Video of the Day–Haters Gon Hate

Say what you want about this song, but Taylor Swift got one thing right–haters really are going to hate.  There are some people that are never going to like you; no matter what you do or say, you will never get their respect and you’re never going to impress them.  There’s a simple reason for …

Friday Writing Prompt from NaNoWriMo Facebook

Thanks to a temporary rift in the space-time continuum, you encounter your 10-year-old self and have 10 minutes to give them advice or answer their questions. What would you tell them?

Video of the Day 10/27–In Honor of Gilmore Girls on Netflix

I have to admit that I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and I shipped Luke and Lorelai like crazy back in the day.  I remember writing on my old Myspace blog about how I wanted a guy just like Luke (I still do, but he can have a little Richard Castle thrown in).  For today’s …

Rebranding and Catching Up

To All of My Wonderful Readers, Thank you so very much for staying with me over the last months–I know it has been a very long time since my last post back in February and I’m not quite sure why I’ve stayed away for so long.  Back in February, in the midst of that frigid …
