I was almost on TV. Really. I was almost picked to be the host of a new reality show. Yes, I have been on TV a couple times before. I was the expert interviewed on the news, answering questions about bullying and how parents can help their kids with fears about school shootings. This time […]
I just saw Matt Damon in the film “The Martian” and it made a big impact on me. (No, I’m not going to spoil the movie … but you SHOULD see it.) I will tell you that it has to do with surviving out in space, but I’m pretty sure you can figure that out […]
