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.

I’m Sorry…

I got distracted with work drama, my business, etc. and COMPLETELY forgot about my blog! Even having WordPress up as a browser tab everyday didn’t remind me because my brain is trained to ignore it. I’m SO sorry guys. This will never happen again. In other news my birthday was August 22. I played mini-golf the Sunday before with some of my friends and we had a fun time. Sunday also happened to be my friend’s birthday so we go to do a joint birthday celebration for the first time which was cool. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures so enjoy this stock photo.

P.S. There will be no featured movie this month. Stay tuned for more posts soon.

My Third Job


Sorry it took me so long to post about this. Work has me busy. The good news is I finally got a decent job in my industry! I still work as an administrative assistant part time, but now I also work as a hairstylist at a barber shop/hair salon. It’s a lot more fun and interesting plus I’ve already made some money. The only downside is that it’s commission only which is why I’m still working as a secretary so I have a steady income.

What’s your dream job?

Concert Awesomeness

So much has happened since the last time I wrote about my personal life. I got a new job! But that’s a post for another day. Today I want to talk about how I went to a real concert for the first time this past weekend with one of my good friends. It was so lit! 🔥

My legs were sore the day after from jumping up and down so much, but it was worth it (that means a lot coming from me I HATE being in pain). There’s just something about listening to music you love with the people you love. It’s an amazing experience. We were in the balcony since it had a better view. Down below, there were too many people in the way because it was standing room only. Here’s to future concerts!

If you’ve been to one before – what was it like?


Movie of the Month

Movie of the Month

This month’s movie is City of Ember. I remember watching it back when I was a kid at summer camp. That’s how I discovered it was based on a series of books. I definitely recommend them because it’s one of my top favorite series’.

If you watched it, let me know what you think in the comments.
