I got married the day after Trump’s inauguration, and ironically, boarded a cruise ship to Mexico for an awesome honeymoon. I got back and was shocked to hear about everything that had happened in a week. What was even more shocking (sort of) was how much discord there was between Christians.

Democracy is not looking up here in America. It has been a tough election season, and in an unique turn of events, we have two candidates that are, well, tough to vote for. Even after two insane presidential debates, there are most likely a few people who are unsure who they are going to vote […]
Symbols and their usage can be a powerful thing. Within literature, music, and film, symbolism is used to communicate a particular abstract truth by using concrete images.

I started out in a call center taking calls for our auto insurance policy holders. People called in for […]
Kanye West’s 7th album, The Life of Pablo (TLOP) was released a few weeks ago. On this album, Kanye gives his listeners a window into his life and thoughts.

I love books. Books have been my faithful companions since childhood. I remember always having a book with me, no matter where I went, even if I was going to a large social gathering, I would take a book in my purse. Actually, especially at large social gatherings, I would take a book with me […]
