I always have a notebook around so I can write down my thoughts! Anything from scripts, short stories, novels, songs, to poems! I also love comedy and make my own funny sketches on youtube (www.youtube.com/nataliespack)
There's a corner in my home that has been a bedrock of my childhood but strangely has lived in many different houses. This “corner” has traveled with me over the years and transforms any new unfamiliar house into a home. My family and I moved around a lot when I was growing up, 12 times to be exact, but my thoughtful parents were always able to provide me with this cozy corner and avenue of creativity and escape.
Dear Natalie, You are not a time bomb. Before you set your ambitious and comendable goals, I want to remind you of this: you are not going to detonate at the end of this year if you do not accomplish all of the goals, projects and things you think you should accomplish in order to be "successful." Success is not always what it seems.
Have you ever receieved a gift with strings attached? Or maybe someone gave you a DIY gift, consisting of actual string and glue? Even though it's "made from the heart," it's falling apart. We all give gifts in different ways and have different giving personalities. I have encountered these seven different types of givers. Let me know which one you are or have come across! (Listed below are the humorous and negative ones. I did not include the thoughtful and loving gift-givers which of course, do exist).
It's Christmas time and the family is back together. Emotions are high, expectations are unrealistic, and I can guarantee that this year, at your family gathering, you will find one or all of these roles filled.
This year for Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for you: the person I don’t know, standing 6 feet away from me, with smile wrinkles around your eyes, a stranger.
Merry is a big-city business girl who doesn’t have time for Christmas but fate causes her car to break down in a small town where she meets Nick (whose family business is Christmas) and he helps her rediscover the magic of the holidays.
What if there was one thing, available to all of us, that helps makeup go on smoothly, our skin to glow, and most importantly, gives us self-confidence?
On the top floor of an apartment building lived an old, wrinkly, brown, Basset Hound named Hank. He was the pet of the famous detective Billy Bass. To the humans, the name “Billy Bass” meant something, but in the pet world, it meant nothing. If you asked the parrot in the apartment next door, or the fish in the apartment below, they wouldn’t know who you were talking about. But if you mentioned the name Hank to them, well now, that’s a different story. The parrot would repeat the name and the fish would splash in his tank. “Hank” brought either admiration or fear, depending on to whom you were talking. Hank wasn’t just any dog, he was the famous pet detective.
