Women Aren’t Funny. A New Documentary

Woman Laughing

Yesterday, I watched a documentary on Netflix produced by a female comedian called, “Women Aren’t Funny.” I never really thought about the question of whether women were funny or not prior to watching the film. My first thought was, “Of course women are funny,” but the documentary gave me pause. I tried to think of … Read more

Thoughts on the Josh Duggar Debacle

I don’t watch TLC’s show, 19 Kids and Counting, because I have no interest in the lives of an uber-religious family with an excessive number of children. In fact, I didn’t even know the show existed until scandal erupted surrounding the oldest child in the Duggar family, Josh Duggar. A tabloid recently leaked that Josh … Read more

A Legitimate Investigation into the Possibility of Alien Visitors

I wrote a while back about the Fermi Paradox which basically states that given the age of the universe and the number of habitable planets that should exist, that advanced extraterrestrials species should have visited us many times over by now and poses the question, “So, where are they?” You can read the post here. … Read more

I Just Got Accepted to University of Illinois as a Computer Science Major!

Acceptance Letter to University of Illinois Springfield

I am over the moon about this but I am also at a major crossroads in my life. I applied for a scholarship that would have paid for my college education but I didn’t get it. I was a semi-finalist but semi-finalists get $0 for college. I am permanently disabled but I really want a … Read more

Display Social Media Icons at Top and Bottom of WordPress Post

How to Be a Force for Good

Girl with Star Wand

I considered naming this post “How to Be a Good Person” but I don’t believe there are good people and bad people any more than there are good bats and bad bats. The only thing that separates us from other species is our extraordinary capacity for compassion and our high level of self-awareness. If we … Read more
