I’m a writer which is a poor choice of profession if you’re looking to have a big paycheck every week.
- But following one’s passion often comes with all sorts of sacrifices.
I do some copywriting work that pays some of the bills. But I also have to make sure that I’m saving some writing time for me. So I work a three shifts a week as a waiter at a fancy, downtown restaurant. And I just a bonus tip that was cannabis. Now, it’s not quite the way it sounds. It’s not like some dining patron laid a thick bag of girl scout cookies on me. That wasn’t the case at all. In fact, this lady is a regular and is someone who is often dining at our restaurant for business purposes. I make sure that she is taken very good care of in front of prospective clients. She really does appreciate it. And I’m not just talking the size of the gratuity, although it’s always quite generous. No, she really has taken the time to actually get to know me a bit and has offered her help when it comes to her connections and my writing. I appreciate that quite a bit. So last Sunday, she showed up for brunch which is a bit unusual. This time, she had her sister with her and they were having a blast. It was so much fun taking care of them because we were laughing so much. And man, they hit that buffet hard. Turns out they had stopped at the cannabis dispensary on the way over. And I got four cannabis edible gummies along with a very generous cash tip.
