My 2 year old daughter tossed out a pretty good one this week. She got her ears pierced on Tuesday, and first thing she did upon walking into school on Wednesday was loudly tell everyone “NOBODY TOUCH MY NEW EARRINGS!!!"

Kids... they grow up so quickly...

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.
