While I have faith in cybersecurity experts, I was thinking about how FontOnLake could be turned into ransomware in the sense of demanding control over the grid. If hackers or the elite can control that, and introduce a social credit score, they can therefore bring an uninformed and unprepared population to their knees. While I'm not crapping my pants in fear over that, it's still a realistic possibility.
To make myself not become a victim of this FontOnLake Linux malware in the coming times, I've decided to gradually start living an off-grid lifestyle, because it forced me to realize that centralized infrastructures can fail in situations like these. I've been spending a portion of the day looking into how to do that, and some of it sounds feasible so far, but there's a lot I'll need to learn.
So because I ate small amount of fruit before taking my dad to the doctor this morning, Burger King decides to give me the finger by telling me that they stop serving breakfast around 11am. In other words, I can only have breakfast when THEY say I can. "Have it your way!" my anus!
My friend became an orphan after his mom died back in January, and now his grandma died. One option he has is to get a job where I'm at (because he's been unemployed for a few years), have his house's landlord pair him up with two roommates, and split the costs with them. Another option would be to move in with his uncle who lives out of state. I'm hoping the former works out because he's like a brother to me.
I worked HARD again tonight. When I saw the assistant manager earlier this afternoon, he told me that the manager was nice enough to give me a bonus because he's been hearing how great I'm doing, so I ended up getting $590 as opposed to the $400-something I would've gotten originally. Also, an elderly couple who comes there regularly gave me a fish toy for my cat to play with, all because I told them about her.
After having a conversation with the assistant manager this morning, it turns out I was dead wrong about the head manager. I kept thinking the head manager was blowing me off and making excuses when it came to getting my paper work printed. It turns out he has deadlines with his construction project due to permits. Thankfully, after I apologized to him, it's all water under the bridge now.
According to two coworkers I talked to earlier tonight, this manager is known for being dysfunctional when it comes to running the restaurant. Not only have I decided to quit soon because I've honestly lost all respect for him, but I'm thinking about looking into the legal aspects of what he's doing, and seeing if there's charges I can place on him.
While my boss isn't trying to come off as being too wrapped up in his construction project on the restaurant, he definitely acts that way. I've been working there for practically two weeks now, and I still don't know what I'm getting paid per hour, nor has finally printed out my paperwork (claiming his printer's not working). I suggested he go to the local library and print it, but he says he'll "take care of it".
I worked HARD tonight. Because it's a friday night, we were very busy and short on waitresses, so on top of the tasks I normally complete, I decided to take the initiative and help out with bringing drinks out, filling orders (which was the first time I ever did that), and busing tables. One table I filled an order for was nice enough to give me a $20 tip because I jumped in and provided quality service.
After being unemployed for a year again, and having an unfortunate habit of procrastinating and getting distracted when it comes to getting my gig jobs set up, I finally managed to get a new job at a local sports bar. While I was sore after completing my shift, the job itself wasn't too bad. Because I'll be working all weekend, my body's going to be feeling that afterward.
For those of you who remember, or simply heard about, Geocities from back in the day, there's a site called Neocities, which is dedicated to preserving Geocities, and allowing people to create their own Geocities-style site on it. I'm checking it out now, and I might look into putting my own site on it. Neocities.org
We have tall evergreen shrubs right by our back window, and they produce some kind of fruit or whatever that the squirrels like to eat. After holding Tara and showing the squirrel to her, she kept trying to find ways to watch it, so I put a kitchen chair by the window and she stood on it while putting her paws on the window sill.
Because my phone's alarms don't go off like they're supposed to half of the time, now I inadvertently missed my physical therapy appoint for the 5th time. I'm trying to not piss them off, but can't help it when I keep encountering this issue! Thankfully and surprisingly, they were willing to offer yet another chance, but I told them I need to get a job and a new phone before I make another appointment.
Now that I have my laptop up and running again, I recently took a test to potentially get hired as a proofreader, and I applied to a pet-sitting agency to take care of people's cats. If I can complete both jobs, more power to me.
