I am a self proclaimed vitamin junkie. It has been my way of live for several years. It originally started as a way to feed myself cheaply. I hated cold cereal. I mean I liked it as a child or a kid but as I got older it seemed to have lost it's appeal. Which is strange, because due to health issues there are all of these brands or kinds of cold cereal that are a lot healthier to eat and you find that adults and much older people are now returning to cold cereal. I suppose I could just eat the grains and nuts or what have you in a cereal bar, but then what would I eat for lunch? Also there needs to be more "on the run" diversity with cold cereals, yes they make the snack bars, but hows about those heart healthy cereals mixed with nuts or even one with oatmeal sold in breakfast bars with several in a box or package? The only thing is that the breakfast bars would have to actually amount to an entire bowl of cereal and not just a snack, otherwise what is the sense of eating something when you are still hungry afterwards? Nutrition is one thing but if you continuously go hungry, then you are more likely to eat foods that satisfy your hunger or appetite. The vitamins generally remove much of the hunger and last a lot longer than just meal to meal. For instance I could take my large quantity of vitamins early in the morning and not eat until later in the evening and not become sluggish or feel as if I am starving. As a result, this approach has saved me money that I didn't have to spend on food initially. Over the years vitamins due to their popularity have increased in price along with everything else but they still are a lot cheaper when looking to take them instead of eating a meal; because the cost of everything has gone up and salaries just do not keep up with the cost of living. When on a budget one may consider vitamins and the health value that they have. Once you start taking vitamins you spend less money and stay healthier...
I often ask myself, would I be successful if I were allowed to make my own decisions? That is one Duh, of a question. Of course I would. But we live in a world where people like making decisions for others who are really able to make decisions for themselves. We have to ask ourselves? When do we get be be grown or adult enough to do what we want to do? What really bothers me is the insecurity of others who have yet to find that aspect of themselves that yields salvation. In a way you have to decide what works best for you. But to know that is the decision you have to make is not the easiest thing to figure out. Truthfully, many people just take it for granted that, that road of suffering that had been walked cleared the way. It did, but when one gets "hampered" by the doings of others, in that the other individuals do not make a way of restitution for themselves, then that road is not as clear because it's hard to see once under the bus. The ignorance, stupidity and greed of others is usually what hinders a regular life. Things don't have to be that difficult, but when you have those that want to rely on others for their own salvation and time and time again they do nothing but hamper your life; there will come a time when all will rise and somehow or another the decisions will be yours to make and success will follow...
I suppose we can't do without them. As they are the go between between the employee and the employer. I try to look at this in a good way because in the instance of working temp you can actually work a job and move on without being bothered once the assignment ends. It sounds cold but if you actually think about it the "employer" does not provide benefits of any sort so you just show up for work and get paid for the days that you do. Then once the assignment ends it just does. There are no 401k's to negotiate, health insurance or being paid severance or for vacation and other days off not taken. So an employer can save a lot of money here; although temp agencies make money from the employer who you currently work for. The thing here that I am asking myself is, is it the money or the principal aspect of employment that makes companies seek temp agencies? A company may want individuals who show up to work and no questions asked with regard to paid time off and other company expenses. If you do not work you don't get paid and this appeals to many employers. Which is probably why they seek out temps because for those people who are actual company employees, they get paid when they take days off. Also, company bonuses and 401k contributions for the most part leave temps out of the loop. To be honest and if I had a choice as everyone should, if I were offered a temp job working in a office, you know with a real desk and cubicle and all surrounded by computers and monitors and stuff to do as opposed to a permanent or hired by an employer job doing ekg's, holter monitors, event recorders,urine, labs, by the way I did more stuff as well; what job do you think I would consider? You're correct, it would be the temp job because once you get out of the medical office you just want to escape somewhere else as fast as possible. It's just a preference, there are somethings I have no passion for and that job was one of them. I don't take lunch partly because I'm not a people person and along with that it would be like patients coming in to a physicians office. I simply lost my appetite. Anyways, that area of work is not my calling and as much as I despise Westchester, I don't think I'd like to work there again. I don't want to be "typecast" into a certain job or skill because I was good at it but I'd really like to try other interests and passions once this ends, like working in a law firm setting, how bout a career in it? Why would that be too much to ask, I mean I'm intelligent enough and kind of cute to look at when I was doing all of the other nonsense? Even if it means I would temp for many a years to come, I would just attribute it to being "typecast" and yes, I just think about the money, after all why do we work?
I guess we should be happy that they come along. I mean it's supposed to be your day to do whatever you want. For some birthday's are just a reminder that you are that much older and instead of going out to party until the wee hours in the morning, perhaps you should stay in and relax and get more of that much needed sleep so you don't wear yourself out. I was never into celebrating my birthday since it would come along around the first day of school. Think about it, I would get up just to go to a place where teachers didn't think much of you and I wasn't offended by this because often times the feeling was mutual. These people had no calling they just needed a paycheck and as I got older as a result of more birthday's I would also realize that I didn't exactly have a calling but I was in need of a paycheck. This was about the only thing we had in common. As a result I never really celebrated my birthday because I was usually getting ready for school and I had to have it all together just to be there. In my younger years, I went to school in Mount Vernon, New York as a result of moving from the Bronx. Anyone that knows the Mount Vernon school system knows the word post-school depression. It's real since what they teach you is designed to make your life a reality-they speak or relate to one biblically. Yes, this was public school doing this. So you often wonder who their influences were because these people had a thing about determining a persons life, just really depressing. But I wasn't going for that nonsense. I was going to give them their economy one way or another. I got up and went to class, but Mount Vernon had a hype of their own or at least the teachers did that if you though about it now you would have just brought toilet paper to do your homework assignments with. Having gone through this birthday's aren't usually much fun and of course once you get out of school or once you finally do then you are usually in need of a paycheck and have to become employed somewhere. Those who can't do teach. somebody came up with that phrase and probably for good reason. Well, how else would you get the money to go out and celebrate?
