Sleepless

The leather of the couch stuck to my legs as I shifted, pulled my feet beneath me and curling against the arm rest.

Who lives in my attic? Why, Al Gore does, of course!

So the night before last, Logan and I talked until 4:30 AM. About what? Al Gore, of course. But not just anything about Al Gore — no, this was about Al Gore as he really is. Living in an attic. Specifically, my attic. I told Logan about how my attic sometimes opens on its own […]

Missing out

Now my sister has a crush, she’s turning 17, starting college in January…and I really wish that I could figure out a way to spend more time with her. I don’t want to miss out on more than I already have.
