  • Where to Follow?

    June 12, 2022 by

    Just a reminder that I am most active on Instagram and TikTok, but mainly on Instagram.

    May 18, 2022 by

    It has been an unusual 10-day gap in blog posts. These past three weeks have been extremely busy.

    April 16, 2022 by

  • Movie Review: Scream 5

    March 27, 2022 by

    I’ve never been a big fan of going to the movies for the simple fact that it is ridiculously expensive. Why spend $12-15 on a single ticket to see the movie once? I would rather spend $20 to add the movie to my collection and see it multiple times. This is also so that I… Read more

    March 13, 2022 by

  • Panic At My Computer

    February 20, 2022 by

    I have always been a fan of all things Google-related but tragedy struck recently when downloading one of my books to word.

  • Book Burning Response

    February 9, 2022 by

    I saw a post on a pastor organizing a book-burning event. I do not want to start a religious debate by any means and my point to this post is not to question anyone’s religious beliefs. My reason for the post is to simply pose a question: Am I the only author who is okay… Read more

  • Teacher Certification

    February 5, 2022 by

    Many don’t realize that in order to be a teacher you have to renew your license. In my state, it used to be every five years but thankfully they have changed it to every ten years. The only problem is that one needs 270 points instead of 180. Though that seems like a good deal… Read more
