The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

“Come now, don’t be shy…Step into the light.” Oh, the chills… If you haven’t gone to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug yet, you need to stop what you’re doing right now and get to that. One of the most intense and epic movies of the entire Middle-earth movie series Peter Jackson has taken on […]

Foam Rollers and Water Pillows

Hello, fellow bloggers! I have taken a small break from the blogging world…mostly because I sprained my neck and I can’t sit for more than 15 minutes at a time and the writing time I get I spend on my book. (Which I finished!!!) Anyway, I’m doing a bit of a different blog post today, […]

Music to My Ears

It is pretty widely known amongst my friends that I have the most eclectic bunch of music you will find on my computer. When people ask, “What kind of music do you listen to?” I’m one of the rare breeds who actually means it when they say, “Everything.” I’ve been on a big bout of writing […]

Skillet: RISE — The Album Review

I’ve waited for a very, very long time to be able to post this review. Skillet is my favorite band of all time — if you follow me here or know me at all, this is common knowledge. I’ve seen them live 15 times, I’ve recorded a song with their (now former) guitarist, they’ve sang me […]

Skillet: Rise — The Singles

I was going to wait for the album to do a full review. But then the title track of this CD dropped and I feel like the entire world needs to hear its glory. Also, whenever I search for Skillet information, and put the time slot into the last 24 hours, I think it’s pretty […]

The Silver Linings Playbook

You know it’s a good movie when… As soon as the credits start rolling, you immediately go back to the beginning to watch it. The only movies I’ve wished to do this for but haven’t were all the Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Harry Potter movies because…well they’re 700 hours long. The movies I’ve done this for: I […]

Proper Grammar In The Workplace

Now, more than ever, I’m convinced this country needs to spend more time on education. Namely, education based on our native language. I can’t help feeling like this friends, family, readers, anyone who comes across this post — if you use improper grammar (typos don’t count, sometimes mistakes happen), I find you illiterate. And if […]


I’ve finally caught up with my Goodreads profile. (, feel free to add me if you’d like.) I spent four hours this morning (I know, it’s pathetic, but hey I got sidetracked) going through my bookshelf. It took me that long to get to 100 books that I had completed. I went through my kindle, […]

Pitch Perfect

I don’t understand why this isn’t the most popular movie ever made. Honestly, I had to pause it like three or four times because I was laughing so hard I almost wet myself. Continuously. For the record, Fat Amy and I should be in some sort of something together. It would be magical. People would […]
