A random yet pleasant dream, more podcast thoughts, book reflections and life

I want to talk about some specific things in the Netflix show called The Society that stood out to me. One thing I felt very strongly about, was about the character named Campbell. When we the viewers first see Campbell interact with a character named Elle, I could tell that something was really off about …

Assorted thoughts on Once Upon a Time, and taking a survey for school

As I’ve said in other blog entries, I’m writing about things in the show Once Upon a Time that have strong effects on me as I’m watching the show for the second time around. But I’m not necessarily putting the topics in chronological order, as that would take entirely too much effort. And quite frankly, …

Should we or shouldn’t we? About equal access…or lack thereof

When it comes to equal access, blind people in particular, are usually an afterthought. So when I heard that Elizabeth Warren (who was running for President this year) actually came up with her campaign merchandise with blind people at the forefront of discussions about it, I was elated!!

TV show thoughts, getting to know me, podcast thoughts and more

The thing that makes this particular thing …

I wrote the following thread on Twitter which reads:I just know that there are multiple someones out there who need to hear this: just cuz 45 is disregarding the CDC’s guidelines, that doesn’t mean that we’re out of the woods yet!! All it means is that hospitals have more room for folks now than they’ve …

Unpopular opinions on different subjects, other reflections and updates

On my personal FB page, I wrote the following status which reads:To society at large, please stop congratulating people on weight loss, most especially when you don’t know whether said weight loss was intentional, nor do you know the “why” behind folks’ weight loss. This is mainly on my mind right now because I’ve read …

Potential music news, podcast thoughts and looking back on many things

On Twitter, I recently posted a tweet that I’m going to expand on here, given that this is my blog. What I wrote reads:If I tweet something using the words “men are” or “men do,” I shouldn’t have to tell you that I’m not saying “all men.” You should have enough of an understanding that …

In an episode of the This American Life podcast, Ira Glass (the host of the show) first told a story about a woman who’s a therapist. And given these weird times that the entire world is currently in, many of this therapist’s clients literally have nowhere to turn in terms of getting some space from …
