Reflections On Having Emotions (Or Something)~ In Which I Draw A Rather Unflattering Parallel

Hi, guys.

So, once upon a time I decided that crying is essentially the emotional equivalent to throwing up.

How My Opinions On TV Shows Have Changed (And How They Haven’t)

Hey there, blogger buddies!

In my post The Trouble With Sequels~Featuring Why I Don’t Typically Like TV Shows, I expressed my disdain for TV shows as a species. I’m sure I have mentioned it in other posts as well.

As you can tell, the tone of this post is probably going to be rather negative. But never fear! If it gets too depressing you can stop whenever you wish and go find yourself a muffin. Just make sure it’s not poisoned before you eat it.

Let’s get rambling, shall we? Continue reading

Salutations, fellow citizens of earth! (If you don’t live on earth, salutations anyway!) I am excited that you are here, and I hope you are ready to be bombarded with words by an overly zealous sponge.

Today we are going to talk about my favourite thing: STORIES

(I mean, that’s practically all we talk about, but hey, this is my blog so I can do what I want.) Continue reading
