It has been a while since my last post, I know. I have been so caught up with work at my college. Yes, I'm a college student in my third year. I'm taking more units than usual this semester, and one I must say is Creative Writing: Fiction. This is one course that is prepping me to actually write out one of my many story ideas. I'm happy to say that I'm writing the first chapter, and soon will be critiqued at an upcoming workshop next month. I'm pretty excited! Out of the many ideas I have written since high school, I'm confident on one that came to me this past summer. These past few weeks have been pretty encouraging, and I'm just delighted to continue on this path.
I'm new to blogging (since August) and have really enjoyed my first couple of months. I have always wanted to write my opinion and recommend great novels, films, tv shows, music etc. Now is my opportunity, and thus far, it has been very satisfying. There is more to come! :)
Another thing I want to mention: I'm participating in a book tour and can't wait! It's for Author Michelle Madow's novel, Remembrance. My date is on November 25, so tune in, and for the other blogs before/after me, as there are many blogs featuring Remembrance. I have a link attached here to her site, so you can check out Michelle's Blog and the tour dates with the different Blogs that will be featured. November will be an eventful month, hope to hear from you!

I just finished watching the first season of The Good Wife, and I wonder: Why have I not seen this show before! It’s such a great idea for TV! This show illustrates to us what happens to the Politicians wife once a scandal has hit public. We see through the media of this situation and some may think: What is going to happen to the wife? How will she deal with this major change in her life and for her family? What is she thinking? Some may or may not think of these questions, but this show gives the answers. It includes the main character, Alicia Florrick, who is the spouse of a popular State Attorney of Illinois, Peter Florrick. He gets intertwined into two separate scandals, and is sent to jail. Alicia is then left with her two teenagers, and is the main figure of the house. She has not been by herself like this for about fifteen years. She goes back to work as a Junior Litigator at Lockhart and Gardner Law Firm. She works with one of her classmates and friend from Georgetown University, WiIl Gardner. This season deals with very interesting and intense cases. Each episode really makes you think along with the characters as they are trying to fight justice for their clients. Some of the episodes deal with Peter, as his own case is gradually being dealt with, and Alicia is wondering if she wants her husband back once he comes back home. All in all, the cast is phenomenal! The actors are all great and play their characters realistically, and you’ll see that from just the first episode. I highly recommend this show, for those have been interested, I’m saying watch it! It’s incredible! I plan to watch the second season soon, and hopefully will catch up on this third season that’s now back on TV. Down below there's a link to where you can purchase the first season. It includes six discs with deleted scenes and a documentary of the making of this show, the casting and everything like that. Hope you enjoy it, as I have! :)
