry i can't do more. but maybe a place to get started.
