  • Some things you just can’t plan

    I’ve always been a planner. I have a precise schedule in my head, a physical copy in a spiral-bound book and several alarms set in my phone. I guess you could call it a control problem, but I would call it preparedness.

    I plan down to the minute of my day.

    This is when I have to be at work. This is when I eat. This is when I go to the gym. This is when I go to sleep.

    I even plan in my personal life. A phone call goes out to my mom at 5 p.m., my best friend at 6 p.m., dinner with friends at 7 p.m., favorite show at 8 p.m.

     When things go wrong, that’s the time to be of good cheer. When things go right, of course we are cheerful. When nerves are getting frayed, that’s the time to smile.

  • Modestly fashionable

    By Ginger Lumpkin

     The year was 1987, and I was in the 11th grade. I had recently transferred from a small Christian school and was not yet accustomed to the ways of my public school peers. But I was fairly certain none of them would be wearing a homemade, black wedding gown to the springtime formal event.
