I’ve been a runner for over 15 years. It’s something I picked up in my mid-20s. I dabbled in the beginning years. Over the last couple of years, it’s MY THING. I love to run. I run on vacation. I run a couple times a week. I love competing against myself. I am always asking … Continue reading Why Do we Tie Salary to Worth?
In 2015 I left public accounting to work locally in a hospital's finance department. Public accounting was more fun than I expected it to be. The recruiters during college made public accounting out to sound awful. They tried to bribe me with bagels to come work for their company. Nice try. I wasn't working a … Continue reading Signaling Change to the Universe

See before I walked into my local library I said to myself if the Marie Kondo book was on the shelf then I would read it and do my own KonMari tidying event. This was sort of the triple dog dare … Continue reading Would This Fit Into a Tiny Home?
Yesterday I eavesdropped on my coworkers talking about a virtual Tupperware party going on. Honestly I thought Tupperware was from my childhood and it wasn’t a thing anymore.
