544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario. The Weird communal living arrangement.

 

Ashton Deroy writes: Imagine a place with 5 bedrooms rooms, 1 living room, 1 kitchen and 1 bathroom. Now imagine living there with 3 other full time tenants and also 2 possible guests for an Air B&B or 1 other part time tenant. Now imagine the 2 months of headaches that follows. It is an environment of rotating bodies, too much closeness & the flashing thought of  “Hey who is that random person?”

To perceive a place such as this is to perceive a very fast approaching headache. It is establishing a goal for 3 people who are complete strangers to also live in a harmony of arbitrary rules & regulations. Needless to say what ever Jango Property Management is trying to do. It is psychotically unstable  with such a small shared communal living environment.

Lets face it all that plus the small space, lack of appropriate boundaries & the fact truth be told the 3 full time tenants had huge personalities was a track guaranteed for disaster. In fact you could easily write a book filled with conflicts to fill it. Like that book this house was filled with disaster scenarios. We had constant conflict. Also an entire lack of normalcy. There is something inherently about the top description paragraph I used that seems either like it is all part of some psychotic math question or a plan for dystopic future communal homes.

Facts are facts. Not everyone in the home needs a social life. However some people really should get them. Even if it means exhausting the effects & negative symptoms of over night guests. It took a little bit realize that there were only two possible reasons for a home to act under social contracts in this manner. This is either some kind of religious cult house. Or there are some serious lacking interpersonal Social Skills in this house that prevent people from forming adult interpersonal relationships. As usual the answer was a bit of both.

To people who read this blog… I am getting kind of tired of being exposed to uncivilized types who don’t live by a kindness first policy. They just expect people to help in an Air B&B without any special access to utility of the home. Just an implied expectation of being put to work for someone else’s interests. Whatever this is? It must be a plan to worsen the exploitation existing comfortably in Capitalism already. Or in other words?

A literal scam. Yep I compromised on the fact I am not supposed to live in a place that bans me from having overnight guests if I pay rent. (This is why I look at places with my brother from now on.) The idea is to pay rent and have some independence. Not to pay rent and live romantically abstinent!

What happened to me? From living in a cool stoner house in Belleville Ontario with actual cool people. To living in a Communal Air B&B on a street where human beings will literally sometimes take shits on. Yes I am saying this set up is dirty, gross & weird is simply an understatement. Also I think it is also driven me crazy renting the room across from this…

Construction

Not ruling this out: The construction project across the road has been waking me up at the crack of dawn for quite some time. I will say a lot of my time in this place has made me question if my sanity is slipping between my fingers. Lets just bare in mind most days I wake up to bad dreams of chainsaws masquerading as the construction noises across the road. There is a very real possibility that this has played a huge role in my loss of sanity at this address. Just saying, do not rule it out!

Positive notes to self for the way out and moving forward. I quit smoking tobacco again although it seems like a good way to tell if I am in my personal hell to an outsider is for them to just see me with a cigarette. If Ashton Deroy is holding a tobacco cigarette you can literally assume I am saying, “Fuck it I’d rather be dead.” When have I ever hidden that?  What am I afraid I am saying by writing it? The negative effects of cigarettes are taught in elementary school. That is just an objective truth about most people who smoke now. On some level they are choosing an action that at some point after done long enough will kill them. Although through overcoming loneliness & seeking company with other adults. I will survive and I will quit smoking.

Transgender Fitness: How dance exercise helps with stereotypical feminine expression?

Ashton Deroy Writes: Hopefully this isn’t news for my readers but I identify as Gender Queer. I used to say in High School that the male gender was flexible enough for me to be feminine. Now I just identify as both masculine and feminine or in other words Gender Queer. Season 30 Episode 7 Werkin Mom Episode of the Simpsons, Homer Simpson says, “I guess these days it is okay for everyone to be everything.” Yeah, that sums up being genderqueer perfectly. Even though it is not as intellectual as one might want.

If I were training a Transgender Female client at a gym. I would recommend Zumba & Dance workouts. As far as learning & mastering forms of feminine expression. I can think of no better workout than dance for Transgender women to learn more feminine mannerisms. In fact, dance as a feminine expression can be traced back as a feminine expression as far as the Veiled dancers in 100 BC. From what I can gather from the artwork below the Veiled dancer was majestic & a form of performance artist for their time.

