The Man. The Myth. The Legend.

     Tales of the three main cats in my lifetime so far, and small tails about the other cats I’ve lived with

#WinnersDontWait

A couple of years ago I was in marching band, and while I was trying to stay healthy, I really wasn't. College marching and the coursework took its toll on me and I had to leave the one thing I loved the most, which is music. For about every year I've done marching (six years total; …

Did Someone Say Starbucks?

Last year, I wrote a blog post about how Starbucks was my soulmate. I'd like to do a yearly review of Starbucks, and how somethings have changed, or not changed. Cover photo was taken during my week internship in NYC, and I got the lighting worked out so well in this photo. Note: If you enjoy Starbucks or …

What I Learned While Living Alone

Good afternoon! I hope your day is going as well as mine is.  If you follow my blog, you'll notice I haven't been writing a lot lately. Over the past two months, I've been helping my Grandmother move back into our little house. Which means lots and LOTS of boxes.  I had thought of this blog …

Part Two discussion of Narnia

Yesterday, I wrote part one review of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and The Magicians Nephew, written by C.S. Lewis. The Chronicle of Narnia series is, in its entirety, Children stories/literature. C.S. Lewis wrote these stories for his children, and based the characters around his family. While these books were the only Children’s Literature …

Part One discussion: Narnia

Before I begin my review, I would like to begin with these factors: I watched the 2005 movie before I read the book years ago. Back in the late 2000's, I tried reading The Magicians Nephew before reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I never completed the  book, and felt discouraged about reading the entire series. …

February Gardening Tips

  I won’t be doing any gardening at my current residence, because I’ll be moving into an apartment complex soon. This means I won’t have as much room to garden, like I had planned in January. It actually works out in my favor, because I would like to take this gardening season easy. Love my …
