More Sorrowful Than Glee

There seems to be a lot of tragedy that comes from this show. I’ve only watched a few handful of episodes with a friend, but I never followed it the way others have. Over the last decade, though, I’ve seen some sad things happen to both the cast and the show. The most tragic has to be when Cory Monteith died of a drug over-dose. … Continue reading More Sorrowful Than Glee

That’s So Fetch

It should be a crime that I didn’t know Mean Girls was based on a book until years later. It’s a self-help called Queen Bees and Wannabees. I haven’t read it and I don’t know if I ever will, but at least the movie is super dope. It is a cult classic, after all. I can’t remember the first time watching Mean Girls, but I … Continue reading That’s So Fetch

Binging On Some Drama

Over the last year, I’ve come to learn I’m one of those individuals who go long stretches of time without watching a single show then binge watches about four or five different ones at once. Like most people, we don’t have cable. Our service provider is just for internet, meaning we do have Netflix. We’re currently trying out Hulu and I have no complaints thus … Continue reading Binging On Some Drama

Literacy Lunacy: Becca J. Campbell’s Empath

On the tails of finishing my novel for Junowrimo, I decided to read the novel, Empath, written by the lovely Becca J. Campbell. If you don’t already know she’s a co-creator of the awesome and pretty much spokesperson for the awesome approach to creative writing for the summer. I’ve had opportunity to speak with Becca during some Twitter sprints and other social media platforms for … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Becca J. Campbell’s Empath

Literacy Lunacy: Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars has come to an end this past week and what better way to celebrate than reviewing the first book of the series? I haven’t finished either the book or television series having left off with the third novel and the third season of both. Purely by coincidence, I swear. Everyone has some to hide– especially high school juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna. … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars

Dream a Little

Having dreams and goals gives a different sens of meaning to or existence. They make us each unique and give us a reason to thrive. n the last few weeks, I’d thought about my goals and dreams and what defines me. I love writing and I’m obsessed with anime. It’s always been my biggest dream to finish my novel– any novel, really– and have it … Continue reading Dream a Little

Literacy Lunacy: Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood

Since my interest in ghost stories have peaked since deciding to write one, I’ve searched high and low for other novels of the same topic. There are quite a few I’ve come across and I hope to give them all a good review as time goes on, but today’s book is Kendare Blake‘s Anna Dressed in Blood. The title and cover attracted me to it, … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood

Literacy Lunacy: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Like so many of my generation, I was (and still) absolutely thrilled to hear Netflix is turning A Series of Unfortunate Events into a live-action series starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf (And, of course, there’s Jim Carrey’s role in the film adaption.) Which is an odd statement, seeing as the books are all about pretty crappy things happening to three siblings. I mean, the … Continue reading Literacy Lunacy: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events

Turning Heartache into Awareness

Personally, posting or blogging about the passing of a celebrity is one of my biggest pet peeves. It is intrusive and inconsiderate to the family and friends who are in mourning. But I’m going to make myself the hypocrite by expressing the heartbreak of the loss of Robin Williams. This has nothing to do with how I feel, but how mental illness affects us all … Continue reading Turning Heartache into Awareness
