At my last job, after working there for a while, they offered us the chance to go from taking hour lunch breaks to half hour lunch breaks and then getting to leave a half hour early. I was one of the few people who said “No, thank you!” which sort of branded me as being [...]
Call this the clip show of my blog.
Here we have a Dilbert cartoon that completely describes my workplace. It’s hanging up in my cube and it does make me chuckle even though I’ve read it 134 times.
Vulcan Tool Co. is close to my house so one day I decided [...]
Like many girls, I’ve received flowers from boys for special occasions like my birthday, Sweetest Day, etc. However, I realized the other day that the sweetest flowers are the ones I feel I earn after going through the event that takes place on the same week each quarter at my job. I have [...]
Here are some images collected over time of the view from my cubicle.

Libraries are sort of awesome to me. I have fond memories of being little and carrying a teetering pile of books to the check out desk during summer vacations from elementary school and my dad having to help me carry them to the car. When I was old enough to work, I only [...]
I picked up Megan Hustad’s How to Be Useful: a beginner’s guide to not hating work at East Library (my new home library in East Dayton) because they have a lovely business section that actually appeals to someone my age – go figure. Hustad has taken on a mammoth task by condensing [...]
