I Survived
Sunday, August 10, 2014      1 comments

I made it through summer school with an A and a B- . The B- seriously annoyed me since the teacher's comment made me think he had me confused with another student AND since I got an A- and a B on my two projects. Rant over. Thanks to the Shoo... Read more

New classes start on Monday and I'll be taking two summer intensives: Matte Painting and Cross-Cultural Understanding. I'll do an art journal for the latter. On top of this I've committed 4 hours/day to do online feature film work. I will be ... Read more
Writing Goals Positively
Sunday, May 12, 2013      0 comments

Ok, I realize that I won't keep up with blogging every day. I am studying for my MFA in animation and visual effects and classes can be demanding, especially near the end of the courses. Classes end next week, and I've already submitted my fi... Read more
Positively Positive
Sunday, April 21, 2013      4 comments

Today I am happy to be me and I see myself achieving my goal for this week of eating protein with every carb serving. No negative thoughts; I'm being positively positive. While I know that I may not achieve my goal, I will forgive myself if I d... Read more
Holiday Stress
Saturday, December 29, 2012      1 comments

I love the holidays, but I hate the holidays. Christmas is my favorite time of year with sparkling lights, snow, happy exclamations as special foods and sweets are presented and consumed with delight, and presents that represent our love for on... Read more

I have fibromyalgia. I try to stay positive, at least in my blogging. It has been really hard for the last two days. On Thursday I was angry and irritated with my husband. I wrote my blog about play that day as a mental break from my mood. ... Read more
Thank Goodness its Friday - Let's Play!
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

Another Friday is a good thing. It means that, for most of us, the work week is ending and we have free time to play for two days. Unfortunately play is usually shop, garden, clean house and do other chores we didn't get to all week. But ever... Read more
Whitewater Rafting for my Birthday
Monday, September 24, 2012      7 comments

On Saturday my husband and I went whitewater rafting, a birthday present from my husband. I'd never been on anything smaller than an 18 person motorized raft and this time our raft held 7 people and we had to paddle. I had chosen the turbine r... Read more
Missing Fitness Ridge already, but love SparkPeople
Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

I can't believe that I am trying to talk my husband into going with me to Fitness Ridge as soon as I can afford another vacation. The scenery is stunning. On my first morning hike, there was a rainbow at the top of the trail! Later that week ... Read more

On Monday morning I returned from my two week stay at the Biggest Loser Resort Fitness Ridge in Ivins, Utah. It was an amazing experience. I LOVED the hikes in the mornings through the stunning beauty of the St. George area. Everyone ra... Read more
Things that I'm addicted to
Sunday, July 22, 2012      1 comments

First I want to say that I don't do illegal drugs and I don't drink alcohol. Not my thing. However, that isn't the end of addictive behaviors. For me, addiction is something that I can't set aside and keep coming back to even if it affects my... Read more
Happiness is ...
Friday, July 20, 2012      3 comments

Someone asked me what I think happiness is. I thought carefully, then brainstormed, thinking about the fine line between happy and unhappy. It is not euphoria or the thrill of a roller-coaster ride. It is the feeling of a job well done. It i... Read more
Too Hot to Move
Sunday, July 15, 2012      0 comments

It has been hot and humid and every joint I have is screaming with pain. I think that I should walk or something but it hurts to move. I hate having fibromyalgia. At least I finished my animation of curtains ripping so I feel like I have acco... Read more
At Loose Ends
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      1 comments

I had planned on doing on-line classes this morning and then I was reminded that the system is off-line for another two hours, so I'm at loose ends. We all say that we don't have enough time for this or that, but it usually is just an excuse. ... Read more
