#weekendcoffeeshare March 29th – 31st

Hello, again! If we were having coffee, I’d probably be sipping a Keurig concoction, one that involves cream. This weekend, I worked, relaxed at home, and finished Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. Let’s recap this weekend, shall we?

Queer Eye

I love this show. Rejuvenating the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the new Fab 5 are a vibrant group of guys who help turn around the lives of men and women. This updated version of the show is heartfelt, funny, and really uplifting. (I’ve only seen a little bit of the old show,Continue reading “Queer Eye”

A Little Life

I’m re-reading A Little Life, because I love the characters, and Oliver Wyman brings their voices to life. Rereading A Little Life isn’t as difficult for me as it was the first time. The first time, I was too close to the characters and their plight–especially Jude–and couldn’t take a step back and enjoy the story.Continue reading “A Little Life”

The news coverage, from the BBC, details the events of the massacre and what has transpired afterwards, including memorial services, flowers and beautiful affirmations of love from the surrounding community, including this picture: OneContinue reading “Brief Thoughts on the Massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand”

Woke Up Lonely

A cult leader. His ex-wife, and his nine-year-old daughter sit atop a radio tower, 210 feet in the air. They are having a last picnic. In fact, you’re watching the three of them on your TV screen.

Workin’ Moms

I recently just finished this comedy about women in the workplace. It takes place in Toronto. One thing I was immediately jealous of was the amount of time that these women–from all walks of life–were able to take off. One women, Kate, took off nine months.

Sharp Objects

Going home shouldn’t feel nerve-wracking. Gillian Flynn’s psychological thriller Sharp Objects focuses on one woman’s innermost demons as she investigates the murders of two preteen girls in her small hometown. It’s in Windgap, she must confront her mother, her father, and her half-sister she hardly knows. As the clock ticks, as the evidence slowly un-spoolsContinue reading “Sharp Objects”

My Hero Academia

Hello, dear readers! My boyfriend Rory and I are watching a really cool Japanese anime at the moment. It’s about young superheroes. Awesome, right?! My Hero Academia is a show about young hopeful superheroes. It blends high school drama with the action and training involved in becoming a real pro-hero at UA High. It feels fresh, notContinue reading “My Hero Academia”

A Closed Internet

Hello, readers! I love the freedom I have on the web. We all do. Oh, excuse me, I should say had. Recently in the U.S., we’ve lost net neutrality. I was at work when I saw the news alert. I’m enraged and devastated that the Internet is going to be commercialized like television. It’s disgusted andContinue reading “A Closed Internet”
