Middle School. Do those words make you want to run away screaming? Probably. I am a middle school teacher. When I tell people that, they have one of two reactions: 1. "Ugh, you're a saint!" or 2. "Ugh, why?!" (Some days, I ask myself the same question. At this point in the year, I ask … Continue reading I’m Sorry, No…
We are back for some more lurrvee story-telling. If you have no idea what I'm talking about you can see Part 1 HERE and Part Deux HERE. Even though only four people voted on the last post (two of whom are related to me...), I've decided to write about option 4: When we went to … Continue reading The Timeline of Lurrvee: Part III
Steve kept texting me, too. Katy thinks he might actually like me, perhaps more than just shenanigans, and I think she might be right. “Oh most definitely you are [a nerd], but it’s attractive.” “I’m always hanging on your every word.” He’s sweet... When we last discussed the Timeline of Lurrvee, I told you the … Continue reading The Timeline of Lurrvee: Part Deux
I'm a chatty person; you've probably figured that out by now. So is my friend Katelyn. And, we're both a little weird. Last weekend, I fed her a jello shot using a very tiny spoon.

This is what I looked like when I was thirteen. I was a big dork. And, let's face it, I'm still a big dork. I had this weird emotional, I don't want to say relationship, but maybe, attachment to, or reliance on my older self. For example, I was the last of my friends to get … Continue reading To be opened April 16, 2007
I've mentioned a few times that I am a fan of yoga--I have, right? Or did I just mention it in my About section? Whatever, I am. Last Friday I did yoga at the Sears Tower with my mom and my friend Mary. Believe it or not, I was not always the yogi master I … Continue reading We are Yogi Masters
In college, I lived in an apartment with four others girls; we called ourselves/ the apartment "The Lawful Brothel." Clearly, we were a fun group. I don't know if you've ever lived in a house with five girls, but the brothel is the source of some of my best college memories. We loved sitting around … Continue reading The Lawful Brothel: Creating Sad Boys Since 2008
I am not a sporty person. I don't really like watching sports. Anyone who knows me, knows this fact to be true. But I do like hanging out with people, eating snacks, and drinking for sports. However, in my day I did play softball-- in which I received the Sportsmanship Award. I was/ still am very … Continue reading Hooray sports! Do the thing! Win the points!
There is a quote about sisters that I love; it says, “A sister is a little piece of childhood that can never be lost.” These words ring truer and truer as I get older and older. My sister is a little piece of my childhood; she is my best friend, and she knows me better … Continue reading Sister, Sister
