Just a Moment…

This week, landscapers came to do some yard work at our house. So, being the occasionally nice human being that I am, I figured I would park my car in the street so they could pull into the driveway, which would hopefully make it easier for them to get their work done. The issue is,... Continue Reading →

Hall of Fame pt. 2

Much like my post last Monday, where I detailed my return to Pokemon Alpha Sapphire after a five year hiatus, I picked up Pokemon Moon this past week, determined to conquer it. I got to the Team Skull base in Po Town last time around, but never actually finished the game. This time, when I... Continue Reading →

Duality

There is a butterfly bush in my backyard. It's not uncommon to spot little winged friends taking a sip of nectar, or catching a break from the hot sun. The other day, I was looking out the window and spotted two butterflies in the air by the butterfly bush. Both were of decent size, but... Continue Reading →

Beauty Standards

On this beautiful summer day, I present to you a haiku about what goes through my head every so often when doing my "grooming" routine... Ode to Eyebrows Uneven eyebrows, Are a total plucking pain. Beauty standards suck.

Lottery

When I was about seven or eight, I was obsessed with the musical CATS. Like, properly obsessed - I used to watch it every day after school, knew all the words to the songs (even though I didn't know what half of them meant), and dreamed that I could be one of the characters onstage...

Fly

Another addition for Olde Poetry Monday, this one circa 2009. Please enjoy.   I don't get why people tell me, "never change." If I stayed the same, my biggest dream would still be to sprout wings and fly away. It's cute when you're five, but I don't think they have a major for that in... Continue Reading →

Me Too

I know that many people look at the world today and see it as a volatile place. I'm more or less the definition of a standard-issue, Starbucks-loving, nonreligious, straight white girl, so obviously, my life hasn't been riddled with the kinds of difficulties faced by those who are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation,...

Fling the Shoe

The mind of a child is an incredible thing. When we were very young, my childhood best friend and I invented a game. We would swing on her swing set, go as high as we could, and fling our shoes off of our feet and send them flying across the yard, and see who could... Continue Reading →

Remember This

When I was in my 11th grade AP U.S. History class, my teacher told us there was one date we needed to remember. May 17th, 1954 - Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka Kansas. The landmark decision that declared racially segregated schools as unconstitutional, and sparked several crucial events in the civil rights... Continue Reading →
