Rose Moon : June 9th

I had planned to visit the Jardin de Bagatelle, plan for the future, trim my hair, and dust off my suit! Here's what actually happened. I have to say that I didn't take a minute to remember the moon on Friday. I was recovering from both my food poisoning/stomach drama while going through the revolving… Continue reading Rose Moon : June 9th

ALEoVSPaMFMP : Part 2

WOW what an acronym. The follow-up to yesterday's post. As my doctor frowned at the echograph results and my lack of visible appendix, I decided I was done. I asked her if I needed surgery, and she looked at me like I'd grown a second head. It's not uncommon in France, so I re-explained that… Continue reading ALEoVSPaMFMP : Part 2

A Long Explanation of Very Short Posts, and my First Missed Post : Part 1

It's been a rough couple of days, and while I technically "posted" on my blog every day, until yesterday. And, to top it off, I haven't really said much of anything. I definitely meant to make another throwaway post yesterday, just to have an X on the calendar, as it were. I got into bed,… Continue reading A Long Explanation of Very Short Posts, and my First Missed Post : Part 1

Little Changes : ‘Wellness’

Resisting the concept of wellness and all of its marketing, yet feeling like I'm workin' on my wellness at the same time. I'm not a paragon of wellness. I go to bed late sometimes, I'd eat nothing but eggs or cereal or veggie purée for every meal of the day, I don't work out nearly enough… Continue reading Little Changes : ‘Wellness’

Goals Update, Part 1

I first posted about my goals on February 20th, and I'm checking in with myself about how the last three months have gone. I'm reflecting on my first three goals in this post. I had six goals for the year : Stress less. Sleep more. Use my mornings. Stay on top of my last 5… Continue reading Goals Update, Part 1

Challenges

Just 10%

It's one of those days. We had an amazing night with E's cousins, but I definitely didn't plan very well for it. I was exhausted when I woke up this morning, and I was up earlier than normal because I had to wash my hair. Cut to dashing out of the house barely on time,… Continue reading Just 10%

Noticing “Needs”

I’m out of my face wash, and getting philosophical about it. When it comes to the things I think I “need,” I like to imagine that I’ve cut a lot of things out of my life. Rather than throwing my stuff away, I’m using it up; wearing clothes until they are irreparable, as opposed to getting rid… Continue reading Noticing “Needs”

Monday Musings

The pace of the blog is really getting away from me this week! My father and I are going to the airport tomorrow, he'll be going back home and I'll be going back home. That's an odd idea to internalise, that my parents home and my home are different. This isn't to say, of course,… Continue reading Monday Musings
