Lisa Madras: Don't starve your kids of life lessons from ‘Hunger Games’
If you could choose one book as a mandatory read for all high school students, which book would you choose? I know I'm probably going to catch a lot of flack for my response on this one, but my answer would be "The Hunger Games" trilogy.
Lisa Madras: Yep, I’m a sucker for a good ‘Sharknado’
How much value do you place on a good laugh? It seems like the world is divided into three basic types of people: those who rarely or never laugh, those who take a laugh when it happens to come along, and those who live for a good laugh.
Lisa Madras: Here’s a bedtime story with a hoppy ending
What do you think about when you lie awake in bed? I have a really hard time falling asleep at night. I've have this problem since I was fairly young, and remember constructing vivid stories in my head as I'd wait for sleep to come.
Lisa Madras: Sometimes, giving up is your best option
Is there ever a time when giving up on someone makes sense? I know a ton of people right now who are struggling to not give up. We all want to hold on to what we have... it's human nature. And normally that's a good thing. But what happens when your determination keeps you holding on to something that simply isn't good for you?
Lisa Madras: As our ‘sun’ sets, we glow even brighter
What’s the best part of growing older? I've spent a great deal of time lately complaining about turning 40 — in this blog and in my daily life. I'm supposing that my friends are getting to the point where they'd like to crack me upside the head and tell me to "shut up already!"
Lisa Madras: It wasn’t Nirvana, but it certainly was better
When you look into the past, what do you miss the most? For a bunch of my co-workers, who are still floating around on cloud nine from last week's concert, the answer would probably be New Kids on the Block.
Lisa Madras: Despite emotional moments, I’m a Big Apple believer to the core
What is your favorite place on Earth? I have an embarrassing secret to share with you. Two weekends ago, I took a bus trip with some of the Jameson Hospital staff to New York City. When we came through the tunnel and saw the city sprawling out before us, I burst into tears.
Lisa Madras: You’re weird? Join the club — that is, if they’ll have you
What makes you weird? For me, this is an easy one: pretty much everything. The great thing is that I don't consider "weird" a dirty word. The even better thing is that the people who love me, love me because of it, not in spite of it.
Lisa Madras: Surgery delay yet another storm I must weather
What makes you angry? I'm so glad that I had this question in my arsenal, because I wasn't really sure how I was going to manage to choke out a blog this week. I told my editor as much, and he said, "Well, write angry then."
Lisa Madras: I’ve still got plenty of questions, but now I have family to help answer them
What’s something new you’ve recently learned about yourself? Oh, happy day. I've been waiting my whole life to have a great answer to this question, and now that I finally do. I can hardly believe it myself.
