A Special Music Recommendation: K/DA

Hello, everyone! Usually, when I do music recommendations on here, it’s a song or artist I like, and I just say, “Here you go! Enjoy!” and call it a day. Today, however, I’m recommending you such an interesting artist/group that I can’t help but explain them a bit! The group is called K/DA. They’re so […]

Why “Soul” Is Good For Your Soul

Disney Pixar’s newest movie Soul scored 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, and with a rating like that, it should be easy to see why. Except for me, it wasn’t, at first. The first time I watched Soul, I didn’t like it. I didn’t really dislike it, either, but it was just very okay to me. I didn’t understand what […]

Wearing Masks, Then and Now

Back in January 2018, I was traveling from California back home, and I was sick. I had gotten sick halfway through the week of visiting my family, but it wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t travel. However, I was sick enough that I knew it was a bad idea to be in public, especially an […]

WW84: WTF?

NOTICE: This review contains lots of spoilers. Great Hera! Wonder Woman: 1984 was terrible! I am distraught over this, and must complain to all of you accordingly. It didn’t have to be this way. Wonder Woman (2017), for all its flaws, was still an enjoyable, fun movie for me, in part because of my love for Diana […]

My Thoughts On Red Dead Redemption 2

Like pretty much all my other video game posts, I’m severely late to the game (no pun intended). Today I’m here to talk about the wildly popular Rockstar game, Red Dead Redemption 2. Even though it came out two years ago, I only got around to playing it this year. I started it around April, played […]

The Four Movies That Have Made Me Ugly Cry, Part 3: Crazy Rich Asians

I didn’t think this movie would make me cry. I knew the first two on my list, The Fault in Our Stars and Coco, would make me cry, but I never expected this charming romantic comedy to be on this list. I actually didn’t see this one in theaters, though I remember I had thought it looked pretty […]

Aced My Test

In case you missed it, last week I got tested for COVID. And it sucked. Now you shall all know: Yes, I had corona. This made me one of about 9,000 positive cases in Ohio on the day I was tested. Which is a pretty staggering number. Fortunately, my case has been a very mild […]

Thoughts On Hades (So Far)

Hades is the first roguelike game I’ve ever experienced. I’ve never played a dungeon crawler type game before, nor did I know what a roguelike even was before I started playing Hades. For someone who plays as many videogames as I do (which isn’t a ton but is a decent amount) you’d think I’d have […]

The Four Movies That Have Made Me Ugly Cry, Part 2: Coco

You had to have known this one would be on the list at some point, right? If this movie isn’t on your list, I question whether or not you have tear ducts at all. Disney, Pixar, and Disney-Pixar movies are exceptionally good at making people cry, no doubt. I’ve definitely cried at just about every single one […]

My Experience With Getting a COVID Test

I made it ten months into the pandemic without getting tested for COVID. Honestly, I think that’s a pretty good run. I know several people that have to get tested frequently for work or school and whatnot, and I’m ridiculously glad that’s not been the case for me, because it was, shall we say, less […]

Here’s Some Music To Listen To This Fine Sunday

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a good weekend. Mine has been very lazy and relaxing, so to keep up with that trend, I’m going to share a song I like with y’all instead of posting something that requires me to use my brain. This song is actually one you may have heard before […]

This Vacation Blows

Everyone knows the drill by now. You work from home in your sweats, you have a dozen Zoom calls a  day, and you avoid the outside world like the plague (because, duh). But of course, there’s our essential workers, too. Those who are out in the world every day, providing much-needed services ,who just have […]

And again, this is NOT where I am sent something for free and […]

Adventures In Baking: Chai Cookies Edition

As I mentioned in my apple cider post last month, it is truly the season for pumpkin spice! However, there is one seasonal flavor that I think is leagues above pumpkin spice, that being chai. Chai is truly a divine drink, especially iced chai lattes! So when I saw one of my favorite food bloggers […]
