My friend Preston sent me this video from a creative conference with Elizabeth Gilbert speaking. If you’ve ever batteled the creativity monster, then, this is for you.


How long have ya’ll been holding out on me?

December 5, 2008

On occasion, I will be forced to drive past the Krispy Kreme doughnuts downtown next to Baptist Hospital. Today, the hot and fresh doughnut sign was lit up. This forced a decision that I have not regretted…. yet.

While in the drive-thru, I stumbled upon this:

Sarah Palin at Church

September 6, 2008

A friend of mine, (and maybe yours) AnnieLaurie Walters sent me this link.

This is legit, here is the link to the church website where they say

Someone must have grabbed it and added it to brightcove so that the
rest of us can enjoy it today.

Researchers found that church attendance has as much effect on a teen’s GPA as whether the parents earned a college degree. Students in grades 7 to 12 who went to church weekly also had lower dropout rates and felt more a part of their schools. On average, students whose parents received a four-year college degree average a GPA 0.12 higher than those whose parents completed only high school. Read the rest of this entry »
