On my every day life

As I just get up early to go to work this morning for nothing. There was no work for me and I had been send back home. I am getting sick of this situation as sometime there’s work and some time not. It’s getting really frustrating. But it was part of my fault, as I didn’t call the previous evening to see if there was work for the next morning. I didn’t call because I taught there was enough work. Yesterday, I did my full shift, 4.5 hours, and everything went fine. Anyway, it’s a chance I can write about it, its provide at least a small release. I call it therapeutic blogging.

The trick with having multiple jobs is to remain calm when critical situation like this one happen. But I feel I deserve better treatment. In the morning, I am free from 8-9am until 3pm the latest. I can barely work 22.5 hours per week at the morning job I have right now and it’s been going on like this for several weeks now. And not only for me, for all other employees too.

I do not really want to get involve into job searching as I dislike searching for job and at a certain point, I just gave up, get into 3 jobs and that’s all. But now the plan is getting hurt a bit because one of them is just not working out correctly. I give myself until the end of the week to see what I will do about it. For now, I enjoy my free morning. But I am just not using the time correctly as I had my RRSP to look at and other. At this time, the situation is not critical. Last week, I work around 19 hours or so, and earn 200$. I just want to earn extra cash at this time.

I just take a quick look at my stocks and right now, PGF.UN is up to 9.83$, FTS is at 24.27$, SSI remain at 4$, which is better, and TIM down to 4.29$, BNS up at 31.52$, MX up at 12.04$, my funny BN down at 0.02 cents… and I could continue watching like this all day long, but it wouldn’t make any difference.

I had a friendly talk, if I can call with a colleague of mine. It was getting really quiet and than he begins to ask me why I was working at this place, the salary is low; I am bilingual (!!) and so on. The funny part came when he told me that I was the only one around who was a Quebecker and than, I told him proudly that I wasn’t a Quebecker, that I am from New Brunswick and so on… I didn’t go through the overall explanations, but part of the reason I have that night shift because its allow me to have a morning and beginning of the afternoon other job. And its also allow me to wok at another place during the weekend. But of course, I didn’t go through all this with him.

And another part of the reason why I remain like this is that before I had a well paying job, back in somewhere 2006, I was around 20$ per hour, but too much was taking away from the pay check – part of it was for the wealth benefits we were receiving and they were also taking money for my RRSP. That year, for the taxes, I was all mess up and really dislike the initiative, as I almost end up investing too much in my RRSP. Anyway, at the end, I was only touching 535$ after taxes per week on my pay check and I couldn’t take any other job with that one because it was too much. It’s after that job experience that I begin to make big money and invest in stocks and so on. And I am happily ever after and never regret the move.
