I feel like fall is in the air and I'm a little sad. Under the circumstances, I did a lot more this summer than I thought was possible. I did get to hike and be outside... I started taking better care of myself and I need to keep up some of those behaviors... if I [...]
I saved a butterfly from the road today and fed it sugar water. Butterflies can’t feel pain and only live a few short weeks apparently. How precious and fleeting. It’s chillin’ on my deck among flowers. Even if it’s in its final moments, I’m sure they will be good ones.
Calling all professors Calling all professors Especially the new ones--- Who feels overwhelmed about the Fall semester? *raises hand* I'm trying to remember that it's normal to be nervous as a new-ish professor. I'm trying to remember that teaching online is inherently stressful when you didn't plan to teach online. I'm trying to remember that [...]
Greetings! I can't believe it is already August. 2020 appears to have sucked time into a void or something. Anyway, I will be attempting to blog every day of August.

Let's just start by saying relational trauma is a thing. And it can make connecting with people especially hard. I realize that certain tendencies within myself are trauma responses. My tendency to clean when I'm anxious and don't feel well. Why do kids who grow up in unstable environments feel the need to be perfect [...]
I want to try to blog every day in December. Not sure how that will go, but what the heck. I'll try. The semester is winding down. I present at a forensics conference Tuesday. Teach Thursday and work Friday ... but I'm anxious about Friday apparently for a dumb reason: I have to wear a [...]
I went out ballroom dancing for the first time in years, same place I used to go and it truly was like I never left. I did think people would forget me for some reason so it was nice to be pleasantly surprised that you are still part of a group that means so much [...]
