Life as I Know it

Thought I would take a minute and get a few things my mind.
School is going well. I am keeping up and my grades are above the class avg so I will take that as a win. Three classes was a little much but I am doing ok. It is odd not being the oldest in some of my classes this semester. Make the discussion boards much more interesting.
The move has had it’s ups and downs. Have 3/4 of it done. I have like a ten foot section left to paint and some wall paper to put up and we will be ready to empty some boxes :0)
The blog is still going well! Who knew I could stay loyal to something for the long.
Being the visual person I am I have been checking out tattoos around campus and have been wondering why people get them. The women sitting in front of me today has a tat that says cowgirls don’t cry. It’s in cursive. She doesn’t look like a cowgirl but then again I don’t know her. Then there is the people I know that just get a tat that they thought looked cool on the Internet. That’s should mean something people….they last forever. There should be thought involved. All 4 of mine have a story. Ill post mine soon and tell that story!
Guess I should get to my first class.
Till next time that’s what’s on my mind!

Jan 24 what I know

Today I know that plankton are the bottom feeders of the world. As I was reading my geology I got to thinking about how a lot of times I feel like I the bottom of the food chain much like the plankton all though I have more them one cell lol.
I have been surrounding myself with people that help remind me that I matter. That I alone choice how to react to things. How its ok to let people get closer to me. Not everyone wants something really.
I am reminded daily that it is me that takes what you say and turns it into what ever it is I think you said even I that isn’t what you said at all. I need to let this go and listen with my ears and not my heart.
I am me and I ok. I am who no ands ifs or butts about it. Letting go of my past although to most isn’t so bad is very hard for me. These walls I built are slowly coming down due to believing in myself more and more everyday.
I will leave you with this


Jan 9 Homework and life

New Semester New Work :0(

It’s really not that bad yet but it has potential to be.  Just gotta stay on my game, I can do this right?  Right!

Last month I went to the eye doctor and found out I need bifocals.  Sign of getting old.  Or as I like to say staring at the computer way too much…lol  I picked them up today and I really can’t believe what a difference that they are making.  I can see the computer now up close instead of having to lean back…who knew.

Still not doing what I want with the water which is my own fault. Just need to do it.  I will get better and I will be stronger for me.  On the 21st I have a Doc appointment to get meds refilled so I went and had my blood drawn for a full panel of things.  I will have those results the first of next week.  Will be interesting to see where all my levels are.

Well Back to the homework I go!

Till next time….


Just a quick update….

I live in Ohio and it is just now starting to get cold and up until today I was not able to button my jacket.  I usually just threw it on because the wind here has been cold but today without thinking I buttoned my coat and WAAAALAAAA I could button it!  I started doing the happy dance and realized I was in the middle of the library.  YEAH ME.  May not be a big deal for you bit let me just say it made my day!

Just wanted to share!

Till Next Time…

I am me

I Am Me
-Virginia Satir

In all of the world there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine Because I alone choose it.
I own everything about me, My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all of my actions, Whether they be to others or to myself.
I own my fantasies, my dreams, My hopes, my fears. I own all my triumphs and successes, all my Failures and mistakes, because I own all of me.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know, but as long As I am friendly and loving to myself I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me.
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do and what ever I think and feel at any given moment in time is authentically ME.
If later some parts of how I looked sounded, thought, or felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which was unfitting, keep the rest and invent something new for that which I discarded.
I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do.
I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, to make since and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, therefore I can engineer me. I am me and I am ok.

This is one of my favorite poems. It helped me during the awkward teen years. Hope you enjoy it.

Till next time…
