Goodbye Hamilton, Bonjour Paris

Hello there, Well, a lot has happened this week. And with a lot happening, a lot of chaos and stress usually follows but I’ll save those woes for another post. Let me get you into the loop: I signed the papers to put my house on the market. My house should be on the market…

One Year – A Reflection

It’s been a year without you. It doesn’t seem real. When you’re busy, the time flies. When you’re busy, the mind wanders. When you’re busy, in a blink, it’s been 365 days since you left this earth. A lot has changed since you’ve been gone. I won’t go on about it because I know you’ve seen…

Book Review #9 – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Hey there, First and foremost: apologies for the silence on here. I always believe that if you don’t have anything of value to say, don’t bother blogging about it.

I’m waiting for that moment to arrive, because this morning was damn hard. I had a pretty mediocre sleep last night, despite being  immensely exhausted. And I woke up…

Day Two of Morning Madness

Hello friends, I’m moving slower today. And I had more energy at night than I usually do. Are these all normal symptoms of the ‘wake up early’ routine? While feeling like I am getting less done than I did yesterday, that fact is inaccurate as I had a lot of time to relax, got a…

Morning Person

Hello friends, I’m trying to become a morning person. I’m not a morning person. I’m not even a night owl, as you’ll rarely find me conscious after 10pm. So I’m in that limbo place of existence in which I basically hate being awake. And there isn’t anything valuable or productive about that! So I’m trying my hand at…
