    The World of Hairdressing in a COVID Existence

    The World of Hairdressing in a COVID Existence

    No one on the frontlines of the hair industry really wants to talk about a pandemic. I don't mean influencers like Brad Mondo who have the luxury of being able to stay at home and review TikTok hair tutorials for income. I mean your regular shmegular hair dressers at Fantastic Sam's who have to service 10 clients a day to make a livable wage.

    Being an Essential Worker

    Being an Essential Worker

    One can stay with confidence that no one saw this coming, but we should've been prepared for it. On another note, how does one prepare themselves for a pandemic? Four months have passed and so much has changed in the world around us. For those of us that were considered essential workers, our work life was turned upside down. I work at a bakery and when the stay-at-home order was put into place, business slowed down dramatically. It was hard to accept that many employees were going to see a cut in their hours. This was before any talk of a stimulus check and hazard pay. It was the most anxious feeling I had personally felt in a long time. Having already dealt with anxiety on a day to day basis, I knew the only thing I could do was continuously acknowledge my emotions and let them pass through me. I am in control of my emotions and how I react to the situation. I can protect myself and my loved ones as long as I wear my mask and gloves. Then I found out that my co-worker tested positive for COVID-19. I had become so used to my new sense of normal at work, just for this to happen.

    Cruise Ship Diaries Part 13

    Cruise Ship Diaries Part 13

    Crew turnover in the cruise industry is massive and as much as head office would like to have the same team in place for a whole season, rotations made that nigh on impossible. Halfway through my first contract I was about to work with my third different photo manager in a matter of months, I was also about to get my third roomate of the contract as Morne was about to be transhipped.

    A writer becomes trapped inside their own book.

    A writer becomes trapped inside their own book.

    It is 11:45pm, and I am nowhere near done with my book. My deadline is next month, and I still have a quarter of the book to write. I got to this point because I have been procrastinating most of the time. I go into writing a book head strong and then lose motivation the further I go into it. And once the motivation is lost; I fall behind so quickly. I have asked for many extensions, but the editor finally had enough of my excuses and if I don’t complete it in time, I will lose my book deal.

    Bounty Hunter

    Bounty Hunter

    I became interested in Bounty Hunting when I came across the T.V. Series "Dog The Bounty Hunter" featuring the Chapman family on A&E. At first glance of the show I honestly thought Bounty Hunting was a career I wanted to go into. However, the more episodes I watched the less interested I became in wanting to actually be a Bounty Hunter as the TV show depicted real life Bounty Hunting, the challenges the Chapman Family came across and a few runners they came across who could have possibly been armed. Talk about a mind screw, I needed therapy just watching the Chapman Family go after most of the people who had skipped bond.

    Why is Renting a Chauffeur Service a Good Idea?

    Why is Renting a Chauffeur Service a Good Idea?

    When you hear the word chauffeur, the first thing you think of is someone driving a car. But that can’t be right. Isn’t that a driver? Maybe a cab driver?
