Summer Shirts

April has been kind of crazy lately. First there was the blizzard and recently the ‘heat-wave’. In terms of my wardrobe, it has been a mixture of heavy and lightweight garments all intermingled together. However, I do sense calmness in

Je Ne Regrette Rien

I am sure we are all guilty of it – reading about something and being told that it’s difficult and we shouldn’t attempt it! And there I was going, “Phfft! How difficult can it be!” Famous last words! So what’s

The Emperor’s New Jacket

There it was, just dumped on the floor with everyone treading all over it. I thought ‘what a waste!’, so I asked if I could have it and the technician said yes. This rarely happens now, as the college reuses
