My entire work career I had always been in the food industry. If you have ever worked in the food industry you are well aware of the laid back environment. It is entirely different from any other work environment. The personalities are more adaptive, and the rule's aren't so black and white. When you're a server/bartender you become everybody's therapist, friend, confidant, and in general somebody they can rely on. The regular guests begin to know your work schedule better than you do, because they look forward to that third party ear.
Caregiving is often a misconceived job. Many people have little to no idea what it is really all about. By definition, caregiving is the activity or profession of looking after and providing care for a child, an elderly, or a sick or disabled person. Despite being a commonly used term, especially among families, many people still do not seem to understand the nature and process of caregiving. There is a lot of misconceptions surrounding this job or career.

tahCovid-19 hit like a brick shattering a pane-glass window here in my little Utah town; suddenly and destructively. I work at a grocery store where my duties are fairly expansive, but my primary responsibility is overseeing the store's online shopping: I am essentially a personal shopper and delivery driver with the title of manager. My job does see me at other tasks: creating signage for the stores digital billboard, submitting changes for the weekly ad and writing emails for deals and events. Thursdays are one of two days I'm given each week to focus on these other tasks, I have another person overseeing the orders and I focus on office tasks. Thursday March 12th started as any other Thursday.
So in my last posts I wrote about the many options I had for quitting this life of working for someone else. I also wrote about how this life is no longer for me. I have grown up seeing my family work for corporate America so these posts are not knocking corporate America or those who work for it. These posts are just telling the truth.
As I mentioned on previous post, I was fired from my last job during this pandemic because, as an ex-co-worker that still talk to wrote to me, that my last employer thought that I can’t multitask. I was one of two people let go from that company. The person was let go because they were always late.
Lock down has meant very different things to different people. Some have become dedicated couch potatoes, others have lost weight and become super fit. Some have redecorated their house and others have lavished love and attention on their garden. I had very good intentions. Really! I was going to systematically work through each room in the house until it sparkled. I was going to catch up with my gardening. Neither of those good intentions bore fruit which is a shame really. Both house and garden would have welcomed the attention and my garden used to be my pride and joy. Now the kindest way to describe it is to say it is a haven for wildlife.
Oh its #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter and Intersectional Badassery time alright, things are changing. Bigots, their Stans and Karens are screaming their displeasure only to be met with open resistance.
Since I was a little girl I always had this dream of my own place to live. I was raised in a family with 3 siblings and 2 bedrooms, so privacy was a luxury only allowed when my family get out for country trips and I had to stay because my college.
I have been working for different top-tier companies in my industry for around 10 years, in the UK and Continental Europe. As a Chinese person, I know from my experience that fitting into a new environment is hard when you are a foreigner, especially if you are from a country that is not well-known and associated with negative stereotypes. Luckily after some adjustment time my work colleagues and I have built some very precious friendships and shared unforgettable moments.
