What A Waste Of Time

I hate how I waste so much time when I’m off work. I’ve done nothing productive the week, apart from washing all my bed linen and walking the dog for at least an hour every day down the country roads. But apart from that I’ve been sat in front of my laptop (playing Be A Tycoon on Bebo and SimCity4 obsessively) or catching up on TV shows that I seem to have missed huge chunks of over the past few weeks. I might want some inspiration… I suppose in some sense, that was productive. But I haven’t done what I should have this week. Important things like studying for my...
Relish the Valley: Life in the Low Points

Relish the Valley: Life in the Low Point...

What if your low point could be a high point? What if this time of desperation could be a time of spiritual growth and increased understanding unlike any you have experienced before? It certainly won’t be, not if you’re lusting for the mountaintop. The thing is, even when you summit the mountain it won’t deliver the thrill you have longed for if you get this wrong. My life experience has taught me to laugh at adversity, this is my message I pass to all dropouts I meet in my volunteer work , yes leaving the high school is not the best step but everyone can take online...
My Tale of Woe

My Tale of Woe

By now you all know I don’t like bugs. Can’t stand them. Hate them.  Yes that’s right … I said hate. A few weeks ago some of you laughed/cried/suffered along with me while a cricket tormented me. For over an hour my wonderful husband tried to find the f–n cricket, to no success. Its sounds kept changing location. We knew it was in the house. But we couldn’t find it. Finally after over an hour it stopped. I convinced myself it had left, and went to bed. But not before D broke our cardinal rule. The rule we agreed to keep to remain happily married.  The rule goes something...

How to Jumpstart Your Inspiration

How to Jumpstart Your Inspiration

Inspiration is like a disease whose symptoms are the words “I don’t feel like it right now.” What can you do when you need a boost of creative inspiration and it just isn’t coming? Work anyway. That’s not the most inspiring advice you’ve gotten today, I’m sure but working regardless of how you feel has some serious benefits. 1. You’ll have something to show. It might suck, but it’s a start You don’t feel like writing tests  today, but do it anyway (this is my business now: writing SAT questions for tests.) Sure, it won’t be the best effort but editing  is better than not...
Visions of Daffodils Dancing in my Head

Visions of Daffodils Dancing in my Head

Oh man. I’m officially over winter. D-o-n-e. I know that I live in New England, and that winter lasts until April here. I know that’s it’s only mid-January. That doesn’t mean I can’t start doing a little spring day-dreaming. I decided to brighten up my (and hopefully your) day by putting together a little spring decor inspiration- inspired by this cute spring wardrobe wishlist over at Bower Power! C’mon spring! The Living Room Our main living space is currently rocking a mis-match of greens, yellows and browns. Not even nearly as fun as it sounds. Here’s what I would do...

Jumping Into Uncharted Waters

After seven years of working at the same company and for the same boss, I’m going in to work tomorrow and will give them an ultimatum. When I joined this company in 2001, I was a single woman with lofty goals and great ambition. I worked very hard and got several promotions within the first few years. It was the right fit for me. My boss and I saw things the same way. We were always ready to forge ahead with any challenge and conquer any obstacle. And it was fun and exciting. Since I joined, I’ve gotten married and had two children. With my first child, I went...
