The Mind Of A Writer

The term “mad scientist” came from Frankenstein’s Monster and it is rather old school, yet it has stuck with people for generations. But what about “mad writer?” Even though this is not a popular term, or a term that has been used at all, I am deeming it to be true. Despite my rambling, I…

Welcome To Scorpio Season

The ocean is beautiful and dangerous. It’s beauty comes from its crashing waves and soothing sound. It’s danger comes from the mystery within that not even humans can fully discover. We are easily seduced by it even if we don’t submerge our bodies in it. The ocean has a way of reeling us in then…

So You Think Astrology Is Fake?

Upon Googling “why people don’t believe in astrology,” I came across this phenomenal article by QUARTZ titled “Astrology isn’t fake—it’s just been ruined by modern psychology” and I encourage you to take ten minutes out of your day to read it.

God Is Not Free

I read Clarke’s theory of whether or not God can do evil as God choosing to not do evil which, in turn, means that He is not free. I believe that having the power to do something is not the same as having the freedom to do something. Samuel Clarke’s theory of whether or not…

Welcome To Virgo Season

This past spring in 2020, one of my best friends and I were at Taco Bell talking about how weird it was going to be after college graduation. That is, before we realized it was going to be canceled due to COVID-19. She said to me “This is going to sound crazy, but I love…