Veiled dancer

For me personally, dance exercise shows me what feminine moves I can do and which ones I can’t do. I have to keep my queer flame going as lively as possible. To me that isn’t going to be done with the butch workouts I do to tone my arms. I need a little loose expression, I need to shake my hips and move my feet. Also as an added bonus dance exercises have added a little bounce to my walk. This way I do not look as miserable when I am walking.

Besides dance, you may want to focus on workouts that shape particular areas of your body. I suggest mostly focussing on core & hips. Since many people born male didn’t grow up using a dance that worked from these areas of the body. They often don’t know how to do the feminine dancing from these movements outward. For me, it has been about 4 years of self-practicing dance and I have only now just finally gotten a little more flexibility in my hips.

Here are some more benefits of Dance exercise:

  1. Improved function of your heart & lungs
  2. Improving muscle tone & even strength
  3. Increased physical confidence
  4. Better social skills
  5. Improved balance
  6. Increased aerobic fitness
  7. Weight Management

According to Better Health 

I can’t say enough about the benefits of dance! I get giddy just thinking about how good it is for you. I think of dance as the spiritual equivalent of brushing your teeth. The best reason to dance is to nurture your own soul.

Now if you are not a Transgender female or even genderqueer, but you still are intrigued at the prospect of dance exercise. I still say go for it! The purpose of this article is to get people thinking about the types of recommendations we can make for the purpose of Transgender fitness. I also think my readers would be interested to know that I don’t just focus on learning the masculine movements of fighting. I also focus on learning the feminine movements of the art of dance.

No excuses readers, go out there & start dancing! 😀

It is time to stop using the “S” word so freely. Politics with Ashton Deroy.

Stop saying the S word

Ashton Deroy writes: Does this sound familiar? “Liberals & New Democrats are socialists. It is not the job of the state to look after the needs of the people!” Liberals & New Democrats are not socialists. What is socialism? Google defines socialism as, “a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.” We still live in a society where ownership mostly controls means employment & achieves the majority of wealth. In other words, Ontario is still Capitalist. 

How do I prove we are not socialist or even toying with it politically at this time? Well first off neither of our major left-wing parties in Canada is socialist, social programs are not the main symptom of socialism & if we attack the left as socialist, we are setting up a kind of revolution. The deep thought I want to set you up for if we call them socialist do they become socialists? I think as we go on your will realize the answer might become yes.

Why is it time to stop using the “S” word? Conservatives and Alt-Right people are throwing around the word socialism to describe anyone on the left? I am a Liberal. What does that mean? It means I am open to new behaviors that disregard traditional values. In Canada, I also consider Liberalism’s backbone is that we don’t oppress the working class anymore than is necessary to have a functional working economy while caring for the welfare of our vulnerable population. In the case of our New Democrats, they are more left-wing, but still not socialist because they do have a primary focus on job creation

Social programs are not the main features of socialism. The increased use of them has far more to do with health epidemics, no-accommodation in the workplace & an inability to complete High School education. What happens in a socialist society? Usually, the government puts out so much in social aide that it no longer makes sense to work in Canada. Our income assistance programs are quite intent on getting people into long term employment, I can testify as someone who was on assistance recently. 

Now it is time for the “R” word. No, it is not the one disparage people with autism. It is the word revolution. In the past, I have made reference to the revolution as a positive thing. It is not a positive thing that left-wing people are going “hmmm, socialism that doesn’t sound bad!” It does not help that Ontario’s premiere is being largely accused of political warfare on the lower class. This only serves to enhance the problem. Add to that the right-wing Conservative/Libertarian males who treat anyone who can’t work for their own income as less than a person. Yes, these are things that will lead to a revolution and the scary part is poor people commit the most violent crimes, poor people have organized themselves in prior decades to have some of the most violent human rights protests in our history! Take for example Stonewall. They treat LGBTQ2s people like outsiders of society and they fought back! Not good, not good at all! If you abandon the lowest class of society are low-income immigrants, refugees and disabled Canadians they will not hesitate to steal, kill & possibly organize an aggressive socialist movement.

Are you using the “S” word to provoke arguments with the left-wing Canadians? You need to think twice about this. A violent socialist revolution is being provoked in our country by the growth of our Progressive Conservatives, class warfare and simply telling the lowest class of people that helping them survive in difficult economic times is simply too much! Accommodation in the workforce, workplace Unions and or an emergency income is by no means not too much to ask for. Continued exploitation and aggravating an aggravated class of people is a dangerous road to explore, so put the “S” word away and be cautious.

