  • What determines your measure of success as far as blogging is concerned?

My answers to last week’s S.Y.K.

  1. Do you see a therapist? If so, how does doing so influence your life? I have recently began seeing a therapist, again. My track record with them has been 2 for 5..and I am on the 2 of the five. This is my time seeing a therapist in private practice. All of the one’s prior have been in a clinic setting and were seen on an emergency basis. I was in crisis when I search for therapist who takes my insurance and I am extremely lucky to have clicked on the one I did. We have only had one session but I already know she’s the one for me. She was sent to me for sure!!! Not sure why but I’ve never disclosed all of my “ugly” to my therapist and yet when I sat with her, it all came gushing out. Even the things I’ve not ever said. For the times that I’ve had success with my therapist, the impact has been rewarding and validating.
  2. What is your favorite part of adulthood? Your least favorite (besides bills)? I suppose the only joy in adulthood for myself is being able to say that I am an adult although I do not feel like one. The freedom of it is nice but the extent in which I feel free is limited because I live with my Ma. It is only recently that I’ve began respecting her home as a place to live. Previously I treated it as a hotel of sorts. I would stay out with friends all night only coming here to shower. I have lived with her and my sister off and on my entire life yet I never “lived” with them. I never fully unpacked my belongings or stayed around long enough to have family time. I would come and go with my hours of operation opposite of theirs. During the school year my hours would be more predictable due to being on my daughter’s schedule.
  3. Are the government officials of your country trustworthy? I pled the fifth. I have no opinions when it comes to politics but I will say Louisiana is known for its crooked politicians.
  4. How important, scale of 1-10, are leprechauns in the evolution of humans? 1-of least importance 10-required Being that I am a second generation immigrant, my dad is from Belfast, I would say 10. Without those wee fellas I am afraid there would be no me!!

  1. -How long have you blogged? What is the anniversary?
    Two months! My first post was during the last week of March.
    -What was your original purpose for beginning a blog?
    I wanted to make a blog catered to nursing students and give advice on things like applying to schools and study tips.
    Did you research about blogging before establishing your own?
    I researched a little bit, but mostly, I learned as I went. 🙂
    Has your purpose evolved or changed directions? If so, what was the determining factor for the change?
    Very much so! It turned into my nursing journey laid bare, and that has to do with dealing with mental health issues. I found this supportive community of people, and I realized that non-nursing students can share in my experiences too!
    What determines your measure of success as far as blogging is concerned?
    Encouraging more people is my ultimate goal. I think part of the reason I post is to hold myself accountable for my actions too.

    1. I love it!!! I have a question… Do you blog using your laptop or the app on your phone? Of you use both, which do you use more? Thanks so much, Christie and I love that you have found your way into this amazing community of supportive bloggers. Not sure where I would be without them.

      1. Aww, yeah people are so kind on here. I’d say I use both, but I use my phone to read blogs and add comments. For writing my own, I just prefer my laptop because I like to write a lot and and it’s just easier for me type something long using the computer keyboard. Also, I like the big screen. 🙂 Your questions have been fun to answer, btw!
