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”

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”

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”

An Introduction

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. -Aristotle The idea for this blog came about a couple months ago. I saw an Instagram post by a celebrity that said her new book was “for everyone”. but the more I thought about it, the more I wondered how you can make a book for everyone.Continue reading “An Introduction”
