Even When

Even When

This post is for me. I am writing these words because I need to remember them every single day. Maybe this post is for you too. Even when they forget their pencil everyday. Even when you can’t read their handwriting. Even when they show up and say “Quiz?! What quiz??” Even when they don’t do their study … Continue reading

When you stay

This morning, I got up at 6am after snoozing my alarm for an hour. I’m not good AT ALL at going to bed at a reasonable hour because I am a Night. Owl. Period. (morning people, I am eternally jealous) which translates to being even worse at getting up in the AM. Tuesday was Tuesday, … Continue reading

When nobody comes to your party

When nobody comes to your party

The French Onion Dip is officially gone. The “Party Size” bag of Ruffles are just about so. If anything I am pleased with how that ratio worked out. The dip and “party sized” bag of chips were of course intended for more than one person. You know, a party, as the name suggests. Today I … Continue reading

A year without writing.

So…it’s been a year. Actually, it’s been over a year as the last post that I actually wrote is dated 8/16/14. When I first started this blog back in February of 2013 I was 3 months away from graduating college and I had no idea what I was going to do next. Grad School was a … Continue reading

All the Crazy Things

Despite what the calendar says, I’m pretty sure yesterday was the longest day of the year. However, I probably only feel this way because I left for school as the sun was rising and stayed busy until well after it had gone down. Yesterday looked a little something like this: First day of school (first … Continue reading

Half-Truth, 1/4 Truth, Lie

Half-Truth, 1/4 Truth, Lie

I’m going to tell you a quick little something that is mostly a lie. A half-truth if you will. (Maybe a 1/4 truth if we’re being real) And it’s ok because I’m telling  you that it’s a lie. I’m pretty sure that’s how honesty works. Moving isn’t actually ALL bad. … … … … … Allow … Continue reading

23 & thankful (again)

23 & thankful (again)

Maybe it comes with growing up and becoming more adult-ish…maybe this is an integral part of your 20s… I don’t know. All I do know, is that as of Saturday morning at 7:30am, I had an empty apartment.     And as of that same Saturday morning at 9am, the Uhaul was emptied and turned … Continue reading

Home Sweet Apartment

Home Sweet Apartment

I am surrounded by boxes…most of them not put together. The tape gun is literally sitting right next to them. I am also surrounded by the most random array of things. All of them supposedly things that I need in my new place.  …a bunch of gift boxes that I’ve saved over the last three years. … Continue reading
