48 Things I’m Bitter About

Mirrors are such liars. I wake up every morning knowing that I am handsome and funny like Steve Carell, but as soon as I look in the mirror, I see this strange, weird, bitter older looking guy. So they are pretty useless and bad liars. It's this time of year, that I finally realize that … Continue reading 48 Things I’m Bitter About

Bitter Book Bitterness

Recently, I did a blog post about the fact that I've been blogging for 9 years now. Which seems crazy, because I barely have the attention span of a gnat. This blog is older than most gnats.

Have you ever noticed that your life seems like a broken record? Hold on. Let's back up a little here first. What is a broken record? If you are under 25 do you even know what a record is?

Halloween Bitter Friday Giftures

  Halloween is just around the corner and this may be the scariest year yet, because many places are either cancelling or being told they can't do Halloween.

The Amazing Race Bitter Friday Giftures

  Race has been a tricky word this year, whether it be in the race for the presidency or other dealing with the different races in our country, but I think we should talk more about the Amazing Race, which just started its 32nd season?

Subject Lines Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was in 7th grade, our social studies teacher made us do this assignment where we had to pick a career that we wanted to do when we grew up.

Editing 2020 Bitter Friday Giftures

  As writers, or wanna be writers like me, we are all pretty familiar with the editing process in one way or another.

My Chair is Aging Bitter Friday Giftures

  I just started a new job a couple of months ago, and when they brought me to my desk, it was pretty plain. It has a computer, two monitors and well, a chair.

Attention Getting Bad Air Quality Bitter Friday Giftures

  You would probably never guess this, but Utah has one of the worst air quality areas in the country. It's this weird weather phenomenon called the inversion that makes it that way.

Bodycam for Work Bitter Friday Giftures

  I get a lot of ideas and inspiration from Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert), who is actually a pretty brilliant guy, with a good sense of humor.  I'm much like him, except for his brilliance and sense of humor.
