I Know Now That I Want the Chicken, I Love You, And I’m Going to Do What’s Best for Me.

My face when someone asks me what I want for dinner/when I am trying to make a big decision... Making decisions is hard for me. I have a hard time moving forward when I don’t feel like everyone I know and love is on my side and is 100% on board. Well, the thing is,…

My Accidental Preference for a Hamster Wheel of Stress

I have not been sleeping very well lately. But in particular, a few days ago it had been rough. Our alarm went off at six am and it felt like the middle of the night. I had this nagging cough I could not shake (don’t worry I’ve been tested, it’s not COVID) and it made…

A Blunt Six Year Old With a Master Plan

When I was six, my separation anxiety from my parents was at its peak.

New Years Jitters

It's been a crazy incredible year and as it comes to a close I start to get a little panicky thinking about all of the anticipation that comes along with a new year. There’s so much excitement, but also a lot of pressure. I usually love planning and preparing for a fresh start and a…

Today Will Be a Better Day

I had a rough day yesterday. Domi started his master's program and it is ending up being much more time consuming than we expected. Which means I'm on my own more than usual at work and that was scary. I spent a lot of the day crying. I think I was mostly afraid of feeling…
