Where I’ve been.

I disappeared. It seems that taking four classes in Grad school is like asking for a kick in the head.

Completely. Insane.


Yeah. Now you know.

Luckily, I have survived. Spring semester is over and now all that’s standing in between me and graduation is one online course during the summer. *Can’t wait!!* (for it to be over, that is)

Anyway, while I had been dealing with loads of papers and finals, I have begun this 90 Day Challenge that I found on this wonderful, FREE, site called Blogilates.  The creator of this site, Cassey uploads videos on YouTube. She does mostly pop Pilates. Bru-tal. I started following her monthly calendars which is set up with her videos, so there’s no need to go scouring through wondering where to begin. The challenge consists of eating clean for three months ( I pretty much have a clean diet, but everyone could use a little boost!)

I’m almost at the end of the May calendar and boy has it been tough. However, I do feel stronger and I have already noticed more muscle definition in one month of working out with her videos, than I did in six months of using weights at the gym.



So there’s that. Working out and eating clean will be my life for the next couple of months. Along with that, I’ll also be printing out a gazillion resumes in hopes of getting a teaching position this fall. *Crosses fingers*


A picture is worth a thousand words…

I have always been a happy person, but due to issues with self esteem and personal insecurities, I have not always been able to let people in or project love unto others. As a Maya Angelou graphic says:


So I made a choice a while back to be positive. It’s taken me a while to get to a point where I can say I’m releasing positivity into the world and ready to receive. Positivity is the key to living a happy life. Change your perspective and the world looks a little rosier. If you’re feeling as though you’re surrounded by negativity, get rid of the things that make you feel that way. Surround yourself with people who love you and raise you up, do things that make you happy and don’t forget to…


*For 2013, I hope you:


and remember what Monty Python said….

Never Forget.


Never forget those who lost their lives nor those who lost theirs trying to save others. Life is so fragile and finite. Let it be a reminder not to lament but
to live life the way we ought. Love more, forgive more, laugh more, try more, be more. Live more. Don’t let your life be in vain. x
