The Twitter Reset

“It’s okay to think about what you want to do until it was time to start doing what you were meant to do.” – Jim Morris Sr. – From “The Rookie”


Several years ago, my friend Andrew finally convinced me to get a twitter account.  I didn’t need one.  Twitter was a fledgling little operation in comparison to today’s behemoth of a social media enterprise.  I wasn’t really interested in finding out about what people were doing every second of the day, and I wasn’t interested in posting the exact same as a response.  But in the end, I was awed by the concept that it was a “micro-blog”, that allowed you to express “what are you doing” 140 characters at a time.  Read more…

Mother’s Day and the new Job.

The new job begins on Tuesday.  Technically it starts Sunday, but because I have Sunday and Monday off, it really begins at noon on Tuesday.  I’ve got some mixed feelings about it actually, but overall I’m happy and excited.  Everyone keeps asking if I’m excited about the new gig, and honestly, I don’t know that excited is the right word.  I’m more feeling a sense of relief that it’s finally happened, and I’m eager to get the new thing underway.  But I’m lacking in excitement over the commute, which I hope will be easy.  Anyway, there is a bunch of e-learnings that I need to take for the new gig, so I’ll get started on those in a bit.
