Struggles and some
It’s a really lengthy post. A biography of sorts relating to the spiritual struggles I’ve been through. I rarely ever talk about this with people, I think I’ve only really told a couple of really close friends all this. Meh. I literally sat at work, during my lunch break ignoring food and kept writing what I’ve been troubled with. Basically I’m a prideful being...
When I get home from work I will post a terribly long post of thoughts that have repeatedly occured during work. Be prepared. Or actually, I’ll just put the “read more” link to protect your dashes and it will allow those who want to know the opportunity to dissect my thoughts and struggles.
I DESPISE MONDAY MORNINGS
I cannot reiterate to you enough how much it sucks to roll out of bed, roll to the bathroom to look acceptable in public, roll around in clean laundry until you find appropriate work clothing and then roll to your car WHERE CATS SEEM TO MIGRATE TO, HOLD YOUR BREATH AND GET INTO THE CAR HOPING THAT THE ENGINE SCARES THEM AWAY and then get to work, in traffic, with angry Houstonian drivers.
Me: Aidan, say Tina!
Me: NAH. NAH. TEE NAH.
Aidan: TA TA TEE TAH
Aidan: high pie? (high five)
Me: I'm not gonna reward you with a high five until you can say my name.
Aidan: HIGH PIEE HIGH PIE HIGH PIEE!
Aidan: Tita no no! (he shook his fingers at me and walked away)

This is different for me. I’m overwhelmed. Crampy. Overly emotional (I started bawling with Cullen on the phone last night over EVERYTHING.) and I’m craving too many things all at once. I’m incredibly overwhelmed. With what? Things that I’ve only told a handful of people. Things that I still don’t have the courage to confront. But we’re all in this now. But...
jeaniee asked: I actually got this old film camera recently on ebay so I've been playing around with it! A lot of pictures turned out weird because of the fact that I'm still playing around and figuring things out, but i loveeee it though. :)
Conversations with Grandma
My maternal grandmother (the only living one) was at home cooking dinner when I surprised her with a visit. She hasn’t ever seen me behind a wheel (every time we visit Houston, my parents drive, not me) and she recognized my car as my uncles car but…with a female inside. So she kind of hid away, wanting strangers to leave me alone. Finally after she looked through her peephole and saw...

I woke up pretty excited to work, and went through a daily routine of fun laboratory procedures. Around lunch I mellowed out as I sat eating a small protein bowl (this dish my God mom made me) and I just played Crystal Defense while texting Sara and Cullen. After work went to do some Zumba with the office ladies in the pediatric department, and then spent 30 minutes in a 109 degree room with 50%...

jayparkinsonmd: Over 1.5 million children die every year from preventable diarrhea in the world. That’s way too many kids dying and parents suffering from the loss of a beautiful child. And this is almost 100% preventable with vaccines. For those people who are spreading the anti-vaccine gospel, shame on you. Vaccines are one of humankind’s most profound accomplishments. And I’m sure each and...
