There has been nothing easy about the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. We are all struggling and what I'm about to tell you, I am sure many of you have experienced as well. In March, I had been furloughed from my job as a waitress. I have had to apply for unemployment. I am living with my parents (though I now jokingly say they live with me and just happen to pay for everything). I am single with little social life, and even less now as the majority of my friends live in other states. I have done the best I can to remain in contact with them thanks to social media and online game nights, but they do not compare to the real thing of being with them in person.
Women. We are so powerful that many wish to suppress us. We are told many things growing up. "Don't sleep around. You do and you'll be a slut."
Town Criers. Word of Mouth. Newspapers. Magazines. Radio. Television. The Internet. Social Media. These are all forms of communication. Some are older than others, yet they are all effective in doing one thing; sharing news. This is a great thing for with each advancement, with each chapter of evolution in media, the world has become a smaller place. It has allowed everyone to become closer and share all that is important to us and all that we love.
In. Out. In Out. That is how we breath. One breath in with oxygen, and one breath out with carbon dioxide. To some this sounds like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo right? Well it shouldn't! Every living thing on this planet needs oxygen to breath and live. Well, almost every living thing. The ones that don't need oxygen are the plants. What they need more than anything else is carbon dioxide.
There is nothing more enlightening and more life-changing than a song that moves you. A song that makes you feel something so unique and inspiring that you can't help but listen to it all the time. That song for me is 'A Twist in My Story' by Secondhand Serenade. It sounds so corny to think that or even the fact that I heard this song by accident on Pandora one day just a few years ago and yet it spoke to me in ways I cannot begin to describe.
I have been working at Red Robin now for almost six months and I have learned more about human behavior and patience in that time than I have ever expected. I have finally reached my breaking point about being a server to the point where I have to journal about it for the world to see. There are things that your servers will never tell you. There are things we do because we have no choice. This is just the short things I know from experiences or what my fellow servers have told me.
The Frozen Bandwagon. It is one that could not be avoided. I tried for as long as I could but upon seeing the movie the first time just a few short years ago, I was hooked. Not because it was Disney, not that I do not love Disney films, no it is because of the message of the movie. Frozen showed us all that love, true love isn't just romantic, but can be from family as well.
As a die hard Star Wars fan I will always find new ways to learn more about the universe George Lucas created, including cosplaying as Princess Leia herself. It is one of my favorite things to do, and in order to add more to my portrayal of this great heroine, I read the book Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray.
