|Thursday, June 23, 2022||PRIDE||Prepare a five-minute story about embracing your identity. Coming out and inspiring others to do the same. Found family, fluidity, looking beyond the binary. Naysayers, fighting the good fight for yourself and for others, marches, protests, parades, trying on labels, all the colors on the spectrum. 10s across the board!|
|Thursday, July 7, 2022||NATURE||Prepare a five-minute story about life on earth. From the great, wide-open outdoors to the wee, uncharted interiors of the human mind. Think: salt of the earth, strong as an ox, sturdy as an oak, peas in a pod, a thorn in my side, treated like dirt! An inevitable force to be reckoned with. Beautiful, punishing, restorative.|
|Thursday, August 4, 2022||HAPPY||Prepare a five-minute story about smiles and sunshine. Think unbridled joy—landing the dream job, winning the talent show, or bowling a perfect game. The quest for your soul mate or for the perfect cup of coffee. The Midas touch. The good old days. Tales of finding happiness or letting it slip through your fingers.|
|Thursday, September 1, 2022||CROSSROADS||Prepare a five-minute story about turning points. Taking the job, leaving your hometown, breaking up with not-the-one. Opportunities and decisions – or indecision. Asking if bangs are for you (again). The possibilities are endless! Ready…or not?|
|Thursday, November 3, 2022||LEFTOVERS||Prepare a five-minute story of what remained. Feelings, dinners, or lingering guests; the time there was too much or not quite enough; or the moment you couldn’t quite end things clearly. Cold pizza for breakfast, the last appetizer on the plate, family heirlooms, seeds of resentment.|
|Thursday, December 1, 2022||ANNIVERSARY||Prepare a five-minute story about milestones. Enduring love or loss. The fondness of nostalgia and the lessons of growth. Seconds, minutes, hours, or when time stood still. Paper or silver…extra points if you make it to platinum. Rejoice or reflect on the past while plotting the course ahead. Cheers to many more years!|
