Did You Go To Graduate School? Would You Do It Again?

There’s a lot of studying going on in my life right now. In addition to my new gig as a contractor for a local government entity, I’m back in school to finish up two degrees after taking a year off, and I’m taking part in three Bible studies right now as well. It’s the end of a long day. I just finished writing a paper that was several pages long, and I loved it. There’s a lot to process, write, read, and create but this is my happy place.

While I thought this would just pass, it looks like it will not and I’m therefore posting my comments.

Hello Again, Weight Watchers…

I didn’t care for Oprah’s commercials earlier this year either, but after some serious consideration I decided to rejoin. I still […]

Binging Again

I had a rough night emotionally and started binging. I’m not going to list out what I ate but tomorrow is a new day. I have a binge “hangover” right now and just have to get through my shift at work.
