Tolerance

Thigh muscles aching the day after — the joy shines from within. When people ask where I was on the 20th, the magnitude of my answer seems to shock people. . . I was proudly one of millions that was propelled to Washington not just to witness history in the making, but to bask in the goodness […]

It is a slow day in the office and the weather is warm. I think I’m going to go out and actually sit at a restaurant for lunch.  One of my favorite pass times, when I’m not actually working at work, is perusing YouTube for funny videos.

Throughout my experiences with dating, I have encountered people who aren’t accustomed to being supportive, trustworthy or respectful. There were times where I fell short of giving my all for whatever reason, and things didn’t work out the way I would have wanted them to. The trial and error that is experienced when seeking a […]
