a tentative foot back into the water...



Well, I've been away from ECEU for a little over three months now, and I'm seriously toying with the notion of jumping back in. I think I was able to get enough distance from the site over these past few months to realize that, hassles aside, it was something I did genuinely enjoy doing most of the time, and, while I have no doubts the site can't run forever, I do think I pulled the plug rather hastily on something that had been a labor of love for nearly four years, for misguided reasons and frustrations. I don't regret the time away, it was entirely worth it for many, many reasons, but I think I'm almost ready to be able to come back to it again, with fresh eyes and ears.

Unfortunately, I deleted all the posts when I shut things down back in April, so the site as it was previously won't be back if I come back - but at the same time, perhaps that will give me the chance to start anew?

Anyway, while I grapple with this for a week or so - fully aware that I lost the vast majority of my readers many moons ago (google analytics don't lie!), as declaring your site over and done does often tend to cut down one's readership - I thought I'd let you know, a little over halfway through this year, the five records I've been listening to the most (so far) in 2009:


Hold Time - M. Ward ( video: "One Hundred Million Years", live at SXSW 2009 )
Veckatimest - Grizzly Bear ( mp3: "While You Wait for the Others" )
Upper Air - Bowerbirds ( mp3: "Northern Lights" )
Wilco (the album) - Wilco ( video: "You and I" w/ Feist, live on Letterman)
Vacilando Territory Blues - J. Tillman ( mp3: "James Blues" )


And, since you can't ever really take the Elliott Smith out of ECEU, I'll make a final decision on whether or not to re-open ECEU for business on August 6th (Thursday), which would have been Elliott's 40th (!!) birthday.

I have purchased Usmle Step 1 from http://www.usmleworldwide.com and i am pretty much satisfied from their prices and service. On the top of all, after sale service is unprecedented. So if someone is looking to purchase used books for usmle exam preparation then I would suggest them to check this website.

許多人說「辛苦一陣子,也不要辛苦一輩子」但八大行業相較於其他工作,會有不同的壓力。
首先妳要有EQ(情緒管理)。
因為每天面對各種不同的客人,酒店工作有的是工作壓力來發洩的,有的是來吃公關豆腐的,有的是被女友分手來轉嫁情緒的奧客,當然也會遇到狂發小費的好客人。
可是妳正在工作,即使遇到言語上的委屈妳只能選擇承擔,遇到什麼不堪的言語或者侮辱妳也得忍受,因為你在工作!若沒有情緒控制力的話,妳會非常累。
殘酷的現實是,在酒店工作妳就是商品!消費者不會找一個沒什麼功能的商品來浪費自己的錢。
如果妳什麼都不會,只想當花瓶,那妳也得是一個很好看的花瓶!
如果妳什麼都沒有那就別去了,因為妳賺不到錢。然而酒店收入是其他工作的好幾倍,這之間的得失要入行前先考慮清楚。
去酒店工作是否沒有尊嚴的酒店經紀看法見仁見智。因為每個人的困境都不同,只有自己能幫自己的情況下,到酒店也是靠工作來渡過人生難關。
當然會有他人異樣的眼光,因為社會道德對特種營業工作者的定義很狹隘。
若妳想比平常人賺更多的錢,那酒店是一個管道,而收入的多寡取決於妳的決心和態度。
5.應徵前的條件準備(如外表、酒量)
除了閃酒外(我們其他篇幅會酒店兼職說明),多少訓練基本的酒量。因為不管妳是上正常班還是part time的,客人來找妳多少會喝酒。妳不喝,客人有些感覺會不好,感覺不好妳就賺不到錢。而且妳酒
