An Essential Spotlight: Finding the Helpers – Joe Carcia

Categories: Essential Spotlight
Can you describe your job/role in the community?
  • My job is working at Giant Eagle in Mt. Lebanon. Usually in the bakey, but as of right now I am cleaning to keep people from getting sick. In the bakery I cut muffins, pies, and cookies. I miss the bakery. I work 9-14 now, but I also used to be a stock clerk. When I was a clerk I worked from 12-8:30pm, and I put away mostly milk and eggs. I still love visiting my friends there.
What has been your experience working during this time?
  • It’s definitely busy. Everyone has to wear a mask, and I do too. I also wear gloves while I am sanitizing areas. Outside of work I have been staying at home and going for walks, and it’s nice to get some fresh air once in a while.
What about your job feels empowering/positive?
  • I like saying hi to the people I know coming into the store, it feels like a ghost town outside so it is nice to see other people. I also am pretty good at washing dishes and I like doing things I am good at, so that has been positive for me.
Anything else you would like to share?
  • Being with my coworkers has been good for me because they are good friends of mine, but I can’t wait to go back to FC and see everyone! I hope everyone is doing well.

TwitterFacebookLinkedinPrintemailOn July 29th, 2020, at 10:00 AM, I signed on to Zoom for a Friendship Circle session involving poetry. Following a review of the Rules of Respect, the participants were asked if they would rather have the power of flight or underwater breathing.

Fan Fic Genres By Sarah Lehman

TwitterFacebookLinkedinPrintemailIn my last blog post, I discussed some common terms used by fan fic writers. This time, I’d like to talk about genres, or types of story. Like the stories they’re based on, fan fics can be sorted into several different genres. Romance is one of the most common, but you also have adventure, drama, horror, humor, and so on.… Read More
