Talking to Deliveroo riders—episode 5

Today night, I met a Deliveroo rider at Mamuśka, a Polish Kitchen and Bar around Elephant and castle after I finished my dinner here. I spoke to him. He really enjoyed the job as a deliveroo rider, but he always could not understand what I asked him. I asked him if he has something worried about when delivering food. He said if I want to make orders I can do that from the app….finally, he really hurried to deliver food at that moment so I just said goodbye to him.

Sadly went back home, I was really disappointed because I got nothing new information today from deliveroo riders. I started searching online and tried to find something useful. Luckily, I found useful links about the review and some personal experience diary from deliveroo riders. Here are two of all links below.

From those links, I

Talking to drone drivers





I found a new class of people in Post-digital culture—drone drivers, which is really popular now. Luckily, I found one of my coursemates who was training for a licence of drone driver. So I asked him about if there are something really important for them or they really care about when driving. This guy told me some anxiety: 1, the drone will go off when were flying too high even it has GPS; 2, some drivers flying them indoor, it may damage itself because that’s really easy to crash on the wall or hit on some hanging things; 3, there are so many rules for drone drivers that really hard to follow them…After I did some second research, I knew more things about drone drivers. Like some rule about the distance to people, you must keep

Talking to Deliveroo riders—episode 4

What a really lucky day today. I met three Deliveroo riders at least within 10 minutes. Unfortunately, they were hurried in delivering and my interview was too directly. So we didn’t have a long conversation. I got two anxieties this time. The guy from the west Affric always delivers food by cycling said, the weather in London is really cold now, so It’s really hard to keep food warm when they arrived. The company of Deliveroo never require them must do it and no punishment if the food becomes cold, but he thought about if he’s a guest, he prefers hot food and he wants his guests happy. So that’s the only one thing that he worried about. One guy worried about delivering food on time. He rides a motorcycle rather than a cycling, and a little bit big. It’s really hard to shuttle in the crowd when sometimes the road’s really narrow and lots of passengers, that will make him late and that’s why he worried about it. One more thing is food may be damaged or spilt because of the unflatness road. Thank you guys and good luck.

Talking to Deliveroo riders—episode 3

Welcome back! In this session I still talking about and figuring out what kind of things that Deliveroo riders really care about. Luckily, after talking to the Deliveroo walker that I mentioned last time, I met a guy with the uniform of Deliveroo and immediately rushed toward him. Here’s the content of our dialogue below. He usually delivers food with a small cycling. Riders could deliver maximum 2 orders once, but there’s no limitation for each order. That means guests could order 10 burgers or 5 bowls of noodle once in an order.  So he worries about the weight of food if that’s too heavy, it’s really difficult to balance the cycling. What’s more, he also worries about spilling soup outside when delivering something liquid like noodles with soup and hot chocolate. I was emotional and actually know what he said about ‘spilling’ which was based on my really really bad experience on the 3rd of Oct. I spilled soup of ITSU noodle on my laptop, the worst was, I’ve no time back up everything before it totally damaged with smoke. I kept nothing from MA course except my dissertation…Finally, I got a death laptop with the strong smell of what the duck ( what  the f***, £2 noodle defeats £1000+ laptop….) for memorizing. After that, I dont buy pot noodle anymore…Hold on, something inspired me, anxiety or something that people worry or care about usually based on some bad experience of them. Like Galaxy Note 7, before the accident of exploding nobody knows and worries about that. Anyway, good luck for him.

Talking to Deliveroo riders—episode 2

Hey riders, welcome back. It’s my second time ordered food through the platform of Deliveroo app. Around 30 mins later, the food’s arrived. Also good! This time, to my surprise, it’s a walker rather than a rider this time and no anxiety again. I’ve to say he was late a little bit than the time I ordered. Okay, you never care about time cause you were late…to my surprise again that there’s no punishment. Arrrrr, forgot it, Olivia knows anything about that, I always late for tutorials, for meetings and for worship or serving. For this time, I talked more with this walker this time and knew more things about Deliveroo. When we make orders, orders are going to come randomly into phones of Deliveroo riders, wow, that’s really cool. That guy’s really enjoy being a Deliveroo walker and nothing needs to worry about. He even never worried about spilt soup or damage food, because if sometimes he needed to deliver liquid food, he will ask restaurant pack them well so that no responsibility of him when package damaged. How simple life he has with happiness ! Unfortunately,  I still find nothing about the anxiety of Deliveroo riders, anyway, chips’ good but burger’s not good especially wasabi, wasting my tears.

WechatIMG2.jpeg social_media mangohab-524x524.png patty-and-bun-london-england-24838-1376599077.jpg

I try to make orders through Deliveroo app. After I made it, I can see the icon of the location of the rider moving on the phone map and roughly period of time of delivering, that was amazing! As you can see, 15 mins left, 10 mins left, 5 mins, 1 minute, wow, there we go, arriving now! Open the door and enjoy your food right now!!

