Conquering the fear

September 11, 2011


I was sitting in Mrs. G’s 6th grade science class on the left side of the room when I found out. She stopped teaching for a moment to tell us that a plane had crashed into a building in New York City. I was shocked by the news. But I was young too. That’s sad, […]

Peace, maaannnn

September 6, 2011


When we think of world peace and working to achieve it, most likely these sorts of images come to mind: Yup, “peace” is just for those pure, hippie-dippie potheads, we think. So many people dismiss it. But we shouldn’t. Even I have fallen into that trap of thinking that peace is simply unattainable. People are […]

For others, it’s The Hills (watching Heidi and Spencer tumble into the depths of insanity from the comfort of my couch was simply wonderful). But for ME, it’s Teen Mom. That’s right, I’ve admitted it. Few things are more enjoyable […]

Time falls away, but these small hours, these small hours still remain

June 19, 2011


Anyone who is Facebook friends with me knows that I love good quotes. I’m constantly posting lyrics and movie quotes and TV quotes as my status. In fact, the title of this post is from a song called Little Wonders by Rob Thomas. I think that words can be extremely powerful, which is partly why […]

Everything you need to know about yourself

June 10, 2011


Who doesn’t like to take quizzes that tells us something about ourselves? You answer some questions and then boom, you find out what kind of personality you have, or if your current love is going to last, or what kind of jeans won’t make your butt look too big. Often times we don’t take them […]
