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

  So, I am so so thankful that my fab friend searchingforhumor.blog nominated me for this. She is funny, a great photographer, interesting and her blog is truly special and totally different from anything that I have read. She is a great new friend in the bloggerverse and I implore you to read her material! You…

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…

So, when is it time to let go? When it comes to pets, the answer is all too difficult…

So, ML's sister is constantly taking her dogs to the vet for surgeries, or at least one of them is ill and older and needs more care. I made the comment to ML that at some point, it might be more prudent to put the dog down. I know that sounds harsh or uncaring. But…

So, the old adage is true! Attitude is EVERYTHING…

So, I have this super sweet and kind friend who works at my neighborhood grocery store. She is the customer service manager and has worked there for the 14 years it has been open. She was a stay at home mom/seamstress until both of her sons finished high school and started work at this store…

So, I have decided to define “clean” and “fit” for myself…

So, I am a size 12/14 and I am not super tall. Some would call me chubby, some say I look fab as I am and what others say, I don't really care at this point because I eat better and healthier than I know. I have a goal of losing 20 percent of my…
