Hello, There! How's it going? Today was really strange. Strange in a way where you just want to throw a blanket over your head, unplug the alarm clock, and not even get out of bed. The storm this morning, also known as a brief monsoon, came crashing at my windows but I had… Continue reading It’s About Progress, Not Perfection

I am at the point in my life where I have to wonder if there isn't more out there than what I'm doing. At one point, I thought the sought after thing to do was gain full time employment. The truth is this: I am fortunate and blessed to have a full time job but I'm finding in the corporate world that sometimes that means you have to be a sell-out.

Its going to be an interesting journey......
