Azn Badger's Blog

What About the Lysine Contingency…?

Summon Amazon.com!

I know what you’re thinking:

“Hey Azn Badger, bitter much?”

To make a long story short, yes; I am indeed bitter over my recent unemployment.

Bitter, but not angry in a “freak-out-and-bring-a-gun-to-the-office” sort of way.

Besides, like my brother’s been telling me for awhile now; being unemployed is probably the best thing for me right now, as it gives me the freedom to actually start looking out for career opportunities as opposed to jobs.

Anyway, I’ve had a busy day up until now, so I think it’s time I got spend some time with my friends.

Blogging is fun, but I’ll take an afternoon kickin’ it with my buddies over it any day.

See you tomorrow!

The Unemployed Badger

Unemployed Badger is Unemployed!

Well folks, it finally happened.

After 6 months or so of working in the Amazon warehouse, the Azn Badger has finally been laid off.

Thus begins the long and boring journey through the realm of unemployment.

It’s funny, I actually started this blog as a result of losing my previous job.

I spent about 3-4 months coming into the office, without compensation; and after awhile I felt an urge to do something more productive with my days than watching Angry Videogame Nerd, Spoony Experiment, and Nostalgia Critic videos.

Given my fondness for writing, I figured starting a blog would be an enjoyable excursion into the world of public venue writing.

Being as I haven’t missed a day since, I’d say it was a good move.

That being, here I am; in the exact same position I was in so many months ago.

Don’t be surprised if posts on this blog become more intricate and long-winded, after all; it’s not like I’ve got a whole of shit on my plate in my immediate future.

If it’s any indication, I actually sat down for a game of Magic the Gathering with one of my pals this afternoon.

I haven’t done that, nor had any desire to do that in 15 years.

While it was indeed more fun than I had anticipated, as well as quite a bit easier to get a handle on given that I’m no longer an 8 year old with the mind of a 5 year old; I don’t expect I’ll ever put any money or serious time into Magic at this point in my life.

I will however sit down to friendly games with my neighborhood buddies every now and again though.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for tonight.

To those sharing my current plight, know that I’m right there with you.

To those who are currently employed, and have no such insecurities; to you I say “fuck you.”

All that said and done, who wants to give me a job?

Work Makes Me Hate The World

This week was my first 60 hour work week at Amazon.

By the end, I was finding aches in parts of my body that no 23 year old man should have aches in.

Young men such as myself should never have to worry about pain in their knees and lower back, but as I sit typing this post; I hurt pretty much all over.

Not only that, I’m finding that working for so many days consecutively leaves me feeling bitter to the point in which I think it would be best if I just stayed away from people for the next 24 hours.

We’ll call it a “cooling off” period.

Speaking of “cool,” I was in the freezer, that is; the massive, -2o degree industrial freezer, every day this week, so rest assured I’m very much full of Hulk rage at the moment.

And I don’t mean gray Hulk rage either, I’m talkin’ full on, green and mean Hulk rage…

 

Haha, Hulk speak is funny...

That being said, I’ll sum up by saying I hope no of you had to work like I did these past 6 days, and if you did; you have my deepest sympathies.

Here’s to the next 3 days of freedom.

By the way, if you happen to bump into me on the street tomorrow, don’t say “hi,” otherwise I’ll probably let out a Howard Dean-esque battle cry and tear your scalp off and feed it to you.

Seriously:  Don’t poke the badger when he’s in “hate the world” mode…

The End of an Era (Maybe)

As of this coming Friday, The Azn Badger is once again an employed member of the work force.

That’s right folks, The Azn Badger is no longer a bum!

While that’s one huge burden off my shoulders, it also presents me with another dilemma; namely what to do with this blog.

At this point I’m still telling myself:

“Yeah! Gut it out! Keep the post-a-day streak alive!’

However, deep down, I know that that might be too much to ask of myself once I’m back on my full-time work schedule.

Part of my mission statement upon starting this blog was that I would write a post everyday until I found a job.

Now that I’m free of the commitment I issued myself in my mission statement, I just don’t know if I’ll be able to invest the same amount of time on this blog as I have in the past 97 days.

The blog will continue, but at what capacity; I just can’t say as of now.

Today I have no bold declarations to make, nor any revisions to tag onto my mission statement.

Today I am simply happy, and fortunate to have a job.

Thanks for reading, check back often!
