Mistakes About Pets

This is a hard, hard topic. My household has never been a fit environment for pets. In childhood, my brother had tadpoles that lasted days in a tank before they died. My dad bought them for him knowing they wouldn’t last but he did it anyway just to satisfy my brother’s whims. I remember being…… Continue reading Mistakes About Pets

Repetitive Dreaming

I thought I left this repetitive dream behind in 2018 because since the new year, I haven’t dreamt of it again. Until this morning. The dream always had an old feel to it. Nostalgia, perhaps, in a wretched way that was both a wish for things to have stayed as they were and for things…… Continue reading Repetitive Dreaming

Happy Belated 4th

My 4th of July didn’t go as expected. Life can change so easily in a blink of an eye. I was so sure in my last post that things would go accordingly as I was picturing they would. How many times have I been here before, with my inaccurate fortune telling? I should know better…… Continue reading Happy Belated 4th

May Showers

I’m caught in the cycle of May showers this week. Rain day in and day out. This brings to mind the “April showers bring May flowers” I was familiar with and liked the saying because it rhymed well. At least the plants and flowers outside will enjoy all this extra nourishment. I enjoy hearing the…… Continue reading May Showers

Wouldn’t Hurt a Fly

Growing up, I watched Dateline and those true crime exposé shows like Snapped and Deadly Women. I was drawn in by the dramatic style of how those real-life stories were presented, though the reenactments were my least favorite. It was fascinating to sometimes see real interviews from people who knew the murderers on a personal level. Some…… Continue reading Wouldn’t Hurt a Fly

Zodiac Animals & Patronuses

The prompt, “What Animal Am I?” sounds like a personality questionnaire I might have taken on Quizilla in my teenage years. Truth is, I don’t know what animal I am actually supposed to be, though I’d like to think I have traits from different ones. I’m not sure if I could pick an animal to…… Continue reading Zodiac Animals & Patronuses

Flying High

I imagine having wings might be like another set of hands or legs, except I’d be super clumsy with using them. If I suddenly sprouted a pair, it would be hard to adjust to the change of gaining appendages like that. Not to mention how many things I would bump into because of them, or…… Continue reading Flying High

Fireworks!

I never knew until some years earlier that fireworks originate from China. That’s amazing to realize a creation like that spread and made its way overseas to countries all over the world. Most of my experience with seeing firework displays is from television broadcasts. Fireworks bring to mind some holidays where they are used as a…… Continue reading Fireworks!

What Do I Hear?

Sometimes it is nice to take a breath of fresh air by sitting quietly outside and listening to what is going around me. I’ve done this loads of times before but this is the first time I’ve ever written down my observations. While the featured photo for this post has nothing to do with my…… Continue reading What Do I Hear?
