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”

Regret

During my years at college, I decided to grow my hair out. It doesn’t seem like a monumental decision. However, it was a pretty big decision for me, as I had never permitted my hair to grow past my shoulders, because my hair is more or less a sentient being capable of complex thought; it’s kindContinue reading “Regret”

Favorite Anime Openings

Music is imperative when I’m working on a writing project. I’m one of those obnoxious people who crafts specific playlists for each story I’m writing, and I listen to them when working on said projects. But sometimes, my well of inspiration runs a bit dry, and I need a different kind of musical inspiration to get theContinue reading “Favorite Anime Openings”

Surviving Rock Science

When I was in my final year of college, I had to take a lab science. It was a requirement foisted upon me, not a choice. I’d thought that I dodged it, because I took an online astronomy class with a “lab” over the summer of my second year, but my university saw through thatContinue reading “Surviving Rock Science”

The Digi-Piggy

I received a package in the mail this week. That package contained a glorious piece of porcine machinery known as the Digi-Piggy. Like most scatter-brained individuals, I am notorious for misplacing things. Just last week, I took a pair of brown shoes from my closet to wear to work. I set them down somewhere, went toContinue reading “The Digi-Piggy”

An Elusive Balance

This morning, I awoke on the floor of my bedroom. ‘This morning’ is technically correct, though I should mention it was actually 3:20 AM. Though not necessarily a common occurrence for me, I do occasionally wake up in this fashion – with the lights still on, an unfinished cup of coffee on the nightstand, myContinue reading “An Elusive Balance”
