Paying it Forward

After thinking about it I decided that I wanted to “pay it forward” with the Amex Gift card that I got at work yesterday. The thing about being a Product Manager is that you have team of people that work on projects with you, there is no way the project would have been completed in…

Thank you are really easy words to say.

Today was a crazy day. Not good, not bad, Just crazy. In the morning, it was like I had a revolving door at my office only I don’t have an office I have a cube. The afternoon was a series of interesting but also overwhelming meetings. Overwhelming in the sense of, “I love all these…

Decorations and holiday pampering

Today was all about Christmas. I went to the mall and saw the longest line I have ever seen for Santa. It was wrapped allt he way through Santa’s village and was half way down the hall to the anchor store in the mall. It really was crazy, but surprisingly enough not too many screaming…
