New Years Resolutions

new-year

 

I’m not a person to make resolutions because I feel like they can be easily broken. I am more of a person that just changes my lifestyle to fit my needs for that time.

This year, I have decided that I would actually write out resolutions and share with you guys…also so you can hold me accountable. I’ll break it up into sections and than add the resolutions under each.


LIFE/HEALTH

  1. I will eat healthier.
  2. I will get into the best shape of my life.
  3. I will be happy.
  4. I will help more people.
  5. I will be a better person, just in general.

WORK

  1. I will continue working on my blog and create engaging content.
  2. I will reach 10,000+ blog followers for 2017.
  3. I will become very successful in my career.
  4. I will love my work.
  5. I will help people through my job.
  6. I will finish writing my book.


That’s all I have folks! I know I should have been doing this all along but I’m sticking to these!!!!

Let me know your resolutions and also if I need to add any to mine!

THANKS!

Millennials

millenials

I am a millennial and I can’t stand millennials. Don’t get me wrong, not all millennials are the same but a majority that I come across are little entitled brats.

I just saw a mom and her son (probably in his mid 20’s) eating at Einstein Bagels and he is telling her about the recent Kim Kardashian scandal. She is listening intently and commenting when appropriate. She seems very patient.

Side note: I love to people watch so I’m staring them down like a piece of cheesecake.

Anyway, after he finishes his rant about the latest celebrity gossip, she asks when they get home, if he could do his laundry and clean the bathroom. He flat out says “no, that’s your job.” She doesn’t say anything but an intense stare down occurs.ย They don’t say anything for a few minutes and he says, “by the way, we need groceries at the house.” She goes, “I’ve already been to the store so if you need something else, you can go.” ย He just looks at her and says, “I’m not spending my money on groceries.”

At this point, I’m staring at him with my mouth open. If I would have talked to my mom like that, ย I wouldn’t have been able to sit for a week.

This little turd is still talking back to her and I’ve just had enough…I lean over and say to the mom “Please accept my apology for what I’m about to say to your son.” To the son “listen here you little shit, how about you quit being disrespectful to your mom and get off your lazy ass and contribute. You are about 25, right? Yea, well she has every right to legally kick your butt out of her house but for whatever reason, she hasn’t, so show some freaking respect.” He just looks at me dumbfounded. He gets up to leave, and the mom grabs my arm and says “Thank you. Seriously.”


I’m not usually a confrontational person but this dummy was just straight rude and I couldn’t take it. It was disgusting.

I’ve been around other situations similar to these…and it makes my stomach turn. My mom would have slapped me in the mouth or better yet, kicked my ass in front of all the people in the coffee shop.

Although, I am millennial, I was taught to be more considerate and not to think the world owed me anything. I’m trying to create a path for myself, which yes, has caused me to struggle but it’s my struggle and no one else’s.

Sorry, Rant OVER!

Let’s do this thing called ‘Team Building’

For starters I act like a child. More in a sense that I love to laugh at stupid things and enjoy activities that adults usually don’t.ย  I love cartoons and playing hide and seek with my nieces. It is actually quite a list.ย  I also love sports and am…..SUPER competitive. No matter how bad/good I am at something, I’m going to talk mad shit before.

So this leads me to last night. I was in charge of our office “Team Building” outing.ย  So I chose laser tag. It’s a competitive ‘sport,’ I say this loosely and just something fun to do.ย  Now I haven’t played laser tag in years but it was very close to work and it was more of an adult laser tag than anything. And they had a bar!ย  So done deal!ย  This place was so freaking cool. It had multiple levels with hideouts and different games/missions that could be played.ย  Like this was legit. All in a huge warehouse.

We had about 25 people and we split up into teams.ย  I ended up getting a specialty sniper rifle (did I mention I was southern?) so I was happier than a hog (love that phrase…you’re welcome!).ย  So my job during each mission was to cover my team members from different vantage points.ย  Essentially protecting them from the other team.ย  We completed 9 missions.ย  The first 3 were horrible.ย  We weren’t communicating and everyone was going rogue. We had some of the best shooters on our team but it didn’t matter if you didn’t have a plan and if you weren’t communicate.

Finally, another team member took charge and said here’s the plan.ย  “What we are doing is not working and we are going to keep losing if we don’t work together.”ย  I guess it hit everyone at that moment that we needed to formulate a plan and stick to it. And guess what, after that we started winning. We worked together as a unit and covered each other until we won the whole challenge.

This whole team building exercise was quite an experience an I would definitely do it again.ย  At work today (and yes I am writing this while at work, shhhh!) everyone is communicating like I have never seen before.ย  It is unbelievable.ย  Also, everyone is laughing more.ย  There is a different atmosphere here today.

To anyone deciding whether or not team building exercises work, believe me I have done different types, and this one totally exceeded expectations.ย  I have attended seminars, all day conferences, and workshops.ย  Nothing to this caliber. Usually the workshops and seminars teach you the fundamentals to implement but with the one we did yesterday, we learned first hand and implemented all at the same time. I would recommend anyone doing this with their company.ย  It was a great experience and totally worth the money!

Thanks Ya’ll!
