Thumbs

We all have flaws. I am a flawed being, and, though I consider myself relatively good at admitting to and aspiring to mend my flaws, there are some I cannot change because they are a part of me. I am, of course, talking about my thumbs. I am the unfortunate bearer of what some may... Continue Reading →

In Between

Millennials get a lot of crap, these days. But I think  folks forget that the age range of millennials covers a lot of ground. A quick google search told me that millennials include everyone born between 1982 and 2004. That's people currently aged 14 to age 36. So criticism of millennials comes across as skewed,...

Bizarre School Memories

1.) Bag milk. Until second or third grade, my elementary school served individual milk bags during lunch. Which was fine, unless you stabbed them the wrong way. Then they exploded. We definitely had cartons by third grade, though, because I remember spilling one all over myself. I've heard that bagged milk is common in other... Continue Reading →

Get To Know Me

I know, I know - we all detested those ice-breaking "get to know you" games teachers forced us to play at the start of every school year.

Once again, my dear friends and readers... it is holiday time. Ho, ho, ho, jingle bells, silent night, yada yada yada. As you may or may not know, I am currently employed full-time in the wonderful, if occasionally soul-crushing world of retail. Also, I recently received a promotion, so this is my first holiday with... Continue Reading →

The Sky is Blue

After being discouraged from taking an art class while in high school, I decided to use one of my electives in college to take a Drawing course. I had always enjoyed art, so it seemed like a good choice to expand my skills and learn new techniques. Long story short, I hated it. But I... Continue Reading →

My Reading Routine

This one was suggested to me, and I thought it would be a cool thing to share! So, I've mentioned in a previous post that during college I sort of fell off the reading wagon due to the extensive amount of academic-based reading that was required for my major. Reading became a chore for me,... Continue Reading →
