Starting tomorrow I am excited to be starting NaBloPoMo. In case you don’t know what it is, it is a 30 day blogging challenge, where you commit to writing a post every day for 30 days straight. I have no idea how this will turn out for me, but I am eager to meet that… Read More NaBloPoMo!!!
Last night in class we were discussing what happens for most of us in the very near future: we all graduate, and we need to decide what we want to do with the rest of our lives. That is, if we haven’t figured it out yet. This is how it is for an English major,… Read More To Go or Not To Go
Last week when I was waiting with my fellow classmates for our professor to come start class, we were discussing how we have a lot of homework; almost too much. It started out with us all agreeing that we have a lot of homework, and every time someone chimed in they would add something to… Read More It Doesn’t Matter What I Think

However, I suspect I currently have too… Read More Letting Go

This is the question my coworker and I were talking about yesterday. We were talking about issues that are… Read More 6am Thoughts on Women Leadership
One of my English Professors has challenged all of her students to be able to get to the point where they can write about anything at any given moment. That means that we all have to be able to write without being told what to write about. I feel pretty confident about this. In fact,… Read More I Got Rid of My Worst Vice
In 1995, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I remember this clearly. It was shortly after the birth of my first son. It was a fluke the way she was diagnosed, really. Some unexpected bleeding in the middle of the night led to a trip to the emergency room, where the cancer was discovered.… Read More Pay Attention to “The Girls!”
