One cold January evening, I was pounding the pavement looking for a gig, before the acting picked up, I always cocktail waitressed and bartended so I was looking for something quick. I was walking down 39th Street in New York City when I turned to my left and saw these beautiful tall double doors, with no label on them. I was thinking “what is this place?”
There was a guy standing outside. So, I walked up to him assuming he was the manager, I asked him what this building was. He said oh this is a bar/nightclub called EVR, it’s not completely open yet. I said “Oh. Well, I am looking for work, and here is my resume.” He looked at my resume and said come on in. I opened these heavy wooden doors, entered, sat at the bar, and filled out an application. After an interview with one of the owners I got hired on the spot.

I've intended to contribute to the #steemitcampfire for a few weeks now. Life happens.
But @barrydutton doesn't forget to remind me! He is ruthless, lol. Actually, he's a really good person in my book. Life had caught up with me Steeming story posts, taking care of the children, and housework. I had not commented on his channel for a while and he took the time to come over to my channel to make sure I was doing ok. That was truly kind of him.
For the #steemitcampfire I wanted to tell a few comical stories from my pre-deployment and actual deployment to Iraq. I hope you enjoy.
FYI: The second video is a video I said I would try to find and I was able to find it(I can't believe it!). It does relate to one of the stories in the first video. It does contain a butt. Be forewarned.
여름 저녁이 너무 좋습니다. 맨하탄도 평소엔 공기가 좋지는 않지만 여름 저녁만큼은 분위기 탓인지 신선한 느낌이네요. 특별히 2주 뒤면 이 도시에서 여름 저녁 석양을 바라보는 날이 있는데요. 맨하탄헨지 를 소개하려 합니다.
맨하탄헨지 / Manhattanhenge
일 년에 두번 있는 맨하탄헨지는, 석양이 맨하탄의 격자구조의 거리와 나란히 놓이는 위치에서 지는 현상입니다. 영국의 선사유적지 스톤헨지와 같은 “헨지/henge”를 사용합니다. 단어에서 느껴지듯 마치 맨하탄에서 태양을 기리는 것 같은 의미를 풍기죠. 인파 속에 묻혀 가만히 붉은 해를 보고 있으면 정말 의식을 치루듯 경건한 분위기가 들기도 합니다.
Have you ever been to the Manhattanheng

I had the same nightmare three times before the eventful evening. I woke up seeing a light and realizing that there was a stranger in our bedroom, I tried to scream to warn my family of the danger but only a muffled gurgling sound came out of my throat. I could not go back to sleep afterwards because of the adrenalin rush and cold sweat all over my body and my racing heart.
The winters evening before my husband’s 50th birthday was as every other Saturday evening. My teenage daughter and one of her friends that were sleeping over wanted to go to the local show with their other friends and so we said our family prayers before they went out, asking for their and our protection. They returned home at about 10.30 pm and said good night to us. Our house was built in a U and my teenage daughter and her friend slept on the
I recently bought my grandfather an AncestryDNA kit. He believes that he shares a common ancestor or perhaps is a descendent from the 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. He shares the surname and has been told by his relatives that are long dead that there is a connection on his fathers side to the president(The man pictured below). On his mothers side he believes that he is directly related to President Kennedys right hand man.
I may also be related to Tairrdelbach Ua Conchobair on my fathers side, who was a high king in Ireland during the 12th century.
My research has taken me as far back as 1847 so far. I have identified an Owen Grant of Carnaney who died in 1847, It looks like his son James Grant moved to New York and had put on quite the extravagant funeral for his father, costing 3 pounds 1 shilling and 5 pence, about £2000 in todays money(can be seen in the church record below). The real question
When the markets crash I always like to do fun things instead of watching graphs I have no control over. I no longer trade.
But I still thought I saw a nice opportunity when the price of SBD jumped on Poloniex. I don't like exchanges that much anymore. But a small extra effort for such a nice premium looked well worth it.
But when I tried to send some SBD there I realized quickly that for whatever reason they disabled deposits. I decided to do what I like best instead. Grill and chill. I said to Bianca lets go to the shop.
I’ve been a parent for roughly a combined one million hours, given my eight children and the time they have existed on this planet outside of the womb. If an expert is a person who does a thing for 10,000 hours, then I am expert about 100 times over, but somehow, each day, it’s like you’re starting from scratch in so many ways.
You can never learn how much parenting gives back to you, not fully. You can never learn how much it can hurt and bring joy at the same time. You can’t fully appreciate the depths of disappointment, or the highs of elation it can bring into your life, until you jump in and experience it full time.
This last weekend, I got to experience my family, almost all of it, in an abstract that really gave me a great picture of my place in the universe and what a lucky, lucky man I am. Steemit had something to do with making it all possible, so, I wanted to share my story wit
가끔 딸애한테서 전화가 오곤 하는데 전화를 제때 못받을 경우가 많다. 이유는 핸드폰이 너무 부피가 커서 주머니에 잘 안들어가기 때문에 하우스 바닥이나 평상에다가 그냥 두기 때문이다.
그 얘기를 했더니 딸애가 좋은게 있다고 택배로 보내줬고 사용해보니 왜 이걸 이제서야 알았나 싶다.
저렴한거라서 주변 지인들과도 나눠서 쓸수 있을 정도로 넉넉히 보내줬다.
