We've quickly come to the end of November. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday it was Halloween, but then suddenly things like Thanksgiving came and went... that's hardly fair. October and November are my favorite months of the year and now both are gone. December is next. December tends to drag on… Continue reading November 30th
They didn't finish and they have some interesting handwriting but...
There are only five more days of school before we have NINE days away from school, away from kids, away from reality. So what's going on this week? I've decided that on Friday we're having a quiz in quite literally every subject. That means no classroom instruction, and that's the point. Before a vacation is… Continue reading November 13th
I'm on Skype with my sister but she went to the bathroom. The smoke alarm in my apartment just went off because my roommate Christopher is trying to cook himself some hot dogs. We turned the air conditioner off this morning and have all the windows and doors open letting the not-quite-cool-but-at-least-not-hot-breeze in. I think… Continue reading November 5th
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
Okay, I'm just going to go on a little rant here about how it's the 28th of November and Christmas music has already been playing publicly for over a week!

This month being November, and home to US Thanksgiving, I've been trying to put more thought to the things I'm grateful for. There are, of course, more than I can count. How do you encapsulate so many good things, especially the ones you take for granted and rarely remember to truly appreciate? In college I'd… Continue reading Taken For Granted
I've been reading Post Secret weekly for probably about 7 years now. I heard about it in high school and was instantly intrigued. The concept of sending your secrets to a person who posts them anonymously or publishes them in a book has a certain allure to it. I guess it's a unique way to… Continue reading Post Secret
Today is November 1st. Aka, the start of Movember, the most beautiful month of all the year. Movember is better than Christmas. Why? you ask. Let's see. Movember, or No Shave November, is when all the handsome men get handsomer. The irresistible whiplash inspiring hunky lumberjack types come out to play. Physically speaking, if I had… Continue reading Ah, Movember!
I'm thinking about trying out this NaBloPoMo thingamabob. Can I write a post a day for all of November? More than anything, I don't want my posts to ever be meaningless. I want to write about what truly matters to me, or what's going on that I really find funny or meaningful. Do I have… Continue reading NaBloPoMo?
