The Roomie Post

So, there’s been a lot of questions about how I’m liking my new living arrangement. This, on top of a lot of surprise that I would even consider living with 5 roommates in one house. Well, after close to two months in the new abode, I would like to go on record as LOVING IT! […]

What’s in your hand?

If we’re honest, I think most of us struggle in the area of confidence. I certainly do. Even if we can put on a good face in front of a crowd, a lack of confidence can be devastating behind the scenes… And what happens behind the scenes ultimately determines our life’s outcome. It’s why¬†comedians commit […]

Shakings and Shiftings

I’m coming up for air. Christmas week came and went with as little time taken off as possible, 3 family celebrations (including two separate, same-day down and back trips to NJ), and ended with a cold/flu thing that had me totally down for the count for the week of New Years.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bran Muffins

Muffins, to me, fall in this strange little sub-category of foods. Truthfully, they are not healthy… but you can put healthy stuff in them so it kind of makes you feel like they are.

Something New

You may have noticed, things look a bit differently around here. As shared recently, there’s been a lot of changes happening these days. Self-employment adventures, turning the corner on a new decade, and now, moving to New Haven (among other things.) So, in honor of all of these changes, I felt like it was time […]

In the process

I’m a big picture person. Details are part of the big picture, and when they are distorting the picture they arrest my notice.

And then came change

A great portion of our lives is made up of the commonplace and mundane. We wake, work, hopefully play a little and go back to sleep. We relate with others, deal with issues, and grow. But every now and then something catapults us into the next stage of life. Maybe it’s a birthday, maybe it’s […]
