Literacy Lunacy: K.L. Romo’s Life Before

I usually don’t like historical fiction, so when I cam across Life Before, I was hesitant to read it. Looking over the synopsis, I decided to go against my doubt. The genre may not be my first pick, but K.L. Romo’s unique interlacing of history, reincarnation, and prostitution is well done. I feel this has opened my mind up to a new genre—in books and life. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: K.L. Romo’s Life Before

A Bit of Thanks

Manners are important. They define you are as a person. It drives me crazy when someone can’t manage a please or thank you. Too often, it’s people who believed their entitled who don’t say so. Whether that’s simply them or a failure on their upbringing, I don’t know. What I do know is if you need something, you don’t demand. You ask and add a … Continue reading A Bit of Thanks

Before It’s Too Late

Get ready because I’m about to get morbid. Death is my inspiration. I am literally dying as I write this. The same way you are literally dying as you read it. You’re in the future and I’m in the past. What we do during the time in between—and after—is up to us. Some pretend death is never coming and waste away the minutes doing thing … Continue reading Before It’s Too Late

Literacy Lunacy: Eleanor Coerr’s Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

It’s no secret I adore Japanese culture. Since childhood, I gravitated to shows, books, and art relating to almost anything Japanese. In elementary school, I came across Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes and I immediately knew it was meant for me. While its story is a bit nontraditional for a children’s book, it connects with me even today. It stills sit on my shelf … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Eleanor Coerr’s Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

What’s A Little Mess?

Cleaning and organizing was my thing since I was a kid and well into my early twenties. Every thing was vacuumed, wiped down, and dusted frequently. Then I became a mom and all of it seemed pointless. At first, it was okay. My son couldn’t move far on his own yet and I was able to maintain everything as usual. Then he learned to crawl. … Continue reading What’s A Little Mess?

The Only Constant

Active change is the hardest transformation an individual can make. It requires for one to take responsibility of who they are, what they’ve done, and what they’re capable of. It is possible for every one in the world to change, for the better or for the worst. The direction taken is based on our response to any and every situation we encounter. It is the … Continue reading The Only Constant

Life’s a Hobby

For so long, I thought of my writing as nothing more than a hobby. It was instilled in me that’s all it would ever be. Looking back, I realize that it was always so much more than that. It was my life. Throughout all of elementary, I would stay up late at night and write in bed. I’d use my pillow as cover and the … Continue reading Life’s a Hobby

Sweet Sister of Mine

My relationship with my sister has grown so much since we were teens. We went from bickering and fighting about every little thing to loving and respecting each other the way all siblings should. I know that isn’t the case for every one, so I do consider us lucky. We’ve gone through a lot, together and separately, but it’s comforting to know we have each … Continue reading Sweet Sister of Mine
