Belonging

I'm still trying to settle in to my new job. I started in late October, and it really took awhile to even begin to feel like I was "one of them." I'm still paranoid about everything I do.

Non-conformist Introvert

  This is so much on my mind right now. As some know, I was laid off from my job back in March. I took it pretty well, this being the third time now I’ve been through this. I knew the struggle to find a new job awaited me, but deep down inside somewhere I… Continue reading Non-conformist Introvert

My WordPress-iversary

Wow, I registered with WP 8 years ago. Eight years. Holy smokes. I started with my Wandering Mind blog back then, mostly chronicling my bicycle adventures. That blog has lain dormant for many years now while I've focused on writing and Tarot (on the Dangling Pentacles Tarot blog), which admittedly has been more active recently… Continue reading My WordPress-iversary

... when you feel like the world is kicking your ass You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It’s their mistake, not my failing – Richard P Feynman
