I’m a C Student and Other Things Therapy Has Taught Me.

“Therapy is great,” they said.  “It will be so beneficial,” they said.  Don’t get me wrong.  I enjoy my therapy sessions…that actual sessions.  There’s nothing like talking to another person who helps you make sense of why that misspelling in an email won’t mean you’ll be living on the streets and jobless tomorrow.  Yes, this…… Continue reading I’m a C Student and Other Things Therapy Has Taught Me.

**Just a warning, this is really rambly and not very fluid.  Sorry all, but you’ll hear why.** Last night, I couldn’t sleep.  I was up tossing and turning until at least 2 a.m. Naturally, I fell asleep JUST a few hours before my alarm was set to go off.  I find when I don’t get…… Continue reading Sleep Deprived Should be a Mood

Starting Over – Another Journey

Sometimes all a woman needs is a long weekend away.  After being responsible for the issuing of 150 reports within a month, I took an extra day off of work this weekend.  Ironically, I’m not exhausted.  Ha!  Isn’t that always the way?  You take vacation and end up exhausted from vacation.  I didn’t actually go…… Continue reading Starting Over – Another Journey
