To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's that time of year....

I've had the same job for 5 years...

It's the most committed I've ever been...

And, every May (like clock-work) I have a nervous breakdown... because my job seems tantamount to an accountant's on April 15th... but, it lasts for months... through September 30th, to be precise.

It's May 28th... I ALMOST made it through the month....

I have 2 huge multi-phase proposals due within weeks of each other, one $11.5 million bid with a good faith effort package with a big deadline... blah blah blah... no one knows what I am talk about here... blah blah blah...

and today I ALMOST didn't make it through the day...

But, I did, because my boss made me laugh... he's totally getting smarter! He walked in today and took one look at me and said "Brinker, do I need to give you more money?!?"

haha SUGAR DADDY! Well good luck with everything, Ali. YOU CAN DO IT! I really feel for you right now.

Question--are you a David Cook fan or something? What's the deal!?
