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

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

2018 in Review

I thought for sure I had done one of these year in review posts at the end of 2017. In fact, I thought I'd done something similar every year on this blog. But that's not the case. No, I only did a year in review post at the end of 2016. When I looked back … Continue reading 2018 in Review

What’s Old Is New Again

I'm back y'all. Did you miss me? Don't answer that. I'd like to just assume that you did and that you've clicked on this post because you have seen sitting by your computer for weeks just waiting for new content from your friendly neighborhood Single Guy.

Question of the Week #141

Would you accept a guaranteed, lifetime allowance of $50,000 per year (adjusted annually for inflation) if accepting it meant that you could never again earn money from either work or investments? No brainer. Absolutely, I would. Even if it wasn't adjusted annually for inflation, I'd do it. It's not that I don't enjoy work or … Continue reading Question of the Week #141

A Year Ago…

It was one year ago today that I announced on this blog that I would be leaving the world of school counseling to join my church staff on a full-time basis. I was super excited about the opportunity that had been presented to me. One year later, I'm no less excited about what I'm doing … Continue reading A Year Ago…

I’ve Been Busy

I hate that excuse. Everyone's busy. And it's a horrible thing to say when someone asks how you're doing. "Busy..." How long has it been since I've written something on this blog that wasn't a Question of the Week, an AFI movie review, or a Buffy related post? No, really... I'm asking. It feels like … Continue reading I’ve Been Busy

Hopes, Dreams, and Plans

It's funny... the things we choose to look back on. Some of those things, we look back on not because of choice, but because of coincidence. I was thinking about what sort of blog post I'd like to write for Thanksgiving this year and, in thinking about that, decided to look back and see what … Continue reading Hopes, Dreams, and Plans
