My Recent Ramblings

Where will you be 5 years from now?

How many times have you been asked - or asked yourself - this question.  How much time or energy have you spent crafting your answer to this?  It seems like more often than not, the answers to this question tend to be of the "established in my career, married, 2.5...

2011 (or the year Melissa got her groove back)

2011.  Oh, what a year you were.  You provided some great times and some not so great times.  A lot of people hated you and can't wait to move ahead to the next year.  My feelings towards you are a bit more complex and live quite firmly in the gray area between hate...

What do “Milk” and “Schindler’s List” have in common?

On the surface, this question makes little sense – one movie is about the first openly gay man to be elected to major public office in he US and the other is about the horrors of WWII – but to me they both speak to some core aspects of humanity that seem to persevere regardless of era.

Something’s coming. . . .and it’s gonna be great?!?

I came across another post on Thought Catalog today that just kind of hit me - not in a bad way, but more in the "this is an interesting thing to think about. . .".  To be honest, at first I was drawn in mainly because of the title, because who doesn't want wisdom...

You had me at meat tornado?

Cats. The internet is made up of approximately 75% cat related items - videos, pictures, shopping, you name it, it's out there. Yesterday, my roomie shared with me one of the most-funny cat related things I have seen on the internet in a long time - Cats that Look...

Throughout the month of November, I have been posting things I am thankful for on Facebook. Now, I will admit, I got the idea after seeing other people doing the same thing, but I probably will continue this even after the month is over. For me, this is more than some...

No rest for the weary. . .

Wow.  I can't believe that I've been back from Nepal for three weeks already.  The past three weeks have pretty much been a blur, between catching up on sleep, getting caught up at work, traveling to Chicago for a weekend, and then a beyond busy week at work, I've...

Things that make me go hmmm. . . .

Usually when I find an article I like, I’ll post it on Facebook or tweet it, add some appropriate commentary (often witty and/or snarky), and share with others. There is no rhyme or reason sometimes to what I find interesting in a given day – sometimes it’ll be an article about some current event, something about a new movie, TV show or movie, or something completely random. My interests are varied (as anyone who has spent any time with me can attest to) and I have the attention span of a small animal at times (again, as anyone who has spent any time with me can attest to), so I’m going to try something different. Not only will I aggregate a few things in one place, I’ll also post them once-a-day (when the mood strikes) and try to write a bit more than would fit on Twitter or work on Facebook. Feel free to add your own comments to my thoughts – I am always interested in hearing what others think about things I think about. . .
