Why I hate Brussel Sprouts

So…sometimes I fill my plate too full, and by “sometimes” I mean pretty much all the time, as those of you who know me, already have ascertained.
My plate right now, is full to the point of breaking…Part of this is necessity as I need both of my jobs in order to exist and I just renewed my apt lease for another year so perhaps I should stay employed.
Most of my plate is full by choice. I, for example, choose to pursue my PhD in Education AND to pursue my life as an author. I love both of these choices and honestly am going to feel a little lost when the PhD is complete. Some may question the logic of pursuing them both at the same time, but would I really be ME if I had focused on one at a time…come on now.
The problem with having both of these HUGE helpings on my plate simultaneously is that once in a while some Brussel sprouts find their way on to my plate, and the smelly, odd green things cause chaos or panic to ensue.
On Monday, the Brussel sprouts attacked, and I panicked.
I was instantly sure I was not capable of making it as an author nor was I capable of completing my PhD…both of which are ridiculous. First of all, I am not alone in thinking that my stories are wonderful…and my PhD, really…to get this far and then not finish…not a chance.
But with my full plate…yeah, that is why I hate Brussel sprouts.



  1. I hear ya! I’ve been doing the exact same thing lately. I really don’t feel there is a problem with wanting everything for ourselves. We can handle…at least most of the time.
    Hang in there!

    • Most days things are handled…and on days when they aren’t…I just have some ice cream. LOL
