Good Ideas For Thanksgiving: Part Two
Every year in the school where I work, all the students and faculty crowd into our small cafeteria and everyone has an opportunity to say what they are thankful for. It might sound hokey or clichéd, but at a school where every individual student has struggled with a multitude of unique challenges, there is aContinue reading “Good Ideas For Thanksgiving: Part Two”
Good Ideas for Thanksgiving : Part One
This is my first Thanksgiving. Well, not really. I am 24. But this is my first Thanksgiving MEAL preparation, which has left me feeling something like this zebra: I have made dozens of pies before and I am a prolific stress-baker, so that part is not too bad. . . but a TURKEY??? Somebody handContinue reading “Good Ideas for Thanksgiving : Part One”
Party like a BOSS(ton Terrier)
Growing up, my family was never much for birthday parties. Celebrations tended to require extensive house-cleaning, rendering parties less attractive by the relative unpleasantness of the preparation. Now, I am not a rebel. Ask anyone. I’m a traditional, rule-following kind of girl. I am not one of those kids who left home and did everythingContinue reading “Party like a BOSS(ton Terrier)”

Breaking Dawn: Party Like A Cullen
Mock me. Judge me. It won’t change a thing. About three things I am absolutely positive. First, perhaps the Twilight Saga Series should not be taken too seriously as they are about teenagers and Vampires. Second, there is a part of me, and I don’t know how dominate that part might be, that is capableContinue reading “Breaking Dawn: Party Like A Cullen”
It’s My Funeral.
Being dead is not usually a favored topic for blogs. OR anywhere else, for that matter. In fact, there are very few times death pops up in daily conversation, which seems like an awfully surprising thing, since EVERYONE DIES. It’s one of those topics that just doesn’t come up much. I guess this blogpost isContinue reading “It’s My Funeral.”
I Will Not Forget
The Gettysburg Address “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, canContinue reading “I Will Not Forget”
