Never before have I laughed so much at the mere thought of writing a blog. While the subject had long been conceived, the accompanying ludicrosity had escaped the purview of my imaginative mind. Just so you know, I'm quite hilarious, in my own eyes, by my own loose standards. You…

A sense of trepidation that had taken root in the pit of my stomach, had over the days wound its way upward at a glacial pace so to speak, only to manifest itself into pure dread as I positioned myself in front of the laptop minutes before my first virtual…

A Patchwork of Memories: Part Two

I recently watched Soul on my fiancé's insistence and was riveted more by him gushing about its animation genius than the movie itself. As he doled out tidbits of movie trivia, I relished the twinkle in his eye and the sudden animation his voice…
