Stress, Perception, and Reality

November 28, 2008

I have been under a lot of stress this year. I thought I knew how to write good report cards. I’ve done it enough times over the years. The problem is that each principal has his or her own ideas of what they want to see on these things. I had [Keep Reading]

Inspiration From Television

November 27, 2008

I really enjoyed watching Battlestar Galactica Season 2.0 on DVD this week. The shows is really well done. It is brilliantly writing and acted, and has a lot of suspense and action. (If you haven’t seen this show yet, there are spoilers [Keep Reading]

TV on DVD

November 26, 2008

I am lucky enough to live a few blocks away from a branch of the public library. It certainly came in handy last week during the huge snowstorm. School was cancelled and I wasn’t going to drive anywhere. I felt like I needed the break and I [Keep Reading]

What’s It Mean?

November 25, 2008

I’ve picked up a few stock phrases that my dad always used to use when I was a kid. I’ve done the same thing with my some of my grandpa’s phrases. I never thought twice about what some of those phrases meant. They just sounded cool [Keep Reading]

Computer Attacks!

November 21, 2008

Bush Babees

Feel Good Interpretation

November 18, 2008

I am trying to write a blog entry while Jeopardy is on the television behind me. I am only half paying attention to the Teen Tournament because my time is awfully short these days. I would like to be watching the show and giving it my undivided [Keep Reading]

NaRepCarWritMo

November 17, 2008

I wish I had the time to work on a novel right now. I would love to be part of the National Novel Writing Month. I have been working on something probably just as huge as a novel though. I’ve been putting a lot of work into these things too. [Keep Reading]
