My Savannah Story

It's been a while! You may or may not have noticed, but I recently enjoyed a much needed vacation out of town. Over St. Patrick's Day weekend, I traveled with friends to Savannah, Georgia and experienced one of the country's largest St. Patrick's Day parades.

Lorena

In order to distract myself from a rather awful string of luck at work, I decided to dive head first into Amazon Prime's four-part docu-series, Lorena, about the sensational case of Lorena and John Wayne Bobbitt.

The Landslide’s Bringing Them Down

My fandom with Fleetwood Mac began several years ago now, and while I'm not quite as obsessed as I was upon my discovery of their music, they'll always be one of my favorite bands in one of my favorite genres of music. One might argue their true heyday was in the late 1970s to early… Continue reading The Landslide’s Bringing Them Down

The Allure of Tragic People

Some of my favorite books, stories, films, and histories are about tragic people. You know those individuals whose stars shine so brightly and flashes across the sky so quickly, it either burns out or comes to an abrupt halt? Well, I loved reading novels like Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, The Virgin Suicides, etc. I still… Continue reading The Allure of Tragic People
