When your husband is “the other team”

By in another witty life lesson., life.

Is it necessary for married couples to always be on the same team? Nope. Not in my opinion. When Colin and I are going to enjoy a family-friendly game of Settlers or Bluff (which is the rated-G equivalent to the card game BS… as in “I think you’re bluffing”) I much prefer us to be […]

My big fat politically-polar marriage

By in another witty life lesson., life.

Political conversations don’t take well in every house. A recap of my night… Democrat of the household: I saw your tweet today. So are you giving up your Republican dream to own a gun shop? I was kind of proud of you. But tweeting that I was proud of you seemed a little demeaning […]

This Land Is Your Land: Citizenship- a Political Strategy

By in community., economy., something new.

The Beauty and the Blogger- new spokespersons for marriage rights?

By in community., culture., philosophy and theology.

Im not really into the beauty pageant thing. I laugh at the “toddlers in tiaras” shows on tv and the mothers who spend thousands of dollars on their 2 year old beauty queens. “Miss Congeniality” was cute and funny, but not so worth watching over and over. I tend to think beauty pageant girls look […]

The Faces of the Enemy

By in another witty life lesson., culture., life., philosophy and theology., school.

This week was the first week of a new quarter and new classes. This quarter I am focusing on classes to fulfill my minor requirements for non-profit management and human rights as a nice break from urban studies before summer quarter begins. In a last minute addition to my spring schedule, I decided after much […]
