Protecting My Dinner

Sometimes, you have to tell the waitress you are NOT done with your food.

Protecting My Dinner


You’re at a restaurant. It smells of heaven and bliss. You finally seated, you already know what you are going to eat but suddenly they pass you a menu. And you will have to rethink what you want because you wish you could not only order the shrimp scampi, but the haddock looks amazing and the steak tips look almost too good and the right amount of tender.

So now you order. It is time the waitress demands to know what you want for dinner. She probably does not actually demand, but you’ve taken decades to decide on what you want, so you sense the impatience.


Steak tips it is… you’ve been craving them any way.

You’re munching away… loving every bite.

You get a bit fuller and fuller.

But you got to finish it.

You got to finish those steak tips, mashed potatoes and carrots.




Waitress comes and asked if you’re all done, but before you get a chance to answer the last mashed potato bite you wanted is gone…

Vanished, all you have left is the last couple muches you have left chewing between your teeth.

I have a confession. The “you” here is actually me. This happens on numerous occasions. All I want is to have that last crunchy fry, last crouton and wonton.

Next time, I will open my mouth and say NO. I am not finished.

I will have my Veggie-ence.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Entertainment – YouTube

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
