It’s not every day you wake up to find out the company you worked for folded overnight. What were the odds? (Well, it turns out they were probably good, but I didn’t know to be paying attention.) But still. It was an unexpected shock, and a heart-breaking one. I really liked my job, had good relationships with…
— 1 — It’s been awhile since I’ve been this glad to see a Friday night roll around, but goodness, I am so glad it is finally Friday. I feel like I’ve lived about three weeks worth of life in the past seven days, and I’m exhausted. This weekend will have about three days worth of…

Contact me anytime at simplefelicity7 (at) gmail (dot) com! I'd love to hear from you.
