    Book Review – The Good Morning Journal: 5-Minute Guided Reflections to Start Your Day with Inspiration, Purpose, and a Plan by Molly Burford

    Book Review The Good Morning Journal: 5-Minute Guided Reflections to Start Your Day with Inspiration, Purpose, and a Plan by Molly Burford Publisher: Adams Media 176 Pages Publication Date: June 1, 2021     I’d like to start with the fact that I approach journals like these with much excitement, but always with a dash of skepticism. With a journal, I hope to see some progression in the prompts, as a journal is usually (as expected) the same page copy and pasted throughout the whole book. I was firstly disappointed by the lack of such a progression in this book.  The journal invites you to take 5 minutes each morning…

    Witch and Popcorn

      Review of The Guilt Trip     Seth Rogen fans got an extra special treat when he teamed up with the goddess Barbara Streisand as a mother/ son pair in the hysterically funny film The Guilt Trip. You can watch the side-splitting funny trailer here:     In the film, Rogen plays Andy Brewster, an extremely intelligent under achiever who has more education than accomplishments. He’s spent every penny of his inheritance to invent, and produce his so-called wonder cleaning product, ScieoClean- and doesn’t understand why nobody is buying it. He’s chronically single, lives in a lousy apartment, and doesn’t even have any friends. Not only that, he’s chronically…
