    • Here's a Quickie

      general08

      But not the good kind a couple has, like my coworkers and her boyfriend. I don't know why she even told me...

      Anyway! It's time for....

      Nothing special actually... Just wanted to share some of what happened while I was in Alaska.

      The first day I only worked like 6 hours. I stared off by gutting fish. Basically, you stand there putting your hand, don't worry, I wore gloves, and rain gear because I worked in the freezer which was about 35° at all times, and I ripped the guts out of all the fish that came in front of me. Then a few hours later I was moved to the sorting table. It's a lot cleaner, and requires three times more precision.

      I had to learn all the types of salmon and I quickly learned how to tell how much a fish weighed by holding it. Then after a week I learned to work the controls for the station I shared. Basically, every single fish that that plant processed went to my station first then we decided which good fish went to get gutted then sent to fillet and what fish was sent to the cannery to be, well, canned salmon. So using the controls was kinda big. It controlled how fast the fish came our station and to the various departments.

      Oh, by the way, I said I was sick for 2 weeks and a half weeks or something like that for the time I was up there. According to my doctor, I had a sinus infection, an ear infection, and a tonsil infection. Yeah, not fun. It sucked. And having to work with a sprained ankle, after some light duty and a day of bed rest of course.

      The task itself wasn't hard. Just sort the good fish from the bad. That was it. However, it was mainly the hours, being sick, being around everyone all the time who's also sick, and again, the hours. My shift lasted 17 hours, but I was clocked in for only 16 because of obvious unpaid meals.

      Anyway, that's it for now. Leave any questions or comments below and I'll respond ASAP.
      Later guys

    • I'm Back!!!

      9 years ago

      general08

      Holy crap! I've been sick for 2 weeks, I sprained my ankle, and I'm hella tired. Fish and Game closed the season early due to lack of fish. I had to work every day, nearly every day was 16 hours of work, and it is rated one of the toughest factory job because you must work. When I sprained my ankle they gave me a day off and then light duty until I was able to go back to my old job.

      I've got a ton to talk about, but not yet. If anyone has any curious questions, I'll answer those first, but right now, I'm going to watch a movie then going to bed. I was only able to sleep 3-5 hours every night after work so I've been extremely tired.

      I'll post some of the 200 pictures and videos I did later.

      It's great to be out of Naknek Alaska finally and I will be back on later.
      ^_^

    • Last Journal Update Until August

      9 years ago

      general08

      Well the time is almost here. I just finished my last shift at Quizno's. I'm now officially on my leave of absence. Technically I'm not leaving for Seattle until Wednesday, but I was able to get tomorrow off to spend it with my family.

      It's gonna be weird for me. I've never done something this huge and all on my on. It'll be one helluva an experience for me, that's for sure.

      Anyway, I'm just nervous and excited. On my own for 6 weeks just working my ass off. It'll be interesting. ^_^

      Anyway, I'll see you guys when I get back.
      Later

    • Gone In 2 Weeks!!!

      9 years ago

      general08

      Yup. I passed everything for that job in Alaska. I start on the 17 of June. I'm hella excited but even more nervous. I have to get to Seattle first then they fly me up to Alaska. I'll take plenty of pictures, don't worry.

      ^_^

      I'll have cell reception in Seatle, but not in Alaska so on the 17, don't call or text me. I won't get it.

      Other than that, I'll talk to you guys later. Hell, I might put up one more journal later, and that'll be to officially announce I've left California for Alaska.

      Later guys.

    • Fanime 2010

      9 years ago

      general08

      Well this whole Alaska thing is spiraling somewhere... I just don't know where yet. I'm not going to get all into it because I have other news.

      That's right, Fanime. Now because my boss won't let me get all the time off for Fanime this weekend, I'm only going on Friday. And since I don't have my license, I'm taking the train there and back. I'm taking the 6 AM train there and hopefully the line for registration won't be too long to get my badge to start having fun.

      If any of you guys are going, send me a message ASAP or a text on my cell. I do have unlimited text in case anyone is wondering. I'm not staying the whole day because I'm not bring much cash and the last train out of San Jose leaves at 5:35 PM.

