Date / Question
I'm really looking forward to becoming more proficient at stats.
Helping my daughter through her anxiety and depression. Watching her struggles through middle school, which included self-harm was terrifying. I'm so glad we were able to switch her school, get her good help and be there for her in whatever way she needed it. While I think she might still have some tough times ahead, I'm proud of where we've gotten her today.
If so, we are diamonds taking shape. (to quote ColdPlay)
I'm good at tech trouble shooting which is part of how I got my job but I would rather be good at teaching others how to do their own troubleshooting (give a man a fish... teach a man to fish...)
Stand-up paddleboarding - but I'm getting better (growth mindset baby!)
I think I focus on the end-goal. I think about why I have the task that I don't want to do and try to remember why it is important and where it will get me.
It was great to come home and see my family and listen to their stories in person! I also turned around and drove to my parent's house on Sunday and then left Monday for our vacation in Canada. So, it has been kind of a whirlwind.

I am looking forward to my stats class. I am exited to gain a lot more knowledge in this area and hopefully find more time to read and write!
I do not feel as though I have had to encounter a lot of obstacles in my life. I have been on a journey of understanding and reconciling the various parts of who I am, and I feel thankful to have overcome the fear of asking myself what it means to be a Black woman in America at this time. I am finding that there is a lot of empowerment to be found in self defining who you are.
Yes, but over a long period of time!
Sometimes it's shopping, other-times it's a break, so I can get outside.
I was able to sleep in my own bed and I got to see my husband before he left for India.
