Living the Graveyard shift Life

So I never really see much about living the life of a 3rd shift worker, graveyard shift, you know the Vampiric life so here’s my input!

  1. Stay alive! Caffeine is absolutely necessary. For a lot of folks it IS EXTREMELY hard to adapt, by extremely I mean some fall asleep literally standing up!
  2. Get a calendar! Some folks, like myself, tend to forget what the exact day is. Wether it is the date or the day in general.
  3. Find a partner that has a similar schedule! If your single, your going to want to find someone who has the same schedule. It is VERY hard to stay awake during the day depending on what you do.
  4. Set a “Nap” schedule or “Sleep Time”. Considering our vampiric life, its very hard to socialize. Unless you can find some 24hr joints great! If not, well you may just be doomed… unless you set yourself a nap schedule or sleep time! You can’t necessarily expect friends or family to adapt to your time so figure it out! Wether its sleeping earlier or waking up earlier, socializing is a skill some of us vampires lack.
  5. If you have small children, forget sleep! One thing I do believe is if you have small children, your going to want to find a 9-5 job possibly 9-3 if they, your employer, will work with you. I believe its best to raise your kids be in their life. My father did overnight work and I can assure you, growing up without( mentally not physically ) a father is hard. He would always get home around 5-8 p.m. and sleep from 9 at night until 3 in the morning then back to work he would go. Days off he was stuck to an overnight schedule too so three of us really just did our own thing growing up.
  6. Alarms alarms alarms! I know we all hate these pesky annoyances but they are ABSOLUTELY necessary. To be honest… I use a stock tone in my phone of a dog barking. Most people use a radio which is fine and dandy but I have noticed they are VERY easy to sleep through. So far the dog barking, has woken me up almost each and every time.
  7. Set your alarm clock/ alarm device across the room! Most people grab or smack their device quiet. Most have a tendency to hit the snooze button several times. It’s ok to do if your alarm is set a few hours before the time you have to be in but do not get stingy! One day you will regret it.
  8. Eat healthy and right! As doctors have said it’s not smart to eat right before sleep because your body needs to digest so not fully digesting could tack on a few pounds. You should always allow time to properly digest a meal before sleep. No one want’s that extra weight.
  9. Find something to do! Always keep busy because in no time, you will develop a lousy eating habit. You will snack obsessively craving any junk food you can. Some say it’s because of depression, some say boredom, either way, it’s a fact you may find yourself excessively snacking which will also pack on some extra pounds. You wont find many folks that have the same schedule as you so plan accordingly!
  10. As a final key, take care of yourself mentally. I can not tell you mentally how hard it is living the lifestyle of a vampire. For me every day is a new struggle. Between proper sleep ( lack of blackout curtains ) or the fact that not many around me are on MY schedule, sure the people I work with are but honestly, they are work associates. You should never let work life interfere with your personal life. Things will spin around and become very hard to manage. I would never date someone from work either, a key role is never mix business with pleasure, it NEVER ends will. There you have it folks, there is my take on living the vampiric life. Remember, sunglasses, highest UV sunblock, and stay out of direct sunlight! Until next time!

Lady Karma

So, many folks out there think Karma is a Myth. Let me be the bearer of bad news and explain how Karma is certainly not a myth and when she strikes it most certainly isn’t pleasant!

 So about a year and two days ago exactly, I was forced to leave an ex girlfriend. She was a little crazy as well as her family, and by crazy I mean I tried politely breaking it off and she ended up slamming her face into her steering wheel crying begging and pleading me not to go. Now, I didn’t have a game plan but I was concocting one along the way.

So the next day after her literal freak out incident, she went to the hospital because her nose wouldn’t stop bleeding. Her father, whom I’ve had several quarrels with because he wanted to sit around and have everyone else pay for him as he was still physically able to work, kept answering her phone when she was at the hospital so I kept hanging up. I literally never wanted to deal with him as he never cared for anyone but himself.

Anyways before me calling, I was at work and my friend Evan kept ringing my phone off the hook, before I started ringing her phone off the hook he asks me who this “Nick character is” so I told him it was her sisters boyfriend. He proceeds to tell me he’s threatening him and I through conversation saying he’s going to “Fuck us up” well my hot head I was waiting for it. I’m a short fuse and when you talk to my friends who have nothing to do with this and threaten me I step up to the plate. 

Anyways on to my point, so it’s been a year, I’ve been single, not even a few months after I left I get a message from my friend. “Yo is this Him and Her?” My friend asks about my ex and a friend I used to house. “Is that a joke is that seriously fucking him!?” I said after finding out my friend is now with my ex the one who has no feelings for any animal or any human. She’s like a succubus. Back to the point. Well apparently it was. After that him and his friends start messaging me threatening me and all that nonsense so I blocked them and him from Facebook to prevent any other drama as I’m getting on with my life and I’d rather not be held back.

  A few months pass and so far nothing… Then I hear, “Yo Shawn, her mom just died of a heart attack” said my friend. (Also her family were involved with the animal thing as well as the destruction of some of my belongings after leaving them in a yard full of grass out in the weather ) so bam, one hit of karma which sucks but I never stand between her and her methods. Then time goes by again.

My friend contacts me again, “Yo we are neutral about this but I just spoke to him, apparently her father won the lottery 800,000 and after that he’s saying this is “My house” and he wants him out and he bitched about a 23$ electric bill and he wants to talk to you about this and wants to know what stuff in a detailed list she still has of yours”. So I am thinking, hmm that’s funny… He goes on “apparently dad wants to take her and her sister to the mountains and he said no cell phones”, “wait did you say no cell phones? In the mountains?” He responds “Yea I thought that was weird as shit too.” 

