25 Days of Memories, Day 16

Summer. Such a beautiful name for a rather heinous girl.  Ironic, really.  Summer was the bane of my existence at daycare.  And yet, she ruled the playground so you had to play nice in order to have a happy recess.  Okay, so truthfully I don’t remember the much about her, but I remembered enough to … Continue reading

When Dreams Come True

Sorry to do this to you again, but I’m taking yet another break from writing 25 days of memories in order to share something exciting! But don’t worry (not that many of you appear too worried about my apparent lack of consistency).  I will finish that series if it’s the last thing I do on … Continue reading

J’adore London

I’ve never been in love with a person.  I know that’s a strange admission to begin a blog post with, but there you have it.  I’m a little strange, so it works.  At any rate, the statement is completely true: I have never been in love with a person.  Sure when I go on long … Continue reading

25 Days of Memories, Day 15

Take One Adjust for skin tones (Well, someone’s got to take a hit here…) I keep promising to tell more stories in another post, but then I never do, or at least, I haven’t yet.  Until now.  Yesterday’s post was about meeting Christina and becoming secretary of the African American Student Association (AASA).  Today’s post … Continue reading

25 Days of Memories, Day 14

One of my roommates often wonders about my memory.  She thinks I remember some pretty random stuff.  It made me start to wonder about it too…and I’ve figured it out.  My family is a story-telling family.  We may not be the most eloquent story-tellers, but we are elaborate, and growing up I heard stories all … Continue reading

Good Friends…It’s the Little Things

I love spending time with friends.  But most of my friends will know that I’m pretty horrible at keeping in touch, period.  Especially over the phone.  It’s not that I don’t value my friends that are far from me, it’s just that I am a super tangible person.  I need to see a person…be in … Continue reading

25 Days of Memories, Day 12

Some stories are hard to tell than others.  It all depends on my mood, really, and how much I’m willing to write.  But everything I’ve read is that writers write, period.  And not because it’s this huge overwhelming passion (though for many, I assume it is), but because they’ve developed the discipline to write.  Discipline … Continue reading

25 Days of Memories, Day 11

Today’s story is a memory from Greenville, South Carolina and it involves a birthday party.  I seem to remember a lot of special occasion stuff from Greenville, which I guess is how the story goes.  When you get older, the tedious memories seem to slip your mind.  That’s my theory, anyway. So Adrienne.  That was … Continue reading
