New Media Consortium

(See here to hear pronunciation of the 3rd title word. It's cool, everyone's doing it.)

I recently became aware that my grad school has been the recipient of an NMC, which is really cool and you can learn more here. I keep referring back to it in my mind and the pride I feel is deep. I am more than ever at peace with my decision to pursue graduate school. Having just passed my 3yr graduation from undergrad this month, it feels good to be working on what I am. I need to be here. I want to be here. I am evolving. Yesssss.

It is only ¼ of a way through and while I have mostly positive feelings, I have had apprehension. There has also been anxiety, stress, longing for days when I did not have homework every.single.day. But aside from what I can assume is “normal,” I am eager to start my assignments each week, happy to review the various resources available, and I’m thriving for the challenge each publication I craft brings.

Hearing of this award, the NMC, I am provided with more contentment in my choice to take on a graduate program. My inspiration level is on the rise. Goals are back on my radar and quite literally I am working on the next chapter in my story. If nothing else is achieved from writing this down, this can serve as a point of reference to come back on the days I might be on the opposite end of this spectrum. But for this moment, I’m going to ride the wave of happy and do nothing but appreciate my choice.

Wowza,
Meggie

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.

Simple blessings

I’m lying in bed, next to a snoring husband and my baby girl dogter sprawled out cozy as can be, while the rain falls down upon our roof. Gone are the days of spending a Saturday night downtown at a club, throwing beers back in a honky think, or galavanting around to anywhere with the lights on.

And I’m not mad about it. Not even a little bit. There is tilt no place I’d rather be than with hunter, Roni and our comfy sweet little home happily netflixing and writing this here post. It’s a good feeling indeed.

I count my blessings extra on nights like this and say a few additional prayers for love and comfort to continue on. I truly don’t ask for more than health, happiness, and love. Anything else is gravy.

To simple blessings for all.
