Boring, and confusing

 

Teachers going on strike tomorrow across Arizona, and it directly effects my job so no work tomorrow and probably not Friday either.

Feels unemployed.

 

The teachers, or rather teachers union, demand more pay immediately instead of waiting until 2020 as previously agreed on so the teachers and union hired lackeys are on strike and marching on the state capitol in Phoenix. I've been off work since Thursday, and seems like it wont get resolved anytime soon. It seems ridiculous since there were only 19 days left of school and now summer break keeps being shortened as school will carry on the amount of days once things are settled. It's hurting a lot of families and money that is spent on daycare, exhaustion of vacation time and sick leave, and wasted vacation plans made months ahead of time.

Getting better

Sun Wukong

What now?

 

Sun Wukong is The Monkey King from Taoist mythology, a silly character of great power who gradually matures with the trials he faces, first written down from oral tradition in early medieval times in a legend called Journey To The West.

 

His story starts with him being spawned from a divine rock (a fragment of a deceased god), but he doesn't realize his partial divine origin. By his innate power, as he grows becomes king over his fellow (mortal) monkeys, gaining his first title, The Monkey King, and through the years, finds that he lives much longer than everyone else around him. He goes to find weapons for his people and a weapon of his power, gaining the Sacred Cudgel of Huangdi (later referred to as the Golden Staff of Sun Wukong) after a minor trial but causing his first disturbance within the Chinese pantheon. One of the planets comes to train him to master his power, giving him the name Sun Wukong, learning how to ride clouds, also receiving the prophesy that that this powerful monkey-man will become an immortal god. Upon being trained, he becomes a servant of the Celestial Emperor (Incarnation of Heaven). Doesn't last for long as he ends up misusing his position (in a childish manner) to make himself immortal and have unlimited energy. He is caught in a cosmic conflict that results in him fighting differing members of the taosit pantheon of gods and defeating them, even calling himself after this the Great Sage Equal to Heaven. Later, single handily wreaking havoc in heaven and reducing it to rubble (he couldn't defeat the Celestial Emperor, but was able hold against his power), but Wukong redeemed himself at the end by defeating the Demon King that duped him. So despite both sides of morality trying to use Wukong as a tool of their own, he remained an independent force to be reckoned with by his own willpower. To teach the childish powerhouse humility and patience, the spirit of The Buddha sealed The Monkey King under a mountain for several centuries while Heaven was rebuilt. after his allotted time, he was awakened and forced to serve a Buddhist monk alongside two other friendly monsters in aim to help the monk in a long journey to retrieve sacred scrolls written by Buddha while he was alive, while Sun Wukong himself will help the monk so that a cursed crown on his head can be removed and hopefully by the end of his long trials in power control and humility, maybe he can achieve official godhood.
