"Mirror, Mirror"

Life is chock full of simplicity. I just realized just how alone I feel. Then it donned on me. The reason for my loneliness was because I didn't have someone to talk to. You see, I don't have close friends, well at least close girl friends that I could chew the fat with. My chest feels heavy with the burden that I carry. I look at myself and all I see is an average girl, with pigtails, a flannel shirt, ripped blue jeans and worn sneakers.

I see a girl who doesn't make enough money to hang out with the popular girls. Instead I am a simple girl. Quiet. Distant. Just a girl. As my reflection stares back at me with scorn and resentment, I think about all the things I could have done differently. I wish that I could be different. Change my skin to fit what I believe to be beautiful. My hair. So coarse. True to its African nature. I just wish that I was different. I wish I was someone else. Not what I see.

I have no girl friends to call me and check up on me. No one to hangout with. No one to say, "Hey, let's hangout today." I tear myself away from looking glass and pick my phone. No messages. I put it down expecting nothing more.

Now, I stand here alone...

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
