These are a Few of My Favorite Things (of 2012)

I’ve been quite inspired by all the “Favorites” lists publishing on blogs across the world, so I thought I’d succumb to peer pressure and create my own. But since I couldn’t decide what category of list to create (music, movies, books, technology, celebrity blunders), I figured I would do a catch-all list. So here it is: My  … Read more

In Memory of Blake Snyder and John Hughes

What a sad, sad week. I know most of you know who John Hughes is. He pretty much shaped my pre-adolescent years with films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Sixteen Candles (my personal favorite–oh, Jake Ryan) and The Breakfast Club, but less of you might know who Blake Snyder is.
