I guess I forgot to write this on submission day, but it's been all over for more than a month and I'm just now feeling the relief that it's all finished. My university career is over! Wtf?! The last few weeks before October 3rd were awful and some of the worst in my life, and … Continue reading Dissertation Update #9
Dissertation Update #7
It's been a wee while between updates thanks to health stuff and not knowing what is causing me to still feel so ill. Anyway! I've been working away bit by bit and last night I hit the 10k words mark! Woohoo! Then today I started four new crochet projects because I'm procrochetenating finishing the excerpt. … Continue reading Dissertation Update #7
Another Day in the Library
First things first, my last post was officially my 100th post! Woo hoo! I think I'm happy with it, or maybe I believed I'd posted more. Anyway, here's to another hundred. Monday was the recommencement of the Monday study sessions in town. My Italian class starts back next week, so I used this time to … Continue reading Another Day in the Library
First Study Day of 2019

I coasted my way through standard grades and even my highers... in all my years, just off what I happened to remember from … Continue reading Don’t test me!
30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 25
Your Biggest Regret While it's not good to have regrets about things we can't change... what I do regret is all the times in my life where I took the passive route instead of being more actively involved in my own life. Times where I left early to go home and nap (I do love … Continue reading 30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 25
I know things have been quite here for a few weeks, but everything all hit at once; the final assessment for uni, getting ill, birthdays, and working. Everything has been going well though, I spent little pockets of free time in May to work on my assessment so I didn't have to rush much at … Continue reading Tumbleweed
So work, real life, and laziness has prevented me from updating in a while. I have a bunch of great ideas for new blog posts that I need to at some point write and schedule... but I've been holding myself back. Why? Who knows! I've started the 15-minute-method, like Pomodoro but shorter, for commitment-phobes like … Continue reading MIA
Smart and Imperfect
There are many misconceptions about what being smart is. The idea that the grades you earn in school or even university; that they can somehow define your potential, your essence is absurd. You may not have paid attention in school, uninspired and left behind. You may have scraped by and gone on to a University … Continue reading Smart and Imperfect
