Love Of Reading

My affinity for reading began with Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It was my senior year of high school, and I hated assigned reading. I disliked being forced to read. As a kid, I read Goosebumps. My favorite is One Day at Horrorland, but any reading we were tasked I found to be the dullest. What I … Read more

What Do I Need To Improve?

I would definitely say that there’s room for improvement…for myself and my life. And, since we’re all staying home and trying to get through this pandemic, I can’t think of a better time to try and make some positive changes.

Pussy Drink

“I’ve got a pair of magic tits.” That was the first thing she told me as soon as we sat down. “Yeah, you have no idea. These babies are magical. Wanna know how?” I hesitated as if I wouldn’t be interested, but who am I kidding. Yes, of course, I would like to know just … Read more

Living My Bucket List

Life has a 100% mortality rate and we are not getting out of this life alive. So, why not live life to the fullest?! Okay, so that may sound a little morbid, but it’s true. So, why not throw all caution to the wind, or at least make a long list and start checking things … Read more
