Lottery

When I was about seven or eight, I was obsessed with the musical CATS. Like, properly obsessed - I used to watch it every day after school, knew all the words to the songs (even though I didn't know what half of them meant), and dreamed that I could be one of the characters onstage...

Fly

Another addition for Olde Poetry Monday, this one circa 2009. Please enjoy.   I don't get why people tell me, "never change." If I stayed the same, my biggest dream would still be to sprout wings and fly away. It's cute when you're five, but I don't think they have a major for that in... Continue Reading →

Sentimental

Sentimentality - it's both a blessing, and a curse, when you attach memories to objects. It becomes so difficult to let them go. Or, in some cases, far too easy. I had something mentally and emotionally taxing happen to me in the January of my last year of college. When it happened, I was wearing... Continue Reading →

Acceptance

A new entry for Old Poetry Friday, brought to you by Angsty Allie from 10th grade! No idea why I wrote this or if it was for an assignment or whatever, but enjoy!   “I don’t think that way... You MUST be wrong.” Must I? I don’t know for sure. But neither do you. Stop... Continue Reading →

Unusual Skills

You can know someone for decades, and still be surprised when they throw out seemingly random facts about themselves. Obscure little tidbits that don't quite make it into "About Me" sections and convos because there is little opportunity to slide them in organically without sounding like you're bragging. Well, I'm definitely not rife with such... Continue Reading →

In Disguise

I recently left my old gym in favor of a new one, and have been making an effort to eat better. I'm in decent shape, but would like to lose a couple of pounds and improve my strength. All about that self improvement, folks. And then, as I was hitting my stride, I got struck... Continue Reading →

Film Review: Detective Pikachu (2019)

Dir: Rob Letterman Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy, and more. Runtime: 1hr 44min Spoiler Level: Light! As someone who was around back in the late nineties, when the Pokemon sensation swept the globe, I remember the craze when it was at full glory. Not only that, but I actively participated...

Recharge

The past couple of weeks have been an odd combination of relaxing and wild - hence the total lack of blog posts last week. But it has also been a much-needed breather. At the end of last month, my best friend and I drove down to Williamsburg, Virginia to visit another friend who moved there... Continue Reading →

Never Forget

Everyone has things that they will never forget. And I mean never. They become so ingrained they can be conjured from the depths of your brain at any moment. For me, it's mostly music/songs that I listened to so frequently I will never forget the lyrics, no matter how much time passes. For example, I... Continue Reading →
