OFF TO SCHOOL
Students! It's been a long time since class was in session in person. Perchance some of you are meeting new peers. For some of you, college is new to you. Worry not, younglings (and, to those of you who would have joined a campus community for the first time last year, welcome to THIS year; we are still so happy to have you); "Professor" Kent (GV class of 08; student from 05 to 10) is here with some hand helpful advice. Maybe some older "students" would wish to help you out too.
THE BALLAD BETWEEN A FAN AND A FANTAGONIST
College football season (remember THOSE? We had them, WITH fans in the seats in the yesteryear of pre-2020) is almost here, Sports Fans.
Hello again. August 26th is apparently "National Dog Day," a day to...post your pets to Social Media. (I guess there has to be an established day to do this).
The Fitbit Playlist
I've been on my FitBit journey for a while now and I can speak from experience that the walk/jog always goes better with music.
Ah, the memories of syndicated action animation! Cool heroes and evil villains! The good guys always winning (Though, every so often, involving cliff-hanging story arcs to see victory)!
We, the Vocalites, SPEAK!
Wow; what a crazy couple of months the "Vocal" community has had! We have had our requests; and Vocal has been LISTENING! +So many of Vocal's contributors (namely, me) normally master in FICTION and needed an easy place to pigeonhole "Fiction" into the Vocal community (without always calling it "Parody," "Journal," or "Fact or Fiction"). Enter the brand new "FICTION" community and a summer's worth of challenges to promote it.
Pardon Me For a Moment of Your Time...
"Who's sorry now???" (Patsy Cline). "...But I think it's about (Forgiveness, Forgive..." (Don Henley) "...me, I know not what I do! Please FORGIVE ME, I..." (Bryan Adams) "...'m sorry I'm bad; I'm sorry you're blue! I'm sorry about all the things I said..." (Buckcherry). "...Too late to apologize; it's too laaaaaate!" (OneRepublic)
What's In a Name...?
A person's name could very well be their single most important identifying trait. It's the identifier that we use when introducing ourselves around. (Albeit, that I am beginning to have a problem remembering to place a name with a face; and others are prone to butchering my first name without my even hearing the mishap [Ken, Brent, Curt, Brett, Kenneth, etc.]).
