Time Management Tips 2
HAPPY AUGUST! Woo! It’s finally a new month, and I’m almost out of one of my most frustrating classes (so far) in grad school. It’s the final week, and I have only TWO more assignments due. Then I get a whole week off! I can hardly stand the excitement. I know I’ve previously said that July was crazy, but July will be chill compared to August, y’all. My time management skills are going to be […]

Time Management for Dummies (Me)


schedules, jobs, to-dos 1
Happy Wednesday! It’s been a long week already and I’m so glad it’s all downhill from here. My schedule feels crazy! I don’t know how people with more than me on their schedules do it. I had a long, long day today with a job interview. And tomorrow, and Friday, too. And probably next week. But that is next week Jenna’s problem, haha. I’m struggling for sure these days. My schedule is planned out from […]

Schedules, Jobs, and To-Dos, Oh My!


busy bee 2
Holy crap. It’s Thursday. Take a seat and enjoy yourself. I can’t handle how fast time is passing, but what can you do? I’ve been back at work this week, with a class winding down, and the still pretty new roommate and the time for working out is ever so fleeting…but! I think I’m at my best when I’m busy. It’s tough to establish the plans I need to keep on track, but once things […]

Busy Bees Make More Honey, Brotha



routine, routines, list, habit 3
Happy Friday, folks! The week’s out and I’m in, doing my thing, as the case may be. My routine is shaky right now, I have a new person at home, exploring the next level of our relationship. I’ve also been sick for the past 2 weeks, so I’ve been resting up, working on schoolwork, writing, and catching up on Supernatural with the fave. My head still feels a bit like it’s underwater, but it’ll do. […]

Routine is What You Make It (Usually)


effort, friendship, relationships 7
Relationships are tough. Is it easy for you to make friends? As an adult, I’ve found that it’s pretty tough to make new friends. I’m a friendly person by nature! However, where, as a child, I could just make friends on the daily just by doing my normal activities, as an adult I have to go out specifically with the intention of making new friends more often than not. Further, the friendship that I’ve already established […]

Friendship: Responsibility for your Relationships


city, NYC 4
  It’s been both a long and short month this month, and I’ve been a bit spotty in some areas (cough, cough–sorry) because I just have had a lot going on, of course. However, it’s a new month, and a new season is starting…time for new beginnings! A Summer of Change, if you will. Change can be terrifying, but it can also be AMAZING. I think these seasons happen for everyone periodically, a time where […]

Summer of Change



8
I had an audition today, so I was up bright and early to get ready and head to that. It’s kind of nice because I definitely feel like I’m making headway there–after a long while where I couldn’t go to a lot of auditions it’s just nice to be able to do some shooting and start getting back into it. Recently, I also got an email from The Voice, inviting me to come back and […]

Dreaming Despite Fear


I taught myself to knit a few years back. I decided I wanted to learn, bought a bunch of supplies, and watched YouTube videos until I could knit a scarf. I knitted that scarf, and promptly put down my needles and never picked them up again. Occasionally, I remember that: “Hey! I can knit!” and that’s pretty much the end of that. I’ve always been one to have a lot of things going on at […]

Idle Hands


  It’s another Monday, folks, and everything that goes along with that. Honestly, I work 7 days a week on various projects, for the most part, but I still like to keep things organized by the work week. Last week, I wrote about why I quit my job with the government. These days, I’m trying to gain some more traction in more what I want to do with my life, which is unfortunately not so […]

The Way From Here



1
When I was a kid, I was poor. People often don’t understand exactly the depth of what I mean when I say that, so let me clarify: VERY poor. Homeless poor. No utilities poor. In shelters poor. I was small, and helpless to do anything about it, ruled by the adults in my life. More than once, we were evicted, and my mother hid it from me because she “knew I would be upset”. SO–when […]
