Week of Craziness JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - October 2, 2015 ... orientation at JP Catholic went: it was an adventure. See, the day before the trip I decided to try the Trader Joe's chicken taquitos. I usually don't try anything new the day before a trip or an exam because of how sensitive my stomach is but I was hungry and it was the only thing that we had to eat. Big mistake! I woke up the morning of orientation at 3:30 a.m. with the worst stomachache. I thought about calling my friend Joe (who had offered to drive me ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/10/week-of-craziness.html

Grad School Worries and Academic Pride JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - August 28, 2015 ... assignment for my Fundamental Theology and Biblical Interpretations course (a little over a month early; thank you, Dr. Barber!) I was equal parts excited and intimidated. They're starting us off with St. Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologiæ and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I actually just finished reading through the entire Catechism earlier this summer but I've never really tackled Summa before. I've read bits and pieces (and very few of those) ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/08/grad-school-worries-and-academic-pride.html
Self-Care Is Not Laziness JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - July 27, 2015 ... decent break. With grad school starting in late September, I knew I had to start taking better care of myself in preparation for it. I left my low-paying, high-stress freelance writing job earlier this month. I put my third novel on hold. These days I'm all about the self-care. I'm still "busy"... but it's a busy that is necessary. I keep the apartment clean, vacuuming and dusting twice a week. I wash the dishes by hand. I check how my car is doing on oil and water as well as ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/07/self-care-is-not-laziness.html

In Which Julianna Finally Succeeds in Hijacking the Eucharist KATHLEEN M. BASI - June 22, 2015 ... real key to Michael Mayhem's success is the innocent look he has perfected. It was a bad day in choir. The big boys were out until 10 p.m. the night before for baseball, so of course, Nicholas was falling to pieces long before we finished choir warmup. I've been waking at 4:30 for several days, so my patience was stretched pretty thin. And Michael? I don't know what his deal was, but he was a disaster during Mass. Michael Mayhem in all his glory, only he's ...http://kathleenbasi.com/2015/06/22/in-which-julianna-finally-succeeds-in-hijacking-the-eucharist/
