One Month

It's been a month since I published a blog post. The last posts I wrote I was desperately trying to not fail NaNoBloPomo. Unfortunately, with 10 days left, I bailed on the month long writing challenge. A very busy weekend led to a couple missed posts which led to me dropping the project completely. And...

Taking up a Challenge

I was so stuck on an idea for a blog post today that I seriously considered quitting Nablopomo. Yes, with only 12 out of the 30 posts left to write (definitely over half way done) I was going to let a lack of ideas stop me. Well, that's not entirely true. I have plenty of... Continue Reading →

November NerdBlock

Ideally I would like this post to be a "things I like on pinterest right now" but maybe eventually I'll work... Continue Reading →

Retail Who

As you may have gathered from some of my previous posts, as of the end of October I am back working in retail. I work at a ladies clothing store. It's the same company and manager I've worked with in the past but a new location (which I am enjoying). One of my tasks today... Continue Reading →

Taking Applications?

I work in retail. I did ballet for 10 years. Some days I wish I could fire my feet and hire new ones. I mean seriously. Though my feet technically do everything in the job description: stand, walk, balance etc. They no longer do the job all that well and they¬†definitely do not work well... Continue Reading →
