So January and Feburary haven’t quite gone as planned. You can probably figure that out based on the quietness here. Nothing about the last two months has been the way I expected. January this year was… weird. I generally spend a good deal of the month working from home. Because of that, January is usually… Continue reading The One Where Magpie Is Angry
So, big news here in Magpie land. I’ve been pretty absent from the interwebs for the last few weeks, and I’ve teased on twitter a number of times that it’s because of some serious life changes happening in the background, but never really specified exactly what was going on. Well, it’s finally time to specify:… Continue reading August/September Wrap-Up, or, “Why Magpie’s Been Away for Three Weeks”
Ah, another month gone, another goals wrap-up post - and June did NOT go as smoothly in terms of goals as I hoped it would. That said, it wasn’t quite the total failure that it could have been. So how’d I do? Well, June was a strange one this year. I spent the first two… Continue reading June Wrap-Up and July Goals
So it’s May. Can we all agree to not know how this happened? Because I really seriously feel like the last two months somehow flew by in the span of a week. I’m not sure how. But I swear it did.

During the lull of the last few months I’ve been... … listening to: America’s Next Top Model. I can’t really say that I’ve been watching it, as it’s mostly just been on in the background as I work. I like seeing the results of the photo shoots, and there’s something about Tyra Banks that I… Continue reading What’s Up, Wednesday?
Blog? Meet Brunhilde. She’s my parent’s new puppy. And she’s awesome. She’s a little bit bold, a little bit clumsy, and all daredevil. Hilde had a rather rough introduction into our lives. Within three hours of bringing her home, she was already adapting well - running around with that excited bliss that only puppies really… Continue reading Meet Hilde
So with my last post, I made the reason for my absence clear - the fact that for a few months there I really felt like my life was out of control, in ways both small and large. A lot of stuff was going on all at once, and in the midst of it all,… Continue reading (Sort of) Triumphant Return
I'm... ...feeling: exhausted. Beyond exhausted. Utterly annihilated. My schedule is turning out to be a lot more brutal time-wise than I had expected it to be. I keep thinking to myself, "What's the matter with me? I had this kind of 7 am to 10 pm schedule in high school, and it seemed so easy… Continue reading Burnout… Already?
