Over the past couple of weeks, I have been creatively stumped. I believe I have come to a bit of self discovery about why and having figured out at least a portion of it I hope to resolve it soon and move on.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I work with four of the unhappiest women over 50, I have ever worked with in my life. I don’t talk about work outside of work and I don’t blog about it either and truth be told I don’t plan on starting now. This will be the one and only post about work (unless of course I get a promotion).
I have internalized issues I don’t normally internalize nor usually care about. Read the rest of this entry
Ha! It’s funny that this topic should come up because I was going to write a post about time today.
I don’t usually write about work just because when I leave work, I leave work at the office and the twain shall never meet outside of the hallowed office walls and halls. I don’t friend people I work with on Facebook. I don’t follow their Twitter feed. I don’t go to birthday parties or happy hour — unless it’s company sponsored and even then I gag at the thought. Don’t get me wrong, for the most part I really enjoy the folks I work with and my job. It’s just after eight, nine, ten hours of day with you, I’d rather spend my winding down time without you.
So, back to the prompt at hand. I just got a new Read the rest of this entry
So here are this weeks to Five Question Friday (5QF).
1. What was the most productive thing you have done this week?
Not choke the living daylights out of a couple of my coworkers. Honestly.
And homework. Since I decided to go back to school and get a master’s in Adult Education its work, work, work. I’ll be glad when I can go out and have some fun, fun, fun.
2. Enjoying the winter or ready for spring?
Well since we haven’t had any snow, I’m ready for spring. I was really hoping for one snow storm, but not Snowmageddon snow.
The thing with Spring though is that it comes with everything that I’m allergic to. Remember that movie The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Read the rest of this entry
After the Daily Prompt: Far From Normal (which was quite a bit of fun to sit down and think of some fun facts about me to share), I thought it would pretty cool if I continued this from time-to-time. I discovered My Little Life and she posts five questions for you to answer every Friday.
So, here it goes.
I’m not sure I would call this a hobby, but for some people it is. I want to learn to skydive. I am horrifically afraid of heights. Step stools scare me, but for some reason I want to go skydiving.
2. What do you wish you could have delivered to your house but does not deliver?
This is a toughie as most stuff I want to have delivered can be delivered. I think I will have to go with Baskin Robbins Jamoca Ice Cream with caramel sauce. Oh dear just writing this wants me to go on my way home.
3. What’s your favorite snow day activity? Inside and out?
I don’t have just one outdoor/indoor activity. It all depends on how much snow we get. I enjoy making a good snow ball or snow man, and of course snow angels. If it’s not going to amount to enough for that than I revert to sticking my tongue out and letting the snow fall on my it. My favorite inside activities would include curling up on the sofa with a good book or movie or take a nap.
4. Would you meet a stranger from an Internet dating site?
I’ve already done that. Would I do it again? I did. Each date was really nice, but there have been a few that gave me the creeps. Even though they didn’t turn into boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, there are some that I still have as friends today. But it’s something that you definitely have to be careful about. Always, always, always meet in a public place and females never get in his car or go back to his place or follow him anywhere.
5. If you had to spend 35 hours in a car with 4 other people, who would you choose?
Ghandi — talk about his philosophy
Steve Jobs — would love to discuss how he made it seem you need an Apple something for day-to-day living
Ellen Degeneres or Whoopi Goldberg — I guarantee you, we’ll all need a good joke and a laugh if we’re in a car for 35 hours
Aretha Franklin — because we’re going to need somebody that can hold a note
Andy Warhol — so he could immortalize our shenanigans. Because there will be shenanigans, I guarantee that
