Inspowering

A couple weeks ago, I went to the #WomenofMarvel panel at the Santa Monica Public Library, celebrating the release of Margaret Stohl’s new Black Widow novel, Forever Red.

Ant Man

I’m currently on a blog hiatus for the month of July, but I just had to break it to talk about Ant Man! So many thoughts about it!!

That Time I Fell In Love

Having never been in love before, I didn’t recognize the feeling. The butterflies in my stomach, that nervous feeling like I might throw up at any given moment. It was strange and unsettling. I couldn’t sleep very well. I couldn’t eat…wait I could eat. I can always eat! But I knew this was something differentContinue reading “That Time I Fell In Love”

The Friend Zone

It’s a classic tale. Girl meets boy. Girl really likes boy. Boy really likes girl…as a friend. I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me. And I’m sure it’s common for men as well. So I know I’m not alone in this. Chemistry isn’t always a two way street. Sometimes oneContinue reading “The Friend Zone”

I Don’t Believe In That Anymore

Back when I was 15 and a wide-eyed, romantic high school kid, I believed whole-heartedly in ‘The One.’ I believed there was One predestined,  preordained (I won’t say perfect, but pretty darn close) person God had picked out for me. And it was just a matter of time till he found me or I foundContinue reading “I Don’t Believe In That Anymore”
