    Sunday Books and Stuff #3

    Happy 4am Sunday! Yep, I’m awake early…again. This is becoming a normal thing, which I suppose is fine since my schedule shifts soon and I’ll be busier, earlier on most days.

I’m loving it as much as I did the first time. I’m also reading through Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? by Kathleen Collins.

    Routines, Habits, Changes! Oh my! #AMonthofFaves

    #AMonthofFaves Routines, Habits and Changes. What Worked this Year and/or What Didn’t.

    Sunday Books and Stuff #2

    Isn’t it funny and terrifying how a whole week can pass and you just wake up at 4:30am on a Sunday morning and realize that? Oh, wait…I just used a calculator to double-check myself, because it IS 4:30 in the morning, and the first cup of coffee hasn’t gone down yet, and IT’S BEEN 13 DAYS! How has it been 13 days? Oh right… Essays to grade Trainings to do More essays to grade House to clean Meals to cook Other fun stuff to do (see SIMS4, crochet) Life, y’all. Wow. Was Reading | Sadly, this has not been a great reading month so far. I’m taking comfort in the…
