I have no idea why I’m so tired.  Think I tried to wear more hats than my head was able to handle.  Too exhausted to list them, but I juggled a lo.  There was stuff with grad school, work, writing, … Continue reading

Didn’t I Do a Goal Post Only 2 Days Ago?

This is really becoming the hardest post for me to write every week.  I can’t tell if it’s because I’m not doing much or time doesn’t feel the same.  Days come off as years, but weeks are like minutes.  When … Continue reading
