Tidying Up My Life

I am still waiting for my chance at a copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Did I mention there were 25 people ahead of me in line when I placed a hold at the library? SOME DAY my copy will come! In the meantime, I’ve caught the decluttering bug. While confined to my […]

Called to Step Aside

Today was my last day of work. I’ve known this day was coming for a long time (over 3 months, in fact), but it doesn’t make it any easier. In these sorts of situations I tend to get very sentimental and treasure every “last”: “This is the last time you’ll tell me ‘have a good […]

The Joy of Nothing

Tomorrow begins my last week of work. Since resigning from my job I’ve had a lot of people ask how I will be spending my time once I am no longer working. I’ve also heard a lot of people say they wouldn’t be able to do it; they would get bored after one or two weeks […]

This month marks an exciting milestone, as I have finally reached the point of having more books on my “read” shelf than my “to […]

Where I’m From

I started an online writing course this week! Even though I’m already behind on my assignments, I’m pretty excited to “discover the power of my voice.” Our first assignment was to craft a “Where I’m From” poem, using memories that arose from a short brainstorming session. I won’t be posting all of my assignments, but […]
