What’s Making Me Happy

My favorite scene in Paris is Burning

Everyone OK after that Wale post?  God knows that made my morning.  Clearly I need to get a Vine account and get one NOW!

Diva’s Half Marathon

Saturday is the Diva’s Half and I am PUMPED!!!!  I spent last night picking up out my outfit and putting all of my things together.  Tonight I will go through the intricate task of putting my running playlist together.  SInce this is the Diva’s Half, my playlist is going to be very Beyonce and RuPaul heavy.  I will also throw a little Action Bronson and Mos Def in there as well.


My mums are blooming!!!!  This is a source of pride for me because I struggle to keep houseplants alive, so I just knew my mums where going to meet their maker this week.

Saving My Coins

I am going to attempt to start bringing my lunch to work and start cooking at home more.  I like to see my savings up front, so a friend of mine gave me a great tip:  For every day I bring my lunch, take the money that I would have spent that day and put it in a piggy bank!  This way I can see my savings on a daily basis.  I spend about 10 dollars a day so that money is going to rack up quick.  I wonder what I will do with the excess????

The Kickoff to My Daughter’s School Year

I know people have their theories and opinions about ADD, but this year instead of “waiting it out” before giving my daughter her medicine, I went ahead and started giving it to her day one.  You know what the result was?  A child that can now keep up with her work because she is focused in class.  On Tuesday when I went to check her math homework I was prepared to have to work extensively with her correcting her work.  Don’t you know there was nary a problem wrong?  I even asked her if she did it herself and she said, “Of course, here’s where I showed my work.”  The bottom line is I am happy I went with my gut, and I can tell my daughter has more confidence since she is able to keep up with her classmates.

Six Sigma Training

I have signed up for my first Six Sigma training.  I am starting off with the White Belt training as I don’t have a lot of experience in Project Management, but my new position will require me to do a lot of work in regards to creating processes and protocols for the sites that I will currently manage and the future sights.  I think this will be a helpful tool for me when it comes making these different sites run more efficiently.  Anyone have any experience with this certification?