요 핑크색이 참 예쁘다.
내용물은 굉장히 심플하다. 포장지를 벗기고 양면테이프를 그냥 핸드본 뒤쪽에 붙이면 된다.
하~~~ 너무 좋다.
하우스 바닥에 핸드폰을 놓아두다보니 흙 때문에 핸
Boooooom!!!!!! Boooooom!!!!!! Is all I heard as I was running home. Once I got to the corner on my block I turned around ducked into the corner bodega. Everyone in the store knew me and my family because we lived up the street. In the city we all had a corner bodega that knew everyone in the neighborhood. As I ran in there I remember everyone standing by the door gazing outside. As soon as the saw me they asked me what was going on. I told them I was as clueless as them. Than we all heard the loud Booms again. It was gunfire from the police officers. They were shooting in the air because they had no other option to disperse the crowd. What they couldn't do in ten minutes gunshots accomplished in 30 seconds. You see everyone knows the rule in the hood. If you hear gunfire you either duck or start
At the moment Steemit is like a big box where posts are thrown in and are only separated by tags.
Most of the posts that are trending are written in English but there is actually a lot of activity in other languages. Korean, Chinese and Spanish for instance.
Here are the tags, just look at that activity!
I guess for me it's easier to see how much more active, bigger and stronger the Steem blockchain is today compared to a year ago. I saw it all unfold from July 2016 by being here every day since then.
From the scenario of total DOOM to the awesome growth of today where I believe the blockchain is now to solid to fail.
When the signup procedure is perfected and communities arrive I'm expecting magical things. All you have to do i
"I was two years old when my parents realized that I different. I never crawled, I couldn’t hold my head up for too long and I had trouble walking. What I have is known as Muscular Dystrophy and there is no cure for it. They soon learnt I would be wheel chair bound for life even though mum denied it till I became a teenager.
Then one day my parents sat me down and told me I would have to make some tough choices in life- There were certain things I would never be able to do. Karachi is not easily accessible for people in my condition. Life was going to be difficult. That same day I also made a promise to myself; I would not let this disease define me –
I would not let this city be inaccessible for me.
Today, I’m a 25 year old Graduate and nothing can hold me back. Yes, there were plenty of struggles but I made every inaccessibility accessible for myself and now I am on a mission to create awareness, to make people understand how important it is for ramps to be made in every public space so that people
When on holiday what better time to check out the local craft beer situation! Not the barren wasteland I had worried about, there are loads here!!
What do we have?
This is a meaty one and no mistake. Full of fizz and a delicious bitterness. To check the colour I had to pour a wee
All I saw was a shadow cover the left side of my face. I knew for sure that we were going to get down right there in the hallway. He stopped right in front of me and looked me dead in the eyes. He had fire in his eyes as he stared into my face. He turned around and started smiling. Maybe he was just gonna start teasing me instead of bashing my skull in. The other kids began to laugh in anticipation of what this kid was gonna say. Of course I stood there like an idiot. Than the most surprising thing happened. The kid started to make fun of all the other kids there. Screaming at the top of his lungs that nobody better mess with me. I just stood there with a puzzled look on my face. Did this guy just defend me. I think he did but he
As I have wrote about in two of my previous work. I made mentioned that the most time I spend on a game right now goes to Hearthstone. If you do not know, Hearthstone is Blizzard's very own Card Game that was derived from the heroes, monsters and maybe part of the lore on their MMO World of Warcraft.
I have been playing this game a few months after the launch in 2014. And I have to admit, at that time, I did not find it very appealing. Maybe because my time was spent on other things in life and having Hearthstone (No luck whatsoever on any legendary) is going to make things a little more difficult to juggle around. So I decided to just leave it there for now.
I only played the game again when I bought my very first flagship phone from LG, the V10(Deceased). I had to shorten my game time on the other games just to accommodate Hearthstone.
Hearthstone proved to be very slow. As an F2p player, getting destroyed by D
She hugged her knees into her chest, hoping that it would all go away. Her eyes were red and irritated from all the dust, and from crying. She looked up at her parents, her mother gave her a sign to be quite. After a long day they had finely managed to find a place they could be safe – for now.
She looked around and realized that they were hiding in an old house, it was hard to tell what room they were supposed to be in. The walls where falling apart, and the roof had huge holes in it and didn’t shield them from the rain.
Suddenly she could hear something that came closer. She tried to sneak a peek at it, and to her surprise it was one of them. It looked like it was supposed to be a man, she couldn’t define his age – All this clothes were ripped, and most of his skin were gone from his face. The skin that was left had a gray tone to it, and he
About “Colfax Place”
The following is one of the few non-fiction pieces of a personal nature that I will ever publish. Considering the nature of this collection, I felt it appropriate to include it at the end. It was written during my first summer of grad school where the focus was on the personal narrative, a thing I’d never explored much of until that moment; I always found fiction to be the far more interesting of the writing disciplines.
To be fair, memory is a strange thing, and often unreliable. While some dates and moments may not be the exact truth, they are the truth as I remember them and that is as much truth as I can provide. Many of the moments within are the absolute truth, specifically those of experiences during the latter part of my time in Oklahoma City. Earlier ones should be taken with a grain of salt…at least as far as placement in time is concerned.
