my basic bullet journal

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of bullet journals. When I first heard about them, I was intrigued. I mean, I’m moderately obsessive about making lists and getting things done (Baby Brother is laughing right now), so a way to stay organized and keep an ever-changing to-do list in the same place… Continue reading my basic bullet journal

week in review: turning tides (I hope)

Linking up with Megan at Cleat Eats Fast Feets today. I’ve had pretty productive week. Not off-the-charts, not in the dumps, so it’s all good. This week, I… Worked 40+ hours at the day job. The usual beginning-of-the-month craziness. But I get a four-day weekend next week! Read two books, Trust by Kylie Scott and… Continue reading week in review: turning tides (I hope)

these are a few of my frustrating things

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for random thoughts. 1) Why is it so easy to stop being healthy/losing weight/working out, and so hard to START? Seriously. I lost 27 lbs last year, and have gained all but 10 lbs back. It started with a running injury that kept me sidelined for 3… Continue reading these are a few of my frustrating things

week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the feeling of accomplishment it gives me. Let’s see, I finished the draft of my final paper for my Leadership Theory in Communication class. All of the draft. All 1,500 words. In less than a day. Like, I finished it about 15 minutes ago.… Continue reading week in review: speedos, sugar, and sadness

today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for this bit of randomness. Okay, not randomness. Not to me. Today, June 1st, is my four-year survival anniversary. Four years ago, I had a major stroke, without warning, and I almost died. The doctors pretty much said I’d die. Fortunately, they weren’t the ones in control.… Continue reading today is for gratitude (thinking out loud)
