A Little Bit About Getting Along

As I’m sure you know by now that the 2010 SA Blog Awards are done and dusted.  And I’m sure you also know that there was enough controversy to make the ANC proud.  First, there was the weird way it was initially launched.  Some people had complained that they only found out about it very late.  Personally, I don’t see any other way it couldn’t been done.  Secondly, there was the nomination and voting processes where there were some bugs.  Then, there were judges (possible award winners that didn’t enter) that were dropped at the last second and left...

A Little Something About Happiness

It’s been a long time since I blogged.  And the birthday post doesn’t count.  I mean really blogged.  About raw honesty again.  About how upset this has made me, or how angry that did.  But if I am being honest, it’s because I’m happy.

A Little Bit About My Birthday

So, it’s my birthday again. They seem to happen every year, don’t they?! But I’m feeling great. Last year, I really did have a quarter- (or mid-mid- as I prefer) life crisis. I freaked out. I didn’t know what was going on with anything. But just a year later, and I can actually say I am happy. Sure, there are still things I’m not sure about, but in this drama-free life I’ve adopted, it’s things I know I’ll sort out when I am good and ready. I have had an overwhelming amount of messages today and I really appreciate...
