No, really I don’t. I have no idea why people make things so difficult. Just do what has to be done and leave the extra baggage on the side of the road. What happened was, I wanted to change something. Very simple, click clack boom. The person who was supposed to help me change it…… Continue reading I Have No Idea

I love when good things happen unexpectedly. It is often small things that make me happy. A spontaneous hug or kiss from my favorite human can make my day.

Social media is not real life. Look around you, those people you see are real, the world is real, and you are not a meme.

Consider your audience and your reputation. One wrong post can undo years of trust building. Now the…… Continue reading Second Rule of Social Media
