Playing Super Mario Bros. 3 Blindfolded

I figured.. what the hell!!! Why not!?!?!? So I decided to play Super Mario Bros. 3 Blindfolded because I thought.. Hell! How hard could this be!? I figured I would pass the first few levels and maybe the first world easily! Well it came to no surprise what I was actually in for!!!!

This game was played on a Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System which can be purchased at the following link!

Gymming 2020

Okay! So while everyone else was taking the time off from Christmas to New Years I was in the gym busting my ass! Today was fun to see how many people still returning to the gym have fallen off track!

My gym was closed on the 1st of Jan! HAHA

2nd of Jan and since has been a lot of people on their phones.

Sitting on machines on their phones, sitting on matts on their phones, and my favourite.. there was a even a guy sitting on the bike on his phone… and he wasn’t even pedaling!!! What a waste of a machine for someone to be using

I guess their goals were to go to the gym, not workout at the gym! But.. hey! I ain’t gonna judge these people!

I get in, do my workout and get out!  Not wasting my time on these people anymore. Try to work around them the best I can and get them to move if needed.

Tonight I had my boxing class! My workout partner has improved a lot over the last month or so. So today I finally got to do real punches verses just doing little taps on the pads. Felt really good to punch harder!

Then after boxing was a core class! We call it bleeding abs! Because if your abs aren’t hurting from boxing they are going to be hurting in the class after!

I bloody love going to the gym!!!! People always ask me how I am motivated to go. Truth is am not. I just make sure I get myself there. That is one of the hardest barriers. And I get a routine set up from a personal trainer which really helps. So I can focus on what I want to work on and make sure I have perfect form so I ain’t doing anything bad for my body!

Keep up the hard work everyone! If you are taking your phone to the gym be aware of others that are putting in the hard work while you are taking your break so you can politely get the flying FUCK out of the way! Hahaha

 

Cyrano de Bergerac – James McAvoy

Last week the hubby and I went to see Cyrano de Bergerac starring James McAvoy. The show brought us a lot of enjoyment! The first half of the play had so much energy and London slang kept me off the tip of my chair! I swear if I didn’t move here I wouldn’t known what half of it had even meant!

I have always thought highly of James McAvoy especially because he is in a few of my favourite movies. So seeing him live on stage was fricking amazing!!! He is so talented at what he does! I love seeing an actor that can actually act instead of just getting type casted into the same exact roles. So thank you so much for being one of these actors!

If you get to see the show you are lucky because it is amazing! I think people waited after the show to meet him but couldn’t be bothered. We all just have to get on with our lives! Thanks for your talents and keep it up the great work!

The rest of the cast did a great job too. I loved that there wasn’t much of a set so the actors had to be on point or it would have been complete and utter shhiiiit! hahaha I wish the 2nd half of the play wasn’t so sad and for them to speed up the war bit. But o well! Keep up the great work everyone!

Companies that value great receptionists will succeed!

First of all I want you to know that I have always loved being a receptionist. It is a role that I have so much respect for and I think a lot of companies do not understand the value and importance of the role.

There are plenty of businesses out there that just want to hire someone that is young and pretty. They say the receptionist is the face of the company. But do you want that face to be someone that is just to look at and incompetent? Not saying that all the young pretty faces aren’t hard workers but there seems to be this stereotype that these people are air heads, lazy and have no drive.

I believe that a company should hire someone who is passionate in this role! Someone who will greet your customers with a smile and develop a friendship with them and get to know them. Not someone that will ignore the phone ringing or pick up and act like they don’t want to talk to your customer on the other end and have a bad attitude.

Your receptionist is the eyes and ears of the company. They hear a lot of chatter and see a lot of situations that people elsewhere in the company do not even know happens. They overhear phone calls not that they are purposely listening in. But they hold more information about people that is useful to the company that other employees do not know how useful it can be.

An example would be if you had a client that was really upset and went out of the buildings in tears would you want to know about it? Would you want that client to think your company does not care about their goals and what they are after? This client would probably leave and find another company to do business with.

