From Memory


While spending the past week reading blogs and articles about “New Year, New You!,” I remember coming across a goal that said to memorize a poem this year. That everyone should have a poem they can recite from memory.

I used to have Wynken, Blynken and Nod to memory. You know, the one by Eugene Field. Though I didn’t memorize it for fun. I did it to win at the Academic Olympics for Poetry. And I had to act it out. It was all kinds of horrible.

But this year, I’ve decided that I’m going to try this poem thing again. And seeing as I don’t read much poetry, I’m not going to do some obscure one. Instead I’m doing this one by Robert Frost.

I know it’s a road that most have traveled on, but I’m confident it will still make all the difference.

Vienna Waits For You


This week has been insane. Like run-around, forget-to-shower, forget-to-eat, forget-to-sleep. Work’s formal party this past weekend was crazy amazing. And tonight’s our Poetry Pahty (I’m sportin’ a wicked awe-sum Bahstin accent). Life lesson posts coming your way on Monday. Until then, slow down you crazy child.
