Missing Those Summer Days…


Summer is that time of year, for me, that really makes life worth living.  Days filled with sunshine and blue skies.  Days where the weather outside may be way too warm out, but that doesn’t really matter so much because swimming in a pool or the beach is always there.  And lastly, it’s been the days of summer that, in the past, had always been able to bring a sense of hope and happiness to me that today would be a good day.

Trying To Get Past Those Winter Blues… Oh, hey Seasonal Depression!


When I was younger and heard phrases like “winter blues” or “seasonal depression”, I never really quite understood it.  I never understood why just because winter comes a knocking on back into town why that would affect someone’s mood.  As I’ve gotten older, I get it.

The extreme cold in the air, along with early afternoons of the sun going away to make room for darkness in the sky are just a few reasons why I now understand why the months of winter would make someone’s attitude go from joyful to “eh”.

The Part of Writing That I Don’t Care For…..

I love writing.  To be able to express your thoughts through simply your words alone, is just the best.  Over the last year or so, writing has come to be an outlet for me through which I can talk about anything that I so choose.  On my blog, I’ve talked about everything from Pop Culture to Friendship.  Writing is just an amazing way to express one’s outlook on life.

Seriously, though… I Miss Summer!


It’s been a little over a week ago now since the month of December has arrived back on into town.  It’s a month filled with holiday cheer and joy.   It’s a time of year when the movie “Frozen” and its cast of characters pop up on the mind, with Elsa singing “Let It Go” in the background.  You know… Fun stuff!  On the opposite side of that fun, it’s also a month filled with cold, a month into that “glorious” thing of daylight savings (why daylight savings… but why??????), and another month I just long for the good old days of summer. Continue reading “Seriously, though… I Miss Summer!”

Buster The Cat….

jodi - buster the catOkay, so you know that person that absolutely adores animals but from afar? And if that animal were to go near them, that person would then shriek and go “AHHHHH!!!!” and start to run away frantically looking like an idiot out of fear. Yeah, I’d be that very person. That very same person who would go, “Awwwww, your the cutest” from afar and then get totally scared if the animal were to run up to them. Continue reading “Buster The Cat….”

I Will Forever Be That “Lisa Frank Fangirl”!

jodi Lisa FrankAs someone who grew up in the 1990’s, Lisa Frank merchandise was literally everywhere and everything. If you saw a unicorn sticker, you knew it was from Lisa Frank. There were stickers, notebooks, pencils and pens, folders, binders, and so much stationary. It was as if someone’s imagination went wild and was brought to life in the form of stationary. It was simply awesome! Continue reading “I Will Forever Be That “Lisa Frank Fangirl”!”

A Little Tree on a Beach I named Sandy Sue

I decided when I finally got around to starting this blog, I would write about more than just the happiness and excitement that I feel for pop culture. I would also write about how I feel about life. How the simplest of things can bring someone happiness, if even just for a moment in time. Continue reading “A Little Tree on a Beach I named Sandy Sue”
