December Third.

For the past several years, I have done what I call ‘December Diaries’, writing one post for every day in December. Last year I did not do so well at this, a task I gave myself, but I always say I am going to try. And here we are, December 2013. Here’s what is going […]

Rules for Life.

This post is brought to you by The Bloggess and Lauren Filing Jointly, because I obviously have thoughts about life and other things. Cassie Jo’s Rules for Life 1. If you did not graduate from college, it’s okay. It took me a long time to learn this, and an even longer to not feel like […]
