A Little About Me:
I'm a figure skater.
I work at Starbucks as a barista.
I love going to Broadway plays.
My best friends mean the world to me.
I enjoy spending my days off walking around downtown.
I live in NYC.
- My favorite play on Broadway right now is Jersey Boys which I have seen 5 times and plan on seeing it more times. I have seen the musical, Pippin 127 times on Broadway and Spider-Man Turn off the Dark on Broadway 219 times. When I find a play that I love...I go to that play all the time LOL.
-My family means the world to me as well as my best friends who I trust my life with.
-My journal usually consists of my everyday life, what goes on at work, two of my best friends:Reeve and Erik, and just anything random.

HAHA - yeah. It kills me that a guy can look better in a dress than me. One gay guy I worked with several years ago told me once about what kind of personal care products he bought and how much he spent every month on them. I said, "dude, you spend way more on that stuff every month than I do. That's just not right."
The company I work for doesn't have a union either, but at least they treat us fairly. I've had issues with hyper-controlling managers, though, so I can identify with what you're going through. Higher management usually takes complaints seriously where I work, though. One of my former managers was actually removed from management after multiple reports of verbal harassment were confirmed. So complaining really does work.
And I'm glad you get to keep the tips. My sister just gave me a Starbucks card for my birthday, and I wanted to make sure of the tipping policy there before I redeem it.
So, would your job be to check tickets at the door and direct people to their seats? That's usually what I think of an usher as doing. At TPAC in Nashville they have volunteers doing that, but I guess they're trying to keep the ticket prices down. Or maybe it has to do with different operating rules. Workers unions are optional here in Tennessee, so that could be the difference.
Also, I have a question about Starbucks. Do the clerks get to keep the tips people leave in the jars? I like to leave a tip when I get good service, but I want to make sure it's going to the people behind the counter and not to the company. Some places I go operate like that, and if I find that they do, I don't leave tips. Just curious to know.
My sister follows figure skating on the internet. She hates the fact that it doesn't give much of any credit to the artistry or emotion a performer puts into the program. She and I both agree that Michelle Kwan should have won gold in Nagano in 1998, but Tara Lipinski's triple-triple got the extra points, even though she lacked the emotion Kwan had. Ironically, everyone in Olympic level ladies skating does triple-triple moves now, so it's not even special anymore.
I forgot to mention that Simon Cowell really made me mad when, in an early season, he told a female contestant on live TV that she needed to lose weight. That may have been true, but having had a struggle with my own weight for years that I finally conquered, it made me really angry and I felt it was none of his business, especially when you consider that there are plenty of successful and talented singers out there that are more than a little on the heavy side. Simon's job was to critique vocals and nothing else, in my opinion. Also, I detest him for the fact that he bedded his best friend's wife and had a baby with her. He's good looking, yes, but a morally bereft rat with an over-inflated ego.
I do have to admit I get rather bored by the contestants on The Voice singing the same pop songs every season that I don't care for. I got into it back in season 2 when Chris Mann competed as a crossover artist. He's currently in the role of The Phantom in the American tour of Phantom of the Opera, but I saw some of it posted on Youtube and I didn't think his voice was right for the part at all, not to mention that he's in his mid-thirties, and I think that's too young for the Phantom role. But I do like his other music, his voice and his brand reminds me a lot of Josh Groban and Josh Groban is DREAMY.
By the way, if I did try out for the voice, crossover is the genre I'd go for. I have a classical voice, and I like the idea of classical with a modern twist.
I usually don't have the patience to figure out electronic gadgets, but I know what you mean about lugging books around. Definitely an advantage there with a reader, I usually just relax in the evening at home and read.
Yeah, John Stamos is still handsome as ever. I watched Full House back in the early 90's, and he doesn't seem to have changed all that much since then. He doesn't have the crazy hairstyle he did then, but he seems to age well.
