After several less-than-subtle hints from my encouraging friends and family I am – at last!- going to write a new post! I’m constantly formulating entertaining and important things to share on here, but then I get nervous and can’t do it. I think the last semester killed any sort of joy from writing for me, but maybe if you all are a very kind audience it will become fun again. Deal?

Well, today I have two negative experiences to share and one positive experience. The first negative experience was too horrific to share and involved my eye doctor, so we will move to the second.  (more…)

 

I love quizzes January 11, 2008

I know, I know, really lame to post quiz results for my second-ever post. However, I did think this was a particularly fun and enlightening quiz, so hurry up and take it already and let’s compare results. I’m pleased (though not surprised) that I match up with Augustine and not Jonathan Edwards. Where do you fall theologically? (And check back for a public service announcement later this morning!)

Good evening, world! January 3, 2008

What ho, world! Here I am, back to try my hand at blogging. I assume that, to begin with, most of my readers will probably be related to me, but if I do happen to acquire a wider readership the “About Me” section should hopefully fill in the necessary details.  So – here’s how we’ll play: 

  • 1. I’m anonymous. I decided to go this route firstly to be prudent and secondly to enable me to whine (when necessary) about my students, my classes, my jobs, my weird former life, my hatred for bad literature, etc. So, if you happen to be a friend or relative, do be a dear and try not give away my name, address or social security number or anything like that. 
  • 2. I’ve decided not to concern myself too much about the technical mechanics of writing. Commas, shmommas.
  •  3.  Let’s blog about a bunch of issues related to daily life. Specifically, I’d like to center posts around the theme of “seasons” of life – what season are you in? How are you dealing with/relishing it? What could we learn from each other? This explains the “Seasons” part of my user name. 
  • 4. The “Strawberry” part was suggested to me by my dear friend Audrey Mango owing to my love of all things strawberry-flavored. Tehehe!

Sound good? So, let’s have fun.  How are you today?
