    Step Up to the Plate
    During my college years, I played in a slow-pitch softball league. It was a lot of fun and really the only form of physical activity I had to shed the Freshman Fifteen (or Forty). I typically played the outfield, which meant I got a lot of cardio chasing after the balls that were hit over my head. But I didn’t just play the outfield. Depending on the ... more

    The “In” Group
    I was never part of the popular group of kids in school. Not in elementary, middle, high school, OR college. I was always just me. If you’re waiting for me to say that now I’m completely part of the “in” group at Blackbaud, can’t say as I am. But I’m here to tell you that within Financial Edge, you can build your own “in” crowd. You can create groups of records ... more

    Marie Kondo-ing Your Database
    I’ve slowly been upgrading the “chill zone” in my basement. I got a new couch and a coffee table within the last few months, and this weekend I decided it was time to upgrade the TV set. The set I chose is 65 inches, has 4k resolution, and the picture on this beast is awesome! However, installing a new TV comes with its own set of challenges—the biggest of which ... more

    The Day I Became a Professional Sandwich Maker
    Were you an overconfident child? From a very early age, I insisted on doing things myself. Problem was, I was almost always rubbish at them. At age 4, I would proudly brush my own teeth only to have my mother re-brush them because I usually forgot to use toothpaste. It seems my confidence was inflated even as a child. One thing I always did myself was make ... more

    The Right Tool for the Job
    When I bought my first house, I was a single female and had been apartment-living for the better part of 25 years. One of the first pieces of advice I received was, you need to get yourself an electric drill, a good set of screwdrivers, a hammer, a wrench, and pliers . Actually, I believe I was told, tools are a girl’s best friend. I’m unsure if the tools I ... more

    Change is good
    Ah, to be young again. When I graduated from college many, many years ago, I started a trend in my life that has since gone away. The trend was that every few years (2 to 5) I would move. It worked out so beautifully because every time I moved, I cleaned out the old stuff I’d collected. Mobile de-cluttering, I called it. Change was a good thing. It meant I ... more

    Something(s) to Think About
    Have you ever wondered why you have to add a project to the distribution of an invoice when doing data entry? It’s all about the Fund setup . If you’ve defined your funds to require projects on Income Statement accounts during transaction entry, you need to associate a project ID on every invoice, because the invoice debits an expense account (or a few). Do ... more

    Multi-Tools Are Multi-Cool
    I wouldn’t say I’m a minimalist, but I am certainly someone who does not enjoy clutter. However, I do have a large collection of stationery tools—pencils, markers, pens, and many, many notebooks. I own more fountain pen ink than I could use in three lifetimes. I know I should stop, but I don’t think I can stop anytime soon. And who would want to? Especially ... more

    Skipping Past that Broken Record
    I’ll be honest … I was, without a doubt, a challenging child. There are countless stories in my family of the terror I inflicted on my parents and siblings. Myriad tales involve bubble gum. I apparently had a bad habit of sticking chewing gum all around the house and in the hair of my brother. To this day, he still gets nervous whenever I take out the Juicy ... more

    I’ll be back … for knowledge
    As I do frequently, I went down the rabbit hole of esoteric web-searching this past weekend. I’m sure you know what that’s like. It’s where an innocent search for types of bread somehow leads to becoming an expert on 14th-century woodworking. For me, the deluge starts with a spark of something from a movie or show I’m watching and then can lead to something ... more
