Separate apart your job with the Houston -- what tell me about the the start of that what you -- looking to do.
And I started that blog okay so I have a master's degree in journalism from New York University that -- that I got in 2009.
And shortly there after -- is working.
As a stringer for us weekly doing right carver reporting -- not really making very much many doing that and -- I was looking for full time workers and journalists and -- been unable to find in this industry can be tough for new graduates.
-- -- -- I was very fresh -- us.
Not being able to find work.
In the industry -- even able to find -- on actually so I just had to go back to dancing in in frustration.
I started this blog Daria -- an angry stripper and it.
It's a collection of stories about people who I'm mad at the club who.
Were less than genteel that's just feeding.
Before we get to the device itself what -- you -- it was at all difficult decision but turning moral component of that decision -- ago and strip and take my clothes off and -- Look at -- appreciate me was there any moral component of that decision.
You know before I started dancing I had some preconceived notions of -- about strippers.
And the reasons why they would do it -- that there are addicted said drugs served you know or they had some kind of mental helmets I don't know I was up and but I.
I had a couple of friends who had worked ensure clubs in Texas Texas is very strip club family -- Nice he didn't know and down.
And after listening to their experience I decide to -- -- and give it a shot I was 22 years old I was still an undergrad undergrad and I University of Houston.
And once I tried it has like this isn't so bad in fact it's kind of easy.
That is easy money.
It was easy money and there's not like you don't have to show up at a certain time he -- -- make your own schedule -- a lot of freedom and for somebody -- in college.
That can be a great benefit.
Or you -- -- thoughts about the men though who.
Treatment the clubs in the people who -- watching him.
There'll over the map I mean there's some good guys are some really bad guys and it's large part of it depends on the -- -- working so at first I was working yet.
Not a very good come I you know I didn't really know I was a baby stripper and so I just worked in the first place and I am never yeah.
And but then you know you get guys who do you actually care about your.
While being in the like you know you can go -- -- -- better club you should go here there and so goes summer house and in.
There's other levels of clubs in the -- there's nothing absolutely absolutely.
And of course the higher level of club the better you're gonna get treated in the -- of the customer the high quality custom absolutely yes so you -- -- -- and and I.
-- -- that diary room of an angry strippers -- Up all of your writings are in the books you can x.s and unlike that in every chance.
To see some of the things you've written -- and I would guess.
Would you say that customers phone -- certain categories.
They do -- -- and an entire chapter and -- and anger stripper is titled customers to avoid.
And I customers like -- the drunk this guy and cloud is usually customer -- avoid.
Overly aggressive cancers.
Menu have exchanges there's who -- they kissing in the they're shiny kiss mean -- -- a you know like you'd need I'm sure these guys meanwhile though kind of like.
You know draped their armor on me kind of -- me -- trailing kiss me.
And I'm sort of pulling away it's like this Tug of war that goes on between shippers and customers and -- -- -- -- in India that but I don't wanna -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I would be angry -- with.
The men who were like condescending.
Or just completely Ruder.
Or clueless I was also angry that I was still having to do this job despite having and you know an an advanced degree.
And dealing with many -- wiring UN school right now don't you think you should be in school on I wanted to be -- -- -- the school I actually have two degrees in Nigeria anyway.
-- here's spite of this education in this economy you're able to get a job -- would -- the on the money.
That you could make doing something that you didn't really want to have to be done.
I would have been happy to take a pay attention to have a job and office and eventually got a plan where I'm so tired of working as a dancer -- like you don't have to wake up until 1 o'clock in the afternoon and you don't know where it's you know you do kind of -- -- -- -- like I woman.
Find a way to work in a regular you know regular working world so I started volunteering at a hospital in Houston just be able to get that kind of interaction with normal everyday people and -- secret.
