I've Moved!

I have a new website!  You can now find me at This is where I will be posting all my new content.  You can subscribe to the new threads there, but be aware that they are divided into 3 separate blogs now, so you can choose to only listen to me ramble about certain things, or you can subscribe to all three.  Hope you like the new look, thanks for reading!

Too Big for My Britches

Do I need a website?  No, of course not.  I should explain. I am finally, after many years finishing up the very last credit that I need in order to complete my outstanding degree. It's a pitiful story really, one of a pregnant woman (code for concentrationally challenged and perhaps a touch spacey) miscounting and taking a 2 credit class that should have been 3 and viola, everyone but me walks. Anyhoo, 7 years later I have scraped together the dollars required to make it happen, and after a very kiss-bottomy letter to the board appealing to them to let me back in, I am rolling. I will, in a few short weeks, finally be able to claim that MA in business. The one that I already claimed in my bio, you may have noticed, but I was kind of lying.  To defend my honor, I can say that I was enrolled in the class when I wrote the bio, so it feels like we could perhaps refer to it as a stretch?  

Blah, blah. I took the class that looked like it would require the least amount of reading and writing.  I wish I could tell you that I was eager to get back to the books, but let be honest, I have always hated writing when it's homework. Actually I've always hated writing at all.  There aren't enough rules and right answers. I like tidy boxes for information as much as I like them for my crap. I prefer some good old fashioned algebra. Well, I'm sad to report that there has already been a fair bit of reading and writing, but the good news is, this class is called "Design Principles for Business Applications".  Now you know exactly what I'm doing because it's so clear by the title.  In a nutshell, I'm designing a website!  Yay! 

So it's not perfect yet, and I don't know how to do a bunch of the stuff I want it to do, but here it is and I hope you like it.  I know it's excessive for a little blog that only a handful of you like to read, but it sure has been fun.  Let me know what you think and what you think it needs and I'll get on google and try to figure out how to do it. Or I'll ask my sister-in-law who's site is up and awesome and figured it all out already. She should get a grade and a couple credits. 

Happy Spring everyone!
