"I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship."
- Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott is still one of my favorite authors. Little Women is one of very, very few books that I have read more than once. I have read it cover-to-cover at least three times. There is still so much to learn from Jo and the other March sisters. Alcott always gives me inspiration. Needed this quote as I ready my ship to sail.

Like having a virtual watercooler chat - with visuals. Great tool for brainstorming, planning events or discussing ideas with people you don't get to see very often. Will be playing around with this soon.

+English Atkins I know exactly what you mean. When Google got rid of the old G+, they really upset a lot of people, and things were never the same after. I've always been the eternal optimist, but even I just don't find anything of interest here anymore. I tried with the photographers, but 75% of them are only looking for publicity, and the content marketers are in a little clique all their own, so where does that leave the old diehards like you and I? I wish I had the talent and the resources...I'd start up another S.M. platform and draw the old
G+ users back in. It looks as if maybe the naysayers were right when they'd always post about the death of G+....

Texans leading the way for ... grammar??
C'mon, y'all! Now y'all have to admit that we Texans have been pretty darn smart about a logical and useful word for second person plural in English. Guess it's because we are so close to Mexico. The Spanish language has THREE options for second person plural - ustedes (most common) and vosotros/as (for fancy folks in Spain, Argentina and Chile). But we Texans are much more pragmatic. We'll stick with just plain ol' y'all. Hope y'all find our contribution to the English language helpful. :-)
English has no standard second-person plural word, and it’s time for that to change.

Use it for collaboration on web work and articles. Keeps hangouts from getting cluttered and makes it easier to keep track of posts. But yes, it needs work.

I have learned a lot from +martin shervington. Martin, +Mia Voss , +Christine DeGraff and +Paul Simbeck-Hampson were my first mentors on Google Plus when I had no idea what I was doing. They made it fun (and I need to get into the fun again). If you are wanting to create engaging content, build or grow an audience for your service or product, you should check out Martin's Plus Your Business Marketing Agency and Academy. You will laugh and learn a lot from Martin and all of his followers. He is very accessible and extremely knowledgeable about all things Google and Social.

Wow. This quote hit me like a freight train. Seems that I can never catch a breath and am always tired. I've felt this way for at least the past 6 months. Can't keep up. I'm ready to jump from this merry-go-round.

Anybody have any tips for slowing down, being present, living with less and with purpose?  I'd love to hear them.

Story
Tagline
English Atkins is a Latin American media strategist by day, bookworm and tech geek in her free time.
Introduction
Single mom of an awesome 9-y-o son. Digital enthusiast, Chrome/Android/Google addict. Texan by birth, Latina en la corazón. Ironically, my name is English Atkins, but I have my degree in Spanish from Texas A&M.  Being bilingual and loving the Latin culture has led me to an exciting career and amigos fantásticos. Aggie fan during football season. Fiscal conservative, compassionate Christian who is pulled to the left on some social issues. When I'm not working or goofing around on the Internet you'll find me near the closest body of water or with my nose in a book - or both.

The freshest, most delicious Chinese food I have ever eaten. We eat here at least once a week. Try the fried fish (with sauce or with jalapeños and garlic); the mustard greens w' tofu; the sesame cakes; the fried pork chops with jalapeños; the Chinese broccoli; any of the soups. My advice is to look at the food people are ordering around you and ask for whatever looks good. Get outside of your comfort zone and be amazed!

My son has become a different person since participating in Sun Lee Taekwondo. He is more disciplined both at home and at school. The after school program is fantastic and my son usually comes home with his homework completed. The emphasis that the school places on personal responsibility, self-control, respect of parents/elders is really making a difference in my son. Master Jason and the other instructors treat you like family and you can tell that they truly care for their students and want them to succeed in life. I highly recommend Sun Lee.

Dr. Harrington is fantastic with children. The staff is very friendly and they offer lots of nice services - free Starbucks coffee while you wait, other concierge services. However, if you need to watch your finances, be warned that their accounting office is unorganized at best and fraudulent at worst. Get quotes and pre-determination in writing before committing to treatment. The cost their business manager estimated I would have out-of-pocket after insurance was only 40% of the cost that I ended up being charged. I had to pay more than double their original quote. I realize that navigating the complexities of insurance is not easy, but that is the business manager's job. Not being able to provide estimates within +/- 15% should be unacceptable. The runaround played between their accounting office and my insurance company cost me a very unwelcome financial hit at the end of the year.
