Day One
Friday, May 27, 2016      1 comments

Today has been a good day. I like the routine of going to work, going to the gym, and coming home. I like that my friends and I can make plans, and actually keep them. I like knowing that I'll have time after work to cook supper. The... Read more
So. Many. Changes.
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      2 comments

Wow. I don't do gradual changes, apparently. Change 1: New Job! I got the job I wanted, and I love it. My coworkers and supervisor are awesome, and I get to help students on a daily basis. Granted, students and parents can sometimes be... Read more
A Good Few Weeks

Wow. It has been a long few weeks. But those weeks have been good ones. Really good. I did gain some weight back. But I graduated college! I have my Bachelor degree, now! I'm applying to be a substitute teacher in the school district ... Read more
Pre-Finals Hibernation
Friday, December 04, 2015      1 comments

It is that time of the semester. Time to stock up on healthy food that can be cooked in a hurry. Time to make sure all the fuzzy blankets are clean. Time to make sure that my computer is up to date, so there are no interruptions while I'm try... Read more
Not-So-Zen Monday
Monday, November 16, 2015      1 comments

Well, I started my morning by finding what looks like termite sign, and finding out that the sink disposal is broken. (Yes, it's plugged in. I checked.) So, I have a lot to do, today, and I can't do very much of it, because I have to wait... Read more
Saturday Zen

Now that my cold has cleared up, I'm really enjoying myself. This morning, it took me a while to get going, so I just curled up on the couch with my dog, a pot of tea, and the newspaper. As the sun rose higher, and the sunrise colors faded, br... Read more
Fall Cleaning?
Friday, November 13, 2015      6 comments

So, long story short, my doctor and I agreed to increase my anti-depressant dose. For the first week, I felt the same. I thought, "Wow. I don't feel any different. Is it working?" The second week, I felt very different, and not in a good way... Read more
Sunday Retreat

I love my life, but it's been pretty stressful, lately. Between classes, work, and plans to buy a house this spring, it's both wonderful and hectic. So, I'm giving myself the day off. I'll still take care of myself and Daisy, tidy up after... Read more
A Grey, Windy Saturday
Saturday, October 03, 2015      1 comments

Long time, no blog, huh? That's because I have cyclical depression, and my doctor had to readjust my medication, and I went back to therapy. I'm slowly improving, and have managed to mostly keep my head above water, this time. I'm back to actu... Read more
A Walk in the Park
Thursday, March 26, 2015      1 comments

I didn't manage to take the dog to the park, today. Mostly because I'm exhausted. Heh. I love thunderstorms. I always find them both relaxing and exhilarating. I've been wanting a good spring thunderstorm ever since the snow melted. Let's ... Read more

Took a nice long walk today, around the pond. It was quite cloudy and brisk. I kind of wished I'd thought to bring a hat. ... Read more

Happy Saturday! I love this little creek. It meanders every which way, and is accentuated by gorgeous gnarly tree roots. Daisy loves to leap across it (usually without... Read more

I'm back to being myself! I'm mostly recovered from too much social time, and and returning to my routines. Routines help me remember to work out, and keep my house clean. Also, Happy First Day of Spring! It's quite cloudy where I am, and a... Read more
After-Birthday Recovery
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      0 comments

I'm not a terribly social person, so birthday celebrations wear me out. That said, I had a great time! I really do have the best mom and stepdad a girl could ask for. Also, I had chocolate cake for breakfast this morning. I regret nothing. ... Read more
Happy Birthday to me!
Tuesday, March 17, 2015      1 comments

Yes, it is St. Patrick's Day, but to me, it's just my birthday. (Also, there's a running gag in my family that I'm actually a leprechaun. I mean, my family is Scots-Irish, I was born on St. Pat's Day, my favorite color is green, I'm short, and... Read more
