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
When I was a kid things were not so great, so I only asked the universe for one thing to get me out of that situation.  I felt that it wasn't fair to ask for anything else from the universe, because I was given more than enough - a degree, a great job, awesome friends, etc.  So taking charge of my own life the past 4 years has been a struggle, because I felt like people are dying somewhere or they can't get out of their terrible situations.  It is not fair to ask for anything extra from the universe.  So I just sat back miserable for a while and let things just be in life.  I'll just be miserable if I dislike something.
The past few years were a roller coaster, because I just sat back in some ways to watch things play out.  Something happened in 2011 to justify the change in course - my boyfriend left me.  I woke up.  I realized maybe this was my life to live.  Maybe I shouldn't do what others want me to do anymore.  Slowly over three years I started to realize what I really wanted in my job, in dating, and in a friend.  It's really weird, because at 32 I think I'm still a work in progress, but closer to the end goal.
I finally have the job that I want.  I finally have the friends that I should surround myself with in my journey.  Thank you for voting for me.  This version of me is the happiest version that could be at this point in my life.  You got me my job.  You made me feel like I fit in somewhere.  You put me on a list of 25 people who you think are the top community members.  I know there are tons of people that could easily fit on this list.  I know I may not be the smartest or the most fitting.  I make fun of these lists a good deal through sarcasm, but I feel honored and privileged.
Here is a list of top people in my community and life:
Leah Wendleton
Tasha Scott
Greg Hurlman

And the most important Sam Isserman, Ferd Isserman, Kathi Isserman, Nancy Isserman, Rick Isserman, and my slew of Horwitz cousins...I'm sorry if I forgot someone, but you all believed in me throughout the years.  You have helped me through some dark times.  You carried me through the past few years to get me to this point.  We all have light at end of tunnel days.  I think after all the trials and tests I am at the point in time when things are truly awesome.  I hope that I can carry you guys through the worst when you need it.  I'm around just let me know.  Time to go to sleep very soon-ish.  Thanks everyone who wished me a happy birthday!  This birthday has to be the best one yet.
