Web Miscellany: Compilation #12

We're a little over halfway through 2018, and it's been a rough year. My beloved dog passed away suddenly after four short years, my doctors are increasingly worried about the severity of the valley fever infection, and my head is too foggy to fully process anything.

But I Haven’t Proposed Yet!

My boyfriend is a bit of a smartass. Whether pranks (like the April Fool's Day he convinced his father that Costco was closing and my mother that we were expecting), puns (which his mother refers to as two-thirds of a pun--a "P U") or miscellaneous silliness (like caressing my hair with a creepy "little hand"...

Hobbies, Jobs, Career and Vocation

I have been continuing the What is Creative Living? online course hosted by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and several other books. The second portion of the course involved some videos on the difference between hobbies, jobs, career, and vocation. The second assignment was to sort through my daily activities and distinguish between hobbies,... Continue Reading →
