What Did You Learn from your 20's?
This week on GIRL TALK with Melissa from The Weekender we reflected on our 20's.  What was the biggest thing you took with you from your 20's?

I learned how to be independent.  After college, I moved to Ohio and lived in a small apartment on the first floor of a house.  I thought this was the coolest thing ever.  My own place!  But I didn't know the first thing about cooking, cleaning, or keeping the place up and running. It was on the job training.  And for me, the ultimate learning experience.

And I also learned how to drive a stick! :)

How about YOU?

Here's a few comments from listeners...

--I wish I had the knowledge in my 20's that I have now...but what I have learned is what is meant to be will ALWAYS find it's way & does not need to be forced.
--I didn't think that I had a look at price tags so in my 20s I had that same attitude so I was robbing Peter to pay Paul until one day they took my car so I went to my parents for help and for once my parents did not help me. They said "figure it out" and I did. I learned a really good lesson from that!
--In my 20s I learned that it's ok to be single. Worry about your goal because there is always time for a relationship.
--I'm only 24, and realizing just how real those college loans are at a few hundred $$$ a month on top of rent, gas, groceries, cell phone, etc. I have an elementary teaching degree and of course I'm still trying to get a permanent position.
--Don't loan money to friends!
--I learned to not compare my accomplishments to anyone else's.  We all do things in our time. Who cares if all your friends are married, that doesn't mean they are all happy.
--I learned to talk things out instead of getting angry and letting things ruin my day. This has made every day happier!
--I learned that student loans are real, and not "so off in the future".
--I learned it's all downhill after 25 (I turn 47 next month)
--I learned not to base life decisions on a guy. I have 2 daughters and my hope is they learn from my experience.
--I had triple digits partners, thought it was cool then, but now not so much. Alot of women don't take me serious or won't give me the time of day because of how many women I've been with....they think I'm after one thing. So my lesson learned is, don't sleep around.  Even though I was safe, its not cool. They remember.
--I learned the value of patience and taking my time with pretty much everything.

Ice Bucket Challenge is On!!!

Friday I was issued the Ice Bucket Challenge by my friend Brian Coe of the Penguins.

It's a simple concept.  Someone accepts the challenge, records themselves dumping a bucket of ice water over their head, then challenges 3 or more friends to do the same.  If you are challenged, you have 24 hours.  It's all about raising awareness for charity.

Ice Bucket Challenge


Get a bucket of water and fill it with ice.


Lift the bucket...


Dump the bucket...


Feel the chill...


Call out at least 3 of your friends to complete the challenge for themselves.

I issued the challenge to Lissa & Fast Freddie Friday afternoon.  I'm still waiting...

Pens for Plugs



I know you have probably followed the continuing saga of Freddie the pen thief.

Yesterday we came up with a way to keep Freddie from stealing our pens. It involved string and duct tape.
Yeah we basically turned the KRZ Studio into a bank lobby...a pen attached by string!

And now we want to take it one step further. That's where you come in.

Send us your pen and we'll mention your business on the air. It's PENS FOR PLUG!
You send us a pen...and we'll plug your business on the air.

Deal?

Here's the address:

Rocky and Lissa
98.5 KRZ
305 Highway 315
Pittston, PA 18640

*Must be a working pen

*Pens becoming the property of Rocky & Lissa
*We'll do our best to keep them out of the hands of Freddie

What a First Impression!!!
You never get a SECOND chance to make a FIRST impression. How about the way this teacher showed up for work on her first day on the job!  Stay classy, Tulsa.
