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”

Living with Regret

If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission. Unknown I’m sitting in front of my computer right now, hands shaking. It’s not low blood sugar this time. My fingers hover above my phone, less than an inch away from the green call button. What if this job doesn’t want me? I ask myself.Continue reading “Living with Regret”

Drafting Motivation

Yes, it’s the NFL draft week. So far this is the most excited I’ve been since quarantine started. I happen to be a fan of one of the worst teams in the league and also one of the newest. The Jacksonville Jaguars. This draft will probably just lead us to another losing record but I’mContinue reading “Drafting Motivation”
