Finally Unicorns and Puppies!

Greetings Everyone!

Wow it’s been a while since I written anything at all.  To tell you the complete truth, I first of got lazy and then when I wanted to write something school got in the way.  I struggled to get everything in on time.  By the way, who the hell gives a surprise midterm?  Oh wait that’s my History of Jazz professor…He is the only one out of ALL of my teachers that I’ve had that pulled that trick on us.  The fact that I managed to get a B+ on it astounds me.   However midterms aside, my Sign Language final was fracking hard, when I mean hard, half of the sentences that I had to translate, I had a “What the hell” face on.  Aside if this I do know the five main parts of Cochlear Implants and what they do.  I drilled that in my head 20 minutes before exam…really.  I didn’t do well as I wanted to do.

From all of this I had been disconnected from the known world.  I really felt myself slip into the virtual world with just my laptop and a few social network sites, Tumblr being the new one. It seems that with everything that is going on you just want to sit in the corner, hug your favorite teddy bear and wish that every thing would just be done.  It wasn’t really anxiety, but yet stress that also kept making me sick.  I was losing class time that I needed. With that came allergies and sinus infections.  Yes it was not a good semester at all, health wise.  

Aside of that my life just started to calm down after the big rush on setting up for a Jazz concert that my History of Jazz class put on.  Of course all of my hard work went down the tube when my memory stick died in the middle of trying to find a decent computer to print the programs.  However I make kick-ass cookies!       

The Town Witch 2012 Challenge is still going on and I haven’t abandoned that.  So that’s good news.  Remember you can get on this challenge too. 

Thanks for understanding my reasons why I haven’t had a blog for a while.

#2012TWChallenge update.


If you are following me on twitter you might know about the challenge that I put up a few weeks ago. If you don't know about it I suggest that you go here.

In a few days I'm starting up the spring semester and It's going to be interesting. I'm taking three classes and after that I only have to take two more in order to transfer down to SUNY New Paltz. So again this challenge is going to help me try to get at lease a B+ or better. There is a math course involved so that's why I say a B+.

Here are a list of things that I am trying to do for the challenge

I've been trying to get up earlier so that I have more to do in the day.
I've been using sticky notes to help me keep track of important events and due dates on certain things.
I also made a calendar out of them.
I've been trying to post inspirational sayings around my work area.
I've been trying to keep my work area organized. Not working so well, I need to organize again
I've been trying to keep my place clean...not working well.
After classes start I'm going to try to limit my social networking to about 2-3 hours a day. I have these sites on more than that...
I also put organize and I list various reasons from it will help you look for stuff to it helps you relax to know where your things are.

I am journaling all of this down and trying to use it as a resource for others. As I mentioned in the last post!

It's been a struggle so far but it's only been two weeks.

Remember you can get on this to, it's not too late to start!

2012 and a Challenge.


Welcome to the first edition of the 2012 Town Witch blog! For a few days now I've been trying to transform something that is a bit of a burden around and I have struggled with it. On the 5th of this month I decided to take up a transformational project that includes trying to manage my time and to organize my life better. Last semester I didn't do so well due to my lack of time management, so I decided to take up the project at the beginning of the year. I'm doing this not to do it as some sort of new years resolutions because like I said I really don't make them. However I do make goals and my goal is to better organize my self and to journal about it.

This is a challenge to myself to keep myself organized for this coming semester approaching. I also really want to get into the Early child education joint program with Suny New Platz and so that is the other reason why I'm doing this. I really want to get very good grades this year and by doing a yearly time management challenge for myself will help a whole lot. I also hope to write a lot and in the future publish it so that others can see that even someone who procrastinates can get her tail in gear and use different organizational and time management techniques. This is more of a experience book than a how to book.

Guess what! If anyone is up to a challenge then please read on and then decide of you want to do a "Challenge Accepted" face.

Challenge: I would like it if you would pick something from your life that you want to better. Something that is small that can be faced with little baby steps that can be done in a year or so. Think of it as a short term goal set with small goals in between. I then want you to journal your way through the year. Journal your thoughts, your experiences, quotes of the day, ETC that relates or semi relates to what your goal is about. It doesn't matter what just as long as it's something that doesn't take ten years to complete. Make sure it has to do with something that you can change that will help you in the long run. I'm taking up a time management challenge, what are you doing?

If you choose to do it please let me know and if you have experiences that you want to share tweet it. #2012TWChallenge is the hashtag.

Remember this is totally optional!
