One Chapter ends. Another begins.

My employer (Best Buy) of 10 years fired me this past week. It was wrongful termination and I am going to fight it. However, if this is how they treat their employees of 10 years... I don't know if I even want to go back. 

Here is what wen't down:

Back in march my brother had a baby. I called in to the store asking if another employee that I work with can cover my shift the next day so I can go down and see him. That employee said sure. It was short notice so I couldn't change it in our schedule system.  I then went down to see my first nephew and came back to find that the employee never showed up.  I was placed on a "Final Warning".  Mind you I have NO previous attendance no call no show's in my file.  For over 9 1/2 years.  What this means is that I can not have any attendance infractions (for what I thought was 90 days).  Fast Forward 5 1/2 months.. end of august... I overslept.  Blackberry alarm software was corrupt and I had to restore my phone. First time thats ever happened. And first time I have overslept in YEARS.  I called in to the store and spoke with my supervisor on duty and told them what had happened. They said no problem don't worry about it and told him that I was on my way in.  

2 weeks later... I was asked to write a statement. 

2 days later I was terminated. 

1 week after my 10 year anniversary.  It disgusts me to think that this is what a company thinks of their employees. You would think that the HR department would look into this and say "You know... this individual has had no prior issues like this. So this may have just been a miscommunication or misunderstanding. As long as this isn't a re-occurring situation let's just have a discussion with him and say this can not happen again."  But no. It was just black and white "a policy violation" in their eyes. 

So I find myself ready to move on to the next chapter of my life.  Making my music career front and center. My main focus. TO THE FUTURE I GO!

wow... some time since my last post....

thought of the moment: As i look outside of a window at the objects moving past me at speeds so rapid, i ask myself do you see the same thing i see in the same way i do? Meaning, if i look down from the sky above outside the window of an airplane do you see the shapes and beauty and design that is the landscape, or do you see "a lake" or "a city" when you look outside of your window as you are driving in your car do you look at objects passing to the beat of the song that is on the radio at the current time? Do you wonder what life looks like through someone elses eyes?
When i look outside i see so many different things and i think sometimes that people do not actually "look" at something. They may see something, or see the object that their brain recognizes as a square or building or circle balloon... do you ever wonder what it would be like to see the world from the eyes of the building or balloon? I do. Sometimes I think i am a bit weird for this..
Do you see in widescreen? I do. I see the world i live in as a movie... with the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Things in life hardly phase me emotionally, at least at the first moment when i see them. Its typically MONTHS after i see them or sometimes weeks that they hit me emotionally.

I have been thinking about this for along time and wanted to write it down. Weird huh? hehe

welcome to my world.

Well lets see... i just got done reading an amazing article created by the man that invented Kurzweil keyboards and the first text-speech program... ihttp://www.kurzweilai.net/articles/art0134.html?printable=1 now i ask that you read this before you read my "argument/challenge"

f we are said to be "alone" in the universe... seti and mr. kurzweil are basing their assumption on a "carbon based material life form" the possiblity that a species so advacned (as he explains in exponential theory) is that if they are only a couple decades advanced than us.. they would in our time be 2000 years advanced (or more possible infinte).. biologically could have advanced in to pure energy once infinity time has been achieved...

I think that what we as humans identify as aliens are "little green men in flying saucers" why couldnt they be rays of sunlight? or heat energy!? Or even dust!? We believe only what we are taught to believe ie. Red is Red. why isnt red actually for real blue? The sky is above us? Why arent we below the sky or even above the sky?! I understand laws of physics.. and i understand how society and the world and civilizations have determined "why the world is round" "why the sun rises and sets" one of the biggest theorys in question right now... which was previously said to be impossible by the laws of physics to move Faster than the speed of Light...

What is the matrix?
:-P

Seriously.

Well today was pretty good, usually i hate working on sundays.... why? well they are the shortest days of the week (retail wise) however they go one forever for one reason or another. I got flyers for a show I am doing June 28th... they turned out rad. The promoter is my friend Adam its for his birthday celebration and mine as well. It will be a blast. I am playing a live P.A. I havent played out live in a long time... it should be pretty rad. Let' see what else... i am just chillin in the studio getting ready to work on some new music. I will post more "intimate" stuff (lol) later.

Well let's see... i guess a "hello world" is in order... so...

HELLO WORLD!

This is my journal... I have never really had a journal before but i guess it is time start. So i will start off with today... today was one of those days where you wake up and you feel as if the world has stopped and has begun rotating in a different direction and or it is the first day of your life... everything felt "weird" today. It started off ok, except i couldnt sleep well (i haven't been lately) So i go into work and It felt like my first day... everything looked out of place the world seemed off sync. like a bad dj trying to beatmix but trainwrecking the entire 9 hour set. so it went by and it was just crazy I forgot how much i actually hate working fridays and Retail in general. I have to go in to work every day with the assumption that people are stupid. Side note: My black light keeps flicking on and off. Ok back to this... Yeah so, today felt very long and went on forever.

Well i started the first journal on a tagent... next one will be happier :)
