Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

People need to take a few minutes and put on the brakes. We could all benefit from reminding ourselves that we don't all like the same things. Sometimes we feel very strongly about our like, or dislike, of things. When does our like, or dislike, cross a line? I know it might be an opinion, … Continue reading Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

Aaaack…

If you ever read the comic strip Cathy, the title is a total reference.  I get it, completely.  I've begun to look around at the things and people in my life, and the exclamation fits my life to a tee.  Some days I want to throw my hands in the air and scream. I give … Continue reading Aaaack…

The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

Sixth grade!! Magical words, they were, and music to Angry Amy's ears. Junior high was finally here, and she could, at last, participate in a more grown up world. No more recess and tiny desks for her! She would get a locker, and she would get to change clothes for gym class. The last thought … Continue reading The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

The Saga and Drama of Angry Amy…

Once there was a girl named Amy.  Amy was angry, all the time!  She was so angry that people began to call her Angry Amy, and the name stuck like glue.  Angry Amy didn't ever seem to have anything to be happy about, and it seemed doubtful that she had ever liked anything in her … Continue reading The Saga and Drama of Angry Amy…

New Look and Upgrade

I decided to take a step forward and make the plunge with this blog. Make no mistake. This is still a personal page for me, and a spot to elaborate on my personal thought bubbles. I find that I work through things best with my writing. However, in the upcoming weeks and months, I will … Continue reading New Look and Upgrade

Notafinga…

I'm not really angry, but am sure at a loss for words. It doesn't feel good inside to consistently feel misunderstood. It's like there's this me on the inside who is constantly screaming and is never heard...at least not truly. Do I hear it in people's voices when they speak to me? You betcha! The … Continue reading Notafinga…

Please fund MY dream…

We live in an age of "GoFundMe" and "Crowdrise" and other personal fundraising type sites where, literally, people can beg for money for just about anything. Don't misunderstand me, I am a charitable individual, and I have done plenty of fundraising in my day. In fact, I currently fundraise for a non-profit organization that raises … Continue reading Please fund MY dream…

Oh Poor Pathetic Me…Woe…End of the F*ing World…Drama Drama Drama…

Personal truths are great aren't they? That's sarcasm, because personal truths are just that: PERSONAL! I think it's fine and dandy that folks want to "speak their truth". For fuck's sake... that's where some of the world's greatest fiction novels have been born from, from folks who recognized that people would take it as "whining" … Continue reading Oh Poor Pathetic Me…Woe…End of the F*ing World…Drama Drama Drama…

The Conundrum of The Lemming Theory

There's safety in numbers, so I've heard, and so it may seem. Perhaps that's why we, as weak humans, seek others to share our position when it comes to issues we feel unsure about. Yes, there has to be a fair amount of uncertainty and fear, lest one would simply stand on their own two … Continue reading The Conundrum of The Lemming Theory

The Flip side of The Rudeness Equation

I had a customer today who became extremely hostile and rude. I simply don't understand anymore. People consistently complain about service workers being rude to them, but quite often we service workers find ourselves being the brunt of unimaginably rude behavior. Being a manager, I am not about to subject the rest of my employees … Continue reading The Flip side of The Rudeness Equation
