I made a rather typical comment to a customer service rep today about how I wanted to be a child (or at least a young adult) again…

Where I was wrapped tightly in the security of all that was hearth and home…

Where the responsibilities were those of others, not mine…

Where “work” was something you did to have some spending money for the weekend, not to pay bills with…

Where relationships were only as complicated as who you held hands with, not who you or your partner slept with…

Where you could stay in bed all weekend, yet miraculously your clothes were¬† magically washed, ironed, folded and put away…

Where the social interactions for the day were limited to who you saw at school or perhaps were allowed to talk to for 15 minutes each evening… only after homework was finished, dinner eaten and chores done… not where everyone has smart phones, internet, personal computers, twitter, and facebook accounts…

Where family was tight and friends even tighter sometimes not where cut throat, stabbing someone in the back is the only way to get ahead…

Where you were lucky if you had three channels to watch on the floor model, monstrosity of a family television, not where flat screens grace the walls of most young teens…

Where being young meant being young… where at the end of the day it was as simple as that…

The Girl That…

That is the question… seriously I currently have teal hair, teal glasses and personally think I rock it most days. However I work in a corporate environment where “different” is frowned upon or perhaps not rewarded is the better way to look at it.

Personally, I feel that an employee should be rewarded for their performance not their choice of hair color…

Kick Start…

I have been super crazy with work as of late and within three days have already “clocked” almost 40 hours. Considering the fact that I’m supposed to work today and Friday (at best an additional 16 hours) I’m exhausted. I have been getting to the office no later than 7:30 this week and leaving for home no earlier than 7… add an additional hour each day for commute time and I have approximately worked 42 hours thus far.

I consumed way more Kick Starts and Amps than I should have… at least I made it through the week though.
