Blog Awards Series #6/Improv #17: They Say It’s Your Blog Award

ADHD is known for "all or none" thinking, which also translates to "out of sight/out of mind." It's basically the reason our infamous desk piles are productive for us. If we put something away in a "safe spot," we're guaranteed never to look at it again! The right amount of color in an organization scheme … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #6/Improv #17: They Say It’s Your Blog Award

Blog Awards Series #5: B is for Blog Awards

I am not saying "B is for Bedbugs," because supposedly things are "happening" with that. The home is hiring a new exterminator to come tomorrow and - again supposedly - is going to deal with the code violations that resulted in the scary green notice. I'm not sure how much faith I have in either … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #5: B is for Blog Awards

Blog Awards Series #4: Mamas, Don’t Let Your Blogs Grow Up to Be About Cowboys

Anyone who ever thinks that the ADHD brain can be turned off has never had to deal with one while blind for a week. The days of wearing an eye mask on doctor's orders did help me get more sleep than normal. It's logical to fall asleep when it's dark all the time anyway, but … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #4: Mamas, Don’t Let Your Blogs Grow Up to Be About Cowboys

Blog Awards Series #3/Messages in a Bottle #7.1: 525,600 Moments of Blog Awards

Today's Questions are courtesy of Ease the Ride. They are both the hardest questions and the easiest questions to answer of all the blog awards, because there are really only three of them, and I had previously written a blogiversary post that, in theory, should have answered all of them. It was the post I … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #3/Messages in a Bottle #7.1: 525,600 Moments of Blog Awards

Blog Awards Series #2: Veteran of the Blog Awards

Back in college, I was an RPG gamer. I didn't actually start with D&D, though. I started with a few more "freeform" type systems where I could create my character with all sorts of attributes that don't fit into the standard D&D class system. I'll be honest, D&D felt kind of limited after having freeform … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #2: Veteran of the Blog Awards

Blog Awards Series #1: The Internet is for Blog Awards

We could alternately title this post "What Do You Do with a Degree in STEM on Not FMLA?" I have never seen Avenue Q. This, in and of itself, is not that unusual, even for someone who likes musicals. I've never seen Hamilton, and that boils down to nothing more than the fact that even … Continue reading Blog Awards Series #1: The Internet is for Blog Awards

Balanced Scorecard

As told by Eckhart Tolle, a Buddhist master named Ram Dass once stated, "If you think you are enlightened, go and spend a week with your parents." I'll be honest, I wasn't super enthused with Eckhart Tolle's books in general, but I did like that quote. It appears to be a common enough occurrence that … Continue reading Balanced Scorecard

Blogmas 2017 Christmas Tag

Happy Holidays! This is not a blog award post, per se, but the tag is the closest I can currently conceive to categorize it among similar get-to-know-you type posts. A Christmas tag is naturally limited in time to reply, so I will apologize in advance to one of the bloggers I tagged in this post … Continue reading Blogmas 2017 Christmas Tag

Real Neat Blog Award

The awesome social justice warrior petrel41 of Dear Kitty. Some blog nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award! (I probably don't technically need to link back to the original nomination post itself after linking to the blog. All the relevant information and my answers, new questions and nominees are below. The bully-in-my-brain feels that if I don't … Continue reading Real Neat Blog Award
