Daily Ramblings 07112014

Technology has changed so much in the past decade, and I was determined to not fall into it. I am constantly challenging myself to learn to adjust with the new:  Everything from MacBooks, Iphones, all sorts of Social Media, and all parts of the intraweb. I recently read an article posted by the Business Insider about Taylor Swift in the The Wall Street Journal (Yeah! TAYLOR SWIFT.) that made me feel more confident about giving this online world a chance. Everyone can take something different from this article, because my findings has nothing to do with the music/entertainment industry. It made me feel better about my recent career in blogging, designing, public relations work, and other things associated with social media. I shouldn’t feel ashamed that I followed the modern age because I’ll always stay true to myself by holding onto my ballpoint pen and notepad when an idea comes to mind (instead of drafting it out on Photoshop or pulling out Notes on my phone). Time has changed, so I should accept it. Why not embrace it, use it magnify my creativity, and reach out to more people. And yes, I wrote the ideas to this blurb down before I typed it up haha!

The bipolar weather of Texas is nothing new; I was soaking in the sun all day yesterday and now I’m literally soaking in water. Excuse my feminine philosophy:

When it rains, wear platforms.

Sorry in advance if this post offends anyone. Anyways, I feel so lucky to have my hands on this MTTM tee 🙂 I love the brand because it’s the perfect fit for women with empowerment and can hold her own like a man. Lovin’ the Mob since ’04, you ladies are a big inspiration to me.

Here is what I wore:

Rants of a Bartender. NYE2014 Edition

So this big guy comes to my bar last night and repeatedly accused me of having his card. He stood there blocking the crowd and stared at me, “You have my card, you have my card!” while I was tending to other patrons. I repeatedly said “I don’t have it. Please check your pocket. Your wallet. Maybe you started a tab at another bar.” It felt like an ongoing western movie gun fight but with words.

He figured repeating himself over and over would magically make his card appear. I looked at him dead in the eyes for a split second, all while pouring lines of shots. “I don’t have your card. I am very careful and have a system that I use. Please check another bar. Trust me!” It was to the point that a promoter noticed my legendary awkward eyebrows (oh, you know what I’m talking about.) from afar and offered to buy him a round so that he would chill out. You would think that now he would walk to the other bars to check, but no. Like most moronic men, he was stubborn and thought he could scare little ole me. It’s a NYE party, I am not going to leave my amazing bar guest (who all had a good laugh at this situation) to go on my knees and look for it. I’m sorry, I am not one of those sloppy drunk bartenders; I always have my shit together and do my best to make money for the team and most importantly I always try to ensure that everyone has a smile on their face and is having a good time (especially it being NYE). The promoter (thanks Pax) took it in his own hands to offer to go with the gentleman to the other bar.

Low and behold! He came back, card in hand, and looked at me. A little embarrassed, but it happens all the time so I wasn’t upset and just smiled and said, “See?” In my little world of rainbows and unicorns, I expected somewhat of an apology. Oh no, he just proceeded to order a round for his friends. Cool, whatever, not everyone is as considerate. So I made the drinks. He paid the $38 and left $1 tip. Hey, $1 is a $1 right? Wrong. I have too much self respect for myself to accept anything from an arrogant human being. I grabbed the dollar and handed it back to him and said, “I refuse to accept anything from any impertinent coward. Happy New Years and use it towards a cab. *smiles real big* and screamed NEXT!!” Asshole. I could have stooped down to his level of stupidity and spray Diet Coke in his face¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But I handled it like a woman should.

A big, I mean BIG, fucking (sorry) cheers to all my industry friends for working hard this NYE 💗 Just remember that there are a lot of people who appreciate you all dearly.

Happy New Years to my family and friends 💗 thanks for a great start to 2014 😉 Now to make it through work this morning 😔😂

Have a nice day!

Breast Cancer Awareness

I woke up early this morning to put together some fun gifts for the breast cancer event at LF today.

Happy Sunday friends. It’s my last day in Orlando for the AFR Yellow Ribbon event. I had an amazing experience learning about deployment; how to cope, how to deal, who can help, benefits, where to find support etc. Even though I am not being the one deployed, it’s tough on loved ones back at home who have to take on the role of the person leaving. We are left with our significant others’ responsibilities and it’s a hard job to take on. I’ll save the rest of my thoughts for a ramblings/personal post 🙂

Here is what I wore today (I took my sweater off because it was pretty sunny out) : I love the little details on this white dress I got from LF. Yes, it’s the first of Fall and I wore white 🙂

It’s a hot sunny day, so I decided to be a little daring and put on a crop top. I don’t usually feel comfortable baring so much skin but I had a little boost of confidence after being inspired by “30 Days of Awesome”. I stumbled across a hashtag from a beautiful friend (Thanks Meredith!) and felt so inspired to be even more positive this summer. Check out the site, www.30daysofawesome.com 🙂 “…the original goal of awesome was to do something new, adventure out of your comfort zone, and discover the awesome things around you.” Challenge yourself to do something awesome, I did! I can’t wait to hear about your adventures.

My outfit of the day: belly baring crop top, my favorite vegan leather shorts, and adventurously high booties.
