I'm in a relationship that I've been in for about 2 months now.  To cut to the chase, I'm worried we moved too fast, too soon.  We'd barely been dating for a month when she rolled over and told me…Continue

Just curious there.  I've read many many things, from every six months to every year or every two years in your 20s.  I'm 24 and the last time I visited the good ol' Doc was in 2011, and we did a…Continue

All good things are wild and free.

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”
--Mark Twain

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear"
--Mark Twain

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
--Mark Twain

Hope and change in 2012.

Posted on November 8, 2012 at 7:32pm 11 Comments

This maybe has nothing to do with anything but as I was laying in bed last night this thought occurred.

Hope and change.  Something we all strive for.  To better ourselves.  Something our president got elected on last time.  Something he just won four more years based on, more than likely.  What's wrong with hope and change?  Why do the republicans and our country as a whole, seem so opposed to it.  Hope and change empowers someone like Barack Obama to run and get elected.  Let's face…

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
