Defeating the Darkness

Posted on November 13, 2018

Whenever I get too down on myself, it’s mostly because I’ve become too caught up in my everyday life. Work, bills, laundry, taxes, dishes, etc. No matter what I do to try to remedy the “everyday blues” – it can be hard to pull myself from the oppressive black hole of the mundane. At that point, I try to take stock of my surroundings. I remember that ultimately it’s the things I choose to do, the things I’ve been courageous enough to try, the things I partake in to set off the constant edge I feel. Those things are all more important to me in the long run than the momentary stresses and anxiety of the day-to-day. I’m no musician, but I’ve spent a…

My Top Ten Favorite Albums

Posted on June 17, 2018

I haven’t done a Top Ten list in quite some time, so now’s as good a time as any to list my TOP TEN FAVORITE MUSIC ALBUMS. My music tastes have gone all over the place as I’ve grown as a person, but mostly – my top ten favorite albums stay the same. Or, at least they have for a while. These albums have seen me through some interesting times in my life, and so I’m excited to share them with you and also share why I like them. While they are listed in “top ten” order, I feel like each album sort of moves around depending on my mood – so by no means is the order set in stone. It’s just an…

Posted on January 5, 2016

*Blog Post Photo by Aubri Hoffman Friend Files is a feature I added to my blog, Away With Words, a while back – this being the 22nd installment.

Today, I will be talking about Derek Hoffman. Before I get into what I think of him, here is…

My Top Ten Favorite Male Actors

Posted on October 18, 2015

For this edition of Top Ten, I’ve decided to focus on my top ten favorite male actors. Hey, now – the ladies are coming in another post (sneaky way to get multiple posts, eh?), so just relax. For each actor, I’ll give a brief explanation of why I like them and then post three pics. The Good (Best Role), The Bad (Worst Role), and The Sexy (A ‘Sexy’ Pic Because Why Not? They are celebrities after all, right?). With all that said, let’s begin. 10. LIAM NEESON Liam Neeson definitely deserves to be in my top ten. He’s Irish (like me), kicks a lot of ass, and has starred in some heavy roles. Whenever I see a Liam Neeson film, I know I can…
