Hindsight, Foresight, and a whole lot of 2018 Glitter

Every year, we always go through this routine of sappiness and sentimentalism, and every year, it's just as weird. I'm feeling slightly speechless as I type out the number 2018. Guys. It's 2018. I might actually slip a tear. 2017 has been a whirlwind, let me tell you, and I honestly don't remember most of… Continue reading Hindsight, Foresight, and a whole lot of 2018 Glitter

Broken Bones, Murdered Fish, and Mom’s Stellar Painting Suggestions

Lately, I've been feeling the insatiable urge to paint a masterpiece. Which is great, if you know what to do it of. Which I didn't. As usual. So I did what any self-respecting teenager would do---I turned to my mother for help. WHY, I don't know, since she never suggests anything decent (AKA anything I… Continue reading Broken Bones, Murdered Fish, and Mom’s Stellar Painting Suggestions

Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Apparently, today is Thanksgiving. (Otherwise known as "National Day of Food".) I would first like to state that I'm rather annoyed my posting schedule has to coincide with a holiday. It's very inconsiderate of the holiday. I had something lovely all written out, AHEAD OF TIME, just waiting to be posted. But then I realized… Continue reading Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

Another Baran Vacation, Part 2— Featuring Hazardous Puzzles, 17th Century Swords, and Bird Poop

Hellooo! As you can see, my wit has returned, and I can once again write a decent post. Hallelujah for that. In the meantime, I hope you've been anxiously awaiting Part 2 of our vacation. If you haven't,  you can get out now, because I don't need your negativity on my blog. If you haven't… Continue reading Another Baran Vacation, Part 2— Featuring Hazardous Puzzles, 17th Century Swords, and Bird Poop

Another Baran Vacation, Part 1— Featuring Photogenic Pigeons and a Hurricane

Well hello, all you lovelies. You may (or may not, depending on how devoted you are) have noticed that I didn't do a post last Thursday. The reason (yes, there is a reason) behind this is... I was lazy. I was going to say "Bet ya didn't see that one coming!" until I realized that… Continue reading Another Baran Vacation, Part 1— Featuring Photogenic Pigeons and a Hurricane

Survival Trivia With My Father

One night last week, we lost power during a storm. ... Nope, Anna would classify that as a boring start. I'll try again. During a single period between sunset and sunrise, those of my kindred blood and I lost all electric capabilities during a vociferation of nature. Yeah. I think I'm just gonna go with,… Continue reading Survival Trivia With My Father

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

Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1

I'm not slacking off on posting, really. (Though that wouldn't be beneath me.) See, last week, my family was traveling down to South Carolina to see a play of Prince Caspian (more on that later), and between that and having the brain cells of a flea, I wasn't able to write anything. Which, technically, was… Continue reading Wild Road Trips and Prince Caspian Productions—Part 1

Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters

I had plans for this blog post. For the first time in my life, I wrote it a week before I was supposed to publish it. I would wait for Thursday and post it like any respectable blogger. Right? Wrong. My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
