School Lockers

When I was in middle school I did enjoy a good brown paper bag book cover but I did not have an entire theme for decorating my locker. Either I completely missed the trend or it didn’t exist in the 80’s. I would like to think it didn’t exist. I mean surely I would have… READ MORE »

Goal Setting

Slow and steady wins the race. And that’s not just a cliché. It’s true. Even though we are very much an instant gratification society and want instant results with most things, if you have slow and consistent progress you will be much more likely to reach your goal and more importantly keep it. Some of… READ MORE »
