Okay, so my format is somewhat different from most of the entries here. It’s me reading and illustrating the story on video. But otherwise I think it meets all the requirements of the site. It’s true. It’s about my fast food job. And the worst day of my life.

Exotic Dancer, aka Lap Dance Specialist

I started out working in a gentlemans club as the beer tub girl. Basically, I sat there, looked pretty, and popped beer caps for customers walking in the front door.

It’s a Hard Knock Life For a School teacher

I have taught elementary school for 25 years now. Perseverance is my middle name! It has not been easy!

Bridal Gown Designer…Creating a Princess for a Day

I design bridal gowns and accessories for weddings. I work with clients of all ages, shapes and sizes. Sometimes creating someone else’s vision of loveliness can be challenging.
