Schools have only been closed for three days as I write this and I’ve been seriously amazed by the homeschooling that I’ve seen happening on social media. Home classrooms, curriculum ideas, awesome projects, guest teachers via FaceTime, and so...
Right now it seems, many of us have LOTS of free-time. Rather than focus on all that we can't do, I wanted to focus on what we CAN do. So, I asked my fellow-writers what their up-side of social...

In a sense, I am VERY body positive… but my BODY is the one saying no. I would love nothing more than to work hard and be reliable. My body, however, is not up for the task. I’m kind of bitter...
