today I am a flamingo

Yesterday I went on a bike ride.  My rides are not short circles.  My bike rides are endless miles covering the entire city and then some.  Well long story short, I'm pretty sun burnt and it HURTS LOL.  So I sit here, in pain, just buying my time until I have to go to work.  Wish me luck.

all great things must come to a close

At the beginning of last summer I took a job offer.  This job offer led me to explore a whole new world.  Or at least opened my eyes to the other side of the one we reside in.  Oh the joys of banking! Anyways, I've had a wonderful time overall but i seem to be getting more emotional as my last day comes ever closer.  Like any job, it’s been an interesting mix of good and bad.  I’ve met so many cool people while simultaneously meeting people that I could forget ever existed.  Sometimes I have to wonder how people can think a certain way.  But anyways, there have been a lot of positives that have stemmed from this little experiment of mine.  I was able to gain a lot of communication skills that I once did not possess.  I became more comfortable with myself as I gave countless presentations to the youth.  I did any and everything in my power to be the best me.  Well at least in the eyes of the customers.  You learn to put on a fake smile in customer service.  You learn to express feelings that aren’t there.  I believe those who work with people, become great actors and actresses.  They do it all.  And so when someone leaves a job, no matter the reason they are overwhelmed with emotions because as soon as you change jobs you begin a new chapter.  You see all new faces, all new problems and complaints.  You see the good and the bad and you power through your day like it doesn’t faze you.  And so with this in mind I bid this chapter goodbye in return for a new one.  Now whether it is better or not is still up in the air.  Only time will tell J

so it's been awhile

I've noticed that's it's been quite a few months since I last updated this blog.  This has been a project that has failed emencly.  Not from any reason other than myself.  I have spent the last few months slacking and not that I have a free moment I have decided to revive this page, or maybe make a new blog.  I'm thinking about starting a poetry oriented one.  who would want to see one of those? :)
