I'm writing this down so I can better remember it later. By the time my mom and I finished shopping early Friday evening, the sun had set and we had to hustle to our car. The cold was coming in. No more than 10 minutes into our drive, the bright lights of the shopping plaza … Continue reading Chasing the Moon

I wasn't good at reading for comprehension and just skirted by the year we spent on grammar. I always gave it a good try, but I was never going to be a star student.

So now at lunch I've been eating those one-bite Musketeers and Snickers and avoiding the Smarties. I shouldn't be eating any candy. I've written at … Continue reading I Love Candy Forever
http://gph.is/1UOSVLF Lately I've been focused on writing short, satirical comedy pieces and now I'm self-conscious about my ability to write essays. So I'm literally only writing this to prove to myself (and public) I can still write semi-serious, long-form work. You happy? Halloween is next week and for the first time in years, I don't … Continue reading Did You Enjoy Planning Your Wedding?
