I Desire to Desire

There are eight posts stored in my draft box, and I have no intentions on finishing any of them.  My inspiration has run dry, much like my sex drive.  I can live with temporary writer’s block; however, I can no longer live with a lack of sexual desire.  For the past six years, I have…

Messy Mind Trip

It’s an ordinary Thursday morning; I have nothing unusual planned for the day.  No big meetings; nothing pressing to do at work, yet, today, I woke up to a messy mind.  This is what I call it when my brain is overloaded with thoughts that I can’t quiet.  These are the days when my meds…

I Raced Myself, and I won!

A sea of red could be seen for miles across our city on Sunday morning.  On your mark, get set, go…. and we were off.  Thousands of bodies trying to cross the start line; eager racers jetting to the side in an attempt to pick up pace.  Slowly the mass begins to separate as each…

Do Bloggers Lie?

In February, I started my blog as it was a requirement of one of my university courses.  Ever since, I have been following and reading as many blog posts as I can fit.  Today, I was reading a blog that claimed bloggers often lie.  I have not once pondered the idea that the posts I…

A Storm To Remember

Anyone who was a fan of Prince was shocked by the news of his death yesterday.  I was writing out an incident report at work when I received a text message from a friend informing me of his passing.  The morning started out promising with clear skies and sun; but clouds rolled in sometime around…

Office Snacks

About once a month, a girl from our office makes a trip to costco and stocks up on office snacks.  She is a lovely lady, but she goes a little overboard on the snacking items.  She buys over $1000 worth of snacks a month, and then she hoards them in her office.   In her tiny 8…

Does the Tortoise Really Always Win?

  Most people have heard the popular store of the Tortoise and the Hare.  The story is about a race between a slow and steady tortoise and a speedy careless hare.  The hare is so sure he will win the race because he is so fast.  In the end his cockiness loses him the race.  I have always…

What Would It Be Like If…

Sometimes you just have to wonder what if. Five days a week I sit at my desk and listen to the flicker of the fluorescent lights above me, as I count the minutes down before quitting time.  I wade through endless emails, type reports, and sit through long drawn-out meetings.  This is my life as…

The Complexity of Love

Friends, family, lovers, strangers, acquaintances, co-worker etc… we all have a variety of human relationships that occupy our lives.  Recently, I have been overly observant of the connection between lovers.  Not my own connections, although I have definitely taken time to reflected on my own previous lost loves.  My observations are of the powerful affect that love…

A Little Bit Of Crazy

Why is it when part of your life gets hectic, the other parts follow suit?  My job is like a roller coaster ride: I can go weeks with nothing too exciting happen, and then next thing you know I’m up to my A*S in work place incidents, layoffs, terminations, hiring projects, policy implementations etc.  One minute,…

I’m a Quitter

Everything is a blur today.  I woke up feeling ok; went for my run; showered and came to work.  Since 7:30am until right now (11:00am), everything feels wrong.  I feel wrong; the world feels wrong, and it’s all because I QUIT nicorette at 7:00pm last night.  I quit out of the blue, with no plan in…

I’d Rather Be Blogging

WORK is really getting in the way of my blogging time.  How am I ever going to get to all the posts I want to read with work taking up so much of my time.  Last year was insanely busy for me, but so far this year my office has been pretty quit.  In HR…
