10 Things All New Servers Will Experience

As a server, you experience so many things in only a few hour shift. You pick up on things that experienced servers don't because they're so used to it. Most of the time, you're overwhelmed and stressed to the max. Here are a few things all new servers experience during their shifts.

1. Thinking "I've totally got this"

Why am I going through all of this training? All I have to do is write this order down and put it in the system...

2. Thinking "I DON'T HAVE THIS"

What is going on???? When did all of these people get here? Why is this order so complicated?

3. Dropping. Everything.

The smell of French Dressing will stick with me forever. That took forever to clean up.

4. Being yelled at for something that isn't your fault.

I'm sorry the kitchen is slow! I really am! I can't make the food myself!

5. Doing math in your head

Especially if your cash register doesn't have a change button. Thankful for the ones who just say "keep the change".

6. Thinking "am I hard of hearing or are these people just quiet?"

I can't count how many times I ask people to repeat what they said. Speak up!

7. Thinking you're messing everything up

TBH you probably are...

8. Asking so many questions. So many.

How do you enter in a deluxe pizza minus onions plus mushrooms minus tomatoes??

9. Trying to be as nice as possible

It's difficult when someone is yelling at you for their order being late. Or their chocolate milk not coming with their meal.

10. Thinking "will this get any easier?"

Hopefully. It has to, right?

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

1839
Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
