Every year, I dread New Year's Eve.  It's my least favorite holiday.  I don't like the pressure to have fun (if you're a new reader, I'm not very good at having fun).  I don't like the pressure to improve oneself that comes with a new year.  I don't like the idea that...

Around Christmastime, I really love to watch the movie Meet Me in St. Louis starring Judy Garland.  It's one of my very favorites and I usually watch it multiple times between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Really, it's a movie that could be watched any time.  It chronic...

When I taught AP English Language, it was my job to teach students how to not only craft an elegant and successful argument, but to also understand how others do it, too.  One of my favorite texts to analyze and discuss was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's "Letter from Bir...

So, what the hell, right?  Where have I been?  Since my last post, I've been to Atlanta, West Virginia, and back to Bluffton to wait for a part for my van.  I feel like I'm in a holding pattern and I'm frustrated.  I also feel like a big failure because almost three mo...

Last week, I made my way back to my dad's house.  It had been just under a month since I left there to begin my road trip.  I'd known, even before I left the last time, that I'd be back.  I am having my van fitted with a spare tire holder, I wanted to vote, I am attend...

The first time my parents took me to Walt Disney World, I think I was maybe four years old.  And we went back the following year when I was five.  In all, I think I've been there about eight times over the course of my life.

Going as an adult is very different from...

My travels have officially begun!  After more than a year of planning and researching and fretting and saving and downsizing and analyzing and budgeting and buying, I'm finally on the road.  

I started with a couple of days in St. Augustine.  I'd never been an...

So, as it happens, all that time I spent looking forward to leaving my house behind was nothing compared with how I felt when I actually left my house.  It's just like Joni Mitchell says, "you don't know what you've got til it's gone."  I kind of loved my house.  I was...

My parents raised me in Buckhannon, WV.  It is a really pretty, sweet little town.  As a teenager, I hated it, of course.  I hated how small it was.  I hated how conservative it was.  I hated that I couldn't get away with anything.  It was smart, really, raising my bro...

I'm officially no longer employed.  Basically.  Well, it's sort of complicated because I still have income and I still have health insurance and basically I am getting all the benefits of having a job without having to show up to work anymore so I am a real, true brat....
