Facing My Fears

One of the biggest problems I have is facing my fears.  I don’t think I’m alone when I say that, either.  It seems that often times people would rather avoid doing something, sating something, or being something, because they have a fear.  Fear of rejection, fear of failure, and in my case, fear of death via a large mechanical device flying off a track.  The idea of a roller coaster failing with me on it is TERRIFYING!

This past week, my room mates Matt and Patrick, as well as our friend Ian, decided that I needed to conquer this fear.  Let me rephrase this.  Matt and Patrick, coaster enthusiasts, decide to break Ian and I, flat footed soil bound folk, into the wonderful world of coaster at Cedar Point in Ohio.

A Day in the Life

Sometimes, one of my blogging friends posts an entry so interesting, intriguing, or fun that I just have to steal it. This morning, Kate over at Faded Words posted an entry mapping out her day, from wake up to bed time. I figured this would give me the opportunity to go through my “average” day, and explain what exactly it is that a property manager does.
