So, you blog now?
What was on my mind when I started this blog? I have no idea! At the time I was mad at life. Not in the “woe is me” kind of way. I just found myself focusing on all the little things throughout my day. Mainly at work, since it takes a large percentage of our lives. I remember saying to myself “I hate my job!” As soon as I said that another voice slapped me upside the head. “I don’t hate my job. I love what I do”. I just let all the little things build up to the point that I couldn’t focus on each problem / solution. It was just a big jumble of AHHHH! It was amazing how just after the first few posts my mind was more at ease. I have always known that writing was a kind of self-therapy however never thought that was for me. Besides, it’s not me, it’s everybody else right? Read the rest of this entry »
Zero to hero, Day one: Introduce yourself.
“Who am I an’ wher’ mI at?” (say it in a drunken voice)
Have you ever had one of those “Who am I and where am I at?” moments? There were plenty of those mornings (early mornings) in my 20’s where I have asked that question. This may have been due to the mass quantities of cereal malt beverages that were consumed the night before. With each shot I took, a little closer to the answer of that question. As soon as I was close to the end of the quest, BOOM! There’s the morning. The rudely bright sun shining into the window (of my car) erasing all the progress from the night before. Forced to go through the day preparing to join the quest for the answer. Each day and night teaching me what I already knew. What did I find out then?
- I’m invincible!
- Transferring from the University as a music education major to the “College of Life” was the best decision I could’ve ever made!
- I can stay and up party to 4am and be at work at 7 without a problem.
- Being single, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
- Being in a relationship, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
- Government and politics, boring! (Vote for George Clinton, “funk you very much!”)
- Money, ya I got it! I’ve got 3 major credit cards and 5 store cards that say I do!
Looking back now at 36, what did I learn? Read the rest of this entry »
Me: Thank you for calling Prestissimo Music, how can I help you?
Caller: Yes, hello. My name is Mrs. Ma Non Troppo. My daughter Largo, goes to Canon High School. She plays cello and just got back from solo and ensemble last weekend. She got a blue ribbon! She used to play viola until she fell in love with the sound of the Cello and has played it ever since. My younger daughter Larghetto, goes to D. S. Al fine Middle School. She started playing the violin last year. She took home a red ribbon at solo and ensemble! The both have a concert this week on Thursday at Adagissio Auditorium. I wanted to ask you, what time do you close today?
Me: Six O’clock. Is there anything I may do before you get here that I can help you out with?
Caller: No that’s all I needed to know. Thank you!
Me: Ok… Thank you for calling, have a great day…
Click. (The click was from her. I’ve been taught in sales to always be the last to hang up, just in case there’s that “Oh, one more thing.”)
Welcome to umadyet’s Week in review 03/23/2014
As stated in the title post (found here), I would like to start sharing my views about recent news and events. My vision is to get local news and events from YOU to share here. I am not interested in just regurgitating links to news websites. I am looking for stories that relate to the overall view of my blog. (See my about section here.) I look forward to hearing what you have to share!
