The Rewards of Writing

I don't write much about the trials and tribulations of my "professional" life on this blog (because that's not really what this blog's about).

But I did want to pen a little something on this occasion.

Last summer, after the rather underwhelming loss of the job I'd held for seven years (and I say underwhelming because it just sort of...fizzled away as the economy stagnated), I did some consulting work for a colleague who had, much earlier, gone to work for another company. (The team I worked with was actually made up, mostly, of people who used to work at my former company. Family reunion!)

I digress. One of my teammates let me know yesterday that the project I'd done the scripting for won a Best of the Best/Clinical Category award in the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) awards this year.


I had no idea there were such awards.... (Learn something new everyday!) But I'm happy my writing abilities were able to help swoosh the team into the slot.

While I don't write for the recognition, a little outside positive feedback makes the world go 'round.

Music Mondays: I Don't Know Edition

I'm in a weird head space right. I've been reading too much news out of California, paying attention to too much media (social and otherwise) and it's left me a little numb. So here's some music for this Monday. 

"Go Home" - Joan Jett and Evil Stig

"Doll Parts" - Hole

"Volcano Girls" - Veruca Salt

"Night Vision" - Suzanne Vega
