My BiSC-tory (Like History, Only Better)

This is likely the first of a few posts about the weekend. I have so many things to say, but I’m the actual busiest ever right now – I have three Annual General Meetings for my Councils in the next 2 weeks at work, and at school I have an exam and 3 papers due this week alone.

That being said, I hope I can recap Bloggers in Sin City (#BiSC) in all its gloriousness. I hope I can properly explain that this year was the actual best year I’ve been to #BiSC and that I felt love, so much love, the entire weekend.

But first, some back story: my BiSC-tory! Continue reading →

Alice = Impractical

So it’s been a long few weeks in Average-Land. Working two jobs isn’t the most fun thing ever, especially when one of them practically requires you to be drunk. Hence the dancing and stairwell kissing – for anyone who was wondering, I did several shots with my boss that night as well. The Piano-bar is like Coyote Ugly but without all the crowds and dancing and fire breathing.

Actually, there is a fire-breather employed with us, but he doesn’t start until next week so ya.

Doesn’t count.

It would be fun and awesome except for the fact that after working until 4 am I have to wake up and head to my other job in the morning. Oh and the fact that I’m not eighteen anymore so my body is all “what the shit are you doing to me?” and my wallet is all “hey remember those bills you still haven’t paid?”. See, I’m too busy working at making money so I don’t have time to get to the bank to deposit that money so I can pay those bills.

It’s a Catch-22

Speaking of wallets, have you ever lost something and completely freaked out only to realize that you actually had it the whole time? No? Me neither…

Ya, except yesterday when I got done work and went to put my tips in my wallet only to realize my wallet was not there. I had checked my wallet that morning to see how much money I had left over from the night before ($100 – pretty good) so I knew I hadn’t left it somewhere random.

I proceeded to tear apart the staff room, cry my eyes out, ask “who would do something like this a WEEK before Christmas??” and say things like: “I just don’t understand! I get along with everyone here, who would do this to me?”

After my manager bought me a glass of wine and some lunch, I headed home only to see my wallet sitting on my bed. Right where I left it after I checked my balance.


Why Blog?

I was at The Restaurant today and realized I hadn’t yet posted for the day which would equal a giant FAIL in the daily posting challenge.

Firstly thanks to everyone who commented yesterday. It actually makes me feel a hundred times better about everything. I can’t believe I only recently discovered blogging, it’s such a great outlet and it really is a way to get everything you’re feeling out, have people non-judgmentally comment on it and relate to what you’re saying. Thank you, I love you all!

I was thinking today about the reasons I started blogging. I’ve always liked writing but keeping a journal isn’t really satisfactory. Don’t get me wrong, I still have one, but it’s more for the small things I think about, those times when you’re having a quasi-emotional breakdown and need to just write and write even if later on it makes no sense.

I discovered how big blogs are when I was idly searching the internet for something to do with being an assistant (which I no longer am) and stumbled across this post. Before that I didn’t really even realize that it was a whole huge community or that people read and commented like they do.

Obviously now I see that it’s so much bigger then that, but that day in my office I literally sat and read from beginning to end. After clinking on links like crazy I realized that it was something I really wanted to try, and now I’m so glad I have!

I always wonder how everyone else got started…
