Ashton Deroy, writing on my CBD mood stabilizer.

Ashton Deroy writes: This blog is going to be more of a journal entry & less of a rant. Not that what I talk about on the blog isn’t important to me. My last podcast on over emphasis on independence in feminism is an important manner to me. That is mainly because I think Feminism has the duty at this time to teach healthy adult relationships to society. Not just in the matter of romantic relationships but also family relationships. I can think of so many times feminism with my Step Sister and Step brother needed to be the answer to their fight. I think the reason I get so passionate about feminism is because I have a lot of soul siblings of all genders I really care about. As I said some of them are independent and some of them are more dependent. I feel strongly that they deserve to be treated well & understood. A lot of my writing has to do with creating a narrative on Feminism that means something to those people.

To talk about something else personal though. My writing on this blog & online can take a really depressed & anxious tone a times. I am just going to be blunt with my readers. I have Autism, ADHD, Anxiety & Depression. Honestly I think you can sum that all up under the fact I have Autism since a lot of those things are a comorbidity to Autism.

A way to look at comorbidity2

I want my readers to know, sometimes it feels like my brain is just cooked. I think that is part of what makes me a good write & sometimes part of what can make me a bad writer. Again that is not a statement to undermine things that matter. Take for example:

  1. I don’t think Call centers are Socially responsible of members of the community.
  2. I feel Conservatism is cruel to disabled people. Conservatives say things like disabled people are entitled to less money in the workplace, that Disability is ad drain and that I am not a valued member of society. Here is the thing I want to work, but I don’t drive. I use transit and I need someone to create a schedule I can keep to & plan around.
  3. I think this pandemic does highlight the biggest values of Socialized Societies.
  4. I prefer labor rights to Universal Basic Income.

Maybe I could afford to change my presentation style on these topics though. I can openly admit that I am considering that. However, I want to be able to do that and still have my point heard. Sometimes it seems like people don’t want to stop being abusive until you make a fuss! The deliberate button pushers of prejudice!

At Keys Unemployment center in the Youth Job Connection program. We talked about things we were grateful for everyday in our journal. I feel like what I need to do now? Is repeat that action to conclude this blog. So I am grateful for…

  1. A woman becoming Impact Wrestling world Champion. By beating a male wrestler.
  2. My CBD, because this is the most pain relief I’ve had in days. Especially with the pandemic shaking up my routine so much.
  3. The friendly progressive people of Kingston Ontario. I don’t say this enough but people in Kingston Ontario are the nicest people.
  4. People providing Essential services. Workers are the hearts of our communities and many of you are not being paid enough. Especially those currently working in Grocery stores & Hospitals. These are two of the most high risk jobs in the community of Kingston Ontario.
  5. I am grateful I have heard call centers are sending some people to just handle calls from home. Yes this needs to be an option to reduce the spread of the virus.
Ashton Deroy & Autism weed
5.52% THC and 7.44% CBD. What I smoke by myself? Was picked out special with a nurse due to the fact I have a low tolerance. This allows me to use and function normal on my own.

Ashton Deroy: CannSell Certificate of Achievement & Business Diploma.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ashton Deroy Writes: I am not kidding when I say I hold these two achievements in the same regard. My Community College Business Diploma & my CannSell achievement certificate. I have legitimately wanted to work in the Marijuana Market ever since I first went to college in 2012. Now it is something that is actually achievable and I am very excited. 

 I think seeing these two things together just makes me realize I have been able to combine two very different sides of myself successfully. The professional deterministic side that got myself to learn finance, Supply Chains & Statistics. Then there is the Hippie who knows about the history of Cannabis, All about Socialism & bases their modern style blogging on the old works of Social Democrats of the past. Whether I am a hippie or a Business person, I am just proud of the fact I was able to put these two achievements side by side and see a broader image of myself. 

About the AGCO CannSell Course? 

AGCO

You can click the image of the website if you want to take it yourself. What you should know? The course is $70 & it takes 5 hours to complete. I kind of thought it was cool though. I have been studying marijuana for some time. I was still able to learn about Canada’s legal history with Marijuana & about recent cases of cannabis intoxication and driving. 

As a vanity thing. I actually think if you are a huge cannabis nerd like me. You should get a CannSell Certificate. I can’t see any reason why not? Like it is kind of a verification that I take my passion for recreational marijuana seriously. Plus if you have studied marijuana as much as me. You will probably pass the test easy as well. 

