Day 3 of Invisalign

Ok it still hurts. A lot. I even notice it when I’m sleeping. The price I pay for straight teeth I guess. Except no one really told me about the pain. I hope it goes away on Day 4. I have a lisp now too. Guess I’m avoiding any words with S. It’s also really not that invisible when I have some attachments on my front teeth. I’ll update this later if you want to follow my road to straight teeth!

Poor managers

It’s been said that people don’t leave their jobs. They leave their managers. My manager was horrible, which is why I’m leaving my job. I was a host in a restaurant. I am 25 and educated, obviously way overqualified to do a ¬†host job. You’re a joke if you think I can pay my bills on $160 every 2 weeks. My car insurance alone is $111 a month and my doctor bills are around $14-26. The next week, she only scheduled me one day. She didn’t even care that I was quitting. The servers will care though because they know I was doing a good job. If that restaurant gets busy, they won’t be able to handle it and I will take pride in their failure. The servers all hate her too because she has an attitude, is lazy, and does NOT know how to run a restaurant. Many days, she has come into work saying something like “I dare anyone to cross me tonight.” or tells me to stop standing around when her fat sister never does shit. No wonder she’s fat, because she literally just stands there and makes me seat all the tables. Needless to say, I am happy to be out of this horrible establishment and will no longer be patronizing it. No one wants to pay $20 for lasagna anyway. I can cook better than most restaurants. I only tried ravioli and gnocchi bolognese and thought both were sub-par for the price. If you’re reading this, don’t go to the Italian restaurant in MacGregor Village in Cary.

The stigma surrounding STDs

If you thought you couldn’t get one, you were wrong. I was sexually harassed by a coworker in a restaurant and he pressured me to have sex with him. I went to the doctor 2 weeks later and 3 days later, I was informed that I had chlamydia. This status has a way of making people feel dirty and ashamed but only because of the stigma surrounding STDs. Thankfully, this person was fired and that is the only thing that gives me peace of mind. I am 25 and people my age are horrible. ¬†They are not interested in dating, only sex. They have multiple partners, don’t use condoms, and don’t get tested. It’s happened to my friends who were in relationships too. They ended up with STDs from a partner cheating. Luckily, this goes away with antibiotics. But having sex with bad people just lowers your self-esteem, makes you hate men and sex. My coworker was extremely rude to me after I told him and called me a crazy, ugly bitch. He did not take any ownership for his actions or seem interested in treatment at all. That means that other people are going to have to learn the hard way like I did. Everyone deserves healthy relationships and my coworker abused his power with me. I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks at work and had to resign. Working in the restaurant industry is not a good option if you are a woman. I work somewhere else now and haven’t had any issues so far. But the moment you feel uncomfortable at work, you should tell someone about it or quit if you have to. The work environment should be a place where you feel safe.

Why I hate the service industry

I have been working in a restaurant for a week. It’s not even open yet and I already hate it. Little did I know or maybe I did and didn’t want to believe it, but sexual harassment is rampant in the service industry. It’s not even the customers. It’s my coworkers. They’ve been giving me their number and inviting me to do inappropriate things to them. If I didn’t need money so bad, I would quit. I am determined to leave my town and do something better with my life.

Laser hair removal

Basically, laser hair removal is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. So far I’ve had two treatments. First, I did my abdomen. I will be doing a second treatment on that later in April. The hair isn’t really back yet. It costs $90. I go to BodyLase Skin Spa in Cary. The second time I did $300 for one hour because it’s a better deal. That time I did lower arms, legs, toes, and the tops of my hands. I’m very hairy and used to be bullied for it. My mom disapproves of me getting laser hair removal. What doesn’t she disapprove of? I’m not going to lie the laser does hurt. The first time she did my abdomen she went all the way down to the top of where my pubic hair grows and it hurt. I also noticed that my ankles were very sensitive. The rest of the body that I did mostly just feels like air blowing on you. When you go to sensitive areas though, it feels like burning or stinging or a small zap. I am happy with the results so far and know I am saving money from shaving and waxing.
