“I Hate Feminists”

I had a recent discussion with a fellow snapchatter about feminism. He’d brought it up in a negative light in which I proceeded to ask why he resented the word so much. He had explained that he is currently in the army and does not believe its right that feminists are all about women being in infantry (in the line of fire) but are asking for an easier physical training test.

The First Step to Achieving Your Dream

It’s nearly impossible to surf the internet as of late without running into some type of motivational quote or meme about the simplest of things. Stop Wishing. Start Doing. or The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Create It.

What is it in these obvious statements that we find so uplifting?

For myself, the greatest motivation lies in stories I hear from people who have taken that first step towards something they’re passionate about. Continue reading

More Rihanna Hype – “Immortalized Statue”

I’m not one for celebrity news or gossip, but it was brought to my attention that there was a ginormous statue created in Berlin of pop figure, Rihanna, which she has visited, selfied, and spread across social media.

Upon first glance at the image circulating the internet it was not my immediate assumption of what a statue of someone would be. Not only is the figure in a bikini, not only is it headless, but it also has a face imprinted on its chest.

For most the first question was, why is it headless? Mine on the other hand was, how do you know it’s Rihanna?

After debating with someone who is big into pop culture, there was no doubt that it is of her, at least that’s what was enforced upon me. I asked the simple question considering these pieces of information missing: Continue reading

Graduated, Employed, Married, Birthed, Died

With my onset of traveling, it’s really helped to put things in perspective for me, as far as realizing what is and isn’t all that important. We’re taught and persuaded at a young age to go to school, get a good job, eventually find your true love, buy a house, get married, have children, grow old and die. It’s so basic and typical, where in there does it tell you to experience life? Continue reading

The Quest

Ridding myself of all worries and fear, I’ve decided to try my hand in improv. Thus far, I’ve successfully managed to muster up the strength to attend two classes. Both of which I’ve really enjoyed. This past Sunday, it wasn’t the usual class, this time it was a very vaguely described workshop, that was located in a different area as well. Something called “The Quest”. Continue reading

Self Experience

Have you ever noticed that after you end a relationship, not immediately after, but once you learned to accept it, that it most literally feels like someones removed the wool from over your eyes?

You begin to view life so much differently. With new eyes your mentality is slightly adjusted to allow you to think in ways you wouldn’t normally when you were with that partner. Continue reading

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Film Review

I’m not Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Filmtypically one to know of things far in advance before they happen, like the decision to bring Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to the big screen. Though I do know a kick ass movie when I see it’s preview or so I thought. Having not read a single Jane Austen book, nor having read its parody by Seth Graham-Smith, I had only the 05′ Pride & Prejudice movie to base my expectations on and man were they high. Becoming Jane was another enjoyable film, but that’s a movie discussion for another time. I absolutely love the fashion of the 18th century, British accents, and who doesn’t love zombies? Toss all of that in a pot and you’re sure to have cooked up the movie of the year right? Continue reading

The Travel

"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list." - Susan SontagSo I’ve recently snagged a pretty decent job that requires me to travel for conferences every few months, so far it’s been awesome. It’s always been my dream to be able to travel and sight see for the hell of it and I now get paid to do it. Not yet international, but I get to free myself of a basic 9-5 and see something other than grey dusty cubicles in a florescent dull office. Away from sneezing, hacking, the sound of chewing, and boredom of lame tasks. It’s a break from the mundane weekly routine. What I don’t understand is when speaking with my coworkers (some of which have been doing this forever and some that have just started maybe within a few months) no one seems to enjoy it as much as I do.
