October 2, 2013: Man vs. Self

I’m constantly fighting myself about food, image, weight, exercise, shopping, etc. Sometimes I believe I’m my own worst enemy. What does that mean to you? What are some of your inner conflicts and how do you handle these conflicts?

Spring Break, Baby!

Spring Break is a time where students get a well-deserved break from their routine lives. Some choose going to the beach; some families go snow skiing or other endeavors; and some enjoy just sitting at home doing nothing or getting caught up on sleep. Several seniors might travel to their future college towns to select apartments, tour the vacant campus and become familiar with their future cities.

My favorite Spring Breaks are with my boys in Winter Park, CO. Snow skiing during Spring Break seems to be the best time! The weather is not too cold nor too hot, and the snow is plentiful. I love waking up in a post card wonderland. Besides, we live about an hour from the beach so there’s plenty of time in the summer to go to the beach.

What are some of your favorite memories from Spring Break?
