Skillshare (not sponsored)

I've recently started a two month trail of Skillshare an online learning platform that provides educational videos on a variety of subjects. Now keep in mind none of the courses are accredited but they are taught by knowledgeable people. I joined on a whim through author Jenna Moreci who partnered with Skillshare to offer two…

Learning self-care

I know I said I was posting once a week but I felt this needed to be said.   This week has been long with the departure of three of my co-workers and the training of two others. I've worked seven days straight and the last three clocked 30 hours, I was going to work…

Beating a Dead Horse

Relax it's a metaphor, I'm not actually beating a horse dead or otherwise. It's a colorful, if a bit graphic metaphor for something I've been coming back around to and leaving for about a year now. It's my blog I have not been consistent with updating it, nor promoting. I've been a bad blogger parent…

Coffee and work

Coffee it's a damn good thing, liquid sunshine in a cup basically. I like the taste of it and how it slowly wakes me. It helps me deal with demanding customers, annoying coworkers and all the trails my soul is put through in this retail setting. Until that bestseller I'm writing comes through for me,…

Writing and Me

My love of writing is transparent, I've made post after post about it. It's my dream job, I would love to wake up and spend the day writing. Writing though takes free time and getting that with everything going on right now is hard, I can't pull all nighters or stay up till 3 am…

Adult Responsibilities

There are many things as adults we have to deal with,  one of those things is moving. Our lease is up at our apartment in September and we've chosen not to renew for many reasons so now begins the hunt for another apartment and movers who will do a good job (too many irreplaceable things…

Never discuss writing

I made a big mistake yesterday, I dared discuss a story I'm working on with a coworker who I thought would be safe to discuss it with. I was wrong, our conversation went exactly like I should have expected. Coworker: You Write?' My dumbass: Yeah, I'm working on a story right now. Coworker: Cool, I…

The Chance

In November I have the opportunity to meet my inspiration for the project I am working on. The brilliant mind behind the very thing that has become my personal obsession.  Do I it? I have everything planned even what I'm going to wear, but (and it's a big one) he has never really talked about…

Blessed by a curse

There are a lot of things that come with being a writer, that creative mind that over thinks everything can get the best of you. It has me, I recently posted about a project I am working on. I have been trying hard not to get too caught up in it, but that has not…

So much to say

I haven't blogged in I'd say about two weeks maybe longer, I haven't felt the drive to with work and everyday life getting the best of me it's been a struggle. This happens a lot unfortunately but I always come back. There's a lot I have to write about I could easily fill three pages…
