It seems like I should write about the fact that I'm helping move my sister into her apartment tomorrow for her senior year of college. Or that I'm going to a narcolepsy conference this weekend (I'm excited for this - I learned such a great deal at the one last year and hope the same … Continue reading What do I want?
Not long after publishing two days ago, I got my first like. There's always that giddy feeling of someone else acknowledging whatever you just threw out on the internet. Before long, there was another one. More affirmation! And then a third, a fourth - I found myself going back and forth between clicking the little … Continue reading Chasing stats and other distractions
I decided it was time for a change, because I'm not going anywhere for the time being. That means new layout, new post, new tagline that I'll change when I come up with something better... and taking my (full) name off of what I'm writing because, although I'm aware anyone with enough time could track … Continue reading A new look doesn’t change how loud my keyboard is…
That is the question. I have my certification and can include CTRS behind my name, but that's about the extent of it. I haven't mentioned anything about RT here in this space since January (when I was enthusiastically trying to make an RT blog) because I'm not currently working as a therapist or providing services … Continue reading To rec therapy or to not rec therapy…
I happen to be a hyper-aware person and am typically not someone who can be "got." When I gather myself up and decide to paint at home, I've always got one ear and eye on the two doors in our spare room. I'm almost never home completely alone, so I'm always anticipating my mother or … Continue reading Spooked
Another piece of 'art' courtesy of yours truly. Let's set the stage. I've currently got over $60,000 of student debt to pay back before I die. The reasons for that amount are their own story. Had I got into nursing school my freshman year of college, or applied to OT school after my junior year … Continue reading This Twisted Web
Honestly, the lion has nothing to do with the title. Beyond the fact that I hate searching out stock photos just to get some clicks, but I also intensely desire having a visual of some sort (if it's my own). Thus, a lion drawing, sketched from a picture... I did not take. Silent nearly 6 … Continue reading All in Good Time
I watched a video with Dan Rather and Richard Edelmen this week (well, I watched a little bit, but mostly was listening to it like a podcast - it's a bit lengthy). Jeremy Skule hosted the two for a discussion on the current trustworthiness of media. Basically, it is at an all time low. There … Continue reading The Whats and Whys of an RT Blog
I made this to get an idea of who's engaged online in our field. I want to know who's speaking up, who's getting what done - the kind of people I want to connect with, and who know what's going on in our field. Not all of the blogs below are exclusively dedicated to RT … Continue reading Who’s Blogging in Recreation Therapy?
In the last installment of this series, I started the post in a similar identical fashion, down to the header 2 lead-in. You should go take a look; reading it, I want to pat 01/02/16 me on the head like a knowing granny and tell her it's cute that she's just "going to see where … Continue reading Another New Year Manifesto
