Social Experimentation in the Workplace

Working in college administration is certainly rewarding and can even be fun sometimes. Sometimes.  I am the college Registrar, meaning I am responsible for creating student schedules, handling transcripts, and several other things that would bore you to tears. I am probably one of the least liked people on staff due to my job requirements…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

Challenge: Today! This week’s theme is a bit different (but you like that, don’t you?) – it’s about TODAY. This day. The day you’re reading and reacting to this post. Get your camera out, right now, and snap a picture to share with everyone!  Sometimes I have a hard time getting through the day without a…

There are some people in life that are miserable, and are therefore miserable people to be around.

Random Thoughts on a Monday Afternoon

If you keep calling it…

Quit Yer Whinin’

I have had it. I am so tired of listening to people constantly complain about work, school, the weather, politics, their significant other, or any of the other issues that are apparently causing extreme and debilitating unhappiness. Yes, I realize the irony of this post, as I am complaining about people who complain. Don’t care.…
