October in Review

October - ah! What a month! I complain about busyness often, but this month really was the busiest I've had in perhaps ever. The beginning of October consisted of quite a bit of babysitting and a number of morning shifts at the coffee shop I work at. (Morning shifts meaning I woke up at 4:30... Continue Reading →

September in Review

I feel a little funny writing this about a week into October, but oh well, I haven't had time to write this long a post in the last week or so, thanks to school, work, and my own laziness (if we're being honest), among other things. Anyway, here I am now, recapping the first month... Continue Reading →

Summer Watches

This summer consisted of many many movies and I'm proud to say that I checked off six films from my to-be-watched-list. So, without further ado, here are the movies of the summer. Inception - I reviewed this one earlier, you can find that here. The Outsiders - You know, I enjoyed the book, but my sister loves... Continue Reading →

Mohicans and Metaphor

There are a handful of moments in books and movies that strike my heart, mind, and sympathies unflinchingly. Generally these are moments characterized by some sort of passionate overflow of emotion or thought. One such scene happens to be in my favorite movie, The Last of the Mohicans, a story about a dying era and... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
