Pushing Myself This was the first week when I finally got off the crazy work roller coaster. I have no idea how I convinced myself that I could work on two major projects AND carry a full workload of clients. I guess sometimes I just try to push myself to see what I can really … Continue reading

How Circles Become Spirals

My circle obession For some odd reason this year, I’ve become obsessed with circles. I see them everywhere.

A Human State of Mind

My State of Mind School has ended and summer camp has begun. I have great hopes this year for a productive summer.

A Brief Update Just a bit of an update about my Yelling Less Project. I’m doing a better job at controlling my yelling since I posted the Starting Over update.
