How Sour Milk Almost Ruined My Day

It started out with the sour milk. Actually, if I am going to be honest it started before that. I woke up freezing then upon seeing my blanket I immediately curled up under it, just to fall back asleep. And sleep 15 minutes too long. I got up, did the normal things, poured my cereal then tasted the sourness. I dumped the milk then started a mad rush to get ready so I would have time to grab a bagel from the bagel place before work.

Then the boy took too long. Then I hit red lights. Then there was a detour. Then there was the on-going construction and closed parking lot. Then there was no parking signs where everyone parks so everyone parked by where I like to park my car instead. So there was no parking in the lot. So I had to park a million miles away. Then I had to run to the train.

Sure, even if the milk was good, I would've still hit the detour and still would have had to park a million miles away, but what else can I blame? A mystical diety? Fate?

The bagel was delicious, so in the end it was all worth it anyways.

Super Mom

Some fun facts about single moms:

There is no denying the fact that parenting is a tough job and being a single parent is even tougher. Take single moms for example who overcome all kinds of challenges to make a living for their kids. These women don’t know the meaning of the word quit and are always striving hard for their families. Our single mother infographic reveals that there are over 10.3 million single mothers and even though 50% of these women make less than $25,000 a year they still manage to make sure that their children are well provided for. These super women do it all … from cooking breakfasts and dinners to doing house chores, not to mention working in full-time jobs at the same time. Life of a single mother is not easy but these classy women certainly make it look effortless! via

I don't know why these infographics never seem to be the right size.

Reading: Using Statistical Methods in Social Science Research and, yes, it is as exciting as it sounds. I haven't read for fun in 7 months and I do not think I will be again for a very long time. School takes up so much time and energy. I feel like I am always doing school work. This course is the hardest and only 5 more weeks of it.

Listening to: I love the new Ben Folds song You Don't Know Me. I made it my ringtone :)

Thinking about: My mom. She had an "inoperable" tumor removed last week. I am so happy. Hopefully this can be a new beginning for her.

Watching: Desperate Housewives season 8. I love that show. There are others that I would like to try, Walking Dead being one of them, but I have to finish Desperate Housewives first. I just gotta.

Bummed out on: The world. Seriously, seems like nothing good is happening in the world. Death, destruction, keeping people down, stereotypes, natural disasters. For a while I stopped reading the news because it got me down so badly. Maybe I should stop reading it again for a while. That won't stop it, though. There is facebook and twitter. It is just depressing, is all.

Loving: Summer. This summer has been great so far. Went camping, met new people, hung out with my family, saw some friends that I don't see often enough, have gotten a lot of time with Ryder, my mom's surgery... Life is pretty good. (Then why am I so down all the time?)

Cup Song

So, on my computer it looks sounds like the sound is not lined up with the video. It may be that I am just way too good for my camera. Or my camera sucks. What do you think? Show me a video of you doing this. Please?? Don't let me and the thousands of other people on YouTube be the only ones :)


Lately I've felt like maybe I need to be censoring myself a little more.

Maybe I shouldn't be writing so much about mental illness.

I started thinking this way when I googled myself and saw how ridiculously easy it is to find this blog.

Like real easy.

So, I stopped blogging, though I've been decreasing in number of posts anyways, but for the first time I thought about taking some down.

Then I thought about it.


I blog about mental health so that people are not afraid to talk about their mental health issues.

So that we can reduce or eliminate the stigma attached.

I am honest, and that is my thing.

I don't need to apologize to anyone, especially myself, about that.

I will not censor myself, even if it is really really easy to find this blog.

So. Very. Excited.

I am going camping this weekend and I am super excited! I love camping. Especially when both of my sisters are there. And when we will be letterboxing all weekend!

I know loads of people do not understand camping, but there is something about sleeping and essentially living outside that I love. And beer. I like drinking outside. It just makes it taste better.

And fire. Beer and fire. ;)
