Sparking Joy in the New Year

I’ve owned Marie Kondo’s books for a while now, but have failed to take the time to read them. I often feel too rushed to curl up with a book. But after enjoying one episode of her new Netflix series, I pushed myself to make time to read. It’s always going to be busy and I no longer want this to be an excuse anymore. I’m intrigued by Marie’s KonMari organizational method because of its […]

Korean Pear Confusion

Are Korean pears supposed to be this crunchy? I’m not really sure–they taste sweet and fruity but so, so crunchy. Like baby apple crunchy or fresh-picked melon. The flavor is sweet and light (though I’m not getting an intense pear flavor) with a water chestnut-like texture. Why?? I’ve had these for a few weeks, maybe I messed up? I’m usually a big fan of fruit but texture really is my thang. I can’t handle weird […]

Drinking Away Monday

Yeah, I’m having a hard case of the “Mondays” tonight. Today wasn’t too bad of day, though I’m a bit envious of my coworkers who have a bit of vacation left. Everyone always seems to harbor way more vacation time then I do–all I can do is let it go and drink about it. Forget them. I never overdo it with alcohol, so me “drinking about it” is a couple of sips before passing out […]

Receiving Some Big Magic

An early Christmas present to myself, some creative healing!!  I don’t think I will ever be able to express my gratitude to Liz Gilbert for her incredible read, Big Magic.  I am about halfway through the book and have received more “Aha” moments than I can count. I find such connection Liz’s words–because they are so in touch with many thoughts that circulate throughout my own brain. She directly addresses so many of my own negative […]

Skipping the Company Work Party

I just want this weekend to never end. In a weird way, it has stretched past more than normal. It almost seems like it’s been a few more days than two. Yesterday, I was supposed to attend my company work party, but I ended up not feeling up for it. I don’t mean to be negative but I am really over the encroachment of my personal/professional lives. I do not want to attend anymore work […]

A Stressful Holiday Season 2018

Whew! I have finally completed nearly all of my holiday shopping–I just want it to be over. This isn’t like me as I do enjoy giving gifts and surprising someone with a present. However, this year, I just haven’t felt it. I have completed the motions, fulfilled my obligations, but I am still waiting for that Christmasy feeling to take over. The holidays have felt extremely contrived–entirely inauthentic. I have despised everything to do with it: […]

Hermit Saturday

Hiding from the world today, writing my heart out. These days are rare and I am thankful that I get even this one. Sometimes, writing is the only way I stop myself from saying or doing something that I truly regret. My anger can really bottle up, bubbles of rage that threaten to boil over. It’s not that I wish that people would do what I say or that things have to go my way. […]
