7 Quick Takes (#9) Shameless Pulg Edition

--- 1 ---
I've been back home for a week now. Time flies when you're sicker than a dog and still trying to work your butt off.

I'm always looking for an excuse to use the above cartoon. So, what have I been doing? I volunteered for another website: I'll be blogging and putting together the unit on ethics. The biggest issue I've had so far is not being able to find a YOUCAT in all of Syracuse NY. You wouldn't think that would be an issue. Syracuse isn't that small of a town, but you'd be wrong.

Next Sunday will be my 5th article for Ignitum Today. As I am writing this, the site is down, but as soon as it's back up, you need to check it out. Writing for IT has been enormously helpful for me in developing my blogging skills. Although I'm still not a great writer, I'm a lot better than I was when I first started at IT.

I'm helping with publicity for a new organization in town called the John Paul II Center For Women. It is something that Syracuse is in desperate need of. They work on promoting Catholic teachings in regards to the dignity of women, specifically NFP and Theology of the Body. I'm running their FB page and I'm working on their blog right now. I hope to get a Twitter account going soon.

And last but not least, my Feminists for Life internship. Of course, it got going to a running start while I was in MO visiting family and friends. I was on the computer a lot more than I would have liked to during my visit. I've already been learning a lot, though, and I've met online some like-minded pro-life feminists. Including a dude. Yes, men can be feminists, too.

As mentioned above, James and I did bring home a lovely souvenir from MO. We are both full of snot. Our throats hurt. James is clinging to me, because, hey, mom's supposed to take this stuff away right?

That pretty much covers everything. I've renewed my efforts at finding work that I can actually get paid to do. I've volunteered again to review a book for Patheos. I promise it will be better than my last one. And James just pulled himself up on dad's footrest! My big boy!

  1. Wow, you are busy! I'll have to check out some of these links. I'm a huge fan of JPII's Theology of the Body, so that's awesome your town has this resource now. I've heard of YOUCAT (my kids aren't that old yet) and think it's a great idea too, so blessings as you work on it. :)

    1. Thank you very much. I actually volunteered for the YOUCAT site before I had ever seen the book. I just got it in the mail yesterday and it's awesome! I wonder: where has this been the whole time I've been teaching confirmation? God bless you, too!


What do you think? I want to know.
