Tuesday I went to my first day of track/pole vaulting practice. I ran more than I have for the past six  months combined. And that night, I was so tired that I passed out at 10:30 p.m. and slept until 6:30 a.m. That's late for me. My muscles are aching, but I don't mind at all because it dawned on m...

I've been thinking a lot about taking risks lately. My editor keeps pushing me outside my teenage Eureka experience.

When I was little, civility was something I knew of and practiced. I was always told to "be polite, and use your manners." "Please" and "thank you" started and ended every request I made.  Sadly, I'm realizing that not everyone was raised that way. Either that or they've forgotten what civility is...

There are only two moods that I possess: Life is wonderful. Life is a waste of time. Those may be dramatic, but hey, I'm being honest. I'm either having a really good day or a really bad day. There's no in between. We all have those days that just don't go our way. I won't do well on a q...

Destroy Rockwood Confessions, please. I know you all are familiar with or have heard of Rockwood Confessions on Twitter. If you haven't, here's an explanation: people from a Rockwood school send in offensive tweets about people from another Rockwood school to an anonymous person who runs the accoun...