This is a section for my resume here on the blog. I just think if I am mentioning my achievements. I should probably post a resume to. This blog is supposed to help with generating career leads.

Are you kept inside during the Co-Vid19 pandemic?

Try some cardiovascular exercise. These workouts help me keep sane while in isolation. I actually have a small cough myself. However, sometimes I find a mini martial arts workout can be good for a body that spends too long in bed. Also moving once every few hours helps improves your circulation which is great for pain reduction.

The other thing I have tried recently is T’ai Chi 

This is a 5 part workout I purchased on Google Play. I use it to re-align my chi. I also find mixing martial arts workouts effective with T’ai chi because I learn to move my hands more fluidly. Also it improves your reflexes and stance.

Now T’ai Chi does not look like much. I should warn you, it hurts like crazy! Like as much as Pilates hurt. T’ai Chi hurt about the same. No pain no grain & I know there will be flexibility improvements over time.

How having a paper route, taught me the opposite of discipline?

How having a paper route, taught me the opposite of discipline..png

Ashton Deroy writes: “Some jobs are not worth doing.” My brother used to explain to me when we were kids & even teenagers. We would frequently be in the cold busting our butts to collect $20-$30 bi weekly for a paper route. Something we distributed through the Trentonian publisher. They circulated their main paper & a Community Press paper in Trenton Ontario back then. “You see Ashton, if we worked at McDonald’s we would get an hourly wage. Or we could just be at home sitting on the couch & watching TV.” This is when I learned in Trenton Ontario that some jobs are just not worth doing… 

I would continue to have paper routes & a little bit of income. Nothing really that worth wild. My brother on the other hand went to High School, had friends & knew how to ignore our parents when he needed to. Actually on that note it was our parents always pressuring me to take Paper routes. I would regrettably apply and take the jobs to my detriment. Kyle would be inside comfortable & basking in his intelligence on this issue.  “Some jobs are not worth doing.” This logic can be applied to… 

  • Call center jobs – Which pay bare minimum, grant employees no schedule control & makes you a disposable human resource. Shout out to S&P Data & Hinduja Global Solutions. Thanks for making family life worse in Quinte West & Belleville Ontario. You spoiled brats and selfish capitalists! 
  • Tim Horton’s jobs – I simply can’t imagine working for an employer who openly advocates for less labor rights. They have some mighty brass balls! I think one day this will contribute to their employees turning against the company. They are just a terrible company with no values & a profits only business model. 
  •  Paper routes – It should be a struggle to find paper boy workers. It is a pain in the butt to walk around in the winter & deliver papers. Just to walk around with $20 or $30 extra bucks. Kids have every right to refuse this boarder line slave labor. 

When I delivered papers as a kid & teenager here is what I learned? Some jobs serve the sole purpose of making people sick & permanently disabled long term. Many times when working the paper route I would get sick & wonder why I thought it was worth it. The truth is it wasn’t worth it. I hated coughing my guts out despite the fact back then I wasn’t a smoker.

Only joyless people need to fill every spare moment in their life with work & school. Forget what you see preached on your favorite Neo-Liberal & Conservative forms. If you need to fill all of your spare time with work & school. You are not capable of your own self-fulfillment. Back in High School when I had a paper route? I should of been focused on what I wanted to do. What did I want to do? I wanted to be on the Wrestling team, I wanted to workout at the gym with people my age & I wanted to study! Why did I need a paper route at all? The best I can come up with truthfully is there were times where my home was a rather joyless place. I think most paper delivery people are from joyless homes. This holiday season make sure you tip these poor teenagers.

What my “lazy” brother is doing now? Back when I took a paper route like a chump & my brother was sitting at home preaching to me about how some jobs are not worth doing. He was still working on things that matter. He is a nurse now, he makes bank & can afford his apartment. Me the person who worked their butt off from a teenager outward is verging homelessness. People do burn out & we need to stop acting like it is this imaginary thing. 

Not a lot of jobs in Belleville Ontario & Quinte West are worth doing. Despite what Meta Employment says in regards to their struggles with employees no showing interviews. We have to realize the quality of jobs are low in this area, no one is in the mood to shut up and just do it anymore! Every job needs to develop an attitude & benefits beyond a pay check. Otherwise the preparation needs to begin for a largely disengaged society.

I am committed to calling out Sexism, Transphobia & Racism.

