For as long as I can remember, my house has been busy. Growing up with four siblings and seven people in my house, as expected, is a recipe for craziness. Our seven different personalities tend to clash, and after so many years, conflict is inevitable. Personally, I have gotten the worse end of...

Last October, my left middle finger got smashed under a pile of players at football practice. At first, I wasn't really sure what happened, but I could feel my fingernail starting to throb. I shrugged it off, and I set up to run the next play from my offensive tackle position. As I subbed out the next pl...

“I’m sorry I’m being so annoying Nurse Debbie.” I said this about five times after waking up from wisdom teeth surgery. I’m sorry that I asked you to marry me. (I know your already married and I still have another year of high school.) I have no idea what I told you after this, but I a...

Although I am sad about my sister going off to college, I also am looking forward to that day because I will get to move into her room. I finally will be free of having to share a bathroom with my younger brother. No more cold showers, dirty boxers, and left-up toilet seats. In my house, I am...
