To Coddle or Not to Coddle
This past weekend I went to volunteer at an event in our downtown area feeding the homeless and giving free items away. It was a great experience and I love doing it. I am a people person of sorts; I don’t care how much money you have or don’t have. So, to me, it was good to be down there giving to others who may very well not have it unless it was given to them. Here is my conundrum. When I was talking to friends about bringing their family and volunteering their time as well the answer was quickly, no.
Dating in the Office…
As you might imagine a customer service position would not be a very stressful job. This would be especially true if the position was completely online, with no phone communication involvement. This is my job. This is my life. My main source of “bread-and-butter” comes from working in a cubicle and answering emails all day long. No stress or drama, right? Wrong!
Heat is Here to Stay...
Living in Texas in the summer is no joke. It literally feels like it gets hotter every single year. This week alone we are just at the beginning of July and it hit 105° today. My husband and I are very diligent in making certain that the cooling system and our apartment are not overwhelmed or turned on full blast 24 hours a day. When he leaves for work he turns it up so it gets a break and then when I come home from work I turn it down so it begins to cool off. We have learned not to turn it off completely because then it takes too much power to come back on and completely cool off the house. Alternating the temperature up and down seems to give it a break and it gives our bank account a break when the bill comes!
Surviving Foster Care
I am not in the business of fooling myself. For years I have always been the “misfit friend” of the bunch. That is if I was even in a bunch. Friends did not come easy for me. Heck, family did not come easy for me. So, the people that I chose to be around were just that, chosen. I don’t think that any of them realized how much stock I put into that relationship with them. But I knew and that is all that mattered.
Delivering Bad News…
Not sure how I got the title of the ‘Official Bad News Deliverer’ in my friends’ group; but I digress… it is inevitable when there is bad news to be delivered, I am the one who is called upon to do it. I do not think it is because I am patient, because I am not. It is surely not because I do not cry when others cry, because my eyes have a mind of their own when it comes to tears. And it is certainly not because I can distance myself from the news itself, nope…I internalize everything! Maybe it is in the delivery. Maybe that is it. I am nowhere near perfect, but I can deliver news well.
My New Neighbors;
So, as does most of society, we live in an apartment complex. And as with any apartment complex living, the neighbors change on a regular basis. Especially in this day and age where prices are going up so high not all families can continue to stay put. Well, the new neighbors that are moving across the hall from us are a very elderly couple. They have been living in this complex for over 15 years, from what I understand.
Bad Mood Vs Good Mood…
There are a multitude of things in life that we, as society, just cannot ignore. I have heard it referenced to as: death, taxes, and humanity. These are three basics that no human can avoid. However, we need to add a fourth to this list, moods. We cannot ignore our good moods versus our bad moods. Let’s face it; we all have swing from both sides of the mood pendulum from time to time.
National PTSD Awareness Month
Being a writer; I have a driven curiosity to research. When I started researching the month of June I quickly found that it is dedicated to National PTSD Awareness Month. Let me begin by saying I had no idea that there was an entire month dedicated to this illness. So the research alone was fascinating for me. There is an actual day dedicated to individuals that suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD);, and that is June 27.
A Good Person…
It seems as though society is forever trying to improve themselves or prove themselves. Whichever the case may be, how do you do it? The majority of the people that exist in this world think they are good people but are they really? Are there specific traits that are related to being a good person within this world? As with everything else; of course, there is. Here are a few traits that seem to be the most popular among being a truly good person.
Lack of Motivation
People claim to have motivation all the time, but do they really. Do you? Do I? Not nearly as much as I should! By the time I do things it is because I have to, not because I want to. There is a huge difference between the two. When you are in the midst of losing your motivation there are certain things that you can do to regain it. Some people say it is as easy as changing your routine, getting up and cleaning your house, or even just going to a park to relax and watch people. All of those may very well be options that work, for other people. But in all honesty, those options have not worked for me.
Writing a Solid Foodie Review
I am a Foodie at heart, so reviewing eateries is an extreme passion of mine. I love doing an honest and complete review to accomplish one of two things; leading customers to great places or steer them from the ones that may be potential disasters. However, there is a fine line between being informative and being overly informational. The last thing you want to do in any type of review is seem bossy or directive in a negative manner.
How many times do you utter “I’m Sorry” in a typical day? If you track it, then I am sure you would be astonished at the end results. Especially in the workplace! Far to often people think that they need to apologize to smooth something over at work to keep in the ‘good graces’ or to simply stay on the payroll. Some people may very well feel less professional if they need to apologize often; but whose fault is that? There is such a thing as compulsive apologizing.
