Even if there’s a small chance, we owe this to everyone who’s not in this room to try.
Everyone fails at who they’re supposed to be. A measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are.
No amount of money ever bought a second of time.
Turns out resentment is corrosive, and I hate it.
Avengers: Endgame was the culmination of 11 years of MCU movies, and like most everyone, I was very excited for it. I went to see it with my sister and three friends, and as the opening scene began, my gaze was locked on the screen. I couldn’t believe I was finally watching this movie.
But when I left the theater (three hours later!), I felt… unsatisfied. Had I enjoyed myself? Sure. Was the movie any good? Well, yes. But did I love it? Would I watch it again and again and sing its praises to anyone who would listen (as I’ve done with other movies)?
Well, it’s been over a week, and here I am again, but I still don’t have a normal post (honestly, I’m not sure what a “normal” post looks like for this blog yet anyway). But I just discovered this awesome book blogger award thing here at May’s awesome blog, and I decided to do it! (If you haven’t, but know an awesome book blogger or two or five, then I tag you to do this as well. Even though it’s not technically a tag.)
Click on the picture to read the rules and categories (and to nominate people if you don’t have a blog of your own or don’t want to write a post).
(Full disclosure: I’m not sure exactly what makes a blogger count as a “book blogger,” so if I nominate you but you’re not technically a book blogger, I apologize!)
This is supposed to be called the mid-year book freak-out tag (but I’m not freaking out – yet – plus no one tagged me). I don’t think I’m supposed to post posts (both of which are tags) so close together (but I’m doing it anyway). I don’t usually post about what I’m reading (but I’m going for it).
Salvete, amici! (That’s Latin, by the way.) I’m back, after an unplanned hiatus due to sickness, non-motivation, and an amazing but exhausting performing arts camp. (Emphasis on amazing – I danced to “Get Ready / Dancing in the Streets” from Motown, sang “Seize the Day” from Newsies, dramatically acted out some Scripture, and then danced to a clean Hamilton medley. It was one of the best experiences of my life so far.)
First, I stole it – with permission – from the amazing Evelyn, because I fall into three of the categories of people she tagged. Sadly, I’m not a character. Well, I’m a character in God’s Story, but I can’t post on His blog, can I?
And then I was tagged by the equally amazing R.M. Archer, so I thought I might as well combine both sets of question into one post.
Hello, world! It’s finally time to write my first post since my blog became public. I’m sorry I haven’t done this sooner, but I’ve been really busy (being on the crew for a musical is very fulfilling but utterly exhausting).
