When does life give you a break?

As a child, I felt like my days were long. They felt like they would last forever. I had so much time in my day to attend school, play outside, do my homework, watch MTV music video in the morning, watch Toonami or whatever was good at night, play video games, and read a whole book. All in one day! As an adult, I struggle to manage to fit everything into one day. I find it hard to do multiple tasks into one day. By the evening, I am exhausted. My day felt an hour long but drained a year of energy out of me. I just want one day to do absolutely nothing! I understand... I'm a parent, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a few other roles. When will I ever get a break? How do you master the game of life you ask? You don’t. No one really wins but no one really loses either. It’s so filled with ups and downs that even on the highs you’ll hit the lows. It’s so damn complicating and infuriating playing a game you are not going to completely dominate. But you know what? You've g

Life Update 2/12

Sorry for such a delay! It's been 10 days since my last post. I wanted to... I really did. I just couldn't. The website I use for my blog doesn't have an app and then my Suddenlink (internet and cable) went down for five days. It was fixed about 20 minutes ago so here I am. I figured I'd take this time to update everyone on how life is! It's Monday, February 12th. I'm about a month into my last semester of graduate school. Only like two more months left! I've been teaching for a few weeks now too. I've definitely decided this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to be a professor. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for an online doctoral program. So, I decided to take a year off since I went directly from my bachelors program to the masters. I'm excited to start this next chapter of my life. We should be closing on our house within the next month! I cannot wait to move. The house we currently live in has carpet and mold/mildew.

January 2018: TV Renewals and Cancellations

Welcome to the new year! It's 2018, baby. Lots of new television shows are being released this year, but there's also a lot of old shows that will most likely end this year. Let's hope this is a good year for TV. I have a hypothesis that a lot of shows will be cancelled this year and next year will be the year of mostly new television shows. Let's see what was renewed and cancelled in January. Renewals She's Gotta Have It (Netflix) - Season 2 The Circus (Showtime) - Season 3 The Gifted (FOX) - Season 2 Young Sheldon (CBS) - Season 2 The Gong Show (ABC) - Season 2 Floribama Shore (MTV) - Season 2 Future Man (Hulu) - Season 2 Marvel's Runaways (Hulu) - Season 2 Ellen's Game of Games (NBC) - Season 2 Full Frontal With Samantha Bee (TBS) - Seasons 3 and 4 American Dad (TBS) - Season 15 and 16 Stan Against Evil (IFC) - Season 3 The Walking Dead (AMC) - Season 9 9-1-1 (FOX) - Season 2 The Tick (Amazon) - Season 2 Grown-ish (Freeform) - Season

Groundhog Day 2018!

Every February 2nd, a groundhog crawls out from his home and tells the world about the weather. It's an interesting concept that America and two other countries follow. As a child, I treated Groundhog Day as a true holiday. As an adult, I google it, if I realize the date, and see what prediction he had.  Legend has it if a furry rodent casts a shadow on Groundhog Day to expect six more weeks of winter-like weather. If not, expect spring-like temperatures. Historically, when the German colonists arrived, there were no badgers in the East, so they drafted the groundhog to do the prognosticating. The idea was that if there was sun and warmth that the groundhog would return to their home.  This year's prediction: SIX MORE WEEKS OF WINTER! Talk about a bummer. I'm missing those warm temperatures, especially today. There's snow outside. Yuck! Can't Phil move to Miami? There's bound to be sun there.
