Vacation Time!!

It’s been a long time! Time for a 50% photo-blog! I’ve been reading at a much slower pace, and I went on vacation so there was not much time for blogging.  Last week I passed my qualifying exam which took a bunch of stress away. I am finally back to researching and getting data! To … More Vacation Time!!

Just another week

I walked out this morning and instead of being hit with the normal wall of hot, humid air, I felt a temperate breeze. Hopeful, I pulled open my weather app to see what the high was for today. Don’t fret. I was immediately crushed. Today, the high is 103 Fahrenheit and it “feels like” 108. … More Just another week

Studying Saturday

Did I ever update that my book box came? I think I did. My days have been getting jumbled. It’s a lovely Saturday except for the fact that the high is 104 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m definitely staying inside. I am studying at one of my favorite cafes (the one with the delicious grilled cheese). I’m … More Studying Saturday

My current read is Tiny … More A finished notebook?

Despite this, I was able to accomplish a lot. I got a lot done at work. My presentation is almost complete (except … More Productive Mondays

I wouldn’t allow myself a break or period of treating myself unless I achieved a specific level of success. That was … More Reward or Necessity?

Re-balancing Life

So, yesterday did not go as planned. I was so exhausted after work, I didn’t have my Chinese class. I realized that I am still doing too much. Working a full day and then having class until 9pm is just not feasible for me. Instead of staying up late doing homework and trying to get … More Re-balancing Life

New Lows…

The depression was hitting hard today. I couldn’t make it out of bad. I almost cancelled my Chinese lesson. The only reason I didn’t was because it’s a virtual class. I couldn’t do anything today. Barely had enough energy to write this. Couldn’t read. No appetite. Last night, I was thrown out again. I make … More New Lows…
