I Love Waitressing

Being able to be my bubbly and outgoing self, while offering some entertainment and good service is fun to me.

I Love Waitressing

The restaurant business; so many people whine and complain about the hours, the people, and everything in-between. Many who have worked in it vow to never return, and those who believe the horror stories vow to never try it.

But I love waitressing.

Any part-time job can bring in income, but I met so many people and friends waiting tables. I love meeting new people, and waitressing is the perfect opportunity to meet a whole ton of people at once; you really never know who's going to walk through that door. When you are a waitress you are able to talk and enhance someone else's experience, and I loved doing that. I received so many phone numbers and Facebook invitations, from everyone to girls I ended up hanging out with to a pastor and his wife inviting me to mass. Being able to be my bubbly and outgoing self, while offering some entertainment and good service is fun to me.

In connection to this, the tips are also stellar. I loved being able to push myself, knowing I could make more money the better and more I cared. People do shock you, and more in the kind and goodhearted way than the shitty one. I received so many compliments reflected in tips, and this is a really cool feeling. It's making money, really good money, by being yourself and carrying a few trays.

Although the atmosphere can be wild, it's worth it. The staff you work with often become your friends, because people who love to serve have servant hearts. And on a Friday night would you rather spend your shift in a library or surrounded by music, beer, and potentially a new table of friends? I know what I choose.

So next time you might think your waitress' smile and service is only for your tips, yeah it may be part of it, but trust me anyone who's a waitress wants to be, so you're in good hands.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
