Facebook Survey

It’s no secret that social media has changed the way we interact with one another. Being the sociology/psychology lover I am, I’m very interested in the way it shapes, changes, and influences our personal relationships, and how it affects us emotionally. It’s amazing to think that there are currently kids, yes, actual human beings, who have never experienced…

Jumping In With Both Feet

I’m not one of those people who likes to test the water with my big toe, assess the situation, and make an informed decision about whether or not to jump into the lake. Instead, I prefer to live my life in the form of cannonballing into the lake, unsure of what I may find, but…

Perfect Saturday

Today was a really good day. It was one of those Saturday’s where nothing was going to put me in a bad mood. My dad is in town to help my youngest sister, Katy, move into a new house and both of them stayed at my place last night. I really love having family here,…

Marriage Is

It’s only been a few months, but I’ve learned a few things about marriage here and there. Some are silly, some are sweet, some are downright ridiculous, but I’ve come to learn that all the little things are what make up a marriage. So what is it to me so far? Marriage Is: Not getting…
