Pushing through writer’s block

Or at least I’m trying to push through writer’s block and get some writing done anyway. It’s kind of weird at the moment though; nothing I’m currently working on feels right. Usually, my ideas and stories flow through me. I know exactly what I’m going to write and I feel good about it. Like “warm […]

Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers doesn’t rememberer her life before she was part of the Kree civilization. All she knows is that she’s fighting an intergalactic war against the shape-shifting Skulls. And she’s working with the good guys. At least, she thinks she is. Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden did a really nice job bringing this part of […]

I stand corrected

In a recentpost, I discussed what I thought was a translation error in Harry Potter y el prisionero de Azkaban. I sent it to two of my friends and one of my former professors to see what they thought. You learn something new everyday, right? It turns out that “Pascuas” actually means “Christmas” in Spain. One of my friends sent me […]

Dr. Eren and the cinematic point of no return

It’s kind of hard to believe that the Oscars were only last week. I don’t know why, but it seems like they were forever ago. However, I will admit that I was more excited than usual this year because 1) Emily Blunt was in two movies that were nominated (Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet […]

My version of minimalism

The Minimalists. If you haven’t heard of them, their names are Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. I was initially introduced to them on Dan Harris’s podcast, 10% Happier. So I started listening to their podcast, simply called The Minimalists Podcast, where they discuss how to live a meaningful life with less. Less clutter, that is. I started […]

Breakdown: A Million Little Things

If it weren’t for Outlander, A Million Little Things would probably take the top spot on my list of favorite TV shows. Is it weird that I even have a list to begin with? Why am I ashamed that I have a list? Anyway, I actually took a break from the latter for a while because I wasn’t really […]

Understanding a kid like Jake

What do you get when you put the stars of Homeland, The Big Bang Theory, and Insurgent in the same movie? Two parents and a preschool director. Claire Danes and Jim Parsons play Alex and Greg Wheeler, parents of four-year-old Jake, who doesn’t really understand what’s wrong with playing dress-up and wanting to be a Disney princess for […]

Sorry, but polarization isn’t in my nature

I was talking to my friend Kaitlyn the other night, and we were discussing the other post that I sent to her so she could read it. She liked it, but she said it would’ve been better if it were a bit more polarizing. Honestly, I’m still not sure what to do with that comment. […]
