Me & My Muse – Day 1448: A Sunday Calm…

Considering that twelve and a half hours was devoted to the training that I went to yesterday, I get all of Sunday to enjoy.

I went to church this morning, got some groceries, and had breakfast with my grandparents.  The remainder of the day will follow with winding down and getting ready for the next day.

Today’s high is going to be 68 degrees and the silver lining is enjoying this Sunday off.

To those of you who are enjoying this Sunday and are recovering from the flood, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  It looks really bad.  How many streets were flooded?  Over 100?  I hope that everyone is okay…

Me & My Muse – Day 1447: Early Training is Early

So early that I’m pressed for time to leave a post.

This morning, I am leaving for GVSU Downtown. The whole day will consist of the Toastmasters TLI. From the training, I will be going back home. That is all.

Today’s high is going to be 71 degrees and the silver lining is going to today’s training.

To those of you who like to travel, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  *yawn*  Enjoy your training!  I’m getting a little more sleep… *yawn*

Me & My Muse – Day 1446: Friday Flood

When it rains six inches nonstop, this is what happens.  Ladies and Gentlemen, breath a sigh of relief.  We have all survived the Flood of 2017.

When I went off to work this morning, the back driveway wasn’t just a pond.  It was a lake.  There was so much water that I got my shoes all wet trying to get into my car.  On my way to work, I fortunately did not encounter any standing water.

To sum things up, my morning was very productive.  I got a lot done and a lot of business was made.  I’m sure that a lot of it had to do with the flood.  And to everyone with a flooded basement, I feel you.  Mine was a little flooded, but nothing was underwater.  It was just the window wells.


Muse:  I hope that you’re doing okay.

What?  No Dark Sith Lordess Muse?

Muse:  I’m dropping the act today.  This is not a time to play my sinister part.  This is a serious matter, and it must be addressed first.  I will give it at least the weekend, and I’ll return to hunting and annihilating every last Jedi.

Not if I, Remedy, Luke and the other Jedi stop you!

Muse:  Let’ save it for Monday, okay?  Besides, I still need to rehearse my later parts.  Time to go reflect on this.  If you need me, I’ll be in my room, okay?

Okay.  I might visit you later.  Maybe a short time, since I leave for Grand Rapids early in the morning.

Muse:  I’ll see you later then.  Have a nice Friday!

I will!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

Some flood, huh?  Anyway, I need to get ready for tomorrow morning and enjoy the rest of my Friday.  That’s the plan for today.

Today’s high is going to be 80 degrees and the silver lining is being done with another week.

To those of you who are staying dry today, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  All that water…I hope that everyone is going to be okay!

Me & My Muse – Day 1445: Chill Thursday…

Why is it chill?   It’s not because of the weather, but chill for a totally different reason.

This Thursday is chill since I don’t have any Toastmasters meetings tonight.  For my typical months, I have Toastmasters meetings for the first three Thursdays.  After that, the fourth Thursday comes along where there is no Toastmasters meeting.  This is relief, since I’ll be able to get some much needed reading done.  I will read some more What Color is Your Parachute and revise my job-hunting strategies.  It’s more than just applying.  You need to know someone that works there if you want to get in.  Headhunters also work, if you have done something very impressive that has attracted the attention of a prospective business.

Today’s high is going to be 84 degrees and the silver lining is having the remainder of this Thursday to unwind.

To those of you like the occasional time to unwind, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse;  While he’s unwinding, I’m unleashing some more search parties.  It’s only a matter of time before the Jedi are found…

Me & My Muse – Day 1444: WedNESday: Summer Edition

To kick off the first day of summer, I was able to get everything done at work.  Everything went quite smoothly.  With that done, I dropped off my Jobs For Life application, had an iced Mocha at Live Oak Coffeehouse and came home.

My friend came over early, so hanging out with him will be fun.

Time to wrap this up.

Today’s high is going to be 76 degrees and the silver lining is being able to hang out with my friend.

To those of you who like unwinding with friends, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  We will find those Jedi.  Sooner or later, we will!

Me & My Muse – Day 1443: Terrific Tuesday

Terrific in the sense that it’s not 8:30 in the evening when I’m typing this!

Having that said, the 15-hour shift is done.  The first 9 hours of that was worked yesterday and the last 6 was worked today.  I know that it’s technically 3 shifts but with there being so little time between working last night and working this morning, if felt like I was still on the clock.

To celebrate my terrific Tuesday after work, I cashed in all my loose change and finished filling out the application for Jobs for Life.  This was supposed to be handed in today, but was delayed due to some unforeseen circumstances, but I digress.

The celebration will continue with a Toastmasters meeting tonight and a dinner at Taco Bell afterward.  That is pretty much this day in a nutshell.

Today’s high is going to be 73 degrees and the silver lining is actually having some time to unwind today.

To those of you who like to unwind after a workday, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Where are they?!

Dark Muse:  All the Jedi have escaped!  We searched their abandoned base thoroughly and found nothing.

Muse:  Find them at once!  They will threaten the stability of the Empire!  They all must be stopped…
