Instagram and Twitter are full of three-picture collages as users are challenged to describe themselves in three fictional characters.

Life story will add a chapter this summer

As I approached the brightly lit marquee of the Franklin Theatre, my whole body shook with a mixture of nerves and excitement. “World Premiere: Karen Kingsbury’s ‘The Bridge Part 2’” flashed before my eyes and I almost had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. I was moments away from being in the same room as my favorite […]

Europe trip rekindled thrill of adventure

Huge snowflakes fell gently from the sky as we walked the narrow, cobblestone streets of Zurich?s old town. The majestic spires of the city?s historic churches jutted above the snow-covered rooftops, and the slopes of the Swiss Alps peaked through the fog in the distance. I breathed in deep and took in the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. It was moments like […]

Currently, I?m hardcore obsessing over a movie series I never really thought I would be interested in: ?Star Wars.? Prior to August, my ?Star Wars? knowledge and […]
