I Love My Blog

I really do. I love the fact that I have a place to lay out my thoughts. I love the fact that I can share random moments with you, my readers, even if sometimes I am a bit reluctant to do so. It may seem as though I do not love this place at times. Those times are when I…

Is Competition Crippling You?

There is nothing like some good old competition to motivate one towards success. There are many stories stating competition as a reason for reaching one’s goal, sometimes before schedule. Questions that come to mind are how much is too much and is it crippling instead of helping? These questions came to mind from a long thought process I experienced spanning…

What’s At The End Of My Rainbow

Hmmm. Good question. This is my Plinky question of the day. It got the writing juices flowing within me this morning so I just figured I’d type out what my mind is thinking at the moment. So, what IS at the end of my rainbow? I’d say peace of mind, I guess. What does that mean? Well, you see, there…

Tears On My Pillow

I gave up something yesterday. Something that I love very much. I gave it up in the name of recovery. In the name of rest. I gave up my dancing. This saddened me more than I realized it did. As soon as I sat down to collect myself when I got home last night I started to cry. I couldn’t…

I’m Still Around

I‘ve just been hiding out and keeping quiet for a while. No worries. Nothing bad has happened. No serious turmoil to report. A few down days but that comes with the territory, especially with me. As I’ve stated before, my current situation is way too hard for me to swallow. I have been getting out of the house. Not as…

Lent 2012: Letting Go & Building Confidence

For those of you that do not know, I am a confirmed Catholic. After many years of inner struggle and rebellion, I finally committed to this faith, for my own selfish reasons, in April of 2009. You see, I’m drawn to the patron saints. Other aspects of Catholicism I can do without. I call myself an Eclectic Catholic due to…

It’s Not As Easy As I Make It Look

The bus driver that brings me home asks me the same question at least once a week. “Why are you always so happy?” I smile at him and simply tell him that I’m always happy. This is so not the case. People who are always happy 100% of the time, 24/7 are on some kind of drugs. They need to…

I Am An Observer

I love to people watch.  To bear witness to the highs, the lows, and everything in between is a beautiful thing to me.  Especially when either folks don’t know that they are being seen or they just do not care that they are.  Beautiful.  I finally, after a year and a half of living here in DC, made it out…

A Wonderful Lazy Sunday

I had a pretty full week.  Work was about the same…wonderful, fun, and very fulfilling.  ESPECIALLY Saturday.  I got to meet Elmo from Sesame Street!  The ACTUAL Elmo!  Kevin Clash.  Whoo-hoo!  It is SO fun being a photographer! The rest of my week was great.  I chilled with a new friend at a local mexican joint.  It had been a…

A Few Things To Mention

There is tons on my mind. Tons. I am trying to figure out how to sort it all out. All of it is wonderful news and good things. I just need to sort it out. I’ll mention a few…maybe more. I went ahead and purchased a crucial item today from Amazon. This red capsule will be placed in my STEAL…

Looking To Upgrade

For those of you that do not know, I am a photographer. It is a serious passion of mine that I’ve had for years. I currently freelance for other companies but I kind of let my own thing sit on the back burner so I can pursue other things that I believed important at the time. Thankfully I’m shifting back…

A Day In The Life Of…..

  It all started a little before the butt crack of dawn when my alarms (yes that is plural) went off.  An hour and a half later I crawled out of bed and into the shower.  My photo gig was about 20 miles away. I needed to get there pretty early. My day of photographing went very well. On my…

Mmm Soup…On a 90+ Degree Day

I love soup. It gives me that feel good warmth in my tummy and makes everything right again. I accompanied my soup with some Keebler wheat crackers…a wonderful pair. To drink? 24 ounces of nice cool H2O…with free refills. This is the lunch of champions right here. I am feeling a little out of sorts today mainly because of the…

Rants and Raves for Today

  Ok…I’m all about positive vibes and such. I totally believe in whatever I send out I will receive back. That includes any negative vibes that I may have. I have been contemplating posting this for a while now and have always decided against it. I did not want to send out these negative vibes…especially in print. The thing is…

Being Sick Sucks!

I work with children daily. So it was inevitable that I catch their cooties. I am sitting here at my laptop, breathing in through my mouth most of the time, blowing my nose every three minutes, and trying to focus on the task at hand. Yup…pretty much miserable! So my first blog in three weeks is pretty much a little…

Interesting Question!

  So I got asked an interesting question today. The question was “Do you blog?” My answer was “I used to. I stopped when I moved here.” That answer got me to thinking…why did I stop blogging? I was on a roll when I was in the Midwest. I practically had a post everyday. I blogged about sleeping in, surfing…
