This is my 101st post! Woohoo! To mark this milestone, I plan to not only listen to the Depeche Mode album of the same name, but I also joined the Day Zero Project. According to the website, “Day Zero is a place to record your goals, discover new challenges, and gain motivation to achieve them.” In other words, I created a list of 101 things I want to do in the next 1,001 days. Because as we already know, I am clearly insane. (many thanks to my friend Stoopmama for the inspiration! The Day Zero Project inspiration, not the insanity inspiration.

I will take it. Continue reading
Time flies. Seriously! Although I find myself with a much lighter workload, I feel like I am busier than ever. I am constantly amazed when I look at the clock to find that it’s 6 or 7 p.m. What fills my time?? I am not reading books or magazines, watching movies, or playing videos games (as I have wanted to do ever since giving my notice back in early December).
