Starting off August PROACTIVE
This month I am starting off August strong. I have a lot of things happening this month and I need to stay organized and on top of things.
First: I will be finishing my second semester of nursing school in a couple of weeks. Once this semester finished I need to compile ALL my notes and organize the coursework in case I need it for later.
Second: I will be moving to Arizona OFFIICIALLY in about 3 or so weeks. I am stressed but, it’s manageable. I am packing up the rest of my stuff that I’m bringing and cleaning and organizing along the way.
Thirdly: Finding a job! It’s weird to look for a job in a whole other state. It’s proving to be difficult but I am trying to stay positive. I wish I was able to telework with my Fire Inspecting job but at the moment it doesn’t seem plausible.
Lastly: I’m slowly trying to get back into streaming videogames. I always have loved playing and I used to stream little bit before but got super busy. While I’m still busy I’m starting to manage and organize my time better and actually learn how to stream. I think it will be a fun pastime to pursue and a nice way to relax.
I’ll keep this short and simple because I know this month will go by quick! Goodluck out there! 💚

Hypercarbia is defined as the increase of carbon dioxide within the bloodstream. Another name that might be used instead is Hypercapnia. This can be caused due to hyperventilation or not being able to breathe properly.
Some of the symptoms that might be seen are:
- Drowsiness or the inability to focus
- Flushed looking skin
- Headaches and feeling disoriented
- Feeling short of breath or fatigued
If feeling abnormal seek medical treatment or consult your physician.
Time to Ring in the New Year
I hope everyone celebrated the new year safely and happily. This new year I will be doing it a little differently. I usually like to make resolutions to try and achieve by the end of the year. However, I tend to undershoot and end up disappointed that I didn’t set out to do. Instead, I will be doing my normal life and just being as positive and proactive as I can be. This takes some stress off of my shoulders and will hopefully let me spend this year better. I’m seeing this as a trial period and how it turns out.
How did you celebrate the new year? Any goals or new ways to spend the year?

The journey of my tea advent calendar has finally come to an end. I finished the last of the teas. I enjoyed this advent calendar more so than the traditional chocolate ones. One of the reasons is because each day was something new to try and look forward to. A new flavor and a new saying that goes with each one.
- Day 13 – wild apple & cinnamon – From old orchards apples come with sweet and spicy cinnamon. Perfect Christmas heaven.
- Day 14 – peppermint & licorice – Minty cool, sweet with delight. The perfect post feast treat.
- Day 15 – lemongrass & ginger – Herbs to bring a little Christmas zing to your day- a lemony kick to stir your soul.
- Day 16 – relax – Find a quiet moment. Let marshmallow root and chamomile flowers be your gentle calm.
- Day 17 – Chamomile vanilla & manuka honey – dusky vanilla infused chamomile. Sweet manuka to bring a smile.
- Day 18 – licorice & cinnamon – Cinnamon and cacoa- sweeter still with licorice. No more heavenly brew than this.
- Day 19 – tulsi clarity – For when all is frantic. Let sacred herbs bring clarity to your Christmas.
- Day 20 – three chamomile – Sit back on a bed of flowers. Chamomile will let the hours gently flow.
- Day 21 – cleanse – Here is a tea of cool mint green. Sparkle and glow with a Christmas sheen.
- Day 22 – after dinner – Tea for after dinner.
- Day 23 – three licorice – As sweet as sweet can be with three forms of licorice blended beautifully for tea.
- Day 24 – three fennel – Only Santa need be awake. These are the herbs to magic you to Christmas Day.
I hope everyone had a safe and amazing Christmas. With New Years on the way stay safe, celebrate and ring in the New Year! To trying new things, and always looking forward to new things.
Freshly-cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin— inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night.
