Some Thoughts on Summer Grad School

Let's rewind to last semester. I was ALL ABOUT making the sacrifice and taking my 6 classes in 10 weeks and graduating early in December. I was positive I could handle all the homework (I didn't think there'd be as much as there is) and I thought for some reason, our professors would be cooperative... Continue Reading →

On attitudes, outlooks, and mindsets

When I was a single mom with a full time job, two very athletically involved kids, and lots of homework from my evening college courses, I did a lot of running around dropping kids off and picking kids up and attending games. At the time, it didn't feel overwhelming. Granted, I was much younger then... Continue Reading →

Realist Rosie

Positive affirmations and personal mantras have never been my thing. I've always felt a little silly (and fake, tbh) ┬ábeing overly positive or pointing out the good in a situation because sometimes people just want to vent and rant and not have cliches thrown at them. Positive Polly is NOT my name. I'm Realist Rosie,... Continue Reading →

New Year, who dis?

I haven't really been big on resolutions for a long time. I break them and then feel like a total failure and it just turns into a spiral of negativity. I also don't do well with long-term goals because I'm more of the instant-gratification type. And all my education courses killed any inkling to reflect... Continue Reading →

One of these days, I'll really buckle down and actually train for my races. Like, full on follow the schedule and eat right and not stress and have a cig or two the week before the big day. I'll follow the plan all the way through the end and not stop training the last month... Continue Reading →

P is for petty & D is for damn.

Not back with a decluttering update just yet. My living room is chock full of all the stuff I'm getting rid of at the yard sale this Friday. I am, however, back with a whole bunch of petty. Shit, man. Seriously, if I acted on impulse I'd have no friends right now. The more time... Continue Reading →

Letting go…sort of

I grew up attaching sentimental value to material things. I was the kid who never used her stickers because what would happen if I found the perfect place and occasion to use that super duper cool Lisa Frank rainbow colored cheetah sticker and I had already stupidly used it on a notebook? I mean, who... Continue Reading →

JuneJitterbug Exhaustion

June is basically a month-long celebration of birthdays, graduations, and other party-worthy events. I think there's one week where we have a family birthday every single day. Elliah's birthday is on the 15th, then just 15 days later we have my husband's birthday, and in between that, we have Father's Day. Parties! People! Family! Cake!... Continue Reading →
