I am a forgetful and careless person. In elementary school my teachers would always report to my mom and dad during parent teacher conferences, "She's a bright girl but she rushes through her work and makes careless mistakes." More than one of my bosses has listed "attention to detail" as a development area on my … Continue reading You Gonna Learn Today – Returning to Work (Part 3)

Looks like OMGF is the Cinderella story of the Rockstar Rumble. Please vote for me in the Sweet Sixteen!
I have a confession. I live in my car or at least you would think that I do if you've ever ridden in Silver Betty. "You can just toss that shoe/shirt/purse/folder/cup/trash in the backseat/trunk/under the seat," I say to any and every passenger who gets into my vehicle between her biannual cleanings.

We wrote and performed skits and spoken word, sang gospel songs … Continue reading Sanitation Is No Service

Like most writers, I am very attached to the words I put on the page and think they are quite readable. However, I realize that there are people … Continue reading OMGF Podcast Episode 1 – Be Prepared

All my life I have been blessed to go to the best schools. While much of their childrearing was haphazard at best (Purple Rain should not be your three year old daughter's favorite movie), my parents were deliberate in the choices they made for their children's education. Not only did they move from a hood … Continue reading What About Your Friends? Caviar Friendships With a Tuna Fish Budget
