PS. Happy Birthday Mom

It's raining and my shoes are soaked.

Mental note, do not wear canvas shoes in the rain!


We are Family

This weekend I "met" a cousin of mine. I say "met" because I haven't seen her since I was in 2nd grade. I am really excited to finally get to be around a family member on my Father's side, I really hope that we can manage to stay in touch.

I have been super down for the past few weeks. I have a feeling that it's because my time with Nora has been lacking and I miss her. I also haven't seen BIFF or many of my other friends in a few weeks. I hope that soon things will get back to "normal" at least with my love.

School is starting to get busy. Portfolio may kill me. May 22nd is the day that will live on in my heart for a very long time.

Now on to the word of the day!

fractious \FRAK-shuhs\ , adjective;
1. Tending to cause trouble; unruly.
2. Irritable; snappish; cranky.

For the past few weeks I have been fractious.

Lazy Days

Today I had a very very lazy day. I had plans, lots of plans for today but I didn't move, I did however call unemployment to find out if there was a problem with my check and that took about two hours out of my day. What did I do with the rest of the day you may wonder? (or not) but i'm going to tell you, I took a nap, I watched a lot of bad TV which included 17 again and A Very Brady Sequel (feel free to chuckle away).

Now on to the word of the day!

parlous • \PAR-lus\ • adjective: full of danger or risk : hazardous

"Given the fragile state of the economy, this is a parlous time to be making uncertain investments," said the financial advisor.

Welcome Back

I need to start writing better.

I am going to attempt to use this blog to learn how to not write the way that it sounds in my head.

I have been looking into four year colleges and if I major the way I would like I am going to have to write ALOT. I really do not want to be embarrassed I want my papers to flow and sound like a 31 year old wrote them rather than a 12 year old who is just learning punctuation.

I also would like to learn a new word every day that I can use in a sentence and I will post it here.

Todays word will be........

vivify \VIV-uh-fy\ , transitive verb;
1. To endue with life; to make alive; to animate.
2. To make more lively or intense.

Can the writer isolate and vivify all in experience that most deeply engages our intellects and our hearts?

Until tomorrow if I remember :)
