It’s the Little Things

One of my favorite blog series is Tracy Benjamin‘s “My Everyday Life.” Each week I look forward to reading it and getting a glimpse into someone else’s daily life (I may be a naturally nosey/curious person) through photographs. Today, in the spirit of Tracy Benjamin and her blog Shutterbean, I thought I would share pictures of some of the small, daily…

Don’t Make Your Monsters Grow: What Power Rangers can Learn from Logan

[Note: this review includes some mild spoilers for the movies Logan and Power Rangers. You should just go see Logan.] Logan might be the best superhero movie I’ve ever seen.

Home Sweet Home

Having moved one too many times over the past few years, I now have a good sense of what I can do to make my living spaces a bit more me! I moved into my current (tiny) apartment last August and wanted to share a couple things that never fail to lift my spirits (the spirits that govern material things).  …
