So I’ve been working at this tiny restaurant for about three months and I’m so over this place already. They are understaffed, and they schedule way too many people at night so everyone is working 10-15 days in a row with no day off, all the hosts are 16 yrs old so they can’t work more than four hours or past 10:00pm, which means if I’m hosting I have to stay and close by myself, and I just found out that instead of paying overtime, the owner takes the tip out from lunch and pays people in cash under the table so he doesn’t have to report it.
I end up staying awake late by myself more often than not, because I need some time and peace and quiet to talk to my friends or read a book or watch a show and not have to think about what any other people want or need. But staying up until 1am and getting up at 6am for the day when you don’t finish work until 7pm and get home closer to 9pm is a bad move, future self. Every one of my molecules are screaming for sleep.
You can say I spend majority of my year with Dan & Phil. I am so glad that the phandom welcomed me with open arms. I made a lot of new friends, did fun projects and achieved many goals that I’ve set for myself; like having an entire art summary filled with colours+digital and completing inktober. To me, it was been a very successful year. I may or may not still be in the phandom but where ever my art takes me, I hope to create new memories in 2017 like this year.
