A quote from a friend of mine..

Remember, YOU are the product and your LIFE is limited so you only have so much time.  Don’t give it away, make sure you can buy your life back with what people are paying you so that at some point you only do what you like.

Interesting words and a fact!

I enjoy learning new words for things. I’ll be listening to a podcast or watching a show and will hear a new word that I have not heard before.

I carry a pocket notebook with me and usually end up writing down a word that intrigues me.

Later on, I’ll look this word up in the dictionary. Here’s a few that I’ve taken note of and wanted to share with you:

Arduous (ar-du-ous): Meaning difficult to do or great effort to achieve. Such as “This task was very arduous, as it took me a year to complete.”

Nebulous (neb-u-lous): Vague. “The way that he spoke about the topic, was quite nebulous.”

Apropos (ap-ro-po): Opportune, regarding something. To the purpose. To the point. Such as “I enjoyed the apropos writing of this letter.”

Fun facts: Did you know that coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world? Of course, oil is the first. The US had its first coffee house (or coffee shop as they are often called) in 1676, located in Boston. Though, it appears that coffee houses started in the Middle East, in the late 1400’s or early 1500’s. I never realized how long coffee shops had been around for.

What’s your art?

What’s your art?

In my personal opinion or thought process, I feel like we all have a form of art inside of us. That could be anywhere from being excellent at customer service and going the extra mile, to being a podcaster, to teaching a class full of young minds, to being a painter, to being that awesome coffee barista that everyone loves — or heck, even that accountant that rocks those numbers like nobody’s business. The list goes on. What’s your art? Have you found it yet?


Between me, you and the fence post..

So, hey! I have an official blog that doesn't require a lot of maintaining, per se.

Hello.... is this thing on?

Thanks for stopping by and reading my rambles. I talk too much, at least on paper or in this case, via the computer.

You'll find random items here, as well as my writings and whatever else I decide to post. As in reality, I'm trying to figure out what to share. This is somewhat new to me to do more in a better fashion. I am hoping it'll encourage a better writing habit for me as well.

I hope you have a great day!

-Until next time
