    Scuba Diving; and Passing Online Test.

    I’ve wanted to scuba dive since I was young. What stopped me as I got older? Fear of drowning! When I was younger, a relative threw me out into the water in an attempt to teach me to swim. Well all it did was cause me to panic and I almost drowned. Now that’s not to say I don’t go into the pool or in the water at the beach. Up until last year (specifically), I was mainly a wall hugger in the pool and I wouldn’t dare go out too far at the beach. Hell, there were times when I’d start to hyperventilate when I needed to wash my…

    Not So Random Thoughts

    Today was a pretty productive day for me. First I deactivated my Facebook account. I then forced myself to get up early so that I could knock out my household chores. I purged items in my closet to give to Goodwill. I organized my file cabinet and just a whole bunch of other stuff I knocked out today that I felt needed to be done. I hate clutter or not being organized. I’ve taken a leave of absence from school; just a week. My thoughts are all over the place at the moment. At times I don’t think it has fully sunk in that my sister has died. She has…

    2017 Goals

    It’s like the saying goes “write it down and then make it happen.” I’m more of a visual person, so I’ll print this out and hang up near my computer and on the fridge which will hopefully keep me on track. My (personal) goals for 2017…. Purchase a second car for the hubster, so that I can use the van. Start a meet-up group. I had quite a few members on my previous group but couldn’t keep it up due to our car situation. Apply for a part time job related to what I’m in college for. I recently learned that I could work as a “sitter” for kids at…

    Back To School

    *Click To Enlarge* I’ve been trying to complete my degree, well since forever. There has been one thing after another that would force me to take a leave of absence. Those would eventually run out and I’d  end up having to withdraw. Last year it was due to complications after having my hysterectomy. I decided to re-enroll because at this point in time, I have the opportunity to really focus on my studies. I know I cant predict  when something may happen but it’s a bridge I will cross once I get to it.  Follow and Share:

    Productive Day Today

    I took the time today to respond to emails. I was able to figure out some things for my meet-up next month which I’m super excited and nervous about. My plan, later down the line, is to also include those who have young daughters and/or nieces. I really want these meet-ups to be one of empowerment/encouragement not only for the adults, but the children as well. I didn’t have a mother-daughter relationship (growing up) with my mom in the sense of us sitting down to have (girl) talks or going out for mommy-daughter time. That didn’t happen until I was much, much older. I had to run to Wal-Mart last night…

    It’s All Starting To Come Together

    I’ve been doing some major research and planning so that I’m not thrown for too much of a loop. I have to be organized in some way and having a binder helps. Especially since I will be utilizing public transportation which will limit the amount I carry in my backpack. I’m sure the first few weeks days  (of my walking from the bus stop to the office) will be rough and tough cause I haven’t exercised in well over a month….*sigh* Aside from all things related to my organization, I also wanted to start having a meet-up, maybe once a month that would include women that I personally know that have…

    2016 – I Will Not

    When I say the last 2 yrs have been trying. I mean they have been trying. Especially with the  passing of my mom in 2013. During the last year or so, I have learned a lot about myself through different experiences and realizing that I need to break the cycle that I usually find myself in. With that came the realization that I need help. As in professional help. I’ve found a counselor and just waiting to be emailed back regarding insurance.  So with that, in 2016 – I Will Not… Follow and Share:
