[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] Social Media: Why I Make Friends and Scroll Through NewsFeeds

I see a lot of backlash and hatred for social media and current technology. Frankly, I get sick of it. People want to bemoan this society for “always being on their phone” and “social media taking over their lives”, but the advancement of technology, including and especially mobile apps and social networking sites, can increase productivityContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Social Media: Why I Make Friends and Scroll Through NewsFeeds”

[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”

The Payoff Plan: How I’m Paying Off My Debts

They say there’s nothing sure in life except debt and taxes. (That’s the saying, right?) I shared previously how my bouts with unemployment ran me into the ground emotionally and mentally. A fun side effect was the pile of debt I incurred. Defeat was not an option. And so I arose to the occasion with my PayoffContinue reading “The Payoff Plan: How I’m Paying Off My Debts”

[RePlug] Haircuts and Paid Bills

I’m not the best at keeping up with my appearance. I do in my own way, but my style is low maintenance. It’s a big deal to me when I take the time and effort to schedule and pay for a haircut. Then there’s the annoyance of where to go. Great clips has burned meContinue reading “[RePlug] Haircuts and Paid Bills”

[Re-Plug] Adult Things That Some Adults Don’t Do

I used to be good with money. Then I lost my job (twice in 12 months), got into massive debt, fell into depression, and stopped caring how much money I spent. In the past six months, I’ve realized I need some extra assistance with how to budget. Despite what my pride told me, budgeting was noContinue reading “[Re-Plug] Adult Things That Some Adults Don’t Do”
