Thoughts on TV shows, movies, a Netflix comedy, being childfree, sexuality and other life updates

I recently watched the live-action version of The Lion King and I’ll start with this: I’m happy that they didn’t take out the very beginning song that’s in the original version of this movie. But it hurts my heart that they got different-sounding singers to sing “The Circle of Life” and other popular songs in …

Numerous childfree thoughts, Hidden Brain podcast thoughts, being supportive and life updates

I posted a thread on Twitter which reads:‪If you feel that you have to tell people how great you are, then you aren’t that great…period!! This thought of mine comes to me cuz of a recent Twitter discussion I saw/participated in. And in this discussion, folks were talking about someone in the blind community whose …

Finishing season two of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, podcast thoughts and other reflections

In an episode of Hidden Brain that was political in nature, Shankar Vedantam talked with a couple people about how an individual’s political beliefs are influenced by the ways in which they think about issues that we’re facing and issues that we have faced in society. I loved hearing this perspective because it’s something I …

More assorted podcast thoughts, childfree thoughts, mixed life updates and togetherness

I recently went back and re-read my Claircognizance journal that I’d created at the end of last year. And the reason I looked at it recently, was because I wanted to see whether I’d put the weekday that corresponded with each date. And I had not actually done that; so I took the time to …

Going back to school, podcast thoughts, more thoughts on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, living as a childfree person and some minor ranting

Something in my second time continuing to watch season two of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina that stands out to me, is that whatever happens at Baxter High (the high school that Sabrina and her human friends attend) closely mirrors what happens at The Academy of Unseen Arts. And so for example, when Baxter High students …

Assorted podcast thoughts, an interesting YouTube documentary, a huge unexpected health scare and some advice

I recently watched a documentary on YouTube that was called Trust Me, I’m Sick. I seriously loved every second of said documentary; it accurately describes different folks living with assorted chronic health conditions. And one thing in this documentary that stood out to me, was how society doesn’t seem to grasp that when people have …

In Anne with an E, Ka’Kwet ran away from the boarding school that her parents had sent her to; and she ends up being able to get away and gets to a spot where her parents find her. But that family’s reunion was short-lived because people from that boarding school end up finding them…and then …

More thoughts on Anne with an E, childfree topics and thoughts on disability/romantic relationships

When I last wrote about Ann with an E, I didn’t even try to spell the name of the new friend that Anne makes in the third season of the show. And since I’d forgotten to look it up then, I made sure to look it up for this particular blog post. Anne’s new friend’s …

More thoughts on Anne with an E, assorted music and podcast thoughts and life updates

In Anne with an E, something that stands out to me, is that at the beginning of season three, Anne makes a new friend. Anne is at a school ball-game and given that she writes for the Avonlea school’s newspaper, she’s supposed to specifically rite about the game. But instead, what she ends up doing, …

Assorted thoughts on technology, Emergence, and being childfree

Something I didn’t write about regarding the latest episode of Emergence, is that we the viewers learn for sure that Jo still has romantic feelings for her ex-husband. Jo also has romantic feelings for Agent Ryan Brooks (who’s the FBI agent that’s kinda competing with Jo in a sense, to solve the case of Piper). …
