Roasting Marshmallows at the Dinner Table

Using my SUMPRI Marshmallow Roasting Sticks to make roasted marshmallows at the dinner table. 😀 I loves these. I like that they are colorful and everyone can easily see which one belongs to them. Plus, the handle extends for reaching those far away camp fires. Although, I used them to roast marshmallows at my dinner… Read More Roasting Marshmallows at the Dinner Table

Winter Fitness Necessity, Get a Fitness Ball

I hate going out during the winter to do anything other than what I absolutely have to. However, I also hate being out of shape. Turning my living room into a home gym with my limited space, not to mention limited budget, wasn’t happening.

2016: Year of Awesome

After seeing post after post of people constantly saying on social media how 2016 was such a bad year, one of my friends asked on her timeline who among us had a good year.

The Right to be Unpretty

For years my social media feed was a stream of nothing more than pic after pic of me screaming, “I’m pretty look at me and click like.” It occurred to me today when I was looking at my female cousins’ feeds that this is the same for almost all of them. I asked myself, “Why… Read More The Right to be Unpretty

Just say no to doomsday prophets

I’m so tired of people saying things like “the world is coming to an end” and “these are the last days”, saying how “they want to go back to nature” and oh how they want to “reclaim the gods of their ancestors.” All these things people chant in ignorance of the world around them and… Read More Just say no to doomsday prophets


Emptiness fills my heart. I am without completion, void of the loving embrace, void of the gentle kiss. The passion, the pleasure, that can on come from one who is true. Where should I look?  Does my mate exist? Or, is it all a dream? A fantasy? An endless quest? One who is strong, one… Read More Longing

Pink, yellow, blue, green candy-coated chocolate drops!!! Yes, yes, yes. That’s what you get at the M&M’s Store in Times Square. Since I was a child I have always loved M&M’s candies. I remember sitting with my bag trying to figure out which color was my favorite. I usually chose green, since it was my… Read More Memories, M&M’s, and Me

Does Strong Equal Masculine and Other Questions to Ponder at the 2014 DC Shorts Festival Festival

One of the biggest things I pay attention to whenever I watch any film is the portrayal of women. At this year’s DC Shorts Film Festival there are many great shorts featured that also explore this topic. Whenever a woman needs to display strength in science fiction it is always through the lens of maleness.  Not only do these women possess the… Read More Does Strong Equal Masculine and Other Questions to Ponder at the 2014 DC Shorts Festival Festival
