I’ve heard this term a lot recently, especially in business settings, because there is a need to let employees innovate and take charge of their own destinies while keeping in mind the bottom line. When you think about it, revolutions start behind closed doors, after many dissenting voices get organized from the back of the […]
The world of Westeros and the fourteen seas is unique in nature. Whatever occurs in that world is guided by a few misunderstood or overlooked principles. To be able to introduce magic, dragons and the undead, George R.R. Martin had to forgo traditional concepts, which was easier to do by using a medieval setting for […]
Life plays out like a tragedy. In the end, we all die. The journey plays out like a novel, written by the hand of the indelible gods; the entropy of our lives resolved by eternal slumber. Those who remain alive, left behind by those they loved and have risen to the heavens, have to deal […]
Voices (A Poem)
They tell me what to do and I listen, Taking turns to impart their wisdom. Calculating, methodical, completely anachronical, Pushing me to color outside the lines, To embrace anarchy and rebel. Walking the halls of memory, I can hear them all clearly, The voices of those whom I lost, Jimminy Crickets, In my head, Pulling […]
I’m Here for The Groom (A Poem)
I’m here for the man who helped me with my thermodynamic’s homework, For the dude that told my ex to back off when I left him for my now husband, For the Starcraft nerd that let me create a Space Marine fleet when the guys in the room doubted my “strategery”. I’m here for the dude […]

Japanese Anime is riddled with stereotypes and tropes, especially when it comes to women. From the way they are designed, clothed and inserted into the story, female characters are prone to bring ditzy, big busted and one-dimensional, and even the ones that are luckier and get a good personality ir quest still fall prey of […]
What I like about you the most is your friendly stare, The warmth of your embrace. The encouragement in your whispers. What I like about you the most is the passion in your speech, The many times you claim my heart, my mind and spirit by just being you, By fighting for a world that’s […]
Turning 30 is Tricky
Lets face it, by the time you turn the big 3-0 people expect you to have your house decorated like a Pottery Barn catalogue instead of showcasing proudly all of your Voltron action figures and memorabilia. Over my dead nerdy body! It is as if by decree you must become a functioning adult who has […]
Château Enginerd became ours a few weeks ago but it wasn’t truly move in ready. The to do list for the builder was 20 articles long and it is still being worked on. Because I thought it would be a good project, we asked that the master bedroom closet be left pristine so we could […]
