I like being organized.  I like lists because they help me stay organized.  Give me a list of tips on how to stay organized and I’m in heaven.

To summarize, it’s easier to be organized when you reduce the amount of stuff you have to organize and you make the steps required for being organized easier.

Friends are replaceable.  Family, is not.

If you lost a family member, you will never be able to fill that void.  All you can do it learn to ignore it and remember them.

That is all you know

Knees to the floor

And away you go


Wide eyed

Reach out to touch

Giggle a little bit

You’re impressed by so much



Who are these others?

Why are we all here

Instead of home with our mothers



Fragile, but developing a core

Understanding, not understood

Get ready, there’s so much more



They’re everything I want to be

They’re so pretty

Why doesn’t everyone like me



I love you

Where do I want to go from here?

What the future holds, you haven’t a clue.



You’re in control of your life

Time to make your own decisions

Take the good with the strife



A job, a home

Maybe someone else is there

Or maybe you are still alone



To the top

Become successful, become a success

And once you do, never stop



Time to your husband or wife

Life to your child, pets, and each other

Love to live your life.



You’ve had your chance

The chance to build the shiny hard word floor

Where you can slow dance


Breath deep

Take in all in and look back

Smile at what you’ve done, at what you’ve been

Forget what you lack



Let your lips come together, and eyes close

What images dance on the back of your eyelids?

Feel no pain, as life says “good bye”, and goes.

Never blindly trust the Best Buy guy.

I’m sorry BestBuy employees who are reading this.  I have personally encountered some of the worst educated “computer guys” at BestBuy, and I’ve heard personal accounts from the likes of my mother and many other friends that are horrific.  I mean, misinformation, poor recommendations, and being just downright wrong.

No one ever goes to their high school career counselor and says, “I want to grow up to be a BestBuy salesman.”  Probably not even, “I want to work at BestBuy.”  Think about that before you start taking their OPINIONS or anything they have to say as having any value or even validity.

Little Things

leaving coupons for people

Kallie told me that she went to the store the other day and someone had left coupons next to a bunch of products through the store.  It wasn’t just the store discounts, but someone must have had a bunch of coupons they were not going to use and took the effort to leave them by all the associated products.  Fun!  I’m sure a bunch of people had smiles on their faces.

Poll the People

Don’t you judge of my composure, ’cause I’m lyin to myself

It’s my birthday.  I’m 29.  One more year to work on my 30×5 list.  I’m curious though, perhaps drawn by being egocentric or even a low-self esteem, how am I doing in life?  Here’s a chance to give me an anonymous pulse check about who I am and maybe even ways to improve.  I certainly don’t want mistreat anyone, but maybe I have.

What is your opinion of Josh?
