Hello people of the internet. Im listening to the new Coldplay as I write up this blog. Its lovely.Check it here:www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…
Anyways it is new territories. I started up school again yesterday. Technically all classes including Online started Monday, which I have two, but aside that, I went on campus yesterday. Yesterday, It was animal anatomy class, and I have a feeling is going to be better then the previous semesters as you know, I had problems of feeling the previous. All the class so far are never encouraging to go outside and study the animals. I feel a different subject and being on field trips might change my view on art a little. I guess I feel its the inside enviroment and being at home makes life a bit boring sometimes. I wanted to do Locational drawing and painting, but it was canceled on me, and so this is a good substitute. We also get to draw live animals too. Its going to be so tempting to pet the animals, but we aren't allowed. Tommorrow, Ill be back in the digital saddle and learn basics. I felt, even though it never matter, maybe seening painting techniques from a viz dev artist will help. Online are kind of boosting my selling skills. I wish it was on campus, but I really just wanted to make room for my job.
And on that subject, BASKIN ROBBINS HAS FOUND ME OUT. I got the job. So far, I love the first two shift I had. The guys were friendly, and the business wasn't too bad. I didn't mind scooping ice cream for the folks, and the second time, I was tipped 7 dollars. But the third shift by far was the worst for me. I work for two stores, and so the first two shifts required me to only work at that store, where only one person was with me on shift. So my third shift was different because it was a different store, and so I had two boss like people giving me two different instructions. So yea you can see the problem. I was really treated the bottom of the barrel there. They have this attitude that its your responsibility to fix your own messes. While its fine and all, on top of the two instructions, I get an instruction to clean something or to help Customers, and then I hear my name scorching in fire "CARISSA!" It was only hard because I was balancing following the instructions and remembering cleaning the mess I made. On top of that, you got me treated like a new person as in they never watch me at the other store. I had a few times where they were helping too much or too little. The worst of it, closing up shop. While I didn't mind sweeping, even though I saw the girls cleaning a few times, the other times, they were talking and not working. It sort of annoyed me a bit as I was doing heavy duty work, while the girls were just cleaning dishes. The mop, was the heaviest thing I have ever lifted in the store. You would think the Ice Cream tub was hard, but nope, its the stringy Industry Mop bathed in a ton of cleaning solution that turns the floor into an ice rink. You have to lift the mop into the bucket, and then on top of that, lift the mop again into a tiny bucket to wring it out. After that's all done, you have to then lift a bucket filled with solution, lift the mop and clean the mop into the solution, lift the mop out of the solution and put it in the second small bucket. Then Dump both buckets out. It felt like going to a bodybuilder's competition, stuff I don't want to do.
In contrast, Im not sure whether to take this hate or not. These girls when I first met them, were nice and talkative, so I know they can be nice and they are also my age which some have the same interest. They helped me on certain items and they weren't all hateful. Ive just got a job to do, the pay and hours are nice, it was hard to get a job in the first place, and my dad says work hard for it. Yet, my human rights were a little violated on in the inside, my dad kept telling my bro about the wrong things bout the postal office and how to be interviewed, and it just reminded me too much of my family at home a bit.
But eh? Who knows. Maybe its just because I'm so flustered as a trainee, being my first job. Ill just have to pile through it. Be strong, that is my ninja way as Naruto would say. Or Be Strong and Courages as the Bible says. My next shift is Sat and Sun, same time, same location. It could be different as I possibly have different employees.
There is an amazing exhibit that is already in Cali today. I've been seeing alot on my FB feed that this art exhibit lives and has touch many on the other side of the globe. And I invited a few friends to tag along.
Its called Living digital Space by the Japanese Team, Team Lab. Check it out.www.pacegallery.com/arttechnol…
The museum is name pace gallery and its located in Menlo Park, CA.
After this event, I feel there shouldn't be an excuse not to draw anything. I should try to do something after seeing these works of art. This is true modernism done right. And I have nothing to say really. Im speechless by these pieces.
So yea, I should head to bed, so bye bye. Good night lovely internet, Ill will miss you until the reachs of my bright little screen that is my samsung galaxy, and the corner of New Montgomery.
