Going to get to the trick or treat tag in a moment. Meanwhile, this is interesting. I remember when I had more rl friends on this journal than internet. XD

Who comments the most on this journal? )

I also learned a lesson last night: Don't answer the phone. Either it's a screaming bitch or a call off.

Peace,

might draw after doing the dare/posting on own dares psycho

Things on the agenda: Welcome people, rant about work, and whatever random stuff I can think of. Oh, and eventually do something productive. Eventually.

First thing's first, a belated welcome to [livejournal.com profile] osoroi, and a big welcome to [livejournal.com profile] orange_lovely, [livejournal.com profile] misstwi, [livejournal.com profile] soypants, [livejournal.com profile] fetusforbrunch, [livejournal.com profile] krissified, [livejournal.com profile] digivolution, [livejournal.com profile] bubblegum_miley, [livejournal.com profile] ghrelin, and [livejournal.com profile] lady_saru365 from the kuroshitsuji friending meme! I really hope that we all can become good friends and have fun lurking on each other's journals! Also, I'm a really boring person who complains a lot...just as a warning.

Oh, and have a Contact Post so you can stalk me elsewhere on the internet. ♥ That also goes for the rest of my flist too...mostly since I just made it. never thought I'd need one...seriously.

Now, onto the work rant from this past week! Under a cut...because like last week, this week just...ug. They're lucky I haven't quit yet.

labor Labor LABOR.And caps lock of RAGE. )

So, that was my week in a nutshell. Joined two Hetalia rps (finally) too, which I'm still filling out apps for. I have a love/hate relationship in filling out histories. Because I adore doing the research, but I just...hate typing it all up. That and character descriptions. Why the hell would I need one if you're making me post a picture anyway?? But I digress, could be worse.

So, to those that are going/already back to school: GOOD LUCK.
For those like me who are working instead of going to school: REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD A 2 MONTH VACATION?!? AHAHAHAHAHA.

Peace,

gonna work on apps and maybe lay off the sugar psycho

Really?

So, this presumtious bastard decides to make flash games. All is well and good. He wants to sell said flash games. Again, all well and good and captialism and all that jazz. He apparently can't do his own artwork for it. Okay, so he decides to hire some artists to help him out. Everybody wins right? Artists are getting paid, the flash gamer is getting his game, and everybody's happy.

Except what? He's not paying the artists fairly? AND WRITES A FUCKING ARTICLE ON HOW TO HIRE AN ARTIST AND CHEAT THEM OUT OF PROFIT FOR SOMETHING THEY WORKED ON? Hold the fucking train here.

Anywho, read this fucking bullshit. Seriously, this makes me happy that I have no interest in selling my art and just give it away to people I care about as gifts rather than commissions. Less of a chance that I'll be burned by this kind of bullshit.

Original article: Hello. My name is Asshatery.

Stuff I'm peeved as hell about:

How to find an artist:

I recommend looking through art sites such as Deviantart for an artist which suits your taste, or any other site that has a decent art community such as Newgrounds. There’s a few reasons you want to find an artist this way. First of all, they’re cheaper. These guys aren’t used to making a lot of money for their work so they will be more appreciative of the chance even if they are being payed slightly less than what professionals are payed. Second of all, they’re better. The quality of art you can find through this method is pretty amazing, and the vast amount of artists guarantee you will find something that suits your tastes and needs. Unless you have a specific price you want to pay in mind, ask THEM what they are willing to charge for the project. This usually causes people to give offers that are lower than what you normally pay, and will make them happy.

Artist payment:

Make it clear to whomever you hire that they will not be payed until ALL the work is completed, unless it is completed by a predefined date, and unless it matches or exceeds expectations. Sometimes I have an issues getting all of these things, but if you give someone a job they’re expected to treat it as so even if they’re just a hobbyist. Paying prior to the completion of the project is a bad idea for several reasons. Only paying for the finished work encourages the artist to finish their job faster, if you pay up front the artist has no motivation to finish quickly. Similarly, if you pay up front the artist could disappear and you may never get what you payed for!

And a comment that the host of their article likes. Which really pisses me off: Under a cut, because this is getting long.
Fucker. )

Also:
His nick on sites like Newgrounds, Kongregate and Armor Games is xdragonx10. Spread the word about this article. Go tell him (politely) what is wrong about his business policy. Avoid his games if at all possible. Show him that what he's doing is coming back to bite him in the ass and not earning him one more cent.

I mean really WHAT THE FUCK MAN. Spreading the word because this whole thing is absolute bullshit.

Peace,

WTF. REALLY. psycho

My coworkers think I'm GOD. )

Daily meme time )

So...it's officially been 10 years today since my mom's religious freak-out that has basically made me hide everything I am from her. From my art, to my stories, to the shows I watch, or even like. It's weird, how much has changed, and how much she mellowed out since then. I still won't show her anything, because I don't want to be called the devil child again and have the entire family look at me like I was this spawn of Satan for liking dragons and drawing them. It's just...weird. 10 years is a long time...

peace,

needs to stop being depressing psycho

So...
last night at work... )

Something good did happen though. I was able to get someone added to Thursdays, although it was that fat lazy bitch that shouldn't be a manager. At least she can do my dishes and stay out of my way. Or stock. Depends on how mean I'm going to be because seriously, after last night, I'm done with her bullshit.

Advanced Shift Management classes start like, right after my birthday, so wish me luck! It's all the way up in Brighton, which is like, 2 hours away from where I live. :\ Not sure why it couldn't be closer like Basic Shift Management was. Most likely is going to be just as pointless. I know what I'm doing Monday though: buying asstons of Monster. It's like, from 7 am to something and I'm usually going to bed at 7 or 8... It's going to be interesting.

...as I remember my shift starts at 9:30 instead of 10:00 tonight...GOD DAMN IT.

Peace,

needs a new fucking job psycho
