10 Years of Mean Girls

Posted by Brenna Malmberg

I'll be the first to admit it: Yes, I just went from eradicating malaria to celebrating 10 years of Mean Girls in about 20 minutes. I guess it's just a big week. Or something like that …

Regardless, I might as well join the rest of the world in reminiscing on all the quotes during this "holiday." They wouldn't be so fresh and quick off my tongue if I hadn't streamed it on Netflix already this weekend, not knowing this occasion was upon us. (Side note: I watched Mean Girls 2 before Mean Girls, and yeah, it's terrible as expected.) . . .

Worldly Wednesday: Mosquito Week with Bill Gates

Worldly Wednesday

Here in America, we view this tiny insect, not as a killer, but more as a nuisance. Oh, how that statement proves false. We slap it and go "ewww," but we live in a land where its bite doesn't mean life or death. Inhabitants of other countries fight to survive its disease carrying and spreading existence. . . .

Psalm 23 Calligraphy

Spring at University of Virginia

Pretty flowering tree blooms near our apartment.

Back in Sunday school, my teacher, Staci, challenged our little class to scripture memory. My young brain had recited a verse or two, but this time, Maloree and I were assigned all of Psalm 23. And while scripture memory isn't about the prize, we were excited that all six verses got us a sleepover, pizza and Dr. Pepper. . . .

Virginia vs. Duke Lacrosse

Virginia lacrosse players depend the goal.

I've seen lacrosse twice, and I still don't understand it. But, it makes for great pictures. Virginia lost this ACC match against Duke, 17-15. Virginia is still a great team, ranking No. 11. They are upstaged by Duke though; they are No. 2. . . .

Easter Weekend: Eggs, Hike and Calligraphy

Easter Calligraphy - Leaves

For Easter, I practiced my fake calligraphy and ornaments, such as leaves and curls.

Easter weekend is winding down, and I hope everyone got to reflect on our Savior and spend time with friends and family. Our holiday, while low key, included some creative and adventurous activities. . . .
