PAUL 

Listen, my children, and you shall hear 
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, 
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five: Hardly a man is now alive Who remembers that famous day and year. He said to his friend, "If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light,-- One if by land, and two if by sea; And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country-folk to be up and to arm." Then he said "Good night!" and with muffled oar Silently rowed to the Charlestown shore, Just as the moon rose over the bay, Where swinging wide at her moorings lay The Somerset, British man-of-war: A phantom ship, with each mast and spar Across the moon…

Daily Prompt: In the Summertime

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/04/06/daily-prompt-in-the-summertime/

Kayaking. Kayaking is one of my favorite summer time hobbies. (My aunt is a die-hard that will kayak even in the dead of winter-as long as there is water and no ice) I’m a normal person that only goes during the summer. :)

Driving the car with the windows all the way down…..that’s another thing that I’ve missed that I can’t wait to do again. I LOVE to drive, and my first trip is in two weeks, I’m really hoping the weather is going to be good enough for my windows being down. *fingers crossed*

WHAT ABOUT MY OTHER NORTHERN BUDDIES???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT DO YOU LOVE AND MISS AFTER THIS RIDICULOUSLY LONG WINTER??????

 

 

Daily Prompt: If You Leave

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/12/daily-prompt-if-you-leave/

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

Oh my God!!! My life right now!!!!!!!! lol

Sometimes I get so sick of life drama that I just want to pick-up and move somewhere where I know no one, and no one knows me. But then I have to remind myself that drama and “life situations” are every where.

However recently, my chance at “leaving” came in the form of a job offer. I currently work at a fairly large hotel property in Albany, New York. My title is Sales Coordinator, and I LOVE my job. I sell overnight rooms to large groups, and I get the chance to sell our banquet space for parties, weddings and meeting/conventions. (We have about 8,000 sq ft worth of banquet space) So even though I work with the “bride-zillas” and stressed out soccer moms every once in awhile, I’m always working with the people so excited about their wedding or vow renewal, or pumped to win their sports game while knowing they have a clean hotel they can come back to when they’re done.

The job offer I got was for the position of Catering Sales Manager at a completely different property (not the same brand either). The offer over the phone sounded amazing. I would finally have a manager title (something I’ve been waiting for, for about 6-months now) and it was essentially a $10,000 raise a year from what I’m making now.

I went down to the property (it’s in the heart of downtown-one of my cons, because I already live about 20-30 minutes WITHOUT drive-home traffic, and this adds another 10 minutes to my drive) and of course, it was gorgeous. It was only about six years old, and they’d done some pretty extensive renovating.

Then I sat down with the person who would be my manager and learned the full story. Yeah, I would be making that extra bit of money, but not only would I be driving further and through more traffic, I would be doing the job of three people because they’re short-handed (their Sales Manager had quit that morning) and I had to be at every event. There were a few other cons also, but honestly, my list would be to long, lol. :)

Anyway, I went back to my hotel, and I had a few people question how it went (I’m really close with my coworkers and we all want what’s best for each other-even if it means moving to a different property to better ourselves). After I told them my pros and cons, they all kind of nodded, made a few comments but didn’t say anything.

I went home, slept on it and decided to stay where I was. Even though I was getting that extra money, there were just too many cons, and I didn’t think it was worth it.

Even though sometimes we want to leave and start over, sometimes it’s just better for us to stay where we are and wait for that “awesome-something” to come along.

Everything happens for a reason, and I believe that. :)

P.S. My dream? Move to Disney. <3
