Cannibalism is Okay Today...

TMJH Park City Post
NO. I'm NOT talking about eating people. I'm talking about interviewing your fellow journalists for quotes to supplement your articles. Normally, we would not allow cannibalism (we being me and my fellow Editors in Chief down at the TMJH Park City Post (the online magazine I edit for)), but today is make-or-break day. What the journalists can write in the next hour determines if they pass or fail this class for this quarter. I'm hoping that I can have mercy on their souls.

Little Miss Bossy...

So, if you've read my about page, you would know that my parents are divorced. Basically, this has left me with two families, each with their own distinct flavor. Each person their own piece of this perfectly lopsided puzzle. The most important pieces are my siblings. Today, I'm going to write about them, and about how I associate with them.

Why My Legs Are Currently Dead...

The most important pieces of glorified cardboard...
For the First Time by The Script on GroovesharkCue the mood music (aka. the song that has been stuck in my head for the past few days)
Starting in April this last year, I went running. At first, it was nothing, just a casual workout every Tuesday and Thursday with one of my best friends, Skylar. We would do a few laps around the track, then 10-20 minutes on the treadmill, but mostly we were going to the gym for the steam room in the ladies lockers. After that, I joined a Running With Ed team for my English teacher, Ms. Hooker. Before I knew it, I had run two legs of a 40 mile relay, the first being six miles long, the second being seven. At the time, it was the most I had ever run, and I felt totally crazy for doing it with almost no practice.

101 Awesome Songs, Golden Oldies, With a Twist...

Cover art from: Eminem's "The Eminem Show", Aerosmith's "Dream On"
Here comes the posting train, with songs two and two and a half in the 101 Awesome Songs Posting Saga. I thought I should smash these two songs into the same post because the second song is just a sort of "amped up" version of the first. To quit beating around the bush, let the musical musings begin!

A Cold(play) Day...

When I woke up this morning, I was actually quite optimistic. I was all, “Good Morning Everyone! Today’s the day! The sun is shining, the tank is clean, and we are getting out of here... GASP!”
