    JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

    I can see it being negative because the perception that they had no other choice than to do things this way, but I don't think being in your late 20s and being married on your first Valentine's day as a couple is awful, because I did the same. I thought of myself as asexual and aromantic until I fell for my husband, whom I met when I was 25. We didn't start dating until I was 27 (in spring), and got married seven months later (late fall). He was 31. We were actually together on the Valentine's day before we got married, but just as friends. He was fixing my car for me. Unlike this couple, I had been living alone for years before dating my husband. We were not pressured to marry quickly, and we did kiss before marriage. Still, he is my only "Valentine" ever, ten years later. Since that aspect of their relationship reminds me of my own, I find it sweet, not tragic. JD seemed content to wait, like me, and Abbey was working as a nurse, while I was teaching.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    I started rewatching Fringe and, upon starting season two, recognized a young Meghan Markle as a junior FBI agent investigating Olivia's disappearance. I had only seen her on Suits previously. As I watched her character interacting with Peter (Joshua Jackson), I started wondering how much of her work her new family has actually seen. Has this question been asked in interviews?

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I wondered that, ut it could also be his awkward way of saying that Lauren is not pregnant again yet. I've known many women to get pregnant almost immediately after a miscarriage.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I don't think announcing to immediate family early is bad. I told my family immediately, and I found out very early all four times. I figured that if I had a miscarriage, I would need their support, so I wanted them to know I was pregnant. Thankfully, I never had that experience. I just feel sad for Josiah and Lauren. I hope that they genuinely wanted to share their loss, not that they felt like they had to talk about it. Pregnancy and infant loss is a topic that is gaining more recognition, and considering their prolife beliefs, they may find discussing their loss to be an affirmation that this life had value and deserves to be acknowledged and mourned.

    S06.E14: Kalamazoo and a Bad Wedge of Brie

    It's about 15 years ago, but Craig and Nancy from Days of Our Lives were a great couple to turn the tables on the aforementioned trope. He was a doctor, too. https://goo.gl/images/Ydnzbn
  7. On a somewhat positive note, Nurie's hair looks more modern and her makeup is toned down somewhat.
  8. The new slang word is "fire", so maybe it means, "Ben looks fire in that pic." My high schoolers says things they like are "fire" frequently.

    Disturbing TV Moments

    Jessica's reanimation Fringe was the scene that stuck with me. It wasn't gory, but I found it horrifying.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Ah, ok. I'm not on IG and I thought the picture above was the whole story. Is boxing and labeling outgrown clothes really seen as part of this "movement". I've been doing that for ages and only recently heard of Konmari through other people talking about the Netflix show. How else do you keep track of clothes you are saving for hand-me-downs? Jimger, Jana, and Lauren all come across on SM as being organized and on-trend.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Jinger never mentioned Konmari, did she? She just organized some headbands in a cutesy DYI way. The nursery teachers at daycare had a similar set up for the kids daily reports. Jinger didn't even say anything about getting rid of stuff.
  13. When I was pregnant, I was more apt to wear tight tops because otherwise I just looked fat. A bump-hugging shirt made the distinction for me. The Duggar girls look like most pregnant women their age to me. Even their long hair is pretty typical, since many young women I know let their hair grow during pregnancy because hormones and prenatal vitamins make the hair thicker and grow faster.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I love expository preaching when it is done well, and I abhor the canned "sermon series" approach delivered by a less prepared preacher using a script. Good expository preaching is like sitting in an engaging college lecture. Jeremy seems to be doing the reading necessary, but he needs training in rhetoric. I haven't looked at the courses in the program in which he is enrolled, but hopefully that is covered in the curriculum. What is the benefit of training in ministry if it does not take delivery of the message into account?

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    I have 20 years experience teaching college and high school writing, so I am a pro at trying to figure out what young people mean from poor writing. My guess would be that Joy thinks it is awesome that the person posting the question wants to be healthy and not relapse into anorexia. Joy has probably never been taught about considering her audience, tone, or word choice.
