Personal Growth

Checking in


When last we left our heroine, she was ranting about politics and getting settled in a new job.  Let’s peek in and see how she’s doing…

Things are good in the land of the AntiChick.  Work is going well, married life suits me, those in my family are all doing well.  I’m adjusting to living with a chronic illness, and grateful that it’s been mostly manageable.  I’m working on insurance approval for weight loss surgery.  Graduate school sucks.  Well, to be fair, ONLINE graduate school sucks.  I don’t know if there would be less suckage if I were able to attend physical classes.  I keep reminding myself that it’s not forever, just until December 2017.

I’ve been considering a move to a Bullet Journal, which has been consuming more of my thought processes than it probably should.  (  I am an office supply addict, and it appeals to me to have an analog system for capturing thoughts and notes.  However, I am completely digital with my calendar on Google and have a cool Galaxy Note 5 phone with a stylus, so I’m toying with the idea of doing something like it digitally.  I mean, I *always* have my phone with me, it seems silly to have to always carry around a notebook.  But there are things I prefer to scribble out, and they seem to get lost in the notebook I usually run around with.  I will need to find a system that allows me to blend analog and digital notes in a usable way.

One of the things I really need to keep up with better is my blogging.  I have a bunch of ideas I want to write and publish, but I need to get in the pattern of writing daily and updating my blog more often than I’m currently managing before that can become a reality.  The blogging landscape has certainly changed in the twenty-some years I’ve been on the internet.  I finally got a Facebook page set up, and I need to figure out what other social media needs to accompany my blog.  Instagram?  Snapchat?  Not really sure where all of that fits in, but I’ll figure it out.

More to come.
