Woot. One hour of work left and then I'm off for a week of vacation to home in Michigan, which is super exciting even though I know there are going to be battles with eating healthy and remembering to work out. I tend to get lazy when I go... Read more

Well, I did it. I ran for 20 minutes after a week of not working out at all save for crazy construction projects - and it felt great. And I didn't die. So woot. I feel like one phase of the intense pressure has gone away - and now there's ... Read more

I'm thinking of pulling a Ghost World and just getting on a bus bound for somewhere only I'm aware of. Seriously. Thank GOD for the gym, which is the only place I can go where eighteen thousand people aren't demanding things that apparently only... Read more

Sometimes, the pressure of life and work gets to be almost too much - ...and sometimes, at these times, you're fortunate to have friends like Annie - ...who will take you to a neighborhood bar, hand the waitress her credit card, and say "Star... Read more

*WARNING: I'M RANTING* I had cake three times this week. I blame ALL of this on my theatre company, which right now, honestly, I feel like chucking aside and quitting. While there are 12 of us in the company, everything alway... Read more

Yeah. So I go to work, go to the gym, and sleep. That's about it anymore, except that my "work" days are filled with my real job, plus all the drama of running a rapidly expanding, full of drama theatre company. So by the time I leave, I need to... Read more

Ok, so I've been at work today a little under 4 hours - The first vendor of the day was a jerk who made me cry because I don't have a copy of our privacy policy on-hand for the security badges I have to make. The second vendor brought... Read more

I stress too much, and handle it badly: (From sparkpeople.) 1. Preserve your physical health with adequate sleep, exercise, and nutrition. 2. Value your emotional health as much as the physical, with a support system of friends... Read more

...Wow. It's rough to go from a weekend of happy indulgence back to being on my game. Fortunately, I went to the gym last night and reconnected with my true love - the elliptical. I didn't gain any weight over the course of the weekend, thankful... Read more
