Go Do Something Fun!

I sat in a comfortable cushioned seat as the professor scribbled away on the large chalkboard in the auditorium that my organic chemistry class was in. One board would get filled up and then using a pully system, that board would be raised and another lowered. I had never seen such a large chalkboard wall […]

In Public Speaking class we are working on “special occasion speeches.” Students are writing their eulogies as if they lived to ninety and are reflecting on their lives. When their time is up, hopefully at a ripe old age, what will they want the most important people in their lives to say about them? Who […]

Crazy Bird Lady

My husband Darren tells me that I am like a weird cat lady, but with birds instead of cats.  One of my favorite things to do is lay in a hammock in the backyard and read.  One day last year as I was laying under our big oak tree, I noticed a red cardinal flying […]

As I look back over the years, I have many “regrets”.  However, maybe they are better phrased as opportunities to grow. I am so thankful that the Lord is my Father! The peace that Christians carry with them along […]

What I Learned From Life in a “Row Home”

A good portion of my childhood was spent living in and around “row homes” in Northeast  Philadelphia. A defining characteristic of a “row home” is the fact that your home is literally in a row with others and you share a wall with the homes on either side. There are no front yards, just a […]

How I Ended up as an English Major: Finding My Passion and a Job I Loved

I remember the days during my junior and senior years of high school in Mrs. Oncu’s class, discussing novels and scrambling to finish timed writings. I frequently thought to myself, “When will I ever use this?” I always had a knack for math and writing, which is an unusual combination for most people. History and […]
