Welcome to I’m Busy Being Awesome. I am so glad you’re here!

My name is Paula. I’m a professor by day (and what feels like most nights and weekends) and blogger in my free time. I’m the wife of an incredibly talented musician, Ryan, and the mom of two fur babies, Bruno and Rascal.


Like most of us, I live a busy life with demands coming from all different directions. Perhaps less like “most of us,” I am also the walking definition of a list making, schedule following, make-it-happen, type A personality. While this does have its drawbacks (ahem – hello, control freak!) I’ve learned to embrace the character trait and celebrate the positive – the drive to finish tasks, stay organized, plan ahead, manage time, and generally get stuff done.




I’m Busy Being Awesome is a space to share what I’ve learned with you. It is also a place to try new approaches, see what works, and learn from what doesn’t. Finally, it is a place for me to discover new tricks and tips from YOU. I know you also live a busy life, and I hope you will share with me how you tackle your hurdles.

If you’re wondering where to begin, check out the “Start Here” page. It will walk you through the layout of I’m Busy Being Awesome. Then, sign up for my newsletter. No spam – I promise. It’s just a weekly update on all-things-awesome.


If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions on what you would like to see in an upcoming post, (or tips on how to get my house cleaned faster) drop me a line. I would love to hear from you. Please get in touch!
