New battery, new perspective
Wednesday, January 13, 2016      2 comments

The battery on my Spark Activity Tracker beeped red last night. Since it has been about a year since I last had to change my battery, I couldn't quite remember how to do it. I struggled and twisted and turned until my fingers were as red as the ... Read more
Dear Motivation, it's me, Exhausted. Are you there?
Friday, January 27, 2012      1 comments

A little over a year ago I was completely unemployed. Mostly. I was working very part time (6-8 hours a week). I finally found a job that sounded great on paper. I sold advertising space in national magazines. Fancy! But it turns out that i... Read more

I started blogging about being exhausted. I'm always so tired and I have no idea why. But it's Friday--I don't want to be all "blah" and miserable on a Friday. Fridays are good days. No, they're GREAT days! Today is the birthday of one of m... Read more

For those who don't know, I hate my job. It's a terrible place to work, my boss is a jerk, and I really just don't like the work I'm doing. I am obviously not a sales person and I'm OK with that. I'm a creative person. I like that part of me a l... Read more
I have no idea what I'm doing (suggestions welcome)

I've been at my new job for a few weeks now. Still not particularly loving it. I suppose not particularly hating it. Hating the toxic environment, but not so much the job. Know why? Because I have no idea what I'm doing! Yesterday was my fi... Read more

As many of you know, i have been unemployed for several months now. After graduating, I had a heck of a time finding a job. Well, that's only partially true. I was working really, really part time, but had no luck with any career prospects. I'm ... Read more

"You can't escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today." - Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President That was my Spark Quote of the Day today. Yes, I know I've received it before, but I obviously never wrote anything about. Mind yo... Read more
Where do I go from here?

I feel lost today. Kind of like a compass too close to a magnet, spinning out of control. As part of the Spark Team "20-somethings with 50-99 pounds to lose," we were given a mini challenge: reflect on the past month and re-evaluate your go... Read more

It's time I admit this: my husband and I are not doing well financially. At all. If you look in our fridge, you will see mostly space. (it's clean, but still empty). Our freezers are in the same state (who would have thought it would be tha... Read more
Why can't we choose our families?

For as long as I can remember, my mother always told me, "We strike out at the ones we love the most because we know they will forgive us." I don't remember where I heard or read it, but that's a horrible attitude to have. Just because some... Read more

I have an addictive personality. I know this. It is most evident in my desire for food, or namely, salty snacks (read: chips, Dorittos, movie theatre popcorn, cheese puffs, but not really pretzels; those I could do without). Nat... Read more

You know that feeling when you've been walking blindly, arms outstretched, feeling around in hopes that you are going in the right direction? You don't really know where you are, although you can feel things along the way (the burning heat of a ... Read more
Starting over
Friday, March 19, 2010      3 comments

I feel like I start over a lot. Of course, I'm sure a lot of people start over repeatedly. But nevertheless, here I stand again: a little hunched over, tummy pooched out a little too much, head bobbing up and down from exhaustion, feel... Read more
Hiding behind the little girl
Sunday, September 06, 2009      1 comments

I am a proud middle child. I often add neglected, partly to be funny, partly because it's true, and now mostly out of habit. I have an older sister who thrives on attention. I have a younger brother who, although isn't as vocal, you would... Read more
