That Time I Ripped My Pants in the Airport

Here’s a little story for Throwback Thursday – a story of love, loss, betrayal, and ripped pants. I went to college in New England, but my home state is Pennsylvania. Specifically, I hail from a region of Pennsylvania known as “Pennsyltuckey.” Because, unfortunately, many folks in the area do not realize/accept PA was a UnionContinue reading “That Time I Ripped My Pants in the Airport”

Regret

During my years at college, I decided to grow my hair out. It doesn’t seem like a monumental decision. However, it was a pretty big decision for me, as I had never permitted my hair to grow past my shoulders, because my hair is more or less a sentient being capable of complex thought; it’s kindContinue reading “Regret”

Of Destiny and Tater Tots

I have always held the believe that life works in mysterious ways. About a month ago, I began to feel a desire growing within me.

I’m not some ticking time-bomb of rage justContinue reading “I’m Not Angry (I Promise)”

I’d thought that I dodged it, because I took an online astronomy class with a “lab” over the summer of my second year, but my university saw through thatContinue reading “Surviving Rock Science”

The Digi-Piggy

I received a package in the mail this week. That package contained a glorious piece of porcine machinery known as the Digi-Piggy. Like most scatter-brained individuals, I am notorious for misplacing things. Just last week, I took a pair of brown shoes from my closet to wear to work. I set them down somewhere, went toContinue reading “The Digi-Piggy”

An Elusive Balance

This morning, I awoke on the floor of my bedroom. ‘This morning’ is technically correct, though I should mention it was actually 3:20 AM. Though not necessarily a common occurrence for me, I do occasionally wake up in this fashion – with the lights still on, an unfinished cup of coffee on the nightstand, myContinue reading “An Elusive Balance”
