Relational Therapy Class Notes

Advice my Relational Therapy professor repeats almost every class: learn to hear your inner voice as you listen to another person.

We did all these things, however my professor was particularly interested in the…

Travel Art Journaling in the PNW: Day Trip to Whidbey Island

This summer has been kind to me and offered many opportunities to travel. While it was nice to be home after the long trip in July, I took one last jaunt out of the city in August. It was a great way to savor some of the last days of summer before Seattle’s all-too-short summer…

The Non-Cheat Cheat for Using Google Books to Find Quotes for Academic Papers

For me, one of the best/worst parts of being 6 semesters into my master’s degree studies is that I’m developing a vocabulary and working (but not photographic) memory of the content I’ve studied. In other words, I can speak at length at length about how research has established a link between early childhood psychological trauma…

Mindfulness Bullet Journal Layout – Minimalist Printable Version

I’ve been slowly revamping some of my bullet journal layouts in the last few months.

Instead, I’ve been focusing…

  This term has felt like something of a controlled landslide, and although I have fewer credit hours than the last term, I’ve struggled more to keep up with various areas of my life. To that end, since I’m roughly 10 weeks behind on posting my weekly course notes, I’ve decided to collate the notes from…