Ashton Deroy Instagram.png

 

Ashton Deroy writes: Belleville Ontario & Quinte West has a massive problem with Sexism. This isn’t a fact I need to back with stats, because it is just innate common knowledge from within the community. Sexual harassment in the workplace isn’t so much a rarity here as it is a common occurrence from within the workplace. In my Sustainability proposal I did outline how Sexist behavior isn’t so much being addressed in the community. As much as it is being embraced as a regular part of the work culture in Hawkin’s Cheesies. However it is not an exclusive issue to this company.

Calling out unfair commercial practice.png

At Hinduja Global Services I witnessed my friend to be forced through arranged seating to be sat near a man who was not only a drug dealer! He was also trying to harass her for a pair of her panties. This is unacceptable! This should have never been allowed. Maybe if Hinduja Global Services in Belleville Ontario can’t commit to addressing sexism in the workplace they should lose the privilege to assign seating. 

I am now committed to calling out sexism. To start because this will be a radical shift for the culture of Bay of Quinte as well as Belleville Ontario. I am going to call out in the most radical fashion imaginable! I might be a pain in the neck about it, but it is going to happen. It is time to recognize this is a United Nations Sustainability commitment and I don’t consider changing sexist culture as a matter of free speech, I consider this a human rights issue! 

Not only sexism, but if I see Transphobia going forward. I am going to react! It is time Transgender people feel safer in our communities. Yet we continue to enforce culture of misgendering, back talking & bullying in our workplaces, charities & communities. If our municipal politicians are not going to address this. I will address these issues! I am seeing a lot of consistency with my opinions on the Federal level, but not provincially & not municipally & it is time for that to change.

 Commitment to call out racism. The reason I haven’t finished this blog is that I was still attending a college within Belleville Ontario that has a rather racist reputation. I am talking about Loyalist College. A place where there majority of people alienate our East Indian students. I am tired of aiding in environments where these potentially new Canadians feel less included & unwelcome. Personally anyone who comes to Canada to develop a skill & work is welcome in my books & I will no longer leave room for people to say otherwise. 

Racist Loyalist College

That picture is linked to a Google review link which widely associates Loyalist College with racism. It is something the college must work on if they are going to continue to be an attractive option for International students. 

This is a personal commitment I will continue to use in my educational, professional and leisure pursuits. I will be on social media & out about connecting with marginalized members of the community and talking to them about their concerns. Then I will come to this high traffic Independent Belleville website & I will start giving the real news of the people of progressing these problems. Through my tag research & website statistics, I have learned I have a presence in this community. This is a presence I fully intend to use for the better. 

Commitment on abortion: This will continue to be an political topic I support not reopening. I will strive to censor pro-abortion groups or defame people associated with these groups. This is a division I will not compromise on! It is women of my income level who require unrestricted access to these services. Not the wealthy moralistic controlling members of society who are oppressing in my class & whom I continue to loathe! 

Instagram Statement: Call out #Sexism -It is apart of our Sustainability pact with the United Nations. – #BayofQuinte & #BellevilleOntario can not continue #Sexist culture – It is time to change sexism & sexual harrassment in the workplace. Much like I saw working at #HawkinsCheesies , #hindujaglobalservices , #Spdata , #Concentrix

Work life balance. My employment demands.

Work life balance

Administrative Assistant resume 2019

Ashton Deroy Writes: Okay so a week or two ago my roommate was hospitalized in  Belleville Ontario for stress. She has been working a job and going to college & it had started to catch up with her. I actually have been looking for a job to… It is nice to know what I will likely have in store for myself.

When are we as a people going to get this work life balance thing correct? Should I toy around with violently throwing around some Executives, schedulers & human resources representatives? At least until they get it right. (That was a joke)

In the interest of promoting my self interests as a worker. I have demands before I am to take any job. I want to work, but not at the expense of health & well being. I also want to get ahead, so here are my demands:

