Avoiding Burnout

November 23rd, 2019 Competition

Competition Number 5 was on November 23rd, 2019. This time my (dance) coach and I headed out to the middle of nowhere to get a second opinion. It was in Farnham. So legit an arena in the middle of the bush. Now, this week. I have been having severe pain with my knees. While I…

1 Year without Coffee

So, it has officially been a year that I cut coffee out of my life and pretty much all caffeine. The only caffeine I have is when I drink tea and normally it is a 1/5 star on the caffeine rating. Over the years I used to abuse coffee. Sometimes I would put double shots…

Back in Action

I got a new computer. I will go see if my mac can be fixed. However, it seems to be a problem with the keyboard getting wet. And I believe that happened when I did a post at the beach. But I have a good alternative and it will at least get me through this…

Hospitalization ~ 06/13/19

06/13/2019 –> I ended up in the hospital. But let’s discuss how I got there. I was in class on Thursday morning and it was basically to hand in my final essay before my last class the following week. During the class, I started burning up. It felt like my body especially my upper body,…

Binge Eating -Relapse 2.0

I have already publicly spoken out about Binge Eating. I have been suffering it for years. Yet, no matter what treatment I seem to get, it does not fully go away. And truthfully I don’t think it every will. This is not me being pessimistic, I feel like it is more related to a mentality…

These past few days I have been completing mid-terms and finals for two different classes (with a third class about to start). However, my body has also been flaring. There has been some unbearable body pain (that has been getting better over the past few days). A few days ago it hurt just to sit…
