Happy December!

Since November is over, I basically had this conversation with myself today. But even though my pledge to write a post a day in November is officially over, it felt wrong to just not write anything. Although I might not do a post a day now (because let’s face it, I think no post is […]

Lost In Translation

Language is a beautiful thing. I love the way words work and have often found myself stopping to appreciate the way certain sentences are written. Language is also a hard thing. Especially when it comes to speaking a language that isn’t your native tongue. In my lifetime, language barriers have caused instances of misunderstanding, miscommunication, […]

IKEA-d You Not

I should really stop putting off writing until 11 at night. Because then I am tired and I don’t feel funny. Let me rephrase that. I don’t feel like I can write funny (I may or may not actually feel funny). But my last two posts were super lame so I feel like I owe […]

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times

The year was 1998. The location South Berwick, Maine. Our little family was going to do something a bit different that year. Instead of making Thanksgiving Dinner, we were going to support the local chapter of VFW and eat with them. Thanksgiving morning, we all piled into our minivan and drove to the VFW. We […]

All The Funny Parts

In case you haven’t figured it out by psychologically analyzing my writing style or word choices or stories I’ve told, I am the youngest child. In many many ways, this is the best thing that has happened to me and I love it. So much so that I legitimately used to have nightmares when I […]

Burn The White Flag

Because I lived in Washington when I was sixteen, I have been driving in the rain about as long as I have been driving. Even though I don’t like driving in the rain, it is something I am relatively comfortable with. Which is good, because I drove in a lot of rain this summer on […]

Say Something, I’m Giving Up On You

There are people I know who have maps in their brain. They can go to a place once and forever know how to get there. You can give them verbal directions to a place and they will be able to find it. I am not that person. It took me three years to figure out […]

My Real Talent

I somehow convinced two of my friends to participate in a talent show with me this evening. We lip-synced to “Matchmaker” from Fiddler on the Roof. While we got some laughs, the most important thing is that we enjoyed doing it and we thought we were funny. Later, when someone who wasn’t able to attend […]

I Dig

Despite Sundays being labeled a “day of rest,” sometimes they are kind of exhausting for me. I am typically in Church Meetings from 10 AM to around 5. And it isn’t that I don’t love serving and socializing, it can just be a lot when it is for that many hours. Especially because, spoilers, I […]
