Let me be real with you, I was looking forward to seeing the Happiest Season from the moment I saw the first trailer released on Youtube. But it wasn’t without some trepidation. Every time I see queer films praised in media, I am suspicious. The genre has become a misery-porn fest and as a real-life lesbian (though I prefer to go by queer) I do not enjoy stories that end in misery. I’ve lived it. I’ve had more than enough. Give me beautiful cheesy romance on a big budget, please.
Anyway, this movie seemed decent enough, with a wonderful cast…
Supernatural ended a week ago and the fandom is still tearing itself apart, right down the middle like Rumplestiltskin in a fit of rage. But they have cause to feel hurt. The finale to a 15 season show was far from good and came short in more ways than one.
While many will wave away the fandom’s outcry, their accusations have merit. They are deeply hurt. The hurt lies in hoping, in devoting so much time to loving something that led its hero back to square one with no acknowledgment of more than a decade of growth.
The finale sure…
If you’re anything like me, you know how to make mountains out of molehills and completely derail your life with the kind of ease that those witnessing the chaos will later refer to as elegance. Or stupidity.
Life is not easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard 24/7. Often, we make things much more complicated than they need to be. Luckily, the misery that ensues because of this can be remedied by making a few good choices.
Perfectionism is overrated. That sounds wrong, I know, but you’re much better off finishing something instead of making something perfect.
We’re less than a week away from Christmas and it seems that despite the harrowing year we’ve all endured, people have finally lost their patience.
Stores are full, nobody is social distancing and businesses are defiantly open, with restaurants and bars offering indoor dining.
The number of covid cases in the U.S. has made it abundantly clear that we do not have this pandemic under control.
Hospitals are at capacity and then some. Healthcare workers are at their wit’s end, overworked, underpaid, and forced to work in unsafe conditions. …
Anyone who has researched ways to make money online has heard of Amazon Mechanical Turk. Especially if you need to make money with a quick payout.
Although random menial tasks that pay anywhere from $.01 to $5.00+ don’t seem like they could be a good way to make money, there are plenty of MTurkers that manage to make a livable wage. Some make more than $1000 a month. I’m nowhere near there, but I have managed to steadily earn more and more each month, despite devoting a small amount of time to it.
I don’t think I would bother much…
If you’re a writer, you’ve probably had your fair share of rejection. Sending manuscripts out to publishing houses can be daunting. You’ve probably considered self-publishing just to get the damn thing out there, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Whatsmore is that people, especially your writing contemporaries, may look down their nose at self-publishing. Many people see it as less than or not real publishing. They are mistaken.
Self-publishing is not a walk in the park, it takes a lot of hard work and determination. You’re taking on the work of an entire publishing house. No…
I am a late bloomer. I did not fall in love until I was almost 27.
It was a short-lived encounter that changed me in all the wonderfully good and bad ways that only love can transform a person.
I am grateful for all of it.
I genuinely believe that you do not know yourself until you fall in love. If I knew then what I know now, I would have been kinder to her; I would have been much kinder to myself.
I thought I knew what nervousness felt like. I have had anxiety all my life which I…
There I was, minding my own business, looking at the latest tweets on the feud between Cardi B and Candace Owens, when I saw Chris Evans was trending.
I am a total nerd for all things Marvel. I have seen all of the films in the franchise more than once. I am a fan of Captain America and I enjoy other films Chris has acted in. So naturally, I clicked on his hashtag.
I wasn’t prepared for the reason he’s trending to be his leaked nudes. Nudes, that he accidentally shared with the world.
Did I want to see it…
