The Struggles of Working at a Tanning Salon
I worked in a tanning salon for about two years and I loved it. I loved the atmosphere, the knowledge of tanning and tanning products I had gained, and of course- tanning for free and those employee discounts on lotions was pretty amazing. But behind the few perks comes a lot of struggle. Working with the general public is always difficult, but you see a whole new side of people when you work behind the counter at a tanning salon.
An Open Letter to My Mom
Mom, I don’t even know where to begin. There will never be enough words to describe how much I appreciate you, how blessed I am to have you, or to explain to you how much of a role model you’ve always been for me.
Shows Everyone Needs to Watch
Almost too often I have those days where I finish a show I was currently watching, just to have no idea of what I should start to watch next. I like to watch a variety of different genres, but usually not the same type back to back. Unfortunately, in my “recommended shows,” I am only referenced to other shows which are eerily similar to the one I just finished. Sadly, I scroll through the selections, just to get overwhelmed by all the choices I have, and get too annoyed reading the pilot synopsis that I scroll back to my “watch again” category and decide from there what show I will rewatch, AGAIN.
Wake Up America
At 21 years old, all I know is being a student. All I know is going school, learning whatever curriculum I need to learn, and going home when my day at school is finished. I am very lucky that I have always made it back home.
From Weakness Comes Strength: Part One
I honestly couldn’t even tell you how long I have wanted to tell my story. The full version, unedited, uncut, wholesome story. I’d be lying if I told you this is going to be easy for me write, and even easier to share. There are parts of my story that not even my own parents and closest friends know of. (If you fall into those categories, don’t take offense to me hiding certain things; I did this to spare feelings and emotions while I also prefer to cope with certain things on my own.) I am finally telling everyone everything to symbolize me going into my adult life with a clean slate: no secrets and no bottled up stories and hidden emotions. I hope me sharing this can help others going through similar situations.
