Sometimes as I sit down to write, I’m met with the dreaded writer’s block. I stare at the vast, white screen before me with only the never-ending blink of the cursor awaiting my words. It’s that cursor, sitting… waiting, that makes it even harder for something to come to me. Today is one of those […]

Citrus Churros ~ #FirstOnTheFirst

June 1, 2012

During most of my high school years, I was awkward. Really awkward  I had gigantic, round glasses that made me look some sort of bug with large eyes. I was a complete dork. I wasn’t fashionable although in my own head, I thought my “patterned vests” look was pretty sweet. I had my small group […]
