Celebrating Growth, Even When You're Bad at Math

I've been thinking a lot about math lately.  I'm terrible at math, I always have been.  It was the only subject in school where I was happy if I even squeaked by.  But it took some growing up to understand that the concepts in math are much more relatable to life than I expected....more

Every So Often I Do This Thing...

Every so often I do this thing called spazzing out.  It's really easy to do when you're at home constantly running around in circles.  I try to live by the tips I give but I'll admit, it's difficult.  Today as I ran around doing my daily chores and thinking of what I was going to yell at my husband about when he got home, (Lol)(not really) I realized that I hadn't had a moment to do some things I needed to get done.  I still have to submit my complete admissions package to the Grad school committee.  I haven't finished my latest blog post....more
