I had lunch today with my oldest friend. We had one of those conversations that covered every topic and seemed to last forever and take no time at all. We talked about a lot of things: her kids, her family, my other friends, my family, our heads, the usual things. She helped me figure out … Continue reading Conversations
While I'm excited about grad school, I'm now feeling like a deer in headlights. I don't even know what to do with myself. I have to do this online orientation thing and I'm just... frozen. I don't know if I'm scared, if I'm overwhelmed or if I'm just an idiot. I just know I need … Continue reading Frozen
I am currently celebrating my acceptance to graduate school! Yay! I can't believe it! It's been a total roller coaster of a day. My medication review went okay, even though I was in tears through the majority of it, I survived and my prescriber was very sweet. I helped a friend move a piece of … Continue reading Accepted!!!!
I went to my local DBSA support group tonight. It's a peer-led group that's been around in my town for something like 18 years. I used to go every week and then I stopped going last year. I needed a break then, but it's definitely a new season in my life and it's time to … Continue reading Peers
I carry a lot of guilt, which is actually shame, about things that have happened in my past. It's shame because I didn't really do very much of it, and yet it still drags on me. Some of it I know I carry guilt about. Other stuff I'm slowly starting realize. Still other things I … Continue reading Shame
What's that thing in the sky I see? It's the sun!!! Here in Michigan we don't see it that often, especially in the winter, so it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day. I'm glad because I have some errands to run and an appointment, so it will be nice to have some … Continue reading Thing?
This collage was the first artsy thing I think I posted to my blog. I have posted lots of art since then, though not as much recently. I really want to get back into creating some. I haven't really had that spark, though and that's been bothering me. I don't honestly know if it's related … Continue reading Art?
Well, I went to church this morning and I sobbed all the way through the message. It was about a lot of things, but the key point I took was focusing my identity on Him. I don't do that. I don't even make Him a priority. I barely even pray. I used to be better … Continue reading Convicted
I'm prone to being a "glass is half empty" kind of person. I'm sure that's largely thanks to the depression and anxiety I deal with daily, but I also know that I could probably help improve that if I could stop and show some appreciation for the "half full" side of things. As a matter … Continue reading Choice
My mom got me a new Keurig for Christmas and I couldn't be happier! I have been making mostly tea with it, since I have a plethora of tea laying around and the easy access to hot water is super convenient. It's also nice to have lots of fun calorie-free drinks around since I'm trying … Continue reading Keurig!
