I’ve dreamed of being a business owner most of my life. My mother was an entrepreneur and so was my grandfather. It was in my blood. I watched my mother run a business growing up and thought I knew what it all entailed. But there are some things that you just don’t know or understand […]
Keto Diet vs Real Life
I’ve been trying to stick to a strict Keto diet for the last couple of months. For the most part I’ve been doing so so. I think it’s been mostly lazy and dirty Keto, rather than strict. But he’ll I’ve been living off fast food and delivery for 10 years, I think I can give […]
Confessions of a Serial Journaler – part 1
I am a serial journaler. I buy journals, a lot. Like all year long, a lot. I start them, very seldom do I finish them, but I start them with a passion and fervor that is quite strong. I’ve always been this way. Even as a little girl I had several journals, diaries they were […]
Does it “Spark Joy”?
I’m going to warn you now. It’s a slow day at my main work, and normally I would have been playing around on Facebook. But now that I am not allowing myself to play on FB or IG or other social media, so I will be here, writing. All. Day. Long. At least just when […]

New Year – New Goals
So here I am, the last day of 2018, and all I can think about is all the change that has come along in the last half of the year. My word for 2018 was “Relax”, and although I fought with it quite a bit, I did relax a lot. I relaxed on chasing perfection. […]
Mondays – great or crappy, you choose?
What AM I looking at? I don’t even know, that’s how blurry this morning was when I took this picture. That’s generally how I start my weeks as well…. what?? Where am I? Why are my eyes open? How do I move these heavy legs? The weekends go by way too fast. Especially when you […]

On today’s episode of “What’s Wrong With Christine Now?” we find Christine dragging her right leg more than usual. We can tell there’s some pain in her right hip, possible her lower back. However, she has not been on her feet for long, nor has she taken a long walk at any point in the […]
Social Anxiety & The Social Butterfly
I have a dilemma. I am at the same time, both socially awkward and a social butterfly. Maybe it’s not so much a dilemma as it is a paradox. I love the IDEA of parties, events, big social gatherings… but I don’t really like attending them. Or more to the point I don’t like THINKING […]
