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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Writing my feelings (and for myself)

Improvement Believe me, I wish my bedroom were actually this nice. Someday it will be. But I digress. I actually want to talk about my blog and how I feel it has improved. There was a recent period of time where I used the blog to vent. Pretty much all the time. I don’t think […]

Controversy and Backlash in Media

Recently, my mother and I watched The House with a Clock in its Walls. We were thinking about what movie we could watch (or go to see), and that was the one that popped in my head for some reason. My mom decided to look up the reviews on Amazon, and they were kind of horrible. Mostly one star reviews. But they […]

Tweet vs. Twitter Post

It’s no secret that President Trump loves to tweet. What I’ve noticed, however, is how news articles refer to this activity. Some say something like “[Trump said] in a Twitter post”, while others say “tweeted” or “said in a tweet”. Personally, I think “Twitter post” is a mouthful. It’s much easier to say “so and […]

Guess What, I’m a Millennial

I came across another BuzzFeed News article the other day. This time, though, it’s something I completely agree with. Millennials. We were born at some point between 1981 and 1996. So, I came into play two years before the cutoff. At first, life was easy enough. I did well in school, I had friends (to an […]

Is Barnes & Noble desperate?

Lately, I’ve been seeing commercials for Barnes & Noble here and there. It’s kind of weird, because I’ve never seen a commercial for a book store in my living memory. At first, I though it was cool; my favorite store does commercials now. But then I thought about it. Why would they be making commercials […]

Christmas Movie Predictability

During the holidays, there’s nothing quite like curling up on the couch or in bed with a Christmas movie. They make us feel warm and fuzzy, and like everything is going to be okay. And it works, because that’s how we want to feel at Christmas. However, Christmas movies always seem to follow the same, […]
