Over the past couple of weeks, I have been a victim of the government shutdown. It is quite unfortunate especially for me because I am a contractor and not a federal employee. I hear these federal employees complaining about not getting paid right now. The keywords are “RIGHT NOW” because eventually they will get back… Continue reading Government Shutdown, A Rant
This morning I was initiated into the most exclusive club in the building. Hell, maybe the most exclusive club in the entire EPA: the Donut Club. Out of thousands of employees, only the persons with the most refined pallets, and who have the most extensive knowledge of these fried circles of dough are chosen. To… Continue reading TODAY WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY
Hello everyone! I realize I haven’t written a post in quite a while. It’s not like I was super busy or forgot, I just truly have nothing exciting going on to talk about.

What that means for me is that I won’t be able to go to work for an uncertain amount of time AAAANNNDDD I don’t get paid. Well, I’ll… Continue reading Looming Government Shutdown
Wow what a great weekend I had! I went out to California to visit my aunt and uncle who live in San Jose. I hadn’t been out to that area since I was 5 years old!
