Old Glory

Last Tuesday I took my lunch, scrolled through my phone – Facebook, emails, and Instagram. I’ll admit I didn’t wake up that day excited because it was an important day. I hadn’t spent weeks preparing and I wasn’t planning a party to celebrate. To be completely honest I’m ashamed of not being aware of what day…

The Responsible Generation

I often hesitate to write about my thoughts on the kids of today. The most obvious reason is that I haven’t yet produced any kids of today – ha! Usually someone without hands-on experience shouldn’t open their big yapper. Today however, I’ll overstep my boundary but if it’s any consolation I’m not really sure I…

Teenager Shmeenager

Growing up has its perks and it certainly has its downfalls. As a soon to be 26-year-old the dim light of adulthood is growing nearer every day. I find myself enjoying strange things that my 18-year-old self would make fun of me for. My days consist of events I never dreamed of and to top…

A Word

It should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of words – if I wasn’t, you certainly wouldn’t be reading mine. I like descriptive words, ones that really tell you how someone feels. For that reason you’ll never have to apologize for letting any of those swear words slip in front of me. I like those words…

Dear Dog Sitter,

Last weekend we took a much needed trip to the cities to visit a friend. It was long overdue and as always it’s a treat to get out of the country. I’d say, get out of town, but we live in Vergas so that wouldn’t make much sense. Anyway, when you have a dog it’s…

People Noticer

I think we can all agree that I’m a people watcher. I’m not a creepy, stare bear kind of people watcher but a people noticer. My past columns and blogs prove that whether it’s the grocery store, a mechanic shop or a simple walk down the street – I have a tendency of picking up on things. My assumptions of these people…

It Can Wait For The Rest Of Your Life

Within the last week I’ve heard several horror stories about young adults. I shouldn’t use the word “adult” because in my opinion, they’d still be teenagers had they not hurled themselves into adulthood. That’s what I want to talk about today, transitioning from a teenager into adulthood – based on my experience. When I see teenagers cutting their…

A Serious Case Of The Grumpies

You may have noticed I’ve skipped the last few weeks. I’ve struggled to find something to write about. Usually things just kind of happen that spark an interest and the rest just comes naturally. Since I haven’t been noticing everything happening around me, I have noticed something else – I’m grumpy.   Maybe its the weather,…
