    Stuck Between A Bern and A Biden Place

    Anyone who follows me knows that I’m fiercely political. The why of that is a different conversation. We’re here to talk about where I sit currently, because not discussing it isn’t really my MO, but – like a great so many things – it’s a little bit too nuanced to get into on Twitter. Some house cleaning, before we get any further: I voted for Warren. I will vote for whoever wins the democratic nomination. I will passionately encourage other people to vote for whoever wins the democratic nomination. So, if I am a self-proclaimed fiercely political (and far-left leaning) person, then why have I been so quiet since Super…

    Mia’s 2020 Bullet Journal

    Hey Nerds! It’s been a minute. I am, as you may have noticed, absolutely terrible at keeping up with a blog. Turns out I write so much during the regular year that I just don’t really have the bandwidth. Though, every year I add it to my goals. We’ll see if it actually happens this year! In the interest of starting that off on the right foot, I wanted to take some time to break down this year’s bullet journal layouts. Bullet journaling can be daunting, especially when you see some of the insane stuff folks who devote a lot of time to it can pull off. Like keeping up…

    A Comedy of Errors – WrestleMania 35

    It’s completely bonkers to me that one week ago I was at WrestleMania. A million things feel like they’ve happened between now and then (which we’ll get into a little later). This was my second time going to the event, so I felt like I would have a little bit of a better idea of what to expect. Turns out I was completely wrong on that front, but still managed to have a pretty exceptional time. Like last year, my travel buddies and I spent some time at Axxess. For those of you who don’t spend time at these things (99% of my followers. Thanks for clicking on this post…

    Just Another SDCC Wrap-Up

    It’s been a week, and I have, no joke, just now gotten enough sleep where I feel like I have the energy to write this post. This year was my first adventure out to the fabled SDCC. The incomparable Kendall Ashley and I made a pact that we would go whether we got press badges or not after spending years dealing with Comic Con FOMO as all of our fellow journalists and friends covered the biggest show of the year.  So, we booked our flights, found an airbnb probably a little too far from the site, and eventually packed our bags and made our way to the convention. And then…

    Wonder Woman is both Messy and Perfect

    Post contains spoilers for the film Wonder Woman. Let’s cover something right out the gate: Wonder Woman has issues. The final battle left a lot to be desired and tasted way too much like something Snyder would do, there are strange editing choices, an overuse of slow motion in weird moments, some strange choreography/CGI woes sprinkled here and there, and some  downright odd directorial choices that left the actors looking… awkward. And I don’t care about any of that. Not at the end of the day, at least. That’s probably bad for me to admit as a critic. But me being a critic comes second to me being a woman.…

    A Jurassic World Adventure

    Hi new (and old) friends! For those who have known me for more than three seconds, you’re pretty aware that I have an obsession with dinosaurs. For anyone who hasn’t, yes, hi, hello. My name is Amelia and I really love dinosaurs. I think a big part of this can be attributed to the fact that the first movie I ever saw in theaters was Jurassic Park. I was four. Thanks, dad! Anyone who remembers the dinosaur situation in 1993 can tell you that We’re Back, A Dinosaur Story came out that year as well. Little me + lots of dinos = life long obsession. With all of that in…
