Keeping the Resolution Challenge [Day 4]

In Days 1 and 2 you set up your goal and priorities, in Day 3 you started to take a look at the bigger picture. Now, in Day 4, we are tackling the action. For every major goal in life, you must have a plan of action to make it happen. If you don’t have a […]

Keeping the Resolution Challenge [Day 3]

Welcome to day 3 of the Resolution Challenge! In Day 1 you set your priorities and motivation for your big goal this year, and in Day 2 you made it go from a mere wish to something that’s tangible and actionable. Today you are going to make a plan on how you are going to […]

Keeping the Resolution Challenge [Day 2]

It’s still the first real week back after the holidays, so you’re still wound up and ready to go. But, something’s giving in the background. I’ve seen it happening already here in Indianapolis while the numbers in the gym plummeted after our first big snow: It’s called life. Something happened, and people are already starting […]

Keeping the Resolution Challenge [Day 1]

As the holidays end and we recover from the festivities, we make ourselves promises. We make all sorts of promises from the most infamous of losing weight to somewhat common ones of enjoying life more to the very rare of doing something for others. And, if you are anything like most people, you make promises […]

Organising the lab, home, office, and life

Life seems to happen no matter what you do. At the end of November I had all these great plans for what I was going to do between then and Christmas. Then, as I was starting to write lists of things to accomplish, in steps life and demands I take a break. OK, not a break […]

November comes to an end (early) + Travelling research

Ok, I know that November is not officially over yet. However, it is for me and blogging here. With the holidays around the corner and meeting family time demands, I know I’m not going to have much time to write. Alas, I wish I didn’t.  If you’ve known me for long, you know I’m not […]

Restructuring hiatus

Hey, everyone! My seasonal job ended, then my semester ended at Kaplan. Thus, my brain is in need of a vacation. I’m taking this week to restructure my schedule, realign my goals, get some more blog post ideas, and generally get all the gears lubricated. Oh, and drink lots of tea. Lots and lots and […]

October was a blur [Monthly update]

One of the pleasures of life is packing it full of things to do, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t painful. In the month of October I held 4 jobs. That’s right, four. During the day on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday I worked at Rosie’s Gardens. The evenings on Monday and Wednesday were spent teaching […]

5 tips for conquering doubt

Forgive me for not sugar-coating reality, but running an alt-path is more difficult than you might imagine — doubly so when you set out to do it purposefully. Why? It’s because it’s not the “normal” path, and often people will question you. They will question why you’re doing something, how you’re doing something, make constant […]

Life exeriences are viable lessons

Sometimes life doesn’t work out like you want while you’re moving from one thing to another. Usually, when everything seems to start crashing down, it’s not because you aren’t trying to keep it together, but rather because something unexpected happened. It could be that an experiment failed, your car broke, down, or that the computer […]
