A Brief Lesson on Canadian Culture

At this point, you all know that I'm a nut-case and speak sarcasm like a second language. You may also know that my sister Anna is an epic person who belongs in Lord of the Rings, and my mother identifies with a Mop. But something you may not know about me is that once upon… Continue reading A Brief Lesson on Canadian Culture

Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 3

You thought I was done, didn't you? HA. Nope. I'm going to drivel on a bit more. See, on our way home from Greenville, we found the COOLEST little town in North Carolina. We stopped to eat, and take a walk through this park thing which turned out to be a college campus. (Oops.) There… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 3

Which, technically, was… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1

I don't know if I can say this. Okay, never mind. It doesn't matter. You don't need to know. Sometimes Anna's… Continue reading How I Proved to the Entire Art Class that I am a Dunce

A Poem of Despair

I'm back. And to be perfectly honest, I don't really know how to write a second blog post. I mean, the first one's great; you introduce yourself and spout some random junk about “goals” and such, and then leave in a cloud of sparkles. You can't do that with a second post. So, instead of… Continue reading A Poem of Despair
