10 more days...

"I've got two tickets to paradise,
Won't you pack your bags, we'll leave tonight..."

I'm posting this picture simply because it was the only one I took today. I was driving home from a long wedding weekend and it was posted on facebook so everyone could share in my frustration.

Somewhere in the Sun

Oh I wish I was there tonight on Jost Van Dyke
Sipping on some Foxy's Firewater rum
Or kickin' back with Ivan
With all my friends down in the islands
Wouldn't take much for me to up and run
To another life somewhere in the sun
 - Kenny Chesney

Jost Van Dyke is the smallest of the four main islands of the British Virgin Islands

Exceeds Expectations

2010 was challenging in many ways at work. I put my best foot forward and expected the recognition for it. It was a close call, though. I was disappointed when I discovered I might not get the rating I deserved, but someone who believed in me fought for me. It's a good feeling to know someone thinks you do a good job. What's even better is to hear that people recognize the change in you - a new found confidence, an optimistic outlook, a stronger work ethic, an "I'm not going to take your shit anymore" attitude. Sometimes that's all you need to get by!

I'll Cover You

Live in my house,
I'll be your shelter,
Just pay me back
With one thousand kisses
Be my lover
and I'll cover you.

Road Trip

"I'll wait for something under a streetlight
It won't be long
Because it's dark it's cold
It's one of those nights where
There's something out there
Keeps me alive..."

Something New

Today I made the huge decision of purchasing a new car! It's funny how many people will try to influence you one way or another...from friends, to salesmen, to parents...sometimes it makes it difficult to make your own choices. So, after looking into a few different cars and dealerships, I went with what I've wanted all along. I'll never know if I got the best deal, but I believe I got a fair deal, and I got the car that I love. :)

Diggin in the Crates

You've got to live your life
Do what you want to do!"
Thanks to Richie Santana, Chris D and all the crazy partiers who came out to celebrate a special birthday. ;)

What is it worth?

What is it worth for you to stay in this job forever? How much would you need? Would you take a job that didn't pay as much if you knew you'd be happier? Would you take a job that pays more even if you hate the work? Would you sell yourself short or sell someone else out? Would you sell your soul for the bottom line?
