Cave Dwelling

I heard yesterday (Saturday) was going to be really hot, so I thought it would be cool (pun intended) to hide inside the earth for a bit. Near Mt. St. Helens, Washington, there’s this part of the park called Ape Caves, which is a former lava tube. (Used under creative commons, thanks iwona_kellie! As we…

No.

It’s so hard to say “no.” I’m a social creature by nature, contrary to as much as I bemoan them, I really do love the company of others. I like being in the thick of things and one of the hardest things for me to say when asked about attending events is: “No.” But, I…

Teachers Matter

Subtext: the right teachers matter. We all know I’m currently in college. I’ve had the experience of good teachers and very BAD teachers. There are all types of teachers and usually the good ones leave and do something different/better and the bad ones get tenure? No, I’m kidding, that’s purely in jest. I’ve had my…

To The Moon, Alice.

*blows off the dust* I haven’t blogged in 2012 over here. Wow. (I’ve been focused on posting a daily quote and daily photo over at schnik.it I could say that I have been extremely busy, and It would be true, but I looked back and I have written 14 other posts about being busy in…

Top 11 Posts of 2011

Well, we’re almost to 2012 and recently I posted my top 11 photos of ’11, so I thought I would dig around in my stats and share with you the items that a plurality of you decided to visit over the year. They’re ranked by number of views. 11: (Dis)Engaging Google+ – I’ve written that…

School Update/Winter Break

Wow. The fall term just BLEW RIGHT BY. Actually, I am kind of thankful for that. I had a really hard time getting into the rhythm of school this term and I’m really glad for the winter break. No more school until January 9th! I am, however, somewhat proud of my grades. Economics: A Human…

Be Thankful; I Am.

I could write something super sentimental but I thought there’s a much better way to tell you what I’ve been thankful this year. Since I like to take pictures of just about everything, I thought I’d show you. Some Sports Firsts: I’ve been fortunate to attend two major sports events this year. My hometown teams,…

Books I want to read…

I was reading through my RSS reader and found this: 100 Notable Books of 2011 Having perused their list, I now have a reading list for 2012, and thanks to my public library (www.multcolib.org) I have them on order. Now I just have to wait to get them. And then read them during one of…

Charting Course

Or conversely, changing direction? Recently I posted a plea for advice as I was in a place where I had to make a decision, whether to subject myself to more schooling or to take my marbles and run. I choose to subject myself to more torture; however, this means that I have to change majors…

Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…
