Quizzical

Anyone who has a Facebook account is probably familiar with those "quizzes" that clog timelines and cause users to waste time wondering if some assemblage of random questions can determine which state you are meant to live in, what era you were born in or belong in, or which celebrity you are destined to walk...

Run, Birdy, Run!

There are thousands of mysteries - riddles with no easily discernible answers - that have plagued humanity for centuries. The origin of Stonehenge. The true identity of Jack the Ripper. How many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie-roll center of a Tootsie Pop. But one of these conundrums has been on my mind... Continue Reading →

The Middle

Recently, the mid-twenties doldrums have been bogging me down. I feel as though I am not where I need to be, but I lack the courage and confidence to get myself there. But those thoughts of "Get it together!" get drowned out by fear of failure and doubt in my abilities, a dark cloud consuming... Continue Reading →

The Spark

I've mentioned this in previous posts, but I generally attribute my love and appreciation for film to my decision to minor in film during my college years, since I got to experience a broad spectrum of different genres and styles from a multitude of different directors and eras. Prior to that, I didn't go to... Continue Reading →

Friday evening, I worked until 7PM and decided to do some grocery shopping on my way home from work, so I wouldn't have to contend with weekend crowds. I generally loathe grocery shopping, so I ensure I get in and out as soon as possible. The whole "scan it" and bag your own stuff revolution... Continue Reading →

Forking Irrational

But what about irrational anger? Or hatred? I mean, at some point in life, I'm... Continue Reading →

Writing Techniques: Out of Order

It's almost safe to say that no writer writes exactly the same way - it's a unique process for most. Some folks must have absolute silence, some prefer total isolation, others can be productive in a busy coffee shop whilst other patrons are slurping lattes and chatting with friends. It's all up to the writer.... Continue Reading →

The Kitty

A poem inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven." Once upon a morning dismal, while I slumbered calm and blissful, Dreaming of all the joyous things that make my spirits soar - I was wrenched out from my sleep, well before the alarm clock's beep, As I heard the faintest cry come from behind my...

Snirt

Whether you like snow or hate it, it's difficult to dispute that it is beautiful to watch. There is something particularly calming about looking out the window and seeing smooth, unblemished white conquering all traces of green, and flecks of cold crystal falling from the sky, covering everything in a sparkling sheen. And it remains... Continue Reading →
