Nearly 3 weeks into 2018 and I’m working steadily to achieve my goals. Continue reading “2018: Let’s Continue”
Lydia Martin said in season 3 that “A lot can happen in one night”. Well, a lot can happen in four months.
Tomorrow is the last day of this impossible year, and I’m waiting for 2017 with a mixture of hope and trepidation. This year I’ve learned that there are times when I must let things be, and other times when being quiet simply won’t do. In the last few weeks, I’ve really felt this need for change in my life. Granted, I’ve felt this before. In fact, I believe I’ve blogged about it. But this time it’s different. This time there’s a pulling in my gut, a nagging that won’t go away. There’s an odd sense of urgency regarding my writing and my other creative endeavors.
I increasingly find myself practicing self-preservation. It often feels like I’m treating myself like a child.

In my mission to find an app that reminds you to drink tea, I found an app called “7 cups of tea” that offers you an anonymous way to talk to someone about anything you may be anxious about. Continue reading “Getting a Grip on my Anxiety”
The past couple of days have reminded me how asking really does get you far.
I have never felt so optimistic about a new year before. It’s like I’ve taken off a really old pair of my glasses and put on the pair I have now (or the new pair that will be ready for pickup in two weeks). Continue reading “2015”
I look forward to December every year. Not only is the month of my birthday, but it’s carries my favorite holiday: Christmas. Every December is a month of celebration, not only for my birthday and Christmas, but because school’s done, I have more free time to write, and I have extra hours to catch up with my friends. This December was completely different .
