Hello everybody! Welcome back to the misadventure that is my life. After my last article I feel like most of you are under the impression I have no friends. I am here to correct that I have friends, they just live about forty-five minutes away in Wayne, Nebraska. So, I have only one local friend, w...

Hello everybody! I am a student here at Northeast Community College but you would never know that. Why you ask? Well, I am mostly an online student. I have one on-campus class at night, and does that even count as a class? I mean half of the people should be paying attention and aren't. The reason...

For the last twenty-plus years, The Saloon Too in Laurel, Nebraska has carried the slogan "feels like home". That's because when you walk in the door, it really does feel like home. It’s actually just like the lyrics from the opening of the 80's show, Cheers– "sometimes you want to go where every...

Do you text while you drive? Do you talk on the phone while you drive?  Do you realize you are putting your own life and the lives of others at risk when you are distracted behind the wheel? Think of all the people that you encounter daily while driving. People, with families and their own stories, driv...

It seems like we spend our lives looking forward to “something”. In elementary, I couldn’t wait to be old enough to babysit. Middle school, I couldn’t wait to be in high school and have a boyfriend. In high school, I couldn’t wait to graduate, move out, and be on my own. However, now I’m...

For the sake of humanity, stop being nice. Instead, be kind. It’s simple. It really is. It seems absurd that I am telling you not to be nice. Our parents, teachers, and other adults told us for years to “be nice, say you're sorry” or “I know Billy is mean, but be nice.” Well, I'm h...

Could you stay away from all media for 24 hours? Yes, all media in all its forms- internet, phone, email, book, you name it, and you cannot have it. What would I do for that 24 hour time period living life unconnected from the world? I have no clue whatsoever. On the surface, it seems like a difficult task....

I like what Drew Hill recently wrote in her Younglife blog about Christmas. Hill says this time of year we often find ourselves wanting more. Let’s be honest—it even starts with wanting more pumpkin pie at the Thanksgiving table! More time, more money, more brains, more gig, more fries! Simultan...

Everyone says you shouldn’t cram for a test, but let’s face it—most of us have, at least once.  I’ve even crammed a suitcase or two.  But inevitably, the zipper rips and the contents fall out, if you get my metaphor.  And while it’s more fun to decide if you’re going to hit the slopes or...
