summer months

I guess it’s kind of been a while. Lots of stuff happened. I’m taking a business class and might attempt to start a small website business in the fall. Pretty fun. I’m also a substitute librarian at the main library here in Portland. I’m super excited about this one. It’s torture and wonder to work in a place so full of knowledge. I love to see what people want to read, and setting folks up with new library cards is a lot of fun. I’m also volunteering for the adult education classes during the summer. It’s pretty humbling to work […]

Why getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me.

A couple of months ago, I got fired from a crappy corporate job. I was in shock at first; very upset with myself. I had never been let go before in my life.

fates

 image by seinong on flickr i’ve been considering a few things lately, but primarily fate and whether or not it is real, or made up in our own minds. the dictionary says that “fate” is something that unavoidably befalls a person. that is, something that will happen to you regardless of what you do, something out of your control. i wonder if this means that rather than thinking nothing is fate, that everything is fate. in your own life, everything happens to you, correct? things may unavoidably befall you on a frequent basis. perhaps someone at work is overly rude, or someone you know is extra kind.
