Newbies, up incoming, indies. All of these words mean that there’s beautiful things to be heard, read, or watched that aren’t getting the press and media they need.
I’m a lover of discovering new and exciting things. From tech to entertainment. I seek out and search for things and people to listen to as they lend their voices to society.
I picked out five creative wonders to share with you all and one bonus film that I’m sure you’ve all hear of by now.

Who doesn’t love suspense and murder? This book has them both. The plot thickens as well as pulls you into an era from the past. Soon to be released check out a preview on his website drchetadamsforum.com
To round up some great entertainment and exciting work. I wouldn’t be a real superhero fan if I didn’t include today’s newly released Black Panther. The anticipation for this movie has been hugely important. The weekend is around the corner and what a great way to relax and enjoy it.

Early on a Sunday morning. It’s peaceful light from the television and chatter from the show playing is relaxing.
My mind is at ease.
I had a drama free birthday. Whaaat. It’s almost unbelievable.
My Saturday was awesome. I went to dinner with the ladies on Friday night and hung out a seen Daddy’s Home part two Saturday. It was pleasantly delightful and full of the Christmas spirit. Seeing men being family focused and laughing with my high school friend Nani made the day wonderful.
I got my favorite cake! Woo woo!!! It was definitely delicious.
Even though my life is in transition I’m not worried. My Nebraska friends and family have had me covered. I’ve been visiting and catching up on the past five years.
It’s bittersweet to have to storytell my journey. Accessing the painful memories of the past isn’t always comfortable but it’s a healing process. I have to say that I’m on the right path for that.
Love is a lifestyle choice.
I’m glad that I’m surrounded by it and that I now receive it as much as I give it. I’m stepping back and allowing time to deal with situations that require me to let go and let God handle them. I’m thankful and it feels good.

It’s 3:29 in the am and I just finished watching Almost Christmas. It’s a movie that came out around my birthday which is very close to Christmas time.
I’m up laughing a little too hard and maybe a little too loud 😹. I just can’t help myself. When I hear something that I think is funny I have to laugh. And unfortunately for me it doesn’t matter where or what time in the wee bit early morning.
I’m glad I got to watch the movie again. It gave me the same happiness and smiles that I got on my birthday when I took myself alone to the movie theater to see it for the first time. I walked out happy then and I’m surprisingly happy now.
See I may not be where I want to be but I’m still enjoying myself along the journey.
There’s a saying that most doesn’t count. But sometimes almost is the entrance to the next or the right direction when we were close to achieving a dream, but needed more instruction. In a part of the movie the Dad said “help others and if you can’t help them then at least don’t hurt them”.
I’ve almost done a lot of things. Some were good and some were bad. Some were helpful some were hurtful. I’m growing and learning each day to become a better person. And each time I’ve had to get out here and figure it out. Sometimes almost having something gave me more time to figure out life’s equations.
Almost where I want to be but enjoying the present moment when I can

Being a kid growing up in the 80’s was the coolest experience. It was right after flower power but right before the pop culture faze…
All the best kinds of teenie bopper movies were made…16 Candles and the Breakfast Club. Pretty woman and La Bamba. School daze and comedies like Harlem Nights.
I used to listen to Debbie Gibson and Wham..I loved the Bangles and EnVogue.
Life was simpler and learning about love and hope of a relationship were things I learned from movies and TV shows. A young midwestern girl before the streets grabbed a hold of her. The falseness of a happy ending is embedded in my brain. The simplicity that true love conquers all.
Some kind of wonderful gave me a vision where the girl wasn’t the typical beauty queen or the popular chic. The girl was a tomboy like me and a kindred soul like me and in love with a guy…like me…I revisited this movie and that feeling I had hoping for a love where friends became the happy ending. And love was the some kind of wonderful.
I still hope for this love…I didn’t pick the best relationships in the past but I believe it’s available in my future…
Love n light…til next time ✨
