As my number of followers slowly creeps up, I thought it might be fun to practice my writing skills with a good old-fashioned game of Taboo (the copyright on this game is nearly as old as I am)! For those of you unfamiliar with the game, they give you a word, and then you are… Continue reading Random Taboo?
I've been trying to write a short story for a little while now, and, its honestly just not happening for me, so instead, I thought I would take a moment to write up a character profile for one of the characters in my novel. Cornelius Cornelius is an older gentleman who looks to be about in his… Continue reading Short Story Saturday
Side note: Grossma is what we called my Great-Grandmother who lived next door. I believe it is some kinda German/English mix dumbed down for little kids, but I don't know. That was her name so just go with it. Dear Grossma, Today is September 17th. It has officially been 18 years since you passed away.… Continue reading A Letter to Grossma
Sometimes I find myself wondering what would happen if I could actually have a conversation with my cat.

To satisfy this craving, when I… Continue reading I don’t know how to Twitter

Sometimes (most of the time) I'm really good at this, and life moves quickly and I am able to keep up. but also, sometimes I become overwhelmed and then the busy schedule just… Continue reading Managing My Stress Levels
Recently I went to Boston for work. While I was walking around the warehouse, I caught a glimpse of this beautiful cliff behind the building (see picture above). While I was admiring it, I asked the warehouse manager about it. "It's new," he said. "When we moved in, there was a hill behind the building,… Continue reading Thoughts from Boston
For work I've been reading this book on Auditing (The ASQ Auditing Handbook, 4th edition, edited by J.P. Russell), and as I was reading through my many notes last night, I stumbled upon this quote: "Variation is inherent, it exists in all things." The idea behind this, at least as it applies to quality, is… Continue reading Variation is Inherent
