My 5 am Morning Routine + starting my third year

Today was crazy. I am the only intern present on Wednesdays. So today I was not only a psychologist but also a barrista, snack deliverer, secretary, runner (any time the supervisor called my name), and weight lifter (the board that we have patient names on is heavy). On the bright side, I now make aContinue reading “My 5 am Morning Routine + starting my third year”

A Time Capsule for Future Me

Hi friends. It’s July 30, 2022. I had the idea of doing a time capsule for myself to look back on one year from now. Where are you now? The truthful answer? In my bed, coughing. It’s a weekend, and I’ve read two books so far today. They’re from the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children bookContinue reading “A Time Capsule for Future Me”

Why You Should Spend More Time Alone

On New Year’s day, my family went to Siesta Key in Florida. I’m not the biggest “beach” person, but on this day, I told myself that I’d go for a run and find somewhere to journal. I was all alone here. Just me, the journal I balanced precariously on my lap, and the occasional seagull.Continue reading “Why You Should Spend More Time Alone”

How to Turn a Bad Day Around

Recently I cried in a Trader Joe’s. I’ve heard of people having breakdowns in public places but I’ve never seen one and I’ve certainly never had one. This was a first. A few minutes prior, I was parking in a “compact” space. As I was pulling into the spot, a lady came out of theContinue reading “How to Turn a Bad Day Around”

A New Chapter: July 2022

I’ve had a busy and fulfilling start to July. Let me catch you up. Highlights and Fireworks My fourth was one of the best fourths of July that I’ve had in a while. My sister and her friend invited us to a free concert with a promising fireworks display. Our spot was perfect for seeingContinue reading “A New Chapter: July 2022”

A Vacation from Adulthood

This post will likely live and die in the notes app on my phone, but it is 11:40 pm, I just submitted one of my final exams, and I’m feeling reflective. This past weekend, I went to palm springs with my boyfriend. We fried there. It was 110 degrees every day but it could notContinue reading “A Vacation from Adulthood”

21 Is The Best Year

I’m in the process of writing my dissertation. I’m sure there will be many blog posts bemoaning the research process in my future. For now, I have 25 articles in my lit review, which is better than zero. I had a conversation with my best friend about it. We (well, she) did the math andContinue reading “21 Is The Best Year”

Only Keeping What Sparks Joy: Konmari Method

Good morning, friends. I’m up on this memorial day morning at an ungodly hour, owing to the fact that I have school related stress on my mind. I have to finish studying for an exam. I also have three articles left to find for my dissertation, and those are due tomorrow (I found 2/5 lastContinue reading “Only Keeping What Sparks Joy: Konmari Method”

A Productive Week In My Life: dissertation, working with clients, and school days

Monday Today was a great day to be a student. I only had class until noon, because one of my classes was cancelled. It turned into a “catch up” day. I got many tasks done. I noticed that one of the shirts I bought for my sister’s birthday still had the security sensor on it,Continue reading “A Productive Week In My Life: dissertation, working with clients, and school days”
