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…
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
Now, moments of clarity when I started to understand a bit more about the housing crisis. Mood: ominous clouds on a highway. I watched The Big Short last night, on Thanksgiving ironically enough. Why ironic? Well, if you haven't seen the movie (which is also morbidly humorous), it's about the housing crisis. You know, that period … Continue reading Takeaways from the Great Recession
I was here. Probably sweating, possibly tipsy, and definitely screaming with everyone else each time we (frequently) screwed up a play, handed our opponent a gentle first down, or left every door in the house open for the other team to rush 70 yd to a touchdown right in front of the student section (how's … Continue reading Three years ago today..
I have about 10 different drafts that I've tried flushing out over the past month. Each time, I come back to the confusion in my life. Have you ever had one of those moments where, as time slows down and pauses around you, you're watching what's happening instead of experiencing it? And as you're watching … Continue reading Growth is pain and confusion.
Like every other person I know, I spit out a few "need to do more this" and "must do less that" on December 31st, at approximately 10:24 p.m. Do I write them down? Noooo. Am I thinking about them by 11:18 p.m.? Haha. Are these little champagne bubbles going to be tracked and followed throughout … Continue reading Leaving the current
Tonight was my last chapter. The last time I stood with my sisters as an active member and perhaps the last time I see some of them in person. It's weighty, and as my mother said to me on the phone today, "Where the hell have the last four years gone?" Here's pretty much what … Continue reading To my sorority
This will be short, I think. Originally, I was all gun-ho about this timeline I had in mind. Both for my life and this lil' blog. Go to college, ride for equestrian team, have sparkling GPA, get an undergrad degree, go to grad school, get a job, travel the world, make monies, buy a pony, … Continue reading On goals and narcolepsy
