Endings Are A Time for New Beginnings

Endings Are A Time for New Beginnings

It’s been five months in the making, but my last day with Verizon Wireless happens this week.  Back on October 12th, when they told us our call center would be closing, March 24th felt like a long time away.  Now it’s not, it’s this week.  I’m...
Caution!  Writing Prompt Ahead

Caution! Writing Prompt Ahead

I love the irony of this picture.  The caution sign at our condo.  As a member of the Board, I knew how much this sign originally cost. It was only up for 1 month before it got plowed down on July 4th at 8 am in the morning by someone who was drunk.  8 am in the...

Why Is It So Hard to Leave?

Why Is It So Hard to Leave?

Even though I’m moving out at the end of March, I’ve been putting off the packing.  I’ve been having such a hard time getting motivated for it that I’ve been asking myself why is it so hard to leave? This decision to move back home has been a...

Are You Afraid To Try New Things?

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done...
