New Year, New You
Thursday -- January 31, 2013
Happy New Year! It's amazing how much can change in one year. Last January I was laid off from my job and thrown into a world of uncertainty... this January I have a better paying job, a new car, rent control, and I couldn't be happier :) I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a great year!

Integrity is FOREVER
Success Will Come and Go
Success Will Come and Go, But Integrity is Forever In the spirit of the new year and our ever-changing society it's important to stay honest with ourselves and others. A friend of mine sent me an inspiring article, Success Will Come and Go, But Integrity is Forever. It's a nice quick read with a strong message, definitely worth sharing!

Super Bowl Sunday - February 3rd, 2013
Go San Francisco!!! Speaking of success, the San Francisco 49ers have made it to the 2013 Super Bowl!!! I'm originally from Northern California so for my friends and family this is long awaited :) It just goes to show that it's never too late to succeed. Be ready this Sunday... San Francisco's going to bring it! May the best team win.

Love Hate POETRY Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Here's a little love poem to get you in the spirit :)

Love - By Jonathan Siegel
too tiny a word
to express what i feel
it should, in size, exceed all words
the others should cower in its presence
'never was there life in me
until the day she danced into my eyes
in her arms, lie worlds unfathomable
her smile has effect beyond comprehension
her touch releases unearthly passion'
and it's to her i go
like a fool
armed with nothing
but that small word
