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, […]

The Soldier’s Heart

August 3, 2011


I can only imagine being a soldier fighting in a war zone – to have my life at risk every day, to watch fellow soldiers die, to constantly hear gunfire and explosions and yelling. I couldn’t handle it. I also can only imagine coming home from that life – to go back to making dinner, […]

No matter how you spin it, it’s still sex for money

Tuition. It’s a scary word for every college student. Loans. And there’s an even scarier word. The cost of going to college has become outrageous. As the economy goes down the drain, tuition everywhere is skyrocketing.

“Somebody has to pay, Lenny. Somebody always pays”

Last night I watched the movie “Memento”. It’s written and directed by the same person who wrote and directed Inception, so if you liked Inception then I highly recommend this movie.

Do you care about the old people??

July 8, 2011


If you’ve turned on the news at all, you’ve seen the drama circus that is going on in government right now over whether or not to make cuts to entitlement programs in order to reduce the deficit. As you can guess, Democrats are vehemently AGAINST making cuts to programs such as Social Security, Medicare, and […]

What Coach Carr left out…

June 28, 2011


Everyone’s got their guilty pleasure show. For some, it’s The Jersey Shore (ain’t Snooki lovable??). 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 […]
