Learn to Make Do

I think that it would be safe to say that I am a makeup junkie. No. That is a bit of an overstatement since I don't go into cosmetic withdraw. My brother has claimed in the past that I he would sleep longer so that I had a chance make myself up in peace. The frightening thing: He could be right! But what he fails to mention when he brings the story up is that he still would have slept…

This Years Summer Vacation

This Years Summer Vacation

Three words: Short, single, and summerly (is that a word?). I haven't been in the position to take a trip with friends of SO in quite sometime. With our lives getting business. Weddings have been one of the few places I have an opportunity to connect with some now distant friends. This year it looks like I will either be flying solo or skipping it all together. And honestly, the last option really doesn't feel much like an options since…

Naturally Stinky

Naturally Stinky

Alright, today's topic is one that we can all relate to. At one time or another we have felt less than fresh. Stinky if you will. And in our quest to stay fresh we try all types of things to deodorize our bodies. When my mom got breast cancer I started to take chemical exposure more seriously and the more I researched it the more it began to concern me. One big red flag that popped up in my life…

After Exercise Rituals

After Exercise Rituals

When I exercise there are certain rituals that I will preform. Nothing strange or fancy. Just little things that are there to tell me I did well. And in no small part a sort of reward. I hate the thought of exercising because it just feels like work. But when you sit at a desk from 9-5 you need to stay in shape. And so more work is involved. One of the problems for me is that the word exercise…

Dawn’s Early Light

Dawn’s Early Light

Most mornings I find myself leaving before the sun is up. This is true in the winter months, but also for most of the year. Four AM is four AM regardless. And before I get into a self indulgent and begin discussing the perks of living closer to work I want to share an inspirational experience. This morning as I was driving to work and it was a normal drive. But then, there was the most amazing sunrise I'vee seen…

Pushing the Limits – Attempting More Than One Should

Pushing the Limits – Attempting More Than One Should

Life is sort of a balancing act, at least it seems like that to me sometimes. Thus the name of the site is See Chaos. Really, I don't like pushing the limits yet there are times when it is necessary to put in a little more. Still doing too much can be seen by some as the equivalent of not doing anything, at least in the context on having a life. And this is somehow true. At lest it is…

Meeting Gorbachev

Meeting Gorbachev

Conversations with Gorbachev are inevitably when one examines world history. German director Werner Herzog visited the former Soviet Union's last state and party chief three times with his film crew near Moscow. It was about politics and history, about glasnost and perestroika. The result is the documentary "Meeting Gorbachev." An immensely fascinating encounter between two contemporary witnesses. "He made reunification possible without violence, without bloodshed. In earlier Soviet times, the tanks would have rolled – as in Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia,…

The Coffee Was Defective

The Coffee Was Defective

Eliminate the chaos It is one of those days. Either the coffee was defective or somebody slipped me some decaf. I clearly sense that I have no desire to clean up the rest of the paperwork on my desk or take my coffee mug sitting on the same desk into the kitchen. I talk myself into thinking that I don't have time or energy to clean up right now or continue. After all I have worked all day. The fact…
