I'd like to believe that I am reinventing myself. Growing up by the hour and improving by the minute. I am by no means a professional writer. Just a girl with internet access and a dream.
Dining out is one of the most relaxing and satisfying feelings that everyone experiences at least a few times in their life. Maybe not so satisfying for your wallet depending on where you choose to dine, however still rewarding mentally and physically after a full belly. But for the people taking care of you all day and night it can begin to take a toll if you just can't seem to be a decent human being while enjoying your meal. Whether it's a cashier who is ringing up your order or a server who runs back and forth to cater to your every whim or even the cook who slaves over hot grills and ovens to make you a tasty treat.
Rideshare Etiquette-Part 2
It seems like everyone has gotten into ridesharing these days. Lyft and Uber have made it easy for individuals to make extra money and even make a full income with their services. I have been an avid user of Lyft and Uber since 2014 and I have experienced the good, bad, and ugly of both platforms.
These are the days where rideshare companies are owning the market. Although there are no doubt many rideshare websites and apps around the world right now, two top contenders are the infamous Lyft and Uber apps. Both apps are free to download on your mobile device so long as you use a debit or credit card once you are ready to request a ride. In the early stages of both apps (Uber debuting in 2009 whereas Lyft wasn't founded until 2012), you were able to get a first free ride of up to 20 dollars. I'm not sure if that still stands now, but I do know if someone lets you use their code, then you do get some sort of promotion. Since I am an avid user of both apps, I will happily input my codes at the bottom of this post for anyone who is new to the apps and has not requested a first ride. The code does not expire until you use it the first time, then no more promotions are usable from that code unless a new account from a different phone and phone number is made.
Friends with Benefits
I already know what you're thinking, "Another girl who couldn't handle something she committed to." I honestly wish that were the case. I wish that I was so shitty at handling things because I promise you it would be a lot easier to deal with what I have been feeling lately. Problem is, I handle things so well that I forget to take care of myself in the process. I have been in my fair share of friends with benefits relationships and usually things turn out decently aside from the relationship ending due to mostly irreconcilable differences. Nothing too dramatic, relocation or just circumstances of life really. I say irreconcilable differences because things usually occur that keep the promise of keeping in touch a failure and the friendship goes out of the window.
