I Miss You

I am sure most of you by now know that I love Kludgy Mom’s Idea Bank.  There are so many topics and prompts so chose from that I love going over there and picking one to write about.  If you are ever struggling to find things to post about I would go check out her site and I know you will find 100’s of things to write about!  For this post I chose to write about:  Is there someone who was in your life that you miss?

I chose this one because last week I read a book called “The Milestone Tapes” that I will be reviewing in a few weeks and it made me think of a few people that I really miss and I am sure I will miss them for the rest of my life.

The first person is my great grandma that passed away the spring semester of my senior year of high school.  She died in April and I still remember it like it was yesterday  I was super close with my great grandma and her dying was really hard on me.  There are days that I sit back and wish she was still around so I could talk to her or listen to all the fun stories that she told me.

The other person that I miss is Melissa and she passed away in October of last year.  I will always miss her because I did look up to her and she was always trying to make peoples days better.  I knew her when she started blogging and we became really close.  She was like a mom to me and it hurts to know that she is gone.  I will always wonder what pushed her over the edge and why she did what she did.  I also know from here that I can’t sit around and ask why things happened so I am living my life for both of us and I hope she is looking down and proud.

Those are 2 people that I will always miss but I know there will be more over the years but these two are the ones I miss right now.

Who do you miss?

Blogger Cliques

I was looking through Kludy Mom’s Idea Bank and saw this topic: Do you feel there are blogger cliques? And if so, where do you fit in?  When I saw it I knew I had to write about it because I do think that cliques happen in the blog world just like they happen in real life. I blogged for about a year before I started to find other blogs to read.  I of course found some of the big blogs when I was starting and I loved them but then drama started between one group of them and another group.  I stayed out of it and wasn’t sure what they were really arguing and fighting about but when I happened I literally stopped reading all of their blogs because I hate dealing with drama and crap that reminds me of high school.

As most of you know I am slowing starting my own design business and I have seen that there are also cliques in the design world.  I really have tried to stay out of them because I just don’t play that game and I also want to be friend with everyone.  I do have a really great friend who taught me all I know and is still around to help and give me advice.  Other than her I don’t really talk to other designers because I refuse to deal with drama and cliques.

I really just don’t see the need for cliques because as bloggers would should all support each other.  Drama of it all just gets old!

What do you guys think of cliques in the blog world?

Pet Peeves

Today I am going to make a list of some of my pet peeves.  I am sure I will forget some of  them so this will be updated at some point.  I got this topic from Kludgy Mom’s Idea Bank.

  • Hearing people chew their food.  I have to get up and leave the room if someone is chewing loudly because it is like nails on a chalk board  to me.
  • People coming up to my desk and just staring at me and not saying anything at all.
  • People that keep stealing stuff even though they know I know!
  • When my brother and grandma start to argue in the middle of the night and wake me up when I have to get up and go to work in the morning.
  • Getting woken up by someone
  • Drivers that don’t speed up on the on ramp to the freeway so that it is harder to merge into traffic.
  • When people call at work and don’t know who they want and they expect me to be able to read their mind and know who they need
  • People eating my food.  If someone has a bite of my food I won’t eat the rest of it.
  • Bullying of any kind.
  • People who sneeze so loud that it sounds like they are yelling.
  • People who have office close to each other but instead of going to one of the offices they just yell back and forth to each other.
  • Drama

Those are all that I can think of right now but I am sure I will come up with more.  What are your pet peeves?
