I do not *heart* this movie...
      Back in 2004, when Sex and the City was in its heyday and anything said to be like or inspired by it flew off the shelves, a book called He's Just Not That Into You hit stores and became an instant smash.  (Not so coincidentally one of the book's authors, Greg Behrendt, was a consultant on...

It is Day One of a new world.  A more hopeful world.  A more giving world.  There have already been glimmers of it earlier in the week.  People took Obama's challenge to serve....seriously.  All over the country people were seeking out ways to volunteer on Monday....helping in their communities, or...

Stars Hollow...
I was in a place that felt like a Northeast college town, but in my head I knew I was in California.  I was walking down a quaint, brick paved street with a girl who was my roommate.  Blond, thin, pretty.  I was walking Scarlett.  Much of it was just me walking Scarlett - keeping her away from...

In years past, I've done "Year In Review" entries on my blog.  For a stroll down memory lane, feel free to visit 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004.  I'd thought about doing something similar for this year, but it seems unnecessary to be quite so elaborate about it.  One thing I will say about...

Our generation's response to Obama
Amaze me, America Save me from Armageddon High road to Heaven...             - "Amaze Me" by Girlyman               President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama.  It has a lovely, regal ring.  Every syllable of that phrase contains a hope and a promise that my generation never dared to expect. ...

The world was going around me...I don't know how to explain it... Feeling? Great. I feel great because I feel like I'm in control. A bit weird but like I'm in control...I felt at one time if I pushed it too much I would suffer the consequence but a push and a shove it was me against without my...

It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.  This cliche implies that loving means getting, having.  What of those that give, but don't get love to lose in the first place? I've had nothing to lose my entire life.  I've loved, and loved hard.  I've loved people not in spite...

back to school apple.jpg
A few days ago, some friends and I were discussing my new job in terms of the sweet, vinyl-y smell of new school supplies. Remember the feeling of back to school? Regardless of how you felt about school for the rest of the year, that first day was always full of excitement and hope. The...
