Beware of EA

EA made thousands of gamers irate due to its comment on reddit.com stating “The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes.”

One user complained that after paying $80 for its game, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Vader is locked and the only way to unlock Vader is to either pay from its microtransaction or play hundreds of hours. Due to overwhelming amount of gamers demanding refund, EA removed the refund button on their webpage and you have to call them and wait to get a refund.

In response to gamer’s backlash, EA released a statement. However, this made gamers even more irate due to its change. EA cancelled its microtransaction for now and will be bringing microtransaction at a later date.

Good job, EA. See what you did. We’re not proud of you.

Where’s your Friend?

What happened to your so-called friends? The one that you helped moved, the one that you taught how to drive, the one that you helped when they needed it?

Were you used by them? Did they just vanish after they felt satisfied with the help you gave. ¬†After they befriended you, they used some of your resources to their advantage. You think you’re being helpful to them, but in reality, you’re being used by them.

Do you wonder how they are doing in life? Are they still partying every weekends? Did they find a better job? Or maybe continue their education?

Don’t be sad that they’re not going out with you or partying with you. Be glad that they’re not anymore. Why? Because they’re the friends that you don’t want to associate with.

Have a friend that can gain from both. Have a mature friend that is focused on life.

You know what sucks? They will suddenly appear and be your friend again if they need your help, once again.

Ask yourself, are they really your friends?

Psychiatric Technician

Psychiatric Technician, what is it?

What do they do? Who do they take care of? Under what board do they follow? Where do they work?

According to psychtechs.org,¬†Psychiatric Technicians are mental health employees who provide hands-on care to people with varying degrees of mental illnesses and/or developmental disabilities. They perform a vital, front-line function in all healthcare settings as they observe, treat and interact with patients — often more than any other staff.

Psych Techs are under the BVNPT, which falls under the Vocational Nursing or LVN.

In other words, LVNs are 75% nursing, 25% psych and Psych Techs are 75% psych, 25% nursing.

Psych Techs can work in a state hospital, jail/prison settings, group home/facility, psychiatric hospital.

If you want to help individuals who has mental illness, such as: depression, schizophrenia, bipolar or with developmental disability, such as: autism, then Psych Tech is for you. You will enjoy this field working with these individuals.

In California, there are several colleges that offer Psychiatric Technician class. Check your local community college for classes.

Weekly Videographs

I have this idea of creating a short video about what I did for the week.

With this, I’m able to practice shooting videos, edit and posting them online.

What I have in mind is to have a morning shot, what I’m doing, and a night shot. How easy is that? Well, not so easy due to time constraints. Will I have time to upload them in my surface pro, edit them and upload? Would I be encouraged to keep posting weekly? The only way to find out is to actually do them.

What I will be using is my Note 8 phone. I will have to just sacrifice and deal with it. It’ll be a great practice too.
