It sounds so old school, baby boomer era--the whole taking home economics class. It was probably seen as an easy A course--a mandatory class no one really wanted to take; but here's the issue: 2017, and the common American teenager is raised with the mother cooking or the maid cooking, the maid or mom making… Continue reading Why High Schools Need to Integrate Home Economics as Part of the Curriculum Again
So as you've seen in my first post about my studio apartment and what it looked like, you will find a big, tall mirror with white framing. I've moved apartments three weeks ago, by the way! House warming party soon! Anyway, I love that mirror. I got it on sale and when I put it… Continue reading Through the Broken Glass
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty beat up in this picture. From the start of the blog, I mentioned it was and is a lifestyle blog--meaning everything is genuine, hoping to share thoughts with others and laugh a little more.

**From the Archives: 2010** I opened my eyes, took a deep breathe, felt peaceful, and watched seagulls loud, screeching, flying about, and as I am a little bit disoriented, I could not decide for the life of me if the half-destroyed, ancient fort to my left was operating or people just liked to go inside for… Continue reading Captain Morgan’s Wife
I said this blog was a lifestyle blog from the beginning, which is more than just a page to write opinions or stories, for posting cute recipes (which I will never do because my cooking experiences are epically disastrous), & more than just posting cute outfits, hoping for a million instagram likes. There are more not-so-glamourous… Continue reading Myspace: top 2 friends on my profile
