NaBloPoMo and Ideas: Day 2 and Already Struggling
This will be a rough NaBloPoMo, even though my head is swimming with ideas. Here’s a few of them.
I Survived Jaws, And I’m Better For It
After pushing, daring, myself to see Jaws Sunday night, I have many thoughts on the film, and my state of mind now.
