As I sit to type this, perhaps I intended to wait until a week into the new year to publish this? I just got done writing in my new journal and realized the last time I wrote in there was on New Year’s Eve setting up the [preferred] tone of the journal for 2017. So,… Read More Yeah, 2017!
I’m not the best at memorizing things. I’m the worst. But I’ll remember all sorts of random bits I hear/listen to from podcasts while I shake my fist at excel spreadsheets. I’ll be honest! I remember in 8th grade Miss Quigg had us memorize poems on a weekly basis. We also had to memorize Longfellow’s… Read More Sunday Reflections
It’s been dead silent over here. My apologies. I thought that I could still post despite what I was personally going through, but it was just too much for me. So many times I thought about writing this post and the best way to convey what has been happening. I write in a journal outside… Read More My Absence.

It’s that time of year where the weather plays lots of games – do I need a jacket? what’s the humidity like? should I layer? am I going to need to be prepared for anything and everything today. Because of said weather your face feels funky. As a sign of exhaustion my face will hurt. … Read More Notes From a Lazy Saturday
I know people have their thing about Mondays, but Mondays don’t bother me. Tuesday… Tuesday is the one that gets me. On Mondays you get so caught up in the whole OH! It’s Monday Mode and then Tuesday happens and it’s like you need a recovery day from Monday. Tuesday morning is a little rough,… Read More Ugh, Tuesdays.
I’ve had a few traumatic experiences in life: the car door suddenly flying open while your mom is driving (the lock on the door was faulty), horror movies (my dad was an avid Freddie Crouger watcher), and wincing as I saw pictures of my Grandfather’s proud kills during hunting season. Apparently I used to wince… Read More Crab Graveyard.
I know I’m not the only one who can say they put in long work days. Unfortunately, my commute contributes to a good portion of said work day. Despite the fact that I have a commute home come 5pm every Friday, it’s pretty exciting knowing I can stay up a bit later and have a… Read More Sunday Confession
