A few weeks ago when I walked into class there was a note… Continue reading Connecting with Teachers. | Adventures of Shy Girl

I’m really happy I didn’t do anything drastic because I would have missed all the fun that this past weekend had… Continue reading When Strength Takes Over.
Hello! In my Modern British Literature class, we just got finished reading Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. It took me weeks to finish reading this book because, at least for me, it’s one of those books you have to take in small doses.

For the past few years, I’ve really begun… Continue reading Tricky Commas! Grammar is For Everyone!

It was a lot of fun and since I had never been before it was a learning experience. Not to mention the view from the hill/mountain was absolutely gorgeous. In the… Continue reading Spring Hiking | Adventures of Shy Girl
Hello. I’ve now sat at this computer for over 30 minutes and most of that time has been spent staring at this blank page. Okay…semi-blank page…I had the ‘Hello’ typed.
