Feminist Film Camp

A few weeks ago I sat down with my college counselor for about the fourth time and something weird happened. She looked me in the eye, and without hesitation or a shadow of doubt, said that she had a good idea about what she wanted me to do in college. As in major and minor.… Continue reading Feminist Film Camp

At 8:15 this morning it was still dark in my first-period  Chemistry class and there lay a bunch of sleepy sophomores drooling on their desks while visions of summertime danced in their heads.

The Stupid Cup Song.

the cup song pitch perfect the cup game stupid hammer sydneyjoto

"The Cup Song" came from "The Cup Game". Let's make that crystal clear right now. "The Cup GAME" is basically a hand tap-dance or like a self-patty-cake done in sync with a table-full of others sitting in a circle passing along the cup. It's been around since summer camps and family reunions were invented and if still… Continue reading The Stupid Cup Song.

Firstly, I still have gaps… Continue reading Scared to Pack and Some Pretty Sweet Stuff

Good Luck Charlie Family The Incredibles Incredible Family

The Incredibles was our first DVD. (10-year anniversary is coming up btw!)

High School’s a Fourth Over!

Wow. I'm blogging at 11:30 PM! Yup, pretty sure it's summer! Well school went out with no shebang, simply finals and teachers wishing off "happy summer"s. First year of finals, over. I dust off my hands, throw my backpack to the side and and run through the sprinklers. Funny how once summer starts, the average… Continue reading High School’s a Fourth Over!

Nutella: the Leading Cause of Epiphanies

At the moment, I'm munching pretzels loaded with Nutella at the family iMac. Around me scurry thirteen 5-year-olds, squealing as they transition from playtime to story-time. Tough life guys. And yes, this is how I spend my overdue spring breaks... letting my mom's bite-sized pupils dance circles around me. As I'm licking the product of… Continue reading Nutella: the Leading Cause of Epiphanies
