[Re-Plug] Learning Basic Domestic Skills On My Own

Normally I would pay to have clothing alterations done for me–or better yet, throw out the old, crappy ones and replace them with newer and better ones. As expensive and stupid as that may be, it’s always been far easier and palatable to me than learning to make basic amendments to my clothing. Lately though, inContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Learning Basic Domestic Skills On My Own”

[Re-Plug] A Giant Confidence Booster in an Unlikely Place

Allow me a moment to be proud of myself for a second: I fixed my boyfriend’s computer. And I FREAKING rocked it! While not exactly a computer programming genius, I, like most people of my generation, know my way around a computer and its basic fixes (also, they’re so damn intuitive, it’s hard not to).Continue reading “[Re-Plug] A Giant Confidence Booster in an Unlikely Place”

[Re-Plug] What I’ve Done Today…A List

Okay, so this list is stupid, right? WRONG. Well, you might still think it’s stupid, but the reason I would argue it’s not is that this a list I made on a bad mental health day. Instead of making a to-do list to accomplish, I did the opposite: I made a list of all the stuffContinue reading “[Re-Plug] What I’ve Done Today…A List”

[Re-Plug] Letting It All Air Out

It’s hard to be productive when you’re tired, feeling down, dreading work, school, or assignments/projects. Being in a bad mental place can affect your ability to function. Lately, that’s been me somewhat. I don’t really like my current job (I’ve been there about 6 weeks). I don’t look forward to going in. I start feeling bummedContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Letting It All Air Out”

[Re-Plug] What I Do When I Don’t Know What to Do

I sometimes get frantic about what to post. “Oh, it’s been so long. I need to post something! Quick, find some good worksheets or effective mental health tips or something productive to share!!!” I was going to concoct something worth posting. Whether generated from my mind on the spot or inspired by something I found,Continue reading “[Re-Plug] What I Do When I Don’t Know What to Do”

Piece by Piece

I moved a few weeks ago, and it was quite the undertaking. Anyone who has ever moved (i.e. all of us), knows what a giant pain in-the-you-know-where it is. Seriously. Exhausting, time-consuming, expensive, and just plain annoying. I found unpacking for the second time in two years to be just as exciting as it wasContinue reading “Piece by Piece”

[Re-Plug] Cleaning Up My Computer Files Makes Me Feel Like I Have My Life Together

My room is in total disarray. Dust collects on every surface. Forgotten items lie strewn about. Piles of things with no home mock me in corners. Laundry remains unwashed and unfolded (though the latter has always and forever been true since I haven’t folded my laundry in roughly a year anyway). I’m moving in a fewContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Cleaning Up My Computer Files Makes Me Feel Like I Have My Life Together”

[Re-Plug] Interval Cleaning

I haven’t been the best about showing my “replugs” or even calling them that, like a good, consistent blogger. But that doesn’t mean I’m not getting stuff done or being productive, in some way. But back to form a little, here’s what I did: vacuumed my car out! Yay! It’s winter, and winter is messyContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Interval Cleaning”

4 Extremely Simple Things That Helped Make My Life A Lot Better

My life is a whirlwind of chaos sometimes. And I’m not exactly the kind of girl who does hour-long meditations. I’m the kind of girl though who comes up with real solutions. I know I’m a mess. I know I’m chaos walking. I’m not trying to be Miss Go with the Flow all the sudden.Continue reading “4 Extremely Simple Things That Helped Make My Life A Lot Better”

[Re-Plug] What I’ve Been Learning

For those who already know what this is, you might be laughing at how rudimentary my skills are. For those who don’t know, let me tell you: this is JavaScript. A programming language that involves writing the code you see on the left to create the picture you see on the right. I worked reallyContinue reading “[Re-Plug] What I’ve Been Learning”
