I don't know about you, but I'm not very good at asking for help. I like to do most things on my own and be independent. It's hard for me to admit that I need help. But I'm trying. I'm working on it. I'm also the kind of person that I ask for help as … Continue reading Asking for Help
Life is starting to get busy. I have something going on every single weekday (and at least one thing most weekends) for the next around eight weeks. It's a lot, and it feels like a lot. I read my post about My Worst Semester the other day. I remember what that felt like, and what … Continue reading Scheduling
A New Year, but How “New” are You?
Happy 2023! I hope you had a good holiday (whatever you celebrate), and your New Year's celebration was everything you wanted! It's that time of year where everyone sets goals for themselves and "resolutions." (I say every year how much I don't like that word). Resolutions are "I resolve to do this," but to me, … Continue reading A New Year, but How “New” are You?
Life is a balance. And lately my life has been so far out of balance that I almost didn't post today. But I'm working on it. See life isn't just one component. It's a stool, and if one of the legs of the stool are shorter or are gone completely, the stool will either wobble … Continue reading Balance
Sorting Out Priorities
I'm almost positive I'm not alone when I say ot feels like there's a lot on my plate. I have a lot that I need to balance and juggle. I also feel that once I let one thing go, my brain tells me I'm a failure and I start dropping other things. So then, when … Continue reading Sorting Out Priorities
Last June, I wrote a post titled "Glow Up." It was the idea of doing things that you like without holding on to what people or society expect you to be. And while that was the phrase and the phase I needed to go through last summer, this year is different. See, I know who … Continue reading Check In
Taking Care of Yourself
I can't tell you how good it feels to be on Spring Break this week. To be 100% honest, I think I was more excited for spring break than some of my students. And it's not even that I have plans this week. In fact, I don't really have any plans at all this week. … Continue reading Taking Care of Yourself
It is so crazy to me that we're already a month into 2022. I feel like January normally takes forever to get through. But this year, it feels like it has flown by. I know, for me at least, that this year is already starting out full of chaos. There's been a lot going on … Continue reading Reset
I definitely did not mean to miss last week. It was a lot going on. My whole house, including myself, ended up sick in one way or another. So it was a challenging week because of trying to make sure the house stayed clean, on top of teaching and trying to maintain a balance. But … Continue reading Wellness
A Year of Maintenance
Happy 2022! I took a couple of weeks off because I had a lot going on and needed to take care of other things. So unfortunately the blog got pushed to the side. But now it's the new year and I'm back! I feel like I mention every year how much I don't like resolutions. … Continue reading A Year of Maintenance
