Saw this at a garage sale this morning and thought it was a pretty book. When I picked it up, I saw it was a reader’s digest with the story “The Key to Rebecca” in it-what a sign!

BLOGS-don

Considering the irony of my name being a perfect Blog name, I figured it’s time to get this started. But don’t expect much, because I’ll post what I want when I want to. I have no goals or objectives for this, except to avoid my internet games habit by occupying my online time another way. I also can’t promise substance, as I have a feeling a “missed connections” from Craigslist will make it on here occasionally…

I’m looking forward to non-purpose-driven work :)

A note on the name: Got Gumption

Merriam-Webster says gump-tion(noun) is “shrewd or spirited initiative and resourcefulness”. Someone once told me that I remind them of Sandra Bullock playing Leigh Anne Tuohy in the movie The Blind Side. I found this to be a rather flattering compliment because that lady had some spunk, some balls, and some great shoes. So hopefully through this blog, some other ladies and gentlemen will catch my gumption…it’s good for the soul.
