Mobile Banking, And Other Reasons for Living

30 Minus 2 Days of Writing Challenge Day 4: When Hell Freezes Over When it comes to experiencing true joy in life, some people have their child’s first steps, while for others, it’s the thrill of skydiving. Me? I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about… mobile banking. If you knew...

30 Minus 2 Days of Writing Challenge Day 3: Temporary Insanity I haven’t checked the other participants in today’s writing challenge yet to see what they’ve all chosen to write about, but I’m willing to bet at least 147 of them have somehow weaved it into the reason for their participation in this challenge...
