November 10th

I'm grateful for a lot today - perhaps because I'm also frustrated by a lot, and I'm subconsciously forcing that out of my system. Typically I'd be ready to sit down and rant, but I can't do that right now, because I'm too happy. Not ecstatic happy or over the top happy or even outwardly… Continue reading November 10th

A Bit of Perspective

It is not often that I take a step back from being disappointed with my line of work and actually appreciate what it is I'm doing. I should do that more often. But I'm more of a chronic critic than anything, and pointing out the charms doesn't come as naturally as pointing out the flaws.… Continue reading A Bit of Perspective

Chivalry – Still Alive?

I spent last week in southern Florida. Florida was my home for four years of university, and I can honestly say that I did not appreciate it enough while I had it. I mean, I had great times and experienced a lot and made fantastic friends. But I really struggled during college (mostly in a… Continue reading Chivalry – Still Alive?

#thanks

Perhaps it's an overdone sort of Thanksgiving time blog post, but I think that especially today when we're surrounded by crimes, violence, injustice (can you say 'Ferguson'??) more than we're usually aware of, it seems the most appropriate time to bring as much attention to the positives as is possible. Back in college, so very… Continue reading #thanks