Okay, food is not most important part here but research (tricky face). I spoke to the rider and asked if he has something worries about when delivering food. Unfortunately, he’s no anxiety because he doesn’t need to talk just collects food and then delivers it, that’s why nothing needs to be worried. I actually can’t believe that because everyone should have anxiety. I reflected myself about way of question asking and is it too directly? People always anxious for they could not control their future, but sometimes the anxiety’s too hidden to figure out because people always lack the patience to think about it and always not happy to spend time thinking. One more thing, although I am not sure where he comes from, maybe from Europ, I can see he’s definitely not from The United Kindom because of ancient. So I was thinking about how can I do my primary research, change the question a little bit or explain more about the question, because ‘anxiety’ could be made people confusing. Anyway, burger’s really good, and wings as well huhhhuh.

Meaning of Animal Totems

Animal totems play huge roles in our lives. They aid in self-discovery and capture our imagination, giving us incredible avenues of self-expression and awareness.

Additionally, they assist in understanding our past, and if we are attentive, our animal totems can reveal glimpses of our future.

Since time immemorial, animals have served as harbingers of personality traits we, as humans, all aspire to achieve. This makes animals some of the most powerful symbols in our spiritual toolbox.

Native American animal totems most commonly come to mind when discussing this topic. However, animal signs are found throughout all cultures spanning the globe.

Animals afford us visions of how our lives could be if we lived more simply and lived with purity of thought and emotion. Therefore, incorporating animal totems into our lives affirms our spiritual goals.

By focusing on the attributes of our totems, we internalize these traits and thus begin to externalize the very character we absorb from our totems.

Earth Animal Totems

Every animal resonates to a specific kind of energy. As you would imagine, earth animal totems rock this ‘burg called Earth. Essentially, these are the mammals of our animal kingdom.

Native American Totem Animals & Their Meanings

<<  Previous  1 2  Next  >>


A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol of a tribe, clan, family or individual. Native American tradition provides that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany him or her  through life, acting as guides.


Different animal guides, also called spirit guides and/or power animals, come in and out of our lives depending on the direction that we are headed and the tasks that need to be completed along our journey.


Native beliefs further explain that a totem animal is one that is with you for life, both in the physical and spiritual world. Though people may identify with different animal guides throughout their lifetimes, it is this one totem animal that acts as the main guardian spirit.


With this one animal, a connection is shared, either through interest in the animal, characteristics, dreams, or other interaction.


This Animal Guide offers power and wisdom to the individual when they “communicate” with it, conveying their respect and trust. This does not necessarily mean that he or she has actually touched or spent time with this animal, more that, they are open to learning its lessons.


For some, knowing what is their totem animal is almost an innate process. It’s as if they’ve always known, inexplicably drawn to the animal or having a special feeling for the animal’s energy. For others, they wonder how to tell what their animal totem is.


Here are some questions to ask yourself if you’re wondering what your animal totem is:

  • Have you ever felt drawn to one animal or another without being able to explain why? This could be any type of living creature, including birds and insects.
  • Does a certain kind of animal consistently appear in your life? This doesn’t necessarily have to be a physical appearance, it could be represented in other ways, such as receiving card and letters with the same animal pictured over and over, unexplainable dreams of a particular animal, watching television and seeing the same animal featured time and time again, or, actually having the animal show up.
  • When you go to the zoo, a park, wildlife area, or forest, what are you most interested in seeing?
  • Are there any animals that you find to be extremely frightening or intriguing?
  • Is there a particular animal that you see frequently when you’re out in nature?
  • Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal?
  • Have you ever had a recurring dream about a certain animal, or a dream from childhood that you have never been able to forget?
  • Are you drawn to figurines or paintings of a specific animal?

If you still need more help ask the Universe for a dream or a vision to see if anything comes up. Also ask the animal to show itself to you and pay attention to what you begin to see from all sources — television, books, billboards — it doesn’t have to be the actual animal. Does one animal begin to appear frequently?


One thing to remember is that you cannot choose your totem spirit, rather it chooses or has already chosen you. The Spirit chooses you and they decide to whom they will reveal themselves. Much of the process of identifying your spirit animal is paying attention to both your past and your present. It is a process of developing your inner knowledge and spiritual understanding.


The totem itself is a symbol that represents this animal. This could be any number of items – a crest, a totem pole, an emblem, a small figurine, and engraved or painted stone, or anything else that depicts your animal guide.




Note:  Native American totems did not include all of the animals listed below, as many of these creatures did not exist in North America; or, in some cases, not at all (such as the unicorn.) However; the concept of “totems,” by whatever name they were called, have been known throughout the world since the earliest days of Greek Mythology. Though the unicorn and dragon are generally accepted as centuries old mythical creatures of Europeans, pictures of these fabled animals have been found in Native American tapestries and pictographs.
