Nostalgia and New Plans: Birthday Post

Tomorrow is my 27th birthday. It's kind of hard to believe. I feel ridiculously young. I haven't had any shift of self-perceived-maturity or grown-up-ness since I hit about 21 - as many things as have changed, I don't really feel that I'm older than that, but that sure was six years ago. Ancient history. 27… Continue reading Nostalgia and New Plans: Birthday Post

Thoughts on a Tuesday: Maybe This is It

Sometimes things begin to happen or begin to fall into place that you just don't see coming. It happens pretty frequently, actually. Of course there are times where being blindsided is a horrible thing and knocks you to your knees. But there are other times when the thing you don't see coming is maybe, possibly,… Continue reading Thoughts on a Tuesday: Maybe This is It

November 11th

Life changes in the most mysterious ways.  Some people have nothing and then one day their dreams come true. Some people are super happy for other people but are also super selfish and either want what the newly happy person has, or want them not to have it so the newly happy person sticks around… Continue reading November 11th

Stir Crazy: a way of life

It would probably be fair to start considering "stir crazy" to be my resting state. I'm not saying it's comfortable, but it's pretty damn familiar. I am restless and full of anticipation, even when there's nothing on the horizon. It isn't the anxious sort of stir crazy, not yet at least, not this time. This… Continue reading Stir Crazy: a way of life

Another Adventure is Nigh

Today is Thursday. I have the weekend to finish packing the rest of my belongings and be on my way by Tuesday. The end of one chapter of your life and the opening of the next is a volatile time. Transitions can bring out the best and the worst in people. Until the past week… Continue reading Another Adventure is Nigh

Florida

It's starting to look like this move back to Florida might actually happen. Life has repeatedly taught me the lesson about not counting your chickens before they've hatched, several times this year. But I signed and returned the job offer paperwork, and I've bought flights for a week long teacher's conference in Michigan in June,… Continue reading Florida

Resolution

It was years ago that I once and for all gave up the notion of making New Year's Resolutions. Of all the resolutions I've made in my life, never have I accomplished a single one the whole year through. And I know that this is common - it's even a running joke. But when I… Continue reading Resolution

Some Things Work Out

Last night was the night I've been waiting for, and I didn't think it was going to happen. Reading my blog for the past year you might think that good things fall into my lap a lot, and for the past year, they kind of have. But I've got 23 years of experience to the… Continue reading Some Things Work Out

The Unforeseeable Future

Have you ever delved so deep into your personal plans for the future that you forget that you don't have a clue what your life will be like? I've been on a steady roll doing exactly that for almost a year now, and I desperately need to snap out of it. All of my life… Continue reading The Unforeseeable Future

Disillusioned

I had the all's-right-with-the-world bubble popped for me at a young age. I can't say exactly if there was one particular moment or event, it was just everything. I can't even remember if I ever had the illusion that life was going to be easy or smooth sailing or full of flowers and unicorns and… Continue reading Disillusioned
