The Second Coming- William Butler Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert A shape with lion body and the head of … Continue reading The Second Coming- William Butler Yeats

Thoughts on Stranger Things Season One

I absolutely love Stranger Things! This modern day thriller brings us back into the 1980’s with a brilliant cast and a chilling story line. It reminds me so much of movies or shows such as The Goonies, Super 8 or ET.  I recently re-watched season one and plan on doing so again  before season 2 begins which seems really far away, yet time doesn’t go by as slow as we all think. As I geek out for season two, I’ve got so many questions left unanswered. The more I watch Stranger Things the more I  dislike Nancy and Steve. I … Continue reading Thoughts on Stranger Things Season One

Writing Update: Short Story

Lately I’ve been researching as well as creating short stories. Short stories take up less amount of time to write and can be published at a quicker pace then novels if you have the right idea in mind.  Short stories  are of course shorter in length, yet  are completely developed stories which have captivated cultures for years such as The Tell Tale Heart or Arabian Nights. Many authors like Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe or Hans Christian Anderson made a living off of short stories. One of my short stories is nearly complete. The ending is still unfinished, … Continue reading Writing Update: Short Story

Bokeh Film Review

Jenai( Maika Monroe) and Riley( Matt O Leary) are a young, American couple who go on a little romantic vacation in Iceland. Their romantic getaway turns bizarre when a rare flash of light shoots across the sky, leaving them as the only humans left on the island and possibly the entire world.  Stories where people go missing, get stuck in a parallel universe,  or are the only humans remaining on planet earth always capture my attention. It would be an awfully entertaining adventure, yet would grow tiresome and terrifying after awhile which is exactly what happened in this film. Cue … Continue reading Bokeh Film Review

Players “Retiring” is Bad for Tennis

We’ve seen some funny business going on at the grassy grounds of Wimbledon. Over the first few days of the tournament we’ve seen players, retiring from matches, after going down a few games to quality players such as Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer etc.   Let me start off with, saying that if a player is truly injured then they by all means should be allowed to conclude a match over health concerns, nonetheless that doesn’t seem to be the case. Lower seeded players are basically jumping ship, because they can’t seem to handle being defeated. This is a sad event … Continue reading Players “Retiring” is Bad for Tennis

Pretty Little Liars: End Game Series Finale

  So the series finale of Pretty Little Liars aired this week and pretty much blew up my Twitter feed. As it usually goes with this series, some fans were left greatly disappointed,  while others like yours truly thought the end was presented well. Lets get into the review{ Yes, there are spoilers. No reason to keep it a secret now 🙂     The final twist our lairs figured out was A.D turned out to be Spencer’s  evil twin. I found this final twist appealing, yet  do agree there were far better directions for the end game.  I’ve always … Continue reading Pretty Little Liars: End Game Series Finale