      So yeah, that's about it.

      See you guys there ^_^

    • Heading to Alaska

      9 years ago

      general08

      Well, as awkward as that title is, it's true. For those of you who know me, I'm actually gonna be gone for about 2 months in Alaska. My reason is because of a job opportunity. Its not much, but I'm looking at it as a once in a life time opportunity. As my last journal said, my twin sister and I had an interview. Well, I have to take a physical, a drug test and get a back ground check. Since the only shady thing is all the knives and swords I have I should pass all those. And I've never been in better shape too. ^_^

      So, after all that, I got the job. I did the math, I'll make a few thousand in 2 months. I'm excited. My sister has a second interview still because she has more office experience so she may work in the administration building. I'm just gonna be doing grunt work, but oh well, easy money. ^_^

      So once I'm done with all these tests I'll post another journal to keep you guys informed. Until then, later guys. ^_^

    • One Less Secret

      9 years ago

      general08

      So I've had this secret, one of many, that I've kept to myself. Here's the one I'm making public now.

      I applied for a summer job with my twin sister. We have an interview this Friday in San Jose for this job.

      The job is in Alaska.

      Its for 2 months at minimum wage which there it's like $7.75 but the hours range from 4-18 a day. The website said 12-16 typically though.

      Right now, that's all I'm gonna say on it, after the interview I might post more. I'm not sure yet.

      Anyway, that's it for now, later guys.

    • Oh I've Been Busy

      9 years ago

      general08

      And that's no understatement. Two weeks ago I managed to work 32 hours, still manage school, find time to get in some gaming, and deal with bad allergies. I've bought some anime complete collections and that was expensive. I've started a video blog on my Youtube channel. Oh, and this past week I did all that again, but only worked 30 hours...

      And yes, you heard me correct, I did just say what you think I said. I got some minor gaming in my schedule. lol, just kidding. Yes though, I'm now doing my own video blog, or vlog as some call it.

      I'll be contactable here, on my DeviantArt, Gaia Online, and Youtube if anyone wants to hit me up.

      Thats all for now, I've got a speech to prepare for tomorrow. Later guys. ^^

    • Happy, Something, Day

      9 years ago

      general08

      Happy Valentine's Day, or in my case and most likely, many others, Happy Singles Awareness Day! I just finished pulling yard work, so now I'm gonna take a shower, all hot and steamy, *wink* (lol, jk). I've got work today, no surprise there.

      Anyway! Last night I went to my sister's when I got off of work. I had fun. We played on her Wii and watched Tosh.0, good times. When I got home around 1 AM, I got on Steam and played a game of Left 4 Dead with two of my friends, it was fun too.

      If anyone also has a Steam account, hit me up, my username is DM_General.

      Anyway, thats about it. Later guys.

    • Woot!

      general08

      Ok, so Mass Effect 2 is all pre-loaded on my computer, so all I have to do is wait for it to be released and I can play it!!! I'm excited. I pre-ordered the deluxe version so that makes it better, right? I hope. Oh well, see you guys later.

    • naramiko07

      11 years ago

      yes i am, at itt-technical university. i am majoring in computer network systems. also, on a different note, are ou planning on goign to fanime this year, and if so, would you like to join my group? im trying to get the old anime club from west back together for this. and if im gonna pull this off, i would like your help.

    • naramiko07

      11 years ago

      next time you put sarcasm...let me know...its not like i can detect sarcasm as easily with type. ok so jessica, then nvm. then forget all i asked you to do.

    • naramiko07

      11 years ago

      yeah well...ive been leading my life as an otaku for now. though my thoughts keep going thru if i shoul dhave given up like i did, or try harder to get her back. for some reason, i keep getting the notion of foul play is involved. if, if you learn or hear anythign can you let me know? no matter how much you think its gonna hurt me. i just need to know the real reason why she left me how she did. i know her (or at least i think i tdid) that she would say so in person, but she didnt. so since youve got miranda now...just let me know hwo she does. even though i know i cant have her anymore, im still gonna protect her, until i find someone else...but thats not gonna be for a while.
