Real Problem: Body Issues Not Yoga Pants!

The real problem is not yoga pants! What are we teaching our children about body issues? So there is an epidemic about yoga pants. Apparently it is too distracting to young teenage boys. Boys who can be distracted by just about everything anyway. Thank you puberty! Since yoga pants are banned in schools the boys will be able to study more right? Not so sure. As studying in middle and high school i...

Let Kids Be Kids!!!

Let Kids Be Kids!!!

If you can, think back to your younger years, maybe when you were grade school age, or even younger if you can. What were you like? Did you have fears and worries and doubts or anxiety?? Kids can be cruel. Let’s face it, adults can be cruel too. The world isn’t by any means a perfect place, it’s far from it. But as a parent, you want to try to instill good morals and selflessness...

Thoughts on “The Scissors”

It wasn’t until I was in my twenties, that I learned I was a mistake. I was sitting at my parent’s dinner table. We were just chit-chatting about life, school, and other, you know, normal, non-life-altering conversations that could make you re-think your entire being, when it casually came out. “A mistake?” I said. My dad looked at me like I had ten heads. Then, in his thic...

Millennial Bad Reputation

Why Millennials Have a Bad Reputation

Millennials seem to have a bad rap. Many, especially baby boomers, tend to say they walk this planet with a sense of gotta-have-it-now entitlement and a lack of work ethic. They’ve also been referred to as lazy, addicted to social media, and carefree. But is this really the case, and if so, is it their fault? In my opinion, millennials didn’t really have a choice. They were born into a...

My Not-So 9 to 5 Job

Sometimes I dream of working a 9 to 5 job. Where I can SIT at a desk, wearing something other than a blue polo and khaki pants, and sip a cup of HOT coffee. I could have had such a job, or most any job for that matter, but I chose to become a retail pharmacist. When people ask me why I chose to become a pharmacist I don’t really have a good answer. To be honest, I kind of just picked it. Alt...

Confession: What Blogging is REALLY Like

I started blogging a little over a year ago. In this time I’ve learned SO MUCH about the blogging world and I must confess, it’s not really what it appears to be.  I’ve wanted to share what I’m about to say for a long time now, but I was nervous about how others would respond….especially since many of the reasons I started WIRL Project stem from many of these blogging...

Neighborly WIRL Project

Are you Neighborly?

I like to think of myself as a friendly person. I like the idea of knowing my neighbors. If I needed to borrow an egg or a half a cup of sugar. If I was in need of help I would like to think I could go to a neighbor in case of any minor or even a major emergency. I would be happy to do any of these things for my neighbors. Wouldn’t you? Well I live in a cul de sac full of people and only the...
