Are you a different person than you were five years ago? submitted by Sisterly Thoughts
In 2006, I was embarking on my first summer since I was five years old that didn’t have a new school year waiting for me at the end of it. Sampson and I were engaged and planning our wedding, though he was up to his eyeballs in All Things Flight School at the time. I spent a lot of time poring over a Naval Aviation forum in an effort to predict what our lives would be like.
A lot has happened in the past half-decade, but I would say it’s been happening to the same person. I hope I am wiser, but I don’t think I’m a brand new individual.
I’ve never seen a single episode, I must admit. If teamwork is necessary, though, I pick Sampson. We work extremely well together.
Does Facebook or Twitter actually bring more stress or good in to your life? submitted by Just an Arizona Girl
The positives continue to outweigh the negatives, especially where Twitter is concerned. I love my Twitter buddies! As Facebook has morphed from a collegiate hangout to a place for everyone from my grandma to my tween nieces to the rabbi who officiated at our wedding, the way I use it has changed. I keep my virtual mouth shut more often than not. With so many people from so may different parts of my life reading, it can be tricky to figure out which “hat” I ought to be wearing.
Also, my grandma thinks that anything that shows up in her news feed is directed specifically at her. This assumption has led to some amusingly awkward moments with folks who have their privacy settings such that friends of friends can comment on their status updates. I think several of us in the family have had to explain to our friends the identity of that mysterious white-haired lady who just left them a comment.
June is National Soul Food Month- what’s your soul food? submitted by NH Girl Displaced
Macaroni and goat cheese, preferably with a smoked Gouda. Devilishly decadent!
If you could live in any other era than the current, which one would it be & why? submitted by Sugar in My Grits
I’m fairly comfortable with our current temporal situation, but I like to think I’d’ve kicked butt with the WAVES or WASPs in the 1940s.
