After a brief break from the remodeling, we got some work done today. It wasn't much, but I felt like I actually knew what I was doing, so my mom and I were trying to finish putting together one of the Ikea cabinets for my kitchen. Everything went well after I moved some screws that … Continue reading Hard work continues
Now we're painting another room, a bigger room. We started today but didn't finish painting the living room/kitchen. We painted about half of it, maybe a little more and started putting together my kitchen cabinets. This means my kitchen is partly done, I have a stove and a cabinet without doors, drawers or counter top. … Continue reading More color!

Today I started the five weeks of Beta and I was right, this second part is harder. It's … Continue reading Focus T25: Beta
Since I started my new job, tutoring, I have left writing my book aside. I did not do that consciously, I just noticed on my visit to the psychiatrist this week. I sent what I had done since I got another idea about how to write it but, I haven't done much with it and … Continue reading Can’t keep getting distracted
Two and a half years ago I finally allowed an orthodontist to put braces on me. It had been a battle with dentists my whole life, I hate the feeling of people working with my teeth but at last I said ok, let's do it. That was a very brave moment for me, a moment … Continue reading Smile!
I have been kind off covering this story on a few of my previews posts, and today it got more interesting, but I won't stop until they vote.

As I said this morning, my appointment with my neurologist was this afternoon. After sitting in the crowded waiting room, and waiting, quickly writing and posting another blog post, and waiting a little bit more, they called my name to go see him.

Since February 15th, I have been keeping count of how many miles I walk every day.

I have issues, issues with too many people around me. I was at the gym tonight and it was very, very, really full of people. I almost left, but as I was going to get my water bottle I noticed one person leaving, so I stood there for a second and thought, I need to … Continue reading Stop, just think about it before running away
Yesterday I was doubting myself. I didn't think I would write about my grades on my blog. I have never been one to share my grades with people, but then writing about it was the only way I could put my feelings of disappointment into coherent words, and get it all out. Every time I … Continue reading Thank you to all my readers
