Since I last saw you

Standard

Since 20160215_090503 (1)I last saw you:

My son got sick, I got sick, we got a new puppy, she got sick. (As if I needed a reminder about why I am a germaphobe) I finished another class for college, and I found out that I am guest blogging for Richmond Mom’s soon! It has been CRAZY at my house!!!! The new puppy is super cute. She is the calmest puppy I have ever been around, we have named her Abbie. My son turned 16 this week, and has been begging me for a dog for a long time. I finally gave in, and overall feel it was a good decision (although an expensive decision).

Back on the train this morning after a while of working at home, and now that my household has survived The Epidemic 2016. Sleepy is sharing some of his photography pictures with us, they are unique and captivating.

The train is quiet this morning, there is a new rider. He reminds me of Forest Gump. He goes down the isle and just looks for his Jenny to say, “You can sit here if you want.” He finally finds an empty seat and takes it, but he seems to be quietly taking in the experience of the train. He’s too far away for me to talk to.

About Andi

This chapter in my life is called, "Managing Millennials". People always say that I have a way with words, and that I am great at managing Millennials. The secret truth to my success? I worked at a public high school. I was an educator that specialized in behavior and building relationships. So what happens when the sweet little kids that inspired me to sponsor clubs, put in extra hours and spend my own money all enter the workforce???? They drive you crazy! I can help! I understand why these participation trophy earning young adults are driving you crazy in the work place. I understand that the fact that we are inheriting a technology talented pool of workers that sit at their desk with ear buds in their ears and celebrate medicocricy in the name if effort. I understand that you are not used to emojis and GIFs in business communication, and that you don't want to stand around on a break discussing memes, vines, YouTube epic fail videos and what you binge watched on Netflix. I once told my students that they would learn to follow my rules because I refused to be miserable for the next 1488 hours of my life. Ninety percent of the time... They did. Now, I tell my millennials that same thing, "Welcome to the workforce. There are policies and procedures in place that will help us get along for the next 2080 hours of our lives." Welcome to my blog, "Let The Managers Say Amen."
