Fight for It BLURB—
Micah is a small-town mechanic with a big-time dream. He’s found his soulmate in high school social studies teacher Coleman Pierce, but while Micah’s out and proud of it, Coleman’s closet door is closed, locked, and welded shut. Stolen nights are all they’ll ever have, unless Micah can find some way to convince Cole that coming out won’t be the end of his dreams.
Cole moved to Blueridge Junction to escape his past. He planned to make himself a new life, far from home and the betrayal he’d suffered there. He wasn’t going to make the same mistakes again, but he didn’t count on meeting Micah, or the intensity of the feelings the man arouses in him.
But Micah is out and Cole… isn’t. And while Micah definitely revs his engines, Cole isn’t going to risk his job or his newly minted future on a relationship that might not work out. When outside forces bear upon the couple, Cole is faced with a decision. Will he keep his secret and risk losing everything, including the man he loves? Or will he stand with Micah and fight for their future?
*Fight For It is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to language, themes, and adult scenes.*
 
Can’t Fight It BLURB—
For small-town tattoo artist Levi Wells his few forays into love have only brought him trouble. When trouble with a capital T came sashaying into town two years ago in the form of flamboyant young dancer Jay Owens, Levi becomes more determined than ever to stay away from anything remotely resembling a relationship. Especially one with someone so young and different than him.
Two years. That’s how long Jay has been trying to wear Levi down. But, Levi only sees Jay as a thorn in his side and balks at their differences every chance he gets. Luckily for them both, Jay isn’t going to let a little thing like Levi’s reluctance stand in the way of getting what he wants.
Levi is as stubborn as Jay is tenacious and they find themselves at an impasse. When Jay inadvertently gets himself into an unnerving situation, Levi’s protective nature surges forth even as he berates his heart for getting involved. Will Levi stay focused on their differences and keep fighting his true feelings? Or will Jay finally burrow through Levi’s self-imposed walls? One thing is for sure, you can’t fight love.

Can’t Help It, I Cried

I can’t help it, I cried. A coworker shared this blog post and another one handed me her phone and told me to read it. By the end, we both had tears streaming. Maybe it’s because we work with a lot of porcupines. Maybe it’s because we are stressed about the end of the year. But, honestly, I dare ANY educator to read this and not be touched. Actually, non-educators will likely get feels from this one.

My Dad

This post is all about MY DAD! (Well, at least the musical part of him.)
So, this post came about in a strange way. I woke up this morning with the lyrics to Charlie Daniels Band “Devil Went Down to Georgia” on a continual loop through my head. I hadn’t heard the song in a long time, but I looked it up and watched the video and found I still knew about 90% of the words. (Watch HERE if you’re unsure of the song I’m talking about.)

Now, listening to this song made me think about the music my dad played as I was growing up. I don’t remember a time when my dad wasn’t in a band of some sort. Bluegrass, country, classic soft rock/oldies, my dad plays them all. He plays banjo, guitar, bass guitar, fiddle, and sings. He’s extremely talented. And, I should add, he’s self-taught and doesn’t read sheet music. He plays completely by ear.

Anyway, listening to “Devil Went Down to Georgia” got me longing for my dad’s playing (I *LOVE* when he plays banjo, but I don’t have any of that on video) so I dug up some video of him playing. Most of these videos are of 2016 when he was inducted into the Wabash Valley Musicians Hall of Fame. The first video, however, is a crappy cell phone video from a get-together Dad played at a barn party. The quality of the video is terrible, but the fiddle playing is top-notch.

I’m not sure what the whole point of this post is other than to share my dad’s talent and how proud I am of him. Whether you love or hate this type of music, you can’t deny the man is talented.

If Google Was a Guy

A friend recently shared a video with me. “If Google Was a Guy” has 5 videos and I can’t stop laughing at them. Personally, I like video 3 the best, but all of them all hilarious. Can you imagine all “Google” could tell us if it really was a guy? I can’t imagine the crazy stuff Google sees! Be sure to watch all 5 videos. I’m sharing the first one, but they should play through to part 5.

What’s Your Personality Type?

I love quizzes that help determine a personality type. And, if the results are on-point with how I see myself, even better. It’s fun to look inside and see what makes us tick.

I recently took THIS personality quiz and I was blown away at how accurate the results were. My experience may differ from yours, but answer these questions honestly and see if your results are almost creepy in their accuracy.

School Year Winds Down and Teachers Are Losing Their Minds

I’m a teacher. Twenty-two school days of this year remain. The school year is winding down and I’m oh-so-very grateful. But, I’m also losing my mind. Every day, I feel more and more brain cells die. I love my students. I do. But, the end is near and my sanity is slowly fading.

Teachers, do you feel me? Comment below.
Parents have this same type feeling many days as they wait for bedtime. Parents, you can comment as well.

Just a couple memes that spoke to me as I scrolled through today. All of these are accurate.

What Your Favorite Color Says About You

What does your favorite color say about you? Go ahead, pick your favorite color. Do it before you read on.

So what does the color mean? According to Psychology Today the color you pick can tell someone a great deal about you and your personality. (Click HERE to see the whole article.)

Black. People who choose black as their favorite color are often artistic and sensitive.  While these people aren’t introverts, they are careful with the details of their lives and do not share easily with others.

White. People who like white are often organized and logical and don’t have a great deal of clutter in their lives.

Red. Those who love red live life to the fullest and are tenacious and determined in their endeavors.

Blue. If blue is your favorite color you love harmony, are reliable, sensitive and always make an effort to think of others.  You like to keep things clean and tidy and feel that stability is the most important aspect in life.

Green. Those who love the color green are often affectionate, loyal and frank.  Green lovers are also aware of what others think of them and consider their reputation very important.

Yellow. You enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.  Finding happiness comes easy to you and others would compare you to sunshine.

Purple. You are artistic and unique.  You have a great respect for people but at times can be arrogant.

Brown. You are a good friend and try your hardest to be reliable and dependable.  Flashy objects are not something you desire; you just want a stable life.

Care2.com goes into a little more detail with what colors can tell about a person. Click HERE for the whole article.

For me, I am pretty settled right smack dab in the middle of blue and purple, so I have to take both of those descriptions into account. I’d say both colors are about 50% me, which makes sense.

So, what does your color say about you? Do you agree or disagree? Leave me a comment!
