Dear person going to a job you don't love tomorrow.

By Demo Speaker
Dear person going to a job you don't love tomorrow, I used to hate Sunday. On the worst weeks I could feel it starting to arrive when I laid in bed on Saturday night.

By Jeremy Kingsley
For many of us -- especially those who had lost count of the polar vortexes by mid-January -- winter can't end soon enough this year. But the transition is rarely an orderly one. It often starts with a deceptively sunny day in February. Everybody breaks out their light jackets and starts talking about taking walks at lunch, and then a couple of days later comes a blast of freezing temperatures and new snow, which in turn gives way to chilly rain and slush. People trot out the old joke about "if ...
