Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I actually dressed up. What surprised me was the fact that I needed to buy new dress pants, especially since I am in the job market. I kept having to hike them up, as they continued to creep down d... Read more
Like the ELO song, Don't Bring Me Down ( https://youtu.be/z9nkzaO PP6g ).

I've done a ton of walking the past two days. My back feels fine, but my ankles are paying the price. However, I have learned that if you wrap an ice pack around your ankle for 15 minutes, it works wonders! Ok, so an Epsom soak helps, too, but t... Read more
Have you ever found yourself in a place where everything just seems "off"? That's where I am right now, and I'm not sure how I got here. I'm not actually working right now. Just doing odd jobs, but they have me so overwhelmed that I am so lost, ... Read more
