My attention gets sucked into things very easily. One of my offices has a giant window that looks over a hill that can somehow make any season seem beautiful. I look out this window a lot. When I used to share the office, it wasn’t uncommon for me to need to interrupt a conversation and … Continue reading If “control = happiness = holiness”, something doesn’t add up
Without going full-out drama queen on this topic, do you ever find yourself asking the question of worth? Like, what is the point...really? I'm having those thoughts/feelings a lot lately. In some cases, it's overly obvious. The point of changing my daughter's diaper is because she smells bad and if I let her sit in … Continue reading But, what’s the point?
I sat in the office of my Ecclesiology professor anxiously as he read ALOUD the answers I had written to the assigned questions. Not really out of the ordinary, since it’s an independent study and all of our meetings take place in his office as he looks over my work. But there is still something … Continue reading What do you do?
I know today is about love. I get that. I also (obviously) don't really hate the Internet...I'm being dramatic. I'm a girl on Valentine's Day, totally to be expected. But, at the very least, I'm not very happy with parts of the Internet at them moment. And, like most of the times when I'm angry … Continue reading I hate the Internet
I had a Fitbit once upon a time in my other life (you know, pre-home ownership, pre-marriage, pre-baby). My former employer gave them out as a way to increase wellness and challenge the coworkers, which was fun. But all good things must be given back when you change jobs.

Another part, though, I think is feeling disconnected from who I was and who I thought I would be. The cliched phrase … Continue reading I’m surviving
I just got pulled into one of many of the articles that pop up on my newsfeed. This one started with the phrase “I long for normal…” and I was hooked. That’s the exact wording I have been feeling this week but couldn’t put into words. Well, that’s not true, I didn’t want to put it … Continue reading I ache, too
I want the weather to be nicer for August. I want the sun to shine. I want it to be oppressively hot. I want to love my job. I want to find passion in my work. I want my work to mean something. I want to work with people I respect and can’t wait to … Continue reading It’s a down day
Almost three years away from blogging seems like a pretty good break, don’t you think? I’m not even going to pretend that I can recap my last three years and I’m not going to try. But my level of life reflection has been at an all time high lately and I need to write again. … Continue reading Here we go again
