The Night Circus.

The circus arrives without warning. The opening lines coupled with the black, white and red cover of The Night Circus have held my interest for a while now. I remember picking it up and setting it down several times in the bookstores. Maybe it was because of the size of the book. I can read sizableContinue Reading “The Night Circus.”


Seattle, WA: Day Two.

Up until now my only reference point for Seattle, Washington was the Twilight movie series, where everything was forest and rain. Perfect for vampires who glitter in the sunlight. I knew a person or two who wanted to come here and I was like, “y tho?” and shrugged it off. Then my boss was like,Continue Reading “Seattle, WA: Day Two.”

Why I love the Kingsman movies.

I’m amazed at the number of people who haven’t even heard about the Kingsman movies. The second movie came out September 22, 2017 and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it since about September 2016. In fact, I was so hype after I bought tickets that I found several unnecessary ways to insert the movie into conversation. Co-worker atContinue Reading “Why I love the Kingsman movies.”


Talking and talking but not sayin’ nothin’.

The fact that I blog may lead you to think I enjoy talking about other people’s business. Blogs are commonly associated with sharing intimate details, whether that be about someone else’s life or your own. And while I definitely value opening up about topics that tend to be more difficult or closed off, I don’tContinue Reading “Talking and talking but not sayin’ nothin’.”


This blog is like a box of chocolates.

Sometimes we all need a little extra push in life to accomplish the things we know we ought to. For me, my greatest motivator is food. I’ll climb the highest mountains, I’ll swim the furthest seas, I’ll deliver the blood sacrifice if there’s a filet at the end of the tunnel. Lately, I’ve been testingContinue Reading “This blog is like a box of chocolates.”

Allow me to list all the compliments that come to mind when I think of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval. When the review said “spellbinding” they weren’t lying. That book was magical. I haven’t felt this way about a book since Red Queen. Why do all of the good books need sequels? It’s like fantastic and intricate plots require installmentsContinue Reading “Caraval.”

Friday Top Five


What better time than Friday to dump all the crap that’s been cluttering your brain. All week I shower, and drive, and join meetings while unrelated thoughts play through my mind. Never when I have spare time or a notebook in front of me, just when I’m inconvenienced by life. If I’m lucky, I rememberContinue Reading “9/15/17.”

I Am Not A Cat Lady: The End.

After about six months away, my sister returned home, found some wonderful roommates who don’t mind cohabitating with cats, and finally made plans to move Henry and Albie into their new abode. In the days leading up to her return, I became more and more excited about restarting my cat-free existence. Oh, and about seeingContinue Reading “I Am Not A Cat Lady: The End.”