  1. Employment must be accessible by transit – Nothing for me is going to sustain otherwise. I can not afford a car & I can not afford to keep getting rides with people who have other things to do. I either get home & back by bus, or we can’t work together. That is just sound logic.
  2. Must accommodate bus schedule – I am not busing to work, then walking 2 hours home at night. That is not sane…
  3. Must have work life balance – Not only do I need two consecutive days off, I need to know when they are? Imagine that, I have social obligations and medical appointments. I happen to be human. There is a movement going around where employers must give 2 weeks notice in schedule changes, or get written consent to change schedules. I am very interested in that policy, because I have no interest in promising some $14 an hour job my complete 100% availability. It is called “give & take.” Can I get some?
  4. Must be $15 an hour minimum – I am going to go ahead and tell you as far as self-governance goes. I am already on the new minimum wage. I do not care about when the legislation changes because I need to pay my own bills. If your CEO makes mad money, you can pay me $15 hourly!
  5. I’m not signing away my communication rights- I did this in telemarketing & call centers and I will never do it again. I will sign something to not communicate confidential information. However if I disagree with a corporate policy, if I see poor social management, and if I see you treat your employees like they are disposable. Guess what employers? I am writing about it. I don’t care what I signed at S&P Data in Trenton Ontario. I think they are disrespectful, they treat their employees like garbage and the Executives need to seriously be punched in the face. (I don’t condone violence, but I am passionate about authority figures speaking to me & my colleagues with respect! If you don’t it proves you don’t think about me as a person who could potentially react.)

Time off is my time & I am entitled to it. No job is entitled to me 100% whenever they want. No job can tell me what my opinion is! I am a citizen of Canada not of the corporation who pays me. I have obligations to my sense of self, my health, my finances & transportation. If companies can’t learn to respect that, then employment is not the dialogue we need to be having with companies. Is it readers?

Quinte West & Belleville Ontario. Life is about leisure not labor.

Why Marx was Right

Ashton Deroy Writes: Right now I am reading Why Marx was right. The quote below, “A good life is about leisure, not labor.”  captures the kind of attitude I believe Belleville Ontario & Quinte West must adapt if we are to heighten our quality of life. To HGS Belleville Ontario . The history I dictate will indicate you guys never understood this fact of life. “When do I fit in my leisure activities?” Whatever they may be, should not be approached as a question, so much as a demand! What do we really mean when we say that? “If you aren’t going to give me my own time. Why should I support your establishment?!” It is something workers ought to shout while physically twisting Human Resources or an executive’s arm!

I think we should seriously consider retracting the social license to operate for places such as call centers & factories that mistreat workers. You can already see the social fabric changing around these places. At my family events, you can see older sensitive people kindly giving the confiding advice to mistreated workers in Belleville & Quinte West. You see them kindly saying, “You have to quit your job. If they don’t start seeing pushback they will never learn.” 

 

“A good life is about leisure, not labor.”

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?

3 horrible truths of the broke entrepreneur

Dedicated to: Loyalist College Students.

From: Ashton Deroy, Failed Web design Entrepreneur. 

Intro: You should not become an Entrepreneur. Let us face it the sad truth is you went to Loyalist College because you had no idea what to do for your seven-year plan. Chances are you still don’t have a seven-year plan. Why would you start risking your own time & money here? Here are 3 reasons not to be an Entrepreneur. Most successful mid-corps were started/maintained by a family with an already existing body of wealth. I learned this working for Greenwich Associates a financial research & consulting firm where I interviewed CEOs, CFOs, and Presidents of mid-corp organizations.

  1. You are not your own boss – It is not fun to say but someone usually has leverage in business & it often is not the person selling products or services. It can be your supply chain people, your bill collectors, the people you applied for a grant with or even your customers. Ever worked in a call center? Those are communications jobs designed to manage B2C & B2B relationships. Those jobs suck… Why would you want to do that 16 hours a day instead of 10 hours a day for less money?
  2. Being broke – Most entrepreneurs need to borrow & use their own capital to even get to the market but there are no guarantees. Our markets are saturated with products & services as well as substitutes that eliminate opportunities. In the case of my business, a lot of professional communications jobs are eliminated by self-service digital marketing services. This includes logo generators, Kijiji & Facebook.
  3. Hating what you do – Multiple times I have quit my digital marketing business. Even after gaining momentum and gaining contacts. You can fall down 100 times & it does become discouraging. I am a natural sales person but it doesn’t mean rejection doesn’t slow me down. Rejection slows down everyone. 

Listen if you are a Business student in college. You are probably being given a lot of hype for starting your own company. Don’t fall for it! Be an opportunist, not a dead-set entrepreneur. Here is a cliche I love, “Work smarter, not harder.” If working smart means a 9-5 with a pension and a pain in the a** boss. That is fine. There is no shame in being someone’s b****!
