Quick Questions: Prohibition

There are two sides to every story, or so the saying goes. The exception that proves the rule, however, is prohibition. No one ever says what the positives of prohibition were. We hear about the crime and infringement on freedoms without a counterbalance. That’s extraordinary. Even when discussing fascists, people take the time to mention […]

A New Chapter

It’s been a big September for me. My tutoring job is back on campus for the first time since March of 2020. I got a new job as a permanent building substitute teacher in a middle school. And I started taking classes to get my teaching certification. It’s going to be a busy nine months. […]

Some Thoughts About Protesting

I recently started working for Planned Parenthood of Southern New England as a writer. Due to the pandemic and the nature of my work, I’ve been working from home for most of the last three weeks. I did go into the office once though, to get my laptop and meet with my new coworkers in […]

Damn, Things Cost More Money!

The first time I became aware of inflation was when the price of a Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie jumped from 25 cents to fifty cents. I loved the pies when I was a kid, and I especially bought alot of them when I was visiting Georgia and lived right down the street from a […]

I was listening to a podcast yesterday which was discussing the current state of American politics and democracy (I think it’s worth listening to, and can be found here). Historian Heather Cox Richardson, among others, has compared our current state to the United States in the 1850’s, just before the Civil War. Ms. Richardson also […]

Sorry, I’ve Made a Mistake

This is a woe-is-me post, so take that into consideration before reading. I’ll completely understand if you choose not to. I made a mistake the other day. It’s the third time I’ve made this mistake, and it got me especially down and discouraged this time. Now I’m feeling the need to vent a little bit. […]

Are Critics and Audiences Watching Different Movies?

My friends and I were looking for a movie to watch last night, and we settled on a rewatch of last year’s Sonic the Hedgehog. I really enjoyed it the first time- so much so that I’d been looking for an excuse to watch it again. My attention did wander a little, and I found […]

Learning How to Drive

I’m going to take my first driving lesson with a friend today. I’ve made a lot of excuses about why I’m 35 years old and don’t have a driver’s license, but the truth is that I’m afraid of driving. I was in several car accidents when I was a kid, and my mother almost died […]

Our Niche

From the beginning of our blogging journey, one question that has plagued us is, “What’s your niche?” For those not terribly familiar with the world of blogging, it is divided up into niches. There’s tons of lifestyle blogs, dating blogs, sports blog, parenting blogs, and a shocking number of blogging blogs. It goes on and […]
