It’s been awhile since my fingers have felt the smooth touch of a keyboard. I missed it. I missed the way the keyboard felt when I typed. I missed that blinking cursor and that damned writer’s block. I missed writing. Well, I’m back. And I’m not going anywhere. This summer has been an interesting one to say...

Lately Disney seems to be pumping out live action remakes of their classics over the last few years. The latest of the live action films that is set to be released March 17, is a tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast. It also happens to be one of my favorites.

Fast paced city life or the empty open road where nothing but fresh air hits your skin and the sound of a pin dropping is the only sound you hear? Sometimes with all the craziness that is our life, we need to get away and relax for a little bit. We all need a vacation at one point or another, even...

Driving down an empty pitch black road, with ‘Simple Man’ blasting through the speakers. At that moment, I was on my way to Whippany, New Jersey to get to the Supernatural Convention for the first time. With my navigation system leading the way, my heart was racing faster by the minute. ...

It’s been quite a while since I posted. I guess I just needed something to happen, and help me put a spark in my writing.  So here goes nothing... Being sent to a Catholic School for most of your life, you tend to get brainwashed into thinking all the wrong things about religion. You get taught that...

Senior year of college. Well, here it is, the moment I’ve been waiting for. Another four years of my life just flew by. It’s insane to think that just four years ago I started college, and now I have made friends for a lifetime and figured out what I want to do with my life. If you were to ask ...

Fifteen years ago, the unthinkable happened. Two airplanes hit the World Trade Center - the Twin Towers. It was the most shocking moment in American history. It’s insane to think it happened fifteen years ago already. I remember bits and pieces of that day; I was in the first grade and the day...
