New editions weekly!
In preparation for the Las Cruces Comic Con, I have printed out “The Scholarship Dare.” Just some behind-the-scenes, I had to reduce the font to 10 pt. so that it would fit in this format. Here’s to hoping no one with bad eyesight want’s to read it. :P
Work, by itself, is just a means of making money. The beauty of working is it allows us to interact with people — to meet and connect with a variety of folks. I have met some of my best friends through work. The workplace was an environment where we could learn about each other and build bonds.
Perk at Work is about our experiences as humans. Sure, at it’s core, it is about a lowly cafe worker who chats it up with his regular customers. But they are sharing moments of their lives together, learning and sharing bits of information and, hopefully, learning to care about each other. Is there any greater purpose in this life than to love and be loved? Well, maybe to get the perfect cup of coffee but we can do that while we talk.
