Generations of Leadership

I was never the type of kid who had their life planned out. I never knew what job I wanted, what college I wanted to attend, I didn’t even know what my favorite color was until I got older. I was the kid that, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up,Continue reading “Generations of Leadership”

Missing Family for Christmas

Christmas movies are like the number one tradition in my family. It’s right next to lights, cookies, and Christmas dinner. My family has a ton of traditions ranging from icing sugar cookies, watching every Christmas movie we can get our hands on (except Diehard which is NOT a Christmas movie), and decorating our tree. OurContinue reading “Missing Family for Christmas”

Lonely Holidays

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, we’re probably all feeling the stress – the normal holiday stress mashed with the 2020 stress. Is it safe to travel? Should we even be considering inviting people over? For some of us it’s hard to decipher because we haven’t experienced the effects of covid. I believe that’sContinue reading “Lonely Holidays”

The Other Side

It’s officially Christmas season. And no I’m not skipping Thanksgiving. That’s included. What I am doing is mashing the two together to promote the end of 2020. I’m considering bringing out the New Year decorations too. Let’s embrace the last few months of this god-awful year with kindness and grace and a lot of copingContinue reading “The Other Side”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Angry Feelings

I got surgery to fix one of my feet last week. I’ve had the condition Plantar Fasciitis for about 3 or 4 years now and over those years I’ve gotten a bad growth of bunions on both my feet (yes I’m only 19). So I had surgery to repair my left foot. The friends thatContinue reading “Angry Feelings”
