I found a recipe for Greek Yogurt Lemon Donuts on Tumblr this weekend and just had to make them. I’m not the biggest fan of donuts (understatement) but I do love lemons, so of course I wanted to try them! Continue reading “~ Baking Lemon Donut Holes ~”
I went to see Pacific Rim 2 this weekend. I know, judge me. What 24-year-old in the world cares enough about giant robots battling giant monsters to watch a whole movie about it? I do. Me, me, me! It may come as a surprise, but I kind of have a history with monster flicks. My dad used to have all the Godzilla movies on regular rotation–and I’m talking retro Godzilla, where he’s in black and white and smashing replicas of towns and power lines, and the English is dubbed over the Japanese so their mouths never line up right.
I don’t mean ugly as in physically, but ugly in the way they treat people.

It happened to me just this morning: a lady stepped up and before I could even say hello, ask how she was, or scan her items, she snapped, “I didn’t know [gas station] workers were allowed to be on their phones.” Continue reading “Ugly Customers”

Over the past few days I’ve dealt with more rude customers than usual. There’s 4 standouts in particular I’d like to tell you guys about, and while I know writing it down won’t make people change their ways, my hope is that I can raise some small awareness about the terrible way retail workers are treated on the daily. Step behind a counter and put on a uniform and it’s amazing the things people think are okay to say and do to you. So let’s get right to it, shall we?
Two things since I last wrote… First, I went and saw Black Panther this weekend. What with all the hype surrounding it, and it being the only Marvel movie thus far to star a black superhero, I had to go.
