Editor's note: Toriis blogging about rebounding from unemployment due to the coronavirus at My Rebound by FOX 17. She is back working as a bartender at the River Stop Saloon in Newaygo and as a cosmetologist at The Freckled Fawn in Fremont. She is married and lives in Fremont.

The mask mandate has been heavier than ever, and of course, I have my own opinions on that, but I’ll keep them to myself. Ha!


With that happening and everything being pushed harder than ever, that means the bar scene is dying down.

It’s been slower than usual which is to be expected, I guess. It’s just so hit or miss with every night that I work. I don’t know if I’m gonna be running around like crazy or having a calm, collected night.

As for the salon job, I’m staying busy and getting new clients weekly! Which is amazing. I’m staying on top of things and meeting all sorts of new people. It’s great. I’m thankful.

We had my little brother's graduation party a few weeks ago and after that he had to quarantine himself for two weeks before he leaves for basic. We’re coming up to the end of his quarantine, and he leaves Sunday morning. I’ve been trying to find every spare second I can to spend with him or talk to him before he goes so that’s been difficult. Even if I have to sit outside yelling across the yard to him, I’m still happy to spend what time I can with him.

It’s still a crazy world out there, and I’m exhausted from trying to keep up with it. It’s tiring waking up every morning not knowing if your jobs are going to be shut down again.


But here I am, still working and still living and that’s all I can ask for.
