Triggers

The last two weeks have been tough. I have had my physical and mental health challenged in a way that I was forced to get off my ass and realize that a pity party was not going to accomplish anything. I had to take action in a way that would force me to get better,… Continue reading Triggers

Movie Trailer Monday: Romeo and Juliet

In junior high I remember watching Franco Zeffirelli's version of Romeo and Juliet. It starred the beautiful Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. It was dreamy and romantic with a haunting soundtrack.

Oh Sharknado, How You Slay Me

It's been almost two weeks since Syfy's Sharknado took Twitter by storm. And it took me until this past Saturday to get my husband to watch it.

The other one made me grin so much during the trailer that my face was hurting when it was over. First up is Spike Lee's Oldboy.

Calming the Voices in My Head Part 1

With depression always looming over my head, I try to be conscious of what I can do to keep it at bay.  Health insurance policies these days are a total joke so I can't afford to go to a therapist. And I don't want to go on any medication such as Xanax because I know the… Continue reading Calming the Voices in My Head Part 1
