Things Are Looking Up!

I called it from the beginning; I just knew that this was going to be a good year for me.

Updates and Changes

Hello friends! Long time, no talk, considering I’m supposed to be writing every day. I am really sorry about that, by the way…but hey, at least my friends on Facebook were getting a little break from me. I promise I will eventually get back into the swing of things. You just have to give me time.

Expectations vs. Reality

When I was sixteen, I honestly thought that I had my whole life planned out. I’d go all the way through grad school for psychology, fall in love at some point, graduate cum laude, get a great job as a family therapist, get married, have four or five kids, maybe publish a couple fictitious YA novels, have a house built from the ground up, and live happily ever after.

Life Goals

The brain is a magnificent organism; whether you know it or not, it has goals that it wants to reach. It endlessly makes up new things that it wants to do. And we, somehow, find ourselves longing to fulfill these desires. You, Barbara from work, and I all have these short-term and long-term goals set in our brains, and we work our entire lives checking each off from the mental Bucket List in our heads. I, for one, am excited to share my most desired goals with you.
