Friday Realizations & Thoughts!

Published October 4, 2019 by Shay Taree

So yesterday I came to a realization that really spoke to me. Yesterday I found out a friend of mine got a new and it’s a good job. So I found myself comparing my currently job, life, etc to her job, life, etc. It’s safe to say that me having those thoughts didn’t make me feel very good.

I was left feeling inadequate and wanting to make a change. Well I decided to do that by looking for a new job. It wasn’t until I got home from work that I really started thinking. Was I looking for a new job because I wanted one/needed one or was I looking so that I can try and compete with my friend or try and keep up with her?

The conclusion I came to was that I wanted to keep up with her and I was really afraid of falling behind. This is a great fear of mine. I fear not being successful in my life, I fear my friends leaving me behind, and I fear not living up to my potential.

So this morning when I thought about what I really want and what I want my career to be. The same thought came to my mind and it was entertainment. It’s something I’ve always gravitated towards and I know it’s the path I want to follow. But now how to do it. That part I don’t know but I’m gonna figure it out.

For now though I’m just happy that I came to this conclusion. Also now I plan to continue following my dreams and going to continue working on staying true to myself.

I guess to leave everyone with a questions is what’s something that you fear and what’s something that you want to accomplish?

Interview Attire (Why)!!!

Published May 2, 2019 by Shay Taree

So I’m going through a job interview today for another job within my company and I came across a dilemma. I wasn’t sure if I needed to dress up or not since these people are my co-workers. Now when I go to work I dress in jeans, a t-shirt, and a sweatshirt. So I felt it was weird to dress up since y’all see me everyday in this outfit.

This got me to thinking about why do we have to dress up for interviews. Like I get that it’s polite and good impressions but I really doubt that my slightly too small slacks and itchy shirt are going to make me qualified for this job. I mean your mostly listening to my qualifications so what do my clothes I have to do with it.

I know some people are going to say that first impressions mean everything but aren’t we also told not to judge a book by its cover. Now I agree you should come dressed in sweats or booty shorts but I do think that you should be comfortable.

So I think that comfortable attire should be allowed at job interviews and the office. Yes there should be some structure but I think the suit and tie or slacks should be retired.

But I want to know what y’all think? Do you think that comfortable clothes should be allowed during job interviews? Comment down below and let me know.

Fans Choose Anime Pairings?

Published April 16, 2014 by Shay Taree

Now I know that every time I watch a show I end up searching for pairings or finding characters that I would love to be together. Sometimes this ends up happening and sometimes it doesn’t. (Sometimes it does though it takes awhile ….cough Inuyasha cough)

But anyway after realizing this it made me think about what if fans chose the pairings that they wanted to see in a series. Now I know what your thinking that fans already do since there is fanfiction and fanart and everything. But what I’m talking about is if there was a poll or something where people could vote.

Or what if fans got to choose the direction the show went in completely. Now that would be awesome. It would totally remind me of those Goosebumps books where you got to choose your own path.

Like every week after an episode would air, fans could go online and vote for what they would like to see happen in the next episode.

Yeah I know it sounds crazy and would take a lot of work but I think that’s what would make it fun.

But tell me what you think and leave your comments below.
