At work, I eat lunch at my desk almost everyday. I have work friends, but I prefer the time to read, browse Pinterest, etc. Sometimes I even work while eating or cut my hour long break down and get back to work. I’m not a workaholic. Far from it. I’ve just always been a solitary… Continue reading My Little Piece of Heaven
I walked into the spa calm, yet excited. I had a rough week and was ready to relax. The day was perfect. It was quiet and hardly anyone was there. For a moment I thought I would have the whole place to myself – which made this introvert beyond happy. I approached the service counter… Continue reading Painful Day at the Spa
Netflix recently added A Different World to its collection and I gladly re-watched the entire series with fresh eyes and a grown up perspective. The Cosby Show spin-off starring Lisa Bonet’s character Denise Huxtable and her experience at Cliff and Claire’s make-believe historically black alma mater Hillman College was a ground breaking show and I… Continue reading What Binge Watching A Different World Taught Me
So what would you do if you couldn’t fail? That’s what I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. Part of the reason for this blog is to find an answer to this question. I talked myself out of starting a blog for many months. I thought ‘who would want to read what I write?’ or ‘what… Continue reading What Would You Do If You Could Not Fail?
Insurgent comes to theaters Friday. I’m looking forward to this sequel and second book to movie adaption in the Divergent series. Though similar to The Hunger Games (can’t wait for Mockingjay part 2!), the Divergent serials can stand on their own. Both stories are about a teenage girl sparking a revolution against an oppressive society… Continue reading Upcoming Movies…San Andreas, Tomorrowland, & Self/less
Hello? Anyone out there in internet land reading this? I’m trying to figure out what I just witnessed. The two part second season finale of The 100 was every bit of television awesome sauce…even if I’m the only person I know watching it. See this post if you’re not familiar with the series. [SPOILERS AHEAD] Clarke’s impossible… Continue reading I Need The 100 Season 3 To Start Right Now!
I think we all have an idea of what we want our lives to look like. Goals, dreams, and expectations for our families, friendships, careers, health, etc. ‘By the time I’m (whatever age or time frame) I want to accomplish x, y, z’. Some of you may have done or are in the process of… Continue reading Great Expectations
I love music. My earliest memories are of my dad playing records on Saturday nights. I was the little girl dancing around in pajamas and pigtails singing along with Whitney Houston in front of a mirror with my hairbrush microphone. As a teen I sang in the children’s choir at church and in school. My younger… Continue reading Embracing Your Limitations
One of my favorite quotes is “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in” – Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968 . How true is that? We’re all broken people. In one way or another we need to be fixed and only God can do that. Life has a way of breaking you down… Continue reading Beauty In Brokenness
