Personal

For a long time – really, all my adult life, I’ve lived by the axiom “work hard, play hard.” COVID-19 has affected every single one of us in substantial ways, whether we’ve contracted the virus or not. I’ve personally chosen to use this time at home for making some big routine and lifestyle changes; a bit of a rebranding, if you will. While it’s not as catchy, something along the lines of “work efficiently, live effectively.”

Dear Class of 2020: 

Whether you’re a high school senior, college senior, or even an 8th grader right now – this goes out to you. 

I’ve seen everyone posting their senior class photos on Facebook recently – and even participated. This was, apparently, in support of you. Do you feel supported? Do you feel better? 😉 

Be Accountable.

It’s term number six, and it’s a doozy… A word that usually doesn’t come paired with smiles and hugs and raindrops on roses. We all need this word in our life, but we also all typically dislike it. So do kids – whether they realize it or not (often this word can be misinterpreted as nagging, reminding, annoying, etc.).

Most times when I discuss practicing on this blog/site, it’ll be regarding music. Today, I’ll write on my own practice of resilience – a seemingly constant struggle to maintain sanity and keep forging ahead, despite my circumstances.
