Back before I got started in my current position, I had applied for a job with an exciting local marketing firm. It seemed like a really cool place to work. I could easily imagine myself as a part of their creative team. My days would be spent collaborating with my brilliant colleagues, sipping coffee, having... Continue Reading →
You cannot wait for the Universe to pluck you out of obscurity and say, "this one. I pick this one. This one’s special." Trust me. Tried it. It doesn’t work.
Everyone’s storm story is different, and hell, I’m home now on the EIGHTH DAY, so I may as well tell you ours. Oh, and I’ll try to throw in a few pictures along the way!
