Video game review & gameplay: Overcooked 2, Chinese New Year DLC

Overcooked is so addicting. We recently played their Chinese New Year downloadable content (dlc) extras and it is so cute. There were others such as making s'mores in the campfire series or smoothies for a beach-themed dlc. All were pretty good. I am so impressed with the graphics and the detailing. I would totally recommend [...]



When I was in middle school, I had this ice skating fall that left me having a larger-than-a-paper-cut cut on my left leg that took what felt like forever to heal. I was scared to look at it and it felt so raw. It was one of the first times I realized that I'm not [...]

Book review: I’ll Be There for You: The One about Friends by Kelsey Miller

I'll Be There for You: The One about Friends by Kelsey Miller My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book brings out the warmth of 1990s nostalgia. It is a well-researched and thorough book on a seemingly simply loved sitcom only to find out there is much more involved from getting the show on-air to [...]

Video game review & gameplay: Borderlands 2

Book review: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon My rating: 5 of 5 stars I did not want the book to end. I loved Natasha and Daniel so much. After spending the day together, readers will learn a lot about them, life and love. The charming thing about this book is that there is [...]

body language

bird chirps & squawks along with the morning sunrise looking left and right for another as their ally. a continuous hum of undefined squeaks and yells, "I am awake and I am here," i imagine him saying. with no fingers to text or dial phone numbers or type an email, birds communicate through their bodies; [...]
