Tis’ The Season of Black Friday

It’s that time again where a lot of retail stores world wide and online is gearing up for all types of sales; marking prices at it’s lowest so customers can buy them.  What’s so crazy is that people will actually camp out the night before whether it’s cold or not waiting for doors to open so they can get what they want.  How many of you all will actually do that or have done that? There is nothing in this world that would actually make me wait in line for hours at a time.  I work at a retail store currently and the first year I’ve worked Black Friday, people were lined up.  I’m not even sure what they wanted so bad that they couldn’t wait until the doors actually opened.  

All I can say is that to prepare for the madness is to mentally plan what you are going to stores for and plan out how long you will be in there and what you will need.  Remember lines will be long, so patience is a must.  If you are planning to go out on Black Friday, what do you normally get? Because I work at a retail store, I don’t even bother to shop there after work because I don’t feel like dealing with the crowd nor the line.  For me personally, it’s best that I work on Thanksgiving day (I don’t know why they even open up on that day) so that I can work when it opens and into the early morning.  There is no way under the sun that I will be working that Friday.  I think another reason why people like to be out in the crowd so much is just to see what others are shopping for or because they just want to be in the crowd just to tell people that they went out on Friday.

Virginia Native Missy Elliott Donates $2500 to her Alma Mater Manor High School

Portsmouth, VA native Missy Elliott, singer, rapper, writer, music producer and dancer stopped by her old stomping ground, Woodrow Wilson High School which was called Manor High School when Elliott was attending there.  A 90’s graduate of the HS took a tour of her old high school where she met students and staff while taking selfies as well.  

 

 

She stopped by the high school just before performing at Something in the Water at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront that kicks off this weekend.  Before she left, Elliott donated $25k to the school in which it has to be used for that particular school only.
