AF

So, my real name isn’t Allie Frost. My real name is not a huge secret or anything, so I don’t particularly care if folks know it, but my actual initials are still AF. And I sign everything with my initials. Documents, emails, etc. I do have very poor, distinctive penmanship though, so forgery would beContinue reading “AF”

Holy

I may catch flak for this… but spelling is important. I’m all for abbreviations, I LOVE emojis, and I’m not opposed to “text speak,” but proper spelling is another matter. When I was in junior high, ripped jeans were a fad. But they were also against dress code. Anyone who dared defy the constrictions ofContinue reading “Holy”

2020 Oscar Snubs

One Shot: Fantasia (1940)

Perhaps one of the most revered – and, simultaneously, the most forgotten – Disney titles of all time is the 1940 symphonic masterpiece, Fantasia.

I’ve Got Plans

Hours at my job vary depending on a multitude of circumstances. Some days I can (allegedly) trek home after 9 hours, which is the standard length of a shift for a salaried executive at my workplace. Though, to be honest, I don’t think I’ve worked a 9 hour shift since I started, and the otherContinue reading “I’ve Got Plans”

Top 10 Favorite Films of 2019

Also, bear in mind, this is a list of my favoriteContinue reading “Top 10 Favorite Films of 2019”

Hall of Fame pt. 3

Okay, okay. It’s been a minute, I know. I’m a bit behind. The holiday season (which, if you work retail, is Sept-Jan) has been rough on me this year. But I am TRYING to get back on track with posting and I appreciate the patience! Though, my job has not been the only reason IContinue reading “Hall of Fame pt. 3”
