Let’s Chat over a cup of Coffee
It’s been a while since we last met which was way back in November. Since then I have read a couple of books. One book opened a door of learning to appreciate my coworkers and the other about the benefits of Stress. Usually, I prefer to read fiction like that of fantasy, mystery, sci-fiction, or romance but I’ve found these books on business informative.
Christmas and the Holidays have passed.
Phew! They flew by without incident, and everyone was happy with the gifts they got. I did stay up to watch the ball drop.
Keelaa, our Jackshund, is getting a new kitten.
She has been pretty lonely since her much older sister, Julie, passed away back in October. We were all very sad to say goodbye to our trusted furry friend of 16 years, but she was in a lot of pain. Her death was a relief. I hated seeing her struggle to walk. She was at the point where she needed aid when standing up, and many times she would stumble and fall or slip on the linoleum landing with a big huff. I feared how she would fair, come wintertime. With all the ice and snow, her mobility would’ve been limited. She was a trooper right to the very end.
My Milestone Moment!
May of 2016 I began taking college courses at Franklin Pierce University while keeping my day job. Up until then, I had only wished that I had gone to college and believed that this was just a forgotten dream that would never come true. But yea me, it did!
This week, I completed my Associates Degree in Business Associate. I’m moving on with my Bachelors in Science of Integrated Studies. My coursework will consist of a concentrate of Business and Social Service classes, and I did declare my major as well. I want my MBA of Human Resource Management with SHRM certification.
I should have my bachelor’s degree by September of 2019 and my MBA by 2020-21.
Have I stopped writing?
Not really. Though I have not published anything in a while, I do have several stories I am writing, while my primary goal with them is to improve my writing style making the stories much more professionally written. I like having the control over my written works even though they do not fill my bank account with wads of dollars. I don’t write to make money. Writing is my way of expressing myself, and the goal is to write stories that I would want to read. They may never be as good as Game of Thrones or am I selling myself short? I won’t know until I publish them and you as a reader give me feedback on how much my writing has changed in the past ten to twelve years.
Till we meet again – bottoms up!
