Movie Review: Inception

Inception is one of those movies that's either met with a groan or a grin - or both. The groan because - wow - multi layered dreams are confusing, or a grin because - wow - multi layered dreams are confusing. Yes, I know I gave the same reason for both. Really, the grin or... Continue Reading →

Summer Is…

Summer is exhaustion not from exertion but from too long a cradle in the sun’s warm arms. It’s red knees from a lack of sunscreen and red lips from strawberry kisses. It’s swimming in pools, mountain creeks, lakes, and salt water. Summer is rekindling old friendships and sparking new. It’s sleepless nights of secrets and... Continue Reading →

June in Review

Summer always comes with relief, but this June seems much more relaxing than any other has been. I've done lots of reading (surprise, surprise), crossed a couple movie off my never ending to-be-watched list, caught up on Gilmore Girls, done some writing, and laid around doing absolutely nothing. People talk about being bored in the... Continue Reading →

Some More Reflections

Alrighty, another rather contemplative post. But as I've been winding down from all the stress of the school year, I've had the time and peace of mind to look back at myself and decipher the strange not-myselfness that I felt for the bulk of the year. The other night, when talking with my very close... Continue Reading →

Writing, Release, and Summer

Summer in all its chlorine scented, air conditioned, peach hued, iced coffee glory is finally here. Finally. I almost don't believe it. This was my first afternoon without obligations and I kept thinking to myself, 'don't I have algebra homework?' The next three months will pass quickly, they always do, but I welcome their release.... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Interstellar

Generally I'm not one for space movies, but this one, this one, oh my word. I don't think I've been that affected/touched/provoked to thought by a movie in a long while. Not since The Tree of Life at least. For me to enjoy science fiction, it can't be so fantastic that it no longer feels attached to reality.... Continue Reading →

weeks

“It is only a week of your life,” Mom says, often, “You’ll have more time soon.” It’s only a week. The words reverberate off the walls of my mind, echoing back and back before the questioning floodwaters fill the cavern. For how long do we tell ourselves it is only a week? Until there are...

May in Review

Wow! May already! Which means June already! Which means the end of the school year already! The end of the school year??? Which means my last year of high school is just around the corner which means college is just around the corner which means ahhhhhh. Much to think about friends. Much too much. Anyways,...

Bookish Memories

My love of reading I owe almost wholly to Laura Ingalls and her Little House on the Prairie books. I actually remember receiving an abridged version of one of the novels sometime in kindergarten, before my reading skills had progressed to chapter books. Most Christmas presents have escaped my memory, but this little book –... Continue Reading →
