FreeImages.com/Dora Pete I was never a fan of the throwback, party anthem "Who Let The Dogs Out?", but these days I find myself asking that very same question.

I recently met this blogger on Twitter, and he invited me to check out his blog. He has some nice articles. As a current student myself, I can really appreciate this article, The Luxury of Studying. I, too, am guilty of feeling the dread of studying, especially the longer I am in school. I have to dig deep to keep myself motivated sometimes.

Freeimages.com/P Beck Time management is no joke! I swear ever since I started back going to school full-time, I feel like I'm always a day late & a dollar short. There's never enough days in the week or hours in the day. I work 3-4 days a week, clocking in 20-26 hours, and I'm taking… Continue reading Just One More Hour Please
Happiness is a choice. I have a wooden placard on the bottom of my entertainment center with that exact statement engraved on it. Although life can throw situations at us that cause uncontrollable unhappiness, for the most part, I truly do think happiness lies in our own hands. I've mentioned before that I battle with… Continue reading Happiness (Part 1)
Now, normally I stay away from discussions involving religion or politics, but this story about the Kentucky Clerk was irking my nerves too much to not talk about it. I needed a big ole glass of wine to process this one. I'm sure most of you have heard about this story. I've included a link… Continue reading Religious Freedom or Selfishness???
It's another Monday night of fast food and fatigue. Mondays are a taxing day for me. I'm up at 5am to start work at 6am, and I have class at night on campus.
