The name of the blog is based on Amanda’s experiences working night jobs. It was always after work that everyone dropped their “work” face and the most interesting discussions ensued. Anyone who has worked night jobs knows that such discussions are rarely linear and the topics discussed very random. After Hours is not a news blog, a daily journal or an overly intimate look at Amanda. It is her ongoing, after-work discussion where random thoughts become essays.

Does she or doesn’t she?

She did. You won’t be able to find her.
