via Daily Prompt: Qualm, What is lying? I ask this question to provoke thought. As defined by Stanford.edu, the traditional form of lying is: "to lie =df to make a believed-false statement to another person with the intention that the other person believe that statement to be true".

In the summer of 2015, I got this idea that I should go back to school and earn my MBA. This is something I had considered off and on over the years; my undergraduate degree is in life sciences and I had no formal business education.

It was in November of 2003 that I embarked upon a new career. I finally landed the job I had sought for many years, the coveted role of pharmaceutical sales representative.

How many trees did I just remove from my house? I mentioned in another post I was going to go more formalized with my decluttering. Enter Pinterest - the source for all things everything. I found a cool PDF for the Konmari method, which guides users through decluttering by category all at once. Since I…Read more Developing papyrophobia 📜🗂📓📰📖
