It seems feeling stressed and overworked was in fact the reason why I was so unproductive and depressed.

Last week, we were told that the payroll would be really tight, so our hours would be cut. This week, I only have two days of work, and they have already passed. The moment they were done and over with, I become insanely productive.

I stayed up yesterday night because I was roleplaying with a friend and I drank too much green tea (green tea has caffeine). Despite being sleep deprived, I greeted my father (He gets up way earlier than I normally do), drove him to work, got myself some breakfast (a rare occurrence), went food shopping to get back on my diet that I have shirked for weeks (When I'm off it, I get depressed and unproductive way more often). When I got home, I got to work cleaning my room, brought my little brother's bed frame back into his room (We needed it in my room because relatives stayed over some weeks ago and we hadn't bothered to put things back until now), got to doing my laundry. I finally hit the sack after the caffeine wore off. And now? I'm about to finish work on Chapter 5 of Midnight Sun.

I really needed this.

I recorded Chapter 5 of Midnight Sun nearly a week ago, and yet it took today for me to finally start editing it. It's not like I've been doing much else with my week besides working, so why did it take so long?

I spoke with my friend Alfred Kamon - creator of Midnight Sun - and he says that perhaps the reason why I haven't been productive is because I'm always stressed out. Sounds about right.

Hopefully this will all change soon. I recently applied to Costco. I have over a year's worth of experience at this discount store, with managers that are supportive and like me, so I believe my chances at getting this job are pretty high. Not gonna hold my breath though.

Additionally, I plan to get out of my current Youtube Partnership in favor of one that appears to be a lot better, but I have to wait for my current contract to end. That happens in about one more year. When that happens, I'll at least be making more money on my channel. Nothing to live off of, but anything helps.

Mm... I'm sure this will all pass at some point. Maybe next week will be better.

Working at a discount store isn't too bad. The pay is garbage, but the demands placed on you are simple. Bring customer-misplaced items to their appropriate area in the store, bring the boxes left by the big truck to the correct area in the stock room, restock items in the front, keep the store clean and tidy, help customers find things, ring up customers at the register. Easy peasy, right?

One problem. The job will make you hate humanity.

In this store, I have met some of the most arrogant, selfish, insecure, impatient, cheap, and oblivious people I have ever seen. My childhood and teenage years had quite a bit of trauma that resulted in my misanthropy, but as those fires started to dim with age, this place came in with some new logs.
