Thoughts from a night shift in a front desk

in #freewrite8 months ago (edited)
This is probably the most useless shift in the whole world. I think that out of the 8 hours my shift lasts, I effectively work on hostel stuff around 30 minutes, that includes telling drunk people to shut up, asking couples to stop making out in the common areas, solving minor problems like doors not working or socks being lost and found and such. It's a pretty easy job. Perhaps an intelligent chimpanzee could do it. I know, that doesn't speak great things of me given that I'm the one doing it right now.

Well, it serves me right. It's a lot of free time and it happens that I need that to do OCD, Steem Onboarding and curation stuff which is Steem related. It also allows me to focus in learning german and do more research about which city I'm going to end up. It's still in between Berlin and Vienna, but Berlin is kicking Vienna's ass, the more I research, the less I like the Austrian capital and the more I like the German city.

But who knows. In fact, nobody knows exactly if I'll like one better than the other, unless I try them both. So this is what's going to happen - in case everything goes according to plan: I'll go to Berlin on the 28th of February and will stay there for 3 weeks, if I end up loving it, I'll stay longer, perhaps for a 3 month language course, and then I'll see whatup. In case I don't like Berlin, I'll enlist in a language course in Vienna beginning in April, and see how I like Vienna.

I might be traveling to nearby cities every other weekend to see if there's another city I enjoy the most and assess if it's a good option to study there. Worst case scenario, it's june and I hated Berlin and Vienna and I have to pick a University in a city. I'm guessing that by then I'll have broaden my horizon by a lot, and I'll be able to make a more informed decision.

Ok ok, but that's not the point of this freewrite, which I reckon will be short because my last two posts have been long as fuck and I have to have some variety you know? Otherwise the 6 people who read my posts might get bored of the same post style. Well, the point of making this post is because I liked this selfie. Yeah, I know I sound like a 16 year old instagram girl that wants attention.

But to be honest, I shaved a couple of days ago and I like how it looks. After several months of not shaving, a change is good, especially because of the fact that the skin gets irritated with the Caribbean weather and with the sun every day shining on me, it's better to have a clean face. Let's not mention that the heat sucks when you have a beard.

It's 5:28 am and I'm getting tired. I already got so many things done but I can't keep going, I'm dead tired. This freewrite will have to end a bit earlier than what I thought. Either way, the point of freewrites is to clear my head, and I managed to do it right now, I got some ideas out of my head and now I can rest a bit - and think about all those other things I didn't get rid of with this write up.

In fact you know what, I think I'm going to use the last hour and a half I still have left to do some excercise here - some pushups, pullups in the stairs, calf and leg exercises and whatnot, in the end, there's nobody around just the way it's been since 2 am. Damn this useless night shift.

I hope you have a great beginning of the weekend Steemians!


Well, I suppose...sometimes it is the "seemingly useless" things that keep the cogs turning in life :)

Nice hat collection you got there :)

Awesome article!
You're right: we spend most of our time in a useless way.
To be lenient, 90% of the products on our planet are unnecessary or destructive, so 90% of our time and energy are invested in a useless way.

  • Why?

This happens because people create demand for these awesome products.
When we're born we don't want to self-destroy, still,

  • What do we see in stores?

Children buy poison and stuff that are labeled as food even though they have zero value (with fiat currency or crypto currency) and consume these products because after 12 years of education system:

  • Children don't even know what is food or even worse,
  • They’re too fragile to care about themselves, about their health.

Nobody addresses the cause of our problem: lack of education in the education system. Tell me:

  • How many great stuff are possible as long as the education system is a bad joke?

I don't know and I don't think there are enough.
There is a lot of hype about a better future thanks to the blockchain world.

  • What's the point of all the hype about a better future as long as people are too fragile to work on the cause?

Hello @anomadsoul those free writings where you express the most hidden of your thoughts I like them very much and I don't think that only 6 people read you that was a good joke, hehe

It's good that you have the opportunity to know several places and cultures of the world, I will travel with your posts to those places.

And what happened to the trip you had scheduled for London?

The girl who inspired that post, has already vanished from your thoughts?

One question, you still haven't submitted the results of the 2019 contest, right?

I'm very curious and you have me anxious to see the results.

This is not bad to appreciate yourself and you look great without beard ^_^ Is this your collection of hats ..?
It seems you have some plans between Germany and Austria so I wish you all well and go with the flow of ease and well-being 😊

Wow, you have a lot of plans to go to several countries and settle there, of course, university and language course are important to know the place because there are some references and we will also know how we will socialize and find things we like from that place. Will you travel later to Indonesia? Who knows. We hope your trip fits on schedule you expect and we wait for your writing later. Keep steem on sir @anomadsoul. Congratulation for new look after shaving. Blessing

Hello sir @dobartim, why you unvote my comment? Is there wrong in my words??

I am the 7 person who reads you but I always like to do it. Your selfies are great, your smile is from a young guy and your writing is fresh. It's great.

Ja,ja,ja... Con toda seguridad andabas ocioso. Te veré con ojos de madre y te digo que te ves muy bien hijo. Me encantan los escritos que tienen un punto de comicidad, que me sacan una sonrisa. Es importante drenar las emociones negativas y ahí entra la risa en juego. Feliz día!

You need to find some drunk germans to tell to shut up, at least that way you can kill two birds with one stone!
