Poetry Saturday: Between the Lines

I actually remember the story behind this poem! This is the first poem I ever wrote, and interestingly enough, the first poem I ever had published! It was published in an issue of Teen Ink when I was 16 years old. I, or my parents, still have a copy of that issue somewhere. Now I …

I’ve Written A Lot of Crap

improving your writing

Including this blog post, there are 221 blog posts in this blog that have been written over the course of three years. Granted, there have been plenty of gaps over those four years, but three years is a long time. Two hundred twenty one posts is also a lot of posts. As I went through …

1st Post of the New Year!

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! Last year, I pledged to blog every single day, and that lasted about a month. Ever since then, my blogging has essentially been a series of fits and starts. I do it for a week or two, only to run out of time, ideas, or both. Even with my 50 blog post …

What to Do Tomorrow, and in 2014

Earlier today, my brain was mush. I wanted to write but I didn’t have any ideas. I was stressed about work and money, which just filled me with worry instead of creativity. I wasn’t in the mindset to get things done or to focus on a task. But, I’ve worked my four-hour news shift and …

The Next Few Posts are Pre-Scheduled for My Convenience

scheduling blog posts

I do leave for Las Vegas tomorrow morning, so while I’m out-of-town, I’ve scheduled some posts for the next few days. I don’t want to worry about posting while I’m visiting family and playing poker, so I’ve posted some articles that I’ve written for previous clients a year or two ago. Might as well, right? …

Embracing Being a Night Owl

I do have a 10 a.m. phone interview tomorrow for an incredible marketing position. I’m nervous, partly because I should be in bed now and I haven’t been in bed at this hour for months. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to sleep. I don’t want to be sleep deprived for the interview, since …

Goals, Updates, and What I’m Capable Of

goals for this week

My parents say I shouldn’t be so negative on this blog, referring to my previous post on how I’m so horrible at this new niche (and considering that I haven’t written a single post this week, I’m still very horrible). However, I say that it’s important to be open and to be honest about these …

There Should Be Live Feeds for Every Single Legislative Session

Sen. Wendy Davis

It’s after midnight, so the Texas special session should be over. But, the live feed is still rolling and 160,000+ people watching are wondering what’s going on here. We’re all wondering why people are still moving around, why the tape is still going, and why people aren’t just walking away and going home. The latest …

I Spilled Water on My Laptop

I write this from my fiance’s computer because, as my headline says, I spilled water on my laptop and it’s out of commission for at least a day. Maybe forever, but I’m hoping there’s still something to salvage through all this. I just tried turning it on and the keyboard is still wonky. I hope …

Passing the Time, Waiting for My Beets to Grow

i am bored

I am bored. I haven’t been bored in a long time. I really shouldn’t be bored, as there are plenty of things that I need to do, or that I could do, but I don’t want to do any of them right now. Actually, the one thing that I want to do is play Plants …
