So, Paris, you had me at Bonjour…

So, I thought Rome was all that and a bag of Utz and it is, but France with its wider than life boulevards and matchy-matchy buildings is a contender. I will start out by saying that I like the feel of the Italian lifestyle better from the 2 cities I visited in Italy (Rome and…

So, a poem about going for it

At a meeting Trying to engage Keeping a smile on Feigning interest Pretending to be invested Longing to be inspired Knowing it is impossible Gotta have my own Until I do, I must suffer Creators are restless We need to do our craft Suppression is pain Sleep is kept at a minimal Unless the creation…

So, the more I watch The Crown, the more I realize I was wrong about HRH…

So, I am of the generation of Lady Di, Princess Diana, Princess of Wales. I was a little girl in pigtails on the way to Camp Tomachichi and I was so sad because I could not stay home and watch the whole wedding. I was smitten from the very beginning. Her style, her grace, her…

So yay, got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!!

So, I read 2 poems at an open mic…

So I am quite timid when it comes to my writing. It is so personal to me and is one of the main reasons that I keep this blog on the downlow. Because I want to be able to be me and express myself freely without worrying about what people think. I still do care,…

So, if who you know is what gets you a job, what if you don’t know anyone (with clout)?

So, ML was saying last night that one of the reasons I am not able to get a job that I deserve or truly desire is because it is all in who you know. I guess I don't know the "write" people.:) I want to get a writing or editing job because I have done…

So, sometimes ya gotta write what’s in your soul…

So, of course a lot of us want to write so that tons of people will read what we say.  I remember blogging on Blogger years ago and really being caught up in that line of thinking.  No matter how much I really want this blog to go somewhere, I have to say what is…

So protesting for what you think is wrong is fine, but…

So, if you are or someone you know is a true SJW (social justice warrior), that is awesome! There are so many people who are marching and walking out and standing around with signs who are merely there for the social media pics or to see celebrities (my teen said this, and I concede) Being part…

So, if you are truly miserable at work, these are reasons to go elsewhere…

So, if you are like me and have definite job dissatisfaction and feel that you are not only getting paid a lot less than you are worth, but your efforts are being sabotaged constantly, then you may want to get the heck out of dodge to a place that will make you happy. After all,…

So do you wear your ideology on your sleeve? Should you?

So, are you the type of person that lets everyone know where you stand in regards to things that mean the most to you? That could be religion, politics, your lifestyle, your commitment to veganism or helping animals. Many of us have at least one thing that we feel strongly about and once we get…
