Choices

People tell you you can be anything you want when you grow up. But not every dream you have along the way will bring you satisfaction and happiness. Life changes, our experiences teach us things, and our perspectives change. Wherever your dreams take you, have fun along the way, because the end isn’t the most important—it’s how you lived.

I’m baaack!

After a small break I’ve revised some strategies and am ready to get back to my blog. Nothing spectacularly earth-shattering emerged while away, just some new approaches that will hopefully pay off in the long run. What are you working on?

Backup Plans for Dragons

Sometimes you can be prepared to slay a dragon, but sometimes the dragon still wins. This is why backups are good to have in place, because sometimes things don’t work out. Morale of today’s post: don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Lost and Found

My husband loses a lot of stuff, so we got tiles to keep track of it all. And it works great, until the battery dies. Some things just join the missing socks in the ether.

Getting my mojo back

Have you ever had a scare in pursuing a passion? I had one last year with inventing where I got flash burned. I didn’t go blind, but I took that as a sign to pursue my writing more. Now I am starting back slowly with experimenting, but it’s definitely taken a back seat to everything else.

Going Back

If you could change something about your life, what would it be? For me, I think I would have explored my options and started my freelance hustling earlier. When I was going to school for my science degree, it was mostly pushed that teaching or research were the only options. When I graduated, I started […]

98. You are a warrior

I know some people are scared with this pandemic going on. While I’ve been enjoying all the alone time, there’s been instances where I wondered about the future: how will all of this end up?

88. Building off failure

Inventing is a numbers game. Edison said it the best, “I found 10,000 ways not to make a lightbulb.” Nowadays, you can google how a lightbulb works and it seems like common sense. But when candles were the only source of light at night, no one had a clue how a lightbulb worked. This resonates […]

I have doubts about continuing my business, and even my blog. On those days, I do not make any important decisions, or any decision if I can get […]

59. Quote Dissection 2

One of the universal things out there is failure. I don’t know any person that has not failed at something. Failure is a right of passage; a way to gain experience and grow in wisdom. Not everything goes right the first time because we just don’t know enough to make it go right. Some people […]
