Murder Most Fowl 2: Dumpster Conniving

No matter where I try to sleep, the birds will always find me. I once had a brief war with a woodpecker that decided prime time for pecking was during the wee hours of the morning, and the location for the aforementioned pecking was right outside my bedroom window. The woodpecker is back, by the way,… Continue reading Murder Most Fowl 2: Dumpster Conniving

I Don’t Fear the Dentist, Dad Jokes Are Another Story

I've never been afraid of the dentist. Growing up, whenever someone asked me which I preferred between a trip to the doctor or a trip to the dentist (which happened quite often for some reason) I always told them dentist. They would always prefer the doctor which made no sense to me because doctors give… Continue reading I Don’t Fear the Dentist, Dad Jokes Are Another Story

Kneeling Outside My Professor’s Office, Cursing at the Gods

I was going to get an 'F' on this essay. This essay that I had poured what was left of my heart and soul into.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

I'm a pretty big fan of Spidey. As big a fan I can be without reading the comics, that is. Unfortunately for me, I had just gotten used to Andrew Garfield as the poster boy for Spider-Man. So when I heard they were doing ANOTHER Spider-Man reboot, I didn't know if my heart could take… Continue reading Spider-Man: Homecoming

Slipping Through My Fingers, Still Within Reach

30 Day Blogging Challenge - Day 28 What is something/someone you miss? I miss a lot of things. But I miss people so much more. I frequently come across amazing people only to have them exit my life as quickly as they came. Sometimes, physical distance separates us. Other times, this distance is emotional. Either… Continue reading Slipping Through My Fingers, Still Within Reach

The Worst Millionaire

30 Day Writing Challenge - Day 26 If you had $1,000,000 to spend, how would you spend it?

People Watching isn’t Creepy

30 Day Writing Challenge - Day 25 Discuss someone who fascinates you and why. I LOVE watching people!