The WordPress Manager, I’m back with merit

cropped-cartoon-pro-centennial-park-trenton-ontario.png

Hey guys, 

I am back and ready to re-boot this project with a solo sales effort. I actually pitched this website management service in my Entrepreneur’s class at Loyalist College & got a 94%. Unfortunately, I don’t let myself feel pride for much other than making money & selling stuff. Here is my 4 step plan to make sure this incarnation takes off for this project. 

Step 1: 

Find new portfolio clients. I need to get in the habit of finding these motivated clients & really growing their projects from sales, to advocacy and public relations. 

Step 2: 

Investing in Fiverr partners. In 2018 I had tried to partner with Soundcloud stations, designers & PR companies. 

Step 3

Write or sell every day. My current job at a factory already tires me out physically. There is no reason not to sit at my computer once a day and hunt for contacts or write an article. I am going to make a lot more impact by dedicating to this process than I will focus on anything else right now. 

Step 4: 

Try Facebook & Instagram advertising again. On one hand, some of the changes on these platforms bum me out. On the other hand, it is still the only platform where I have had success bringing in a client. 

What we have achieved so far? 

  • 109 WordPress followers
  • One client
  • 94% pitching this idea in Entrepreneurs class 
  • Buying back the AshtonDeroy.com web domain. (I let it go a few years ago

Minors and Technology. Why I favor monitoring?

Minors and technology

Ashton Deroy Writes: I used to be one of the most Libertarian pro-tech people you would ever meet. I thought kids needed to learn computer proficiency fast as possible, schools needed to bend the curriculum to be more computer & mobile oriented and lastly we need to make sure all kids have access to a computer. I don’t think think that anymore… My views have changed with the exposure of people legally recognized as minors exposure to sex apps, drug culture & child predators. 

The first reason my views began changing was because of something that happened on GrindR in 2015. I had realized someone I was talking to was 16 years of age and they were on an app whose primary purpose was trolling for sex. Well I suppose I was on Plenty Of Fish doing the exact same thing at 17. It still worries me because Plenty Of Fish was like a casual dating site & GrindR was more like a “f*** me in a bathroom stall kind of place.” I encouraged the kid to leave the site as it wasn’t safe for them to use. This was when my opinion first began changing and it only gets worse. Someone really should be looking at their teenager’s phone and saying, “What is Grindr?” Or they should know, because it clearly isn’t educational.

The second part that began shifting my brain on children needing monitoring on technology happened in 2015 as well. My younger cousin used a phrase for smoking weed everyday (SWED) .  To my knowledge this kid has never even seen me & my brother smoke weed. However he had exposure to YouTube and it was enough for him to use the expression. Frig I’d rather kids imitate Sponge Bob than Imitate stoners! Which made me only further change my opinion on kids and tech.  If you don’t smoke weed around your kids. Why do you expose them to the adult culture of it?

The last part that really bugs me is the mix of child predators & even under aged nudity you are seeing online. FYI Instagram moderators could really use to clean things up! I am pretty sure kids are being exploited on Instagram and some of them getting paid for it via apps such as Only Fans. This kind of stuff just really grosses me out…  Parents should really be catching & preventing these things from happening. 

Just in my opinion I am getting to a point now where I am pro-monitoring minors on the internet. What we are seeing now? Is getting a bit gross. Kids are being exposed to an over sexualized culture, with drugs & predators. Unfortunately it hard to monitor these things with mobile media & computers. However I think it is necessary.

My idea to clean up Quinte West water & natural environments.

Waste in Quinte West water.png

Taxing large plastic contributors to pay for waste removal from our water & parks.

In August of 2018, I began posting on my Instagram and personal blog about an issue Quinte West had in regards to waste getting in to our natural water by Centennial Park. It has since been one year since I have tried bringing this to to the attention of the public & Mayor Harrison. Now we are writing this letter to an MP to create some kind of community responsibility in regards to the destruction of our waters. It is my belief that we need to either work towards banning plastics & fast food containers that are not biodegradable. What I want to achieve? I want to get our town to fund waste removal from the natural waters & surrounding areas.

Consumers of convenience store foods & fast food are some of the least Eco-friendly consumers on the planet. Every year massive amounts of containers, packaging and bottles are found destroying our natural habitats & water. In Quinte West I have photographed evidence of damage to our environment near centennial park, & in our Bay with the culprits being common convenience goods. I have also provided picture evidence to show that Quinte West’s volunteer waste removal efforts are not even close to enough aide. Which proves require a government collaborated executions to pay for waste removal efforts.

