Just In Time

So, I think I was able to nip the mania in the butt, just in time. Not without a major blowout fight with Mike first. Totally my fault, I started it, I ended it. It was unnecessary and I picked a fight with him on Easter Sunday. We didn’t scream or shout, no, we fought […]

Monthly Recap | March 2017

I really slacked at writing this past month. I wrote three times in the month of March. Either I didn’t feel the need to write or I got lazy, either way, it didn’t happen. So, here I sit, writing a blog post while I listen to my Discovery Weekly Spotify playlist. Mikhail is home sick […]

Things turning around?

I’m in a zone. Picture it – I’ve got my sweats on. I just got the boys on the bus. It’s dark in the house, the only light shining through is the darkness of the gloomy, rainy day outside. The light from my laptop screen is brightening my face. I’ve got my feet up. I’ve […]

Weekly Recap | Week 09

Although the week is not through, I thought I’d come and write my weekly recap anyway. I promise to not only talk about work. The week started off right. I was starting my own shift this week. I was worried how having to stay until 4 pm would affect me compared to getting out at […]

Needs Its Own Post

So Monday was difficult and trying all at the same time. I think this calls for its own personal post. It started off great. I woke up shortly after 4 am. I couldn’t get much more sleep. I had gone to bed at 8:10 pm the previous night and I felt as though I had […]

Too-Soon Weekly Recap

I’m writing this a day early. I got antsy. I really don’t even have a lot to write about but I wanted to write this while everything was fresh in my mind. This week was pretty good. It was my first week on the floor by myself. I was cleared to be by myself on […]

Not a Recap

I contemplating writing this entry tomorrow evening and calling it a weekly recap. My problem is that Mike is gone, Mikhail in bed, Nick at a sleepover, and I’m left to fend for myself. With nothing to do, I decided to write this entry now. I got my Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify playing and […]

Weekly Recap | Week 6

So, I’ve been doing these Project Life scrapbook pages with the Android app. Every week, per the rules of the Project 52 challenge, I have been scrapbooking one page for every week. I normally do this on Saturday morning when we are at basketball. Yes, that means we don’t include Saturday night in our weekly […]

Week Two.

So, it’s Thursday and I’m on week two of my training. Things are going extremely well. I’ve asked lots of questions that I felt was necessary when things need to be reiterated to the fellow trainees. I’ve even stumped the trainer a few times or had him have to check his answers because I brought […]

My First Week

So, I’ve accomplished my first week of work. We have four weeks total of training. My first week was pretty successful. I won’t go into a lot of boring detail about what happened but I thought I should still come by and write (for you and of course, my own records). I’ll do my best […]

Piecing The Puzzle Together

Slowly but surely I am piecing the puzzle pieces together. I received my acceptance/offer letter in the email yesterday. It included what documents I needed for my first day, paperwork for my drug test, parking information, and my official letter of offering from the company. The letter from the company basically told me congratulations, what […]

Interviewed.

Well, I did it. I went to my interview. The outcome? I have no idea. I think it went well but I won’t know for sure until they decide they’re going to call me back and let me know. You know it’s a good sign when BOTH team leaders come up to you like, “Oh, […]

2017 Proposed Accomplishments

It’s that time when I create my list of┬áresolutions proposed accomplishments. I say proposed accomplishments instead of resolutions because I feel saying resolutions only sets you up for failure. You say you’re going to do these big, scary, audacious goals and then by Feb. you realized you haven’t achieved anything. If I say proposed accomplishments, […]

Pros and Cons

My mother always taught me that in any given situation you can use a pros and cons list. When you’re outweighing almost anything in life pros and cons list can help you decide. I have been very confident lately. According to my psychiatrist, that’s normalcy, not mania. Huh. News to me. Anyway, I’m experiencing some […]
