Living Every Teenage Girl’s Nightmare

I think almost every woman at some point (but most likely during their teenage years) experienced the same fear: that one day, she would turn into her mother.  If they don’t, they’re either a freak an angel from God, or just deluding themselves.  I, ladies and gentlemen, am living that teenage nightmare. I think it’s … Continue reading »

It’s Not Always 50/50

Growing up in a doubly-divorced household, you get plenty of opportunities to view what to do right (and wrong) in a relationship.  I think one of the best pearls of wisdom I acquired was that in a relationship, it’s not always 50/50. While you don’t always want a gross imbalance (as this tends to lead … Continue reading »

Apparently, "Boring" is the way to go in Love

Last night I read an interesting (albeit, somewhat long) article from 2000 about how the first two years of someone’s marriage predicts whether or not their marriage will last.  For those who don’t want to read it, I’ll summarize it for you.  It basically describes how nearly all married relationships break down into one of … Continue reading »

I’ve always been fascinated by dreams.  I just think it is so neat, the way your brain tries to work through things while you’re sleeping.  However, when my brain and subconscious are working through a lot, I start having some really vivid dreams.

Ya Gotta Have Faith

I’ve been toying with this blog for a couple of days.  Not only have I had an interesting (few) week(s), but Lent has started, which always stimulates my thought processes. I was going over my previous posts, and I came to realize that although my faith is a pretty big part of my life, it … Continue reading »

Old Baggage

I find it amusing how the little things in life can alter how you feel about something. My husband and I were on the way to the bank yesterday when we got to chatting about my student loan debt.  We have a couple of options regarding how to pay it off, but most of it … Continue reading »

Never Been in Love

Last night while I was at work, one of my co-workers made a comment about how he couldn’t understand the positive feeling chocolate gives (due to the endorphins) because he had never been in love, so he has never experienced that sensation.

There’s something to be said about the curiosity a journalist holds.  We want to know about why events take place, who is involved, and the implications these events hold.  Some become journalists because they are nosy, and want to know everything.  Others become a journalist because they want to change the world.

New Year, New Situation

Today was the first day back at school for the kiddies.  Although I wasn’t there with them (if only I called back the random number that phoned me last night!), I did get to sub in Extended Day today–and I’ll be there tomorrow, and Wednesday.
