Long time, no post. It's been a busy few months. For one, I lost a job, then I got two jobs-- a part-time at-home job and a night shift job. The 6pm to 2:30am shift! So I haven't had much time to do any blogging-- or really any cooking at all. Instead of blogging, I… Continue reading I’m trying a brand new food thing!
It seems like all I have time for these days is work and sleep, but I heard about SheLoves synchroblog in celebration of Heritage Day in South Africa. The original post is beautiful-- you should check it out. I was inspired to join in and submit my own 2 cents worth. Nothing really to write… Continue reading I am from…(synchroblog for SheLoves)
It will come as absolutely no surprise to anyone to find that I am a feminist. And I’m Christian. Yes, really. Even with all that patriarchal business mixed in. The cultural patriarchy of the Bible is, I think, a challenging to work with in modern Christianity, specifically, for many in this day and age it’s… Continue reading Let’s submit to each other. 1-2-3… Go!
I was watching cartoons, because I’m a well-adjusted adult and I can watch whatever I want—and I found this great little show that I just fell in love with and had to tell everyone I know. So I put it on the internet. My Ode to Pucca: How I love thee, let me count the… Continue reading An Ode to Pucca (and those like her)
And now for something completely different! About a month ago, I saw J.J. Abrams's newest addition to the Star Trek pantheon, Star Trek Into Darkness. And I have feelings about it. And I haven’t had time to write a word for ages (new job! Yay!) so all those feelings had to wait until I got… Continue reading The Trouble with Alternate Universes
Mother's Day. It seems I should do a post for Mother's Day, but I'm somewhat stuck on where to begin. I haven't actually been home to celebrate Mother's Day with my mother for several years, and I won't be there this year, either. I suppose this post is an attempt to make up for the… Continue reading A Late Mother’s Day Reflection
Maybe I like to toe the line or play with fire, but I like to watch "The Biggest Loser" with my roommate. I guess part of the appeal is being glad that we're not that big and that we don't have to spend 8 hours being yelled at by Bob, Dolvett and Jillian. Schadenfreude is… Continue reading Watching the Biggest Loser as a recovered anorexic
I don't know if you keep up with this kind of thing, but National Eating Disorder Awareness week is February 24-March 2 this year. I've never had a personal blog during this particular week, so I've never really written in detail about my experiences. Maybe I still won't be able to write in any significant… Continue reading NEDAwareness week
While writing about the 50 Shades of Mess, I've many times confronted the question, "What do I think about S&M?" As in how do I feel, personally? Do I like it? Love it? Hate it? Do I make judgements about it or the people who participate in it? I think with the publication and subsequent… Continue reading S & M Thoughts
Can I just tell you? I kind of hate teaching sometimes. Don't get me wrong, most of the time, it's perfectly fine. I could spend a good many years teaching and not be entirely miserable, but sometimes, I want to hop a plane to Paris and never come back. I suspect most teachers feel this… Continue reading Ranting and Gingerbread
