I swear, 3/4 of the effort goes into coming up with a title that I think is witty enough to grab someone’s attention, that or is something I find pleasing in it’s final form. The idea for this blog entry has been kicking around in my head for a good week or so, but when I came here to write it, I...

@chefbethrogers I am definitely glad that I wasn't told my priorities when I was younger, that is most definitely you have to grow into as you go. You have to make your own mistakes and find out what is most important to you so that you can put the priorities in order for you. It really is a work in process to first be okay with putting yourself first, but I think if I work at it, much like you have, I will get it to be more comfortable. :)

@_smurfzilla_That's exactly what I was doing, coasting along, thinking because I was paying off my student loan, and taking care of things like that, that I was making myself a priority, but really all I was doing was making specific things in my life the priority, and that's not going to get me where I want to be going, so I am working on the change.  I will keep up the good work as long as you do the same! :D 

Musical Moments?

Tonight I finally got to see Into The Woods, as it made it’s way through my town a few weeks before it comes out on Blu-ray, and I am damn glad I saw it on the big screen first. Something like that has to be seen big and loudly, then you can bring it home and experience it over and over again...

So Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, which is February 18th this year, and I had to decide what I would give up for it. Last year I gave up Twitter with a friend of mine, she is giving up Twitter again this year and that got me started thinking about whether I would give something up as well.

At first I thought I might just...

I work shift work, and through this I have encountered the phenomenon that is the feel of a day. For years I had Tuesday and Wednesday off, then for a brief period it was Sunday and Monday, and then I was bumped to Monday and Tuesday. All those days were close enough that everything felt the same for me, more or less, but now it...

I know that song is more about relationships and getting over them, but it keeps playing in my head as I reflect on the topic that has been bouncing around in there for a month or better. I keep going back to the idea of a wrong and right way of life, an unquestioning existence if you will.

I was in church a month ago...

Let me just start by saying that 2014 was really good to me. I am happy that I cannot really think of anything that I would change about how I lived it, other than spending habits, but then I have always told myself those need to be changed.

I don’t have big plans for today, no raucous parties to welcome in 2015, but I...

Twitter is one of those things that millions of us use, and we all use it differently.That’s the beauty of it and so many other forms of social media, we find our own place within it, and we make it home. Like any home, however, it isn’t always exactly what we want it to be, but all we can do is put...

Somewhere after coffee break at work the other night, I found myself the brand new owner of some unexpected energy, and damn it if it didn’t follow me all the way home. That really doesn’t happen very often, usually when 9 o’clock break comes around, I am scrounging up a little caffeine and hoping to wind down my day nice and peaceful...

I have gotten into this habit of opening up WordPress in a tab, and having it mix in with my other open tabs, all with the intention of writing something, anything in it. Some of you may have noticed that roughly two months have gone by, and for those of you that haven’t, well I don’t blame you, I barely noticed it flying...

So the latest two blog entries on here were written while I was on vacation. I didn't realize that my Instagram wasn't hooked up here, so unfortunately those fun pictures didn't post then, but hey, you can find them now. :D I will soon be writing about the aftermath of the trip, stay tuned!
