What’s The Purpose of Having A Purpose?

I’ve worked a variety of jobs over the past 14 years. From retail to corporate desk jobs, gas stations to chain restaurants, I feel like I’ve done my fair share of different jobs. There have been low-paying ones (quite a few of those) and high-paying ones. I’ve had good bosses and terrible ones. I’ve stayedContinue reading “What’s The Purpose of Having A Purpose?”

Step One to Pulling Yourself Out of a Rut

You can’t be on top of the world all the time. Me personally? I spend half of my life at the bottom, trying to climb back up.

I’m not the best at keeping up with my appearance. I do in my own way, but my style is low maintenance. It’s a big deal to me when I take the time and effort to schedule and pay for a haircut. Then there’s the annoyance of where to go. Great clips has burned meContinue reading “[RePlug] Haircuts and Paid Bills”
