As our most thankful month of the year comes to an end, my book characters and I want to give a great big THANK YOU for giving us life and joining us on my 1st book collection journey. After today, these books will not be available as I consider the opportunity to create new stories. . We also raised a total of $568 to support two amazing nonprofits. A donation of $318 from the Kickstarter fund went to support @donorschoose to help schools affected by Hurricane Harvey. A donation of $250 from post-Kickstarter sales went to support @sandyhookpromise to prevent gun-related violence in schools. . Thank you also to those friends who shared stories/photos of reading my book(s)! Makes my heart full. 😊 If you’re interested in a recap of my entire journey, check link in bio to learn more! . Cheers and thank you again for the support!
To cope with the series of disasters this season, I had some help creating thank you cards to send to firefighters in Napa.
I’m fatigued just thinking of the series of tragic events, but then I’m encouraged that the season of thanks is upon us. So much gratitude goes to our firefighters, police, paramedics, dispatchers, etc. I’m feeling arts and crafty and want to make #Thanksgivingcards to our first responders. Join me?

Whenever I see a company’s video (especially in #b2btech) that opens with optimistic instrumental music and off-centered talking individuals (you know what I’m talking about) or a pan of the side of a building, I catch myself excitedly thinking it’s going to be an SNL-like parody. Anyone else or just me?
A minute in and nothing’s really changed. It’s the same music now showing candid shots of people working. Classic. “Oh, they’re serious,” I disappointedly think.
Does your current #resume look visibly different than when you first started looking for a job? I’ve had my share of job hunts, and I used to critique resumes as a job in college. (Anyone remember resume paper?)

My desk at New Relic, Inc. started out 2 years ago in a high traffic area. So to meet new people, I would ask teammates who walked past to draw me a fish.
I explained that I felt like we were in an aquarium swimming to and from on the 10th floor where marketing sat. (My Pre-K teacher side was clearly showing itself.)
After a few months, I was able to collect a variety of fishes that I put on display by my desk. (And then I decided to collect other post-it drawings and then I moved desks…but anyways I finally took out the fishes on my last day.)
And what I saw was that an aquarium is beautiful when we have different fishes swimming in it. :)
Thanks old and new fishes for joining my New Relic journey! Now off to swim in a different aquarium!
