Fifty Shades of Curiosity and Controversy

Everyone is talking about it.  You know what I’m talking about – admit it.  The Fifty Shades Trilogy written by E.L. James has been making headlines ever since it experienced a spike in popularity around three years ago when its rights were bought by Vintage Books.

2015 – For Real

It’s 2015 now. I’ve already encountered roadblocks to my resolutions. I’ve already fallen down, yet I’m still standing so that’s something. It’s currently 1:41am, and while by university student standards that’s nothing I was actually intending to make the most of the second last night of sleep I have before beginning school again.  Unfortunately, I find myself… Continue reading 2015 – For Real

Growing Up Sam

Even when I was a kid I thought I was a grown up. I know now that’s not true; I’m still in the process of blossoming, of blooming, of decaying, and rejuvenating.  Just like every other person on the planet I’ll be doing this dance for my entire life.  Birthdays may mark the years, but… Continue reading Growing Up Sam

Our Normal Hearts Give Thanks

It’s 2:47am on Thanksgiving Monday, the day has just begun, and I’ve been awake for all two hours and forty seven minutes of today.  I can’t sleep.  I’ve often heard that writers write in order to try to purge themselves of their thoughts; however, Dumbledore and his pensive along with the infinite amount of books… Continue reading Our Normal Hearts Give Thanks
