Well, hello. It's the first Wednesday in March, and apparently I have a few things to say.

There are a handful of moments in literature that will always, so long as I have my mental faculties, come readily to me in a variety of situations. As I was driving the kids home from school this afternoon, I realized with pretty incredible clarity (that usually doesn't find me on the afternoon drive home) that I needed to sit and type out what is, basically, my mission statement. It is a three-part ordeal, and here's where the aforementioned literature references enter the picture.
In Twilight, Bella has a pretty recognizable line early in the novel that even those who've only watched the films will likely recall. She says:
About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him - and I didn’t know how potent that part might be - that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
Ask yourself these three questions, Tatiana Metanova, and you will know who you are.
Ask: What do you believe in? What do you hope for? What do you love?
