learning to live it

Date June 3, 2009

I think I must be the most knowledgeable person in the world for all the things I’ve learned in this life of mine. I’ve learned that chocolate milk chases nightmares away and that time doesn’t heal all hurts it just dulls them some.  I’ve learned that things never happen like you plan them, but the […]

Airports. You’d think I’d be used to them by now.  I’ve rushed through more than I can name and couldn’t possibly add up all the hours I’ve spent waiting on floors or sleeping in uncomfortable chairs.  I walk down concourses with no sense of panic and can take off my shoes and clear security before […]

from coffee country to Rocky Top

Date March 30, 2009

This is my too cute Destination Imagination team. The too cute team that won the Colombian national competition, thus receiving an invitation to the Global Finals in Knoxville, TN. How exciting is that? I’m bringing my Colombian angels to the Dirty South!  Get excited.

Tired is a rabid dog and I’m being mauled.

A new year

Date January 14, 2009

I like new beginnings, fresh starts.  That’s obvious enough seeing as how I pack up the contents of my life and move them all over the planet time and time again.  But there truly is something so empowering about getting to know what once seemed impossible.  Even if what you’re getting to know is yourself.

a keepsake of sorts

Date December 8, 2008

There was a time when I thought a broken heart was the greatest tragedy of all. Now I know it’s not like that really.  It seems a broken heart is just another one of life’s aches.  An ache that is there within, but that goes unnoticed some days.  It’s a sort of hurt that hides […]

listen here, internet.

Traffic jams don’t really bother me.  Neither do long lines in Wal-Mart or the grocery store.  I don’t get stressed when it takes me ages to get my food in a restaurant.  I’m generally pretty patient.  Hello.  I work with nine year olds.  I have to be. Truth be told, I can only think of […]

I wouldn’t trade them for the world. The girls or the dreams.

Date October 29, 2008

I was just a kid when I started college.  I’d never been away from home and I had no idea how the world worked outside of a 50 mile radius of that house on a hill in Nowhere, MS.  But, even so, I was a dreamer.  I guess I always have been I just hadn’t put […]

I need to take a deep, cleansing breath. Because if I don’t some folks might die today and that’s just not becoming of a lady, now is it? A list should suffice as the aforementioned deep, cleansing breath. I cannot expect people to value my time as much as I do. Manizales weather does NOTHING […]

Not the Amazon update you expected

Date October 15, 2008

I know.  I know.  I promised Saturday, but by the end of this post you’ll feel sorry for me.  And if you don’t, just don’t tell me.  I like to believe that the world is sympathetic.  Thanks. Yes, I had a fantastic trip to the Amazon.  It was all that I expected and more.  It […]
