Friday Favorites: Cemeteries.
It’s Halloween. Let’s celebrate in a cemetery! I’ve always been fascinated with cemeteries. When I travel, I tend to visit a cemetery. It’s peaceful and oftentimes, incredibly beautiful. They’re filled with people I never knew. They’re filled with people that time has forgotten. So I rounded up a few of my favorite cemeteries I’ve visitedContinue reading “Friday Favorites: Cemeteries.”
Fiction: “Carving Faces: A Beginner’s Guide”
First, you have to choose your victim. This is incredibly important. You have to examine your blank canvas at length. If you choose one too lopsided, you may have to start over and oh, what a waste… To take a life and then not even use it? However, once you find the perfect one, you’llContinue reading “Fiction: “Carving Faces: A Beginner’s Guide””
Friday Favorites: Netflix Originals
Why is it that TV Shows are so much easier to watch than movies? Last weekend, Jacob and I literally spent most of our Sunday binging The Haunting of Bly Manor but when I think about watching one (1) movie, I groan. Who has time for a two (2) hour movie? Not me. Who hasContinue reading “Friday Favorites: Netflix Originals”
Worst Dates: Was that enough space?
Maybe 2009? And since the name doesn’t matter in this, names have been changed. If I told you that a Mormon kid wanted to go on a date with me, would you believe me? My Puna (grandma) would always joke that God was going to strike me down for entering a Catholic Church (ya know,Continue reading “Worst Dates: Was that enough space?”

Halloween is the best month of the whole year. As soon as October 1st hits, I feel more alive. October – December is my absolute favorite time. Between the holidays, colder weather, and my birthday, it just makes for a fun time. I live in California so it’s not exactly like it is cold inContinue reading “FRIDAY FAVORITES: Halloween Candy”
Fiction: Trick & Treat
“Halloween is for losers”, he said, angrily. Sam’s problem wasn’t that he hated Halloween, it was that no one ever invited him to go trick or treating. Not that he’d want to go trick or treating anyway, because Halloween is stupid. Sam wasn’t exactly popular. He kept to himself and kids his own age stayedContinue reading “Fiction: Trick & Treat”
Friday Favorites: Movies from 1988
I was born on November 11, 1988. It was a great year for movies, let me tell you. I had a tough time narrowing it down, but here are my Top 5 Favorite movies from 1988. 5. Scrooged “It’s Christmas Eve! It’s the one night of the year when we all act a little nicer,Continue reading “Friday Favorites: Movies from 1988”
Worst Dates: What’s in a Name?
One of the writing prompts I had this month was “The worst date you’ve ever been on”. It was the prompt that really solidified me wanting to re-vive my blog. To be completely honest, I haven’t gone on a lot of 1:1 dates in my lifetime. In the past, I clearly had the uncanny abilityContinue reading “Worst Dates: What’s in a Name?”
Oh hey, didn’t see you there! How’s it going? Good? Great. Remember when I had a blog a billion years ago? I started it because I love writing. At first, it started out very timid. I created fashion posts because I was finally at a job where I didn’t have someone telling me what IContinue reading “Welcome Back!”
