Ups and Downs

Ups- my photography teachers remarked that various shots from my edit were $500 portraits. Sweet. So yeah, hire me for your head shots. I gotz the skillz. That's where I need to focus on the positive. I can't remember a time in my adult, post college life where I have been so consistently inspired. Nothing like following ones passion.

Down. So this whole dating thing is having its ups and downs. Der. I kind of knew what I was getting into but it seems like every time a date doesn't work out, I get annoyed cause it requires me to go back to the drawing board. And then I wonder if I can find another smart, cute and interesting guy. Then a week goes by, and I usually do. It's just that being impatient and dating really don't go together. Then again, being impatient is something I need to work on and probably doesn't serve me well in any situation.

Ups- ever have one of those days where you look at yourself in the mirror and it's after a long day at work, rainy out, gross weather.. but you think, "damn, I look good." Come on, don't lie. You know you do. So yeah, I'm having one of those. Two very hot, but obviously younger guys stopped me on the street on my way home asking for advice on Thursday night hot spots. At what age is a woman old enough to become a cougar?

And down, even though I hate to end on a bad note-- two of my favorite coworkers are moving on from our company to pursue other endeavors. A company is all about its people and it's interesting to see how it evolves, grows, changes, etc. based on the particular group. Then how we evolve, grow and change to accommodate those changes.
