Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…

Don’t Mind the Heavy Breathing

I’ve been running lately, and I’ve been street running lately. I figured it was harder to give up when you still had to get back home. At any rate, I live in SW Portland. If you know the area, it’s HILLY, there are HILLS everywhere. Not hills, but OMG BECKY! RUN FOR THE HILLS, hills….

Are You Talkin’ to Me?

I’ve had an interesting day. Sure I did some of the normal things: shopping, moving boxes, preparing for the next week, the usual things. Those aren’t the interesting parts of my day, I won’t bore you with those details, (I know, usual, right?) Today I was invited to go to church with some friends. Normally,…

Music: Muse

I’ve been spending a considerable time talking to myself. Not in a crazy person way, but more of an introspective way. I’ve got a whole bunch of things going on in my own personal freeway. The exits aren’t clearly marked, there’s rain coming down, my windshield wipers are barely working and there’s a semi-truck behind…

I don’t know…

I work in an industry where most people work on their own, yet inside a team, a group, or an office. The statement I never hear is “I don’t know.” (Used under Creative Commons: Thanks Karola Riegler!) At least, I don’t hear it enough. As someone who teaches people how to utilize a system that…

Disappointment

This really doesn’t have much of an answer, but I really need to find a place to just ramble on with my thoughts. This may or may not make a whole lot of sense – I apologize in advance. What do you do with disappointment. When someone has really let you down. When you really…

New Year, Old Habits

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle Every New Years’ eve we hear the same question over and over. “What is your New Year’s resolution?” Mine is always the same. I don’t make any. No goal is going to be achieved by making a snap decision…

Solo-Christmas

“You can’t be alone on Christmas” I heard this many times in the last week. I didn’t have any plans for Christmas. My family is close and we planned to have Christmas on New Years Day. So I didn’t have any plans for Christmas. (Used under creative commons licensing. Photo Credit: Scottfeldstein) As I woke…

Overwhelmed and Tethered.

Wow. What the span of two weeks does to your perception of everything. Sometimes you’re overwhelmed when a thing comes, and you do not realize the magnitude of the affair at that moment. When you get away from it, you wonder, did it really happen to you? – Marian Anderson Over the last couple of…

It, like me, is new and improved.

I just wanted to share a couple of things. First, as you may be aware. I’ve been punishing myself by going to the gym. It’s really starting to pay off. I’ve seen a drop of about 30 pounds since I started. I’ve also had to stop wearing some of my clothes because I look like…
