Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog

I don’t like to own tons of things really.  I don’t need stuff in my life.  I’d rather collect solid awesome friends and people in my life.  So I keep telling people I had a bad year obviously.  2011 was the worst year ever.  I feel incredibly bad because a lot of people helped me out in amazing ways in my time of need last year.  The holidays to me have just not been right for a long time.  I never liked Valentine’s Day it has always felt like the most miserable time of the year.  The reason being I just felt under appreciated for such a long time.  Thinking about the under appreciation I feel better when someone tells me how awesome I am.  People don’t say that enough in my opinion, so for those people who I feel are close enough to me and I want to offer a service.  I want people to send me there address in email, on facebook, or on twitter.  I want to write appreciation cards for all the people that matter.  Some people outright I will just ask and some people you can just send me your address straight off the bat.  I am going to purchase some blank cards and put out the effort to let people know within the next month or so that they matter in my life and why.

Also, as an addition for those of you considering getting me a birthday card or a present in my family or friends.  Do me a favor do the same for me or at least add on something silly as a present.  I don’t need a new book or a giftcard or a new piece of electronic equipment.  I just want to know why I’m important to you.  What I’m going to do is collect all these cards and keep them for the future.  For days that I’m down for rough times I am going to pull out these and look at them.  I know it’s difficult to write a paragraph to someone that’s emotionally charged, but it means 10x more to me than actually giving me a dvd.  If this is hard for you maybe do something else make me something cool do it in your own way.  I don’t need you to spend any money on me.  All I need to know this year is that people care.  That’s the kind of year I need to have this year.  Thank you again for all your devotion and support.  This is not a forced task.  I would just appreciate it a lot Smile

"I want to write appreciation cards for all the people that matter."

-- What a great idea. I have a feeling if you stay up on this, regardless if people send you things or not, your actions are going to return a LOT OF GOOD in your life. :)
