TWITL – week twelve – so it’s spring now

For the longest time, spring was my favorite season. It means baseball, sunshine, cool breezes, and life blooming. Super rugby has already started and summer is on the horizon with its concert season and lazy days. I loved spring and scoffed at the other seasons. Now? I still love spring but I’ve come to appreciate…

TWITL – week eleven – end of the quarter

The third quarter of the school year ended on Friday, marking the beginning of Spring Break. MOST GLORIOUS! I am making some long weekends to break up the two weeks. It’ll be awesome! a year ago, in the wee hours A year ago was Tyler’s last show at the G Bar. Now he has his…

TWITL – week ten – daylight savings time

We changed the time today and oh how glad I am that I took a nap yesterday. As much as I love spring, I dread “spring forward” because my head cannot let go of the notion that I’m “losing” that hour. I like having that hour! Can we just agree on one thing and go…

TWITL – week nine – rain and sunshine

Ahh, the weather this week. The most constant was the cold, which I didn’t mind at all. Sometimes the sun shone, sometimes the rain fell. I liked when the rain fell because afterwards the air would feel fresh and alive. So beautiful. The Farmers Market opened up this weekend so we spent our Saturday downtown…

TWITL – week seven – fangirl highs & lows

TWITL – week five – writer’s pause

I think I’ve officially hit that “pause” in my writing. None of my stories are really calling to me and I suppose I’m meant to step back and just think of other things… My busy time of work started this week. It hasn’t been too bad so far. I am trying to remember to practice…

TWITL – week four – fangirl love shift

Inevitably, the tide of my fangirl love changes. Time and more knowledge of the object of affection works to erode the heat of that rush of discovery. Sometimes the adoration turns into something steady and sweet, soft and comforting. Sometimes the adoration crumbles into a memory, usually pleasant and easy. In rare moments, the adoration…

TWITL – week three – music makes the world go ’round

MUSIC Devin Dawson – DARK HORSE – I had pre-ordered this album and it finally dropped on Friday. It is so good. I find myself liking this song but then no, that song. Truthfully, I think I have some kind of love for all the songs. I am really digging “Symptoms,” “Secondhand Hurt,” “Placebo,” and…

TWITL – week two – long weekend

School started up this week after winter break and now we’re having a long weekend! It’s really pretty awesome working for a school district, I must say. Let’s do a bullet rundown of random stuff! (I know, exciting!) I met Aaron Miles, former MLB second baseman. He’s from the area and we saw him at…
