Finally Another Blog...and Some Oscar Speak

Yes, it's definitely been a while since I've written you lovelies a blog. This is because I've been writing my second novel and I've still been contemplating my masters degree options. A masters in...creative writing. This was actually something suggested by my Psych adviser and something I think may be a really good idea. I have one novel written and another in the works. Grad school could really help me pull my skills together in to one completed published novel. As you can imagine, I'm not writing this to tell you only about grad school, but I actually have something to say...the OSCARS were last night and I have NO CABLE. I do still have the results and a little bit of insight though.
Octavia Spencer in "The Help"
First things first, the reason I am writing, Best Supporting Actress. Before I start saying certain people do or don't deserve awards, remember these are my opinions. Also, I really like Octavia Spencer so part of me is really glad she won the award. She deserves some type of recognition and I hope this means she'll stop being the funny gimmick in the background. I did see her in the help and I enjoyed her, but I thought a lot of her part was a bit over rated. This would include the shit pie incident that I really sick of hearing about. People like the outlandish and so they loved her, which is good and bad because there were parts where she just wasn't that great, but no one seemed to notice after shit pie. In my humble opinion Jessica Chastain was much better in her role, but considering she was the bimbo, I'm sure she was overlooked. The same goes for Melissa McCarthy for her butchy hilarious role in "Bridesmaids". I will say she made be very uncomfortable most of that movie and I loved her even more for it. I am biased being a Gilmore Girl fan though, so that would have been a voting issue. Sadly, I haven't seen "The Artist" so I can't make a decision on that.
Jessica Chastain in "The Help"
I will mention my favorite win...the winner of Best Original Song from the Muppets. I loved all of the music in that movie and "Man or a Muppet was well deserved. It was also hilarious.


I am also glad for Meryll Streep, she's always nominated, but it's been a while since we've seen her get a win. I haven't actually seen "Iron Lady" yet, but I am very anxious to watch.

My only regrets for this Oscar season was I haven't had the opportunity to keep up with it before they aired. Last year I was going to movies just to see what was nominated and this year, the night just sneaked up on me. Next year people, next year.

POTUS is Decided...it is Time for Respect

Potus​ decision aside. Secretary Hillary Clinton​ is human just like the rest of us. This means she is fallible...just like the rest of us. She has humbled herself more than once for this country by owning up to her mistakes and most likely the mistakes of others. She did this because that's what leaders are supposed to do. Admit to your mistakes; take responsibility as leader for your employees’ mistakes. Then you move on from there to find solutions. Secretary Clinton showed courage, conviction, and loyalty. To her party, her President and also her country. As she continues to fight for children and what she believes is best for this country, I have more admiration for her than ever.
I hope that the people of this country will at least begin to treat her with the respect she deserves and has not received. If not for her political views or her public record, for the years of service she fought for this country, for the causes she continues to fight for and for the positions she…

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman



When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 



For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked.

Jesus Loves Me This I Know...Unless I'm Gay

You could move.  ~Abigail Van Buren, "Dear Abby," in response to a reader who complained that a gay couple was moving in across the street and wanted to know what he could do to improve the quality of the neighborhood


I am a Christian, I believe God exists. The following blog is a paper I wrote for my religion class, because I wanted to find in the Bible where it stated homosexuality was a sin. As a Christian I stand by everything I write in that paper and I feel it's time we stop hiding our prejudice behind religion. I am a racist, but it's not because of the Bible, it's because white people are really dumb (joke).

Christian morality is based primarily on what has been established as their word of God, the Bible. Those who have established themselves according to these laws are considered virtuous morally and spiritually. Those who have stepped out of these guidelines have established themselves as…
