I haven't been feeling great today and it's my own fault. I didn't go to bed until 4AM this morning and I feel like a bus hit me. Whenever I'm off work my body clock regulates to me going to bed around 2AM and waking up at 10AM. At any rate, I forced myself into the bed at 4AM and fell out of the bed at 9:15AM. I did so because I have to go to work tomorrow and that 6AM alarm will hurt me after a week and a half on my vampire sleep schedule. At any rate, lack of sleep coupled with other things had me feeling like pure crap.
All that to say, it's 6:33PM and I just got to my 2nd assignment for the 31 Days to Reset Your Life Challenge. Don't know what I'm talking about? Let me start at the beginning.
As mentioned in this post, I am doing the 31 Days to Reset Your Life Challenge from HappyBlackWoman.com. Here is my post from day 1. I'm going to read the day 2 assignment and come back and edit this post when I have it completed.

Conduct a Life Assessment
Love ~ I love blogging & vlogging.
Hate ~ I like my actual house but don't like how far away from everything it is and wish I lived closed to civilization. I also miss having a pet.
Love ~ I make money.
Hate ~ This is honestly the biggest place of grief in my life. My deepest fear is that I will die and never figure out what I was supposed to be doing. That said, I have worked in corporate jobs since I graduated college in 1997, and have not wanted to do so since the year after I graduated from college in 1998. That would put me at starting my 13th year of not wanting to work corporate jobs but doing so any way and feeling stuck because of it.
Love ~ I got my B.S. early from a very good school.
Hate ~ Not much. I guess I should say I hate that I've started TWO masters degrees and have not finished either, but I don't feel any way about that. Sometimes I feel like I want to go back to school one day and study sociology or behavioural science but it's not a strong pull yet, just a weak inkling. I have no clue what I'd even do with such a degree, just think the subjects are interesting.
Love ~ All is well. Hubby and I really did well early in our marriage buckling down and paying off most of our debts. We're not perfect but I think we're in a really good spot; so much so that when I was off work for 4 months a year ago we were o.k.
Hate ~ The only thing I can even think of saying here is a change in our sustainable income without my corporate job would result in me not having to work said corporate job. Even though I'm thankful for my job and what it provides, that would be o.k. with me.
Love ~ I'm not suffering from depression as badly as I have in past years. Don't get me wrong, it comes and goes but NOTHING like before and I can manage it for the most part. This makes life more livable.
Hate ~ I'm not fond of all the leg issues I've had in the past year but I've learned from the experience. I'm not fond of learning about my adrenal fatigue issues but it FINALLY explained what no one else could for YEARS of me suffering. I'm not fond of having to manage depression but I'm thankful that I can manage it.
Love ~ I am blessed & everyone is in good health. My relationships are great with everyone that I want it to be great with (lol, like that disclaimer?).
Hate ~ There's a lot of "dysfunction" in my family that I don't talk about much here on my blog/online-life in the name of privacy. Let's just say I could do without much of it & did without much of this brand of dysfunction most of my life … until I got my new family … and I am NOT fond of it … and that's all I have to say about that.
Love ~ This is where I shine so all is well.
Hate ~ I'm gonna plead the 5th on this one too and say "God is working it all out for my good. It is well".
Ok all done for day #2!
See you tomorrow!
