Welp, being sent on my first travel outing for work. Not China , but Latin America. Probably within a week or 2. I asked for 2 weeks to get ready, they kind of gave the look that means tell them a shorter time.... So i said give me 1 week to prepare.
I need to prepare a power point for training other technicians, which is the purpose of them sending me to other countries. Ive had 3 weeks of training, then 2 to 3 weeks of figuring things out on my own, now i have to go around training other people..... Well at least it comes with a raise.
Seems like everything is doom and gloom these days. Where's all that happiness and joy at?
There is still lots out there. unfortunately politicians want to make more money so taking services like the internet and regulating them more in their favour is in their best interest and we as sheep should just accept it and whatever else they want from us.
Other than that, the joy comes from when you aren't online and in the company of actual people and sharing stories and having a laugh over some beers. Or taking part in a sport or biking or hiking and cutting loose of all the wires and phones and social media .
realizing you don't actually have 300 friends, but you have a handful of good reliable real friends.
realizing that tweets don't mean shit and saying hi as you pass a stranger is far more important.
remember to stop by and see your aunt who has lost her husband and brother to remind her that people still think about her and that shes more important than status updates.
There is TONS of joy out there ... but the great thing is, we don't need to record it all and we don't need to talk about it in online posts.
Landscaping can be OK. Though the last place I was at we started at 7 and id g et home at about 9 pm.
It wasn't worth it and it wasn't worthwhile for me.
