Our Only Hope

I’ve been watching a lot of Star Wars recently. You see, I grew up loving the old movies and the prequels. I remember going to the movie theatres to see Revenge of the Sith; it was the first movie I watched with a PG-13 rating. There are so many intense themes that reverberate through theContinue reading “Our Only Hope”


The hero has sacrificed himself to save the lives of many. Now, it is time to say goodbye to a beloved son and a trusted friend. The funeral music plays, the casket is opened…  And it’s empty.  Whether the “hero” is Captain America, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Aslan, or Jon Snow; our modern-day TV cultureContinue reading “Epilogue”

I will say, Cats is kind of weird looking back on it as an adult, Phantom of the Opera is kind of creepy and Pirates of Penzance isContinue reading “Singing in the Rain”

Worth Your Salt

There’s nothing better than a hot cup of coffee in the morning. The smell, the smooth taste, and the feeling that your brain is slowly waking up all contribute towards the start of a good day. Without coffee… a day can be miserable. It’s harder to think, and for a caffeine-holic like me, headaches canContinue reading “Worth Your Salt”

A Box of Chocolates

Love is in the air. Flowers and chocolates are being sold in every store and dinner reservations can be hard to come by. It’s almost Valentine’s Day – love it or hate it. Half a product of marketing (maybe more than half), and the other part a day where people express their feelings for eachContinue reading “A Box of Chocolates”
