That's what I call "ugh." Big ugh.

@demirstrub Demi, I think the biggest criticism of Rowe is his complete change of attitude where Wal-Mart was concerned. Overall, though, I agree with @patricksplace, Wal-Mart has a reputation as being a terrible employer. I certainly would go elsewhere if I were looking for a job.

@TammyL Thanks, Tammy! I need the luck. My research time today was full of one step forward and two steps back.
It sounds like you're doing a fabulous job with your reading. Any recommendations?

@JLWatsonConsult Jim, I think there always are exceptions. However, I was taught that you can almost always write something better than someone else can say it. So, as a writer, you should draft your own lead, then you can back it up with a great quote.
Thanks for reading and commenting.

Finding content seems to be difficult for so many people. I guess this is part of No. 2. I'm not sure if it's because of my journalistic background, but I never have a problem finding something to write about. I usually have more ideas than time. I love this because it means I can pick from a list of topics and decide what really inspires me right then. I rarely have to force myself through a post.

I agree with all of these. However, I would focus on reading more than watching movies. of course, I'm a nerd like that. :)

@JenMaidenberg This is a good point, Jen. It's kind of a "fake it until you make it" approach to happiness. Thank you for reading and taking the time to respond. I appreciate it.

@MeMyselfMike I am a creator. I'm not a lurker at all. I just can't do it. I have to join in. I guess I'm extroverted, even online.

@mhorton92586 I love everything about reading. I also encourage you to read outside of your "comfort zone."
Thanks for reading and commenting, Mike.
@stuffs I see both sides of your point. However, maybe (hopefully?) you're incorrect in your assumption that most people kill time via social media. I don't.

@mcrumph I think we'll have to agree to disagree here. I think punctuation is about pausing, not about stopping completely. Also, I like the way a single space looks on the page.
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I appreciate your view!

@ccocca I agree so much with your last line. It's easy to start something. It's not simple to keep it going.

The only thing that bothered me when I saw the commercial was that I thought they were trying to make us cry. A lot of the ads this year were really sappy. Of course, the racism and ignorance that followed the ad was just sad. So was the number of those people who didn't realize that America the Beautiful is not our national anthem. Pathetic.

I love working from home for all of the reasons you described above. Plus, I'm just much more productive at home because I don't have students entering my office every minute. The biggest challenge for me in working from home is staying motivated to work. I'm a napper, so I can use getting bogged down in just about anything as an excuse to take a nap. This is one of the key reasons I keep myself in my home office. It's a place of productivity. Even moving for long to the chair or the sofa in there results in me wanting to nap.

@AlliPolin Yes, the most important information must go in the lead. I love that you're teaching your daughter how to write. That's a life skill! :)

I'm pretty sure I'm married to my blog too. I can relate to so many of the points you posted above. However, I'm pretty sure I could have worse hobbies that benefited far fewer people. I'm still in it for the long haul.
