I need somewhere to share my crazy Sal stories, and what better place than my blog? Sal has already taken over my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Plus, he’s taken over my social conversations — yes, I’m that crazy cat lady who always talks about her cat. Why not let him take over my blog, too?… Continue reading Sal Stories
If it can’t be fixed, then why criticize it? Anyone who knows me knows I can be a tough critic. People usually love or hate me for it. In college and at work, many ask me to edit their writing because they know I’m going to criticize it to death. Others won’t even let me… Continue reading Why I don’t like giving bad book reviews
I didn’t write this post today. I’ve had this written for a while. In fact, it used to be on my “About Me” page, but I decided to condense that page since much of the information there, like this post, belonged in a post all to itself. However, with that said, this post is very… Continue reading Life sucks, but live anyway

Truth be told, sometimes I take naps periodically throughout the day just to dream, since like I said, my dreams are usually better than movies. Last night… Continue reading Out of ammo
It’s hard to hate a Jodi Picoult character. I’ve read a number of her books now, and I can’t recall once hating a character she’s written, even in a book as controversial as this one. One of Jodi Picoult’s prime talents is the ability to present controversial issues without upsetting her readers. She always grasps all sides… Continue reading Sing You Home || Book Review
Today, July 1, marks 2015’s halfway point. I can’t believe we’re already halfway through the year. Each year gets shorter and shorter, and the reason for that, as my philosophy teacher once explained, is because each year is a smaller portion of your life.
