Caught One

May 31, 2007

So my recent obsession with blogs has taken me on quite the adventure. I have found some really interesting posts, some amazing blogs, and some horrible ones. I feel like I have been digging in a sandbox, hoping to find some gem that someone has [Keep Reading]

What Happened to Respect?

May 30, 2007

As a child I was always taught to be respectful to my elders. My parents made sure that I spoke with respect to any adult. When I was in school I called my teachers “Sir.” I always said “please” and “thank you” and it never felt like I [Keep Reading]

Newest Obsession

May 29, 2007

I sat down at the computer fully intent on writing something tonight. I ended up blog-surfing again instead. I wonder if it is because I am finding part three of my novel hard to write. Maybe it is a way for me to avoid writing. I don’t know. All [Keep Reading]

Writing…Break…Writing…Movie…Writing

May 28, 2007

So the ever elusive Part 3 of my novel came together a bit today. I am now up to page 199. I don’t know why this portion of the book has been so difficult to write. Part 1 and 2 seemed to come to me with very little effort. The story is nearly [Keep Reading]

Stelth Bomber

I Failed Today

May 24, 2007

I promised myself that I would not yell in the classroom today. It was a promise that I was not able to keep. It feels like I failed today. In a few weeks I will need to start writing report cards. I have been getting quite frustrated lately with my [Keep Reading]

Blog Surfing

May 23, 2007

I have been writing this blog for a few months now and I enjoy it profusely. I love writing entries and posting them up for people to see. I yearn to have readers like I did when I wrote for the university newspaper during my undergrad. Truth be [Keep Reading]

River of Distraction

May 22, 2007

Part 3 of my novel has been the hardest part for me to write. I worked on it last night for a few hours and got up to page 187. I’m still house-sitting. I’ve been working on their laptop computer. They also have the Internet here so I have [Keep Reading]

Positive Hip Hop Promotion

May 21, 2007

I don’t think enough people are promoting hip hop in a positive nature. It is easy to focus on the negatives but there is a lot more that hip hop has to offer. Last week, I wrote about a reality show that taught about hip hop culture in a [Keep Reading]
