On Being a Highly Sensitive Person

September 22, 2014

Note: Oy! This is a long post. (Over 1,600 words!) But this is something that I’ve been wanting to talk about for a long time, and I finally found the right words to say all of this. I’m excited to talk about the Highly Sensitive Person trait, though all research has been drawn from Elaine […]

On Reading Habits

September 17, 2014

I read a lot. Obviously, there are readers out there who completely blow past me, but in the past three years, I’ve read 79, 90, and 102 books respectively. I’m on pace to read 86ish books this year. How do I do it? How do I read so much? I decided to spend a week […]

End of Year Goals

September 15, 2014

I’ve been thinking a lot about goal-setting lately. Most specifically, what goals I want to achieve by the end of this year. It’s hard to believe we’ve lived more of 2014 than we have left! There are less than four months to go until we ring in a new year and I want to see […]

TGIF (v.4)

September 12, 2014

The high of my week was working from home yesterday! Oh, it was just so nice. I woke up at 7:15, took a shower at 7:45, and was sitting at my computer to start working by 8. I was super productive, got to snuggle with Dutch all day, and enjoyed the quiet and calm. I’m […]

Currently in September

September 10, 2014

Feeling… a bit out of sorts lately. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’ve felt a bit crabby lately. I have a short fuse, and I get annoyed by the slightest things. I haven’t been sleeping well lately, so maybe that’s why? I hope so, at least, and I hope I can snap out […]

My 10 Books

September 8, 2014

I’ve really enjoyed this meme that’s floating around Facebook and blogs. One of my favorite things to talk about is books and reading, and anything that gets people discussing this topic is fine by me! I thought I’d take a page from Amber and Nora’s books (ha ha ha… get it?! Oh, puns!) and write my […]

August Reads

September 5, 2014

It’s time for my monthly run-down on books I read over the past month. I ended up reading 9 books in August, bringing my total books read to 60. It was hard to pick a favorite book because I read so many great ones! But I would say Maybe Someday was my favorite, and Code Name […]

August Check-In & September Goals

September 3, 2014

Complete honesty? I had no fricken idea what goals I set for myself in August. I knew I had challenged myself to work out 31 times, but my other four goals? No clue! So it’s not very surprising that I didn’t do too well this month. I’m going to try to be better at tracking […]

On August

September 1, 2014

Highlights of August: attending my first Miami Dolphins football game, supporting my friend as she taught her first-ever spin class (which reminded me how much I dearly love spin), celebrating my one-year “workaversary,” and going on a ghost tour with a bunch of girlfriends. August was good to me. It was fast and busy, but […]

Five For Friday (v. 36)

August 29, 2014

1) The maintenance light is on in my car. Like a proper adult, I’ve been ignoring it, hoping it will magically go away, but it hasn’t and I’m going to have to take it in to be looked at. I thought it started blinking because I needed an oil change, but I got the oil changed […]