Now on to the daddy. When I lived with her he started yelling at her because she expected to live off of lawsuit money that was non existent, she blew it all. It was mommy and daddies way of living scott free, well he yelled at her “Who’s paying for gas (insert female name here) who’s paying your insurance (insert name here)?” So of course I stepped up to defend her, like an imbiscile, and I got so angry I was so close to start swinging, he was after all directly in my face. I chose the better path walked out across the street into the corn field because I knew I would do a lot of damage. Naturally I knew I’d calm down soon and just stayed away from him.

Anyways time passes he starts understand more as I explain like her money which was made into loans using her CDs as collateral which left her with about a thousand dollars or so left. I spoke to the banker and he explained it. Her house, bought using a CD and cash, her car, a CD. A loan from her own money, stupid right? Well I had to explain to her family what happened with all that money. I was the only one mentally capable to actually FIGURE it out. Her mother clueless, father clueless, sister clueless. Her whole family lacked common sense… Actual they weren’t very intelligent either and this is coming from a highschool drop out. I may not have a piece of paper to say I’m intelligent but after speaking with me, you will know I’m not as dumb as people think, and people do think that about highschool drop outs.

Phew ok so you see the family is a little disturbed, father more then anything, sister is dating a handicapped kid for his money from a lawsuit ( yep yet again someone with money from a lawsuit, see where I’m going here? They won’t work but they will sue! Oh also before mom passed away she was trying for a lawsuit for a “slip and fall” case at a local tennis court) anyways, father worked very little mom was addicted to the lottery. After she passed some how daddy won 800k. Now daddy’s being stingy and not allowing his daughter to have any money and telling her boyfriend ( an ex friend of mine ) to get out. He purchased his one daughter a car him a car and now wants everyone not related to him out of the house. 

  On another note, my ex (insert female name here ) told me when I dated her, that in her teens her father would watch porn openly. This is before 18 which you can understand something is SEVERELY WRONG HERE! The mom prior to that told me her sister once called child protective services on him for child neglect/abuse. Later on I realised “Holy shit this man is a pervert!!!!” Of course I can’t legitimately prove it because NOTHING is on paper but put two and two together and it falls into place. This man worked at a chocolate factory through an employment agency and left that job for a janitorial job at a school, NOT THE FIRST JANITORIAL JOB AT A SCHOOL!!!! I know what your thinking we’ll that could mean a college, I assure you, it wasn’t a college. They wouldn’t tell me the school’s name because they knew what I knew. He was a pervert! So now I hear he wants his daughters and him to go to the mountains ALONE…. WITHOUT THEIR CELLPHONES!!!!! Something sounds off, very VERY off. I walked away so it’s non of my business but now this guy that was my friend needs to talk to me “Man to man” about what events are transpiring. Now I’m in a sticky situation, after what he did to me and said fuck you for being a good friend, I really just want to leave it be and laugh behind his back because HE DOES DESERVE IT! But another side of me because yes I do have a good side, my good side doesn’t even know what to tell him besides I told you so. You should have listened and walked away the first time she cheated on you because I KNEW it would have happened. 

   Well I’m stuck at an intersection here not knowing exactly what I should do. I messaged him that’s the best I can do aside from that, it’s hard to actually determine what is the best way to go about this. I’ll figure it out, but all I know is Karma does exist, and Karma is definitely on my side. Sorry for the ramblings. I’d rather write then bottle! Have a lovely day folks and remember, Karma does exist, so you should be kind to others, unless you’d like a swift kick in the ass from karma 😀

Love

So I started watching Love. So far its not a bad show. It pretty much describes someone’s negatives and how they fix them to become positives… Sorta. So the two main characters meet by “accident” in a convenient store after the female lead freaks out on a clerk and the male lead steps in to resolve the situation.

     The show so far is filled with all sorts of examples of how to approach and how not to approach someone. The female lead ends up getting mad because her counterpart decides to sleep with someone on the set. I can see her argument but no one decided that they were dating.

    I can imagine how she feels. To some, sex is more spiritual then it is physical which I can slightly agree. Some have no form of emotion because they are afraid to “Feel” so the attatchment doesnt quite happen to them. I honestly dont understand how some have no emotional attatchment, for me its very difficult to not feel. THEY MUST BE ROBOT PEOPLE FROM HELL!

     Ok im joking anyways but really, todays society people just sleep with someone and have no form of attatchment or feeling and its just weird. I don’t understand it. Love is meaningless sex that becomes something magical… In the show not real life by the way… Anyway the show is quite interesting. I binge watched season 1 now on season 2 as it was released… They continue their friendship/relationship after shes seen his instagram post of his fridge being empty. She decides to meet him at the convenient store that they met at to unleash her problems and her worries.

       Actually opening up is probably one of the best things to do EVER in a relationship. Express your feelings. Tell your partner how you feel. Be honest and open without an attitude. Talk about it calmly and be respectful to your partner and TALK IT OUT!

     So far season 2 is them aking it slow. They take the time to actually DATE more. You know the whole go out, eat, get to know one another type thing EXCEPT they did kind of have sex again which thats usually not the best way to go about going back into a relationship but they still date and take the time to get to know one another!

    There are always set backs but they work passed them to try and fix her “slaa” problem. Sex and love anonnymous, which I never knew existed… Anyways its a support group to get people through tough times like NA and AA. Personally I think support groups are beneficial as you can learn from others and understand how others cope with their similar issues.

     Anyway enough of ranting today go watch the show! Netflix has it if you need more info check out IMDB!
