I’m a huge geek. I’m a fan of sci-fi, fantasy and old horror. I’m a cinephile and love lots of movies and tv.
Adopting a Special Needs Pet
Almost two years ago, I adopted my first cat. Not a family cat, but mine. One I would be responsible for, and who would live with me, wherever that was. A little backstory: the previous year, I had moved away to go to school. I’d tried multiple institutions closer to home, but none really worked for me. Moving away to go to school meant I was on my own for the first time. That first year, I was in a college dorm. The second year, I moved into a studio apartment near campus. Living in a dorm, I had missed having cats around (my family has always had at least one). Moving into a studio apartment, I decided it was time to get my first cat.
On The Run
Rueth heard her heart beat in her ears as she ran through Niadale Forest. The sound of shouting echoed in the distance, but she didn’t dare look back. Her legs burned as she pushed herself to run faster. Why did I have to inherit dad’s short legs?
Living with Invisible Disabilities
I’m going to start by defining what I mean by “invisible disability”. When someone says the word “disability” to you, what comes to mind? Probably wheelchairs, white canes, hearing aids, and other visible aids for the disabled. You may think of people who are paralyzed, who have a service dog, or otherwise show visible signs of being disabled. Just to be clear, I’m not talking about mental health. Mental health issues such as depression and anxiety are indeed invisible, but have the term “mental health” to be recognized under. Asked to explain “mental health”, most people would probably have some idea of what to say. Listing things like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health issues. What I’m talking about is everything else. The disabilities that are less known, or less spoken about. The ones that aren’t recognized or understood by the general public.
New Year, New Me
I’ll be the first to admit, positive thinking is not my strong suit. I can be cynical, and I’ve battled with periods of depression. After getting through 2020 in all it’s unpleasantness, I’ve decided to try and change that. I’m realistic enough to know it may not work as well as I hope it will, but that won’t stop me from trying.

DCTV’s The Flash Most Popular ‘Ships’
To start, for those who may not know, let’s define the term ‘ship’. In the world of fandom, romantic relationships between characters are called ‘ships’. To ‘ship’ characters is to want to see them romantically involved. While ‘ships’ can be platonic, the vast majority are not. This can apply to canon relationships within the fandom, or to characters who were never in a relationship, or even hate each other. Fans of a particular fandom will generally show their love or support of a ‘ship’ through creating fan art and fan fiction. Those less creatively inclined will go looking for fan art and fan fiction, enjoying what fellow fans have created.
The Men in ‘The Lord of the Rings’
The Lord of the Rings is one of the most popular fantasy stories ever told. Whether you’re talking about the books or the films, both were and are huge successes. All thanks to J. R. R. Tolkien, who created a deep, detailed, and wondrous world for us to enjoy. The world of Middle Earth can feel so real, you can sometimes forget that it’s not. Between the various lands and kingdoms, the detailed history, the different races and their cultures, the different languages, Middle Earth feels truly lived in. Another important aspect that gives life to this world, is of course it’s characters. In particular, it’s male characters.
Why 'Clue' Is an Underrated Film
Clue is a great classic that falls under the category of cult. It’s not hugely popular, it’s a little cheesy, and those who do like it, love it. Not many board games can be turned into films. They just aren’t built for it. A few other attempts have been made, but they fell flat. Clue is the exception. It takes the basic concept of a murder mystery and turns it into a great story. Granted, murder mysteries are a whole genre of film that are quite successful. Though that may be true, none of them do it quite like Clue.
