I was walking into my apartment building one day, and there was an elderly gentleman sitting on the chair in the front area. He had something in his hands that I couldn’t see. As I approached him, he started talking with me. What he had was a sort of reel. When I asked what it was for, he said, “To fly a kite.” And thus borne was this idea. I had immediately put it on my list. When I was out and about, I managed to find a kite that was…….. cheap. I’m not going to lie, I don’t know … Continue reading Fly a Kite (#1)
I was at work the other day, and someone must have said something to trigger a memory of mine. It made me think of someone. I haven’t thought of him in a while. He was… is someone so special. When I first met him, he was 7. He was cute as a button, and as wild as any 7 year old boy would be. He had so much energy & happiness. To hear him laugh instantly made you laugh as well. I don’t know how he did it, but he managed to have good manners. He was surprisingly well-behaved also. … Continue reading When is ‘Long Enough’?
I have been to so many places that I’m starting to blend them together. They all seem like one big experience, and the people I talk with give me strange looks when I bring up programs that we aren’t currently using. I’m on another assignment. We were taken to our ‘training desks’, and I thought, “Wasn’t there hand-sanitizer here? With green lid? I know I saw it.” Keep in mind – this is the first time I sat at this desk. So, after I sit down and realize I haven’t ever been here before, I try to remember where it … Continue reading Blended
There are a couple of friendships that both my fiancee and I are in that are….gridlocked. I have had numerous conversations with both him and other friends on ways to do something about this stalemate. Here’s the situation, you can determine for yourselves the solutions. My fiancee has a friend that he has known for years. They are on good terms; always got along. So, one day, this friend starts texting John (my fiancee), and says, “We should hang out sometime.” John replies, “Yea, sure.” – End situation – If anyone is having difficulty decoding this, let me explain. Both … Continue reading Stalemate
I’ve been forgetting a lot of things lately. I was reading an article not too long ago, and there was a company mentioned in it and they provided an abbreviation after it (e.g. International Advertising Agency – IAA). Seems simple, right? As I continued to read the rest of the article, and IAA appeared, I had no idea as to what or who IAA was and why they were being referenced. So, I scanned back up in the article and found out IAA was International Advertising Agency. Okay, good. That’s right, I remember now. I read on and had to … Continue reading Has the Moon Lost Her Memory?
There’s something I want to talk about that might seem kind of weird. I don’t know if I’m the only person experiencing this or not. There’s been a lot going on in my life right now and I feel as if my head was shaken like a snow globe and everything is swirling around. I was at work the other day, and I was reading an eBook on the material that I’m going to be writing about; studying my craft. While I was reading, out of nowhere came this flashback: I was in elementary school and it was during recess. … Continue reading Flashbacks
For work, I usually wake up about 5:45 a.m. However, I don’t actually wake up until about 9 a.m. This is a problem because I don’t really remember all that happened from 5:45 a.m. and 9 a.m. I’ll have difficulty differentiating if it really happened or if I dreamt it happened. Furthermore, my mornings blend in since I do a lot of the same things every day. I really, really, really, have a problem remembering putting on deodorant. Here’s why. I don’t immediately put it on right out of the shower because when I go to get dressed, I have deodorant … Continue reading Did I or Didn’t I?
There was a day when I couldn’t sleep. Okay, so I guess it was a night that I couldn’t sleep. I was up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at about 3 a.m. I tossed and turned and was unable to go to sleep. Finally, at about 6 a.m., I decided to end things and just get up. After I took care of some morning rituals, I decided to have a Monster with breakfast. I swear it’s more than just vitamin B that they put in there. I’m thinking it’s along the lines of cocaine or something of the sorts. I got this … Continue reading Let Your Hands Do the Work
I am so incredibly fortunate to get to go to two concerts this summer. This is the first of them: Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20. I have to say, I have fun no matter who I go to see. I had such a great time singing, dancing, and drinking. I’m not going to lie, it was pretty freaking awesome. I got to spend some quality time with really great people and I am so abundantly lucky to have these opportunities and these wonderful, amazing people in my life! Good time, good friends, good music! Rock on! Continue reading Summer Concerts
Sometimes, I find myself thinking, “Is this real?” It’s hard to believe how much my life has changed in just a matter of weeks. Sometimes, I’ll think that these past 6 months have just sort of been a dream. “Did I really live that life?” I’ll often find myself pondering. If someone would have told me my future on January 1, 2012 that this was how my life was going to be, I would have seriously laughed. I wouldn’t have believed it for a second. But what’s really hard for me, is wrapping my head around it all. It’s true … Continue reading Is This Real?
