My professor handed back our first papers last night; I got an A. Hooray! Honestly, though, I worked fairly hard on the paper and would have been disappointed and a little surprised to see anything less. The prof also wrote some nice comments on it. Not everyone was so satisfied with the response to the… Continue reading
So I didn’t blog last week’s episode of Transamerican Love Story because I got distracted, and because I’m not always as motivated as I might like. But to catch you up: Calpernia had the guys host a dinner party for her and some friends; they were responsible for everything from set up to food prep… Continue reading TLS Recap: Episode 3 (with a nod to Ep 2)
I'm headed back to class tonight.Last week I didn't blog about class at all because I was too discouraged. So many of the women in my class are completely missing the point, underestimating the importance of feminism and a fight for women's rights in this world. One girl even went so far as to clearly… Continue reading
I've been working on a series of poems for awhile now that are loosely based around Bible stories.

Since Wednesday of last week:Jacob came down with strep throat and had to take several days off school.I ended up in the ER at 1:30 Saturday morning with severe back pain. Diagnosis: Kidney Stone. Resolution: Really good drugs, a prescription… Continue reading bad karma backup: resolved
Well, I've been home with a sick child for the past two days, and I'm just resurfacing now in the real world. Poor Jacob has strep throat and was running a high fever (103!), so we spent two days on the couch, watching cartoons, eating ice pops, and generally being miserable. He's feeling better today,… Continue reading catching up

Ok, first let me just say: how cool is it that she commented on my last blog entry about this?!Right, now on to a quick review and recap of the show:The format of the first episode of… Continue reading Calpurnia is a genus, or Calpernia is a genius. You decide.
When I was in high school, I watched the same movies over and over again: The Basketball Diaries, Reservoir Dogs, Clerks. Sure, there were others, but these were my old standards, the movies I returned to again and again because I thought they were special in some way that other movies weren't. I thought they… Continue reading
