somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
Forgot to check in here today.
Thanks guys for telling me about your college experiences. I consider you all successful adults so I imagine Billy will find his way too. He wants to apply to a few 4 yr state schools even though he is fine (as we are) with starting at the CC level and
transferring later. Even I did not want to be a teacher until I was looking at grad school. I graduated from Wells with a BA in Spanish and a minor in Russian Studies. Then it hit me..."What the hell do I do with that degree?". Luckily, teaching was the right fit for me. lol
The EMF protocol is working out extremely well. I am probably eating a higher fat percentage (80%) and higher cals(1850) than almost everyone on the EMF thread, but It is working great for me. I lost 2 more lbs overnight (I know, not supposed to be weighing). So in total it took 8 days to lose what I put on in 7. Not bad.
Canio - Believe me there is still plenty of arse hanging out there. : )
NK - Love the "C's make degrees" quote. I will tell that one to my son and Husband.

One of my favorite quotes:
What do you call a med student that graduates last in his class?
Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Yep. C's make degrees. I walked with a 2.5. Does that make me less of an engineer than the people that walked with a 4.0? Nope. I'm still eligible for my PE and licensure.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

yep once you are working on your terminal degree you just need enough to get through. what a relief!

My "Program": doing my version of a 5:2 -2 day fast diet with real food every day
My calorie count is in the 1500's so I may not be too far behind you on higher cals.
My college experience caused me a lot of angst and depression. I actually think that I would have been better off going undecided instead of going in as a Theater major. IF I were to go back, I still have no clue what I would go back for. I don't think it'll happen for me.
Feeling nauseous and headachey today. Hope it isn't the flu. My students are going to the nurse in droves.
It's going around here too. I felt cruddy most of this week. Am finally on the upswing. Hope you feel better soon!!!
Paula, go you on your EMF!!!! And thank YOU for inspiring the group. It's awesome.
I was single a long time before marrying and an only child who lived alone for many of my adult years. It's been challenging for me to deal with living and caring for a man in my house. I hav e to remind myself how lonely and lackluster life could be when I was on my own.
I am in rehearsals right now and still dealing with dinner most nights bc he works nights, or goes to school on the other nights. I was just thinking last night that he gets soooo much help from me when he is busy, but when I am busy, I don't. If he doesn't get a day job with steady pay soon, I may not be able to be as sweet and supportive a wife as I usually am. When I have pms, my deeper feelings tend to fall out too. My therapist told me once those were feeling I wasn't dealing with and the hormones just let the veil down on them. So I always examine things I get upset about during that time, so I can let them out or let them go. If only I could just hang out in the red tent and not deal with all of that for a few days, it would be amazing.
Keep it up, the dealing with your emotions and self care. It is important work for ourselves and our loved ones.
