I love catching the Grammys each year. I'm not so interested in who gets awards -but I do like a couple of hours of great music and incredible performances (with unbelievable variety!).

Luv this Michelangelo quote!
Like many, I have been in the unfortunate situation of abruptly finding myself without a job. I don't mind telling you, in the moment, it's a completely demoralizing experience. When this did happen to me, there were a few steps I took so I could move forward productively:
