When I was a girl I was repeatedly told by my paternal grandparents (I don't think my maternal grandparents were super-political), my parents, and the myriad of conservative churches I attended, that fascism comes from the left. Mind you, this was the 70's and early 80's, long before anyone would have believed the events that … Continue reading Sunday Speculation: Conservatism
Being 30 years behind is overwhelming. This week more than most. I spent 3 days in bed, except when I was taking my kids everywhere they needed to be, and I went to work. Now I have a Calc exam on Tuesday and, well, a lot. So I need a reminder of why I do … Continue reading Reminders
Single Parenting While Sick I cannot recall the last time I was so sick for so long. Tonight is my second night of Tylenol cold medicine. In the meantime, my kids still need to go to school and get picked and then go back and then there's tutoring and then there are my other "kids," … Continue reading SPWS
It's hard to believe that when the Supreme Court handed down the ruling for gay marriage I was one of those opposed. It seems a lifetime ago. However, a year later an audio recording of James Dobson and Franklin Graham came across a feed and my mind began to change. By that point I was … Continue reading National Coming Out Day 2018
I'm sick today. So sick I skipped Chem. I don't think I've been sick enough to miss school since I started back. It's pretty bad. I slept all morning so I could go to work this afternoon. Now I'm pretty dead. Anyway, more important matters are... My final book tally for my birthday (in September). … Continue reading Books and Things
Tonight I discovered why people choose a major in Communications. Yes, we took an entire two weeks, with one week off class, to create homemade games. This is our group's game. It is the lamest because we have two STEM majors and two nursing majors. I hate to stereotype, but we're not super artistic. The … Continue reading Chose Your Major
And I don't see it enough. 😀 I am so tired I nearly forgot to post today and it was such a great day. I got my first Chem exam back and I got a B. I could have done better but I studied too widely, wider than the professor's study guide. Next time I'll … Continue reading Sleep is My Best Friend
Me at 6:30am. Me at 9:00 pm. Some grocery shopping in between. I had planned to write more, but I need to be up at 4am to start it all over again.
...will continue tomorrow. Not so much the last few days. Too much homework right now. I thought I was catching up today, then I got stuck in Calculus. Some days some dark part of me whispers, "English is such an easy major. You'd barely have to break a sweat."
On September 11, 2001, I called my paternal grandmother after my son left for school to discuss the terrible events. Her response (I was the first to tell her) was disturbing. "Why couldn't they have flown those planes into the UN buildings and killed all those people?" I was stunned, but not surprised. My grandmother … Continue reading Tribal Culture
