Attitude built by experience

I’ve reached an age where I can objectively handle pretty much anything.  This gives me an ability to let most things just pass without much thought.  Such as someone getting mad over a decision that gets made, getting passed over for a promotion or something as simple as negative perceptions.  It’s when presented with these life situations that you gain valuable experience.  As the graphic so perfectly puts it, experience alters your attitude and it…

Three Things Thursday – 09/22/2017

Hosted by There She Goes Originally inspired by Nerd in the Brain BRING THE HAPPY! The last TTT I posted was way back on June 15th, so I’m a little out of practice and for that, I apologize.  Work has intruded rather rudely into Life and I’m finally at a point where a balance can be achieved again.  That said, here we go! Phone Is Finally Fixed About two weeks ago, my Samsung Galaxy S7 stopped…

Migration complete

Migration was successful and all is where it should be.  So, there’s this cool feature where you can migrate all your followers from an old blog to a new blog.  I just did that, so you don’t need to re-follow if you were already following.  Not that it mattered, but if you already decided once to read what I’m writing about there wasn’t a need to go through having to do that again. There shouldn’t…

Technology

Welcome to my new home

Welcome!  If you’re reading this, you already know that I’ve migrated to a self-hosted provider.  It’s surprising at how powerful the WordPress application is once you get away from WordPress.com.  The old w1nt3l.com blog will be up for a few months, but at some point I will cancel it and get a pro-rated refund. Not much time tonight to write much as it’s getting late for me.  Hope you decide to follow me again.

Six month break from audits

I’m finally free of audits for at least the next 6 months at work. Yay! A welcome break from what has been an absolutely hellish 5 months with literal back to back audits. One would end and the next would start the following week, sometimes with some really annoying overlap. Mixed into all of this I’ve managed to keep writing for Eat Pray Vote, the political opinion site where I’m now a partner. Two weeks…

Dealing with technology still a PITA

You would think that with all the advances in technology and software that things would have become easier.  Windows 10 and other operating systems have taken a lot of the guesswork out of figuring things out for yourself.  Even with that convenience and efficiency, there are still things that are more complicated than they really need to be. WordPress This is an awesome platform and WordPress is the Amazon of the blogging world.  Sites around…

The 1 in 500 years storm

This is the first major storm that I’ve experienced where I’ve had a direct connection to victims that I know personally.  I don’t have the experience to even start to imagine what they’re going through right now on the ground in Texas, Houston especially.  The videos, pictures, first hand accounts and emotional posts to Twitter don’t even come close to conveying what all those people are now having to endure.  People are saying this is…

Nothing stays the same

I want to start off by apologizing to all that follow me for my lack of activity the last few months.  Life has been rather hectic this summer so far and there isn’t any reprieve for me in the near future based on what I know is coming.  Sticking to a writing schedule has been difficult when there isn’t much time so spare.  The little downtime I manage to scrape together has been dedicated to…

Mr. Crankypants

To say that I’ve been busy the last few weeks is a massive understatement. There are certain things that I do daily and weekly that help me cope and process the outside world that I have not been able to do for various reasons. Work has been crazyballs. Home has been crazyballs. It’s hard to sequester yourself when there is so much to do every day. I get those looks that say without words “You’re…

Weekend "Would You Rather?" 32

After playing an interesting round of “Would You Rather?” with the family, I thought it would be fun to get into the game of a weekly blog post.  Feel free to join in on your own blog and be sure to give an answer to the question of the week. **I will keep these questions rated G** Would you rather lose your sense of taste and smell OR Or lose your ability to distinguish colors?…
