Momentum

First of all, I am so happy with this weekend. Second, I’m still coming down from the “horse-show high” so if this post is a little scatter-brained, forgive me. Third, it’s a long one. I neglected to write down thoughts for each day- sooo I’m combining them all into one. You’ll be okay. Take breaks…

Find that rhythm

“I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” -Nick Caraway, The Great Gatsby. That variety of life. Do you ever look around at what you fill your life with and wonder how you’re lucky enough to be where you are? I do. Sometimes I have to pause and…

1 week (well, 6 days) and -6lbs later

Willard says hello. And that he’s sorry for always being so dirty when I’m come to see him….. Right. So it’s been 6 days now since I began the restricted diet of all restricted diets. Almost used to it now, managed to only drop about 6 or 7 lbs this week (I’m going to be…

Lessons, Habits, Progress

Decided to take a study break to write a post. And now I have writers block. THANKS BRAIN. We’re in the home stretch. Only two exams left this week- after a quite successful run of five. ¬†Found out today that I got a 94% on the psychology paper I wrote on the power dynamics Eric…

Carrot at the end of the stick

“You’ve got that ‘march glaze’ about your eyes.. its that time of year for you students” Yep. Talk to any student right now and they’ll either give you a zombie-like reply and/or mumble something about “only 3 weeks left.. so close”. I know pretty much all my peers, as well as myself, are pretty much…

Relive

People often say, don’t linger on the past- focus on the future. I have always been one to lean towards the philosophy of learning from what’s behind you- and letting those lessons help you get through what’s ahead of you. There is something to be said for both trains of thought. Letting the past further…

Tuesday night rambles

To continue my trend, check out where I was a year ago! Usually, on a Tuesday night, I’d be in bed by now. But since I somehow ended up consuming WAY too much caffeine today.. I need to do some typing to burn some energy. This nice weather we’ve been having is making me want…

Etc.

There’s a classic Manitoba blizzard blowing around outside, this was yesterday, a few hours before it started raining/snowing/blizzarding… luckily I got back to the city before that occured. AND it’s the first day of reading week…I think it’s time for an update, don’t you? First off, a year ago I was doing much crazier things¬†then…

Before you know it

It’s over. No more lazy days of nothing with no specific plans…After a crazy two weeks of holidays- it’s time to get back at it. Crazy of course being the understatement of the year! I mentioned briefly in an earlier post that my previously organized surgery had been cancelled- and more testing ordered. This is…

Getting back into it

  The past few weeks have been full of long days, and stress. Which must mean I’m starting to get back to normal! The start of this school year is marking a whole new path for me. I have to say, it’s quite difficult getting back into a regular schedule after A) spending half a…
