7 more Contacts classes, 2 of which are canceled, 3 of which have a substitute professor, and one is a review session. So, with three weeks left of class I only have one more actual class with my real professor. … Continue reading
I was curious at first when I saw “Jamie Lynn Spears” on YouTube suggestions. Honestly, I did not expect much. Yes, I remember Zoey 101 and she was a talented Nickelodeon actress but I did not recall hearing her sing – Probably did at some point on the show but I didn’t watch it religiously.
The song started and I expected it to be pop — like her sister. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised that it was nearly acoustic, gentle piano and guitar support, with a very smoky, delicate sound.
This was an amazing song, no apparent digital manipulations and her voice is perfect for the country genre. Kudos to you, Jamie Lynn for making your own path. I look forward to the next single.
Looking up seemed so promising. Looking back, I see my past brighter than I experienced it. I remember sitting around in high school thinking I cannot wait to grow up! Yet, now, all I want is to go back to … Continue reading
Last night I had one of the most amazing dreams I have had in my life… I was shopping for pens. If you know me, you will know that I carry around a pencil case FILLED with highlighters, sharpie pens, pens, and mechanical pencils. There have been several times that I have chosen to put away food items so I could purchase a new pack of highlighters or sharpies. Do I have a problem?
Um, I had a DREAM about shopping for pens!
Somehow this dream made me confident that I am choosing the right career path because, from what I’ve seen, law offices are treasure troves of office supplies! What do type A people like more than organization? And, what helps you organize yourself more than OFFICE SUPPLIES?!
However, the scary thought that my last “classroom” experiences are about to happen in the next week and I am mortified. I love learning. Yes, I may be the first to come up with mysterious illnesses or sudden trips out of town around the middle of the semester when that slump of classes takes over, but I absolutely love the “going to school” lifestyle.
My future job will need to be something that constantly challenges me. A position that allows me to be continually learning and researching. I need to be interested. I need to be excited!
And, if I start to feel myself fall into a slump at my new job, or as I enter this new phase of no-classroom-classes (i.e. externships and online courses)… I’ll have to get in the car and drive to the nearest office supply store.
There’s nothing like opening up a new pack of pens to get you interested in completing that 10 hour day of Multistate Bar prep
The last few weeks has been tough. I’ve been experiencing a painful aching and occasional stabbing pain in both legs and my arms consistently for two weeks. Right now, all I want to do is lay in bed all day, every day. The process towards diagnosing the REAL issue is underway but it is going very S L O W L Y.
I have been trying to listen to my body more than I used to and added two days of rest in between my workout days instead of pushing through the pain as I used to do. My body is not what it used to be and I have to accept that. Nonetheless, at 25, that is a tough pill to swallow.
My body is a machine. My focus during my November fitness challenge will be to treat my body as a machine… a tool. On November 1, 2013, I will be co-leading my first challenge group and I am excited! I am hoping that this challenge goes well and sets a huge precedent.
I am attempting to not set my expectations TOO high as I have to remember that the MAIN reason for these challenge groups is to encourage accountability, foster relationships, and TRANSFORM lives.
One day at a time…
It’s time to be serious.
I lack passion.
I have no desire to put 100% into anything.
I’m not sure if this is a recent development or if I’ve always been this way. Yet, I’m pretty sure it is a newer development because I remember giving up recess to write each word on the spelling bee list ten times (or more).
When did I lose my passion? Maybe I need to discover a new passion?
It may be possible to lose sight of passion. Maybe it’s something you have to continually cultivate to maintain… similar to relationships. Maybe it’s something you stumble upon when you least expect it? Whatever the case, I need to keep walking until I find mine again. My life seems directionless right now and I have to keep praying I find that direction.
Have you ever forgotten or lost your passion for something?
What did you do?
