Breaking Down

Whilst digging through some old flash-drives, I found one of my old creative writing pieces from the first semester of my final year of college, in 2012. Just thought I’d share it because the memory made me laugh. For reference, I’m now 24, and I was 20 when this was written.  _______ Some mornings I wakeContinue reading “Breaking Down”

The Fandom Phenomenon

On Thursday, March 24th 2016, I attended my local cinema’s 7:30 PM IMAX 3D premiere of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The early negative reviews did not deter me from seeing the Caped Crusader (Batfleck edition) take on the Man of Steel. I’d eagerly pre-ordered my tickets over a month in advance and hadContinue reading “The Fandom Phenomenon”

Odes for Short Attention Spans

Though I am not a musically-inclined person, as I possess a voice that sounds like a wailing rhinoceros, I am a big fan of music in general. However, I also have the attention span of a hyperactive dog. A hyperactive chihuahua, specifically. Thus, it is very rare for me to listen to one album inContinue reading “Odes for Short Attention Spans”

All It Takes

Winter used to be my favorite season. When I was younger, I loved snow, hot chocolate, Christmas specials on TV, getting all bundled up to go out and play, having days off of school… everything about winter, I enjoyed. But winter, I’ve discovered, is more of a child’s season. Because when you become an adult,Continue reading “All It Takes”

Top 10 Books and Films 2015 Edition!

This year, I kept a tally of how many books I read and how many films I saw in theaters, as I was curious to know what the totals would be. With a few days of 2015 left, my goal of reading 100 books has been completed and I have seen a total of 21 filmsContinue reading “Top 10 Books and Films 2015 Edition!”

My Precious

I’ve been a devoted e-book reader since 2013. Prior to this, I was a devout anti-e-book-reader and pro-regular book reader. I thought that e-books were an abomination, defiling the sanctity and purity of traditional paper books. I just didn’t understand the reasoning behind e-readers and e-books. How can anybody read a book that doesn’t haveContinue reading “My Precious”

Tale As Old As Time

Some stories contain a message so pure – so resoundingly true, and profound, even in their simplicity – that the words withstand the trials of time, and echo in the hearts and minds of dreamers and believers of all ages. I was never much of a “girly-girl” growing up. My older sister played with Barbie dolls,Continue reading “Tale As Old As Time”

Etiquette

Now, I will freely admit that I am not a people person. I dislike most activities that involve interacting with large groups of people. I do not talk to strangers, both for safety reasons, and an inherent distaste for making small-talk. However, I feel there are certain rules that should be followed when in publicContinue reading “Etiquette”

That Time I Ripped My Pants in the Airport

Here’s a little story for Throwback Thursday – a story of love, loss, betrayal, and ripped pants. I went to college in New England, but my home state is Pennsylvania. Specifically, I hail from a region of Pennsylvania known as “Pennsyltuckey.” Because, unfortunately, many folks in the area do not realize/accept PA was a UnionContinue reading “That Time I Ripped My Pants in the Airport”
