Ducks on Campus

So Troy and I were wandering around campus after I got off work yesterday, and we were feeding the ducks at Lakeside when we saw this! I think we counted 13 ducklings with this one nanny duck.

Euthanasia

I know you wouldn’t know it by looking at my posts, but I am a huge poetry fan. I love reading it, I love writing it, I love it. As some of you may know (if you’re in my class and read my 4th workshop essay), I had a dog named Marley growing up and I had …

Friendly Competition

You know how you and the other members of your family have a sort of unspoken agreement that everyone acknowledges, to see which branch of the family tree will reach the farthest?
