12 Days of… Poetry?

As most of you know, we recently moved to a much nicer area. Which means that we no longer have violent assaults and gang activity right outside our front door on a regular basis. Score! Anyways, my mom came down to help us make the transition and brought six boxes of my old high school…

Such is Life

I had such high hopes for this semester. There was so much I was going to accomplish! I was going to blog regularly, start writing a book, excel in all my classes, and make waves at work. Three of those things didn’t happen. I’ll let you guess which three. Now it’s the end of the…

So We Got Married

On Sunday August 18th, I married the love of my life. It was awesome, wonderful, beautiful, stressful, crazy, fast, ect. I don’t think there are words in existence which can adequately express the whirlwind of emotions a wedding brings. All I can really say is that I’m glad we’ve made it through to the other…

My Favorite People

My favorite people are the ones who are immediately behind me in life or immediately ahead of me. I find those behind me to be the most relatable. I love reminiscing on things I just went through myself, and being able to give advice when needed. When I was in high school I loved talking…

Being Dirty

Today there was only one fly in my apartment. He met his fate on my glue board early in the afternoon. I’m extremely happy with this improvement, but the whole situation has got me thinking. There are, more than likely, people who were put off and down right disgusted by my last two posts (which…

Buzzz Kill

I returned home from work early this morning to find the house was still fly free. Feeling accomplished, I went to bed and woke up around noon. I was lounging on my couch and proclaiming my victory over the flies on Facebook when something tickled my elbow. I looked down to see yet another fly….

The Fly Problem

Recently, I’ve come to appreciate the phrase “shoo fly don’t bother me.” It is not only a familiar phrase, but also a depiction of how we treat these household pests. Many of us simply swat them away from ourselves and hope they don’t come back to bug us. Few people actually take the time out…
