Please Read The Instructions….

This week’s prompt has turned into a bit of a rant, so I’ll try and keep it short. I’ve had a rough week with customers not doing the one thing I need them to do – read the instructions.  A large part of my job in IT  is providing answers to questions or how to documents that are regularly […]

I haven’t thought about the first time I got drunk in ages! Pretty much since my ten year high school reunion when someone brought it up because they were still a little annoyed at me.

My Biggest Roadblock is Myself

My Biggest Roadblock is Myself

It’s a big thing to say – that you are your own roadblock, getting in your own way. But I am. More specifically not speaking up in a professional context. I’m terrified that an employer will be angry with me for admitting that I need more stimulation or that something isn’t working.  I usually just silently […]
