Musings on an English Degree

Year: 2014

I made this wonderful holiday card for you to send people. I made this for you.

A Few Things and Wishing You a Happy Holidays

Just a few things I want to touch on before the holidays are upon us.  I’ve been terrible at posting the past few months. I went strong for the majority of the year, then I just crashed and I’m not entirely sure why. I plan on improving on this in the new year. The Winter […]

Google Autocomplete hating on moms everywhere

Google Autocomplete Hates Moms

Technology is great, but I’m starting to wonder if it really knows what it’s doing. It’s starting to worry me, the kind of things that are popping up. Google autocomplete on my phone is being much more violent and aggressive towards mothers than it should be. Are a lot of people actually in need of […]

Me and my niece on my 27th birthday

27 Things About Turning 27

I turned 27 a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to write-up a list of 27 things that went through my head recently about turning 27. I had to get a new driver’s license because the one I got at 18 expired. It’s something you think is always a few years out until you get […]

Marley After the Vet

Marley After the Vet

Marley is all fixed up now. She recovered rather nicely and I’m making sizable dents in the amount I owe for the procedure. Fun fact, I was quote anywhere from $450-$950 for her procedure depending on how many teeth were pulled and other work that might need to be done. I feared the worst. The […]

Cat Dental Procedure for Marley

Marley is currently under the knife!  After I had taken Marley in to get checked up after she pooped some blood, the vet was harassing me for not getting her mouth fixed up sooner. I told her that it was too expensive for me to pay all at once (they don’t offer payment plans). She […]

Apple Bins with pre-picked apples

Pick Apples from the Bin

I was going to write something different this week, but circumstances changed. Earlier this year, I perfected my applesauce recipe that’s the right amount of sweetness and spice and consistency. It tastes like candy, without being over sweet. It tastes like Fall, but also Spring, Summer, and Winter. It’s the right amount of everything and […]

Love Shack Photos

I thought about it this morning, I should have posted some photos of the Love Shack. These photos are from earlier this summer, before we took the wall out and put up a new one. The Love Shack is where the magic happened back in the day. If I grew up in the 70s in […]

Weekend building is done for the year

Helped my dad this weekend for what is probably the last time this year. Outside at least. There will probably be smaller projects here and there but no more big ones are planned, like building the new deck. This weekend, we tore off one side of the garage because the boards were rotting out. After […]

Social Media Pokémon Exchange

This might be the best exchange I’ve had on social media to date. Sometimes, my mom is just hip to the references. Or rather she’s quick to jump on the Pokémon references.   For what it’s worth, I’ve been on a Pokémon playing binge lately. A friend of mine and I are training teams so […]

On the Lake Geneva boat tour

Back from MIA

My Apologies I get it, I know that I went MIA for a while. To be honest, I kept wanting to come back and write and update about the things going on. For some reason though, I never was able to bring myself to do it (this post even took a week from when I first […]
