The 18-Day Grind

Posted by Rye on February.12.2016 in Uncategorized |

One of my personal mottos in life is this:

Work hard. Play harder.

That couldn’t be more true at this point in time for me. Why? Today marks working 18 consecutive days in a row and that includes my day job and my weekend gig. If y’all are curious to know what I do, I’ll explain Read more…

My New Lent Event

Posted by Rye on February.11.2016 in Uncategorized |

Black ash cross!

I was at work and some customers had black ash crosses (lol*) on their foreheads. It signaled to me that today is Ash Wednesday. I’m usually on top of my religious game.

Anyways, I alerted my friends and family and asked what they’re giving up, if anything. I’ve been giving something up every year consecutively for about two decades. Every year was a different sacrifice, if you will. Read about them in my previous slice – Bent on Lent.

Before I let y’all know what my new Lent event is, let me

Nothing Lasts Forever

Posted by Rye on March.11.2015 in Uncategorized |

Look around. Everyone and everything you see, including the sun, will one day cease to exist. That goes for all the abstract things, too, including your job and love and the job I love. I’m not being cynical; I’m being realistic.

Like a fun-sized candy bar, I’ll make this slice short and sweet. This topic couldn’t have been brought up at a more opportune time than now since my current job is soon ending. My friend Mandy recently told me that everything is temporary. In other words, as Outkast musically put it in their song Read more…

Do You “Talk” Too Much?

Posted by Rye on March.8.2015 in Uncategorized |

Upon reading the title of this slice, you’re probably answering to yourself, “No, I don’t.” Before answering without knowing the context I speak of, consider this: People talk all the time without any action.

As humans, we often say things we’re gonna do to appease others and even ourselves with little to no action behind them. I admit I’ve been guilty of this. I’m sure y’all are, too. But this year, I’m taking action on things I’ve said and things I say.

There are three types of people in life: Read more…

Worst Week in 2015? Part 2 of 2 – A Positive Plot Twist

Posted by Rye on March.3.2015 in Uncategorized |

Greetings, loyal readers! May the good times alwaze outweigh the bad. For most people, that’s true. But it also depends on your outlook on life…

In my last slice, I discussed that I was still recovering from my wisdom teeth extractions and that my car was broken into. I then returned to the scene of the crime to search for my stolen belongings. If you haven’t already read part one, please do so before continuing. This slice will make more sense. You wouldn’t watch a sequel without watching the first instalment, would you?

I ended the last slice on Tuesday. As a reminder, I’ll make this slice shorter than the last. On Wednesday, my week was still going bad. Because my car was in the shop, I had to Read more…

Worst Week in 2015? Part 1 of 2

Posted by Rye on March.1.2015 in Uncategorized |

We can’t truly appreciate good times without having bad times. 

We all have bad days, bad weeks and even bad years, but never a bad life.

Tough times don’t last, tough people do.

Whatever doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.

These were some uplifting thoughts I had during this bad week. But instead of focusing on the negative, we gotta change our thinking and utilize the Silver Linings Playbook. Great movie, by the way. When bad things happen, as it did this week, we must see the positive perspective.

Although the title of this slice is negative, I started it with positivity. Like life, it’s a balance. We sometimes have to take the good with the bad. As y’all read in my slice about my wisdom teeth, I was still Read more…

Brain Crumbs – quote

If God brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it. 


It’s Inevitable

Choose one.

This is a slice from my old blog that I’ll be posting to honor Throwback Thursday. Originally posted on 11.7.11

Imagine if you had a house where you can only open a window if the doors are closed – and vice versa. Take a second to ponder about this. Really think on how it would make you feel. Personally, I’d be irked and wondered why it has to be like that. How does it make you feel? Mad? Sad? Frustrated? Lost? Whatever the feeling may be, it’s normal to feel this way.

I bet you’re probably thinking that this idea is odd. Are you intrigued yet, though? Well, I don’t recall where I got this from, but supposedly the way you react to this scenario is how you feel when Read more…

It is & It Ain’t For Everybody

Posted by Rye on February.25.2015 in WFG |

Greetings, loyal readers! Welcome to another edition of WFG Wednesdays! 

In this business, many people succeed by sticking with the system. However, people often get discouraged for many reasons. It’s easy; too easy actually. What’s worse is people not even trying.

The truth is that people treat life the same way. I get it. Sometimes, life can be tough. This week for me has been the worst week thus far this year. I’ll get to that later. When things get bad, it’s easy to give up or many just keep themselves in the unfavorable situation without any attempts to change.

My “Extraction” Point on Wisdom Teeth

Posted by Rye on February.25.2015 in Uncategorized |

I alwaze wanted to keep my wisdom teeth. I figured that I would die with them still intact and untouched. But as fate would have it, that wasn’t the case. On the morning of 2.20.15, I had my wisdom teeth pulled.

The weeks leading up to it, I asked many people if they have had their wisdom teeth pulled. Roughly about 50 percent of those I asked had the teeth-pulling procedure done. Out of those, I’d say about 30 percent had complications, including infections and dry socket. I wanted to know if I was able to work after getting my teeth pulled.

Since I do nothing but talk for my job, I was definitely concerned. Many people told me that I’d need Read more…
