LOVE this! I just watched the last episode (ever) of 30 Rock. I can’t believe it’s over… My husband put it well- “Tina Fey proved to me that women can be funnier than men.”

It’s impossible for every client to love your work. So I’ve given up fighting a losing battle and have decided to focus the good. And hopefully, this will give me the time to have a little more fun, and a little more time to say a few more of these. […]
