Why stop at Narcane?

Upon reading the uproar about Lepage vetoing the bill allowing Narcane to be sold over the counter, I started thinking about the situation. I have to say that the following quote makes a lot of sense: “Creating a situation where an addict has a heroin needle in one hand and a shot of naloxone in […]

What parenting really is

When you have a child, you become a new person. Not only is a child born, but a parent is born. Each decision a woman makes during her 9 months of pregnancy could have an astronomical effect on her unborn child, and from there it does not stop. Every little thing we do has an […]

Arts Integration: The new (old) way to teach

Being a teacher is hard. It’s a profession that has become so convoluted by reform, change, policy, rules, procedures, curriculum, assessment, data, acronyms, workshops, paperwork, etc., etc. etc. You know how hard it is, because I’ve told you countless times and have lamented endlessly about the plight of a modern day teacher.

I’m sorry that there are people who choose to steal lives away from innocent victims. I’m sorry that your peaceful demeanor gets confused with those who are using your category of existence as […]

Why must we lie?

As time goes on, and I become more and more of an adult, I realize something: People must lie. It pains me to say that and you are all thinking, I don’t lie! But when you really think about it, you lie pretty often throughout the course of the day: Scenario 1- The Grocery Store […]

Hypothyroidism (the fat & lazy disease)

When you have a thyroid condition, explaining how you feel is impossible. People just look at you like you have 15 heads. You can list your symptoms and their responses prove their lack of understanding:   Me: I’m exhausted. People: You should get more sleep. Me: I slept 10 hours last night. People: Oh, maybe […]
