I am not a huge holidays kind of person. I want to get behind it, I really do, but I have worked virtually every birthday or holiday since I was 15. It's all been just another day.

And now, with the shit show that we are in the US, I especially am not sure how to get behind where our country has become. There...

I can respect your right to disagree @jacleric. We agree far more than not and that's how it should be. It's all good brother

I feel you ...

This past Saturday was the tacos and tequila festival in Indianapolis! It was a sold out festival of just over 2000 people. We opened at 6pm for VIPs and 6:30 for regular guests. By 10pm we were sold out of food with over 1200 tacos sold!!! It was an amazing evening and a sweltering one as well

I'm down for the tacos...not so much the tequila. lol

I received a phone call this morning that shook my world quite a bit. My younger sister was pregnant with her second child. She lost the baby on Saturday and didn't find out until Tuesday. I dressed quickly and went to get house and spent the morning with her. We talked about everything. Her new job, my job, her husband, how her daughter was...

I am heartbroken for your family. So sorry to hear.

Thank you for your thought @gadget. It means the world to me

I was driving home during a break in the rain when I spot this guy limping along the street. I had to stop and get a hold of him. He was wearing a purple harness and his limp said that he had already been clipped by a car tonight. He was such a sweet boy. I called emergency and while waiting for then, a car...

Good for you for taking the time to care. There's not enough of that in this world anymore, unfortunately.

But it's no time to relax. I have to much to do and not enough time before work to do it. Clean the apartment, dishes, laundry, menu descriptions, pursue volunteering again... I have hated that my former kitchen snatched me away from volunteering at Riley as that has been such a goal for me for such a long time. I will be at work...

Happy birthday! Hope you get to achieve your goal of volunteering at Riley at some point this year! Even though your day is full I hope you have a really nice time!

Hope you get proper time to celebrate you! Happy trip around the sun!

I walked out of my job this morning. The environment became to toxic for me and my frustration finally took over.

The GM appoached me this morning in a confrontation that I thought would have been civil. Instead it ended in talking down to me, talking snarky, and in general belittling me for procedures set by our chef that are out of my control rather...

You do have an epic beard! And beard envy is a thing lol. @xheartswornx my hair was long in high school, past my shoulders. I have been shaving my head since I was 25. I figured if it was going, it would be by my choice not its
xheartswornx:
Yeah, I think that's pretty normal to go on and shave it by choice. I have a few friends that have done so and I just figured I'd grow my hair long while I have it. I likely will start to lose my hairline due to genetics so I'll deal with that when it happens.

I don't know what to do. I am a chef. Being a chef has been a passion of mine for so long. A kitchen was my first job. I was a salad and dessert chef at 17 for an Italian restaurant. When I left the industry for a few years to work for Amazon, Maplehurst, and Subaru I had dreams of the kitchen. So...

Thank you so much @chef and @tulipe for your input and comments. I tagged you both because I respect your opinions deeply

@user8992 I have great recipes for the food truck idea and am looking deeper into the cost. If I get one, it's a road trip to friends from SG for food and community

The tragedy in Humboldt is still fresh, but young players are leaving sticks out for their brothers who have passed so that they may always have a spare wherever they are and can play. In deepest sympathy and utmost respect for for our cousins up north. #humboltbroncos #humboldtstrong

Empathy is the most important human feature

My heart breaks this morning. I am sitting here at work just wanting to curl into a corner and cry. Yesterday a van drove into a square killing people enjoying some sun and foid in Germany then the driver took their own life. Acts like this are becoming far to common place all over and murder splashes across the front page of the paper on...

This is really sad. I had no idea these events took place. I tell people in my life constantly to be appreciative that you have life, whether or not it may not be the way you want...it is still a blessing to be alive. I constantly am faced with challenging things in my life, but I am always grateful to be alive. Thank you for sharing this post.
