No Worries

Most people I know worry more than I do. I’m generally not a worrier. In fact, when problems come along, I probably don’t worry enough about them. But maybe that’s a good thing. It’s not that I don’t get stressed out over stuff. If you’ve been reading this blog for just about any length of … Continue reading No Worries

It Pours

I hope it's okay for me to write about all of this. I'm not asking permission from anyone. I mean, I know it's okay for me to write about this stuff as far as my typical readers are concerned. The thing is, all of this stuff is making me feel anxious. Anxiety is not a … Continue reading It Pours

In the Still of the Night…

I can't sleep. I don't have nights like this very often these days. Once upon a time, I dealt with insomnia like it was my job. And I blamed it on my job. That's because, once upon a time, I worked as a night-time residential counselor at a group home. Part of the job involved … Continue reading In the Still of the Night…

Mostly, those complaints were based on a job that I despised. But those complaints on my blog bled over into Facebook status … Continue reading Feeling the Burn

Being an adult sucks. Sorry if that offends some of you, but it does. Sometimes, when I hang out with friends, I'm privy to the complaints of their children. Small things like, "I don't want to go to school," or "I can't figure out this math problem." When I was their age, I remember having … Continue reading Adult

Worry

Most people I know worry more than I do. I'm generally not a worrier. In fact, when problems come along, I probably don't worry enough about them. But maybe that's a good thing. It's not that I don't get stressed out over stuff. If you've been reading this blog for even a couple months, you … Continue reading Worry

Back to School

Today is my first official day of school (as a student) in seven years. Today I officially begin working toward teacher certification. Not that there's anything wrong with my career as a counselor. I'm just ready to move into a new career that will be stressful in a different kind of way. When I was … Continue reading Back to School
