To Be Purposed To Death.

I’ve noticed a trend lately. Meetups & Tweetups are being turned into “Purposed” Meetings, CauseUps etc. I know everyone wants to feel like they’re doing some good, but I can’t help but wonder, are these just the new “Grip & Grin?” Maybe my purpose for going to tweetups is different than everyone else. I go…

Silence

I’ve grown up in the age of computers. I’ve grown up in the 24-hour-gotta-have-it-now generation. That said, I love information. I live in a highly connected world, 24 hour news, 60,000 tweets, Facebook conversations. I’m all in. Recently, I’ve disconnected a little bit. I found that I was sitting at a computer, watching TV, or…

…Like the wind

So, if you’ve followed me on Twitter, Facebook, anywhere, you’ve heard me, no doubt, lamenting my decision to run a 5k. Well, I did it last weekend. I just wanted to share some pictures from it. Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement. What I was struck by, was a couple of things, First, there…

Following the Pack (or not)

We must know what we think and speak out, even at the risk of unpopularity. –  Eleanor Roosevelt I should start by saying that I’m not, generally, a fan of generalized personality tests, yes, there are some truths to them; though, you can take any number of quizzes and get a variety of results.

Taking Stock…

Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot and days of old lang syne? 2010 has been an interesting year for me. Lately, I’ve had to take a deep breath and take stock of all the things in my life which have impacted me in a good, bad,…

My Momma Always Told Me…

I was thinking recently about all the advice I’ve ever received both personally and professionally. There is one thing that has always stuck with me; from my mom, who said, “If you want it bad enough, you’ll work hard enough to get it.” I’ve been thinking about that for the last couple of days and…

Recap: Sarah & Wendy

I can’t believe I haven’t written my post about this. At the beginning of the month, I mentioned that my friends @SarahMSalter and @WeightWhat (Wait? What?) were coming to town. I can’t believe I haven’t recapped that for Y’all (That’s for you Sarah). First. It was a blast. I haven’t laughed that hard or that…

My Weekend….

I’ve had quite the busy weekend. I started out the weekend with no intention of major trips, though it seems that is what happens quite often to me. Friday: I found myself starting the weekend with nothing planned. After I’d gotten home from work I received a call from my friend Chris and he wanted…

Friendship…

It’s funny, I love Twitter & Facebook, I love the ability to keep up with friends at my own pace and as I am able; however, life sometimes becomes really busy and its sometimes hard to keep up with those who don’t reside on the interwebs. I know, in this day and age it seems…
