Teaching the Holocaust

I’ve recently worked on some rewrites for a play of mine called Shoelaces, which I’ve mentioned in previous posts. In Shoelaces, the elderly, yet feisty, character of Ruby (based off my paternal grandmother with a little of my maternal grandmother as well) discusses her belief that there is no such thing as coincidence. I share... Continue Reading →

Watching Love, Simon

I don’t remember if I’ve ever been nervous to watch a movie before… extremely excited, but not nervous. As I processed it a little more, perhaps anxious is a more appropriate word than nervous, but I definitely had something odd going on in my mind as I mentally prepared myself to watch Love, Simon last...

When Did I Become an Adult?

I went for a run yesterday evening on the bike path in Middleport. I typically begin my Middleport runs at Dave Diles Park by heading toward Dairy Queen. As I approached the curve in the path near Dairy Queen, I noticed a small, rectangular mirror laying off to the side of the path, and it... Continue Reading →

Snow Days

As I sit here on my second snow day of the week, I've been pondering what to write for this post. The most obvious memory is snow days when I was a kid. One of the best feelings I remember is going to bed knowing school was already canceled for the next day. In addition... Continue Reading →

The realization is common sense, and it’s definitely a thought I’ve had in the past, but as many times as I've had it before, it didn’t fully sink... Continue Reading →

Balancing Act

I love movies. I love watching movies over and over and over again. No matter how many times I’ve seen a particular movie, I can almost always pick up on something new every time (I’m also the nerd who watches all the bonus features, audio commentaries, and any “Behind the Scenes” footage I can get...

Tofu Fries

Last night marks the third Friday night in a row that I’ve gone to Casa Nueva in Athens for an order of Tofu Fries and a couple of amaretto sours. I’ve loved this restaurant since my time at OU, but I’ve been frequenting Casa more and more over the last year or so, particularly for... Continue Reading →

Here we go…

Hello there 🙂 I've gone back and forth on whether or not I really wanted start a blog, but if you're reading this, then you know what my decision turned out to be. Actually, I knew I wanted to do this when I first got the idea, but I had to wait for my courage... Continue Reading →
