The 54th Deadline: Spite

The 54th Deadline: Spite

Today at work, our new guy just quit in the middle of his shift. Straight up, he just left when he went on break, but he never came back. I could not help but feel spiteful and resentful for it. For one thing, as someone who suffered a crazy bout with depression for many years DUE to being long-term unemployed, I am annoyed to see such behavior. You see, I think of work as a privilege. As in, I believe it…

The 54th Deadline: Dishwasher Days

Honestly, do you want to know what I think is one of the hardest jobs at any restaurant? No joke, I believe it is dishwashing. Yes, I am talking about the occupation where someone washes the dishes. As someone who has learned a lot from life due to washing the dishes at various restaurants, let me tell you one thing – it is harder than you realize.

The 54th Deadline: Shortcut

The 54th Deadline: Shortcut

“There comes a point where trying to follow the linear path is not nearly quick enough.” I am a mess. I have grown completely weary of trying to do things the old-fashioned way. What can I say? It has been five years and counting. After a while, it all makes me wonder what I am doing with my life. It sucks because we all should hope for happiness, whatever that may respectively be for all of us. My idea of…

The 54th Deadline: Glimpse of Greatness

The 54th Deadline: Glimpse of Greatness

“No matter what the world says, you are only as great as you want to be in life.” I am going to go out on a limb here and assume most people, hopefully anyway, have had very impactful and meaningful individuals who have entered their lives at one point to trigger a necessary catalyst. And this catalyst itself is the start of various possibilities. Perhaps it was in sports. Perhaps it was in music. For me, it was writing. Writing…

The 54th Deadline: Method

The 54th Deadline: Method

“The method in which we approach something is vital for the final result.” A particular quote has been on my mind as of late… Sadly, this quote is quite applicable to me in a variety of ways. I am very stubborn when it comes to change. Old habits die hard for me. I am not someone who can change his ways with ease. I delay the change. I think about it. I mull over every aspect of it. Gradually, if I…

The 54th Deadline: Composure

The 54th Deadline: Composure

“People who can keep their cool no matter what can persevere through anything.” As I have grown older, I have realized I have always lacked a lot of composure as a person. Composure is something I wish I had more of, in abundance, especially when life forced me into a corner and made me rethink everything. The fact is, if I could have composed myself a lot better as my world was falling apart, everything would have certainly played out differently….

The 54th Deadline: Priorities

The 54th Deadline: Priorities

There are many times where I wonder if my priorities are in the right place. At all. It has dawned on me lately that my personal priorities aren’t as concrete as I would like. Evidently, I am scatterbrained in many regards. And with this in mind, I have to be more of an adult and realize what I want, especially in the next stages of this complicated process. The other day really hit me where it counted. I was cashing…
