2016-06-22: Rental hunting and the Secretary Problem

Well well, I haven’t been writing anything since I started dating this gentleman – funny, considerate, and smart.  So that proves that my go-for-it attitude and pipeline management actually work a bit. Or in his word,  everything can be figured out once you have the determination to solve it.

2016-03-06: It’s all about who you are

I’m looking for me
