Swirls of Life

Life is a swirl…

Good News

I came home from a job interview earlier today. It was a success! I officially start tomorrow. The best part is the payment is salary plus whatever tips I make from clients. Given my language, you might be able to guess it’s at a hair salon. I’ll be a shampoo technician instead of a stylist, but I’m okay with that. As long as I’m working in the industry I studied for I’m happy.

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to find a job this fast. It’s only been a month and a half since I stopped working. God is awesome. Anyways, I’ll be making a salary instead of only commission like the previous salons I worked at. Waking up early this morning to visit the salon was worth it.

Do you like your job?

My Dream Vacation

Thank God for friends. I was having writer’s block over what to post about this week and one of my friends recommended vacations. So I decided to write on my dream vacation. There are a few countries I’d like to see someday. So far I’ve only been to Barbados, but I want to visit France and Israel.

France because it’s the city of romance and I’m a hopeless romantic plus the food. The architecture is also great. Isreal because I think it’s the country with the most interesting history. Also, it would be amazing to see the Bible come to life.

What country(s) do you want to visit?

Teaching Experience

A few days ago I went to my friend’s house because I’m teaching her how to crochet. This all started when she had a dream a few months ago that she was making something, so she texted me asking to teach her.

So far so good. She’s a fast learner, but she rarely makes time to practice. Whenever we have our lesson, it’s almost like starting over again 😛 I’m sure everything will begin to stick in her brain eventually.

Have you ever taught a friend a skill? Let me know how it went in the comments.

Movie of the Month

This month’s movie is Lovestruck: The Musical. I remember watching this on the ABC Family (now renamed Freeform) app back when you didn’t have to sign in with a cable account. Those were the good days.

Work Drama Explained

That annoying moment when you lose two jobs in three days. Just my luck right? A few Mondays ago my boss at my secretary job that I’ve had for about a year now told me he couldn’t afford to pay me anymore. This past Tuesday was my last day. To be honest, I didn’t enjoy it much, but the steady money was nice.


Fast forward to Wednesday. I walk up to the hair salon to see the entire place empty plus two police officers were there. My other boss told me he would call me and never did so I called him the following Sunday and he said he would call me on Wednesday because he was “making adjustments”. Obviously that never happened and I havent heard from him since.

A few days later I was talking to one of my close friends about the stipulation which led me to check the salon’s Instagram account to see if there was any news there. I went to the website (which was down a few days before) and found out they had changed locations without notifying me.

Maybe a week later I was at the library and remembered there’s a hair salon across the street and considered applying there. After I got my books I went to the dollar store next to the salon and while I was walking I thought I saw someone familiar through the window. An obese person in a red shirt who kind of looked like my boss, but I ignored it and checked out the dollar store.

When I got home I decided to compare the address of the salon’s new location with the hair salon I was thinking about contacting and guess what? It was the exact same place which means it was my former boss that I saw! It goes without saying that I won’t be contacting that place. To this day my so called boss still hasn’t called me so I’m deleting his number from my phone and looking for a new place to work.

Have you ever had a bad work experience? If so please tell me about it in the comment section.
