When Things Die as You Know Them, Be Ready for the Change

207 days of writing. Whew. This is the longest I’ve kept up with a  daily routine other than the obvious eating, showering, sleeping…you know general upkeep. A few days ago, maybe a couple of weeks ago… I got sick of daily writing and it started to drive me nuts. My attitude changed and my posts went…

I Thought Summer Just Started! My Plans for the New School Year

I just enrolled my oldest in a Cyber Charter School. He was homeschooled for 3rd grade, went to school in Costa Rica for 4th grade, and just last month we finished out the 5th grade in homeschool again. We are moving abroad in just a few months, but since the US and Costa Rica are…

It’s a Great Time to Work, Travel and Build a Side Hustle

Since my priority has recently shifted to traveling abroad again, my focus has completely changed. In the evening, I’ve been hitting all my hours for my remote work.  I have cut back on my writing time, and am spending time trip planning and finding a secondary remote job. Last year, I split the rent on…

The Question I Ask When I Don’t Get the Results I Want

In elementary and middle school, I never studied for exams. Like many students at that age, I was able to get good grades with little effort. Freshman year of high school came and went and that was okay too. Sophomore year… all that luck ended. I had to crack open my textbooks and dig in.…

Things Change, It’s Important To Be Flexible

This year has been a series of adjustments and one thing I’ve learned is to be flexible. There’s a time to hustle and there’s a time to unwind. At the beginning of this year, I wrote about putting in the work.  I was ready to go all in and in those first 6 months, I…

We’re Shutting Down the Daily Podcast

Today, Mr. Molly Maguire and I recorded our last daily podcast episode before our 1-2 week break. We have 65 episodes to date which is crazy to think about. In the beginning, it was cool. Although I had recorded 4-5 episodes on a solo podcast previously, I was still a newbie and the nerves were…

What’s Your Perfect Day Look Like?

What would your perfect day look like? I asked my youngest sister today. “Living somewhere tropical…I would like to wake up in the morning to the sun peeking through my windows and then have a big platter of fruits and seeds served to me. And then I would like to do some yoga, maybe write a…

Remember When There Was No Internet?

  I remember when my parents first got internet. I was probably 4 or 5, playing with my toys in our basement when my dad first sat down at his desk and logged onto it.  He had been excitedly chatting about it all day to my mom, but of course, back then this didn’t mean anything…

Feeling Bored? You Might Want to Shake Things Up

Ever since I pulled back from my writing a bit and decided to focus on some other projects, I’ve felt relieved. I’ve had writer’s block maybe once or twice during this challenge, but I never felt burnt out or disinterested in writing until a little after I crossed the halfway mark. Perhaps it was the new…

A Change in Perspective Can Change Your Day

Last night, I was up until 3 am doing my hair for a photo shoot. While doing this, I was also watching, “The Walking Dead”. I was hooked and while I knew I shouldn’t, I found myself sneaking in an extra episode as I retired for the night. It’s been over half a year since…
