Life Lessons: Family, Friends & Relationships

Last night, Aaron and I were discussing some important life lessons. One being: That there are certain people in your life meant for certain things – and not what you expected. This includes family members and friends. Now that I am thirty-three years old, I think it is time for me to accept it and move on. People are set in their ways and they will not change unless they decide┬áto do so. Continue reading “Life Lessons: Family, Friends & Relationships”

See, sometimes Facebook is meant for good. Continue reading “Sophrosyne”


Layoff – Day 2

I had a rather productive day for what it was worth, despite the horrible news of being laid off. I knew I had a bad feeling after waking up yesterday morning and around the time of making my breakfast, a silent migraine hit and I knew I’d be down for a few hours. It killed me to text my boss that I’d be coming in late, on a Monday but I couldn’t drive in the state I was in. I haven’t had that sickening feeling since the day of my accident and I couldn’t shake it for the life of me. What’s done is done, Continue reading “Layoff – Day 2”



I’ve been feeling rather old as of late.. I started to run a few weeks ago (eek, almost a month ago!) and afterwards, my back began to ache. I thought it was temporary, run of the mill type of pain and it would go away. It has gotten worse, and add the cold weather to the mix – ah hell. :/ It is most likely resulting from the car accident in July and my compounding back issues, but c’mon!

Great news!

We got the place/new apartment! We found out early evening Thursday but I haven’t been online much since then. Now all we really need to get is make sure of the location of the apartment – we checked out one that’s available in our time frame but the patio is facing the trash compactor. Though the apt is great, the view isn’t so much. They do have other ones available, but have yet to reach the staff yet to find out the addresses. We are also on the hunt for a washer and dryer set – we’re not picky, as long as they’re in good condition and aren’t gas. I’m so Continue reading “Great news!”


Heat Wave 2012!

June flown by and July is here, and the awful heat wave is finally going away, for now. I haven’t had much energy – therefore no exercising has gone on, but that’s about to change. I’m starting to eat better (less junk) and cut out the caffeine, well the sodas anyway. My workload has picked up a bit too, but it’s a good thing. Been fully transferred to my new department as of three weeks ago and it is wonderful. In other good news: we may have found a new place to live. Its not a town home that Continue reading “Heat Wave 2012!”


Selfishness + Forgiveness

I know…. I so know that I’ve been so bad at not writing as much as I used to, or promised myself but things have to change. I need to keep up on it, it used to be my release of stress and now I’m a big ball of unreleased stress.. This weekend was an eye opener of sorts. Without getting in the details: I basically suck. Been a terrible friend; sister; daughter; co-worker; girlfriend. I let all my frustrations on those who I care about instead of working it through and dealing with it like a normal adult.

“Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than bombings or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit.
They are behind all the choices we make.
They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies cannot. Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than fighting with guns or politics or political power. With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.”
-Ron Paul


Long weekend doing things I didn’t want to do

Our front room and kitchen has only the faint smell of bug killer spray, but just 24 hours ago, we had dozens of fruit flies zooming all around, only to irritate us beyond belief. After some researching online, we discovered the source of them: behind our kitchen sink. The paneling is cracked due to the age of the counter and the water seeping into it from the faucet. (We live in a rather old building and it was cracked when we moved in, just over a year ago). Since I’m unable to scrub the area, I sprayed a mixture of water and bleach onto it, let it sit and wiped it off with some paper towel. Continue reading “Long weekend doing things I didn’t want to do”
