Hello fellow writers, Today I wanted to hear everybody's opinion on their favorite Hunger Games novel and/or movie. I've been quite hyped about the topic lately because, as quite a few of my followers know, I have been reading the first book of the series for a novel review on this blog! I'm sorry that [...]
“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality;
their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is,
but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are
taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love
if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide
their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio.
You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you
carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are
a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them,
and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality.
You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
– Jim Morrison

I recently finished the first season of the CW channel's T.V. show "The 100" and for all those who enjoy the post-apocalyptic, survival genre...man will this show be a treat! This dystopian, sci-fi drama succeeds a fictional nuclear war that eliminates all terrestrial life, leaving only the citizens up in orbiting international space stations as [...]
Hello fellow writers! I wrote this poem quite a while back and I felt like sharing it today. Instead of wasting life wishing for more materialistic things, we must remember to treasure the people and the things that we already have. If we take them for granted, they just might slip away and it will [...]
Riptide by Vance Joy was released in late 2013 and its sweet ukulele chords and lyrics still reach through to me every time I hear it. The reason for this is because two summers ago, in the final months before I moved from my hometown, my close friend made a slideshow of pictures and used this song in the background. This song reminds me of her and I feel that this is why this song always takes me to such a deep place. I’ve always enjoyed the song solely for this reason; never taking the time to actually try and understand the song’s lyrics. Now I have finally analyzed them and am feeling inspired to share what I feel the lines mean.
Before I begin, the lyrics of the song can be found here: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/vancejoy/riptide.html
A lyric video is also here if you’d like to hear it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUI5uLysKaE

Rating: 4/5 ***** What if I told you that with just 10 stories, 330 pages and an hilariously sassy drive for payback an author managed to capture the connection shared deep down in all humans. Jo Knowles achieves this remarkable feat through her witty yet deep novel "Read Between the Lines".
