Thoughts on math, music, grief, toxicity, trauma, Anne with an E and awesome memories

I recently listened to the rapper Eminem’s newest album and while I can appreciate the album in its entirety, it definitely isn’t among his best albums. I’ve literally been listening to one specific song on it called “Godzilla.” What I love about this particular song, is everything from its instrumentation, to the way Eminem’s rap …

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, …

More podcast thoughts, a weird/disturbing dream, a heated discussion and some school/life updates

The last story on the eppisode of the This American Life podcast that discussed the hardships families go through during the holidays, was another interesting thing to me. Because what this story was about, was a man who’d known that for years, there were folks in Mexico who hadn’t seen family members of theirs because …

Thoughts on TV shows, disability, health, an unpleasant dream and thoughts on music

I know in my last blog post, I said that I’d written all of my thoughts down about The OA. But then I remembered that the way this show actually ends, is with the actors who play the characters in the show, showing most people going crazy on the set. Like, one of the things …

More podcast thoughts, music and life updates, Netflix shows and more thoughts on the Hallmark controversy

When I posted my latest blog entry where I wrote about Hallmark’s recent realization that being in the LGBTQ+ community is a matter of supporting human rights, I didn’t realize that the Cognitive Dissonance podcast hosts had a bit more to say on the matter. And so now that I’ve listened to that particular story …

Assorted bitches, technology frustrations, podcast thoughts, music updates, reflections and a special anniversary

I want to start this blog post off by saying that today is the exact day I created my public blog two years ago.

Life Updates, Thoughts on podcasts, music, social media culture and a few bitches

In my recent post where I listed drinks I love/used to love, I forgot to clarify that the *only* thing on that list that is seasonal, is the eggnog latte from Starbucks. I wanted to make sure I went back to let people know this, most especially because I know that sometimes people assume that …

Assorted Music Thoughts, Thoughts on Boundary-Setting, Toxic Relationships, Rugrats and Assorted Technology Updates

After reading my latest blog entry, one of my friends pointed out to me that they were unsure what the term “satellite campus” means. And given that this person is more than likely *not* the only one who’s unfamiliar with said term, I’ll explain what it means now: when someone talks about a satellite campus, …
