Why Thursday, For Me, Can Be A Nightmare

Why Thursday, For Me, Can Be A Nightmare

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of October of 2001. I was a second year law student at the time. It was a Thursday. A week later, my maternal grandmother died of a sudden, obviously unexpected, heart attack. I wasn’t there. I was an hour away.

A Week in the Life…

A Week in the Life…

And having said that, this might be why I’m not around social media, specifically, twitter, too much anymore. There’s actually a few reasons I’m not on there as much (day job, the rampant negativity, trolling trolls, etc), but the main one is…it’s a huge time-suck, for me.  Some can balance the…
