It’s a very special day — This blog turns one year old today! One year ago, I was dealing with one of the worst weeks of my life. I didn’t feel ready to share many of my thoughts on a platform that was linked to my name, but I knew I needed to write. Thus, … More ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY
It’s the second month of the year, and I already almost forgot to write up a monthly update. I didn’t miss it though! It’s a leap year which means I technically have one more day 🙂 I actually had to pull up my calendar to try and remember what I did this month. It hasn’t … More February 2020 Update
It is finally the weekend, and boy am I happy! I didn’t sleep in as late as I would have liked, although by the way I felt this morning, I could’ve slept until late afternoon! I went to be relatively early last night (as opposed to my 2-3AM insomnia nights), so maybe it was the … More An Overrated Book?
And we are back to Monday. The depression was hitting hard today. I almost didn’t make it out of bed. There are days when all I want to do is sleep… days when I don’t see the point in getting up. I used to be really passionate about my life. I loved my life. I … More At what cost?

To my pleasant surprise, I was able to understand a good bit of it without subtitles! I guess my lessons are paying off 🙂 A lab mate recently … More I don’t wanna do my homework!
It’s been a very productive day at work! I am so close to finishing a paper I have been working on. Next up, making the presentation and prepping! Not taking my work home with me has been hard, but necessary. I find myself more productive during the actual work day. My sleep schedule is still … More Creating That Work-Life Balance.
A better start to the day. Last night, I was able to relax and sleep at a normal time (aka 1 AM instead of my usual 3 AM). And I remembered a book was released that I have been waiting for. The Wedding Party by Jasmine Guillory! I know. The girl who blogs about her … More New Books, Classes, and a Laptop…?
It’s hard to fight for something when the other person doesn’t care. It’s hard not to question your worth when you are tossed aside every other day. It’s hard not to question if you will ever be loved again. You were so close to marriage—to starting a new life with someone. That someone was your … More What Am I Fighting For?
What a mess! I woke up late today, and it totally threw off my whole morning. My sleep schedule is very off, and I need to get it back on track. I used to be an early riser and would go to bed around 11 PM. Now? Now, I may be awake until 3 AM. … More Yummy Cupcakes
He still hasn’t realized it, but his actions would affect her for the rest of her life. Would she trust again? Maybe in a few years. Maybe after letting a few good ones go because she could never really believe they’d want to be with her. Would she be celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary thinking, … More Her Life Has Changed
