UVSC DanceSport Competition

A while back, Berkeley competed at the UVSC winter dance sport competition. He competed in the Waltz, Quikstep, and Cha-Cha. He and his partner, Emily, took first in the cha-cha and 2nd in the two other dances. He is so amazing and works so hard to be good at everything he sets his mind to. Here are a couple pictures of him competing.

I wanted to make a post dedicated to my wonderful friends! Some of the most fun I have ever had has been when I am out with the girls being silly. I love these friends who let me be myself and love me for who I am. You guys are the best! My life is so blessed because of you.

A Shout-Out to the Rednecks of the World!

I love rednecks! I grew up with rednecks as an "Okie" (aka a person who lives in Oklahoma). This post is for laughs and to say that I love it when people let go of their concerns of what other people think and just be themselves! We all need to find the redneck inside of us every once in a while. Enjoy!

He must have really liked the shirt to wear it in his engagement picture. It says, "If I throw a stick, will you leave?"

Yes! Beer in hand, dog in tow, a baby on the way, and a wedding day!
Love this.

Music Makes Me Happy.

Don't you love it when you hear a song and it immediately lifts your spirit and makes you smile? Well, this song titled "New Soul" by Yael Naim does that for me. The first time I heard it, I loved it. I hope you enjoy the video. If any of you have any music suggestions for me, then please let me know!

Does anyone else feel like this is the way all places of employment are going?

SICK DAYS:We will no longer accept a doctor statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

SURGERY:Operations are now banned. As long as you are an employee here, you need all your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired you intact. To have something removed constitutes a breach of employment.

PERSONAL DAYS:Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

VACATION DAYS:All employees will take their vacation at the same time every year. The vacation days are as follows: Jan. 1, July 4 & Dec. 25

OUT FROM YOUR OWN DEATH:This will be accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks notice, as it is your duty to train your own replacement.

RESTROOM USE:Entirely too much time is being spent in the restroom. In the future, we will follow the practice of going in alphabetical order. For instance, all employees whose names begin with 'A' will go from 8:00 to 8:20, employees whose names begin with 'B' will go from 8:20 to 8:40 and so on. If you're unable to go at your allotted time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your turn comes again. In extreme emergencies employees may swap their time with a coworker. Both employees' supervisors in writing must approve this exchange. In addition, there is now a strict 3-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, and the stall door will open.

LUNCH BREAK:Skinny people get an hour for lunch as they need to eat more so that they can look healthy, normal size people get 30 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain the average figure. Fat people get 5 minutes for lunch because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim Fast and take a diet pill. Sondra gets none.

DRESS CODE:It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary, if we see you wearing $350 Prada sneakers and carrying a $600 Gucci bag we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a raise. Thank you for your loyalty to our company.

We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternations or input should be directed elsewhere. Have a nice week. -- Management
