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”

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: 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”

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”

Good Decisions for the Soul

Not quite chicken soup, is it? Yesterday I got a suggestion for an article about Billie Eilish and how she “can’t win” against her critics. It was about how she posted some pictures from her vacation in Hawaii and some featured her in a bikini (I mean, it’s Hawaii, come on.). People commented some prettyContinue reading “Good Decisions for the Soul”
