Final Year in New Beginnings

I’m thinking this might be my final year with my current employer. I had my annual review a few weeks ago, and I did not get a good one. A part of it was certainly my fault. During the first h...


Things between Holly and I have cooled. We’re friends now, apparently. When she said she could only offer me friendship at this time, I thought she was pulling the classic “friend zone fade,” m...


Like I teased in the previous entry, I’ve actually, finally been doing some dating. Right before December, my dating site recommended a woman named Charlene as a good match. I contacted her and...

Mini-Update in New Beginnings

Too busy to write a full entry, but stuff has been happening. I’ve been out on at least a half dozen dates since my last entry, I came very close to acquiring a girlfriend, and I finally had my ...

Party in my Mind in New Beginnings

I did something remarkable for myself last week; I went to a party. A coworker, Renata, left my company for a new position, and she had party at her house to celebrate. I use the word “party” l...

The V-Card in New Beginnings

I wrote about this topic a few years ago on my Open Diary, but it’s been on my mind recently. I was wary about writing about it once again if only because last time I got a few inflammatory comm...


So after months upon months upon months of talking about it, I finally made an online profile. I’m not dead set on finding a serious relationship, but I realize I’ve become too comfortable in my...

Getting Defrauded in New Beginnings

I was almost robbed, or wire-frauded, rather, a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been working with a financial planner, Gilbert, to handle some of my investments. Apparently, someone hacked my email a...

Foppish Popinjay in New Beginnings

I got to talk to Jacquelyn again on Monday, and I can say definitively that nothing will happen if for no other reason that I may be a d-bag. I finally saw her walk into the kitchen area next to ...

I DID IT! in New Beginnings

I actually talked to her! The dominant piece of advice in the last entry was just to send her an IM asking her how she was getting along in the company so far. Sound advice, but I was just too ...


So there’s this woman…always the precursor to a good conversation, right? Anyways, there’s this woman I kind of work with. At least, she works for my company. My company acquired another busin...

Ankle Rehab in New Beginnings

Has it really been a month? My ankle is feeling much better, not as well as I’d like, but better still. A few days after the injury, I was walking all right. A week after the injury I was able...


I was thinking about my “romantic” history, and by that I mean all the women I was ever smitten with. I realized something interesting, but I’m not sure what it means. Every woman with whom I w...


I haven’t forgotten about my Prosebox, I just need to get a life so that I have more to update. Right now, my life has taken on a comfortable, if uneventful, routine. If anything disrupts that ...


I fancy myself to be in really good physical shape. I follow a reasonable diet and exercise religiously, but I have one aspect of my health I can’t get in order, my mouth. I have periodontal di...


I suck at it. I’ve long been an extra introverted type. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being full time shut in, I’m probably a nine. There are advantages to being an introvert. We think m...

Fur-Kid Photos in New Beginnings

When my dad passed away, among the very few possessions of his I wanted was his cats. I lived with my dad for a couple of years when I was unemployed during the recession. During that time, we ...

Fraudulent in New Beginnings

I’m familiar with the saying “Fake it until you make it.” I don’t know where that saying originated from or for what reason, but I understand that it’s contemporary application is that new emplo...

Work Grievances in New Beginnings

Work last week was aggravating. Last year, the president of my business unit decided to have a beginning of the year meeting at a local resort. I say local, but the resort was about two hours n...


I used to think I was invincible. At least, I thought I could make myself stay fit and able bodied by sheer self discipline. I’d see older people who were once strong and active and were now de...


I decided not to apply to that job posting. More accurately, the job posting was removed before I made any decision one way or another. Even if another position appropriate for me becomes avail...

Job change (maybe?) in New Beginnings

I’m thinking about a job change. I’ve written about in previous entries how I’d like to get out of Atlanta (generally) and move back to Athens (specifically). At the moment, I have a very entic...


Last week I was having lunch with some of my coworkers. For a couple of days every month end close, my department orders a lunch for the accountants. It’s a nice perk that kind of compensates h...

Thanksgiving in New Beginnings

I suppose Thanksgiving 2015 was a success. It’s weird that last Thursday was the first Thanksgiving without my dad. I think about the times these past few years I had to drive down to Eastman a...


I tested for my blue belt yesterday. Nope, I didn’t make a 100. As a matter of fact, I barely passed. I was kind of shocked to say the least. When I had my review class a week ago, I thought...
