Thank you all for the comments on my last post. You are the greatest [hugs].

This is my first attempt at a BYOC. Thank you Draz! I will work on adding your button next time ;o)

1.       How do you feel about college? If you have kids or siblings - will you encourage or require them to go? How long did you go and what for?

I am the first in my family to ever finish college. One year after getting my Master’s I was laid off. I would like my daughter to go to college, but if she doesn’t, I will try to be OK with that. My undergraduate was in Human Development, but I ended up working in the finance industry. My Master’s is in Business Ethics. I am going back for a certificate in Computer Information Systems this summer. I don’t think I would be going back had it not been for the economic downturn, but my mish-mash of degrees doesn’t really link up with my professional experience, so I am trying to make myself more marketable. My career plan after getting my Master’s was doing something in organizational development, but when the crap hit the fan, professional and organizational development was the first things businesses cut to save money.

2. Pink or purple? Coke or Pepsi? Pen or pencil? Cursive or printing? Ketchup or mustard?

Pink & purple
Pepsi I guess, but nothing is better than water.
Pens of all colors please
Cursive and printing – Like Draz, I mix it up. Even in the same sentence

3. If you could live in any generation - which one would it be?

Right now! I need and want all of today’s advances and comforts. I like the fashions of the past, but I would not choose to go back to a time when I had to worry about the color of my skin. The 80’s or 90’s would be cool, but I still prefer the here and now.
4. What do you sleep in?

I usually sleep in a tank top and underwear.

5. Repeat question - summarize your week!

My week started of pretty crappy, but it improved. I am so excited for the weekend. PLEASE let us keep this awesome weather.


  1. Our weather has been awesome too!! It has been in mid 80's here. I have spring break the week after next...I will be so mad if it is cold that week :)

  2. It is tough that after getting a masters degree you still were laid off. It is crazy now how many people have advanced degrees and it's still not enough!! You are smart to go back and get something though that will complement your work experience!

  3. Seems like alot of us prefer tank tops and unders. Most comfortable outfit ever. :)

    Hope you're having a great weekend!
