Maybe it’s because my parents did a good job of raising me.

The 2018 year was one that ended up being way more exciting than I had ever anticipated.

I’ve got a confession to make, I just haven’t really been able to get into the Christmas spirit yet.

November is a special time of year.

It’s like a much less expensive Christmas since people always seem to think the two are the same. Yes, I see you people already playing Christmas music and putting up decorations.

I enjoy movies. I wish I had more money and time so I could go watch more of them, but I love movies.
