Taking A Step Back

Taking A Step Back

December 7, 2020 • Life, Mental Health

The past several weeks I’ve been unintentionally on social media a lot less than I normally am and it’s been amazing. Ever since the pandemic started, I found myself on social media all the time because it was something to do, and because there was so much being shared about it. Since then, it’s been flooded with other things that are going on, like the elections and social issues. And it was beginning to wear on my mental health.

No matter what the “hot topic” is at the moment, you’re always going to have people who share a different view than you. It’s so easy to get worked up, especially when you feel your view is the “right” one and anyone who feels differently is “wrong”. I found myself being one of those people and it so silly honestly. People are never going to change their views because of something some random person said on Facebook. It’s a waste of so much time and energy to argue, yet we keep doing it.


Five Years Later

Five Years Later

December 4, 2020 • Life

Wow. How has it been five years already? Where in the world has the time gone? It’s crazy how time flies and gets away from you so quickly. I honestly couldn’t tell you why it’s been so long, but that is just how life is sometimes I guess.

There has been so much that has happened in that time. Most of it is in the past year and a half. Robert and I got married (finally!), got two dogs, and stopped working. So much has changed and I don’t know where to even begin.

This year alone has been filled with so many ups and downs. While there has been a lot of bad going on this the world, I feel like personally, life is going pretty okay. I don’t have too many reasons to complain.


Still don’t miss it

Still don’t miss it

August 24, 2015 • College, Life, Work

I remember when I was getting close to graduating from high school, so many people would tell me to enjoy it because I would miss it. Here I am, six years later, and I still don’t miss it.

This week is the first week back to school, and I’m still just as glad this year as I was the year after I graduated that I don’t have to. Granted, I am taking college classes, but I think college is so different than K-12. Growing up, I hated going back to school. I never minded going to class or doing the work – I just hated school.


Embracing a new experience

Embracing a new experience

August 21, 2015 • Life, Work

I completed my first week of work today, and while I loved it, it’s an overwhelming experience. My anxiety had been on overdrive because I’m someone who doesn’t handle change well. I have a super hard time just embracing it and adjusting to it. And I’m so afraid of screwing up or just not knowing what I’m supposed to do. It doesn’t matter that I just started – I still put so much pressure on myself.

I also have some hearing loss, so it can make it hard communicating with people and that makes my anxiety worse.


Getting things done

Getting things done

August 6, 2015 • Life

I've never really been the 'to-do' list kind of person. Mostly because I just never feel like I have enough to do that I need a list to keep track. I always wish I did though because I just love having a lot to do. Recently, there has been things that have been drawing my attention that have needed to be done for quite some time.

Since I finished school in about mid-July, I've had a lot of time to myself, especially since I had a bit of time before I have school and work to worry about. I've decided since I have about a week and a half left to myself, might as well take advantage of it and be productive. Although all these things are just so time-consuming and when it comes to doing them, I just don't want to. But I do have times where I'm really in the mood to do some "spring cleaning" and I like to take advantage of it while I can.
