Good Afternoon from Philadelphia!
A LOT has happened since the last time I posted an update and it was IMPORTANT ENOUGH that I concentrated STRICTLY ON THAT! So that I could finally have the peace of mind to be able to CONCENTRATE ON HERE.
I've been absent because I have finally secured a DAYTIME JOB that is appropriate for my work experience when working for or with, others. As some of you may know I was originally living strictly off of my website and because most of my work prior to creating Williams Works has been underneath others and rarely if ever for myself AND FOR PROFIT!?
Then transitioning my scattered fanbase and funneling them HERE, has been difficult to say the least. Since I was not front and center in the first place. So ultimately I had to take on a daytime job and that was hard as hell. Because I hadn't had to deal with "an employer" for over a decade. So of course there were questions and wrong assumptions and stereotypes and I provided proof and jumped through hoops and all of that bullshit! Because you're not supposed to be Black and a Blackman on top of that and NOT BE A WAGE-SLAVE FOR SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE!
And since my original areas of work experience were White collar in nature, they come with background checks and when they would find out "Oh shit!? I guess...!? Heh-heh, guess you were telling the truth, heh. Sorry about that."
Go fuck yourself.
No right-minded Blackman wants to work for anybody who won't accept the fact that every Black Person isn't a wage-slave for someone else and now I have to constantly PROVE that I was self-sufficient before I came in to fill out an app for your shitty-ass job. And the attitude I just typed is APPROPRIATE for jumping through hoops and providing proof and still being doubted only to have a fake apology given, because the guy knows he went too far and I'd already given him all the records NEEDED. To say I either have the job or don't. So for me?
I won't work someplace where following the standard hiring policies and procedures isn't enough to either move on to the next phase of employment or simply say "No. We're not interested." It became a bit of a sick joke where it was like "Wow!? A Black Person who didn't have to slave underneath a White Employer, shit!? Do the other Blacks know about this!? HOW DID YOU DO IT!? YOU MUST HAVE BEEN IN PRISON! TELL THE TRUTH, TELLLLLLLLLLLLL THE TRUTH! Oh...!? Oh shit, sorry."
So after awhile I ended up stuck at a 9-to-5 job where quite frankly everyone knew I didn't belong there at all! And that was the Wendy's where I was stuck between a rock-n-a-hard place! Employers that would pay me didn't honestly believe I'd been self-sufficient and then after being assholes about it they then ended up eating crow and "apologizing". However anybody with some foresight knows you DO NOT want to stay someplace where you've already been shown that they DISTRUST YOU EVEN AFTER YOU'VE PROVIDED PROOF that you were not "locked up" for the last ten years and TRULY WERE SELF-SUFFICIENT AND DID NOT NEED "WHITE EMPLOYMENT".
I'm not dumb enough to believe I should overlook an employer who is more interested in how a Blackman was able to NOT BE EMPLOYED by White People. Instead of it being about am I QUALIFIED FOR THE FUCKIN. JOB. ASSHOLE!
Worse was the fact that employers who DID want to hire me!? Too far away and I no longer have a car. THOSE!? Missing out on THOSE OPPORTUNITIES, hurt! Because they were BIG MONEY! So!? I ended up at the Wendy's where you saw that eventually I had to create a Go Fund Me page to try to save my apartment. Because Wendy's? >_< Ugh! I'll never do that shit again. EVER.
So over the last ten days I've been in hot pursuit of some REAL DAYTIME EMPLOYMENT and I finally landed one of the jobs and THAT is why I have not posted anything over the course of that time. All of my attention has been all about GETTING AWAY FROM THAT WENDY'S! And now that I am!? Now I can get back to building up Williams Works!

Is where I will give generalized updates!
