Monday Madness 12.5.16

Dec 5, 2016
Hey ya'll. I'm dusting off the cob webs from this little space of mine. I haven't posted in over 6 weeks, and what started as a 'I'm too busy to post' became a conscious break from blogging. Sometimes you need to step away from things to remember how much you really love it.

October and November were really hard months for me. Thinking about the holidays coming up and being so far from home puts me in a full blown depression. It didn't help that I hadn't been home in two years. I miss the familiarity of my hometown, but mostly miss my parents and siblings and my two wonderful nieces.

I had put in for time off at the beginning of October to get home for Thanksgiving. My days got denied which did not help with my mental health. To my suprise the week before Thanksgiving my days got approved! I need a nice, yet too short, time in Pennsylvania with my family for the holidays!

I hope you all enjoy this photo dump, and understand how truly happy I was to be back home!

5 Shows To Start Binge Watching This Weekend

Oct 28, 2016
//1// Amanda Knox 

Monster or victim? British student Meredith Kercher was murdered Nov. 1, 2007, in Peruga, Italy. Knox, Kercher's roommate and an American student studying abroad, and her Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were arrested and convicted of the murder. Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison, Sollecito to 25.

Three years after Rudy Guede was convicted for the murder and sexual assault of Kercher, the convictions of Knox and Sollecito were overturned in 2011, allowing Knox to return home to Seattle after spending four years in jail. But she and Sollecito were tried again in 2014, again found guilty, only to finally be exonerated by the Italian Supreme Court in 2015.

Amanda Knox gives the participants of one of the most sensational trials of the century a chance to tell their story, straightforwardly, directly to the camera. For a case that often seemed like a horror movie played out in the nightly news, this documentary allows the drama's main characters to step out from their media-crafted roles.
