Flashback to the Early 2000s

Hello, blog world! It’s been a while. In fact, I’ve almost let the entire month of August pass without attending to my blog. But it’s all good because my sister Molly has me covered. She created a blog titled “The Pretty and the Plain” this past month, and here is her second blog post. Go check it out! 😀

Not only is today “Flashback Friday,” it is also the last Friday of summer vacation. That’s right. Next week I will be re-entering the world of late nights, early(ish) mornings, papers, exams, coffee runs, and moments of near insanity. As I prepare for this coming semester, both physically and mentally, I can’t help but think of the good ‘ole days in elementary school. Back then, the most I had to worry about was learning my letters and making sure not to pee my pants in front of my class. Or, bursting into tears because I unexpectedly spotted my kindergarten crush in the school library. (Yes, that happened). Anyways, back to the point, and away from embarrassing stories about my childhood: Here is a list of some of the things I miss most from my pre-college days. Let the flashback begin!

Yes, yes, I know. This isn’t the…

Debra Fileta’s “5 Things to Do While You Wait on God”

Over the past month, my blogging life has pretty much died--not completely, just mostly. I'm sure anyone keeping up with my blog has wondered if I've dropped off the face of the earth. And I have, partially. With the end of the spring semester, I'm not all here. I think the writing part of my… Continue reading Debra Fileta’s “5 Things to Do While You Wait on God”


One Year Anniversary!

Exactly one year ago, I started this blog! This month is also the anniversary of getting my job at the public library where I work and of getting officially accepted into graduate school.

The Satisfaction of Completed Crafts

I have noticed a trend in my blogging habits lately: the quantity of posts has plummeted since the start of the  new year. Last fall, I was doing pretty great--a blog a week and pretty proud of myself. But then during Christmas, I tasted the sweet freedom of no homework and ever since then I've… Continue reading The Satisfaction of Completed Crafts

Jane Austen, Part 4: Movie Suggestions

Today while checking my Facebook page, I unexpectedly received a message from my sister which read, and I quote: "You need to do a new bloggedy blog, you blogger you!" I was extremely flattered by this message, realizing that one of my family members, at least, keeps up with my blog. But I also realized… Continue reading Jane Austen, Part 4: Movie Suggestions


Reading, Re-Reading, and a bit of Narnia

I can hardly believe it's been over two weeks since my last blog post, and that I haven't even logged into my WordPress account during those two weeks. It's sad, really. I blame it on school and the horrible paper which is due tonight but which I turned in yesterday (praise the Lord!). I've thought… Continue reading Reading, Re-Reading, and a bit of Narnia
