Gymnastics is something that has a special place in my heart.

I’ve been having a bit of a rough go as of late.

I feel like action movies have a bit of a poor reputation in terms of the storyline they offer. Action movies can, on occasion, be so jam-packed with violence and explosions that they overshadow any evidence of human emotion, and I believe this is a major turn off for a lot of people. I follow … More Extraction: more than an action movie
I have a soft spot for modern-day Westerns.

Cheerleading is something I personally have never had much interest in.

Game of Thrones fans, listen up; there’s a new series in town, and it’s called The Witcher.

I’m not really one for cheesy, feel-good movies. As you likely know, I tend to lean towards films that portray sinister, malevolent situations because I’m a sick soul like that.

I think for many of us, the concept of self-care is intimidating. The intimidation isn’t so much a reflection of self-care itself, but rather, a mimicry of our own insecurities involved with taking the time to address our own mental and physical needs.
