Halloween can mean a lot of different things to many people, but to me Halloween is the time of year where we can take a break from being ourselves. For one night (or a few nights if you’re a multi-day celebrator) you can be someone else (or something else). Besides giving into my sweet … More What I like about Halloween Time
In a previous post I’ve mentioned one of my favorite quotes from The Office. It was the last season and Andy Bernard stated, “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” That quote stuck with me since the very first time I heard … More When the Good Old Days are Behind You . . .

If a day comes to an end and I haven’t done what I “suppose” to do I panic and try to hurry up and rush through it before the day ends. The whole process kind of reminds … More The downside of maintaining Streaks (Break it!)
