New Adventures in Crystal’s Quest to Live a Life Well Lived.

I have missed writing in this online journal. Now that the school year is done and I’m on break, it’s time to get back to the real work of being a creative entity. Don’t get me wrong. I love my students but as of today, I’m still waiting for my paycheck which I should’ve received last week. Oh, well. I’m just tired of stressing out about it.

It’s time to jump on some of that “active happiness” I’m always talkin’ about. Time to take my own advice.

So, I’m ready…now that I’ve obsessively cleaned my home AND moved all the furniture around in the living room. For some reason, housework has become my therapeutic exercise. When I was a kid, I tried to get out of it. Now, it seems that I’m always finding a way to do it.

Ok, Cancer Woman with ADD. Get to creatin’!


It’s time to make dinner.

I guess I’ll try again later.

Boiling Hot Water All Around…and all want is a SnoCone.

The thing about being a Cancer is this…stop calling us moody when you create the mood. Everyone always assumes that we can’t get a grip on our emotions or that we just create moods, mostly bitterness and anger, out of thin air. Who stops to think, “Oh…maybe she has an attitude because I did something off putting? or “Maybe if I pay attention and learn to listen, not just hear, I’ll learn something”. That’s what we do…to no end. We obsess about how we may have hurt someone, do you?

Nope. It’s just so easy to blame the Cancer. Everyone knows we’re messed up, right?

Well, here’s what I propose.

Kiss my ass.
