FIREd Millennial

Alright— for weeks, months, or maybe even years, you’ve been hearing this term thrown around on news sites, Reddit, and even by some of your older coworkers. What the hell are people talking about when they mention “FIRE”, and how did it get such a goofy name? Simply put, “FIRE” is an acronym used to […]

I used to puzzle a bout a lot of things as a boy, for example: What would it feel like to be a cat? Do fish feels pain? Well, how about insects? Was the Big Bang just an accident? Is there a God? Why do so many innocent people and animals suffer terrible things? Is […]

The Amsterdam, NY Blog

Just about every Sunday, Tony Sumigray would show up at Mass with today’s Amsterdam Birthday Celebrant in tow and sit next to, in front of or behind me and my kids. Back then, little TJ was a study in perpetual motion, crawling, squirming, standing, making crazy faces, doing everything but sitting still and his antics […]

I have been trying to write this blog for weeks. But as it turns out (and I should know this by now) planning for and packing for a 2,000 mile trip across country is a pretty stressful thing. My mind has been elsewhere, and it shows. Did you know that 80% of your immunity is […]

Gender inequality has been an issue dating all the way back to the 1800’s. Women experience many inequalities in everyday life, their workplace, schools, sports and even in parenting. Women all over the world have lived through these inequalities based on their gender. Now in the 21st century women have started fighting back with many […]

A really good friend and mentor recently gave me the advice of taking advantage of opportunities and exploring other areas of the agricultural industry. With all of my work experience being on a farm of some kind, whether it be dairy, meat goat, horses, etc. I should get off the farm one time and get […]

Andre Gutierrez

Many people have commended me about my articles, my poems and the way how I write them. One friend of mine asked me to help him write a poem for his girlfriend, and to be honest with you, I didn’t know what to teach him. I wasn’t being selfish, I just really didn’t know what […]

Recklessly Recovering

trigger warning: sexual assault/rape Today I finally have hope. I was dreaming that I was in his arms and it was beautiful. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. My boyfriend, who I’ve known long distance for ten years now, was finally kissing me for the first time. I fly to […]

Research in Practice

Dylan Kane’s recent post about prerequisite knowledge has me wanting to tell you a story from my very first year in my very first full-time classroom job, which I think I’ve never related on this blog before, although I’ve told it IRL many times. It was the 2001-2002 school year. I taught four sections of […]

The Scriblerus

        574 hours. 574 hours since I last saw my neighbors, my teachers behind their desks, my friends on their bikes. 574 hours since I saw the grocery shop, my school, the town. It  had been a perfectly, wonderfully regular day, sitting with Josie and Rebecca on a bench eating ice cream, then going home […]

Circus Tuna

There’s a beautiful camp situated along the Guadalupe River in Hunt, Texas, that I had the good fortune to attend each summer for five years, from age nine to thirteen. A BIT OF HISTORY FIRST: Camp Waldemar is the result of a visionary trailblazer named Ora Johnson. After teaching grade school in San Antonio she […]

NATION AND STATE

Someone who enjoys wine three to seven days a week doesn’t need a reason to celebrate National Wine Day, but wine is my favorite of all the drinks, and it’s also an opportunity to geek out archaeologically (more on that later). Soon, when I land in Italy, I’ll celebrate seven days straight of International Wine […]

Personally, I took note of it trendy and aesthetic nature like two years back, but since then a lot has changed including the evolution of it into Persian rug London. Vintage Persian rug has gained popularity and the needed aspects to […]
