Scott Pilgrim vs The World

When I first saw the previews for Scott Pilgrim, being unaware that it was part of an awesome comic series, I completely missed the point and thought ‘Man, that film looks lame.’ Largely because Michael Cera, as adorable as he is, only ever plays Michael Cera, which, after Superbad became slightly overdone.   But when friends started coming to me, …

Questions that Go Unanswered

I don’t know about most people, but I know there are a group of questions in my mind that are my downfall. Questions that haunt me and fester and burn until I hit a point where I just can’t take them anymore.   I try to be strong, to convince myself that I don’t need answers, because the answers are …

Pray

Do you ever have those moments where it feels like God has taken a sledgehammer and knocked you upside the head with it? Towards the end of To Save a Life, I definitely got one of those. It wasn’t lovely. It hurt. Emotionally, spiritually, and I’m sure I felt the physical reverberations of it. At that point in the movie …

It Only Takes One To Make a Difference

When All You Can Do is Question Yourself

The project, called ‘In My Daughter’s Eyes’ is a collection of letters women are writing to their 12-year-old selves. My younger years, as some of you know, were a time of great darkness for myself. On the outside …

A Story of Sacrifice

Originally today I was going to do a short story I came up with about Good Friday and the impact of what Christ did. Now, I’m not so sure there are any words I could use to explain the profound depth of His sacrifice. So instead, I am posting something short, simple. I find it a contradiction saying ‘Happy Good …

Dig yourself in, or dig yourself

When I got home last night, I was once again, feeling a little depressed. Not so much about life or anything, but about how it seems so difficult for me to fit in. As I was sitting there thinking about that, I realized it doesn’t really matter. Sure, it feels great to have friends, to be part of the action, …
