How I Design a Website

So, I didn’t exactly go to school to be a web designer. I have an English degree. There isn’t a whole lot you can do with an English degree. Most people say, “Oh, well at least you have A degree” when I tell them that. I’m totally...

It’s all about the details.

It’s all about the details.

Every December I go through a purging process. It’s about the new year coming, and it’s also about me turning a year older. Ideally, I get it all done before the birthday, but the ultimate goal is the 31st. The entire house must be emptied of junk, clothes...

I’m not a patient person. There I said it. I don’t read directions, and I don’t wait for instructions. I don’t always think before I speak. […]

The Climb

Do you watch Game of Thrones? If you don’t, you should. Even if you haven’t read the books, the show is stellar. In the I-can-hardly-wait-a-week-to-watch-the-next-episode kind […]

I believe in you, whether you believe in yourself or not.

So, I just got back from a trip. A big trip. No, a huge trip. Nine days. Six Countries. Crossed off multiple things on my “places […]

The Saddest Thing in Life Is Wasted Talent

Natural aptitude or skill. Hmmm. There was a time when I was sure I had none of those. I was not right. I do have talents. […]
