#Halloween #HauntedHouse

28 Oct

Totally awesome haunted house tonight.  So proud of my juniors!  All by themselves, they planned and put the party on. The 3rd and fourth floors had been transformed.  Piles of leaves all through the halls and rooms, scattered chair overturned for the ‘abandoned effect’!  The classrooms were amazing – evil butcher room with the creepy guy chopping bloody stuff; creepy dead bride in her red wedding dress, ghosts everywhere including up in the window ledges – they’d jump from the ceiling to scare people. πŸ˜±πŸ‘» People hiding under tables or in fabric screens would grab your feet πŸ˜‚  I loved it!  Such a great job!

Definitely #KPOP Star Material!

There is no way on earth you can convince me that this little #Korean guy and his pouch are not the #CUTEST things you’ve seen today. I mean the dude comes with hat, pouch, little shoes and all. πŸ’™ He is seriously #adorable and now proudly hangs from my phone in a position of honor where I can look at him every day and smile! 😊

Jobs Should be Interesting, Not Death-Inspiring

14 Mar

One thing that always bothers me, is that people read this quote to say that you should go haveΒ an “exotic” or “expensive” job. I often have people say that sometimes you just have to do the boring or depressing job because you need money. My answer is this–if the job isn’t something cool, then make it more fun. Be a happy person, play jokes, ask interesting questions, change the environment to be more fun. Just because the work itself is dull, doesn’t mean the job has to be. **DB

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

Enjoy Your World

4 Mar

β€œFor just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.”
