Thoughts: Toxic Positivity

I wrote this a while ago and debated on sharing. It has felt appropriate again lately. This is not the first time I have discussed this problem, but here we go. For a few years now, there has been this rise in the idea of being more positive, and for the most part, I support […]

My Take on Negative Takes

Every so often, the conversation over bad reviews, negative takes, talking about movies we hate, etc. comes up. There seems to be two schools of thought on this, although I think (as with most things on the internet) that most of us are more open to a nuanced conversation but that we get in our […]

New Routine

Something I have discussed a lot on this blog is my struggles with setting a routine/schedule. I am easily thrown off either by getting distracted, mental health hiccups, Ben’s odd schedule, and working around that, etc. In the past, I have attempted stringent schedules with each hour blocked out.

Why Horror

Over the years of running this blog (and writing for other sites), people may have noticed a certain slant that I have towards the horror genre, at least in terms of movies. It is my most frequently watched genre, one that I love a great deal, and one that I even have written creatively in. […]

Trips I’d Like to Take

Thoughts: Going to the Movies

So I recently went and saw Us at the theater. Going to the movies is a rare treat for Ben and I. Between his odd schedule and the price it’s just not something we think to do frequently. However, when there is something I am really excited for, we will try to make it work, […]

Thoughts: Fashion

Every once in a while I will get into a mood and start watching (and rewatching) a lot of Project Runway. I have an odd history with fashion. It’s not something I have ever loved, but I appreciate and like it. I like watching the process (with shows), and I love following fashionable people on […]

The Trouble with Positivity

So this might seem like a bit of an odd topic for me to blog about, especially considering how open I have been about my desire to be a more positive person. I want to make it clear that I think striving to be more positive is a good thing. We are, in general, fairly […]

Working from Home and Habits

There are certain pros and cons to working from home. One of the biggest cons is actually related to many little cons; it’s that you can develop and stick with bad habits. It’s easy to throw yourself off, not having a routine, welcome distractions, little things that over time build up to massive problems. I […]
