So, I thought I'd try something new. Hope you like my waffling about childhood fears. https://youtu.be/F4lXBDsmnLA P.S. I think I've figured out my Pooh character. I'm Christopher Robin.
Please tell me I'm not the only person who has random pretend conversations with people in their heads, complete with facial expressions and hand gestures. Never mind, you don't have to tell me, I already know. Everyone does. Well, maybe not the hand gestures bit, but you get what I'm saying. What I don't think... Continue Reading →
So, I just finished reading a book about Nathan Hale, and I have a lot of feelings. Most people just know Nathan Hale as America's first spy, and that he was caught and hanged. We were taught that he said he regretted he had "but one life to lose for my country", and don't go... Continue Reading →

Anyways, I figured I might as well share a... Continue Reading →
Holidays can be so strange. Like, some I get. Independence Day. Mother's and Father's Day. Veteran's Day. But then we have those holidays that just make no sense. We commemorate the day St. Valentine was executed for performing marriages after they were outlawed by Claudius Gothicus by giving each other dorky pink and red cards... Continue Reading →
So I set out on a mission a while back. A mission to rewatch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe before Captain America: Civil War completely obliterated my nerd emotions. For the record, I succeeded. But for some reason I never posted this until now. I'm far from an expert on Marvel. I just over analyze the movies... Continue Reading →
