I missed a few days in August due to moving to NYC from St. Louis. It felt weird to miss days of blogging.
I missed a few more days in September, and this past week, took a few days off from blogging to hang with family.
It is amazing to me that during this year, I have written more on this blog than in its entire 5 year history.
A favorite from each month:
- January: Worry less and feel good anyway. I need to reread this regularly and make sure I am doing it.
- February: Should we feel sorry for these people? A reflection on abusive relationships and Whitney Houston's death. Warning: Kind of controversial opinions thrown out.
- March: Lyzadora the Artist is amazing in so many ways. A tribute to a make-up artist friend that I truly adore and who it shocked me to hear used to have some insecurities.
- April: Hoping for less stress and more success. It seems like so long ago that I was coaching track. So glad I am not going to be doing it this year.
- May: What's good. This was a post where I was contemplating the hard spot of trying not to be around negative people in my work life.
- I also loved I thought I'd never catch my breathe - if only I had known at that time that I would be moving and starting fresh and paying way more rent when I was worried about my finances at the end of May. I would have been even more worried than I was.
- June: Aftermath of a young wedding. Comedy always ensues when I am around my siblings and siblings-from-other-parents. This arranged toddler wedding night was no different.
- Also I love to tell the story. A stream of consciousness post about how me and the boo met.
- July: Pleasing others versus living my life. I am getting better at living for me and not for others.
- August: Get back your dignity. Who invented this? Who buys this?
- September: Iron-teacher chef. Got to play like the game show and made some really great food!
- October: It's Monday. As well as It's Friday.
- November: School related posts - Doing all right. And Pranks, truancy and McDonald's.
- December: You don't always need the whole pie. A lesson in sex-ed.
Stream of consciousness Sunday post - extended about 10 minutes longer than the given 5-minutes. But this reflection on a about 340-ish days of blogging was what was on my mind for the day.
