Unreliable Instincts

So we have a new employee at my job. The good news is that I’m no longer the newest employee. The bad news is everyone is now more expendable. But let’s talk about this new employee for a second. She’s a mess. Like a big ol’ mess. Everything she does is sloppy except her haircuts.Continue reading “Unreliable Instincts”

For the Love of Everything Except Politics

With the presidential debate happening tonight I feel like I should say something before this all starts. If you’re reading this and you’re not from America, I should give fair warning that we are the Florida of the world. We set ourselves on fire and shoot ourselves in the foot and then say that we’reContinue reading “For the Love of Everything Except Politics”

On the topic of work

I gotta start by addressing this hiatus I’ve taken from writing. It wasn’t really my choice but it was influenced by my lack of enthusiasm. I’ve been trying to find the time and the energy but when I have one I never have the other. So this is me forcing myself to write, honestly. IContinue reading “On the topic of work”

Living in a Stressful Time

I’d sincerely like to apologize for my lack of posting and my lack of motivation to write. Life’s been kinda crazy for the past few weeks. Chadwick Boseman dying of cancer, the shooting of Jacob Blake, the civil unrest, the political divide, covid, old people on facebook trying to tell me to not wear aContinue reading “Living in a Stressful Time”

My Summer Reading List

This summer doesn’t even feel like summer. It feels like March. Or like some part of the Matrix. But I’ve honestly had so much time to read since the stay-at-home order happened that I’ve decided to share the books I’ve been able to finish so far. Most of these are books on my family bookcaseContinue reading “My Summer Reading List”

When It Doesn’t Rain, It Doesn’t Pour

My life has been so hectic over the past month that I can barely find time to write anymore. I know I should, I know I can’t bottle things up, but writing takes time and I didn’t think about that when I started this blog. I’ll write a sentence, it’ll sound wacky, and then I’llContinue reading “When It Doesn’t Rain, It Doesn’t Pour”

The Takeaway: Hamilton

Safe to say I’d be doing the world a great injustice if I didn’t share my opinions and extensive knowledge about our most mysterious Founding Father. The dude was a legend first of all. Second of all, he is part of the inspiration behind my desire to learn and educate myself. Hamilton’s work ethic wasContinue reading “The Takeaway: Hamilton”

The Takeaway: The Help

Okay so I’ve decided to launch this new segment on my blog called The Takeaway and it’s basically going to be reviews of movies and what we can get out of them. I’ve been thinking about what to do them on from quite a while and it’s always going to be movies and tv showsContinue reading “The Takeaway: The Help”

Switching it up

I just did a 180 from my last post. I went from being rejected for not having enough experience to being hired at a job I’ve wanted since I first started beauty school. I’m now working 6 days a week, full time, 40% commission and above-minimum wage salary at Floyd’s 99 Barbershop. This is possiblyContinue reading “Switching it up”

The Worst Catch 22 Ever

I swear to everything holy, I am about to lose my mind. I’m young, I’m inexperienced, I get it. But this is getting ridiculous. I’m not sure if it’s Colorado barbers or simply the attitude towards new barbers in general. Cursed to eternally start off at some crap-show of spotty haircuts and bright yellow bleachContinue reading “The Worst Catch 22 Ever”
