I’m not much of a bandwagon jumper, and usually prefer to watch the ride go by. But I jumped all aboard in my last post, and figured hey, why not stay on for a little bit longer – so here I am, at it again.
Amongst all of the negativity and sheer ridiculousness that is so pervasive in social media these days, every once in a while something just a little bit different comes along, like the ‘Seven Day Black and White Photo Challenge”, which really is just as basic as it sounds, and it truly is a small breath of fresh air amongst all of the cyber pollution.

Well, I have been taking a few weeks break from the blogging world for a bit. Have needed to get caught up on some life stuff that I just couldn’t put off anymore. That being said, I have spent the bulk of today going through my newsfeed, trying to get caught up on a little bit of what I have missed over here at good ol’ WordPress.
I’ve had some laughs and giggles, have learned a few things, and have sympathized with a few of you, and am eager for some more of it! But the point of this post is, I came across PennyWilsonWrites and her Meet & Greet post and thought it was a brilliant idea! (And I hope she doesn’t mind I’ve linked to her post) Continue reading “Getting to Know YOU Better”
I have been busy lately. If you’ve read any of my previous posts you already know that I’ve been working at trying to simplify and declutter my home and my life. I’ve done another round of house purging, I’ve finally started (after 3 plus years) decorating, I’ve been working my way through clearing out my closets and I have not been having an easy time with any of it. Through it all the one roadblock I keep coming up against that has made every decision on what to toss, put up, what to keep such a painstaking process is I have no idea what my style is. I have no idea what type of image I want to project, if I have an image at all, if things are age appropriate and what my image says about me and what, if anything, I would even want it to say. And yes, this is one of those girly/first world problems/consumerism type posts. Sometimes it’s just necessary to take a break and head on over to the shallow end of the pool.

I am a huge proponent of the staycation and advocate strongly for living someplace you love and learning where you live. Why bother? Because you spend the majority of your waking hours and life there. Why would you not want to? There is always something new to be discovered, something beautiful to be found, something unique to do, a special tradition or culture in which to immerse yourself, and a history all it’s own just waiting to be discovered no matter where you live.

“Do you need anything?” Not an unusual question to ask a friend when you’re running into the corner store, or to ask of your coworkers when you pop out for a quick visit to the drug mart across the street during a break. However, insofar as this goes, I have developed a bit of a peculiar habit. You see, I always ask, “Do you need anything?”, and then follow up whatever the reply with, “Do you want anything?”. I found myself doing this very thing just last week, by having it pointed out to me by a friend, and have since been thinking over need vs. want. A clichéd topic for sure, but a topic that has become cliché for a reason, and is always worth a mention. Continue reading “Do You Need Anything?”
One of the perks of my particular contract at work is that I have a certain minimum hours per week I need to put in. That hardly sounds like a perk (aside from the guaranteed minimum income), except with a few basic math skills, if you take the amount I am mandated to fulfill, account for one or two shifts working out of town per week, and divvy it up over the work week, it is easy to assess that my hours can be completed within 4 days, as opposed to 5.
