#getloud

For months I’ve wanted to share this post.  To share my story.  But for several reasons, I couldn’t bring myself to.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to have my utmost vulnerable moments ripped open for the world to see and judge.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to expose my thoughts and feelings the […]

Censorship Be Damned

Have you ever wanted to say something, but kept it in because you just didn’t want to deal with someone’s reaction? Of course you have. I’m sure most of us wish we could be Sheldon Cooper for a day (or twenty) – me, if I were able to have one super power, the ability to […]

World Book Day: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller

I’m not even going to try and sugarcoat this post. I am completely and utterly biased here because my favorite author writes suspense/thriller novels and I love her work too much to recommend anyone beyond here – yes, I love them that much.

World Book Day: Nonfiction/Biography

Now this is my jam.  If ever you’re looking for me in a book store, this is where you’ll find me – lost among the rows and rows of non-fiction and biographies. *sigh* People fascinate me.

My Birthday Wish

I’m aiming to make this year’s birthday a little different, in a huge way, and I’m reaching out to my friends and family to help me. Three years ago, partly do to with health issues, my bucket list began to grow, but more than that, I began to focus on experiencing the things I was […]
