The Reappearance of Me

Can’t believe it’s been over a week since I last posted. I hadn’t really thought about it until I read Kristen’s Wednesday post, Frankenfriends & Zombie Tweets. It’s basically about writers who are there one minute on social media and gone the next. And then back again. While I didn’t think I was one of […]

Freedom!

Today, most people are off from work, but not me and I’m totally okay with that. Why you ask? Because today marks the first day I’m working ONE JOB. Since December, I’ve worked a minimum of seventy hours a week and most weeks more. I basically had two full time jobs and let me tell […]
