OH MY GOSHHHHH - at this time tomorrow I will *officially* no longer be a college student; it’s starting to sink in, I’m so excited!! For those close to me you know this has been literally the LONGEST and hardest road...and it’s finally at its end!!! On that note....spending my last night as an undergrad studying for my FINAL final exam tomorrow
After that - it’s time to CELEBRATEEEEE 🎉👯♀️🎉👯♀️
I am patting myself on the back for not yelling today. Not once.
Not when Victoria threw her untouched dinner in the trash, not when the baby would not stop crying, not when my kids didn't listen and Victoria split her lip open at the park, not when I was handling three screaming children at bedtime by myself, not when they were in our room at 5am, not when I couldn't move my arm this morning when I woke up for the 5th time with the baby, not when the kids wouldn't leave me alone in the car on our way home because I didn't get gas, not when the baby slept a combined total of 2 hours during the day, not when I couldn't get the stroller down the stairs to get to the park, not when Elisabeth would NOT get the ball she left waaaaay over there, not when all of these things happened today after a bad day yesterday and no sleep for forever.
Usually when I have a rough day, by the end of it, I yell once or even twice. It's not something I am proud of, and I am working on it.
I was going to treat myself to some chocolate for dinner, but then the first bite gave me terrible, immediate heartburn. I thought that was supposed to go away after pregnancy. What's up with that?!
I would also pat myself on the back for going to the park today, but then I had to call Otso to come rescue me because I had no idea how I was going to get us all home by myself - the normally 10 minute walk there took us almost 45.
Good Day, this right here really just made my day. This is my Guy right here, i kinda lost my way wit him a few years ago due to dealing wit my own issues but I’m good now, actually this shit right here just made it all better.

I still can’t believe I’m saying this, but the @seahearnow festival saw the last of Daisy’s nuk. Eternal thanks goes out to the sympathetic, one-step-ahead-of-your-life-stage mom who pulled me aside on the beach and whispered the secrets of the pacifier universe into my ear: “it takes three days,” she told me. “The first day they will cry all night. Do it on a weekend. You’ll think they’re dying and you’re a terrible person, but they’re not and you’re not. Second night will still be hard but not as bad. Third night it will be forgotten. The whole thing sucks, but it works, so do it when you’re ready.” It probably helped that Daisy was losing her s**t for most of the weekend, so when she finally intentionally threw the nuk in the dirt after asking me for it, I hid it in my pocket and told her it was gone forever. That night was long, but over the next three days EVERYTHING HAPPENED LIKE MYSTERY MOM SAID! And now when Daisy reaches her breaking point, her cries for her nuk have been replaced with an incredibly endearing exclamation of, “I can’t do this, mama!” Every once in awhile it comes up in conversation; “I really wish I had my nuk (winky baby face).” But then I remind her that she now has an Ariel nightgown and a Rapunzel doll instead of a nuk, which were purchased (ironically) on the most traumatizing hysterical nightmare of a trip to the Disney store during which I never missed the nuk more. #cantwinemall but overall I am so proud of my little girl, and our current potty-trained, nuk-less life is pretty fantastic! #thegoodpartsofgrowingup#majoraccomplishment#daisymaeve#nomorenuk#festivalbaby

Sećam se početka... perioda pre 4 i po godine. 🤞🏼 Imala sam viziju koju sam nazvala Totally Wellness. ☯️ Intuicija je govorila “Ne odustaj!!!” 🧚🏻♀️ Medjutim, pretpostavljam da znate da tokom ovih godina nije bilo samo sunčano! ☀️⛅️🌧❄️☔️ Dugu na nebu sam možda samo dvaput videla 🌈, ali nisam odustala ni kada je kiša padala, ni kada su munje sevale. 🌪 A onda dodje i ovaj trenutak. Sednem, otvorim svesku, zapišem ove reči, te ih kasnije prepišem na Instagram za vas gde kažem sebi: “Sutra u Beogradu #5danadetoksprogram pripremam za 100 ljudi. Svaki dan na ovom putu imao je smisla. 100 porodica će biti inspirisano.” 😍 Wow. ❤️ That’s it. 💯 🙏🏻💫 Ako i vi imate viziju, ne plašite se da maštate. Ne plašite se da izadjete iz svoje zone komfora. #TotallyWellness#LetsGo#MajorAccomplishment
I’ve been admiringly following @alexhonnold #alexhonnold free solos (a.k.a. climbing without using any ropes, harnesses or any protective equipment) for some time now. Yet the movie @freesolofilm #freesolo hit me and dumbfounded me. I’m left awestruck and speechless by his meticulous study of El Capitan #elcapitan , by his countless hours of preparation and training, by his stubborn perseverance, and by his holding on to his most dearest goal. #feat#majoraccomplishment#inspiration#rockclimbing#aloneonthewall @natgeo @honnoldfoundation
First picture I've drawn from a photo. Image is one of my best friends. I'm quite proud of it. For some reason it was like a door opened in my head. I found this one considerably easier to do, even though I've made mistakes in a couple different areas. Even then, it's the best one Ive drawn yet.
I feel like I'm closer to reaching my goal than ever before. I will learn to do this, even though 4 days ago I felt completely hopeless about it.
It's a positive poem! I never do that. 😃Kind of proud of myself, but I feel better than I have in... I don't know how long. I actually feel like I deserve to be loved. That's... Truly an amazing feeling.
I had reminders to have breakfast at a reasonable time today. (swipe left for the assholes.) today it's greek strawberry AND blueberry yogurt with fresh peach, raspberries, and blackberries (they were so big I had to cut them in half!), mixed granola. I bought an extra packet of the stuff I posted earlier in the week, plus dark chocolate & fruit and honey almond.
My stomach has felt so much better since I started eating better - haven't had cramps in over a week.
Last year, Provost Flynn and I launched an effort to recognize newly minted Full Professors @usc_upstate upon their promotion in honor of reaching this pinnacle in their career. While we were privileged to award colleagues promoted in FY18 at the recent General Faculty meeting one individual was traveling during the meeting.
Today we had the chance to catch up with Dr. Melissa Pilgrim, Director of Research Support, and award her a medallion (to be worn at commencement) recognizing her new status as a Full Professor @usc_upstate.
Supper tonight. Corn was pretty good, and more filling than I expected. Spaghetti was left overs from yesterday. This makes 3 days of eating reasonably well, and I'm really happy about it. Just need to work on paying attention to how full I am. My computer died again, so my anxiety spiked a few times, but I'm taking as a Chance to read.
One Major Accomplishment, i couldnt be more proud of myself!! Thank you to my family and friends that support me, you guys are my rock
I will always keep pushing to accomplish my goals at a young age.
