Just As I Am

Just As I Am

“Just as I am, without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bid’st me come to thee, oh lamb of God I come. I come!” To many, these words are just lyrics to a song that they are forced to sing every Sunday at church. And, to...
Surprised at Work

Surprised at Work

Last week I decided to take a day off work. It was scheduled, it was pre-planned. It wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment thing. I planned to take the day, get some packing done, relax a little bit, and just take some time away from the day-to-day routine. Well, that...
What it’s like to deal with OCD

What it’s like to deal with OCD

A lot of people don’t understand OCD, what it’s like, or how it affects those who actually deal with it on a daily basis. People think they’re weird, strange, odd.. insert your favorite derogatory term here. Why? Because people with OCD do strange, odd or weird...
Oh Monday, How I Hate Thee

Oh Monday, How I Hate Thee

Today started off as most other good days do, with me being woken up by my phone ringing and a friendly voice on the other end saying “Good Morning.” That, though, was when it all started. See, the next words I heard were “What are you still doing...
Here we go again

Here we go again

  As you know, over a year ago I started my new journey. I moved out on my own, went through a divorce, had to learn a LOT about life, learned to conquer my fears (at least some of them..there’s still the issue with those aliens under my bed), gave up...
Timing is Everything

Timing is Everything

I’ve recently begun thinking about a career path. I’ve decided that I love my job, and don’t see myself anywhere else. At least right now. Who knows what the future will bring. The company has stuff going on all over the world, and one day I may just...
Daily Dose of Ugh

Daily Dose of Ugh

  Sometimes life loves to throw in a little plot twist. Sometimes, it likes to throw in more than one. And sometimes, it just throws a whole bunch of crap at you all at once, expects you to deal with it all, and somehow stay sane in the process. That’s where...
One Month Later

One Month Later

  Ok, so it’s been a little while since I’ve posted. I’ve been busy – trying to adjust to the new job, trying to get rid of the zombie ebola virus (or COPD some-crap-or-other if you believe the doctor who spent a whole 2 minutes with a...
I survived Day One..and All I Got Was This Stupid T-Shirt

I survived Day One..and All I Got Was This Stupid T-Shirt

  Okay, so I didn’t get a T-shirt, but D-Day is done. I survived. A couple hours before I left to go, I started freaking out, hyperventilating, and basically having a panic attack. It was insane. I talked to my best friend, who just kept telling me to breathe. I...
Last Day of Freedom

Last Day of Freedom

  Tomorrow is the big day. It’s the day that things start to change. It’s the day that I accept my fate as a “slave of the corporate machine” and submit to my overlords. The first day of work (ok, training) for my new job working for “Da...
