Bullet Journaling: Eight Month Review


I just realized after seeing a classmate using the bullet journal that I’ve been using it for about eight months now. There are a lot of things that I like about this method. And there are a lot of things that I feel like some people take too far. But to each it’s own. Pros…

40 by 40 Bucket List: #23


Last Sunday I competed #23 on my bucket list: lunch/ brunch at The Wick Hop in the Third Ward. I don’t get to this area often so this had to be a planned trip on purpose.  And it came at the right time.  A friend of mines has had a really rough few years. Recently all of…

Low Blood Pressure…self diagnosed 


Was diagnosed 6 years ago with high blood pressure. Done a lot to get it down including changed my diet, eliminated any signs of drama or stress, and semi faithfully taking my meds .  This weekend I became really sick.

Living with Arthritis

Living with RA: The onset of symptoms 


Should pain started years ago but went ignored. It wasn’t until my knees felt like they were literally on fire and I wanted to scream out in agony with every attempt to kneel or squat that I knew something was wrong. It was in the middle of December 2014 that I began to notice the…

Bullet Journal FAQs


July was my first month working with the bullet journal system. I must say that I can see a difference in my productivity. I spent a lot of nights studying the bullet journal and all the different layout designs. But I must say that I ran a lot of language or lingo that was new…

Stand for something or fall for anything 


I’ve been pretty quiet about all that has been going on over the last few weeks or so across the country. I’ll admit, it hasn’t been easy to keep quiet when I know that with each passing day I could be the next victim.   In this day and age too many of us have…
