Spring Has Finally Arrive (Or Why I’m Dancing Today)

Today is the first warm day we’ve had since March roared in. When I took Dexter outside this morning, the temperature was already 55° and the high today is supposed to be a glorious 78°! Whee!

Since the weather is finally cooperating (thanks Mother Nature!), I feel like dancing. And one of my favorite dance music artists is Justin Timberlake.

Even better is the title of this song: Can’t Stop The Feeling!

[SoundCloud would only let me share a preview. But I hope it’s enough to get your foot tappin’.]

I hope you are having a great day. And if you’re not, put on some happy tunes and just dance until you feel it.

The Naming of Things

You might have noticed that I tend to name inanimate objects. I have previously mentioned Frank, my FitbBit, in this post, and in this other post, I mentioned George, my beloved iMac, Sunny the wireless router (the network’s name is actually Sunnydale2Neptune – bonus points if you get the references), and Wilberforce, my work laptop (he’s a PC, not a Mac).

Up until recently, I never used their names in front of anyone. I thought I was weird (which is true) and felt that other people probably wouldn’t understand. I mean, hey, I know I’m quirky. I have a hard enough time finding people who truly “get” me, so I didn’t want to add to the challenge.

So for years, I simply called my things by name in the privacy of my own home (or car). Continue reading

Over Categorizing (Or Why Toy Companies Should Ditch Gender Labels)

I love to organize and categorize. I routinely organize my collections of my books, music, and coin collection. I have categorized my books by genre, color, alphabetically (by title or author, sometimes both). I get giddy at organizing. I cannot go into the Container Store unsupervised—it’s worse than me going unsupervised into a bookstore.

So I am all for organizing by category. Categorizing items makes finding them easier. But I can tell you that there is such a thing as over-categorizing.

Shocking, I know. But here’s what set me off on the over-categorization. Continue reading

A Crazy Step-Filled Week

This has been a rather crazy week. It was Monday, then I turned around and it’s Friday already.

Happy Friday!

As a result, I have slacked on posting this week. I could blame part of that on work. But while I may have been a bit busier than normal, that doesn’t excuse evenings and early morning writing.

What really happened was FitBit. More specifically, a FitBit workweek hustle challenge. Continue reading

How I Ended Up Here (or Starting Down One Path), Part 2

Last week I told part 1 of my journey. What I didn’t write was that I had already started down a path. A path I would eventually diverge from, which would lead me to where I am now. But at this point in the story, I am in my mid-twenties. I just finished the M.B.A. program and began walking down a path that

But at this point in the story, I am in my mid-twenties. I just finished the M.B.A. program and had already begun walking down a path that would take me to corporate America. Continue reading
