    regarding fanfanfics

    To reiterate, A New Sun is dead. It's so dead that I'm having trouble forcing myself to summarize the ending. But I know a lot of people still care, because they've told me so. More to the point, someone just asked me for permission to do a sort of rework of ANS.

    old plans, part 5

    I'm busy with school, my hands hurt, and it turns out my dog has pancreatic cancer. So these are going to get shorter, but they have to happen because, I don't know, they just do.

    The following is either one or two chapters.

    old plans, part 4

    Meanwhile, Playboy puts out a special rush issue with Celestia on the cover and consisting mostly of the interview (they found time for that one photograph, never mind how). It turns out that Bob, the interviewer, didn't edit out a damn thing except where Celestia requested the removal herself. Celestia's power and personality are both a matter of public record now. Jeff compliments Bob's

I think I got used to cement after a month or so, if you don't already I'd recommend getting some good supportive shoes or you're going to suffer eternally. I was told to get two pairs and that alternating would make both last much longer.

It's good to hear you're hands are doing good:twilightsmile:

Oh, what do you do?
Yeah, I bought some shoes today that I've got high hopes for, though it turns out I won't be using them until tomorrow (VTO, hell yeah). If I can just do something about the foot problem, just bring it down a notch with a good pair of shoes, this won't be such a bad job at all.

I unload trucks and do other miscellaneous stuff for walmart. Not very glamorous but you get to talk to other people while you work and given the team oriented nature and every truck being different(as well as two trucks some days) each day is unique. Also rarely have to interact with costumers given its a retail job and It's pretty chill overall for $10 an hour.
Hopefully gonna get a car and start school soon though.

I wouldn't mind unloading trucks myself. I'm a picker, though. Which isn't too bad. It's a solitary job, which I like, and it's kind of fun to see how much goofy bullshit there is for sale in the world. Actually, wait, how much of that was made in sweatshops? Shit, I hope I don't have the time to think about that tonight.

I've heard Walmart is sometimes terrible to its employees. What's your own experience with them?

I think thats a case by case thing. The company itself has its fair share of nonsense, recently we've all been annoyed at orders from on high about little nitpicky ways to do our job that are of course sub optimal and even detrimental at times.

But I've got okay supervisor's and the management at my store are all awesome people so I've never had anything to complain about there.
