OOOF, where to start? I'm a geek, a fan of sci-fi/fantasy, the paranormal, the unusual, and the daughter of a man who was and is self employed, so I got the "Independent" streak from him. Have finally figured out that working for someone ELSE is not where I want to be, and does not grant me NEARLY the freedom I want to have. I currently work for the State... which is not NEARLY as "Safe and Secure" as I thought it would be when I foolishly sought that job. Let's just say I have some extra motivation to make this thing WORK, and work WELL.
Quick update 1/2012
I no longer work for the State. No job is worth my life or my soul, and it was going to take both, if I had stayed and allowed it.
Consider it further motivation to make this WORK.
