Quest for Discovery: Week Eighteen

Hello, friends! Not a bad week for Week 17. Spring is finally here and I couldn't be more jazzed about it, even if it feels weird that it is still averaging in the 70s, yet summer is technically two weeks away (if you count when classes get out as the start of summer). Still, it's… Continue reading Quest for Discovery: Week Eighteen

Quest for Discovery: Week Seventeen

Hello, friends! Last week was a pretty good week, all things considered. It was a bit busier at work, which makes sense, as the semester is reaching its peak time, with finals only a couple weeks away. But I'm getting more involved at my job and I'm excited about that. Writing is still going well… Continue reading Quest for Discovery: Week Seventeen

Something really neat happened yesterday. On this new training routine that I've created, I run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, walking on Wednesdays while I do a weekly phone call date with the best friend, while I do strength training on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This Tuesday, I ran, but I wasn't really feeling it. I… Continue reading Run With It

So Guess What, Brain?

This mini...dare I call it a rant? I think it's more like word vomit. Yeah, let's go with word vomit. Anyway, this word vomit is brought to you most likely by a combination of period hormones, the general nature of an overthinking soul and the need to release emotions through writing it out. Ta-da. So,… Continue reading So Guess What, Brain?

I'm pretty excited about it's progress, considering I have 20,000 solid words down that, once upon a time, I thought were complete rubbish, and still over two months to get the rest of the words written, so I'm pretty… Continue reading A Pointless Fear

Quest for Happiness: Week Sixteen

Hello, friends! Considering it snowed both days over the weekend, during mid-April, I'm a little peeved at the weather right now, especially after last week was so nice. It doesn't look like it will be nearly as nice this week, but I'm hopeful that we can soon experience a little bit of spring, instead of being stuck in this… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Sixteen
