Hey everyone!!! I’m looking forward to being inspired. I have always enjoyed the creative aspect of writing but only recently over the past two years have a seriously started engaging in it. I write short stories & poetry.
What A Difference A Year Can Make
On March 6th, 2022, I have coffee and conversation with my best friend of 6 years at a local Starbucks. We were there from approximately 6:45 to 8:45 AM. We hugged each other and went our separate ways. Little did I know this would be the beginning of a nightmare. I went back to college about 1 ½ hours away, thinking everything was okay in our friendship. I was excited to return about five weeks later so that I could spend time with my best friend during Easter.
I saw my very first Felicity Jones movie in December 2016. I was with friends in New York City when we decided to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at a nearby Regal Entertainment Group theater. However, it would not be until nearly six to seven years later that I would get into her larger catalog of movies to see just how dynamic an actor she truly is.
To my surprise, I only recently heard of Like Crazy, which originally came out in 2011. The well-established bond between Anna and Jacob immediately struck a chord in me. I absolutely loved the performances of Anton Yelchin, who played Jacob, and Felicity Jones, who played Anna. They made the characters come alive allowing their on-screen love to permeate naturally.
Love of Country
Nationalism in the United States began in the late 18th century, meaning it was likely sometime around the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. The thirteen colonies, that were a part of England when King George III reigned, were at war with England since 1775. With the promise of independence, Americans became proud of being American for the first time. They no longer identified as Marylanders, South Carolinians, New Englanders, or any of the other colonies. They were one, banded together for the struggle for religious freedom, not being taxed excessively, and being able to make life their own.
Five Reasons Why Emotional Pain Hurts
Emotional pain is any social situation that causes discomfort, uneasiness, or potential hazards resulting from relationships, friendships, or family situations. The emotional pain could be the result of a romantic breakup, the ending of a friendship, or severed family ties. All three of these situations have the ability to cause a great amount of pain and distress in one’s life. What makes it worse is how is one supposed to deal with this sudden pain? It is not easy and there is no easy road to move forward, but I believe the answers are ultimately in reflecting on the situation and taking the proper steps to move forward.
The Age of the Wide Receiver
Today’s NFL due to offensive friendly rules has become synonymous with record-breaking wide receivers. The talent in today's wide receivers has to make many people wonder every season, did we just watch the greatest receiving season ever? The 2021 regular season just ended, and we may be just witnessed the most electrifying rookie season by the Bengals Ja’Marr Chase who recorded 81 receptions for 1455 yards and 13 touchdowns. This included a stellar performance against the Chiefs in which he caught 11 passes for 266 yards (now an NFL single-game record) and 3 touchdowns.
“This drive is going to be talked about [by Ravens fans] for a long long time.” Color commentator, Cris Collingsworth uttered these words minutes after wide receiver Torrey Smith hauled in a 26-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Flacco. The Baltimore Ravens would hold on to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-20. Leading to the Ravens' first season sweep of the Steelers, and eventually, their first AFC North title in five years.
Tecmo Super Bowl
The time is December 1991, and the video gaming sports world is about to be changed forever. Tecmo Super Bowl was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in the United States, but nobody knew that it would become a cult classic that is still enjoyed today. Before Tecmo Super Bowl came out, sports games were unplayable. It was impossible to pass, run, maneuver around the field, or to even a complete a single play. Yet, the computer would effortlessly complete plays. The game was too difficult, thus making it unplayable.
Why do I Write?
I could not have told you when I was younger, but I like writing today because of the ability to tell stories. That comes across as simple enough, but I promise there is more to it. When I was in elementary school we were encouraged to read because we could go anywhere that our imaginations could take us. This was supposed to develop our curiosity and enhance our learning.
