Everyone has them. Some are minor, while others seem to drive you over the edge. What are they? Pet peeves. Those things that annoy us. What annoys you and why? What do you do if someone annoys you?

It’s what virtually everyone has been talking about for weeks – the eclipse. NBC News is one of the media who have been reporting on it. Watch this video about it. Scientists say it would last 2 minutes and 38 seconds.

Did you watch it? Were you wearing protective glasses or did you build an eclipse viewer from a shoebox (or other box)? Did the eclipse live up to the hype (for you/your friends/your family)? Why/why not?

If you did not watch the eclipse – why?

There are people in our lives that inspire us. Perhaps it’s for their leadership skills or for making it through a hard time. Who, in your life, inspires you? What is it about them that make them an inspiration? Do you inspire others? If so, how?

It’s summer and that means traveling for many individuals and families.

If money were not a problem, where would you like to travel? Why? Who would you take with you (if anyone)?

I came across the list of “21 things every traveler wishes they owned.” In my opinion, some of the items look useful, while others not so much. Read over the list here. What items from the list do you wish you have? What items would you add to this list? Why?


*On your blog, be sure to discuss not only  where you want to travel, but the questions related to the Buzzfeed article.

Put your imagination and creativity to use for this topic of the week.

You are hosting a dinner party and have 10 seats to fill. Who would you invite (dead or alive)? Explain why you chose these particular individuals. What’s on the menu? Why? What topics of discussion would you bring up with this group? Also discuss the location of the dinner party and why you selected it (i.e. ballroom, beach, banquet hall, your house, etc.).
