College Humor

By | Feb 6, 2011

I’ve never been into www.CollegeHumor.com, though I’m not 100% sure why. Mostly because I always thought it was kind of cluttered, and I didn’t like the logo. But when a professor sent my class a diagram from the site, I was surprised at how funny I found it.  I saw a few links posted that…

Zumba

By | Feb 4, 2011

I have no rhythm. If you knew me, this wouldn’t be surprising. If you have ever read one of my stories, you probably aren’t surprised, either. I don’t dance. While rarely an icebreaker question, “What is a skill that every human has but you lack?” is the one I always prepare for, because I can…

This is Probably a Freud Theory or Something, But I Didn’t Get the Memo

By | Feb 2, 2011

“Hey, I’m not trying to be a creep, but I don’t have gas money,” a man driving some make and model of a truck said. It was a Pick Up, one I imagine men drive in the summer sans shirts. “I am not a bum. I have a nice truck and cigarettes, I just need…

TV Wasteland

By | Jan 31, 2011

I haven’t been blogging lately because my computer crashed. It wasn’t as bad as I thought, though, because it made me much more productive. I spent countless hours being “that kid” in the computer lab: I was at a computer, yet half the time I wasn’t using it. But it is more awkward to sit…

I Hope This Isn’t Foreshadowing

By | Jan 25, 2011

I wanted to start my semester off on the right foot. I went to bed early, woke up early, and had everything prepared for the first day. While getting dressed this morning, I even looked past my normal sweatpants and sweatshirt, deciding to wear jeans and a nice shirt. I am a second semester sophomore, I though, I should…

Pets

By | Jan 9, 2011

If you add together all the meat, dairy, eggs, ext. that I haven’t eaten in the past however long, I think I have still killed more animals than saved. I haven’t always been a murderer, I promise. And while this might go against my Miranda Rights, I will share my side of the story, for…

Our Future Generations

By | Jan 9, 2011

IPads! IPads! An eight, six, and rumor has it their four year old brother, have iPads! Not only do they have them, but they also know how to use them, moving their fingers like their dad is Mike Jobs or someone. I was picking up a boy I babysit and his two friends from school…

The Must-Have Bike

By | Dec 31, 2010

It’s crazy how common people communicate through technology when they are in the same vicinity as each other. My dad will call me to bring him ice cream; My roommate with instant message me when my headphones are on; I will send my sister a text when she is in the bathroom; ext. My mom…

A Shout Out to The Big Man Up There

By | Dec 31, 2010

I take children and Santa Clause very seriously. I feel that if a TV show is going to imply that there might be some hint of fiction in anything related to the whole situation, there should be a warning before hand. What if someone sees it who shouldn’t? Call me crazy, but Christmas is childhood,…

Fraud

By | Dec 23, 2010

“You could call the number attached to the purchase,” the bank-accountant suggested. “Well that would be horribly awkward,” I said. What are you supposed to say when the person who stole your identity answers the phone? My sister went through a series of scenarios, such as calling and when they ask whom I am, respond…

Office Space

By | Dec 23, 2010

It’s a little creepy being in the back corner of my house, sitting with the cat’s litter-box and my dad’s old little-league trophy.  What’s stranger, though, is sitting at my desk from high school, listening to the old boom box I won while fundraising for my senior class prom. I needed a desk space to…

Ornaments

By | Dec 22, 2010

Every Christmas we get ornaments to symbolize what we have accomplished during the year. Well, by every Christmas I mean we did this until I was 16, and then stopped because we had an extreme number of ornaments. It’s fun to go through them though, and see how I have progressed. I have approximately 10…
