Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey – A Masterpiece Worth Every Minute

If you love learning about science and be fascinated by realistic, 3D animated images of space and the microscopic world, this is the show for you. It is on Netflix, and comes on ABC.

Join astophysicist Nail deGrasse Tyson on a journey through history, space, and time. Answering questions about what came to be, how it came to be, and what may come in the future, through stories of humankind’s quest to answer scientific questions with no easy answers. Enter the unknown realm as you explore galaxies right on your couch, witness historical scientific breakthroughs, and gaze at the beauty that is the universe.

I was awed from the first five seconds into this movie-like show. The images are mesmerizing, detailed animations of epic stars, planets, galaxies, and the like, and the soundtrack is so like Seth MacFarlane–orchestrial music will send shivers down your spine. If I could give this a 6 out of 5 stars, I would, because a 5 out of 5 wouldn’t be enough. This is truly a masterpiece.

Happy 2018!

I’m sure 2017 wasn’t the best for many of us. Perhaps for others it was the best year they’ve ever had, whether it was good financially, socially, or spiritually.

However your 2017 was, hopefully 2018 will be even better–and it will be better. Make sure your new-year resolutions aren’t too crazy. Baby-steps, baby-steps! Enjoy your time with family, friends, or alone (whether you’re glad to be alone or not), and have a fantastic new year!

Nothing in my life makes sense anymore. The things I thought I knew have been twisted, and the people I’ve known all my life seem to be turning against me. My own faith is being questioned, and now the danger I was warned about in the beginning is becoming a reality. I have to re-learn everything, and quickly. The only redemption in my sanity left is the little light growing inside me.

 

This is the sequel to Blue Roses. If you think Dark Pedals is going to be interesting, Blue Roses is where it all began. Click here to buy Blue Roses on Amazon!

Introverts Don’t Quite Understand Extroverts, Either

Partying, taking pictures together, making friends with total strangers, bright, attention-getting colors, skinny-dipping–these are just a few things that make introverts want to scratch their heads (I should know!). At least 70% of the human population is extroverted–and, it makes complete sense. It’s our innate desire to connect with people, whether they are family or neighbors, that made us sprout into the population we have today (7-freaking-BILLION people).

So, as an introvert, we should take part in this ever-lasting party, right?

Right?…Guys? Where are you going!? Wait! Wait for me…!

The Beauty of Wicca

This has always been my favorite art-piece, depicting the universal, eternal love of Mother Goddess and Father God. Source

Kidist had hit rock-bottom–from her in-laws stealing money, food, and abusing her credit, her own family not taking her in, and a small child to take care of, she was at odds with the world.

With over 40 shares on Facebook and on DeGrathier combined, Kidist was able to get some funds for her time in need. She was surprised–she cannot tell you how grateful she is that people actually care, and are willing to help!

Moana Review – The Soundtrack Makes Me Want To Cry

In an ancient world, Moana is a princess next in line to lead her village on the island. She longs to travel across the ocean, explore what lies there beyond the horizon. However, her family forbids it in fear for her safety, initiated by a tragic event that banned all boats as well as people from going near the water. When a curse reaches Moana’s island, she sets out to find the only one responsible for her villagers’ demise: Demigod Maui.

Out of 5 stars, this is a 4 out of 5 for sure. Without giving out spoilers, Moana has a detailed, emotional script, as well as an astounding soundtrack that Disney is known for. The main reason this did not get a full 5 stars was that some things within the movie left holes in the back-story. I feel that a deeper explanation would have made the movie more memorable in general.
