Life is made up of hills, valleys, and plateaus. I’m here to share some of my successes and failures so that someone else’s journey maybe a little easier.
(In full disclosure, when I write about the books, I am counting library books with pages that I can touch, and Audible books that I listened to.) I have recently gone through some heavy books. (They seemed heavy in my mind.) “Mao”, by Jung Chang, was a deep dive into how Mao created Communist China.Continue reading “What Are You Reading?”
I know that I am not the only person who loves the holidays. I love them so much that I love to pack in ALL the FUN, and in that packing, I find myself overwhelmed and even a little exhausted. If you are like me, your month of December is jam-packed. It is jam-packed withContinue reading “Healthy Holidays”
This morning I had the opportunity to meet with a female Marine who is coordinating a symposium for Marines on Okinawa. I was delighted to hear that she wanted to get information about OLS, our model, and what we have done to create an impactful event. It was an honor to be able to shareContinue reading “Okinawa Leadership Seminar Holiday Party”
Back in 2016, I used to see my amazingly funny friends no less than twice a week. We played kickball together, and our team had fun. We won some games. We lost some games, but it would be tough to find a team who got along as well as we did. In addition to kickball,Continue reading “Bloom Café”
For those of you who are new to the blog or have seen a couple of the blog posts lately, this recap is for you. For my mom, mother-in-law, Aunt Claudette, and a few close friends, this blog isn’t for you. You already know most of what I plan to share in this particular post,Continue reading “Half-Way Done”
For friends and family who live in the states, this may or may not be a big deal. Some people love Starbucks. Some people just don’t get it. I would love to review a case-study on WHY people like it so much. I am sure there has been one done. Regardless of what side ofContinue reading “Let’s Go to Starbucks”
I think the first Tour of Homes that I ever attended was on Okinawa, and it was December 2019. I had heard of Tour of Homes. They have them on most of the bases, but I was never in any of the clubs that hosted them, and I never felt like I was missing out.Continue reading “Tour of Homes”
I have finally decided that I am ready to return to school. I earned my master’s in business almost 20 years ago, and I have considered going back for my PhD two other times. Many years ago, I considered it, but could not commit because I knew that I would need to relocate with myContinue reading “GMAT vs GRE”
I don’t do crafts. Well, I don’t do crafts until I’m supposed to be studying for the GRE, and all of a sudden, I become a crafting queen. I know someone out there can relate. What started out as a great idea a couple of months ago became a “well, I invested money in allContinue reading “Origami Ornament”
I had a few different writing options for today, but none of them felt quite right. One felt too vulnerable; I may write about it another day. The other one felt too negative; I really try to avoid putting negativity out into the universe. Instead, I will write about an event that happened this timeContinue reading “Marooned on Yokota”
