Sleep has been evading me recently. Despite the fact that I wake up every morning at 5:30 and am doing either strength or cardio workouts every day I seem to be sleeping rather lightly and having countless odd dreams. Then I wake up feeling like a rock, drink a matcha latte, and promise myself I'll … Continue reading Deep sleep, where art thou?
No really. Don't let anyone tell you differently.
I've decided that the way to feel like you have the best life ever is to go with the flow. Go with the flow of thoughts, feelings, and emotions. All in one day I'm crying about so and so's harsh comment, whining about a 90 on my exam, and stressing about the pace of work … Continue reading Best Life Ever

I made my first public appearance today since my city enacted its shelter in place order. You heard right. Other than two socially distanced church services, I have not gotten out of my car and entered a public building in 2.5 months. I haven't even entered a grocery store.
In the 5 minutes that it takes me to walk to the community mailbox tower and back I could already feel a full body sweat breaking out. It's a blood blistering 95 degrees here already and I kid you not if feels as if I have walked into an oven every time I step out … Continue reading Coronatine Adventures – “Big, fat life lemons” (Wednesday, May 20th)
It's such a nice day out today. Although to be honest... even when it rained the last few days it still seemed nice out. I wrapped up my first two prerequisite classes (Anatomy & Physiology and General Psychology) last week which has been blessings on blessings. It felt good to complete my first semester on … Continue reading Coronatine Adventures – “The sun is shining” (Monday, May 18th)
