Pursuing graduate studies, seems to have been a trigger to my mid-life crisis.
- I applied to graduate studies in the summer of 2010.
- My mother suffered a severe stroke Labour Day weekend, 2010.
- April 2012 I suffered a severe concussion in a sport.
- My father had to retire early in order to take care of my mother
- My mother has developed dementia/Alzheimer’s.
It’s a short list, but trust me, it packs a stressful punch! During all this I have begun a journey of self discovery. People who know me, ask me how I manage with all this s#!^ on my plate. I sometimes wonder myself. It was suggested that I keep a diary to put all my thoughts down. Frankly, in this digital age, I am more comfortable with a keyboard. I no longer recognize my own handwriting anymore aside from my signature.
So the purpose of this blog is mainly to be self-therapeutic. People have told me that my e-mails have always been funny and entertaining because I write how I speak. I assumed that would be true for everyone. Perhaps I may have a unique flavour to add to the blogosphere. Passions in life that keep me going are my pet rabbit, saving money and helping others. I would love to learn more about personal finances, time management while trying to remain positive. If you have helpful suggestions and comments, by all means TELL ME PLEASE!
I would like to keep all my posts light, yet anonymous. By writing this blog without a face, I can be more free with my feelings. I had a blog once and I told everyone I knew about it. It turned out the people I talked to every day would prefer to pressure me into writing a post, so they could read it rather that ask me how I was doing. WTF? I realized that I wasn’t very articulate, and I express myself better with the written word. The blog became more of a chore and a source of stress and resentment. In a year, I wanted out of my outlet. So now, this one is for me. It’s my blog and I’ll type when I want to.
Here we go!
