Perception.

Posted 02-10-08 at 10:49 PM by nikkiana (Getting Through)
One of the things that has often frustrated me about my job and the fact that I work at home is the fact that my perceptions of what my day is like vs. what others perceive my day to be like often don't match.... at all.

How This Began
