So Clever I Wish I’d Thought It Up First: Quirky

Earlier today I discovered a website that might be my new favorite place to spend time on the Internet: Quirky. If you’re unfamiliar with this website, it’s a place where people can go to submit ideas for things they’ve created or want to have created, and then members of the Quirky community can vote on […]


Stranded on a Desert Island

The other day while I was trying to fall asleep, a completely random thought crossed my mind, and I’ve been dwelling on it ever since: If you were stranded on a desert island, what one item would you be most grateful for if it appeared randomly. In this hypothetical situation of being stranded on an […]


Why We Write… Or Rather Why I Write

When I started this blog, I had no idea what direction it would take, or if I’d even enjoy writing on a consistent basis to keep going. Most of the time I’m still not sure what I want to get out of sharing my musings with the world, but just knowing that someone out there […]


A New Business Venture?

Around work I’ve started to earn a new nickname: Betty, as in Betty Crocker, because at least once a week I bring in some sort of homemade baked treat for my co-workers. My reasons for bringing in treats are a little selfish as I like to bake (and love the smell of yummy things baking […]

Since I’m not currently involved in a relationship, it might seem odd that I’d write about waiting until marriage when that isn’t something on my current horizon. In the past I’ve heard some criticism for writing about something that I hadn’t yet experienced but still had opinions on, so hopefully that won’t be the case […]


Giving Back: Simple Way to Assist Your Favorite Non-Profit

Earlier today I came across a clever fundraising program that really impressed me. It’s probably been around for quite some time, but since I’d never heard of (or paid attention to it if I had) this program before today, I felt a post mentioning this program might be helpful to others who could utilize it […]


The Future of the Restaurant Industry?

A few weeks ago, while out to dinner with my brother and his wife, we had a rather interesting conversation about possible future enhancements to the restaurant industry. Both my brother and his wife are training to become chefs, so I usually defer to them or my older sister when it comes to culinary issues. […]


Great Ideas: Restaurant Map/Interactive App

I came up with what I think is a pretty great idea earlier in the day, and I really hope it doesn’t already exist– then I’d probably feel a little silly. While sitting at dinner (at a restaurant I’d never been to before) with friends earlier tonight, it struck me that while there are a […]
