Project J-Curve – The Best Solo Valentine’s Day I’ve Ever Had

I should start by clarifying the title -- I've only ever had solo Valentine's Days, as I've been single every single ruddy one of them. However, this was the only Valentine's Day where I haven't been painfully aware of my single status and made self-care a priority. This also serves to elaborate on my previous Project J-Curve … Continue reading Project J-Curve – The Best Solo Valentine’s Day I’ve Ever Had

10 Things I Learned from Completing the MCU Challenge

It seems like every year, I need a movie to annoy you all about.

I Wrote a Piece of Fan Fiction for 10 Years and Here’s What Happened…

Fan fiction gets a bad rap, and that's mostly because of some of the more...strange products that end up on the internet. While we often see cringeworthy, oftentimes hilarious outcomes that freak out celebrities like James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, or even have entire Twitter accounts devoted to some of the more outlandish musings (and let's not forget "My Immortal"), … Continue reading I Wrote a Piece of Fan Fiction for 10 Years and Here’s What Happened…

I Might Have a Theory About Who Carina Smyth Is…

Yes, it's another Pirates post. Yes, I'm sorry, but only somewhat. Please bear with me for another month, then I SWEAR I'll shut up.
