I have no idea how it happened but all of a sudden, thanks to a Twitter convo that got out of control, I am now planning a road trip to Atlantic City…We’re aiming for August/September…If you’re in the DC area, it’d be this massive road trip…a couple of cars depending on how many people are going and the rest can join us there. So far, I have: JustJP, GingerMandy, FrickinEh, The Odd Duck, I Hate So Much, Baking With Plath, LiLu, Lexa & Deutlich. f.B, you weren’t on Twitter last night but naturally you’re invited. If you’re in the DC area and are interested in being included, email me @ email@example.com and I’ll include you in the planning emails.
Projects of PQ:
I’ve been talking one of these for a while…and the other one is pretty new but I’ll be focusing on two projects this summer, in addition to freelance jobs. I know, I just can’t sit still. These two projects though, I need you guys to pimp me…since this is for others and not for me.
HTML PQ Style: HTML tutorials & tips…For those switching from Blogger to WP, wordpress.com to self-hosted and everything in between from plugins to design. Most tutorials don’t address the most BASIC FAQs…the foundational questions…That’s what I’ll be focusing on. I’m the most efficient in WP but I’ll be poking around in Blogger to take those questions as well. I’ll also be available to help people switch to self-hosted accounts from a free WP or Blogger account…as well as help with finding new designs, etc. For now, my ‘fee’ will be on a case by case basis.
Career Tips for 20-Somethings: All the career advice out there is too general…Not aimed at US…the 20-somethings trying to make it in the corporate world. I’ll be writing tips, advice, etc…based on what I think is important, as well as your questions…I will try to make it as broad as possible, addressing specific issues pertaining to different industries…but it’ll be more focused on DC professionals…for now. I will also be offering services to edit resumes…I worked with resumes for two years and it’s something I actually enjoy doing. I know that other services out there charge an arm & a leg…I’ll only take a finger. This website will be more professional, organized & open to questions. I will also try to have interviews and guest blogs with real professionals in the HR and other fields. This site will be shaped based YOUR needs so spread the word…and start getting questions in.
If you want to help with the funding of either of these sites, email me and I’ll give you the Paypal info. What I really need will be word of mouth advertising once the sites are up & running.

**There was a pic here but a bunch of whiners said it made them dizzy so I took it down**
I found my flash drive with all of my pix…I found some pictures I didn’t even realize I had…and pictures from old high school days (1999-2003)…Pictures of my brother when he was a baby…But one picture truly hit home, with everything that’s going on in my life right now…and the fact that I’m beginning a new chapter in my life in less than a week…It’s time to look back one more time…make peace…and move on.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
