S is for


Things that make me smile:

  • Someone smiles at me
  • Someone sends me flowers
  • Family
  • My kitty sleeping on me and purring the whole time
  • Something really stupid was said or done
  • It's part of my job
  • Coldstone ice cream
  • My smile was expensive...so I use it
  • Old couples who are still in love
  • Success
  • Butterflies
  • Margaritas at Mariachi Loco
  • Seeing momma deer and baby deer together

R is for

Response and active participation...which is something that didn't happen on the last blog post.


R is also for Reading.  I hate reading, actually.  Once upon a time I read some great book by Nicholas Sparks.  This book was so great that I can't even remember the title.  I also made a book purchase at the DFW airport because I arrived much earlier than anyone should ever arrive at an airport before their flight.  It was overpriced and was a true story about a sugar mama.  Good story but I didn't finish it because the guy sitting next to me on the plane was sweating and shaking due to turbulence.  Such a distraction.

In my spare time I enjoy a nice black and white textbook to stimulate my brain.

*more crickets*

Luckily for me, enthralling textbooks will haunt my every spare moment for the next nine months.  Yay for lots of debt and a printed piece of paper with my name on it.

What are YOU reading?

Questions.  Feel free to ask me questions in the comment section.

Keep it clean.  :)

P is for

Poem.  Awww...poetry.  A window to the soul.  Such a beautiful art that can be appreciated by almost anyone.

Poetry sucks.  Why, you may ask.  I feel that anyone capable of punching keys on a keyboard or writing with a pen, pencil, marker, or stick of charcoal is capable of writing what they consider to be a poem.  Much like anyone who can take a picture and edit it with Picnik.com is a photographer.  And anyone who can ramble about nothing with the aid of the internet is a blogger.  Wait, what? Yeah I said it.

I take pictures and edit them because it gives me something to do.  I post them with a disclaimer that I'm not trying to be anything other than a bored person with a camera.  I have written poems, but have not posted them anywhere with the intent of being an acclaimed "poet".  I blog about pointless things for a reason similar to taking pictures:  I'm a bored person with a computer and internet access.

That being said, here's a little haiku that I wrote:

New students scare me
They all look terribly scared
I'm glad I'm not new

There's new student registration going on today, so I figured I would state the obvious in the form of a haiku.
