My Mix Tape

NOTE: I’m putting the songs in order as I think of them, not in order of relevancy to my life, because I’m sure whether in the past or later in life, they will be relevant multiple times. “Can’t Shut Up” Anthem Lights “Stay Beautiful” Taylor Swift”His Favorite Christmas Story” Capitol Lights “Why ya wanna” Jana Kramer “Must Have Done Something Right” Relient…

My Stories in Noun Descriptions

I wrote the following blog post a couple of months ago for my online writing class. Since then, I have worked harder on the first book mentioned and might be looking at self publishing companies soon. Who knows, maybe by this time next year I’ll be posting a link to the book? Fingers crossed! 🙂…

The Blob vs. The Barrel

It was hot that day. Had I wanted eggs for breakfast I could have gone outside and cracked them on the road. I was working at a horse camp, in the middle of Texas, in the middle of summer, in the middle of the day. It was the Blob’s turn (known as Priscilla to her…

The Human Remote

Great Guys

Earlier I wrote a piece about modern girls and Disney princesses, titled ‘Deadly Princesses’. There was one part where I wrote “when they look around them they realize Prince Charming has not come yet so they force him to. Any guy with any sort of charm is the Prince, even if he’s really a Gaston.”…

Mayflower Compact and The Port 5 Compact

The two Compacts are written in chronological order. “In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of…
