Another Day Gone

Nighttime has come; the end of another day gone. I’m tired; it seems my body habitually goes into low battery mode after a stressful event. Hours ago I met with a professor on Zoom to discuss a possible research project idea that I am interested in pursuing under his mentorship. I have never been this…… Continue reading Another Day Gone

Sinking or Swimming

My posts continue to be melancholic. I feel like I have been in a haze. Self-preservation is an innate instinct and that’s what I’ve been trying to do. Just surviving somehow. My physical and mental health took some hits during the stay-at-home order. I think I still am suffering, maybe from the aftereffects, even though…… Continue reading Sinking or Swimming

Checking In After An Absence

Wow I haven’t checked WordPress in weeks, except to give a random like to a passing post I enjoyed reading for 5 minutes or reply to a comment someone left me on my blog. I don’t really have a negative or positive opinion for my absence. Life goes on everywhere. There was a time in…… Continue reading Checking In After An Absence

Fitness Shenanigans

I’ve been using a LETSCOM fitness watch since about June 2018 to track my daily step count and today I upgraded to a FitBit Alta HR watch. It was a Christmas gift from a family member, which I opened this morning (Christmas Day 🙂 ). I did not unbox the watch and begin the process…… Continue reading Fitness Shenanigans

Skin Upkeep

I’ve done poorly with foot hygiene. I paid very little mind to mosturizing my feet and sanitizing my sneakers. Until now. I recently washed the insoles of my shoes, using a fresh toothbrush to scrub with a vigorous lather of soap and water. When everything was washed away, I watched a river of caked on…… Continue reading Skin Upkeep

Early Bird

The first day getting back to New York on Tuesday morning, I pretty much felt fine with the shift in time zone until about 3 PM when I started getting very tired. Eating an oatmeal dinner at 5 PM, by then I could barely keep my eyes open! I can’t believe I was dozing off…… Continue reading Early Bird

Exercise Freak

I’ve read online that it takes 21 days for a new habit to form. Today is day 50 since I started exercising daily. It began when I got a step tracker wristwatch. I think I mistakenly referred to it in a past post as a FitBit watch but actually the brand I have is a…… Continue reading Exercise Freak

Peculiar Injuries

Luckily, I have never suffered major injuries, like a broken bone or a fracture in my skull. I can’t imagine what the recovery period for those kinds of injuries is like, but for those who lived through it, it is amazing how people’s bodies can bounce back from such things. I would say what I…… Continue reading Peculiar Injuries

Body Aches & Family Drama

I am exhausted today for no particular reason. Maybe it has something to do with me staying up wide awake past the wee hours of midnight after failing to be lulled into dreamland in order to finish reading Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge. I had so many “What the hell, did that just happen?” moments while…… Continue reading Body Aches & Family Drama

In a Crazy Rush

I hate being in a rush for anything! Sometimes it is my fault for not having enough time to get prepared or do things in advance because I procrastinate or made bad decisions without caring about the consequences. A problem I used to frequently have was getting so anxious and worked up just from thinking…… Continue reading In a Crazy Rush
