Television has always been a bit taboo in my family. My grandmother was one of those old fashioned ladies that was convinced that if you watch too much T.V. your eyes will become square. Growing up, both my parents worked full time, for at least a period of my childhood. Continue reading
So today has been a terrible day, despite being Friday. But, with the help of Enrique and Hendri, Junel was able to put this together to cheer us all up.
This may be the end of my social, well, social anything…but it is worth a good laugh. Sigh.
After a long break from regular writing, today has inspired me to keep to my word and make the next personality profile for my other sister Kendall. Unfortunately, she has committed digital suicide and with no Facebook account, I can’t get any photos of her. Silly girl. Continue reading
Following the bombings in Boston on Monday, Westboro Baptist church tweeted that they would picket the funerals of those who died as a result of the bombings.
