Question of the Week #297

If you knew that devoting yourself to an all-consuming occupation--music, writing, acting, business, politics, or medicine--for 20 years would make you one of the best in the world at it, would you? If so, which would you choose? Absolutely, I would. And of those listed, I'd definitely go with writing. I already love to write … Continue reading Question of the Week #297

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

Better Late Than Never

“You’re fired,” said Heather calmly. She stood behind her desk, leaning on her hands and staring at the scattered papers that lined the surface.

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

Morning Announcements

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
