I have found a sense of calm within myself, and the background noise of the past in my rear view mirror is fading and dimming and well, finally becoming more distant as seconds become days, become months. On my way home from the gym yesterday…

Originally posted 2015-08-11 14:27:45. Technically, the walk I showed off in last week’s review (of 16,000+ steps to Central Park) was the start of this week, but I wanted to focus on something different for this one. Not only am I changing my physical, but I’ve mentioned that I am altering my entire lifestyle. That…

Originally posted 2015-08-05 13:54:49. I hate crowds. I mean, full on Feralpixie when I’m near more than say, ten people at once. I might seem very gregarious and even social butterfly online, and even in extremely intimate settings, but more than three people, and unless I’m familiar with the others in a very relaxed setting,…

Originally posted 2015-07-27 23:57:20. I’ve wanted a charm bracelet tattoo for decades now. There were always certain ‘charms’ that I was sure I wanted – the T.A.R.D.I.S., a daisy, a book, and a butterfly, and a few others, though there were several – roughly five – that were always in flux. Last year, whilst in…

Originally posted 2015-07-19 23:35:23. So a girlfriend of mine, from Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) had a nice little idea during these #100days, to see my responses to a few things. She wants to do a few more questions in a few of weeks as well, to see what’s changed. I did record the actual skype chat…

Last year, my then fiancé (now husband) video chatted with me on Skype after his trek to Snug Harbor – where June 28th they were holding an annual Polish Festival. Since he’s a scuba diver, he went to…

Originally posted 2015-06-27 15:22:19. What did I learn in Week 4? Well, it’s the entire thing. Just keep walking.   I wore crocs for over eight years. I have NEVER liked the feel of shoes on my feet. I used to live on the outskirts of a small town that had a single flashing yield…

Originally posted 2015-06-20 14:29:47. Most (though there will be several that wish to add other categories, I am stating “MOST”) people who are obese fall into one of three main categories: genetic, traumatic health change, or simply bad choices. Since I’m really not capable of laying blame on a genetic level due to lack of…

It has to be better tomorrow. Often, we are quick to assume that someone (especially in the cold, impersonal world of writing online) “means” one thing, but they don’t intone it with any flavour at all. I’ll give you a for instance. There is a Bach particular piece – it’s a 60 variation tune of…

I finished my first workout at the MUA gym about an hour and a half ago. It was shorter than I will be doing from here on, but let’s face it; I haven’t spent time in a gym since my last visit to Crunch Fitness in Staten Island way back on February 9th. I figured…

A year ago, I was making excuses for not wanting to get off the couch in Staten Island, NY. My back was sore, my leg was bugging me, I had a migraine, I didn’t sleep well, blah blah blah. I was the queen of internal silent excuses, and the number one thing: no one was…

Making memories out in the ocean isn’t too difficult, but you’re going to want to keep a few things in mind: Respect the ocean. There is life that is MUCH larger than you. Don’t think because you cannot see it, that it cannot see you. The rule I was taught first was “if it’s extremely…

So today, I got to meet more beautiful Nevisians. They are gregariously kind. They embody everything that is good within the world. They care, they are selfless, and they are delightfully present in their lives. Kaylee desperately needs a cat scratcher, so I set out to buy the simple things today to make her one,…

The New Journey Begins – March 27, 2016 There was slack in the belt. I didn’t care anymore that security had a malfunction with the card reader and almost made 7 plane’s worth of people delayed. I didn’t think about the fact that I had lost a lot of t-shirts and other brand new personal…
