Thanksgiving Week is upon us

I know, I haven’t been on here in a hot minute. School this semester has been kicking my butt. Work has been crazy, and therapy has dived into some deep territory lately. Overall, I’ve just been plain busy. However, I have so much to be thankful for. I get to go to college, and atContinue reading “Thanksgiving Week is upon us”

Micromanaging

verb gerund or present participle: micromanaging We’ve all had someone in our lives who attempts to micromanage every little thing you do. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves.

ELVIS: my movie review

I’m not sure what I was actually expecting this movie to be, but as I sat taking it all in, it quickly became obvious it was unlike any other movie depiction of Elvis Presley I’d ever seen.
