Movie Nights

Back in my Bluefield College days, specifically during my sophomore year, my roommates and I played host to a weekly movie night. Typically, these would happen sometime on Wednesday evenings, after the Baptist Student Union's weekly Bible study/worship time that we called GAP (Growth And Praise).

That Time I Got Tricked Into Watching Peppa Pig

I recently took a trip down to Raleigh for a friend's daughter's high school graduation. It's funny... A few months ago, I remember talking with coworkers about how I don't understand why people voluntarily go to graduation ceremonies. There's nothing entertaining about them.

But, in those five years, I have never run into a single … Continue reading The People You Don’t See

Question of the Week #108

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you've never met. Would you want to go if you had to go by yourself? A social butterfly like me? No, probably not. Wait, how fascinating are we talking? Is it, like, a list of every person I've ever thought would … Continue reading Question of the Week #108

A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Elsa

I know. Elsa is not a princess. Once we hit the second act of Frozen, Elsa makes it through the coronation ceremony and becomes a queen. She's only a princess for the first 15 minutes of the movie. She is not included on Disney's official list of princesses, nor is her sister, Anna. As a … Continue reading A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Elsa
