Just thought I'd send out a memo so people knew it was me... I've decided to change my user name, to just my name. I figured I'd make it clear..so... goodbye to slightly grumpy Frowner... Nice to meet you, I'm Rob.

Thank you everyone! I changed my middle name when I got married. It happened to be the same (Shannon) as my husband's ex wife's 1st name

Nice to meet you, Rob! I'm Sasha, but most people call me by my middle name, Ariella. Although I've gotten use to Frowner, Rob is awesome! Glad there are no more frowns! :-)

I was a bartender in a saloon, more or less, for the last yearish. It shut down and I was outa work for 3 months. Now I'm in a place where can learn everyday and I Will have a career. I'm a happier person in a happier place.

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
07/04/13 8:27 pm

Wow well at least you came out the other end of it stronger and happier and with a kick-a$$ new job! I'm sorry you had to go through that for 3 months, that must have been rough but look at yourself today, you're effing awesome and in an awesome place

I believe you can learn something from everything. Kinda like everything happens for a reason. But not. I just think you can take some tidbit of information from every experience you have.

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
07/04/13 8:42 pm

You could not be more right, I always say that to my friends whenever something bad or depressing is happening and sometimes I think they want to punch me in the face but it's true, and Thayer everything is said and done they realize I was right :)

Rob Be Safe Be Smart
07/04/13 9:17 pm

I think it's important, especially when something bad happens or you fail at something to ask, what have I learned from this. How can I make That never happen again..etc..

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
07/04/13 9:23 pm

If you don't learn form it then how can you grow, move forward, learn to not make the same mistakes etc. Nobody is perfect so if we aren't willing to look at where we took a misstep in life then bad things will just keep happening, bottom line.

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
07/04/13 9:27 pm

It is frustrating to encounter a person who is not aware of or is unwilling to see this seemingly simple and obvious concept. Failures in life are a good thing in the sense that they teach us what not to do at the very least. I heard somebody say

Nizabelle Cambridge, MA
07/04/13 9:29 pm

Say that one definition of insanity is to repeatedly make the same mistake while expecting a different and positive outcome this time because that will never happen, the same mistakes lead to the same negative outcome.

I'm due for a drunk nite. Usually once every couple months. Not a big drinker myself. Being a bartender I saw a lot of the bad drinking can do.

I am sure that you have seen the very best and the very worst of the drunkenness spectrum. And I am also sure that you have seen some pretty funny sh*t go down. I love stories if you care to share any!

07/04/13 10:10 pm

Being from the other side of the bar, I do make a good drinking buddy honestly. I'm usually one of the more sober, and I usually know exactly what's going on, in the entire surrounding area.
Put another way, yeah, I handle my $hit!
