A new month a new background!

Its officially October and I've got a new background!


Granted the orange and purple don't quite match but its Halloween colors so I went with it. I had a hard time deciding on what kind of wall paper I wanted because nothing really stood out to me so I did a little digging and I finally found a vintage photo that I liked.


Let me know what y'all think I'd appreciate any opinions!

Now Playing: Audrie and Daisy





















A look at the effects that online bullying has on the lives of teenagers and their community.


























Family, victims, and schoomates discussing cases of the girls who were victimized by their attackers and communities and friends in their schools that led to the eventual death of Audrie.

The film discusses bullying and social silence of people they considered friends and the onslaught of attacks at the hands of those they used to trust as well as the affect that cyber bullying has on the lives of the girls who are victims of sexual assault.

Daisy tells her story after a night of drinking where she and her friend were sexually assaulted by her brothers friends while intoxicated.

Sexual assault is never okay and I think its a shame that these communities have supported the attackers instead of the victims and that the most they got was a slap on the wrist for what they did. What's worse is that their attackers felt no remorse for what they had done to these girls or the affect it had on their lives and the lives of their families.

I am glad to see that Daisy as well as many other girls who have been made victims have found a network of people to provide them support.

This film is heart wrenching, emotional, and inspiring at the same time. I highly suggest people of all ages and genders see this film.

Movie Night: Vintage Tomorrow


















VINTAGE TOMORROWS examines Steampunk's origins, explosive growth, and cultural significance. Is the Steampunk movement a homogenized, privileged subculture or a reclamation of technology from the hands of Silicon Valley?




















Vintage Tomorrows is a fantastic gathering of minds surrounding the Steampunk movement embracing hope for a more beautiful future. Its a wonderful documentary journey into the world of Steampunk and why its followers are so drawn to it.

Vintage Tomorrow also includes several interviews about the reality of its origins and the possibilities that it can encourage in others in how it inspires many people across many fields and how it can change the world if people allow it.

Steampunk is fun, its unique, and its inspiring.

Also for fans of Gail Carriger get bits of her engagement and wedding among their friends who follow the movement themselves and get to explain why they love it so much. Carriger also explains how Steampunk inspired herself and many others to include Steampunk as a part of their everyday lives.

Dangerously Charming (Broken Riders #1) by Deborah Blake


Dangerously Charming (Broken Riders Novel, A) - Deborah Blake

Ever since a near-fatal mistake stripped Mikhail Day and his brothers of their calling to be Riders, Day has hidden from his shame and his new, mortal life in a remote cabin in the Adirondack mountains. But when a desperate young woman appears on his doorstep, he cannot resist helping her—and cannot deny how strongly he’s drawn to her...
For generations, women in Jenna Quinlan’s family have been cursed to give up their first born child to the vengeful fairy Zilya. When Jenna finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she is determined to break her family’s curse and keep her baby, even if it means teaming up with a mysterious and charismatic man with demons of his own...
To unravel the curse, Jenna and Day will have to travel deep into the Otherworld. But the biggest challenge of the journey might not be solving an ancient puzzle but learning to heal their own broken hearts.









I felt really bad for Jenna, she's got so much going and so much hurt and buried emotions that her out burst was like an eruption once it happened. 

She was still feeling like a pawn which sucked.

Jenna felt like the kind of person who was stuck in a situation where her life was a series of events dictated by other people's actions.

It made her easy to relate to and sympathize with because that kind of thing can really suck. I really liked seeing Jenna coming into herself through the journey.

Dangerously Charming was my favorite so far.
