I need away from where I live. I came here to finish my college education when I was a single mom in my 40s. I finished it and ended up staying because my children were in school. They are out now, my youngest just turned 20, and I need to go.
Some years ago I became aware that one of the biggest events in this town is a particular festival that is supposed to celebrate the diversity of this community. I'm ashamed to say it's really all about showcasing the wealthy white families - and ther

I'm really wishing my workplace would just shut down again, even if we don't get paid. We're severely understaffed at the moment and I'm not sure how much thinner they can stretch us. When we reopened June 15 we had six full time employees and two part-time employees. As of today we're down to two full time employees and two halftime employees. We had one quit, one hiking accident who has been out for six weeks and will be out another 2-3 weeks, one who left yesterday on a week-long camping trip (the boss), and today one called out sick with symptoms that probably aren't corona but everyone would rather be safe than sorry, who knows when she'll come back. Given the circumstances, we could even offer the two part-time people extra hours but apparently that makes too much sense for my boss to actually do it.
I'm just really sick of trying to do my job and everyone else's while still dealing with corona measures. The stress is definitely getting to me.
