Tuesday Thoughts, Thankfulness, Totally Awesome Links

I was so grateful to see this way-too-cute-for-words pairing yesterday. Usually HoneyBun moves when she sees Osito heading toward her bed, but right before this photo was taken, they were snuggled up and sleeping together. ❤ HoneyBun and Osito

Good Tuesday to all of you! This week, I’m thankful for the Patriots having won against the Cardinals on Sunday night’s football game. I admit, without Tom Brady, I was a bit worried about how we would do, but I have a lot of faith in Bill Belichek. To watch the game with some Arizona Cardinals fans, and have the right to talk some smack was just awesome! LOL.  They knew it was all in good fun.

As I announced last week, in my post called What the Heart Wants, I’ve decided to go back to school to become a vet tech, with an eye to possibly working with wildlife in the future, or hospice care for animals. (We’ll see what happens!) Being older and wiser than the first (or second or third) time I achieved a degree, I’m determined to find as many options for scholarships and free money to go to school.  Last week, I mentioned FastWeb. Today, I came across an app called Scholly. They charge $2.99 to join and that’s the only charge, and the app itself is free to download for iPhone and Android.  I don’t watch the show Shark Tank, but I understand his app was featured on that show! Another website I’ve just come across is Scholarships.com – it’s a free database that you can use to look for scholarships, and supposedly is updated every day. I’ll be testing it out this week.

Now, I know not everyone reading this is thinking of going back to school, so I’d like to share another website that I’ve come across recently, and it’s about intentional living (and in part, minimalism, which usually goes hand in hand with intentional living.) It’s called Break the Twitch.  In case you prefer to watch videos over reading text, he makes a lot of videos that you can see on YouTube at this channel

And with this, I need to get off the computer and get ready to go down to the local animal shelter so I can walk some doggies!! Then it’s off to the gym again to try to push myself and sweat a lot! I hope you will all have a wonderful Tuesday! Please feel free to drop me a line below and let me know if there are any amazing links you want to share or think I should highlight in a later post, or what you are feeling thankful for this week!

Also, let me know if you think these posts should come later in the week – would Thursday or Friday be better?

As always, thanks for reading!

  • It’s comforting to have a plan in place! ;-> It concentrates your information seeking to a specific area. Best of luck in finding some financial help with this goal!!!

    • That’s a very good way of putting it – it’s definitely comforting to have a plan. I have a feeling I’m going to like Albuquerque from what my two friends tell me about it. A third friend didn’t like it, but some of her reasons are things that don’t bother me so much. And yes, I can’t wait to start getting some scholarships!

      • There is a lot to photograph in New Mexico. Albuquerque and Santa Fe are close enough together to make an easy day trip. If you have two days, then “The Enchanted Circle” should be on your itinerary.

      • That is another thing I think I am going to like about Albuquerque, the fact that it is close to Santa Fe. I can get the benefit of being in Santa FE and the type of artsy culture it has, without having to pay the high rents that they charge there! I will look up the “enchanted circle!” Thanks!

    • Thanks, Kim!! I just got some good news too that some of my credits from my early days at SUNY Albany have filled a few of the pre-requisites so that saves me a lot of money!! Also gives me time to apply for scholarships and work my butt off, saving for when I have to go to school full time!
