Why I am amazing

You know, that sounds like the most pompous, arrogant, narcissistic subject for a blog post.

But I have had an irritating, disappointing, frustrating month and I can either whine like a three year old or I can try to do something positive.

I choose the latter. I am going to explain how this crappy month proves how amazing I am. I will be somewhat brief. Then you will be returned to your regularly scheduled programming.

A few weeks ago, the office issued me a new computer, which has been a pain in the butt to master. But I am mastering it, one day at a time. At the same time, I was put into a week long intensive Sharepoint system course, while having to simultaneously put together the very complex regular school district newsletter. Of course, this all had to be handled while preparing for Sweetie's and my anniversary. There have been night meetings in the district virtually every day since mid-April. I am tired as hell. And it is allergy month.

Yet, I have not gone insane. I have kept the grass mowed. I have met all my deadlines. I planned a special anniversary event and thus have not had to sleep on the couch. And I have even posted, albeit sporadically, to this blog. I have also correctly spelled simultaneously and sporadically, without resorting to Spellcheck.

So I am intelligent. Hard-working. Flexible. Dedicated. And blessed in many ways.

And that is enough of that.

I second that sentiment. It’s time to celebrate you and all that you are. Maybe it should be ECD day today. Happy ECD day!

Thank you, Chase. Make tomorrow, then, the day to celebrate you -- a gifted teacher, a devoted apologist for the oft-misunderstood world of hip-hop, and a talented writer!

It is not narcissistic to take a moment after a difficult patch to remind yourself that are, in fact, an accomplished, sane, talented and compassionate human being. What the world can take away from you, you must take time to replenish. It is only narcissistic to dwell in that place for prolonged periods, which I just cannot see you doing. I hope your anniversary was truly special for the two of you.

Kudos, Ecd.

And Happy Anniversary.

Every body makes a point you should take a day and celebrate you just like Chase has stated. I know my celebrate me day is when I am all done with high school in about 5 weeks and then I can't wait!!! YAY we should have a day for ourselves everyday!!! And Yay I got to skip school today and had fun and yes my mom knew about cuz i was with her the entire day and then she worked at 3:00 until 9:00 tonight. But I am going to hang out with friends tonight. See, I love to talk all the time that I seem to write more the others that leave comments for you. Just hope that you don't mind.. I love writing and talking I can go on for hours...and hours...and hours.LOL

Sometimes just keeping up with day to day responsibilities is an accomplishment. Rests are necessary, too.

I agree wholeheartedly! If you don't on occasion be happy with what you've done then what's the point.
Happy Anniversary to You and your Sweetie.
