Back to school (final semester edition)

I’m trying to psych myself up for the semester. E-port and one class is already up. Waiting on the other one. And I’m still having a hard time NOT feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of schoolwork.

I'm afraid of seasonal affective disorder

I'm afraid of seasonal affective disorder
Quite bluntly put, I am afraid of getting depressed again this winter. I was just finally getting the hang of life, of living without the albatross of depression weighing me down, of enjoying the happy rays of daylight, and now the days are noticeably shorter.

Chicago Marathon: Start Carrel Assignment

So, yesterday I got an email from the Chicago Marathon, notifying me that I’m in Start Carrel M. I got excited that I made it into a start carrel, because only faster people make it into a carrel! I wouldn’t have to start with the rest of the masses! Then I realized that Carrel M... Read more »

I feel guilty when I don't feel well

I feel guilty when I don't feel well
I’m writing this as I’m battling a strange migraine. I was feeling crappy while at work, so my boss let me know that I could go home early. You’d think that I’d be jumping for joy and rushing home to take a nap. Nooo….I had to debate internally and with a coworker about whether or... Read more »
