This is a rant

"Tell the devil I said "hey" when you get back to where you're from..."

As an employee, I'm responsible, hard-working and a team-player. 
I will do what I'm required and go above and beyond. 

But that stops as soon as you take advantage of my willingness to do more than just my part,
...that stops when you are condescending,
...that stops when you make me feel worthless and lazy.

Others feel the same way. 
I'm just saying it and making it known that it is not okay. 
I'm not accepting the status quo.

NaBloPoMo - February!

The email I got from NaBloPoMo about February blogging:

Greetings, bloggers! The theme for February blogging is CHARACTER. It's a flexible theme, allowing you to blog about all sorts of things:

1. The people in your life who stand out in regard to their outstanding (or lack of) character -- the use of pseudonyms might be prudent here;
2. Experiences in your life that have helped you build moral character, and the work you might still need to do;
3. It's a chance to try writing in character -- try on different personas and voices for fun, or to address things you might not normally talk about;
4. Character is another word for a letter or symbol, if you feel like it's finally time to indulge in some font nerdery.

I know a few characters. I also like to create characters for stories I never get around to writing. Maybe working on some interesting character development this month will get me motivated for - at the very least- a short story or two. We'll see.

Happy Blogging, NaBloPoMo kids! Just think, at the end of THIS month, it'll be March and we can **hope** the weather will be a bit warmer.
