  1. In two days I have to prepare what feels like an impossible amount of school work — so just trying to not freak out, and just start with breakfast. Because I’m pretty sure breakfast makes everything better.

  2. I register for college on Monday! I have my teachers picked out based on their ratings online and I hope I get a slot!

    Gods of Education please be on my side!

  3. The guy I’m dating is a sceptic but is interested in me casting a smudge for him. I’m really excited to do this for him (and quite touched he’s interested, actually), but I want to write the spell in a way that relates to his own worldview.

    So I’m going to focus on general grounding, breathing, visualisations – and I’m thinking of at least calling the quarters (in terms of casting a circle or incorporating some general spellwork practices), because it’s a good way to “ground” yourself on the Earth.

    If anyone has any suggestions – some witchy things I could include, which don’t necessitate a belief in Wicca to have an impact – please let me know!

  4. I have more or less a confession I need to make and get off my chest.

    Tl;dr I’m an empath and experienced my first time at failing my own self control and ultimately absorbed and became a negative monster for more or less the duration of my shift at work, and I feel awful about it.

    I’m a nurse, and a very new one at that. I realised just how problematic uncontrolled empathy is in my field very quickly, and learned to channel positive emotion and benefit of the doubt in order to cope with the amount of stress and anxiety people can induce on me. It worked well for a while.

    But last Thursday I had a patient who complained about my level of care to me and my boss and cried in front of me because of a mix up on discharge dates, and her daughter scolded me for something out of my control which I thought she would understand being a nurse herself. I had nothing of hers prepared for discharge because according to every document her discharge was for the following Friday, but because she was under the belief she was being discharged Thursday she wouldn’t stay a day longer.

    I called my manager in to help me explain the situation and she too got a mouth full, and at this point I wanted to cry. I was so full of my patients distress and my own short comings, but to have to bring in my manager just to justify everything that I had said brought me to my last straw. That wasn’t the bad part though.

    For the rest of the day I felt not myself. At every which way I turned I found myself bad mouthing the mother and daughter, bad mouthing my colleagues who at the time I thought had failed to do their job appropriately in terms of discharge organisation. I was blaming myself for being incapable of sorting it all out like I normally do, but instead I felt resentment and didn’t even want to help this family leave the facility. I wrote up the paperwork, handed it to them and said they could go. I didn’t help the daughter carry all the bags out, I didn’t help them collect their things. I did get my colleague PCA to help them but I should never have put that job onto him.

    Now I feel like I can barely pick myself up from this and am struggling to shield myself and change my attitude to what it was and has always been.

    This comes at a really stressful time for me which adds to the reasons as why this has happened. I need to meditate and ground myself but my motivation is just so poor after this.
