My favorite pastor in Arizona gave articulate, thoughtful, dry-witted sermons; however, he often warned that meeting him off the altar may be a disappointment. He was more reserved by nature.
I always think about it when I meet with someone for the first time who only knows me through my blog. I'm shy at first, awkward and get anxious to the point of feeling high.
It was great meeting you, @obviouswines 👋🏼 #soml
Late last night I was sitting on my balcony, listening to Matchbox Twenty and crying because I wasn't sure what the hell I'm doing with my life. ("Maybe I should've been an art teacher..")
Then I looked down at an Instagram message saying:
"Hi Annie! Kinda random but I just wanted to see if you wanted to grab coffee next time you're in town.. I just really enjoy and respect what you're doing."
Reminders: 1) The Universe is always listening. 2) Tell people when you think what they're doing is awesome. They could be listening to Matchbox Twenty 🙈 #soml

New blog post: "5 Steps to Apply Agile Methodology to Your Life."
I'm a Product Manager at a tech company, and things have been a little tense lately. One of my favorite mottos is "fail fast." However, I've failed to implement that at work and in my personal projects lately.
Today's article is about how to use agile methodology to correct that - from launching a product to losing weight - in non-tech terms:
1. Start with the ultimate goal
2. Divide it into small tasks
3. Create a cadence
4. Set tests with measurable success metrics
5. Persevere or pivot
Includes dating and interior design analogies per usual.
I'm on my way to meet my friend to take Sunday blog photos and was already getting bratty from taking it way too seriously.
Then he just texted me this quote: "You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life."
Brattiness in check ✔️
Leave your desk for one hour to do something you love, even if you feel guilty or tired or hangry.
I've been complaining that I'm not inspired and not as productive. But I had started staying at my desk during the day out of guilt and had stopped working in my home office at night out of laziness and Bachelor in Paradise.
After only a few 1-hour sessions with my laptop, my dad's blog products are finally selling and my writer's block is magically gone.
Telling my spaghetti squash, email inbox and Hulu queue that they can wait a sec ✋🏼#soml
