Trying to Become a Marvel Fan (by watching about 15 movies in about a week) Or; a completely unauthoritative review of a lot of Marvel Movies

To begin, I did this wayy back in December. December was significant for two reasons. 1) I was on Christmas break. 2) I got my one week free trial of Disney Plus. This provided the perfect setting for catching up on my Marvel movies. Now, I didn't watch all of the Marvel movies in one... Continue Reading →

butterfly moments

Take a thread of your life; hold it in your hands. What is it? Is it a sad strand? A strand that makes you smile when you think of it? Start at the end of it, where you are now. Trace it back, as far as it goes. Or, just until the strand gets tangled... Continue Reading →

The largest category was Fiction by far, and mostly fantasy/sci-fi, but I am branching out. (Slowly.) Fiction Favorites: Renegades - Marissa... Continue Reading →

southern gothic

There are little white churches with boards over the windows. The sign out front still invites guests to come at 10:30 for service and 9:30 for Sunday school. The parking lot is always empty during those times. Occasionally, you'll see light coming through the windows late at night. Ignore it. At night, you can sometimes... Continue Reading →


This month marks a year since I began consistently journaling. *cue applause* My relationship with diaries and journals begins back in elementary school, with a tiny pink Ariel notebook. I wrote in very bad handwriting with even worse spelling the things that happened in my very exciting second grade life. I quit that after a... Continue Reading →
