Rachel Rogers Correspondence

Letter from the Editor.

Beep Beep! Coming through!

You're looking at someone who solved a 750 piece puzzle last weekend. I wondered how long a 750 puzzle would take and my dad said, "3-day puzzle." He was right. Which is weird because he doesn't do puzzles and he is never right...

My family celebrated my mother for Mother's Day. We had a little brunchie-brunch and I even dusted cobwebs around the house beforehand (just writing this in the newsletter so my mom will read it and compliment me later).

Moms are great and here are my top favorite moms:

  1. My mom.
If you're not on the list, you're probably not my mom and didn't raise me.

My mom and sister made me get into paper crafting this week. We are gearing up for an event and are making really cool and really large roses out of construction paper and hot glue and I'm honestly pretty good at hot glue projects. The trick is to not get the hot glue on your skin.

While writing this, I got an update that the bank accounts for our marketing group have all been frozen and our bank person is "on vacation." Suspicious, if you ask me.

I've been taking a lot of dogwood walks. There are a log of dogwoods in my neighborhood and it is a real treat to see them every spring. My dad says I give Tigard Tours. I've been taking people on walks this week. So many walks. I love walks.

In other news, my stocks are basically all down and I am losing my first game in my fantasy WNBA league. Oh, and my coworker is dealing with a nasty gnat problem in her work plants. I keep my poinsettia dirt pretty dry but I still moved my plant further away because I can't risk a gnat infestation in Sparky the Poinsettia's home.

Stay safe.

Rachel

Can I See Your True Colors?
Sometimes you read a headline like, "Oregon State University discovers new color" and you think to yourself, "How did we not know about this color?" because there is a color spectrum. We seemed to have catalogued so many of them (a real project in and of itself) that it seems improbable that there could be more but there are a lot of things we still don't know about this world. Really makes you think.

REVIEWS

Dickinson Park
This is a good park in my very own neighborhood. I found out about it after I moved in and was perusing around on Google Maps. I call Dickinson Park "Emily Dickens Park" which confuses a lot of people. The park is about a quarter mile long and consists of mostly a grassy hill. Along the sides are blackberry bushes that are perfect for picking in August. There is also a playground to play on in you like playing on playgrounds. The park has a great view of the Tigard/Tualatin Valley and the top of Washington County's own Lincoln Center.
Traffic Secrets
We just finished reading Traffic Secrets by Russell Brunson as a marketing department at work. I don't think I've disliked any author more after reading a book. While there are some solid marketing principles and takeaways, most of the book is annoying. Brunson enjoys promoting himself and name-dropping and also seems like he is running a multi-level marketing scheme. Probably the only reason he doesn't scam people is because it's bad for business in the long run. While he might be a successful business guy, I didn't enjoy this book.
Mo the Cat
My cat Mo is a pretty decent cat. What she lacks in personality and warmth, she makes up for in softness. Mo and I have always had a special bond but she has only come around to my parents in the 15th and 16th years of year life. Coincidentally, those are the years in her life where she really started meowing. She used to just open her mouth to meow and no noise would come out. Mo the Cat seems to think anywhere in the vicinity of the litter box will suffice as a bathroom. Her one redeeming trait is that she loves piano music and has always been my biggest fan.
