I'm really good at making to-do lists, and I'm getting better at *doing* the stuff on the lists. I *do* need to work on, however, time management skills. I'm a good procrastinator and get my stuff done, but not without stress. Just one of these ... Read more

Not a whole lot to say today... just here for consistency's sake. Today: - drink lots of water at work - tackle some tasks that I've been putting off (for no good reason) - schoolwork and cleaning tonight after work Happy Monday!... Read more

I'm kinda proud of myself this morning. I've had it on my to-do list for at least two weeks to paint my nails (side note: when I was teaching, my nails got chipped often, so I've not painted them in a while). But since I am not teaching anymore,... Read more

I love making lists. I love making lists so much, in fact, that the actual tasks *on* the list are secondary to the actual list. For example - I wanted to put an alarm on my phone reminding myself to get ready for bed at a decent hour. Naturally... Read more

Happy February! I feel like I write this every month, but I really do love turning the calendar page. I love the symbolism and the fresh start. This month I'm choosing to focus on three wellness areas - Physical Emotional/Spiritua... Read more

Yesterday I learned that there always seems to be food around at my job. And not just little bites, but trays of sweets, pretzels, cookies, all kinds of stuff. I need an extra dose of motivation so I don't eat everything in sight! Somethin... Read more

It's going to be a busy day! There is a big meeting today at work - it's a once a month meeting, and this is my first one since starting my new job. I want to make a good first impression! Then I have to jet off to one of my grad classes - the d... Read more

The good news is that my grad class for tonight is cancelled because of the snow. I like my grad classes, but I do not like coming home from the classes to try and find parking. Parking is tight in my neighborhood, so the less I have to move my ... Read more

We got about two feet of snow in Philly, so today was filled with shoveling and digging out. I spent most of yesterday reading and getting stuff done around the house, and still managing to fit in a nap. This week I need to focus on getting... Read more

I just realized that the date on yesterday's blog was wrong. Oops. No matter. Another peaceful morning before work. The (loose) plan yesterday was that I would get up early and run before work. But I didn't go to sleep until almost 11:00 la... Read more

Well, today is it. It's my last day of my current job. The last day of me being a music teacher for the foreseeable future. Maybe forever...? Long story short, I was laid off in 2012 from a job that I LOVED. Moved to Philly for a fresh sta... Read more

This week is going to take all my strength to get through. It's my last week of teaching before I start my new job! I'm really excited, but I've already kind of mentally checked out of this job. I guess that sounds kind of terrible. I have ... Read more

Again, blogging for consistency's sake. Right now, for me, the most important part of my Sparking and running is to do it consistently, even if it's only a short post/run. I need to make these things habits again. I won't go into it too muc... Read more
