February 6th

At some point it was Thanksgiving and Christmas, and then it was the New Year, 2019, and then the longest month of my entire life, January, and now thankfully, it is February. My students are taking a grammar quiz in which they have to analyze and diagram sentences containing compounds. It'll probably take them a… Continue reading February 6th

November 10th

I'm grateful for a lot today - perhaps because I'm also frustrated by a lot, and I'm subconsciously forcing that out of my system. Typically I'd be ready to sit down and rant, but I can't do that right now, because I'm too happy. Not ecstatic happy or over the top happy or even outwardly… Continue reading November 10th

November 8th

How could I write on November 8th and fail to mention the fact that I need to go vote today? I feel dirty even just thinking about it - we have no good options! Would we rather an inexperienced man with no political background and a hot-headed propensity for getting himself in awkward positions be… Continue reading November 8th

November 3rd

Friendships are such fickle things. So fragile. Even the good ones. I have been making new friends lately, and it feels great, most of the time. Sometimes it is less so. It is incredible how good the company of a friend can make you feel. That feeling when you can't even sit still because of the… Continue reading November 3rd

November 1st

Will this once again be the beginning of NaBloPoMo for me? I've been posting so little lately, I have extreme doubts about my ability to come up with something worthwhile for 30 consecutive days. While I sit here and mull it over let me just throw a couple of facts out there. The worst day… Continue reading November 1st

Stir Crazy: a way of life

It would probably be fair to start considering "stir crazy" to be my resting state. I'm not saying it's comfortable, but it's pretty damn familiar. I am restless and full of anticipation, even when there's nothing on the horizon. It isn't the anxious sort of stir crazy, not yet at least, not this time. This… Continue reading Stir Crazy: a way of life

A Travel Update

Since I am on the road I thought maybe an update is in order. I left New Hampshire and drove through Canada to Michigan to drop my little sisters at their mom's house. Then I set off again and spent last night at my best friend's apartment in DC. I was going to set off… Continue reading A Travel Update

Becoming a Bigger Picture Person

I can see cleaaaaarly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way! Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration. But I have to rejoice when I encounter some new perspective. It's one of those situations when people can tell you the same thing over and over, and you think you're taking their… Continue reading Becoming a Bigger Picture Person

Rocks, Roadtrips, and the Realm in Between

You could say I'm addicted to road trips and you wouldn't be wrong. I think I must truly be a nomad at heart, and I've never been more okay with embracing a label than that. I think the technical definition of nomad is: a member of a people having no permanent abode, and who travel from… Continue reading Rocks, Roadtrips, and the Realm in Between
