Feeling Like a Fraud

by I don’t know if it’s because it’s January and I haven’t worn flip flops in months or if it’s the never ending search for (full time) work that I actually want to be doing. I don’t know if it’s a case of mild depression or if I am just plain LAZY. But I do know I have zero motivation right now. I feel defeated.

On Getting Distracted

And before we know it, another day has passed and we have accomplished nothing on the “do great things today” list. I am TERRIBLE at being distracted.

I have no idea what actual DAY it is.) Anyhoo, this is the time of year when people think about what they’ve accomplished and what they have yet to accomplish and what they hope to accomplish.
