Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Five January Favorites

January was one heck of a month. There were some tests and trials, yet through it all, despite it all, there were some beautiful moments of transformation that I am confident came to be only because of those few misadventures. While I’m thankful for the lessons, I’m also beyond glad January is over. Who needs… Continue reading Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Five January Favorites

Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Five October Favorites

Can you believe it's already November? Where did October go?! It seems like right after Halloween ends, Christmas decorations appear in countless stores and holiday music blares on the radio. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let's take a moment to slow down and reminisce on all the wonderful things that happened in October, shall we? Let… Continue reading Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Five October Favorites

Kermit Says: Check In

I’ve recently been obsessing over the British pop band One Direction. I just can’t stop listening to their music! Now don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been living under a rock. I’ve known about 1D for some time now, but if I’m being completely honest, I previously only paid attention to their looks (mmm…Zayn), and since… Continue reading Kermit Says: Check In

Kermit Says: Refuel Your (Metaphorical) Tank

Every Sunday night, my high school principal sends a beautifully crafted email of encouragement and wisdom to the faculty. Of course there’s pertinent information as well, mostly updates and important dates to remember, but at the heart of her messages are words of inspiration—and this week’s was no different. Just three days ago, I received… Continue reading Kermit Says: Refuel Your (Metaphorical) Tank

Kermit Says: Treat Yo’Self

Yesterday I had my first fancy facial at a spa in over ten years…and it was fantastic! Soft robe, tranquil music, waterfalls. I mean, it was everything I needed in order to relax and—hopefully—remedy my sudden breakout problem. I’ve had relatively smooth, acne-free skin my entire life, until a few months ago when I woke… Continue reading Kermit Says: Treat Yo’Self

Kermit Says: Step Out of the Darkness *Trigger Warning*

When I was in high school, I used to cut myself. Sad. Angry. Bored. Blasting Brand New, The Used, My Chemical Romance, or another popular screamo band, I’d take the blade I kept hidden in a little tin box and press it firmly against my right wrist or thigh until streams of blood appeared. This… Continue reading Kermit Says: Step Out of the Darkness *Trigger Warning*

Kermit Says: Take Care of You, Boo!

Between runny noses, puffy eyes, and itchy throats, I am two sneezes away from locking myself in a giant hazmat suit. Just call me “bubble girl” because I need a protective shield to prevent those pesky germs from seeping into my pores. Alright, alright, I know I’m being dramatic, but when half of your students… Continue reading Kermit Says: Take Care of You, Boo!

Dear Kermit: Big-Hearted Hogger

Dear Kermit, I have been broken up with my ex-girlfriend of 2 years for about 3 months now. She lied to me, cheated on, played, and threw away the love I gave her. And while I am over her, it still hurts watching her with her new boyfriend who I know is not a good… Continue reading Dear Kermit: Big-Hearted Hogger

Kermit Says: Be Balanced

Red, puffy eyes. Uncontrollable yawns. Broken alarm clocks. Sound familiar? It certainly does to me! We’re approaching the end of our first month of the school year, and I don’t know about you, but students (and faculty) are already pooped! #tgif In just a few short weeks, I’ve heard a number of moans, groans, and… Continue reading Kermit Says: Be Balanced
