I love these:


Check me out on TasteSpotting.  TasteSpotting is a new pin type board for foodies.  You submit your photos for placement. You can pin, tweet, post to FaceBook, etc right from the photo.  I don’t have my own photos there but I’ve been bookmarking (I don’t know their terminology yet) my fav’s to share with you.

See you there. ~Heidi

Its been months since I’ve posted in any blogging.  I’ve had much trouble putting wording and conversation together.  I’ve then had computer trouble with mouse and keyboard trouble, which is still happening and frustrating together me even through today.

I have about 12 different post ideas that I just can’t get organized in my mind just to get out of my finger tips.  I just wanted to let you know that I’m here although confused and unable to to organized a thought together. I’ll be back soon.

I promise. 🙂


Its okay to be vulnerable.

Its okay to show who I really am.

Its okay to be afraid, and get positive about it.

I can become who I want to be.


Dear Friend I really miss! <3

Blogging has been very difficult for me, lately.

I haven’t really been in a shell. I’ve been lost in my fibromyalgia pain and all my doctor’s who think that I should be able to do so much more than I can. Its really insulting to the person who has to live in this body.

I wrote an update at SimplyCarolinaDreamz and I hope to get back to blogging soon.

I’ve missed you. <3

Common Compendium Header

Since recovering from the hack, and moving to a new hosting provider, I have finally caught up, so we can have some round-ups, over here on WithaZ, so you can see what’s going on in the Z blog world.  These round-ups are going to include all my little things, around blog-land, not necessarily just those things with a Z.

What has Heidi been blogging about?

Twitter – What is it and Why?

Online Course Disconnections

I miss Brick N Mortar classrooms.  I feel this disconnection, in my online courses, that I can’t describe. Its like not remembering the professors names, or knowing who’s talking, when I’m reading hundreds of discussions on message boards.

Last week’s essays were very religious.  This week’s are full of non-English names and places I can’t pronounce.

Why I Wist..– A Peek Inside Me

When I first found out about wists.com, I started adding fun things, to it, to give others an impression of what I like.. it was like a way to introduce me to others.. silently. I didn’t do it for gifts. I didn’t do it for the shopping aspect. I did it to share what I like, what I notice, what I see..

I didn’t really look at it as a shopping social network…

Swipe Files Feed Your Creative Side

One of the major benefits, to micro-blogging, is the ability to learn. On some mornings, however, I can get so involved, that I can easily be toggling between 30 different tabs. I never really know what direction I’ll be spinning in.. or what topic may come my way.

It is my morning class, to log onto FriendFeed. Thanks, Feeder’s. I crave what you share.

Financial Aid Fail

I managed back to TTC, to take a number, in the Financial Aid office, again.

The poor lady, behind the computer, seemed as baffled as I was, and much more polite than the lady letting me take a number, like I’m illiterate to read my file online.

After consulting with another person.. come to find out, with all the FAFSA proving (30% of FAFSA’s are audited and mine was) someone failed to have me fill out an application for my loan!
