Shakespeare’s Hamlet Reading

One of the pleasures that I enjoy is reading Shakespeare. Hamlet is a wonderful play about revenge, betrayal, and depression.

Doctor Who: My Doctor

At times, my best friend tells me, "You totally need to check out this show." So, last year when he brought up Doctor Who, I was like, sure I can check it out.

Death, Mother's Day

The Truth

Nearly sixteen years ago, I woke up one morning and my life was truly and completely changed forever. My mother had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Basically, that type of cancer attacks your lymph nodes, spleen, immune system and doesn't let up. She had had it awhile but somehow, I always thought that she'd be okay. She had… Continue reading The Truth
