2015: My Year of Fulfillment

Happy New Year Lovebugs!

A new year has been ushered in and with it that I have left behind the wounds and transgressions of 2014. Life dealt me a really rough hand in 2014, between stress, work, my health taking more dips and flips than the most stomach dropping, heart pounding of roller coasters. I was on the verge of and had a mental breakdown. I took a leave of absence from my Ph.D Clinical Psychology program to focus on my health and wellbeing; it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a very long time.  Read the rest of this entry »

I’m Wound Too Damn Tight!!

Hey there my Lovelies!!

I am freshly back from a mentally and physically exhausting week of grad work in Santa Barbara, CA and there is no rest for the wicked!! I have barely had time to unpack before I had to turn around and start my regular work week. Nonetheless, being a clinical psychology doctoral student has a way of making you realize that you have accomplished something monumental and that I should really take a moment to stop and take it all in.  *insert 5 second reflective pause…* Ok, that’s done…

So, I awoke this morning in a really strange mood.  It was a play–my-Metallica-playlist type of morning and I was for sure that no one was going to be given quarter today on anything.  I can say that that particular mindset has changed but my BS-O’Meter still has a pretty low threshold; I think I might be wound just a little too tight right now.  I am in desperate need of decompression therapy and not the kind you get from the chiropractor.  I am talking about the type of decompression therapy that makes you forget that you ever had a complaint in the world.  For some this constitutes a massage, happy hour, the gym and just about anything else that would make you melt and ignore any and everything.  Unfortunately this isn’t something that I am afforded at this point; too many responsibilities, too many depending on me, too many, too much, too little time.  So where does that leave me?  It leaves me listening to my Classic Soul and R&B stations on Pandora to keep a sliver of sanity, playing intermittent Words with Friends games with my oldest friend, texting Fashion Citations to unsuspecting friends for their Mother’s Day church choices (You know who you are… LOL) and figuring out what mischief and hijinks I can get into with the least amount of effort on my part!

Happy Hump Day My Lovelies!!

I Want Spring Break Too Damn It!!!

Hello my Lovelies!!

It is yet another day and I will admit to being bored out of my ever-loving mind!!!  So this week the majority of the country is out on Spring Break and offices are running on a skeleton crew and there is little going on.  I’m envious damn it!  Yea, I admit to it, I want to take Spring Break off too!!  But because I am in graduate school here in a little over a week (I am to begin per-requisites for my PhD in Clinical Psychology), I’m not a teacher or work in the education field and I don’t have any children, Spring Break is all but forbidden to me.  Therefore I will be salty and a hater (which is an absolute rarity on my part) and pout and everything else possible to show my displeasure at my current status.  Is that childish, ignorant and wholly out of character for me? Yup and I don’t care!!!!

So instead of sunning somewhere where clouds rarely ever exist, obtaining perfect bikini tan lines and falling asleep to the sound of waves breaking on the beach, I will sit here at my desk, listening to samba music on Pandora, daydreaming about my time in Rio a few years back and eating a Cutie orange… This week can’t be over fast enough!!!

Blessings, Happiness and Fun in the Sun

T. Nicole
