Friday Freestyles

Finally Friday.

Goodness. This has been a LONG week.

I think it's been long because there has been no sunshine. It has been drizzly all week. I can't even say that I have encountered rain. I haven't even had to open my umbrella, as I don't think it would even matter. It's that type of nasty drizzle that floats in the air. That's the only way I can describe it.

But this morning, sunshine flowed through my windows. And I realized how much I took it all for granted. Sigh. I just took a moment to be happy to see it.

So that is my good thing of the day!

Nothing much going on here this week. Just wanted to post something...

Today is PAYDAY!!


I heard my old work group was shut down. People still have their jobs doing other things. I saw that coming a mile away, so I am glad I decided to take a promotion in another group. That was right on time.

It reminds me even more to pay attention to red flags. That was a doozie.

My sister is a pro at spotting red flags with people. She is one to listen to her gut. I tend to make mental post-it notes and keep them on the back wall of my mind. And when some mess jumps off later, I think... well, I knew there was an issue there. It blew up in my face. Now I know for sure. She is good about getting ghost on you long before you give her much trouble. And she will hear the stories from others.

I need to get to that point. I am starting to pay better attention. And getting out of my old work group shows that.

Quote of the Week.  I heard this one yesterday:

The man on the left thinks of himself as nothing and nobody. The man on the right thinks of himself as important and all that.  
Both men are correct.
(As a man thinks in his mind, so is he. Period).

That is much to consider. I spend A LOT of time journalling my thoughts, and really seeking if and where I need to make a course correction in my thought life. It is more often than not, and that is fine. As long as I recognize it and change.

Songs of the Week. For these rainy days, a couple of pieces of what's called "Cloud rap"...

I didn't know there was such a sub-genre of rap. I don't like chopped and screwed rap, but this has elements of it. And it works well. I think you have to have a good amount of liquor in you to listen to too much of this.


A bit of ratchetness... just a bit.

And with that, I am out.

Ready for my weekend! And I declare it will be a great one!


  1. I have been at my new job for 8 weeks. I am glad I left when I did. So many folks have been laid off since I left. I saw some get laid off before I left. I noticed how many in my group were getting new job titles and I still had the one they wanted to phase out. I don't know if they would have kept me and I wasn't waiting to see.

    1. Yes. I think you know when it is time to go. You really do. And that's no time to wait around and wonder.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
