It has been almost a year since my last post on May 8th, 2015. The title of this post is somewhat misleading. I was not having fun. In fact working as a family slave at Schneiderman’s Furniture totally exhausted and depressed me.
I was fired from my Sales Associate position on January 1st, 2016. And looking back I’ll be the first to admit that it came as a relief. I cannot say that I enjoyed my time while I was employed there. Oh sure, it had its moments but for the most part the total lack of transparency in the company was frustrating and demoralizing. add to this a lack of authentic leadership and poor management and you’ll get my drift.
I wrote to the owner, Larry S. to share my thoughts and feelings with him. His reply basically let me know that he didn’t give a rat’s ass and that I was only a hindrance to his plan for raking in millions of dollars each year.
So now I have time on my hands and have decided it’s time to have some fun. After all, I have paid my dues. It’s my turn to cease playing by the rules.
I have been creating the beginnings of a bucket list. Not containing things I feel I have to complete before I pass on to the next world but rather a list of things I would like to try and do at some time as the mood or thought moves me.
In the meantime I have devoted some time to reading. My vision is low so reading is a bit of a chore. However, reading interesting stuff builds towards a wealth of knowledge and that I find is a suitable pay-off. I should mention that I have a bad habit when it comes to reading. I read several books at the same time. Which book I read depends on what part of the house I am in. My readers may nod and smile in perfect understanding because they do this too. Others will dismiss the thought as a totally bad idea. But deep down, when you think about it; random moments of reading are good for your brain.
