environmental sector, except that in this economic situation, these are the first programs to be cut,” she said. “The future is so uncertain. … Everything hurts, in this crisis – it’s hard on the mental health of everyone at home. Because everything in our life has changed now.”
My opinion: I find this article interesting because I studied Brazil for Social Studies in jr. high school.

The dog got his walk every day. There was time to help with French homework and make home-cooked meals: butternut squash soup and baked sweet potatoes with black beans. The Jamie Oliver books came off the shelf.
I worked there for 5 weeks and was laid off due to lack of work. They couldn't give me any shifts. I gave them my cap and 2 shirts, and that they can call me anytime. They also said I can have them as a reference.
Job interview: When I went to the interview, I talked to the two bosses/ owners.
1. The pay was like min. wage with tips. The tips depends on how many hrs you work.
2. Free food. There was a free staff meal at each shift.
3. The co-workers and bosses were nice.
My opinion: I was hired at the interview. They told me that they liked my resume. I had passed it to them in person 3 weeks before and I had passed it to them in another location.
Also, if my boss from my 1st restaurant job asked me to come to work that day and my Fast Food job scheduled me, I would say to the 1st restaurant job that I can't come to work for the 1st restaurant job. However, the 1st restaurant job never called me.
When I work there, I am only 1 of 2 people working there. It was pretty quiet when I worked there.
I also made a friend Tr. He is 20 yrs old. We had some good discussions like:
Job interviews: I have nothing bad to say about working at the Fast Food place.
At least I did 2 job interviews at Clothing Store #3. I had gotten hired at the Fast Food place, but I had already scheduled those other interviews. I decided to attend to them anyway, because I was curious to see if I would get hired. I didn't get hired.
Some of you guys may have cancelled those interviews.
However, I got an email from a café in downtown. I didn't email them back for an interview.
I got a call from an Asian restaurant in downtown. I didn't call them back for an interview.
Call centre: I got an email from this call centre. It was temporary 4 month job. It was far away. I asked if there was another location, and there was only one. I turned them down for an interview.
How old is this woman?:
Oct. 20, 2017 Pooch Café comic: On Oct. 14, 2017, there was this comic.
Panel 1: The dog Poncho and a Bird are watching TV.
Bird: I don't know how much more TV I can watch.
Poncho: Hey, if you're gonna be friends with someone, you have to respect the
other person's interests.
Bird: Worm chip?
Poncho: Get that outta my face.
My opinion: It reminded me of the friend I had accidentally offended when I made a light
and fun joke of one of her interests. I do respect her and her interests.
It also reminded me of my sister. I wrote about this before:
Tracy playing with a panda bear: I have written about this before, but it wasn't on that blog post. It was that time when I was 13 and my sister was 15:
S was reading a magazine and Tracy was playing with a panda bear.
Tracy puts her thumb on the panda's nose like the panda is giving S an angry and dirty look.
A few moments pass as the panda continues to give S a dirty look.
S angrily snatches the panda out of Tracy's hand.