It is widely understood online that our town hosts some of the most wasteful industrial companies in plastics doing business in Quinte West. such as Nestle, other commonly high waste contributors such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co & Metro Inc all sell goods within in Quinte West. I believe even if it requires creating a government paid execution for waste removals in public and natural attraction areas in Quinte West to try to reduce damage on our ecosystem. This is where we create  job removing unnatural waste from environments where it can impact fish & mammals.

Reference: https://www.conservationcouncil.ca/en/most-plastic-waste-in-canada-leads-back-to-these-5-companies/

I want to conclude saying we need to do something to impact our damage to our ecosystem. I think the answer is to create jobs removing waste from areas where it can impact the natural environment. I am sure we can contribute to paying for these jobs by creating a tax on the output of plastics from these companies. If we do this next year we can save our environment for the future.

Contact our MP at: neil.ellis@parl.gc.ca . Ask him to take action to maintain Quinte West waters.

3 issues with Belleville public transit.

3 Issues with Belleville Public Transit.pngTrenton & Belleville Ontario are growing and are set to grow more with tourism. However one of the biggest issues I have brought up to the Bay of Quinte in the expansion is the lacking infrastructure for public transit. We have a lacking transit system that does not work, but we are still way too ready to tell people to rely on their livelihoods with a hit or miss bus. It is ridiculous.

Here are three clear problems with the Belleville Transit system.

  1. One way transit system– I get home from school faster than I get to school. Why is this? It is because my home comes after the college on the bus route. Meaning instead of the bus taking me the simple 5 K from my nearest stop to college. I am doing the entire trip back to the terminal before I can even get to the college.
  2. 1 hour until your next bus – If I miss a bus at 10 minutes after 7:00p.m. . I have to wait until 8:10pm just to be able to get home 5k in the cold
  3. It is legitimately faster to walk at times- For example if I just missed 12:10pm bus and I needed to get home in an hour. It would be faster for me to walk home then it would be to wait for the next bus to arrive.

Other issues with Belleville Public Transit

  1. No full functioning nightlife service– If we want to reduce impaired driving it is vital we have an ongoing service for popular pub nights. Neglecting that we need not think we have enough alternatives to prevent drunk driving.
  2. Lousy weekend service – Saturday & Sunday really should have full day bus service. They do not… I think we should fix that because if Belleville is going to handle tourism. They are going to need adequate bus systems.
  3. Over filled bus – We need to add more buses on routes like the #7. Just because right now people are close to sitting on the roof of the bus at this point. How do we fix this? Add another bus during peek use times. This is large part of why I avoid the bus at 8:00am , 12:00pm and 6:00pm because they are crowded bus times.
  4. Accessibility issues – The fact is the bus creates accessibility to work, education and broad transportation is violated. In the fact we don’t have a more functional bus service. Why don’t we expect disabled people to get anywhere past 8:00pm on a Sunday?

Capsim Review

Capsim

Ashton Deroy Writes: This is Capsim, a software that simulates running a mid-corp sensor company. It is simply “magical”. Magic 

“That is what I would like to write about my review of this software.” Unfortunately my review will be much more bleak. For starters I don’t understand the software, I do not feel like I am simulating a business experience and instructions are not quite clear. 

To start, I do not understand Capsim. Do you understand this report? Granted the little context I have provided is just about what I have had going in to this. Reports

I am pretty sure there are vital things I am missing to be able to participate in this simulator. The fact that other 4th semester Business students don’t understand it either leads me to believe you need some kind of beautiful mind to play this simulation. 

I do not feel like I am simulating an authentic business experience. There should be a lot more socializing and training before I just start messing with the entire company’s finances. All I am doing is playing with a spreadsheet. That is my honest opinion of Capsim, it is an overly complicated spreadsheet. We could do this all on Excel and save students the $64!

This is the first video you will get when you enter Capsim. The simulation is you selling sensors against other players. We have to manage and coordinate 4 different departments. Which again is just the users playing with numbers on a spreadsheet. 

My actual review is this, unless business is just entering random numbers on a spread sheet. This simulation is not enough! There is a certain amount of communications, advertising, sales & customer service involved in running a company that this simulation just will not touch on enough. I feel like I am not sure what this simulation prepares me for, which makes me think I have so little invested in how well I do in this class.

Do you use Capsim? Tell me your thoughts below:
