The Restaurant Revolution: Why I Left Industry and Why I’m Not Going Back

When it comes to restaurants in the Orlando area, I am fully aware of who is and isn’t hiring. The “is” category outweighs the “isn’t” by a whole lot at this point. I’m aware of these places because at least four or five times a day a well-meaning friend will text or message or send

This is Supposed to be Fun, Right?

I have, admittedly, been on the struggle bus when it comes to finding what my own personal “new normal” looks like. You’d think that after a year of adapting to all the fun new buzzwords that I personally can’t wait to never hear again. These include (but are not limited to): Social Distancing, Quarantine, Lockdown,

128 Days Later

If I had a dollar for every time I have told myself I was going to write an update in the last 128 days… I’d probably have like a thousand dollars. I have been yelling at myself a lot but the desire to sit down and try to be fun and witty on the internet

Finding My New Normal

As I mentioned in yesterday’s ramblings- I’m officially out of work due to the COVID. It’s not a cute little furlough like we had back in March, it’s a full-on layoff. For the first time in 20 years I have no job, no plan, and no idea what’s coming next. Strangely- I’m kinda okay with

Lockdown Part 2: The Revenge of the Rona

There is really nothing better than living in a country that doesn’t take a global pandemic seriously. It’s really a step above living in a state that doesn’t take a global pandemic seriously. My favorite part was when we became an epicenter and a global laughing stock. According to the CDC website as of sitting

Halloween Horror Nights 30: Where Do We Go From Here

When I put on my schedule to write a post about Halloween Horror Nights today, I had something completely different in mind for what I was going to talk about. I should know better than to try and plan anything in the year 2020. What a fool I am. Because today we finally got an

I Owe That Raccoon A Lot of Money

If you would have told me at the beginning of 2020 that I would be spending an inordinate amount of time catching fish in order to sell them in an effort to pay back a massive home load to a raccoon—I would have wondered what the hell you were on and if you were willing

A Beginners Guide to Not Being an A-Hole at a Restaurant: Pandemic Edition

Alright people- this is happening. Frankly, it’s been a long time coming. I’ve been working in restaurants for over four years now and, for the most part, I’ve kept my server rage to myself. A lot of times I’ll think about writing something in the moment and then I don’t end up doing it because

Don’t Ask For Much, I’m Trying My Best Here

You’d think that will all the free time that comes from not having a job, I’d be doing a lot more writing. But here we are a full month since I last posted. I don’t really owe anything to anyone here. I don’t have sponsors and my core group of followers is super understanding of
