Starting with Succulents

There are a number of articles from my old personal blog that I want to salvage and one of them is a write up on my first cacti, Fuji and Eiji. I was immensely proud of and cared so much for them–probably a little too much. Eiji didn’t survive rotting roots and Fuji…well, it got…

Teacher of the Week: Syme, The Infinite

In continuation of our Teachers’ Month celebration, I have yet another willing victim. This week’s awesome teacher is Syme from The Average Gay Guy.

Customer Service 101

Not everyone can work in the service industry. Not everyone who works in the service industry actually fits the requirement. At least, that’s what I thought. Needless to say, Customer Service is not my first choice when choosing a career because it truly is difficult. How service personnel keep that charming and understanding smiles while…
