I haven't posted in a very long while. Not much has changed. I acquired and conquered my annual case of bronchitis for the fourth year in a row. Lasted nearly 4 months. I'm still watching Kdramas. Royal Gambler, aka Jackpot, is a historic yet modern series. Can't explain it. Just watch it. The boys are hot.

Unbelievably how fast times flies, I have been working at my job for almost three years now, my anniversary is coming up in July. Everyday I have fun, a little bit of stress, but I am grateful that I enjoy what I'm doing, my co-workers, and my surroundings. Doesn't hurt that there's coffeehouses up & down the block.

My baby niece isn't a baby anymore. She has a nine month old sister. I have an almost two year old nephew. Everybody is fine. And the world is my oyster.

The more time I spend with my three year old niece the more nostalgic I become. I think she was a techie zygote in the womb. Gotta remember to ask her mom if she noticed her holding a smart phone in the sonograms. Her current birthday wish was for a pink iPad. Kids nowadays are beyond sophisticated which is probably a good thing but I think everybody needs a little bit of naivete.

I struggle with manual hard work vs technological speed. Ask Siri where the closest ATM is, find the best burger in Vegas on Yelp! or possibly tweet with your favorite celeb. Yes, these inventions are lifesavers. Have to confess that I am usually on Instagram when I should be doing something more constructive.

Journaling manifested into blogging. Adobe replaced markers, colored pencils and glitter. I will love Illustrator until the day I die, but I equally love to hear the scratch of a good ink pen. Collages. Painting. I would draw logos with a ruler on drafting paper. Magazine clippings of my favorite bands then running them through the xerox to make envelopes. The Replacements. If you remember xerox machines and The Replacements then you might be ancient like me.

Each decade has something new and it's amazing that even as old as we grow, we can adapt. Essential and exciting. Vinyl, mixed tapes, CD's, Napster. Celluloid, Blockbuster rentals, DVR, Netflix. Pin-hole camera, Eastman Kodak, Polaroid, one hour developing, iPhone. Carrier pigeon, e-mail, texting.

I want Kayla's life to be enhanced with crepe paper, plastic scissors and Elmer's Glue. Put down the iPad, baby. Hopefully her horizons will broaden when she enters preschool.

I've written about my Heather Morris infatuation before. Reason being: the wide-eyed sex bomb with the quirky one-liners. Sometimes it feels like she's just testing you with her unique observations of life. A Very Glee Christmas showed Brittany asking Santa for help so Artie can walk. She sweetly revealed, "Remember, even the smallest envelope is heavy for an elf."

Bronchitis is a bitch. I chronicled my 2013 adventures at the CVS Minute Clinic, and just about a year later I'm back. My boyfriend and I waited five hours for  cough syrup with codeine. Three weeks in, I've resigned to the fact that I will probably get this again in 2015 and that the only thing I can do is let it run it's course. I've been wanting a unicorn Pillow Pet Glow Pet since before the holidays, and it's comforting me. My lovely boyfriend made it light up that night.
