  • Listening to: Bad Religion - "Sanity"
  • Reading: Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel
  • Drinking: Water

"It doesn't really matter how my day has turned out?
I always end up living in this world of doubt
And sanity is a full time job
In a world that is always changing
And sanity will make you strong
If you believe in sanity."
-"Sanity" by Bad Religion


So work is really starting to get to me. My new owner is the strangest person I have ever met and I mean that in a bad way (that is the nicest way I can phrase that sentence). One day he is nice as pie to me and the next he is overly critical. He is constantly “critiquing” me in front of customers and I’m getting sick of it. I have been doing this job for two fuck years, if I was no good at it I wouldn’t have lasted as long as I did. I feel unappreciated and I just wish that for once he was say “You did a good job today” or “Great job on bread.” Instead it’s all “Wear smaller gloves” (for the record Medium gloves are too big for my hands and the small is too tight...sorry I have weird sized hands) or “Why didn’t you set the timer?! You should have looked! BREAD COMES FIRST” (no, customers come first! Customers always come first) or “Why didn’t you ask for a meal? You should have asked if he wanted a meal” (look, this guy has been coming twice a week since I have been working here and he never gets a meal. It’s a pointless question).

I was at the other Subway getting supper for my parents and me. To make a long story short, it was cheaper for me to get it at the other subway because the owner of my store is a cheapskate. I was talking to the manager who had been begging me to come work for her for months now. At the same time, I thought things were getting better at my store so I told her I would think about it. Today, she offered me the perfect shift since one of the ladies (who I worked with at the other store and I adore) is leaving. I’m not sure if I can pass this opportunity up. Would I be a bad person if I left my current store to work at the other one? Or do I have to do what’s best for me?

I don’t know what I am going to do but I have options. I do have enough money to pay off my student loan so that’s a plus. I just fear if I stay at my current store, I am going to have a nervous breakdown. He makes me feel crazy and I get anxiety just thinking about that place. If I do leave I will miss the staff and the customers but it all boils down to the crazy owner and my hours. I hope I will figure out what to do soon.

History:
Clarissa spent her whole life living on the dairy farm with her parents. Every day she woke up before sunrise and did her chores before getting ready for school. When she got home from school, she did more chores until the sunset, then she would have dinner, and do her homework. She led a busy but happy life. 

One day, while working on her computer, a strange glowing light emerged from the screen. When the light finally dissipated, she saw her digivice. Not knowing what it was and knowing that no one would believe her if she told them, she hid it away in her closet. The next morning, she heard rustling in her closet; when she opened the closet doors, she saw a little baby digimon: Moomon. 

Surprised to see the baby digimon and not knowing what it was, Clarissa did her best to hide it but she found it hard conceal it with the creatures's huge appetite. It wasn't long before Moomon digivolved into Calfmon and she was finally able to communicate with it. She was shocked by the whole idea of digimon and found her head spinning. Over time, she built a relationship with her digimon companion and eventually introduced her to her parents. Although they were skeptical at first, they welcomed the digital monster into their home. 

By the time the digimon digivolved into Heifermon, the two had become inseparable. They worked on the farm together, played together, and even did Clarissa's homework together. They were both happy until one day an evil digimon attacked them on the farm. Heifermon was able to digivolve in Cowmon and fight off the attacking digimon. After hearing about a similar story in a city, Clarissa and Heifermon decided to leave the farm for the city to search for answers before any harm could come to them or their family.

Wow, that took longer than expected. I have been working on them off and on for a little over a year. I started when I first heard about Digimon Tri. I actually started working on it again a few weeks ago but anyway, they are finished and I love them to death.

I used KleinerKolibriPixel's Digivice base found here: fav.me/d68mpnt

I do not own Digimon.

  • Listening to: The Tragically Hip- "Bobcaygeon"
  • Reading: My Little Pony: The Journal of the Two Sisters
  • Drinking: Water

If you get that title, chances are you have listened to "Welcome to Night Vale" at least once!

So this journal will be about how “Welcome to Night Vale” stopped me from leaving Subway in the most dramatic fashion. A few months ago, through dA I discovered the delightful podcast “Welcome to Night Vale” and absolutely fell in love. If none of you have ever listened to it, I highly suggest it (it’s also available of YouTube, in case, like me, you don’t have iTunes). “Welcome to Night Vale” is weird, frightening, and funny; there is no way to describe it without listening to an episode.


“A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep. Welcome to Night Vale.”

I know what you are thinking, “That’s all well and good but how did that stop you from storming out of work and causing a scene?” I’m getting to that. In Night Vale, the most bizarre things happen and the townspeople, just accept it and move on. That is Absurdism!

Absurdism is the idea that life is meaningless and despite a need for meaning, we will find none. There is three ways to deal with that: 1) suicide (I do NOT advocate suicide as a proper way to deal with it), 2) denial, or 3) acceptance. I am not an Absurdist but I applied this train of thought to subway.

So this is how the subway version of Absurdism works. Subway is crazy, the new owner is cheap and crazy, and nothing that we are told to do makes any sense. I have three options: 1) I can quit, 2) I can keep thinking that things are going to get better, or 3) I can accept it and move on. So I decided to just move on and I have adopted the new catchphrase, “Fuck it!”

So like in Night Vale, the people know that their town is crazy and frightening but they just accept it and live their lives. That I what I have decided to do with Subway! And if I had never listened to. “Welcome to Night Vale” I never would have made that connection. So I still work at Subway but I am trying to not to let the craziness bother me (trying is the key word).

Seriously though go listen to "Welcome to Night Vale" right now! Here's episode 1 for you...no work involved!


Art Journal: Entry #13 - Stressed Out by Greenpolarbear47
Art Journal: Entry #13 - Stressed Out

I did this journal entry today and by today I mean May 23rd.

I have been under a great deal of stress, not only from work but from dealing with the sale of my father’s family home. Anyways, I hear the song “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots (youtu.be/pXRviuL6vMY ) constantly at work and some of the lyrics are really, really beautiful. So this page utilizes the quotes that I really love.

Comment and critiques are welcomed but not necessary. This is a piece that I created for myself; I simply decided to share it with the rest of the community.
