Shooting Spree in Memphis Forces Citywide Lockdown

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here” ~ William Shakespeare (“The Tempest: Act 1, Scene 2.) EDIT: I started this specific post the day after the shooting but between work, school, and ongoing updates at the time regarding this specific event, I put it down for a while. If anyone didn’t know better,Continue reading “Shooting Spree in Memphis Forces Citywide Lockdown”

Another Class Introduction

I am taking two classes this semester. ENG1010-L02 English Composition I and ENG 0810 English Support Writing. I shared with y’all the other day my intro for English Support.

What’s up, fine people

Howdy y’all. I know. I’ve been in the void otherwise known as college, work, life. Who knew going back to school 31 years after you were last there would be sooo much work? Ok yeah. We all knew. What I didn’t expect, though, was to feel intimidated to write on here while having to writeContinue reading “What’s up, fine people”

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. Baz Lurmann managed to humanize Elvis in a way that makes you love him even more. Is thatContinue reading “ELVIS: my movie review”

Guess who’s back in school! C’mon! One guess! Yep, that’s right. I am. I just survived day 1 of being back in college after 31 years have passed since the last time I was in college.

Life has been…difficult, lately

I wrote the title to this blog 4 days ago. Four. I just had the hardest time coming up with what to say, how to say, why to say…anything. Then, yesterday the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in Texas happened and I started crying. I cried for the children whose lives were cut short wayContinue reading “Life has been…difficult, lately”

Emotionally Wrecked

It’s been sooooo hard for me to find any motivation whatsoever the past week or so to write anything funny, or uplifting, motivational or encouraging. Heck, just to even write, period. It’s been a roller coaster of a time lately. Lots of ups, lots of downs, things I don’t want to think about or share.Continue reading “Emotionally Wrecked”
