Hey guys! Today is Google’s birthday (also apparently acorn squash and salami day). How did we ever live without this?
Anyway, let’s get started!
What’s new with me?
Ugh… I have been boring this week. I went back to work yesterday, which was surprisingly nice. I always miss my second family when I was away and was definitely feeling the love. Oh, and I found my favorite super-hero socks again! I am terrible at loosing socks and no doubt have like fifty pairs somewhere just hiding. Still, my Flash socks are back ( I like to pretend they make me faster, and if I take off my shoe I can flash my coworkers… I am sure they appreciate that).
What’s new in news?
There is an organization in Maine called MaineWorks that gives ex-cons help after getting out of jail. They help them find jobs in fields that pay decent and spots in sober living homes and the like. I really love this idea mainly because it is hard to find anything when you have a record. If you have someone ready to help you through the stages, I think it would be easier to stay on a better path. From what I understand in this article they mostly work with convicts that have a record pertaining to substance abuse or trafficking.
What’s new in books?
I saw an ad for this in the New York Times Book review, and I must say that the blurb just enthralled me. Here’s what it said: ‘ Every mystery is not a crime. But every crime starts with a mystery. sometimes there is justice. Other times, a great reckoning.’ How amazing does that sound?!? Unfortunately for me, this is book 12 in a series, so even though it is out now my heart says I need to read the rest first. That is quite an investment though…. I have never even heard of this author. Has anyone read these? What are you’re thoughts?
Well, that’s it for me for now, what’s new with you?
