The Deepening Divide

It breaks my heart to see how divided people in the US are becoming over issues of race, gender, sexuality and other such topics. I was born and grew up in the 1970s and 80s. I saw a lot of progress being made towards people seeing each other as human beings. Looking at the individual …

Goodbye Bubblews

For the past year or so I’ve been posting articles in a site known as Bubblews. As of today, November 15, 2015, it was officially shut down with the following message. The writing had been on the wall, so to speak, for awhile now. There hadn’t been much interaction from staff or moderators in months …

My Fan Fictions

As of this post I have a total of 21 fan fictions written, 18 of which are complete and three that are still works-in-progress. My first attempt was a small filler piece for Sailormoon. I was re-reading the original Manga and I was struck with an idea of a missing scene or two that I …

NaNoWriMo

Summer is fast coming to an end and my favorite season is approaching. I have always loved Autumn, with the changing leaves, the crisp air and the return of wearing comfy sweaters. This Autumn I am planning try something I never thought I would – I’m going to participate in NaNoWriMo. For those of you …

Breaking Through the Weight Loss Barrier

So, not everyone who reads this blog would know this – I have talked about this on my YouTube channel before, but not a lot in this vlog. I’ve been struggling for years to lose weight. In the past 4-5 years I hit some of the highest weight I’ve ever weighed, finally topping at 196.5lbs …

Dragon Age Obsession

I discovered Dragon Age a bit late. Six years late as a matter-of-fact. It all began with Electronic Arts offering Dragon Age: Origins for free last November. I downloaded it to take advantage of the offer, but didn’t really think much about it. I was enjoying the newest World of Warcraft expansion and also still …

A Solution for Bullying

Bullying and what to do about it has been a hot topic for awhile now. There are lots of anti-bullying campaigns, trying to educate kids and parents about why it’s wrong to be a bully. I think in some cases we are getting a little extreme on the anti-bullying front, where in some cases a …

Sailor Moon Crystal: Why All the Complaints?

I’ve been seeing a lot of negativity around the new Sailor Moon Crystal series, primarily from Western Viewers and I really need to say my peace about this. I think a big part of this negativity is coming from people who literally grew up in the 1990s watching the original dubbed version of Sailor Moon, …

Sailor Moon: Helping Me Relive my Childhood Fantasies

I will openly admit that I am somewhat (ok completely) obsessed with Sailor Moon. Now that Sailor Moon Crystal is airing, I can’t get enough (and having one episode every 2 weeks is virtually *killing* me!). Why am I so obsessed though? It must seem weird that a middle-aged woman would be so obsessed with …
