Homework Project

Friday, August 22, Michael brought home his first homework project. He had to take one of his composition notebooks & decorate it so it was him. I didn’t have any magazines in the house other than a Game Informer & a Cosmopolitan lol. He made it work though! These are all things that he liked on the front of the page (Notice Shakira?!) Then the back he wanted to do pictures!  [Read more...]

What is family?


I’ve mentioned it on here before, I was adopted by my dad when I was around 13. I’m not exactly sure when it was finalized, however I know we changed my last name when I was in 5th grade.  One of the cousins that I acquired when I was adopted, has never really accepted me. I’m not entirely sure, because I am 10 years or more younger than she is, but she has just always been rather rude towards me & it has only gotten worse in the passing years. I have never done anything wrong to her, at all! [Read more...]
