Yea, so I didn't like this movie too much.

Mad Max: Fury Road Movie Review


*Grabs Microphone*

Attention everyone, THIS IS THE MOVIE OF THE YEAR!

When You're Tired ..


Truth is I'm tired
Options are few
I'm trying to pray
But where are you?
I'm all churched out
Hurt and abused
I can't fake
What's left to do?
- Tamela Mann

Tick Tock, Tock Tick


You know the one lesson that I learned the most about from all of my relationships and being single for this long, staying true to yourself.

A Helping Hand


So there was a period last year where I completely lost my mind.

Progress Is A Slow Process


I was sitting down this past weekend and I had a conversation with someone that made me think about how my life was a year ago. I sit here and I think about all the progress and set backs that have occurred to me and I realized that I am a very blessed individual. From 2013 to 2014 and now in 2015, there has been so much growth. When I initially got out of the military, I had to adjust, I had to get use to being in the normal world and how to interact with people. It was a lot tougher than people realize because there's a certain way you have to be in the military to make it out of there with some part of your sanity and dignity intact. But looking back to all of the friendships and failed relationships I've had, I'm just really glad I've gotten to experience all of those lows that I went through.

The Memorial Day Blog


Without the brave efforts of all the soldiers, 
Sailors, airmen, and marines and their families,
This Nation, along with our allies around the world, 
Would not stand so boldly,
Shine so brightly and live so freely.

Poltergeist Movie Review


Just another reason to leave well enough alone when it comes to remaking movies.

Fading Into Obscurity


With each passing month that I get more and more into my blog, the more I start to enjoy life.

Reminiscing With The Past


So this blog is a result of a conversation between two adults not really doing anything at that current moment lol. We actually talked about a lot of things, one of them being the fact that we learned a lot in the last ten years. That's basically the time we left home and ventured on to college, and for me the military afterwards. We talked about some of the trials and tribulations that we dealt with and we overcame, and out of that came the question of the day; "If I could talk to my younger self, what would I say?".

Maggie Movie Review


So this movie was really well reviewed and the trailers looked really great, but I was really disappointed in this movie.

Don't Feed The Trolls

The one thing that amuses me the most on social media are none other than trolls.

Don't Poke The Bear



So I had a full blown mental breakdown the other day that no one knew about.

Cold Hard Steele


So keeping with the flow of introducing people that most wouldn't think I know, but mean the world to me & helped influenced me in some kind of way; I want to introduce you guys to Ms. Xania Steele. Now a lot of people that are real close to me, (and I mean real close), that went to college know all about Xania and how awesome of a person she is. I'm never one to fully disclose relationships or dealings with women, but this is about as close as "sweetheart" that I've had in my lifetime, well at least in my head she was lol. But none the less this is probably one of the cooler people that I've know since I was just a wee teenager trying to make it in the world. This is somewhat off topic, but knowing someone since you were actually in your teens, (we met when I was 19), and being able to stay friends with them for going on 10 years is pretty awesome to say the least.

Pitch Perfect 2 Movie Review


Meh.

Stop & Smell The Roses


So I was sitting on twitter the other night going through my favorite tweets and I actually found a tweet from one of my dearest friends Niesha Poo that I've been meaning to blog about. That list was entitled 20 Signs You're Doing Better Than You Think You Are, sounds pretty interesting right? For those who don't know how the creative process operates, let me enlighten you just a tad. Any and every little thing can trigger something from your memory and just make your mind click in a way that can make said artist or writer churn out something that is very relatable to something that's going on in their life right now. 

My Way Or The Highway

 
To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve.
And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish.
Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.
- Michael Jordan

I think I've finally hit that zone where I want to be selfish.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month



Mental health needs a great deal of attention.
It's the final taboo and it needs to be faced & dealt with.

Single Folks, You Will Be Fine


Dammit! I fell into a Buzz Feed list trap lol.

The Armed Forces Day Blog


I just want to take the time out to say Happy Armed Forces Day to many brave men and women serving in the service today. Regardless of your job, rank or time in, it takes a lot to serve and it requires a great deal of personal sacrifice to put the needs of the nation before your own. A lot of you brave guys have family back home with great needs, so for you to be able to balance that and serving your country is nothing short of amazing. There are a lot of people that don't agree with what goes on beyond our borders but one thing is for sure, they fully support you in whatever you're given orders to do. 

Spring Cleaning

There use to be this guy who changed his ways and thinking, often.

But it is love just the same,
And most mothers kiss & scold together.