What I would expect if a situation like this to happen is for the receptionist to inform whoever was dealing with this client. They need to go out and sort this out right away. They need to be understanding and try to be more human instead of just pushing agendas on them. A little personal touch can go a long way. Take this client out for coffee and go over what the problem is so it can be worked on. Listening is huge and sometimes people can forget that their clients come first and need to be showed that care.

There are plenty of people that don’t respect or understand what a receptionist actually does. They forget that this person is the heartbeat of the company. They don’t just sit there and look pretty and say hello to people. They do a lot of tedious paperwork! I order inventory for the office. They make sure you have all of your favourite items in the office to keep everyone happy. Making sure outgoing post is sent out correctly and to the right people. Taking care of expenses. They are most likely doing many things at once and even ask if you need help with anything. How many times have you asked a receptionist if they needed help with anything or wanted to learn a new skill?

My goal of this article is that I want people to show appreciation to their receptionists. It is a role that is often undervalued at companies. Our role isn’t just to sit there and look attractive but to make the lives of everyone at the company better. Always helping and having a positive attitude.

I truly believe if a company lacks with having a receptionist that is respected by the team that the company is lacking in other places too. So if you are unhappy with your job, look to see how the company respects the receptionist and I think that will tell you a lot about who you work with and for.

 

 

 

Stages of a Tattoo

Hi All!

So I did something for my birthday. I got a tattoo! I have never did something more painful on purpose to myself in my life. I’ve dealt with depression my whole life, so my pain, for the most part has been internal, but then the internal pain becomes external and well, you know. But this right here… this tattoo, first one ever, extending from my rib cage to the top of my hip, was THE MOST PAINFUL sensation I’ve ever felt. But wait a minute, I may be exaggerating just a bit. While the needle slid over my right ribs, I slightly remember staring outside, it was a beautiful July day. The day after my birthday (I couldn’t have imagined doing this on a day of celebration), it was a sunny 80 degree Fahrenheit day. Outside were full lush green trees and a baby blue sky, without a cloud in sight. I focused on a light post, the ink gun pierced my skin, my upper lip began to sweat, I was screaming inside, the only evidence of my remorse was a lone tear gliding down my left cheek, the cheek that was pressed against the chair I laid on.  Everything began to fade around me; I was about to pass out.

I had to stick around. I had to see the end product. I had to stay. Just like a lot of other things in my life, I’d give up. I’d start something, get bored or scared and then not finish. Or even deeper, I’d have thoughts of not being around anymore, just giving up life. I was bored, I was scared, I thought I knew what would happen, that I’d never live my dream, or that I’d end up alone, with no one ever really know the pain and the guilt I felt. But this: needle in skin, scraping epidermis.

“I can do this” I thought. I have to stay here. I have to finish. If I can go through this pain, and finish any way, what else would I be able to do? I don’t know. But for once in my life, I wanted to find out what it would be like, if I stayed.

This was the first stage of getting my dream catcher with a semi colon. It means that I will continue to ward off evil spirits and fight this battle of depression. Tattoo

Pokemon Sword & Shield is Awesome!

Pokemon Sword and Shield are awesome!!!! I have gone with the sword version as a friend has gone with the shield version!

The game play through is a lot of fun and because I haven’t played Pokemon for a while there are a lot of new Pokemons to me. I absolutely love playing raids with my friends. It is so nice to play with my friends all over the world!

The only bit I was sad about is that they didn’t keep the pokeball interactive from my Pokemon Lets go Pikachu/Eevee game. You can use the pokeball controller to connect to Pokemon Go to collect rewards but you can’t walk around Pokemon Sword/Shield with the pokeball controller and catch Pokemon with it. I think Niantic missed out with keeping it consistent. But the game still remains a lot of fun. If you put a pokemon in your pokeball to connect with Pokemon Go the Pokemon will not level up in this version but you will still collect items.

The game is extremely enjoyable! A highly recommend it to anyone who wants to play the game!
