Preparing for a job interview can be tough, whether you’re sixteen years old and on the hunt for your first part-time job, or fresh out of school and looking for a new career to make you feel all adult-like, the whole process can seem like a genuinely stressful experience. I remember how nervous I felt going to my very first interview at a grocery store, I was sixteen and completely unaware of how to act or what to say (a trend that would continue for several other job interviews).
“Being a young person is tough on many levels, especially when you are old enough to do some things but prevented from others due to age. One very common complaint is not wanting to depend on the adults, parents or guardians around you for the money you want/need. In addition, what makes this even more difficult, is that younger people often cannot get a typical paying job due to their age.”
“If you would have asked me how I felt about shopping around the holidays two years ago, I would have told you that it’s my favourite time of the year. Being an international student here, this whole phenomenon of holiday sales was new to me but very magnetic. Back home, we didn’t have all the brands or stores, so being here was like having everything I dreamt about. “
I find that the action genre deserves its spot in popularity within the realm of anime.
The formula used to create the stories in this particular genre never seems to get old. The bright-eyed protagonists go on an adventure to achieve a goal. Of course, the story wouldn’t be entertaining without any struggles or complications. What makes the formula fool-proof is how these stories push the audience to cheer on the protagonist as they triumph over obstacles and their rivals, whilst using their strength, wit and the power of friendship, as well as the little twists each author adds to their stories.
As life goes on, we are all going to find ourselves in stressful times. Be it through school, work, or any number of personal issues that are likely to occur, there will always be that moment when we feel like the pressure from our daily obligations is too much to handle. In times like these, remember… sometimes it’s fine just to take a break.
What is a true friend? To me, a friend is a person who is there for you no matter what hard times may come. They don’t judge you, try to manipulate you, or hurt you on any level. The base of any true friendship is made up of honesty, respect, trust and loyalty. Actually, this is the base of any relationship a person gets into.
À certains moments dans notre vie, nous perdons cette ‘étincelle’ et nous nous mettons au neutre. Nous ne voulons plus faire d’efforts. L’objectif peut être très important pour nous mais on ne fait plus rien pour avancer. J’ai pu observer cette situation chez mes proches et moi-même à plusieurs reprises. Nous avons tous une vision de notre « job de rêve » – nous faisons tout ce qu’il faut pour y arriver, mais après quelque temps on finit par lancer la serviette. Même ceux qui occupent notre emploi de rêve finissent par perdre la motivation. Pourquoi faisons-nous cela? Pourquoi est-ce qu’on arrête de faire quelque chose qui est bon pour nous?
There are times when we lose that “spark” in life and sit on one’s hand. We don’t want to work. The thing might be very important to us, but, we just don’t want to move towards it. It has happened to so many people around me and including myself. We all have a dream job. We want it so badly, we fight for it but then, after some time, we just kiss it goodbye. It also happens to people who actually have your dream job. Anyone can lose motivation to keep on going. But, why do we do this? Why do we stop doing something which is actually good for us? Why do we want to have regrets?
