No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…

Absurd

I could air grievances based on the random absurdities I constantly find my life bombarded with. It would be cathartic. But I don’t know if that’s the right way to do things. So what if I just take a look at myself and examine my own expectations and actions. What is it that I bring … Continue reading Absurd

Pretending to Care

Disclaimer: This post is going to come across as extremely negative. Now, I never claim to be the most positive cynic in the world, but I'm going full dark side here. And while I generally try to keep the language G or PG rated, that may go out the window in this post as well. … Continue reading Pretending to Care

How to Tell if You’re Working for the Right Company

I'm gonna say some good things about the people for whom I work. However, thinking about the nature of my job, I really can't mention my company by name, but I want to make it clear that I have been really blessed to have fallen into the right place when I began this job back … Continue reading How to Tell if You’re Working for the Right Company

The Things About Which I Cannot Write

Y'all... The nature of my career is such that there is a lot that happens that I really can't divulge. You know... because of confidentiality. But there's so much that happens that I want to write about! And it tears me up inside. It was so easy when I worked for the bank. I could … Continue reading The Things About Which I Cannot Write

I don't work in the school I was in for over a year anymore. In fact, I don't work in any school anymore. Therefore, I feel like it's safe to share this story. It's all about the morning announcements... You probably knew that. Because of the title. I have got to learn to be more ambiguous. … Continue reading Morning Announcements

That Line from Office Space

I always feel funny starting off a blog post by saying, "Can I be honest?" Of course I can be honest. It's my blog. I could lie if I wanted to and no one would know the difference. But I'm not gonna lie. I'm going to admit that I'm pretty sure I'm dealing with a … Continue reading That Line from Office Space

Upheaval

Things are in flux. I guess they have been for a while now. And by things, I mean my work life. I only recently celebrated my first anniversary being back in the position of Therapeutic Day Treatment Counselor with a company that I had previously worked for, prior to my time on staff with my … Continue reading Upheaval

It’s Been a Year Already?

As of yesterday, I have officially been back in the world of Therapeutic Day Treatment Counseling for a year. I almost can't believe it's been a year. Then again, when you combine the past year with the experience I had on this career path previously, I almost can't believe it hasn't been a decade. I'll be … Continue reading It’s Been a Year Already?

Work Ethic

What does it mean to have a good work ethic? Does it mean that, no matter the circumstances, come hell or high water, you are gung-ho about punching in and doing your job? Does it mean that you’ve set goals for yourself and your life and you’re willing to do what it takes to achieve … Continue reading Work Ethic
