What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay and I can not stop helping or making people’s days. Today I had a really terrific Thursday. Its not what I did, its how I got to live out my beliefs and how I can really have a chance to be me. That is what great about living in the US and being at St. Mary’s. Today at work, I helped cheer up some ladies who had to drive down here for buyback, updated the catalog of the Bookstore. After work, I helped others around campus, helped a friend in calculus, officiated a volleyball game, ate a whole large pizza, chilled with my buds, and that is not everything that I did today. Also I made many people’s days along with joking around and got ahead on production.
What made today great was the productivity and how I cheered many people up and got a few laughs in. It never fails to amaze me how the small things can really make a big difference. Its just the wonders of nature and life altogether. When working today in the bookstore today, I got to cheer some women up who had a long drive by doing my Ravens talk and pretending to be the referee and helped a family find gifts for their family and met many alumni families. I enjoy seeing their smiles and how they said I made their day. I’m just too funny I guess. Also I got to help my bosses be less stress and update the website and they complimented me for being fast and productive. I don’t do things for compliments, I do things to make people’s day and to keep things moving.
So those of you that are complaining about how your job does not seem much use or anything, try to find more ways to be efficient. Nothing will cheer your bosses up more rather than showing ways to save money or do things efficiently to get ahead of their plans. Also finding things to do and getting ahead will encourage promotions to manager and helped my bosses encourage me to apply for a manager position. With that in mind, I strive to improve my effort each day. It may not work, but with determination and my energy it works 95% of the time. Also cheering people up will make you want to come to work. You need the money, might as well enjoy the process you know. Then you know that your paycheck will come with happiness as you have earned it and there is nothing like an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. Then I enjoy the pizza I eat along with appreciating the stuff I have, because I worked for them. There is nothing like feeling good that you earned everything. Your job is where you show your awesomeness. To keep things real there, I use payment jokes and I love being chatty. Some wonder why I don’t shut up and have so much energy? I don’t shut up and I have so much energy, because I am passionate and want to spread my happiness and loosen up the pressure. We need to smile once in awhile you know.
I have some inspirational stories here.
My friend Bethany said about her working with at-risk youth is “The most rewarding thing is overhearing a child, who thinks he’s stupid and has constantly expressed his hate for school for the whole year I’ve known him, proudly telling his friends that he can’t wait to go to college.” You inspire me Bethany. Also this youth can have hope and go chase his dreams. Best of luck to you my friend. You are not stupid. You are awesome in your own way. This is a living example of how some help and a few hours a day or week can make a difference.
On an NFL note, to inspire you and show you job enjoyment here is a funny video http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-films-presents/0ap2000000118046/NFL-Films-Presents-Double-duty. Double Duty and my third favorite referee Gene Steratore. Gene really knows how to bring passion to work and how he keeps order while still being funny. Hope to see you officiating in Baltimore this coming season Gene!
Happy Memorial Day and welcome Summer. A loud thank you to those who sacrifice themselves to protect our liberty and rights.
Carpe Diem and YO YO YOLO
