1st Prime Shopper at Whole Foods

3:30 am

Perspective- Driving Pop’s Lexus, making minimum wage. (25)

Waking up at 2:30 am, takes work ethic.

1st Amazon grocery shopper in the store.

This is the last order I will take for Amazon.

I’m thankful for my time at Amazon, and it’s time to move on.

“F*ck you, you piece of sh*t.” A co-worker says to their phone.

Do I remember the date I started college? Nah.

I’ll rather get stuff done earlier than later.

[Goapele-Closer]

I don’t want to build computers. I like to use computers.

Working people built Chase Center. [Marvin Gaye-What’s Going On]

There are still stars in the sky. [Kendrick Lamar (with SZA)- All the Stars]

I’ll like to retire by 67. [Drake- Weston Road Flows]

In a year, I made 2k being a prime shopper at Amazon; working 12 hours a month, for a year.

Keep being a prime shopper because it generates income, you can work when you want, you only need to work 12 hours a month, and PTO is always automatically approved.

I would resign because I don’t want to do it anymore.

I would resign because I don’t love it.

I was born into money and came from money. Huh??

From immigrant parents.

Laser focus-mental discipline to lock in: drill, drill, drill

How am I suppose to get the experience if no one gives me my first job?

My first job experience was HipHopforChange, a non-profit, canvassing for donations, so black and brown people can gain access to resources to express themselves through Hip-Hop.

What makes me happy? Being the best person I can be.

Spent time on LinkedIn.

Spent time on Twitter, checking for Warriors content.

Watched Market Mondays

Worked on my dating profiles as well.
