Personal Stories


Hello All,

After working and going to school full time since September 2013 – I’ve decided to take a one month break from school which started today. I’ve worked on classes during birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, NYE, my birthday, Valentine’s Day, and Easter (did I miss a holiday) with NO break.  My brain has finally acquiesced and said “enough Ms. Garland.”

Again, I’ve saved a lot of what I’ve written in classes and plan to place them on my blog.  I want a running diary of my course work until my completion of my degree and to show how I’ve progressed during my education.  They can be QUITE DRY and I apologize – I am posting them all tonight to get it done and over with so I can start posting my own writings.

My plan: write something to you all everyday for the next 30 days with the exception of 1. Memorial Day weekend as that is my anniversary and I plan to run to the hills for some solitude.  In fact, I can’t remember when I’ve had 5 days off without being 1. deathly ill or 2. having some type of trauma….so I am looking forward to it.

So I hope you enjoy my writings thus far.  They will be marked as college work so if you wish to ignore it – you have the choice.  At least tomorrow you all will have something new and refreshing to read that is not 1. school work, and 2. in a APA Sixth Edition format – how boring!

Have a great evening ~
