This week, I made a cake. A cake that takes the cake, if you know what I mean. I found myself in possession of some very disappointing Red Delicious Apples (as all Red Delicious Apples tend to be) that were starting to grow even less appetizing over time. Thus, I went to find my AppleContinue reading “Apple Cakey Goodness”

Je Suis . . . Super Sucrée!!!
Every year for Halloween, I dress up. I think teachers who don’t dress up without a good reason are kind of a drag, to be honest. But I’m also a big nerd who loves to stay creatively on/near the topic of my content-matter as much as possible. SO, typically, I try to pick a costumeContinue reading “Je Suis . . . Super Sucrée!!!”
Zombie Themed Treats!
This past weekend, I had a chance to attend my very first Zombie Prom. While the event itself was quite fun (who doesn’t like dancing and people watching with a bunch of undead characters in downtown Salem, MA?), I think the festivities preceding the dance itself were equally as delightful, so I thought I’d share withContinue reading “Zombie Themed Treats!”
Should I be a Teacher? What Should I do With My Life?
Recently, I got this message posted in my message-box on another type of blog I run. . . This poor person is in the same boat as a LOT of other 18-22 year-olds the world over, and I can empathize with their plight. SO, I am sharing a slightly-varied version of my response to them on this blog, inContinue reading “Should I be a Teacher? What Should I do With My Life?”
Party Hard with Some Classics
A good meme is a thing of beauty. (If you don’t know what a meme is and you happen to use the internet, you should probably go educate yourself. I’ll wait. . . ) I know I have written about memes before, but that is the beauty of the meme . . . and the reasonContinue reading “Party Hard with Some Classics”
Loquaciousness, Verbosity, and Siblings
Recently, somewhat out of the blue but much to my delight, my brother decided to throw down a challenge in my direction. . . This was immediately followed up with a full-family-facebook conversation, complete with loving taunts. So, when faced with all of this chatter, I decided to attempt to meet my brother’s challenge.Continue reading “Loquaciousness, Verbosity, and Siblings”
Reflecting on the Message of Isaac Watts…
When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, Save in the death of Christ my God! All the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them toContinue reading “Reflecting on the Message of Isaac Watts…”
For any of my dear friends who are feeling sad, blue, or generally icky. . . here are some words of wisdom and well-wishing from the mouth of my very own niece, Bizz:
GISHWHES Networking: Crazy Beautiful Extended Family!
I recently posted about my experience with GISHWHES scavenger hunts in both 2013 and 2014, and I know I’ve already talked about the brilliantly fun community of GISHWHES in the past, but I don’t think you all truly understand the ridiculously awesome group of people involved in this annual undertaking. Meeting new people during GISHWHES isn’tContinue reading “GISHWHES Networking: Crazy Beautiful Extended Family!”
GISHWHES 2014: Death To Normalcy
The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen via Spicing up my summer for the second consecutive year (reppin’ the 2013 GISHWHES pride), I survived another charitably insane week of scavenging mayhem this past August. Keeping a little of the zany GISHWHES spirit throughout the year is a life goal, and has beenContinue reading “GISHWHES 2014: Death To Normalcy”
