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 →

Realist Rosie

Positive affirmations and personal mantras have never been my thing. I've always felt a little silly (and fake, tbh)  being 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 →

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 →

Sometimes

Sometimes, you just want to say "fuck decorum" and just put it all out there because it's therapeutic.  Because blasting people that need to be blasted eases my mind and soothes my soul. But doing so would be in poor taste and would cause more harm than good and in the end would do nothing... Continue Reading →

cough, cough, cough, get away from me

Everyone in my house is sick right now.  Monika has a cough that won't quit.  Ellexa has a horrible ear infection.  My husband managed to catch that too.  Elliah has really bad allergies.  Caleb and I see to be the only normal ones right now, but living with four sick people and not getting sick...

Currently

I've gained about five pounds in the last two weeks and while it may not seem like much, it *is* because it puts me right under my "dreaded" weight and that is so not okay.  I wish I had more time to run.  I wish I had more time to myself.  But alas, family comes first.... Continue Reading →

Mustard.

I've been meaning to post about the beginning of the school year and how all that's going and my training and my birthday and everything, but I've fallen down the Netflix rabbit hole and every spare moment I've had has been spent watching Dexter with Mona. Ellexa is LOVING pre-k. She adjusted as well as... Continue Reading →
