Hi friends! I’ve finally done it. I’ve moved! My little home on this corner of the internets, courteously hosted by WordPress.com for the last 3 years, has finally moved to its own place with its own url. I’m still populating it and tweaking it to look exactly the way I want it so please bear with me for a little bit. As always, a HUGE thank you for reading and I do hope you’ll stick around and follow me over to Internet Therapy’s new home: http://www.internettherapyblog.com/.
Good Luck with That Card from Creativity
Check me out people – I’m gettin’ around these days! NO, not like that you silly. I’m over on the Wantist blog today with a hilarious gift collection for expecting parents. Know someone who’s preggo? You DON’T want to miss these gifts!
And side note – if you’ve never heard of or visited Wantist, get ready to bookmark it. It’s FAB!
Sounds funky, that’s for sure. But it is indeed a recipe. Would you make these Strawberry-Banana Pepper Poppers? If not, would you at least try them if someone else made them? I’ve gotta admit, I’m intrigued! I love me some spicy food so I would definitely be willing to give these a try. Just not sure if I’d waste all my strawberries making them… You?

Every time I feature pancakes I feel the need to preface it with saying I really don’t like pancakes, but for this particular recipe I would be willing to make an exception. Every. Single. Time. So in the spirit of predictability, let’s go ahead and throw these into that category too. What I would really like is for someone to host a nice fall brunch and serve these as the main dish. See what I did there? Now I get to eat them and I don’t even have to make them myself. I would bring some nice wassail though. Promise.
So who’s house am I coming over to?
This is a sad time for many, many people with the untimely passing of Steve Jobs yesterday. Sure, we all knew he was sick, but no one really ever expected him to die. Not so soon, anyway. He had a profound impact on many people’s lives, particularly those in creative industries and he will be greatly missed.
So rather than get all weepy, I thought we should look at it more positively and celebrate him. He was an incredibly insightful man and uttered some pretty powerful words on many occasions. Here are some of my favorites, many of which were taken from his commencement speech at Stanford in 2005.“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish.” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. … You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” ”Ask yourself: If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today? When the answer is “no” for too many days in a row, you know you’ve got to make a change.”
