Am I a Hater?

I recently added a former co-worker to my friend’s list on Facebook.  The trouble with that is, you never know what kind of a poster they are.  Are they going to bomb your page with the latest scores of their stupid online game?  Is every single one of their posts going to be about how …

Does That Make Me a Bad Mom?

For those of you who haven’t been following me long, my 16-year-old daughter decided to live with her father this year. At first, I was heartbroken.  My little girl was leaving me.  Then I was devastated.  What had I done that was so horrible that she’d rather live with her abusive father than me?  Next, …

The Past

Okay.  I admit it.  I close my eyes to a lot of things going on around me.  Ignorance is bliss.  Truthfully.  I acknowledge and embrace that.  I don’t watch the news, I don’t read the newspaper, and in general, I’m blissfully unaware of world events. Sure, sometimes I regret it.  I hear all of these …

Was It Cheating?

In school, we’re given tests.  Most of the time, we’re given material to study so we will be better prepared for the tests.  We must know the correct spelling of words in the current unit, which equations to use in our math test, and that it was Columbus who discovered The New World. We aren’t …

Tests are STUPID!!!

Oh, don’t get me wrong – I’m not upset because I failed.  In truth, I passed with flying colors.  I did so well, in fact, that they invited me to come back tomorrow to take the next level of tests (both my speed and my score were far above average). Oops.  Getting ahead of myself …

I HATE Texting!!!

So, I now pay for texting.  Why?  Because that’s how people communicate. It’s not how I communicate.  Truthfully, I HATE texting!  Why?  Because it’s so bloody slow!  I mean, if I want to have a conversation with someone, talking on the phone is much faster.  Instant message is faster.  Chat is faster.  Granted, e-mail and …

Which is Worse?

So, I’ve chopped my book in half.  It was way too long (more than twice too long) and it can very easily be turned into two books (each at a more realistic length).  I’ve actually read that publishers won’t even look at something that’s too long.  So, instead of chopping out most of the book, …

You’re Fired!

For the first time in my life, I’ve been fired!  Why?  For doing exactly what my boss told me to do and for having scruples. Huh.  This sucks! I’ve had the job for exactly a week.  At the end of last week, my boss told me to speak my mind.  Of course, I never would …
