Characters In Love Are Always Pleasantly Surprised… Huh?

I’m currently writing a young adult fiction novel which is a pretty good gamble. It’s always hard to get a novel of that kind published because there are so many to compete with. I’m trying to be smart about it though. Paying attention to how best sellers are written, thinking about what publishers are going […]

NMM: Forks Over Knives!

Happy Monday! Today I’m bringing you another documentary that I think is definitely notable.  It’s called Forks Over Knives and is all about our current diet and what studies have shown.  It tells the story of various people who eat what’s called a “whole-food plant-based diet”.  Some of these people were diagnosed with cancer years ago […]

Foodie Friday: Healthy Peach and Cantaloupe Pie

An interesting thing happened last week.  I baked some pies.  I’ve never baked a pie by myself before.  I’ve eaten lots of pie, I’ve been around when pie is being baked, and I’ve helped out a bit, but I’ve never actually myself made a pie.  So I decided to make a pie.  Well, a gluten […]

School Didn’t Prepare Me For This… Or Did It?

You know how school is supposed to prepare you for life? Well, I’ve realized it gives you some very valuable skills, but it also causes some problems. Summer break is great, but it doesn’t really help your mindset. And all of those projects and ever changing classes? Fabulous, right? So what happens when you’ve graduated […]

NMM: It’s A Monday…

This past week has been a bit stressful, so this Notable Media Monday let’s kick it off right with a little comedy.  Olan Rogers is a guy who likes to tell stories and do hilarious dares with his roommate.  When a friend first introduced him to me (via YouTube) we watched several of his videos, […]

NMM: Chemerical

Do you know how toxic our lives are? Okay, increase that ten fold. My mom has been dealing with severe migraines and food allergies for more than five years now, and she’s finally finding the source of the problems, but along the way we’ve learned all kinds of nasty truths about the chemicals and toxins […]

Foodie Friday: Fried-Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

Happy Friday again!  And if you were in the US I hope you had a happy 4th!  Mine was busy, but I did get to see fireworks.  The best part is my 4th of July celebrations aren’t over yet!  Next Friday you’ll get to see the grilled pizzas we’ll be having at my 4th party. […]

Interviewee’s Rebuttal

On Monday I wrote a NMM (Notable Media Monday) and introduced you all to a presentation about recent graduates and their often lack of interviewing skills. If you didn’t see it, you really should. It’s fantastic!   However, I do want to point out that the interviewer is not always perfect. I’ve had plenty of […]
