week in review: in pictures

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats Fast Feets for the usual Monday shenanigans. I’m writing this on Sunday evening, and my internet has been down all day, so I need to make this quick. With that in mind, this will be mostly pictures. Last week, I: Waved goodbye to this cute face as my… Continue reading week in review: in pictures

week in review: flowers and pho

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to brag about what I accomplished last week. (Hint:  not a lot.) You know, this whole work full-time + full-time grad student thing is kicking my butt. Seriously. I mean, I’m keeping my grades up, but it’s taking a lot of work. And my job is… Continue reading week in review: flowers and pho

week in review: mohawks and mayhem

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets as usual. This week was weird. There’s no other way to say it. Monday at work there was a staffing change at the boss’s other clinic, which means The Diva will be working over there for the foreseeable future, and I will now be doing the… Continue reading week in review: mohawks and mayhem

tiny changes, much happiness

I’m playing hooky from the gym today, in favor of keeping caught up on my week. And avoiding people. Also very important. (I’m an introvert. Sometimes people exhaust me.) Last week, I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water…and 20 minutes later, finished cleaning off the counter/rearranging the clutter. Distracted much? Yep.… Continue reading tiny changes, much happiness

week in review: win some, lose some

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. Not sure what I accomplished this week, to be honest. Let’s see. I ate a lot of salad (which I forgot to take pictures of). Cooked zoodles with veggies and spaghetti sauce. Going meatless for the day, apparently, and possibly most of… Continue reading week in review: win some, lose some

making paper

…or “paper,” as Baby Brother says. (Trust me, you can just about see the air quotes when he says it. I don’t know why he even bothers to react to anything I do. He’s never going to understand me.) Anyway. So, as a former environmental biology major, you’d assume that recycling was pretty important to… Continue reading making paper

changing my focus

I’ve been doing some thinking this past week. A little bit scary, I know, but it’s a good thing. Right now my life consists mainly of juggling school, work, and a few other random bits and pieces. That’s not good enough for me. Instead of floundering randomly, I want my life to have more focus.… Continue reading changing my focus
