When you think you’re OK

In the past 9 or 10 months, I have been happier than I can remember being anytime before that. Things are good for me. Good family, good job, good friends, good extracurriculars, I can afford all my bills including cable, etc., etc… Since I quit my previous job last June, I have tried to keepContinue reading “When you think you’re OK”

One Hundred and Eighty

A week from today marks three months since I quit my job and everything changed. Before June 1, 2015..I couldn’t tell you the last time I was legitimately, not-faking-it, seriously happy. I mean, y’all know. You’ve read this blog. How many times have I talked about my depression and anxiety and the toll it wasContinue reading “One Hundred and Eighty”

On hold.

That’s what I feel like my life’s kind of been like for a while now. Yeah, I’m moving forward-ish. Buying a condo was going in the right direction. But other than that? I felt like I was treading water. I was doing stuff, for sure, but wasn’t going anywhere. And in keeping with this waterContinue reading “On hold.”

31: The Year of Happiness (or something like that)

If you’ve read this blog…ever…you know that me and happiness go back and forth. I continuously try for it and have gotten so much closer in the past few years in so many ways. So, for a while, people kept telling me “You need to read this book, the Happiness Project.” Never one to shyContinue reading “31: The Year of Happiness (or something like that)”

#TBT: A bit of a quiet year

In an ideal world, one where I had loads of free time and keeping this blog up and running was my full-time (or at least part-time) job, I’d have posted a lot more this year. It wasn’t for lack of trying, or lack of things happening to write about. In fact it was the opposite.Continue reading “#TBT: A bit of a quiet year”

(Getting out of) my own way

There’s an underrated movie – the sequel to “Get Shorty.” It’s called “Be Cool” and if you haven’t watched it, you should. Even though he’s extra creepy now, John Travolta does alright in it – but the better parts in it are any featuring Vince Vaughn, The Rock or Andre 3000. Best parts (in myContinue reading “(Getting out of) my own way”

Lies my brain has told me

Disclaimer. This is not a happy post. Or a funny one. If you’re looking for either one of those, I recommend that time I posted a bunch of awesome fireworks pictures or when my cousins and sisters and I watched Magic Mike. I wrote this a couple weeks ago, actually, and debated on when toContinue reading “Lies my brain has told me”

A lot of my favorite things

OK, sometimes I only give you a few links to things I’m loving lately. But I’m feeling generous this time. So feel free to waste time on every single one of these for the next, oh, three days. There’s a lot to go through. Here are some of my favorite things these days: This isContinue reading “A lot of my favorite things”

One Month Checkup

Today marks a few important things. First of all, it’s March now. WOOT. Second of all, today is the day I would be jumping in cold water for Special Olympics but I did that last year and it was terrifying. I’ll stick to dry land from now on, but I still want to be aContinue reading “One Month Checkup”
