Who are you, really?

From the Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield can never say that’s he’s scared of the future. Because he’s a teenage boy and expressions and emotions aren’t cool. He talks through analogy, like the duck, fish, and pond analogy. He can’t express himself in words. Instead, he expresses himself through something I like to call “Caulfield” language.

Why Do We Use Language?

Language is our primary method of expressing feelings, emotions, desires, and warnings, as well as to share information.  Language can be written or verbal, and through the proper use of just the right words, language can be a powerful tool to guide the reader (or listener) to think or act in just the way the author intends.

The Pizza Crust

Baking a good pizza crust can be difficult. Not only do you have to make it just he right fluffiness level, but you also have to add your own flair to it.

There are many different paths you can follow to make it original and memorable. Dominoes goes for the seasoning. Costo tries to make it light and airy. Pizza hut tries to make it cruchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Shakey’s looks for the perfect bubbles (those golden orbs that are filled with air and are covered in metled cheese).

There are so many pizza placces out there that it is hard to always make your pizza memorable. Pizza places have to accept the fact that they won’t be loved by everyone. For instance, I will never volunteer to go to Dominoes, but my father loves to eat there. Pizzzerias need to accept that just because someone orders pizza there once, doesn’t mean that that pizza place will always be their favorite. Maybe one bad experience will scar that pizza goer for life and they won’t go there anymore.

So maybe there is more than just the crust that goes into the perfect pizza, but at least you can control your crust. You make your crust how you like it, how you think it should be, and if people don’t like it then they don’t have to eat it.

Personally, I prefer the pizza crusts with bubbles on the ends and chewy in the middle.

The Love of My Life

Television shows. I am definitely a fan girl and have many fandoms. I am not afraid to say it. I have an obsession.

Right now is the worst part- hiatus.

heartland promo picI am going through withdrawal symptoms. I am frantically rewatching old episodes trying to keep my mind off of the fact that my favorite show Heartland has a 6 month break (4 months to go-128 days). They have started filming and are giving cryptic statements about the new season (season 9).

I am trying not to fantasize too much of what the season will bring for I don’t want to be let down. But as a fangirl, I can’t help it. I can’t help but think of what being on set is like. What the scripts are. The atmosphere. Continue reading The Love of My Life
