#Weekend Coffee Share: Time For a New Guy? Perhaps…

Hi there, Coffee Share Peeps! Today, we’re having our coffee (or tea, in my case) in the local IHOP. I just got my nails done, and I still need to go to the grocery store, but I didn’t want to go to the store hungry, so…

Monday’s Motivation: Finding Work-Life Balance Through Bullet Journaling

If you’ve been keeping up with the Weekend Coffee Share posts, you know that the last few weeks of my life have all been about finding that work-life balance. Namely, recognizing that they were completely out of balance, and trying to find a way to get them back into balance.

After spending 48 hours without sunlight week before last, and then beginning last week with food poisoning because I was too lazy to go grocery shopping, I realized something had to give. But I was also aware that some things were already going better… albeit only when I stick to my plan (which I hadn’t been doing).

Believe it or not, I am more organized now than I have ever been in the past, and it is all thanks to my bullet journal.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: Found my rhythm.

Good morning (or evening, or afternoon) Coffee Share Peeps! This week I have been in much higher spirits (I think) than the last time I posted. So we’re drinking coffee at the counter height dining table in the breakfast nook while I prepare for the #JustAddTea writing chat (on Twitter). Help me keep an ear out for the laundry; it has to be swapped soon and I forgot to turn on the buzzer for when it’s done.

It’s laundry day…

Weekend Coffee Share: It’s gonna be a busy school year.

This weekend, if we were sharing stories, we’d be curled up with something soothing. I’m having some detox tea, and while I’ve had my shower, I’ve put my jammies back on. I have serious plans to do almost nothing today.

Maybe play some Sims 4… but other than that, I’m not doing anything else today!

Weekend Coffee Share: And so it begins…

Good evening (or good morning… depending on your POV)! This week, if we were sharing details of our personal lives over coffee, mine would be decidedly decaf!

I’m writing to you while all curled up and ready for bed. It’s after midnight and the #JustAddTea Twitter party will be going down in less than 11 hours… and I haven’t slept yet…

Weekend Coffee Share: Is it really over?

This weekend, if we were sharing coffee, it would be the blonde roast that was a gift from my student, and we’d be curled up in our PJ’s. A kind of slumber party version of the Weekend Coffee Share. And a short post at that.

Not much has happened over the last couple of weeks.

That Friday Feeling: The Beauty of a BuJo

Over Lughnasadh, I mentioned that I’ve found a way to balance my “real life” with my “spiritual life” using a Bullet Journal. My “real life” includes all those little tasks that are boring but necessary… like chores and a job, whereas my “spiritual life” is what I used to call all the little things I’m drawn to, including my creativity and my desire to help people.

The last few years, I’ve learned that those “real life” tasks are often in the category of “executive functioning skills,” and that is one of those areas where some people on the spectrum (myself included) struggle.

So what exactly are “Executive Functioning Skills?” And how can a bullet journal help?
