Forgetting for an instant.

Cancer patients agreed to be given a makeover. What they didn’t know was what kind of makeover. They were surprised and had their picture captured the moment they could see their new funny look. For a moment they got to forget about their cancer and have a good laugh from being surprised.

Watch the video! It’s very heartfelt.

Acing the interview

These days, a degree doesn’t seem to be worth much until you land a job. And that means job interviews. Plenty of job interviews. This is going to be me soon and I am hoping I get it right. There are lots of tips online and from people but personally I think it’s all about just getting out there and trying.

But it doesn’t hurt to learn the mistakes that can be made.

I found some helpful diagrams that point out the mistakes and offer hints on getting the job.

Diagram for tipping

I worked as a server for 6 years and was so surprised by the amount of people who don’t understand tipping. All the time I’d overhear “Is that enough?”. I am not sure honestly how many don’t understand the 15% rule but it is there for a reason. What some of the bad tippers may not know is that I am taxed as if I receive those tips. If I sell… let’s say $1000 in sales, (which would be a great night, but it is an easy number so I’m using it) I’d make $150 in tips HOPEFULLY… But I am not taxed straight from my pocket but my paycheck. So technically, if you don’t tip your server, they are paying a small amount to serve you. This applies to all jobs that have tips.

I do wish it was like in other places, but we use tips in America, so that’s just how it is.
